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

ranchopacifico, Manager at Rancho Pacifico, responded to this review

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

My wife and I just returned from 6 days at Rancho Pacifico and had a wonderful time. A 15-minute, 1-mile drive, 1500 feet straight up a dirt road in a 4 wheel drive vehicle in low gear is the price you pay for this idyllic setting on the edge of the jungle. The views of the Pacific are tremendous and... More

I arrived to a snowstorm in Seattle, WA today. This only helped re-emphasize how much I missed Costa Rica and the friends I left at Rancho Pacifico yesterday. My friend Kerry and I just spent an absolutely perfect week at RP – and we miss each and every bumpy ride on the road to and from this outstanding small luxury... More

My husband and I spent 5 days at Rancho Pacifico at the end of December and we LOVED it! The rooms were clean, lovely and remarkably bug-free.
