My husband and I stayed at RP for 6 nights in mid March 2017. We stayed in the Villa Romantica. This villa has a private infinity pool. We loved it. We enjoyed the pool each day! The villa is much like a bungalow. The bedroom is upstairs with an air conditioner. Thank the Lord for that because it was hot and humid the entire stay. Karla helped us with booking out trips and renting our car. Vennay was an awesome bartender. He makes a killer margarita! We actually loved the 10 minute mountain climb on the sandy rocky rock up and down the mountain. We had so many laughs! Ana and Oval were wonderful in the dining area! It is a very intimate atmosphere at RP. We took the National Geographic tour on the river, Sierpe Azul River Tours. Enoc was an amazing guide. I felt very safe amongst the crocodiles. We explored random roads up and down the nearby mountains and came upon several really cool waterfalls. I came home with some great photographs of the wildlife and countryside. We also loved visiting the Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary!

This was my first trip to Costa Rica and based on my experience at Rancho Pacifico, I absolutely made the right choice! The resort is nestled high on a hillside with breathtaking panoramic views of the rain forest and the Pacific with a perfect view of Whale's Tail. The drive up is steep and bumpy but also worth it! We stayed in the one bedroom Villa Romantica. Wow, what a view!! It sits just a staircase away from the main pool but it's completely private. It was a very convenient location to everything. Only the bedroom has air conditioning but we only used it for sleeping. It was impossible to sleep in because the Howler Monkeys started their calling about 5:30AM. It was a perfect alarm clock! The grounds are immaculate as was our villa. We were shocked to find out that there are no keys to the rooms but quickly learned that there is no need for keys. They have a safe for valuables but I left my computer out all the time and nothing ever went missing. The staff is what is really the icing on the cake. Most of them have been there for many years. Alex the manager is always on top of everything, making sure the guests are being taken care of. Vianney the bartender is the most genuinely friendly guy and we spent most evenings talking with him. Ana and Oval in the dining room were very gracious and a joy to be around. Jose and Luis were so friendly giving us rides or pointing out a sloth! Karla was a wonderful concierge and never fussed when we wanted to change our plans. The food is wonderful, we kept meaning to eat out but ended up having every meal at the resort. A great touch is also Mia the pug who visits all of the guests. I wanted to take her home with me. The staff is so small that you really get to know them and they become friends. The last night I was in tears because I didn't want to leave! You will not regret staying at Rancho Pacifico, I can't wait to return!!!

My daughter (29) and I planned a trip to Costa Rica just to have some girl time. We wanted something a little different than our typical all inclusive beach vacation so we chose RP because it sounded like an adventure. It was definitely an adventure, but interesting, it can be whatever you want it to be: quiet and relaxing, fun and exhilarating or pure adventure. How? The employees see to it that you have the exact vacation that you want. We flew into San Jose and rented a 4 wheel drive vehicle to make the 3 hour drive to Uvita (which was beautiful) but arrived after dark. ( I would suggest arriving in the daylight if you are driving yourself). We put our vehicle in 4 wheel drive and began the steep ride up the mountain. We laughed so hard wondering what we had gotten ourselves into. After about 10 minutes, we arrived in a paradise! Our accommodations were comfortable, clean and private with one wall with open screening looking out into the rain forest with unspeakable views. The sounds of the rain forest are awesome. Breakfast and Supper were incredible. Cocktails were wonderful with free appetizers. We hiked the waterfall trail, went to the secret beach (RP sent us with umbrellas, chairs and beach towels), went down the snake river on a private National Geographic tour where we saw Howler monkeys, White Face monkeys and Squirrel monkeys.(Enoc was a great tour guide), and went scuba diving on Cano Island (this is the only thing we wouldn't recommend. The company was great but the diving was below average). We also spent a lot of time reading and relaxing. We can't say enough about the staff. We got to know them well. On the morning we left, they walked us out to the car and waved as we left. It felt as if we were leaving family!

Excellent service, great staff, starting with the concierge Karla, food best we had in Costa Rica, breakfast is included in the room and very creative. Dinner changes every night but if there is a menu you do not like they will make something specially for you which is excellent service. Beds are excellent, there is no AC but being high up and the way the rooms are designed there is always a breeze passing through. Views of the Whale's tail in Uvita are probably the best in the area. I would definitely recommend this place and return myself

We stayed as a party of 4 in July having travelled across many locations in Costa Rica and found Rancho to be an absolute gem of a find. Our driver described the hotel as being in the clouds! And it really is. It’s situated high up in the most breath-taking location, which absolutely takes some beating. The backdrop of mountainous rainforest echoes with sounds of nature and wildlife. We had moved around Costa Rica and had been enjoying all the adventure and activities on offer and anticipated to do the same around Rancho but such was the surrounding beauty of the stunning location we actually spent most of our time at the hotel gazing, talking, eating and relaxing. A couple of heavy rainy downpours made the experience even more awesome as we watched from our villa nature’s magnificence. On our first night, we were treated to the most spectacular lightshow as an electric storm hit the coast! During the day, we enjoyed some early morning treks, which were no walk in the park. Small recommendation for the hotel would be to supply guests with some maps showing where to go on these great treks… We saw plenty of birdlife, reptiles and amphibians along the way. We stayed in 2 villas and both had unbelievable views and were very comfortable….Our favourite was the two bedroom villa, which has a fantastic balcony with full views of the coast and rainforest. The food was sophisticated and very good - breakfast, lunch and dinner were all excellent. What makes this place even more special is the great staff. We were truly sad to leave as we felt the wonderful staff had made our stay even more special. We told them that they did not know how exceptional they were and we really meant it. From the moment we arrived we were looked after so well. Nothing was too much trouble…they were so accommodating, explaining anything from local cuisine to where to go trekking or calling us to show us some wildlife that had been spotted in the grounds. The gardener Jose, is passionate about wildlife and I would suggest the perfect person to lead nature tours around Rancho. We even woke up early to go with him on a walkabout to see what he could spot. Rancho and their staff are an absolute credit to Costa Rica and we would go back in a heartbeat.
