“Beautiful Coastal Views and Landscape”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Thank you to the staff at Hacienda Pinilla and especially the La Posada staff. Your friendly service made our trip special. The lovely property offered gorgeous beach and inland views. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a lovely outdoor space which allowed me to enjoy the mornings with the birds, iguanas, and monkeys. The only challenge was regulating the shower temperature. We played tennis most early mornings. Enjoying the beach and pool in the late morning and early afternoon. We walked to Lola's one day to enjoy a nice lunch on the beach while watching the surfers manage the waves. This fun space and menu was good for a vegetarian and carnivore alike.

The best part of this trip was the beach experience! This place offers truly energetic surf and gorgeous views!

Thank you Costa Rica!

Room Tip: Choose a room with an outdoor space to enjoy the wildlife!

Hotel is in a good location. Bed is good and firm. Bathroom poorly constructed. From here you can go to different type of beaches that is suited to your taste and liking.

Lots of animals to see if you walk around the huge propetry. You can hear the howler monkeys all over.

They have shuttle service and will even take you to the nearby Marriot for dinner at the Marriot restaurant.

Local restaurant is reasonable but gets overwhelmed when there is increased number of tourists.

Room Tip: Ask for the upgrade so that the door to the balcony will open and you can enjoy the outdoors sitting...

This is the second time that I stay in this hotel and every time is better. We were at a suite (casita) and it is great, with a large fully equipped kitchen, dinner table and living room, also with a private terrace. The bedroom is great and so the bed.

It was one of the best experiences in our lives. My new wife and I stayed for an unforgettable weekend. We will always remember the pristine beaches, great service at the restaurant, and good golf. We also enjoyed the horseback riding at the beach.
And it was a treat been able to be connected all the time to work through high speed internet service.
We definitively will go back again.
