Rancho Pacifico was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. This beautiful hotel is a very special place to stay - a very peaceful and relaxing hotel with genuinely excellent service. Not much choice on the menu (which changed every day) but the food was always excellent. Would love to go back!

This resort and spa gives you the opportunity to experience the rainforest of Costa Rica with the highest quality of service and dining. Nestled up in the mountains with unbelieveable views of the Pacific, you can enjoy the wildlife and nature that surrounds you. The beach is a short trip down the mountain and the staff is available to take... More

My wife and I went to Rancho Pacifico on the first leg of our Honeymoon. I wish we went there on the last leg because all the other hotels were a disappointment after staying here. The views are beautiful, the food is great, and the service is one of a kind. If you are looking for a hotel that is... More

Rancho Pacifico is a spectacular place in a fairy tale setting in the Costa Rican rain forest. Everything you could possibly want for a peaceful and relaxing vacation is there...or the staff will make it available for you. We stayed 9 nights in the upper Tree house. Each morning we awakened to the sounds of the birds and monkeys. While... More

We came across an article on Rancho Pacifico 3, maybe 4 years ago in a glossy travel magazine called Destinations that we picked up somewhere on our travels in the Caribbean. The place, descriptions of the people and the beautiful pictures made it a place that we knew we wanted to visit, and this past February we made good on... More

Just returned from a fantastic trip to Costa Rica, due in large part to our stay at Rancho Pacifico. The villa was fantastic surrounded by great views everywhere you looked and the magical sounds of the rainforest. The ambience was so relaxing, and everyone, absolutely everyone at RP was delightful, caring, and seemed to go out of their way to... More

I travelled with 3 girlfriends in March to Rancho Pacifico and was blown away. The attention to detail, from remembering our names on the first evening, to the flowers in our villa every day, made all of us feel special. There is nothing like having a cup of Costa Rican coffee while daydreaming or ready with an amazing ocean view... More

I found Rancho Pacifico after doing lots of research on Trip Advisor. We had very high expectations after reading all of the great reviews and we were not disappoitned in the least. Our honeymoon in a Treehaus was more than we could have imagined. Everything you read is true. We had amazing food and drinks, a fun, thoughtful staff, and... More

We visited Rancho Pacifico for our honeymoon. We arrived late, and woke up to the sounds of nature overlooking the most amazing forest/jungle we had ever seen. The food was incredible and definitely exceeded our expectations. Everything was so fresh and tasty. The staff remembered your name and interests immediately. The provided great recommendations for activities. This is a place... More

Can you beat a soothing massage, an elegant open air dinner and falling asleep to the sounds of crickets and frogs and an occasional tropical bird? Rancho Pacifico is exactly what we hoped for but never knew existed. The rain forest setting with a view of the Pacific Ocean took our breath away. Every member of the staff was exceptional... More
