The pura vida lodge is a very beautiful and relaxed place that makes your holiday an incredible experience. The garden really is a paradise and the lodge is situated near the surf beach so you can easily check out the waves by bike and grab a board if the conditions are good. The people are very friendly and I've spent some awesome days in Mimizan. I hope I can go back there one day!

I've been there a few years ago and it was a really special place. The staff always available to help you in anything. The place is quite comfortable and well equipped to became a surfer beginner in a few days. I didn't attend to classes, but I went some days to take a look and the instructors were so nice and committed to teach. There also you can access to a bike at anytime and approach in the beach in five minutes or visit many places around to be in contact with the nature. Breakfast are the best. I highly recommend this place.

You don't have to travel to the other side of the world to land in paradise. The garden, the food, the swimming pool - everything is so nice. A place that feels like home. The staff, the crew and especially the owners are fantastic people. I would really recommend it to everyone!

I can highly recommend Pura Vida Lodge. I'd had an amazing week in September. The accommodation is well reached and away from the bustle (but still short distance walk to the 'center'), which makes it a quiet and relaxing place to stay. There is an amazing and spacious garden with comfortable seats, swimming pool, bar and campfire place where the whole lodge comes together at night to sit, drink and talk. Breakfast and dinner is made fresh every day by the lovely staff. You get your own wetsuit, beach cruiser (bicycle) with surf rack and can choose a board that fits your level. So you can always surf, also before and after lessons. There are longboards (skate) and also supping and yoga is possible. The whole concept makes it more than worth visiting again. I will be back this year!
