This is really one of the best tasting meals we had in Coco. Great food , cheap prices! We were disappointed the jerk chicken was sold out but the curry was excellent. Everyone was happy with their meal. Owner was friendly too.

“Creme de la Coco!!”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

It was my first time in Playa del Coco and Pure Vibes was highly recommended by my friends who visiited months before. The food was excellent. You must try the jerk chicken. It is to die for. The staff and owner were very friendly and eager to help no matter how small. The prices are reasonable for both food and accommodations. The rooms are clean. Pure Vibes is around the corner from the beach about a 3 minute walk and about 7 minutes to town and night life. You must meet Fred Locks, the owners dog. Soo cute!!! I really had a fantastic time and can't wait to return. I am already getting together a group of friends for my next trip.

“low offers,bad service”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

A very beautiful place with a very nice pool, but too noisy to foreign girls looking for boys.
I ate fairly well, a good rice, presented bad, poor service, good flavors but for one vote. It is not a place to come back several times. The low prices because it offers very little.
Hotel is not a restaurant.

“Quiet Inexpensive Venue”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We were staying right down the road so we decided to give it a shot since it was rated #3 in Coco. We liked it very much. We were the only ones here, but the service was excellent and the glaze/sauce on the fish on the plate de jour was exceptional. This is a backpackers hotel with a Jamaican theme, so the prices are quite reasonable for what you get. The restaurant overlooks the pool and an enclosed compound. Parking is very easy if you're driving or near downtown if you're walking (5 minutes probably). They serve till 7 PM (close at 8 PM) so not a late night spot, but I'd give them some business as they were a very nice group of folks to interact with. Sunday afternoons are supposed to be good for hanging out at the "largest pool in Coco" if you're a 20-something we were told. Lots of healthy looking European 20-somethings seemed to be staying here as they were heading out for the night while we were eating.
