5/5 Excellent

This was our favourite place to stay in CR. The owner was very helpful beforehand with instructions on how to get to Drake Bay. He was also helpful in booking trips and recommendations on restaurants, as well as driving down to the beach and collecting us at the end of the activities and taking us back up the hill. The rooms were super clean and super comfortable. We loved the dining area, where you could watch the birds eat off the birdfeeder, or relax in the hammock during the afternoon rains. The place is uphill, on the way out of town - but this meant that it was lovely and quiet and just what we wanted from our stay.

Drake Bay gem

Caninas Pura Vida was a great choice. The property is very well maintained and immaculately clean. Breakfasts were excellent. Norlyn was a great host. He arranged all of our tours and picked us up at the beach when we arrived. Saw lots of birds and a monkey from the hammock in the common area. The hotel is a short hike up the hill from the beach. The beds were a bit firm for our taste but the wonderful AC made up for it. One improvement would be to allow some type of electronic payment. I’d be willing to pay a bit extra to avoid carrying lots of cash. We enjoyed our stay in Drake Bay and I can recommend Cabinas Pura Vida without hesitation.

Drake Bay is an under-developed area of Costa Rica -- think about it, you'll need to take a boat to reach there -- but the owner Norlyn made strong effort to ensure that our stay was as smooth as possible. His communication was always fast. He arranged our commutes to and from Drake Bay with details. He scheduled our tours and gave me written details of checklists. The restaurant he recommended, Mar y Bosque, was excellent. The room was clean with relatively new air conditioner, which works great. It's a little tricky to get hot water, but don't hesitate to ask.
