    • Another great stay at my favorite hotel in Alajuela

      Reviewed 28 August 2019

      Once again, Pura Vida Hotel continues to be my home base for any visit to Costa Rica and will remain so indefinitely. It's just minutes away from SJO airport and an oasis: beautiful gardens and views from the outdoor dining area. The rooms are exquisite and a total pleasure to stay in. I could easily live in the Katydid Casita for an extended period of time. The breakfast includes a variety of fruits, yogurt with granola, toast, coffee, and the most delicious bread pudding I've ever had. Thank you Berni! Your staff is attentive, friendly and wonderful all around. I'm looking forward to my next stay.

    • Never fails to amaze and please

      I've lost track of the number of times I've stayed here for the first and last nights of what are usually 2 week trips around Costa Rica. Hospitality is second to none; I always feel like one of the family (and did from the very first visit). Absolutely nothing to criticize here; I highly recommend using their rental car services where Alamo delivers and picks up your vehicle here. It may cost a little more but eliminates 100% of the major hassle of getting a rental car near the Airport. Have rented via PVH 3? 4? times and it's so easy. Their ongoing high ratings are 100% deserved. Would never ever stay anywhere else.

    • Garden Oasis Close to Airport

      Pura Vida is the perfect hotel for lodging close to the international airport or for exploring local attractions. The casitas are comfortable and spacious, breakfast is lovely & delicious, the gardens provide a peaceful space in the city and everyone at the hotel is welcoming and helpful.

    • The best start and finish to our Costa Rica adventure!

      Reviewed 14 August 2019

      On our first trip to Costa Rica, my husband and I stayed at Pura Vida the first night, and returned for our last night as well. The property is beautiful and interesting, making this so much more than just an overnight at a generic hotel. The accommodations were perfect, and the hospitality was unmatched.The first night we arrived late, and had ordered a late dinner. It was delicious, enjoyed with a bottle of wine in an idyllic garden setting. When my husband left a pair of prescription glasses after our last night in Costa Rica, Berni got them to us in NY quickly and without incident. We plan to return to Costa Rica and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else when in San Jose!

    • The perfect way to start our Costa Rica trip.

      Reviewed 12 August 2019

      From landing in Costa Rica, within an hour we were in the hotel with a beer in hand. The perfect, relaxed way to start the holiday. We'd been advised not to drive straight off the plane in CR as it gets dark early, and we were in the rainy season. So instead we'd booked into Pura Vida Hotel. We hopped into a (free) taxi from the airport and Bernie organised our car rental, to be delivered to the hotel, the following morning. Simple. We were lucky enough to have a meal at the hotel, which was really beautiful and one of the best meals I've eaten. Breakfast too, was lovely with amazingly beautiful fresh fruit, muffins and the cheesiest of omelettes.
