“Just outside town, but still close to the action”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Still new in January 2013, the apartments were clean, and well-furnished. A flat-screen in the living room and bedroom got more use than I'd like to admit, we were on the wi-fi almost constantly while we were in the room, and the kitchen appliances suited our needs well for the week. One exception: there was no wine-key or corkscrew. This bit of nitpicking serves a purpose, though: When we asked Natalia at the front desk if she had one, she quickly came to our aid. Though it was late in the evening, she was able to get one in just a couple minutes. Crisis averted. Natalia was incredibly helpful during our entire stay. The other staff I dealt with were equally as helpful, especially Lineth, with whom I first began discussing our stay through the hotel's Facebook account.

The location outside Quepos was an unexpected boon, since the time we spent downtown made it quite apparent Quepos was more bustling and a bit "grittier" than we would have enjoyed while trying to relax. Though we only rented a car for two days, getting around was still really easy. There's a bus stop practically adjacent to the hotel, and cabs arrive quickly once a call is placed.

In all, it was a pleasant stay. Iguanas lounged in the trees behind our room, and hummingbirds darted from bush to bush. Plus, the place is gated and security is on the clock 24 hours, so we felt safe and secure the entire time.

I think my title just about sums it up! We did two weeks here and can't wait to do it all over the again. We stayed in the villas and they are split-level and fantastic. Brand new, split level and classy. The pool is superb and there is a bbq. It is great to be able to cook your own breakfast or buy some fresh fish and do it yourself so the villa life was perfect for us. There is a patio and private balcony for each villa. Amazing. Powerful air con and two bathrooms with showers. Another great bonus was having laundry. There is a self-serve free washer and dryer on site. Seriously, this was epic as it's so humid in CR!

Safety:
100% secure. It's a gated community with security. We never even locked the door to our villa and neither did anyone else. It had a very relaxed feel and we liked that.

Location:
You can get a cab to Manuel Antonio (front desk will call for you), it takes about ten minutes and costs $10 or you can take a collectivo cab for 500 colones/$1 per person. The direct bus runs every fifteen minutes from Quepos town (a ten minute walk or two bucks in a cab, your call. I prefer the cab or colectivo as there isn't much of a sidewalk). Most days we'd bus to Manuel. They are frequent, modern and fun. Because you are higher up on the bus, the view is better.

Remember though, this a condo, NOT a hotel so don't be expecting a maid everyday etc...

The Condos are new, modern and beautiful. Better yet, while one is just 5 minutes to Manuel Antonio National Park. one gets the feeling of being in the country side, and what a wonderful feeling not having to be in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the Manuel Antonio and Quepos areas, which can be overwhelming!!!! The staff is very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Terrific choice, especially for families with children!

We went there last vacations and I assure you we have the best vacations what so ever. Manuel Antonio beach is not just the amazing sightseeing of the sunset falling on the sea, it's a natural reserve of one of the most amazing tropical woods you will find, and it's there, just right next to the beach. Hacienda Pacifica does let you enjoying all of that with the luxury of the lodging on a confort place to rest. The villages have all the equipment that a family need and the pool area has plenty space for all the condo so you have a great time. Guaranteed! You wont regreat!
