Our Pacifico condo (2 BR/2 bath) was plenty roomy and comfortable. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. We loved the pools, especially the the lap pool and surrounding area because it had a lot of shady spots if you were looking for shade. It was an easy walk into town, and the AutoMercado grocery store, bank, Subway and pharmacy were just outside the gates, making shopping super-convenient. The Pacifico Beach Club Restaurant had the best food in town, great ambience and good A/C. (I don't usually like A/C but it was so hot in Guanacaste that time of year it was nice to be cool when we ate dinner there.) We were glad our condo was in the "Lifestyle" area of condos - less noisy than other pool area, and more convenient than the "Club" area. All the grounds keepers, pool guys, security, and restaurant/bar staff were friendly. As an amateur bird watcher, I loved all the tropical birds I could see on the property, as well as a few howler monkey sightings and a coatamundi family. If I were going back to Playa del Coco, I would definitely stay at Pacifico again.
Into our second week here. Now no a/c. Been out about 24 hrs. Supposed to be fixed today. Still no cushions or working dining room lite. Oh my.
The resort is lovely and the upkeep on the grounds superb, this condo 1209 needs a lot of work and update.. Could not use the pots and pans, the dishes cracked and chipped, the wine glasses are broken, no fan on the deck, no cushions for the patio chairs, the patio sliding glass door is hard to open and close, the light and fan above dinning room table doesn't work. I'll come back to Costa Rica but not this condo.
We are into our first week of a one month rental. No cushions on patio chairs. You cannot use these chairs without cushions. An attempt was made to provide cushion but they were very very small and did not suit these large chairs. No iron. Not waterfront. Door to patio is worn out and very difficult to open and close. Light and ceiling fan in the dining area does not work. Door to the utility closet fell off. Dishes mostly chipped and cracked. Stemware broken or cracked. Cookware very inadequate. Had to have several light bulbs replaced. Furniture is typical rental furniture and uncomfortable. Being unable to sit outside and enjoy the weather due to no cushions is not what we expected. This unit is in dire need of upgrading. Does not look like the pictures shown. Very disappointed.
Really comfortable appartment, open floor plan, ideal for young children, lots of space to play. The gardens and nature just a step from your door.
