About the neighborhood
The Resort

 Hacienda Pinilla is Costa Rica's premier beach resort community. It offers all of the luxury and amenities you want, while keeping the landscape and atmosphere true to Costa Rica's Guanacaste region. 

 You have access to the Beach Club (free with a stay at our villa - closed October), golf course, tennis courts, 7 restaurants, 3 different beaches, miles of mountain biking trails, 2 spas, gym, equestrian center, chapel, mini market and more, all within Hacienda Pinilla’s gated 4,600 acres. And just outside the resort is Tamarindo, the famous surf beach town, as well as all other Costa Rican nature and adventure activities!
Getting around
We have guests who don't rent a car for their stay, and instead rent golf carts to get around the resort (a great way to see wildlife, we have three 4-person carts available for rent!), including the 3 beaches, Beach Club, golf course and 12 bars and restaurants. They spend a lot of their stay here, inside Pinilla, and are able to take excursions when they'd like, and are picked up and dropped off at the villa as part of the tour. Others prefer the freedom and adventure of renting their own car for getting around the area, and to and from the airport. We are happy to help arrange car rental for all guests as well.
