This was my second visit to Rancho Cannatella and the improvements are amazing! A/C in the rooms, new paint all over, updated fixtures and bedding - it's truly amazing! I took stand up paddle board lessons again this year. Joseph is an amazing teacher. I had a ball! Blakely and Joseph are wonderful hosts - great suggestions for yoga, workouts,... More

We had a slightly different reason to visit Rancho Cannatella as my daughter and grandkids live near by, so we needed a home base. Joseph and Blakely made that happen, as well as encouraging the kids to play in the large pool, which we did extensively. The shallow kids pool was perfect. In addition the beach is very close, as...

This was my 5th trip to Costa Rica and by far the best vacation ever. If you haven’t been to Pavones you’re missing out. Pavones Point is walking distance from Rancho Cannatella. You have your own private beach right out front with beautiful views of the gulf and Matapalo. This place is gorgeous and the locals are so friendly. Joseph... More

I had a paddle lesson and loved every minute. Right on the ocean, soft ocean breezes, fruit trees everywhere and lovely rustic accommodations. Many different outdoor options - boat tours, surfing,...

Have a great time with Joe and the family. Lovely surroundings....just a short walk to the surf to get some great Pavones beauties. Joe is very knowledgeable about the surf and the various surf spots and he surfs really well. The cabins are cosy, BBQ outdoors, easy parking, great Internet and decent après surf meals. All in all this is... More

The owner, Joseph, and his family, could not have been friendlier, or more helpful. The location is incredible, right on the beach, just south of the river, with amazing rock formations and tide pools, and the best views of the surfing action. The pool and gardens are nice. Town square is within walking distance, or a short drive. Good food... More
