We stayed at RP for 3 days for our honeymoon and also my wife's birthday. This truly is a slice of Heaven on earth, staffed by Angels! We were immediately in awe of the surrounding beauty and tranquility. Upon our arrival we were met by the most incredible staff who treated us just like family! Every room is beautiful, with...

We stayed at Rancho Pacifico for 3 nights, in the more basic room. It is based up a ~4k steep track from uvita with stunning views over the coast and 'whale tail' beach. A 4x4 is a must for the track, we had a decent Mitsubishi truck which was 2 wheel drive and had to be rescued one rainy night!... More

I just went to Costa Rica and out of all the hotels I went to, this was by far the best. The food was amazing and prepared by professional chefs, the view is priceless looking out to the whales tail, and all the people go out of there way to make your vacation the best one you will ever have.

My husband and I returned last week from a 5 night stay at RP. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty. The staff are everywhere and are there for the sole purpose of making sure the guests are happy. We've travelled alot and never had such a personal experience. The food and service were so great that... More

I was there with my husband as part of our short honeymoon at the end of June 2015. This place was a big surprise for us: in the mountain with a beautiful view of the Whale tail and surrounded by beautiful nature. The service is outstanding and highly personalised. Staff is super friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is beautiful... More

Everything was simply wonderful!! The service was outstanding, the food was very very good and the venue is absolutely heavenly. The size is small and therefore you get an up close and personal experience with the staff and other guests. We had a great week, weather was perfect, our room was so clean and although we had an "open to... More

We had the most wonderful time at Rancho Pacifico, truly relaxing, comfortable and pampered. All the staff are friendly, attentive to detail and seemed to meet our every need even before we thought of it. Touches like water being brought to us poolside, staff remembering how we take our coffee, flowers on the freshly made beds, and staff pointing out... More

Privacy, beauty, and perfection. This is the best way to describe RP. The staff is eager to help in any way imaginable and communication is easy, as they all speak English very well. The resort is paradise for anyone looking for a private place to relax in nature. It is truly deep in the mountains of the rainforest. At the... More

This uber exclusive, boutique Eco-resort and spa far exceeded our expectations in every way. Proprietors Garrison and Silvia Krause have created the rock star of romantic getaways. Nestled in the rainforest at the top of a mountain above Playa Ballena (The Whale's Tail), RP delivers in every way. The drive up the mountain is challenging and you will need four... More
