Once again our expectations were exceeded by the staff at Pura Vida for our 3rd stay at this delicious hotel this year! We are addicted to the outstanding service, the beautiful and luxurious room as well as the wonderful pool/spa outdoor area. David, one of the owners, is, as always, a warm, welcoming host. If Mark, the other owner happens to be at the hotel, he, too , is an equally amazing host. Greg's attention to detail, wonderful personality and desire to offer any information about restaurants, mid century homes and general Palm Springs information is priceless. We originally switched to Pura Vida (from another hotel that we were very loyal to) was due to Greg accepting a new position and moving hotels so we moved along with him. We just booked our 4th stay at Pura Vida for 2013!
