We booked this "resort" for 2 nights, almost $1400, so obviously we expected it to be nice. Private pool, great view, comfy room ? Yes it had a great view but that was where it stopped. The drive up to the resort was very dangerous and if it rains, you won't be able to go up or down from the... More

I can't begin to say what an incredible experience this resort was! The view is unreal and astounding and the room could not have been any better! If you love nature, this is the perfect place . But most of all, the unbelievably amazing staff that I met and got to know personally. I travel extensively in Australia and the... More

Rancho Pacifico is described as the un-hotel. I can't think of a better description. It is more like your home away from home. Everything is so comfortable and the staff could not be more friendly or welcoming. They make your stay a truly unique experience. I am so thankful and appreciative for their kind service and hard work to make... More

Went down to Costa Rica for the first time with my girlfriend and before we left she had the idea to rent a car and stop at different places before we arrived at RP. We flew first into the country stayed 3 nights elsewhere before we drove to Uvita. We were not disappointed by our 6 hour drive from the... More

We spent four nights at Racho Pacifico for our 20th anniversary. The property is beautiful and the view spectacular, in large part because it is high up on the mountain overlooking the Pacific (a 4x4 is required to get there). The Treehaus Hideaway Villa provided a secluded retreat with a breathtaking view of the coast from everywhere in the room... More

This boutique hotel is located on the top of the mountain (10-15 minutes drive uphill from the village). You really need a 4X4, not because the road is bad, in fact it is a very nice and well maintain dirt road but it is is very steep to get to the hotel and it's steep for 2-3 km. I would... More

Unforgettable and magical! My husband, myself and another couple just returned from a wonderful 6 night stay at Rancho Pacifico. We stayed in the 3 bedroom villa on the property. It was beautiful! The views are simply magnificent as you can see the Whale's Tail perfectly from all terraces and are surrounded by pristine rainforest. The temperatures were always cool... More

Unlike any vacation I'd been on. A beautiful relaxing resort in the mountains over looking the beach. Area is very un-commercialized so you get the most authentic Costa Rican experience possible. Always start the day off the day with an amazing breakfast and each night the dinner is a different theme (Asian, Italian, Costa Rican ect.). All meals are made... More

The location is amazing, private unspoilt views of rainforest all the way down to the coast. The tree houses are secluded and private and open to the natural environment, comfortably equipped. The staff are warm, friendly and courteous and have done everything possible to make our honeymoon unforgettable. The food has been superb each breakfast, lunch and dinner. A truly... More
