The hotel and restaurant are "hidden" on a very quiet spot on the beach. A tremendous setting with lush grounds and it is right on the beach! Only ate there once for a late breakfast and it was delicious. The staff (one Tico lady and one Gringo) we the best-friendly and very accommodating. This is CR and a little different... More

We ate at this place everyday while at esterillos oeste, and it was awesome The staff is the best in and out of the line up. Food was awesome and prices are reasonable. Pizza night is a highlight! As it is its whole atmosphere! Absolutely worth it a visit!

Hidden on the beach with great view of the ocean and waves. If your looking for a good breakfast, give the banana pancakes a try. They open at 7:30am. They offer the "tico breakfast" also. Eggs, beans & rice, fruits and coffee. My tip... If you like bacon, like most all places in Costa Rica. They only cook it for... More

We stayed at Rancho Coral the day before our wedding, and spent several of the following days having breakfast/lunch in their cafe. First off, the staff is an absolute delight. Felipe was so accommodating and friendly, and really made us feel at home. The location cannot be beat as you can walk right onto the nicest part of the beach... More

The entrance itself from the seaside gives you a warm welcome in the garden and once at the reception, the owner of the hotel made us feel home right away. We did not book in advance as we were travelling depending on the changing weather. While awaiting our room we did some surf instead ;-) All rooms have a nice... More

My husband and i simply loved this place. Amazing service, comfortable and nice rooms. We were so pleased to find a pet friendly place, it is difficult for us to actually go on vacation with our furry family members... They didnt serve lunch or dinner, but there are good restaurants nearby.

We ended up staying at this hotel, because the Costa Pacifica stole our money and our reservation. It turned out way better than the other hotel. The rooms have a kitchenette that is fully equipped with everything that you need to make a decent meal with drinks. Since there aren't many restaurants in the area, this feature comes in very...

My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful relaxing week in Costa Rica at Hotel Rancho Coral. This is a quiet town, with a few restaurants and a small grocery store. One restaurant is right at the end of the road (The Almond Tree) and it was really good--we went there 3-4 times. We rented surf boards from a spot around... More

We had a great time at Hotel Rancho Coral and it had everything we were looking for: beach front, dog friendly, a little kitchen to make our own dinners, and room for a family of 5.
