My husband and I spent 11 fabulous nights at Rancho Pacifico on our honeymoon...and it was hands down one of the most amazing places we have ever visited! From the moment we arrived (after a long travel day), the staff was so attentive and welcoming...we felt like we were being greeted by longtime friends and family. Because that is what... More

Stayed here a while back...very pretty. Staff amazing. Food great...clean...great view...but.. If you stay in the deluxe room..you can hear your neighbour breathing...and without the forth wall even in the dry season the bedding is damp. I've travelled to C.R for 15 years...would not recommend for more than 2nights. There are so many amazing places to stay, that do not... More

For the last 7 years, we have from time to time received undocumented reviews, most of which have been removed when disputed. They have a similar theme and content - Based on a past "visit" (this one says it is from a year ago), short, vague, oriented toward dissuasion, and containing a personal "attack". We have tangible reason to believe... More

Let me first say this resort is absolutely amazing. This was our first time visiting and had a wonderful time. The accommodations, staff and food were excellent, and the overall feeling of the resort was extremely relaxing. And the views are breathtaking! I couldn’t believe we could stay at a place like this. I would highly recommend anyone looking for... More

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit and recommend RP to others. The advice to future guests is appreciated - communications help others make informed decisions. To be 100% accurate however, there are a few "facts" here that need some clarification. 1. By law, every restaurant expenditure in every establishment in Costa Rica will carry a 23%... More

Let me start by saying that this is a lovely place and by and large most of the positive comments by the other guests I would wholeheartedly endorse. This was our second visit. On the other hand, while most of the reviews would have you to believe the place is perfect, I always go to trip advisor when researching a... More

Many thanks for returning to RP and for your endorsements. We are disappointed that your 2nd visit in some way was less perfect than the first (?). In the quest to point out "imperfections" your points are well taken and feedback appreciated. A few of those points give us the opportunity to help future guests make their best decision: Food:...

We had a simply marvelous time at Rancho Pacifico and I am sure that we will be back. My mother absolutely thrived while she was there, relaxed, catered to and enjoyed the beautiful setting with the fantastic wildlife and birds. It made for a very memorable Christmas holiday for us and an experience that we would like to repeat. The... More

Rancho Pacifico is a perfect blend of serenity and adventure. It's "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" to get up the include, but once there, you are surrounded by a gorgeous view, a lovely setting of villas, and spa, hot tubs and dining area tucked away in the rainforest. RP is a small boutique resort with an emphasis on the environment, good... More

Rancho Pacifico is a small resort on top of a mountain in the cloud forest of Uvita Costa Rica. The small number of villas makes for a very intimate and private stay. There is open air dining at the main check in where fresh made chef selections will delight you at every meal. Exotic fresh squeezed juices for breakfast and... More

Wow...just WOW. During our search for the best resort in Costa Rica we stumbled upon Rancho Pacifico and I am so thankful that we did! I want to say RP needs more recognition, but I would be so very heart broken if the traffic they would receive caused me to be put on a waiting list. Truly a best kept... More

This is a small yet intimate resort. The atmosphere is tranquil and serene with the most amazing views!! The staff provided excellent service and the food was amazing. There are not enough positive words in the English dictionary to describe how fabulous this best-kept secret is.
