We found RP through our friends who raved so highly about the hotel that we had to check it out ourselves. What we found was that the hotel met and exceeded all of our expectations. We stayed in the Pinuelas Suite and it was extraordinary. The views laying in bed were full rain forest panorama and the bathroom shower/tub combo was luxurious. The room was plenty spacious and the deck area was perfect for early morning reading while the rain forest came alive. The rest of RP was equally as awesome. The common pool, bar, and dining area reflect a simple elegance that fits well into the rain forest. The meals were delicious and every night for dinner was a 4-course meal prepared by excellent chefs. The staff was definitely another added bonus to RP. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful with a guest to staff ratio that felt nearly 1 to 1. All needs were tended to and most needs were often anticipated. RP does an excellent job coordinating any excursions you may take during your stay, coordinating with local guides and ensuring we had adequate directions. Overall it was excellent and we have already sworn to return in the near future. I selfishly hate to leave a raving review because it will only increase RP demand, but it truly exceeded expectations and was fantastic.

Hotel's Favourite
This was our third stay at Rancho Pacifico but it had been 10 years since my wife and I had visited. The two previous stays were outstanding so expectations were super high. We knew ownership had changed and the resort had gone through a few changes so we were a bit concerned our experience wouldn't be as memorable as our previous stays. Let's just say our 4 days at RP this time around far exceeded our expectations. We arrived early evening and were quickly met by friendly and familiar staff and escorted to our room. We stayed in the Pinuelas suite and everything about it was perfect. The bed was extremely comfortable, the shower and tub were amazing, and we loved the wet bar tucked in the closet that included a small fridge. The small touches were really nice as well - beautiful flower arrangement, covered balcony, air-conditioning, umbrellas right outside the room. The best part about the room though was the view and privacy, yet it's only a few steps away from the pool and restaurant. We spent a lot of our time at RP lounging in the hot tub and pool while enjoying the wonderful fresh food and drinks at the restaurant. Those areas are right next to each other and have been remodeled since our last visit. They did an incredible job retaining the natural beauty and views while creating a very modern and open space that's extremely comfortable. What makes RP so magical for us are the staff members. They're truly like family. Steven, Maria, Vianney, Alex, Andrey, and everyone else we encountered are the absolute best. They're genuinely helpful and really took our experience to the next level. A few things to keep in mind. We always rent a 4x4 SUV and I absolutely love the drive up the mountain to Rancho Pacifico but it's probably not for everyone. It's about a 10-15 minute drive straight up from the town of Uvita. The dirt road is bumpy, steep, and winding. Also, the town of Uvita is great. Lots of good restaurants and amazing people. There are a few hikes around the property. The waterfall hike is a short, steep trail but totally worth it. We spent a good hour just hanging out in the river and playing in the waterfall. Lastly, keep in mind RP is in the jungle so you're going to experience critters, humidity, and other elements. It's all part of the Costa Rican experience.

My wife and I stayed at Rancho Pacifico in Treehouse Mono Congo for 6 nights on our honeymoon in early June. Every morning we woke up to views of the jungle and distant coast line. For not being air-conditioned, and being Central America in June, the elevation combined with screen doors and fans made it always feel comfortable. Our room was well-attended by the team at RP. Food and drinks were excellent. We dined every day, 3 meals, exclusively at RP and never ran out of options. We loved that the staff took care of EVERYTHING, from transportation and activities outside of RP, to shuttles to/from the airport, excursions into town, etc. They arranged spa services for us that were excellent as well. We were sad to leave, and absolutely would return! (Don't let "Rainy Season" in Costa Rica scare you. Yes, it rains every day, but not all day every day. Weather pattern we noticed was pleasant/sunny mornings, building to afternoon rain for 2-3 hours before clearing again at night.)

We are a couple from Switzerland and stayed one week at the resort to explore and relax. Rancho Pacifico is an oasis of civility and elegance about a 4 km drive up a steep hill, and surrounded by gorgeous views and nature. From our balcony we listened and watched as toucans trilled and perched in the trees and Capuchin monkeys grunted their morning wake-up calls. On our hikes a family of 5 spider monkeys swung overhead and a pack of 30 wild board quietly filed across our hiking path, with a few juvenile boar stopping to give us a look of curiosity. A lovely waterfall is a short hike away. Sitting quietly on our balcony after our hikes, a very friendly coati decided to join us and take a nap at the edge. A large gecko took refuge in the corner of the roof. Meals at Rancho Pacifico are varied, plentiful, creative, and delicious: local twists on standard cuisine, as well as local dishes served exquisitely. The best recommendation for Rancho Pacifico is the staff: engaging, welcoming, courteous, helpful, and respectful. Within minutes of arriving we felt at home. Many thanks to Andrey, Jesper, Steven, Vianney (who makes an excellent gin martini!), Noellia and all the others for making our stay so enjoyable.

Rancho Pacifico was in a word, perfect. Marlo and Mark have created a space that truly feels like walking into a magical world. The resort is stunning with jungle and ocean views. They thought of every detail. Every single staff member was incredible, thoughtful, soul-filled and passionate about being able to serve and help us create beautiful memories. And they recommended and scheduled peak experience tours and outings with incredible guides. I have been home a week but I can’t stop thinking about and reflecting upon my time at Rancho Pacifico. I can’t wait to go back! And thank you so much everything!

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon in Costa Rica in June and had the best time. Racho Pacifico is an amazing small hotel with wonderful facilities, amazing food (4 course meal every night which was fantastic) and super freindly staff. When the weather was bad the friendly owners even organised an amazing bourbon tasting for us at the bar. Amazing hotel.

My husband and I came to RP for our honeymoon. We had read all of the amazing reviews and got to experience all of it first hand. This was the best experience we’ve ever had and the resort was top notch. We felt like part of the RP family while were there - the staff greeted us by name every time they saw us. The dinners were incredible - we loved each course and it was a delightful experience. Cocktails were so delicious and cocktail hour was fun to mingle with other guests. We ended up meeting another couple also from Denver who were on their honeymoon too. We stayed in the Puma Treehouse which was unique perfect for us wanting to experience the rainforest. It was completely open air and the views were amazing. It cooled down at night with the fans so we never felt too hot. The housekeeping service was excellent too. Marlo helped us with transportation to and from SJO as well as a rental car for a few days while we were there. Our excursions were planned by Steven and Noelia - shout out to Steven for grabbing us some coffee at the plantation nearby. We also had taxis arranged for us as well. We loved every minute at Rancho Pacifico. You can tell the whole team enjoyed being there. We definitely plan to return for an anniversary and would love to come during another season and check out one of the villas. I highly recommend staying at Rancho Pacifico. Every detail is thoughtful and intentional. Thank you, RP! We can’t wait to come back.

Rancho Pacifico was the ideal destination for our honeymoon. We wanted a place to relax in gorgeous surroundings and that wasn't bustling with too many other guests. We happened upon RP by chance as we browsed the internet for destinations, and immediately knew this was the place! Fair warning: pictures cannot do RP justice. The serenity, the exceptional hospitality, the extraordinary food and beverage service, the accommodations...everything about RP is tailored to make a relaxing, memorable stay! We enjoyed getting to know the incredible staff, who showed was what Pure Vida is all about. We rarely left the property, except to enjoy a fantastic day at the beach; the rest of the time, we hiked the various trails, swam in the pool, read on our balcony, and simply enjoyed the magnificent views. I highly recommend Rancho Pacific for any couple looking for a romantic, memorable getaway!
