“Great Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

We stayed at Hacienda La Pacifica for one night and it was great. We had everything we needed at an affordable cost. The location was perfect for visiting the National Park. The food was good, even though it was a little overpriced. I would recommend this stay to anyone!

Since it gets dark in Costa Rica about 6 pm, we were worried that, if our plane were delayed, we would be driving to La Fortuna after dark, so we decided to spend our first night at Hacienda La Pacifica. It was a good decision. Within 3 hours of landing, we were in the hotel's open air restaurant watching a family of howler monkeys up in the trees. Walking back to our bungalow, we saw an agouti and a couple of deer and more than a few birds. It turned out to be the most wildlife we saw during our whole trip. Our rooms were nice, but nothing special, but the sliding door opened onto a nice open place. The staff was welcoming and friendly. The food in the restaurant was good. The price was very good. It's more like a lodge than a restaurant. It looked like they do corporate retreats. All in all - a nice place. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: There is a swimming pool

I very much agree with all the previous comments. Wi-Fi is available in all the rooms and throughout the gardens which are home to many white-tail deers, guatuzas or agoutis (Dasyprocta punctata) who live free and can be watched during the day.

Naerby is the Corobicí river with light and very safe water rafting available.

And I recommend visiting the small, simple but very respectful of animal life zoo 100 meter South of La Pacífica. Pumas, smaller cats, many types of birds and monkeys, enough to satisfy your curiosity.

The highway from LIberia city and international airport will be of 4 lanes, sometime.

Room Tip: Ask for the studios with one large bed and full kitchen.

I have stayed here 4 times and the place hasn't changed much - but I continue to use it because of its location on the way up the west coast of Costa Rica to Palo Verde National Park. It's just an average place. The staff are OK but not overly friendly. A few speak some English. Be prepared for mosquitos here even during the dry season - the place for some reason feels a need to irrigate continually. The rooms are OK. Cleanliness OK. Food is OK.

Conveniently situated for Palo Verde, this is not luxurious accommodation but the best there is in the area. The staff is very friendly and efficient. Bungalows have a large bedroom and a living room and have air conditioning. The grounds are well kept and you can see a number of animals in the grounds themselves or in the nearby rescue centre. There is a restaurant with a decent range of choices. The food is OK but not fantastic.

This is a decent hotel, with nice clean large rooms. The bathroom was OK, with hot water and clean, although the tiles looked a little bit worn (which is part of the chosen style). Breakfast is OK, but small for Costa Rican standards. They have a large pool, and a nice garden. If you are flying in from Liberia, this would be a great start for a bird watching trip, as you can easily see some of the more common species. As happens with Hotels of this size, service is impersonal. Overall a recommendation, and a good price for what you get, although I prefer small family run hotels. We did not eat here but in Canas.

Room Tip: the smallest rooms are still rather large

Please note that this rating in no way denigrates this hotel. We enjoyed our stay. Our room was small, sparsely furnished, but very clean, with air conditioning (which we didn't use) and totally within our expectations. The rooms are spread in clusters over several acres, creating the sense of staying in jungle cabanas. Great pool. Good breakfast is included. Also often is the case in Costa Rica, the best part is the people. The staff here was outgoing, very helpful and quite enjoyable. We would stay again. However, by comparison with the several other hotels where we stayed in our two-week Costa Rica drive-about, this place simply is good but not great.

Room Tip: This is a good place for an overnight, but nothing much to see/do in the area. Canas is a non-touris...
