We stayed here in November 2018 and had booked months in advance. As the date approached, the staff notified us that the property was undergoing renovations that were taking longer than expected and the pool and restaurant may not be available. We were given the option of a reduc

This place is not like most resorts! They have a select group of highly dedicated staff, with two owners that go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome. The staff is incredibly friendly, kind and accommodating. We got to chat with many of them at length about their li

Hi Erika - Thank you so much for your kind review. As you know, Rancho Pacifico was closed for renovations the last few months. Our staff is delighted to have our doors open again and to have the opportunity to serve guests like you. We are all thrilled to know that you had such an enjoyable honeymoon experience. We wish you all the best and look forward to serving you again soon - perhaps an anniversary trip?? - Mark

It’s been one month since we stayed at Rancho Pacifico and we have missed it every single day since then! If you are looking for true Costa Rica jungle (but with the luxury) then Rancho Pacifico is for you. From the moment we arrived everyone was so enjoyable! The owners were so

Dear Segolshani - Thanks very much for your kind words. It was our pleasure to create the best possible Costa Rica experience for you. As you may know, we temporarily closed the hotel for renovations shortly after your stay. We will be re-opening in November, and Rancho Pacifico will be even better than before! There probably won't be many reviews posted until we re-open, so we will savor yours until then! Please be sure to come back and see all the improvements soon. - Mark

We would gladly go back!
Great view, comfortable rooms.
We were fortunate to be the only guests so could really enjoy the place.
They are about to remodel so it will be even better.
Had a minor incident (not everything on the menu was available) however, the way they treated us c

Who has recent experience staying in the "Deluxe Terrace Room" category? Some reviews have complained of it being too small, dark, and lacking in storage. Debating between Rancho Pacifico, Hacienda Altavista, and Casa Chameleon Las Catalinas for a March vacation.
I did read your detailed review, however, and found it very helpful!

My wife and I are planning on going but looking at the dining options. The restaurant looks amazing but I wanted to know an estimate of cost. Obviously it's luxury so I am expecting some cost for food but I'd like to be able to have some idea of cost so we can plan appropriately. Should we embark out for food in the local area? Thanks for any help.
Do a package and you will have 3 nights of dinner included. The food is wonderful and the service is outstanding. We found the meals to be very large so you can easily split or share as well.

Hi there, how far is the drive from the airport to the hotel and what airport do you recommend flying into? How do we get to the hotel?
You can actually contact the hotel before you leave with your flight information and they can arrange travel for you too. This is a cheaper method than a cab. It'll save you about a hundred dollars. If this is your first time to CR I would NOT rent a vehicle, unless you are very used to driving in Central American countries. It's a bit crazy especially getting out of San Jose. Enjoy your trip!!!

My husband and I are are staying at RP in September and rented a villa. Has anyone that's rented a villa experienced spiders, scorpions or snakes in your room? I am excited to be so close to nature but worry I won't be able sleep because I will be thinking about that. Thanks!
We did not see scorpions or snakes but there were a lot of lizards and insects. They clean the room daily, though, so you just need to keep the door closed so nothing will come in. It's not scary stuff though just bugs

"The one-bedroom romantic villa is the only one with AC"
"Recommend choosing a villa very close to the lodge as there is not a routine shuttle and walking can be challenging in rain or darkness."
"The "Villas" have A/C and the "Treehouses" have ceiling fans. The Villas have kitchens."
"The Treehouses are completely private."
"Tree houses are best views and secluded -- perfect for a romantic get away!"
