My husband and I were fortunate enough to visit Rancho for our Honeymoon. The reviews don’t do it justice. The staff was absolutely stellar and their attention to detail was phenomenal. The food was…. So utterly delicious that I’m still struggling with regular day-to-day food a week later ( it’s not nearly as satisfying lol). We stayed in Treehouse Puma and were stunned by the views and privacy as well as the accommodations. Each activity recommended to us was thoroughly vetted by the staff and each was a fabulous experience. I truly can’t say enough good words. The only thing… make SURE you have a 4x4 to get there:)

Hotel's Favorite
This was our third stay at Rancho Pacifico but it had been 10 years since my wife and I had visited. The two previous stays were outstanding so expectations were super high. We knew ownership had changed and the resort had gone through a few changes so we were a bit concerned our experience wouldn't be as memorable as our previous stays. Let's just say our 4 days at RP this time around far exceeded our expectations. We arrived early evening and were quickly met by friendly and familiar staff and escorted to our room. We stayed in the Pinuelas suite and everything about it was perfect. The bed was extremely comfortable, the shower and tub were amazing, and we loved the wet bar tucked in the closet that included a small fridge. The small touches were really nice as well - beautiful flower arrangement, covered balcony, air-conditioning, umbrellas right outside the room. The best part about the room though was the view and privacy, yet it's only a few steps away from the pool and restaurant. We spent a lot of our time at RP lounging in the hot tub and pool while enjoying the wonderful fresh food and drinks at the restaurant. Those areas are right next to each other and have been remodeled since our last visit. They did an incredible job retaining the natural beauty and views while creating a very modern and open space that's extremely comfortable. What makes RP so magical for us are the staff members. They're truly like family. Steven, Maria, Vianney, Alex, Andrey, and everyone else we encountered are the absolute best. They're genuinely helpful and really took our experience to the next level. A few things to keep in mind. We always rent a 4x4 SUV and I absolutely love the drive up the mountain to Rancho Pacifico but it's probably not for everyone. It's about a 10-15 minute drive straight up from the town of Uvita. The dirt road is bumpy, steep, and winding. Also, the town of Uvita is great. Lots of good restaurants and amazing people. There are a few hikes around the property. The waterfall hike is a short, steep trail but totally worth it. We spent a good hour just hanging out in the river and playing in the waterfall. Lastly, keep in mind RP is in the jungle so you're going to experience critters, humidity, and other elements. It's all part of the Costa Rican experience.

My husband found Rancho Pacifico for our honeymoon. It was such an incredible vacation that we came back a second time for our 10 year anniversary. It was even better than we remembered. They made a lot of gorgeous upgrades. I would highly recommend a climate controlled room. If you are looking for spectacular views, phenomenal service, amazing food and a romantic getaway, this hands-down is the place to stay. The website doesn’t do it Justice. ❤️

Rancho Pacifico is simply an amazing place to stay. The hotel is beautifully nestled into the mountains with fantastic views of the ocean. All of the accommodations are very well thought out and perfectly executed. The outdoor restaurant is the perfect place to begin and end your day. The food and drinks were first class and the service is off the charts. Hands down one of the best vacation experiences I've ever had. I will definitely be back.

Well...Let's start by saying that I already typed this out once and tripadvisor lost the review and it never posted. SOOOOO, I doubt this second review will be as good. This trip was absolutely AMAZING! Rancho Pacifico was the perfect choice as our destination in Costa Rica. My wife and I needed some time to relax and have a romantic vacation, and this could not have been a better place for it. We stayed in a tree house and waking up to the howler monkeys was completely surreal. It was just a dream vacation. The excursions that you book through Rancho are amazing. Small group sizes, knowledgeable tour guides, and just fun trips. I would highly recommend Surf Lessons if you're new to that, Waterfall rappelling, the mangrove tour (so many animals to see), and snorkeling at Cano Island. These were our favorites. The staff was so great and helpful planning and booking our events (some ahead of time and some in the heat of the moment while we were there). The staff were so friendly and fun to be around. They made our time even more enjoyable that I would have ever imagined. I would (and hope to) travel here again and make Rancho our home away from home.
