We stayed at Rancho Armadillo on the first half of our Costa Rica vacation, and I am not sure that I have ever been so happy with a lodging pick in all of my travels. The grounds were beautiful and the loft overlooking the pool and with a view of the bay was the perfect setting to relax and soak in Costa Rica. Our room was well kept, comfortable, and large (though the draw of Costa Rica in general and the outdoors at Rancho Armadillo meant that little time was spent in the room). All of these aspects met my expectations, but what set's Rancho Armadillo apart is the customer service that Rick provides. Rick is always checking to make sure you have the information that you need to have a wonderful meal, activity filled day, or just a great time. He knows each of the restaurants in town and takes the time to hear your likes/dislikes/special concerns to make suggestions that will really ensure your best experience. He similarly knows the various places to visit in Guanacaste and gives you a true and honest assessment of what the activities entail and the positives and negatives of each. He is happy to call ahead to both restaurants and activities to make sure that his guests are treated well when they arrive. I feel very confident in saying that I have never come across another establishment of any kind that provided the level of customer service that Rick did on our trip. I would recommend Rancho Armadillo to anybody that is traveling to Costa Rica.
