We were looking for some time for a perfect wedding destination that could accommodate ~30 people, have an option for beach wedding and also includes catering for all the days we will be there. Pura Vida Casas definitely exceeded our expectations. There were small hiccups along the way (some technical issues with villas), but fixing problems was fast on organized. And extra credit to Chloe, Pura Vida Casas manager. She was a great help and organized things in a way where you did not even notice. If you are clear on your expectations you can be sure she will be spot on with her actions.Sent on 06/29/2018

My Son had his wedding at the beach and rented the houses, the reception for 40 people was on the rooftop of the house. I was helping them. After they chose, the vendors( tables, food etc) Chloe took care of everything. She made sure the beach was roped off, she met people with the chairs, set everything up, had the loud speaker set up, everything was beautiful, she even made sure to go bit beyond, when the bride maids forgot to hold the brides bouquet, Chloe was there to had it off.. They took care of cleaning up the beach, while we were away they took care of the reception area, all the table were setup, DJ was ready to go. She took care of getting caterer set up (Jimmy T's Provision Herradura) food was the BEST! Made sure the cake was brought out, and set up as we wanted it. I can't say enough, the houses were amazing, He rented 3 of them and had the out of town guests stay there. We did all the planning ourselves from tables to the food, decorations etc..but Chloe has contacts if you need help in that. Not far from the houses is a Hair salon (studio 34) which is very convenient for the wedding party. I would recommend Them for your wedding . I'm not sure how much my son spent with them, he rented 3 houses for 3 days, the 2 house for the balance of the week..Sent on 07/03/2018
