The Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield, United Kingdom5 contributions5 helpful votes
Stayed here on last leg of our holiday in Costa Rica which had otherwise gone to plan. We landed just as CR closed due to Covid-19. We emailed ahead to make sure they were happy with us staying as long as we were allowed to stay. Finding the hotel was itself frustrating as the details given did not take us to the right place. It is hidden quite a way up a very steep hill. The advert said 5 mins from beach which it certainly isn’t. There was no spa offered, no beach bar as advertised (it’s not anywhere near a beach!), no washer drier in your room either or fitness centre as advertised. The french owner took us to our room and went to great lengths telling us how the lighting system around the bed would enhance our ‘performance” in bed! Our in-room coffee maker was not working and we were told we would have to wait 24 hours to get it changed as owner was out of town. Considering we were only guests I would have thought it could have been swapped, which it was later as we managed to mime to the maid what the problem was and she changed it. Breakfast is extremely overpriced so go prepared with your own or go to a local Soda for breakfast. Disaster struck on day 3 of 8 when our government insisted on repatriation back to the UK. We advised the owner we would have to leave the following morning and would it possible to get a refund for the nights not used. He confirmed it would in the circumstances and he wound sort it out when we checked out. Check out arrived next morning and he looked us in the eyes and advised he would speak with Hotels.com to confirm they would refund. Well since then he has told Hotels.com he flatly refuses to refund any money, despite Hotels.com requesting he does so in these exceptions times. He has not replied to any messages we have sent him or offered any alternative resolution. He states he lives by the ethos of Pura Vida but I don’t see how he can !!

AN ERROR AMONG MANY OTHERS! As indicated on all our reservation sites, the bar and restaurant is located on the beach 300 meters from the hotel, the "Father Roaster" as well as the "The Bulldog Gym". These services are chargeable. We also wish to remind our friendly customers that promotions valid for 8 nights are not valid for 3 nights! Breakfast prices (produce fresh local and seasonal produce on demand) start at $ 8.Thank you to all our customers because we were able to keep our employees! SEE YOU VERY SOON! FLO

The owners at Pura Vista, Flo and Sandra, take great pride in making you feel right at home during your visit. The rooms have a certain European charm to them (Flo and Sandra are French) and as the name suggests, the view from your room is breathtaking. MAKE SURE TO HAVE THEIR BREAKFAST.

This little 6 room B & B, hosted by Parisienne Flo and his family, is a little jewel perched on top of a tall hill, overlooking a valley full of birds and howler monkeys, with an unrivaled view of the ocean and Ocotal Beach. Flo was extremely accommodating to us the night we arrived, tired and hungry, and as he was no longer serving dinner, only breakfast, he offered to take us to Father Rooster Beachside Restaurant and come back and pick us up. The next night we managed the steep walk down the hill and back up to enjoy the same restaurant. As we had no car, our friendly neighbours drove us down the third night and we caught a cab back that last night. Breakfast is delicious; regular or continental style with bacon and eggs cooked to your liking, and superb coffee. Look for Johnny, the White-throated Magpie Jay, that comes to visit each morning for his marmalade treat. We enjoyed our lazy stay there, quite content to swim in the pool right outside our door and read our books in our private lounge chairs and visit with our friendly neighbours. If you have a car there are many nearby sights worth visiting according to our neighbours and posted signs and ads we saw.

The Hotel exceeded our expectations. The host Flo was incredibly welcoming,and provided superior breakfasts. The room was very “Parisian” boutique hotel, very clean comfortable beds and quiet. The pool and rooms had great vista over the ocean. A car would be a asset to access more locations for dinner. I would highly recommend.

We could not have started out our holiday in a better way. Impeccable. Clean, bright, comfortable with amazing views and excellent proprietor. A little difficult to navigate the roads at night to find our way as when didn’t have GPS but we asked for directions in the very friendly town and arrived to the owner waiting for us. Highly recommend!
