Rancho Pacifico is truly in a class of it's own. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left this whole experience exceeded our expectations. We have stayed at superb 5 star resorts before but I have to admit, Rancho Pacifico is without a doubt the best we have experienced to date. As they say..it's the little things that make a difference and that combined with the wonderful staff they have really does make this place flawless. If you stay at Rancho Pacifico, you have to treat yourself to a spa treatment and make sure you schedule it in the late afternoon when the light is beyond amazing and the Howler monkeys begin a symphony in the rainforest. It's incredibly private, peaceful, and well designed. Each different room/villa is unique and sighted to allow for unobstructed views of the ocean and rainforest.
I have never experienced a staff so professional and caring. Each person on the staff made the experience at Rancho Pacifico over the top from the moment we arrived. The food was such a highlight. Every meal was beyond perfect. This was my second visit to Costa Rica and on this stay, I only left Rancho Pacifico two times to go to the beach for a few hours. It is the first time I have ever enjoyed myself so much at a resort...that I really didn't leave. I also appreciate that the owners took the time to greet each and every guest and welcome them to Rancho Pacifico. We, like so many other visitors, will absolutely be returning to this special place year after year. WOW!

We just returned after 5 nights at Rancho Pacifico and it was truly perfect in every way. We were celebrating my wife's 40th birthday in search of a place that provided both activity and relaxation. Rancho Pacifico delivered on both accounts.

Right off the bat you notice that Garrison, Silvia and the staff at RP treat you like long lost friends the minute you arrive. Adriana, Mel (not Gibson), Ronny, Vianney, Alex, Anna, etc. were fantastic. They took very good care of us. Everyone here does multiple tasks and are empowered by Garrison and Silvia to make decisions so your stay is perfect.

There is plenty of activity right near by. There are two nice hikes (one to a waterfall and one up through the clouds) that literally start right outside your door. They were moderately difficult, but not impossible. We went Ziplining at a place nearby that provided a small informative nature hike through a preserve and then the thrill of 9 ziplines. We also went horsebacking riding along the beach and enjoyed some lively entertainment in Dominical. This was also set up by Adriana after we arrived and we were delivered and picked up perfectly. You don't need to worry about it before you go.

As far as relaxation, there are two things that really add to the experience. First, the spa on property is incredible. First rate overlooking the deep expanse of the rainforest. Had light rain one day that only added to the effect. Recommend the signature, but the hot stone was fantastic as well. Second, the food and drinks were really second to none. We looked forward to seeing Mel and Vianney at the bar and then the works of art that Chef Alex created each night. Local foods and fresh ingredients. We met some very nice people during dinner and would share experiences from the day before. (Probably would not have gone horseback riding but for this).

It takes a little bit to get there, but you are up in the rain forest surrounded by toucans, howler monkeys, etc. It should take a little bit to get there if you want to unplug and get away. I really can't think of a bad thing to say about Rancho Pacifico. It was paradise. We will be back (and soon).

What a beautiful place to get away. The drive up is an experience but worth it. We rented a treehouse and loved the open plan. It was cool enough with the fans. If you want a great massage visit Marco. Dinner and breakfast were good. Drinks were beautiful but over priced.

Coming all the way from Europe, I enjoyed the tranquillity of Rancho Pacifico. The views are out of this world, the accomodation is very comfortable and the staff is the most charming, relaxed, effective and smiling! In Europe we don't usually know the names of every staffmember,- here you do!
The food was always very nice and beautyfully arranged and served.
I have to mention, though, that you need a car to get anywhere, and if you are used to exercise you will find the gym a little boring (and running in the mountains very difficult!).
Afterall, no doubt: would love to come back bringing my husband!

I just spent 6 days at RP and just want to share that I had a wonderful time! The staff were extremely friendly, the food and the service was excellent, the spa treatments beautiful! Thank you all at RP for making this stay, with my dear friends, such a success.
