My family and I had a great time staying at the pacifico. The condo was equipped with everything needed to prepare homemade meals.
The condo was spacious and the view was amazing. We had the privledge of watching the sloth every morning climb up the tree in front of our condo. This in its self made my trip, as well as the view. The view. The view from the patio.
Another plus was having the taxi line steps away from the entrance. We were spoiled with not having to wait for a taxi like many passer Byers looking for a cab ride.
The condo is a short drive to the beach. A cost of $6-10 each way and just as far to the park.
We also paid to have their driver pick us up and drop us off at the airport. It was well worth it after a long plane ride. The van was spacious for all 5 of us. We all had our own recline seat. Plus he stopped at a couple of landmarks on the drive up and drive back.
Next time we visit Costa Rica. We will definitely stay here again. The property is secured and there is always a worker or guard onsite and there's wifi.
We are a family of 5 with 3 tweens and rented 2 South. Great location with spectacular views. We saw macaws, monkeys and sloths right off our patio daily. The condo is absolutely beautiful. Very spacious with plenty of room for everyone. We were within walking distance to many good restaurants. Our only complaint was that there were several maintenance issues that needed to be addressed during our stay...ie) dryer did not work, door would not lock, broken shower. Good news is that they were responsive and all items were fixed during our stay. The beach is close by. We walked one afternoon but it is a long walk back up a hill so we drove the other days. A 4 wheel drive vehicle is ideal for the 'nature beach' as you can park on the beach in the sand.
As for activities, we went inshore fishing and would recommend Azul, White water rafting and zip lining. All within 45-60 minutes and you will be picked up at the property. I would recommend that you book these on your own as we had issues with the booking with the local management company. Overall, we would recommend and stay at 2 South again.
Loved 3 North! Incredible view and so spacious! A kitchen fully equipped to cook in and a perfect deck to dine on. Laundry in suite, concierge close by and a welcoming plunge pool added to our already well met expectations!
We stayed four nights at the penthouse unit at Pacifico. Although the unit was spacious with a view of the ocean, the lack of basic amenities and compound really bother me. There was no washer/dryer in the unit even though it was advertised. There was no grill on the balcony for a nice cook out. Each bathrooms with very limited shower gels, no soap, and all conditioners.And the house keepers keep leaving 6 bottles of conditioners with one shower gels thru out our stay. Really lack of common sense. There were not enough bath towels, we had to keep asking for it. There is one little pool, more like the size of a giant bathtub. You can't get to the beach without taking a bus or a little hike. One good thing, the people of Costa Rica,including the concierge/receptionist that I met, they are very friendly and helpful during my visit.
I have been lucky in my life to have stayed in some beautiful places in amazing locations.
This is something else! The view feels like your are on that planet you have dreamed of ,
You know the one with mountains , deep valleys, jungle ocean views and sounds of
Life from everywhere. What is even crazier is that the room itself is as breathtaking as the
View. I will be insisting that everyone I know see this place. Both the view and the room
Are 6 stars---and I am picky. And I'm lazy---still felt that I had to write my first review
On. A view , a room and a staff that are out of this world.
