Stayed here for 4 nights and we were satisfied with it. The owner were very helpful and gave us suggestions about where we could go by car to se lovely surroundings and another beach than Drake bay. He could also help with tourbooking. The breakfast was included and they served us different ones every morning. It was absolute OK but had been the best if some fruit had been added. The room was clean and the shower had warm water. AC is working well. There were a table and chairs outside our room and that was to clean. They have a kitchen fully equipped with fridge, small freeze, wich you share with the other guests and it was very nice to have. It's only a short walk from the center and beach. It was quiet in the night and the bed were comfortable. I rekommend this place and if we come back we would stay here again.

Casa pura vida is a top place to be. We had a really good time with Norlyng and Gabi. Really clean rooms and bathrooms, breakfast is included and changes every day, fresh towels and sheets every few days, hammocks everywhere and a kitchen to make your own dinner. Norlyng brings you to whereever tours are starting and picks you up after. Since we booked all the tours with him Gabi did also our laundry twice!
Norlyng also arranges everything for you regarding your arrival and departure details (boat/bus/taxi). Which was really nice since he knows the right people.
We would definitely stay here again the next time!

The room was basic but clean and well-maintained. The owner, Norlyn, did a fantastic job scheduling guided adventures for us. He knows the guides and they were all skilled, knowledgeable, and professional. The horseback ride to a waterfall was unexpectedly lovely. We rode in a stream surrounded by jungle and we were able to swim in clear water below the falls.
Be sure to bring a lot of cash (US dollars are OK) because it is best to pay for everything in Drake Bay using cash.

Four of us stayed here for 3 nights in December 2016. The owners were very nice and helpful. The rooms were clean and big enough for all of us. We really loved the large communal kitchen and BBQ and the hammocks out front - we could cook and the kids could chill and visit. The breakfast was good and the sitting area is a nice place to watch the birds in the morning. Would definitely stay there again!

Service and kindness were great. Owner Norlyng Rojas was helpful in a any and all kinds of issues, such as transport, phone call to other lodges and our rental company etc. We even enjoyed a free barbecue when the village went out of electricity.
