**My Standard Disclaimer: I am not a snob who demands everything be five-star all of the time. I am not a cheapskate who refuses to pay for anything decent and then complains about the service and facilities. I am an ordinary person who only asks that my room is clean and the service and amenities offered by the hotel are...

My boyfriend and I spent a week in Costa Rica at the Rancho Pacifico. I never would have believed I could be ok with not being on the beach, until now. The small intimate resort is about 2,000 feet in a rain forest with the most breathtaking view you could ever hope to see. Right from our room we hiked...

Stayed at RP a few months ago and haven't stopped talking about the incredible time we had. We had heard great things, but it isn't until you get there that you realize that the unmatched setting makes everything ahead of you just perfect. From the design to the service, from the views to the spa, the temperatures, the room, the...

In the first few minutes, you will know you are "home." I had my doubts when I saw the other online reviews, but there is a standard here that is rarely met in a commercial venture. Each person on staff came, on first meeting to introduce him or herself, to smile, shake hands and learn my name. From the executive...

My wife and I are just finishing a full week at Rancho Pacifico and would love to stay for another few weeks.

My husband and I spent 11 fabulous nights at Rancho Pacifico on our honeymoon...and it was hands down one of the most amazing places we have ever visited!

Stayed here a while back...very pretty. Staff amazing. Food great...clean...great view...but.. If you stay in the deluxe room..you can hear your neighbour breathing...and without the forth wall even in the dry season the bedding is damp. I've travelled to C.R for 15 years...would not recommend for more than 2nights. There are so many amazing places to stay, that do not...

For the last 7 years, we have from time to time received undocumented reviews, most of which have been removed when disputed. They have a similar theme and content - Based on a past "visit" (this one says it is from a year ago), short, vague, oriented toward dissuasion, and containing a personal "attack". We have tangible reason to believe...

Let me first say this resort is absolutely amazing. This was our first time visiting and had a wonderful time. The accommodations, staff and food were excellent, and the overall feeling of the resort was extremely relaxing. And the views are breathtaking! I couldn’t believe we could stay at a place like this. I would highly recommend anyone looking for...

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit and recommend RP to others. The advice to future guests is appreciated - communications help others make informed decisions. To be 100% accurate however, there are a few "facts" here that need some clarification. 1. By law, every restaurant expenditure in every establishment in Costa Rica will carry a 23%...

Let me start by saying that this is a lovely place and by and large most of the positive comments by the other guests I would wholeheartedly endorse. This was our second visit.

Many thanks for returning to RP and for your endorsements. We are disappointed that your 2nd visit in some way was less perfect than the first (?). In the quest to point out "imperfections" your points are well taken and feedback appreciated. A few of those points give us the opportunity to help future guests make their best decision: Food:...
