We just got back from our trip to Costa Rica and absolutely loved this resort. We picked this resort because it had all the criteria that everyone in our party required on a vacation, internet, jungle/beach, eco-friendly, and relaxation. This list was very hard and we thought that it would be nearly impossible to meet everyone's requirements. The resort was... More

In May 2013 my husband and I stayws at Rancho Pacifico for the second time in 11 months! This is the best find ever. A very unique property with the best and friendliest staff. The cuisine is wonderful - lots of fresh seafood and local fruit beautifully presented. Breakfasts include "typical" Costa Rican food. Loved the tamale wrapped in banana... More

My girlfriend and I loved our time here. The location was the perfect spot for a relaxing vacation. The food here is world class. They do a different tasting menu each night! If you are considering booking a vacation here, do it!

It was hard to come home and fall asleep withouth the music of the surrounding jungle and all of it's inhabitants! Never thought my husband would be able to sleep without AC or not watch a tv for 5 days but here anything is possible. Can't say enough about the amazing people who make you feel as though you are...

We recently spent a week here and didn't want to come home. After reading so many reviews, we didn't know what to expect when we arrived. I must admit, after the long ride up the mountain to the hotel, we were blown away. The view was AMAZING! Uvita is a small town that has a lot to offer. The excursions... More

As we planned our trip to Costa Rica, we wanted to find a place where we could be adventurous during the day and totally pampered at night. We found that perfect balance at Rancho Pacifico. Perched near the top of a mountain with stunning views of Playa Uvita’s Whale Tail, the resort is small and intimate. The open air, semi-screened... More

We recently spent a week at Rancho Pacifico outside Uvita in Puntarenas, on the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica, and had one of the best vacations ever. The owners, Garrison and Silvia Krause, have created an idyllic mountain-top retreat amidst the rainforest, overlooking the Marino Ballena National Park. The property is small and intimate, with only 10 suites and... More

We were so privileged to hear about Rancho Pacifico as we were planning our June 2012 honeymoon. It was the intimate setting we were looking for that offered R&R, a bit of adventure, and pampering. Rancho Pacifico completely exceeded our expectation and I truly feel we had THE BEST honeymoon because of the entire staff at Rancho Pacifico. We were... More

Rancho Pacifico is truly in a class of it's own. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left this whole experience exceeded our expectations. We have stayed at superb 5 star resorts before but I have to admit, Rancho Pacifico is without a doubt the best we have experienced to date. As they say..it's the little things that... More
