From the porcini tagliatelle you made us, to the fresh doughnuts you bought us when we continued our journey. (He literally jumped in his land rover and popped up to the bakery to get us something...

This is more of a public thank you, than a review. Christian and Rossella, thank you for your hospitality. You both were warm and welcoming right from the start and we left with what felt like life-long friends. Your apartments were clean and modern with real wood and hand made charm. The entire trip was perfecto and we have not... More

3 friends and I stayed at the Principe Apartments for a night on our recent trip to Costa Rica. It is a wonderful place - clean and beautiful - the pool was wonderful too. Christian (the owner) was warm and social and very helpful. Our only regret was that we could only stay the 1 night. I highly recommend a... More

Can't say enough about how wonderful this place is. Christian was such a great host and made us feel like family during our stay. The rooms are priced perfectly, completely reasonable considering your getting A/C and cable TV and a kitchenette. Not only that, but you are given access to anything you need whether it be in a vacant room... More

Rossella and Christian, both from Italy, own Principe del Pacifico. They are warm and genuine. My friends and I stayed in the "Green" room. I felt right at home there. We were greeted by Mia, the lab, and by Silvio, the parrot! I recommend staying here if you want a home away from home.

Quite literally, Cristiano and his hotel saved our honeymoon!!! We can´t give much higher praise than that. We were staying for 3 days in Santa Teresa. Our first night was spent in a dreadful hotel and we were desperate to leave. Thankfully Cristiano had a vacancy. Cristiano and his wife could not have made us feel more welcome. The whole... More

This hotel is in a good location close to one of the funnest beaches I've been to in Costa Rica. The rooms are very cool, not your average type of hotel rooms which I like. We stayed in the Green Suite which was an upgrade and I'm glad we did, it was great to have a huge deck overlooking the... More

My wife and I found this hotel through Trip Advisor and the many and various reviews about it posted there. Although I have given Principe del Pacifico an overall of 4 dots, I think it is truly more of a 3 1/2 dots because it is definitely better than average, but it's not great, not exceptional. It is not a... More
