We ended up staying at this hotel, because the Costa Pacifica stole our money and our reservation. It turned out way better than the other hotel. The rooms have a kitchenette that is fully equipped with everything that you need to make a decent meal with drinks. Since there aren't many restaurants in the area, this feature comes in very...

My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful relaxing week in Costa Rica at Hotel Rancho Coral. This is a quiet town, with a few restaurants and a small grocery store. One restaurant is right at the end of the road (The Almond Tree) and it was really good--we went there 3-4 times. We rented surf boards from a spot around...

We had a great time at Hotel Rancho Coral and it had everything we were looking for: beach front, dog friendly, a little kitchen to make our own dinners, and room for a family of 5. The owners were friendly. We live in Costa Rica and were happy to find a dog friendly hotel. We took lots of walks on...

I loved staying at the Rancho Coral, and will stay again next time I visit Costa Rica. The room was comfortable. It wasn't 5star plush extravagant, but it was very nice. The animals on the property (cats and dogs and chickens) are all friendly and cute. The location is wonderful, we were right on the beach. Laying in the hammocks,...

If you want to get away from the big commercial hotels, rancho coral is the perfect answer. Right on the beach, in a sleepy town with an awesome restaurant down the street (los almendros, I reviewed it separately), this hotel is run by a very friendly couple who make you feel right at home. Nothing fancy but they do have...

Just returned from a last-minute stay at Hotel Ranch Coral, and I cannot say enough what a delightful and relaxing, beautiful spot this is! Owners are on site, and this is a family-run paradise on the beach...a 7 unit hotel that is affordable and safe and secure. Rooms are comfortable, unique and include food preparation kitchen, but there is a...

Dog lovers! This is a charming hotel run by wonderful people and located on a quiet beach. The rooms are immaculate and have kitchenettes. A local market is in walking distance as well as some good restaurants. If your looking for a place to chill out and get away from the crowded, beach cities - this is an excellent choice....

Rancho Coral is right on the beach and is much like a motel in the USA was 30 years ago. The air conditioning worked (and that is not always the case in Costa Rica) and it is just short walk to be in the Pacific Ocean. It was nice to have lots of hot water too. The beach is is...
