“Nice rooms, good restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

The rooms at Hacienda La Pacifica are located in large attractive grounds with a lot of trees; we had good views of the wildlife and saw quite a few birds. Our room was one of a pair of habitationes, we had a shady tiled patio with sliding doors to the room and with rocking chairs to relax in. The bedroom was roomy with a good sized wetroom. The a la carte dinner menu had plenty of choice, we particularly enjoyed the delicious tilapia from their own estate, and the service in the restaurant was excellent - they even had insect spray on hand when I forgot to spray my feet before walking across to dinner. There were white tailed deer in the grounds, and the population of howler monkeys in the area means that they are often seen in the trees of the grounds and heard even more frequently! There is a river trail accessed from the grounds, this was very good for birds. Next door is the restaurant Coribici, they do great guided raft trips on the river.

My husband and I stayed for 1 night between destinations. We were in room 26.
The room has a twin and a double bed. We kept the bathroom door closed as there was a sewage smell coming from the shower. We could have dealt with that but upon returning to our room after a disappointing $100 dinner in their restaurant, we felt like we were sleeping on the grounds of a high security prison.
Guards walked laps every 10-15 minutes all night. We were amazed that they even searched the vehicles about every hour. I booked this hotel after getting advise on TA to do so and now regret that. I'm not sure if this is a high crime area or if we were the ones they were watching, but I would never stay here again. Plus it was one of the most spendy places we stayed...at almost $100 dollars for the room and $100 dollars for an undercooked steak and chicken Plate.

I have stayed at the Hotel Pacifica on many occasions and have always much enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, good food and beautiful grounds. The swimming pool is simply blissful!

I can strongly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a quiet getaway which isn't too far off the beaten track

We stayed for 2 days, the location and rooms are perfect, the service is really poor and they don't appreciate the clients, waitresses gossip each other about every client and even talk bad at your back, one waitress even insulted us, the manager told us that we can't play in the pool and the people from reception also will gossip about you, the place is perfect but I definitely I won't go again....

We stayed here for 2 nights. This was the most beautiful accommodation during our vacation in Costa Rica. The rooms are really rustic and nicely decorated, bathroom is really nice and clean and you have your own terrace. We didn't use the swimming pool because it was raining a lot during our stay.

It was realy a surprise to find this very nice hotel near the road. We liked to visit Palo Verde, but it was to far in one day, so we have been looking for a hotel close by and found Hacienda La Pacifica. We have been only one day, but we enjoyed the nature here and also the good food, the friendly people and the beautiful swimmingpool! The deer near our bungalow and also in the morning by the restaurant. The mainroad was far enough, you did not hear the traffic, we realy felt like in the jungle. A very good place to stay!!

Great rooms, good food, fantastic pool and great grounds for wildlife spotting! Would go back - only wish we had stayed more than one night. Do note that there are however two types of rooms at this resort - you need to stay in the newer ones (others in our group stayed in the older rooms and these were not as nice) - our room (8) was fabulous.
