    Make sure your travel companions are able to walk on uneven terrain, and are able to pull themselves into the back of a pickup truck to sit on bench seats while being shuttled around the resort property. We stayed in a villa which is at one corner of the resort. A shuttle will pick you up and transport you to the front desk, where you get off that shuttle and go through the lobby to wait for another shuttle to take you to the restaurant or to the beach. The restaurant was never crowded, nor did we have to wait to be seated. Food was a typical buffet, however, the fresh fruit was awesome. There was only one beer available, the local "Imperial" and it is on tap. Bring an insulated cup to enjoy your beverage pool side! There are some local restaurants that are very good, if you choose to skip the buffet while there. Ginger is within walking distance of the front gate, it serves tapas, and was a nice to gather with our travel companions and new friends we met in the resort. The restaurant on the beach next door was also very good. Since it was the dry season, the foliage was not beautiful as you may expect in the January. We visited CoCo beach, "Playas del Coco where there is shopping, restaurants, bars, and of course, the beach. Also we spent a day a Diamante Eco Adventure Park. They have options for ziplining, ATV riding, horseback riding, an animal sanctuary (sloths!) and the beach, a buffet lunch is included. I would love to go back to Costa Rica, and visit another part of the country.

    Very hilly terrain. Shuttles around the resort were not for the faint of heart. But it was very easy and timely to get from one resort amenity to another, Wish there were more options for eating, only one main restaurant. Mini-markets were very high priced and would not make change with American dollars. Money exchange varied a lot. Overall, very beautiful and relaxing atmosphere.

    Resort is built on a hillside, so not the most convenient for walking. Some units are very nice, while others need repair. Our AC didn't work in the master bed. They tried to fix, but no change. Patio furniture was broken. Views are beautiful! Food is so, so. Pool with bar is wonderful.

    Never in 23 years with RCI as a Platinum member has a resort been so misrepresented. Began with extortion of all inclusive fees. listed as optional at booking the resort insisted it is only mandatory for RCI members and would not allow my family of 4 on property until it was paid. The following 3 days and two sleepless night due to mechanical problems and unit moves. The best part of the vacation was vacating this place for the next 7 days and going to Tabacon, and to my amazement when I returned to check out I was not allowed off property until I paid a $15 fee to clean a bed sheet. Save your patience and precious vacation time by not staying here.

    This was our first trip to Costa Rica and found a very very good tour guide in Playa Coco and carefully researched on trip advisor prior to booking only to be told they were not allowed to pick us up at the front office. We were forced to be picked up outside the gate. Not real Pura Vida. Although I would stay here again I would never book an activity through them. I did have a local dive shop that was allowed to pick me up at the office. The only reason the tour guide was not allowed is because they were competition. By the way the tour company is Blue Marlin services (5 plus stars)
