What do they say about us on TripAdvisor
"Pura Vida! A must!"
I was referred there by friends and honestly I am thankful for the advice. We had the Bora Bora house for a group of 8 people, with our own private pool, kitchen, terrace, steps away from the beach and literally in the middle of the jungle! It was ecstasy living. The host Arno is an amazing host and made the trip that much better. Surrounded by animals of all sorts and eating breakfast with a parrot every morning was an amazing experience! I recommend this place to all those who are fed up of the all inclusive hotel's boredom to live a relaxing and serene experience with the wonders of the wild life! I am definitely going back! PURA VIDA!!!
"The real Pura Vida"
If you are looking for a real Costa Rica experience, look no further! At La Tropicale you are serenaded by nature, from parrots to roosters, the gorgeous and authentic Playa Carrillo to the friendliest Ticos. Arno and his lively gang (Luz, Juan, parrots, dogs, cat...) will accommodate you with open arms and the true spirit of Pura Vida! Hungry? Arno is a great cook and will gladly grill up some fresh seafood right off the boat for you! A gorgeous vacation spot, whether you chose the sea, the pool or the spa, you will be surrounded by lush nature at its finest.
"Wonderful host, wonderful stay"
We are an Australian couple who intended to stay with Arno for one night but ended up staying almost 3 weeks. Arno is a charming, wonderful host who went out of his way to make our stay in Playa Carrillo the best it could be. He has created a wonderful garden from nothing, and even the animals love it - at night we saw armadillos, and during the day were lucky enough to see a tree porcupine and a nosey raccoon from the zoo across the road. We spent many days in the pool, admiring the garden and the two loveable pet birds Arno has. The rooms are clean and comfortable and have functional kitchens. They are cleaned daily by the very sweet housekeeper, Luz. Playa Carrillo is a short walk away and is a beautiful, long stretch of beach which is great to swim at. If you are looking to get away from the crowds at Samara, this is the perfect place, at a reasonable price. Arno, what a wonderful time we had with you and we hope one day you will visit Australia so we can return the favor!
