Recently had a nine-day family reunion at Rancho Pacifico and it was by far one of the best vacation spots I have ever visited. What really sets it apart is the graciousness of the staff and the owners Mark and Marlo. Views are simply spectacular, great variety of very fresh and well prepared meals and an incredible staff...Highly recommended ! PURA VIDA !!!!!!

This is our 12th year celebrating our anniversary on Valentine's Day at Rancho Pacifico! We were married here in 2006 in front of family and friends, and RP has only improved over the years. This year I took my 4 brothers and their wives to celebrate what would have been my mother's 100th birthday. We were here for 8 days, and each was full of things to do, and just sitting around enjoying watching the toucans and fire-billed arakis. This year, for the first time we saw a huge" laughing hawk"- all white with a bandit's black across the eyes! We discovered a new beach, a new Baruka indian gift shop, and Bamboo Room, great new bar/music venue. After the family left, my wife and I stayed on another 5 days to take a vacation from our vacation! This place is drop dead beautiful, the staff are wonderful, the food and bar are fantastic, and the new owners are just great. My highest recommendation- or I wouldn't come back year after year.

I had a really wonderful time with owners Mark and Marlo at Rancho Pacifico. They were really great hosts, who made sure I felt welcome and like an honored guest in their home. It felt more like a home than a hotel, because there are only five accommodations. Breakfasts and lunches overlooking the jungle and the far-off coast were really delightful, and at night, you could see the lights of Uvita below. My villa was huge, and though there was no A/C, it was really comfortable and felt well-integrated into the jungle. I also had great fun hiking around the hotel and doing some excursions to the coast. It was such fun meeting Mark and Marlo, since they're from Chicago, like me! Note that the rooms have no phones and no televisions. If you want something, you have to head to the front desk.

We got married at RP in 2006 and have been coming back for our valentine’s anniversary every year since then. This time we rented the 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom villas and had four couples join us for another family celebration. RP exceeded our guests expectations- even though they were well informed about what to expect. The new owners have infused RP with lots of love and attention to the smallest details. The staff of RP could not be any better, they are the embodiment of hospitality. A 15 minute drive up a steep (but safe) mountain road to RP from the beach takes you to the rainforest which is 10 degrees cooler, had amazing views, and a wonderful engagement with wildlife. We love to sit on the deck of the villa in the morning and watch the birds which perch right next to us. You are likely to see howler monkeys and sloths too. So many day trips to choose from and then enjoy the sunset and delicious, beautifully presented dinners upon your return.

Rancho Pacifico is a beautiful retreat to rest and relax in a remote private location. If you like beautiful tropical rain forest, near pristine beaches and privacy, you'll love it. The staff are fantastic, and the owners, Marlo and Mark, add a personal touch and make you feel right at home.
