We stayed at Rancho Pacifico for the last three nights as part of an 8 night vacation. If we had known earlier, we would have stayed the entire 8 nights there. We knew we were in for something special while on the drive up to the resort. We had one of the tree houses. It was like something out of... More

Words cannot express what an amazing trip this was. Rancho Pacifico thinks of everything and then try’s to go above and beyond! All of your recommended tours were fabulous, the food outstanding (Alex your great and I'm still waiting for a recipe you promised me!), our driver Christian couldn't do enough for us and Marvin and Adrianne took great care...

was something that you would see on T.V., it exceeded all our expectations and the staff and their hospitality are undoubtedly amongst the best in the world. We went to Rancho Pacifico exactly one year before our wedding and thought it was amazing, so we took back our closest friends and family to witness first hand the amazing views, the... More

We just returned from our 2 nd week-long stay at Rancho Pacifico. Our first trip last year was fabulous, perfect and wonderful. I am actually surprised that this trip was even better – but it was. There were a number of factors that won us over last year – and a few more have been added. First off we fell... More

We have just finished a week at RP for our daughter's wedding with 20 guests. I would rate the service of this hotel at the top of all hotels I have stayed at. Alex, Adrianna and the rest of the staff constantly went above and beyond in their service, to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Do not think... More

I stayed here for a week with my boyfriend -- this was our first time to Costa Rica. Overall, this is a very unique place -- it's a intimate, tranquil B&B in the hillside of Uvita. We got the spa package via Luxurylink.com. Our room was very unique - it faced the rain forest, and had no glass windowpanes, so... More

Please accept our apologies for any hot water inconveniences. We have recently relocated our laundry room so as not to strain our standard suites. All other accommodations are spread out throughout the property and have their own hot water. As evidenced by a couple of recent reviews, this is not the only time that transportation costs have become an issue.... More

Whilte the hotel is in a beautiful location, there were many impracticalities with being high up on the mountain. I would warn anyone staying here to be aware that unless you rent a car, you are dependent on the hotel to shuttle you back and forth to the beach and activities. The hotel charges for its shuttle service and whichs... More

We are sorry that this guest encountered issues with transportation that effected their enjoyment. Their comment about "assuming no responsibility" requires an explanation. We loosely recommend certain agencies over others because of their ability to service problems from their local offices. This can come in very handy - and is generally better than waiting for an agency to service your... More

While I will review the hotel later, the most important thing to consider before making a trip to Rancho Pacifico is the road to get to it. It's a big part of the experience, and something that you should be prepared for. We did not do our homework and had a rough start to our trip to Rancho Pacifico. A... More

Lovely property away from the touristy towns further up the Pacific coast. The room we had - 2 bedroom villa - was spacious, beautiful, and had every amenity you need including a full kitchen, 2 very private bedrooms, and a large wrap-around balcony. The view from every room is through the rainforst to the ocean beyond. There are many amenities... More

First the Pluses for us: The room was lovely and the bathroom with outdoor bath was great. We had a relaxing spa service and loved the great 'soundtrack' of the monkeys and birds during the service. The view from the pool and hanging out by the pool was a lot of fun. The Minuses for us: We realized on this... More

As the "minuses" related to transportation were addressed previously in another response we won't be redundant. However, we would like to reiterate that guests have transportation options - including rental cars if they wish to explore extensively such as this couple. These options are carefully explained on our website including a cost analysis comparing the different options. As for "Pizza... More
