If you want to unplug, Rancho Pacifico is the perfect destination. It's a world within its own world. We stayed in a treehouse which afforded majestic views and the feeling you were one with nature. The staff makes a point of getting to know you and is at your service to create experiences beyond the resort. The dining was always something to look forward to as each meal afforded a different Costa Rican dish. No decisions to make, just pure enjoyement. Also had several spa services which were top notch. The owners are amazing and generous. When I was hurt during an excursion which required a trip to the hospital, they brought my passport to the hospital and drove me back to the hotel which was 30 minutes away. Their presence at the hospital was comforting and they took extra care in bringing our missed dinner to the room upon our return. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Costa Rica!

Hi Suzanne - Thank you so much for your kind review! With the tourism sector shut down by the COVID-19 pandemic, we sure miss entertaining such amazing guests like you. Although you gave us a scare with your trip to the hospital, we were all very relieved to learn that you were OK. Best wishes to you and we look forward to seeing you again soon back at Rancho Pacifico! - Mark

Hotel's Favorite
We’ve stayed in many luxury boutique hotels across three continents and Rancho Pacifico is by far and away the best when taken in whole. We stayed in the Whale’s Tail villa which offers serene, complete privacy set on a the apex of a hill in the unspoiled and gloriously wild rainforest. We woke up each morning to the most amazing and unique bird calls (and bird sightings) and howler monkey calls, who all contributed to nature’s sweet symphony of sight and sound. The Aracari pictured here was spotted from our bed one morning (picture taken from one of the three yawning, wrap around villa balconies). Further, the level of service, quality of staff, food service, and facility amenities are absolutely world class. We ate breakfast and dinner at RP each day over our seven day stay which are served on a large covered terrace that offers a commanding panoramic view over the forest, Uvita, and the Whale’s Tale feature. The food was exceptional, with dinner service on parallel with some Michelin rated restaurants. Rancho Pacific employees are all very genuine yet exceptionally attuned to delivering exceptional guest experiences. Please freely browse the available RP facilities imagery - I promise you that, in the flesh, everything will wildly exceed your expectations. Our stay at RP easily stands out as one of the best vacations my wife and I have ever (or will ever) enjoy....and we vacation heavily.

Our stay at RP was flawless. The food was inventive, inspired, fresh and absolutely delicious. The staff provided unparalleled service, always with a smile and a caring attitude . Our accommodations were luxurious and immaculate. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool/dining/bar area, and especially our interactions with our wonderful hosts! Our arranged excursions were fun and exactly as described. They were planned and executed perfectly. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in all of Costa Rica!

If you’re looking for a beautiful Costa Rican treehouse experience then Rancho Pacifico is perfect! The views from up high from the treehouse were spectacular; the treehouse itself was beautiful; the chef at RP was incredibly talented; and the owners Mark & Marlo couldn’t have been more welcoming. The activities that surround RP were noteworthy- kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boarding, hiking, waterfall like with ropes; horseback riding. Enjoy an amazing time at RP- and don’t forget to sign up for spa services and check out the wildlife- sloths included.

My wife and I recently, 2/22/20 - 2/29/20, returned from a trip to Costa Rica and a stay at the Rancho Pacifico. Although Costa Rica was beautiful and full of sights, the time spent at the resort was what made out trip most enjoyable. Grounds - Lush,beautiful and well maintained. Butterflies, birds and flowers. Numerous hiking trails on the property of different degrees of difficulty. Facilities - Laid out so that everything is convenient yet allows for privacy when desired. Clean and totally inviting. Loved the pool with World Class view, secluded yoga studio and one of the best Spa treatments we have ever had. Room - Beautifully appointed. Spectacular bathroom. Wonderful mattress and luxurious sheets. Private balcony with amazing views. Food - For us, quality of food can be a make or break for a trip. Rancho Pacifico is worth going to just for the food.Fresh, delicious and wonderfully presented.We absolutely loved every dish. Service is prompt and always with a smile. No rush, just relaxed. Do not miss the included breakfast with a new fresh juice everyday. Also loved the evening Happy Hour. A special drink prepared every night, conversation and with an unbelievable sunset. Perfect. Owners/staff - Hard to put into words just how inviting and welcome the people there make you feel. The owners are always ready to answer a question or offer a suggestion if asked. From the moment you arrive to the heart felt hugs when you leave the staff is extraordinary. Always welcomed by name, food and drink preferences remembered and all with a Five Star attitude. All in all Rancho Pacifico is hard to beat. An oasis in the middle of the rain forest. we loved every minute of our stay and will definitely be back.
