we stayed in a suite villa...gorgeous!, better than the photos on the website...which are Gorgeous! They have thought of everything here to make the experience memorable. Wonderful cuisine, massage therapists and infinity pool that meets the horizon in an unparalleled way. This place is pricey for Costa Rica, but you will notice in the detail, that the cost is worth...

You were able to summarize the Kura experience in few words: Gorgeous Suites, Wonderful Cuisine, Great Spa Treatments and the most Incredible Pool Experience.

Beautiful boutique hotel, with great friendly staff what will go out of their way to make your stay better. The rooms are beautifully decorated with an amazing view, the restaurant has great food and variety, and you have access to a private beach about 20 minutes from the hotel. Service at its best.

If you'd like to experience the best chill-out in the most beautiful location - Pacific Ocean on one side, Cosa Rican rainforest the other - this is it. Everything about the Kura Villas has been thought through and you will not be disappointed. Just ensure you stay for long enough!

Getting there is half the fun - we were in a bottom-of-the-line rental 4x4 and made it to the top with screaming gears and worries about braking on the way down, but it doesn't have to be that way, and it was easier than we thought getting down. Once there, we forgot all about that anyway. Welcomed by Adam, fresh...

Driving up a dusty, curving trail cannot possibly prepare one for what could only be described as an oasis of elegance, incredibly competent, friendly service and truly luxurious accommodations. With only 6 villas on the property, a stunning infinity pool, the restaurant and bar serving gourmet food and creative drinks -- all with stunning ocean view, are so peaceful that...

Traveling has been pretty high in my priorities for a few years now so when I came across a flight deal for Costa Rica a couple of months out, I decided to purchase tickets spur of the moment. It was the best decision I have ever made. I went with my boyfriend and we literally had the best time of...

Welcoming from the time Lalo picked us up at Quepos airstrip, and jaw-dropping from the moment we walked up the stairs, Kura might well be our favourite hotel ever. Absolutely beautiful design, spectacular views, a pool you feel compelled to occupy, epic sunsets, rooms which are almost criminally underused since you never want to leave the main area, and unfailing...

Recently returned from honeymooning at Kura which we had spent around a year planning and dreaming of all the amazing photos/reviews on tripadvisor. In some ways I am reluctant to write this review telling the world how wonderful Kura is incase it results in being fully booked when we want to go again. Although I'd love to keep it secret,...

Only 6 rooms. Each room made of glass. Complete privacy. With a view that goes on forever. Large balcony with a hammock and two rather uncomfortable chairs. A fabulous pool that overlooks the view. Lie in bed and open the doors. The sound of the crickets and monkeys are all you can hear. The Toucans visit in the evening. Keep...
