I am writing this review watching the sun set over the Pacific, hearing two toucans calling each other from adjacent trees, howler monkeys howling in the distance and a praying mantis is sitting motionless on top of a leaf next to the decking. Yes we are in the jungle with magnificent views over the tree clad mountains but my wife... More

We left Rancho Pacifico this morning after 10 wonderful days. We loved our Tree House suite which gave us both complete privacy and superb views. This is an eco lodge in the mountain overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We were woken by the sounds of birds and the howling of monkeys every morning. The variety of birds that we saw and... More

The Villa and Tree House are beautiful with great indoor... More

Let me start with the positive points of Rancho Pacifico: . location: nestled in the Uvita hills, you'll find Rancho Pacifico. Our room was basically in the middle of nature. Waking up at 6am and sitting on your terrace you could see and hear the animals waking up. Quite magical . view. From high up on the hill you have... More

This place is above our normal price point, but we were pleased both by the quality of the accommodations and the excellent help in getting around the local area. The food was an excellent value compared to other hotels we stayed in, particularly given the isolation of the hotel and the small number of guests. The portions are sensible and... More

If you are looking for a large all inclusive resort that is really easy to get to and the stereotypical chain resort experience ... this place is not for you. Rancho Pacifico is perfect for the adventurous traveller looking for superb customer service, awesome fit and finish, access to the region's best activities, and a first rate stay. The small...

There are a ton of wonderful reviews for Rancho Pacifico, and all of them are true. My wife and I typically take a trip with no kids in November before the holidays descend. In the past we have gone to Aspen, New York and Chicago. We do some Christmas shopping (we ship everything home) and eat our feelings at the... More

Firstly, me and wifer were on our honeymoon and this was the last of 3 Hotels we stayed at in various locations, including one of the best (on this site) in the La Fortuna region, so the bar was set very high. Not only did Rancho clear that bar, they created a new event! Our 15min ride up the mountain... More

Rancho Pacifico is heaven on earth. The epitome of Paradise! My husband and stayed in three locations across Costa Rica for our honeymoon, it is safe to say we saved the best until last! RP is simply stunning. The views across the pacific, the whale’s tail, the rainforest! WOW! The hotel itself is the most beautiful I have ever seen.... More
