    We really enjoyed our stay at Guesthouse Pura Vida. Jorge was an extraordinarily host who offered us suggestions of what to do, drove us to town, and even called a friend to take us to the bus when he was unavailable. The rooms are very clean. The breakfast is great and the value of this place is very good. Highly recommend.

    QUite out of town, about a 20 minute walk. However, you can catch lifts with the owners quite often (they are absolutely lovely and so accomodating and helpful), or walk to the main road and grab any car on the way to town. The rooms are super clean and smell nice, and the dogs are very sweet. It’s very relaxing here and very easy going. It’s also very good if like us you are learning Spanish as the owner is so patient and great to practice with.

    Jorge and Pamela were amazing hosts that made our stay quite wonderful. Its a new building so everything is in great order, bathrooms are clean and great. The atmosphere is very tight knit and makes it feel like one big family. The only drawback is it’s a bit out of town but that’s not an issue if you have a car. If not, taxis are cheap ($3 to town) and the family often gave us a ride when needed. Highly recommended!

    A little off the beaten path but was a nice break from the crowd of hotels near Manuel Antonio National Park. A convenient distance from both Quepos and Manuel Antonio we found the rooms to be extremely clean, comfortable, and spacious. The owners Jorge and Pamela were fantastic, great for suggestions or conversation and we found ourselves spending a lot of time in the common area talking, reading, and enjoying the vibe. I can definitely recommend if you are looking for the real Costa Rica.

    One of the nicest hostels I've stayed in. Extremely clean, fans in the rooms were awesome, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. A bit far from Quepos to walk but is only a short cab ride away. Would definitely recommend it.

    We booked Here and the Pipes had problems so we were sent to Paradiso Pez Vela, where we were told we had a room, but they didn’t communicate so Pez Vela has to find us a new place... not so great. Lack of communication! Different Hotel was ok for 1 night, Then we were put up Paradiso Pez Vela it was ok, definitely not worth the $! They regulated the A/C, and didn’t have a kitchen which is how we search for accommodations. We were not compensated AT ALL for the time/effort to find a new place.
