"We loved the Hacienda with its open concept around the courtyard and swimming pool. The kitchen as part of this space was great both for meals and easy access to snacks and drinks. The bedrooms were comfortable, and it was nice to have the option of having and AC'ed space if needed, although like the recommendation we tried not to rely on that too much to acclimatize ourselves. Our group did kind of wish that the sitting/TV room had air conditioning. Also I'm not sure if it was typical of March in CR but there were a ton of mosquitos. So as long as you're prepared for that you will have a lovely stay at the Hacienda del Pacifico. The things we loved was the proximity to the beach. The staff. And we would strongly recommend the Friday Beach BBQ at the Hotel Capitan Suiza."

"We recently stayed in Stacey's condo for 2 weeks in July 2015. We were a family of 5 with 3 adults, an 8 yo and a 1 yo. All, with the exception of myself and the 1 yo, had stayed in the condo before, about 4 years ago.
The condo offers a nice size patio with a couch and chair, a fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms and 3 bedrooms (all with nice A/C, however we had a difficult time adjusting or turning it off - user error) Also, all rooms including the patio had ceiling fans which were well used and very effective. We didn't want for anything in the way of the condo. We truly enjoyed everything about it and would definitely stay there again. With our 2 week stay, housekeeping came mid-stay and cleaned, which we were not expecting, a nice surprise.
The grounds are well kept with gardens, a nice pool and when we got there a Ranchero (palapa covered sitting area with several tables and chairs to meet and get out of the sun or rain). Mid-stay they tore the Ranchero completely down with plans of building a new one. We are anxious to see the new one and missed it when it was gone. Attached to the Ranchero is a laundry building with two coin operated washing machines and two dryers. They ask you to pay $1000 colones per cycle (roughly $2 US) and you supply your own detergent. It was a wonderful plus for us to have access to this with two kids, not to mention we are light travelers and need to wash our clothes since we wear them several times throughout our holiday.
The complex is in a perfect location. Between the complex and the beach is a pasture filled with horses and cows. We enjoyed seeing them all the time. The horses take walks around town, down the street and on play on the beach, it is really pretty cool. Just around the corner is a large tienda which offers pretty much anything you might need as well as a bakery with fabulous goods including sandwiches made to order.
Town was a short walk, maybe 4 blocks? And the town is awesome with plenty of shopping and restaurants. We ALWAYS felt safe and for the 1st time ever traveling in Costa Rica we didn't see or hear about any petty theft in that area. The locals are very friendly.
I have spent a total of 10 weeks traveling in CR throughout a span of 12 years and have never seen as many howler monkey's in one place as I did just across the street from the condo complex. We heard them day and night and were able to get within 10 feet of them on several occasions. What Fun!"

"We had a fantastic stay at Casa Holmes with our three 20-something daughters. We have been home a week now and we all wish we had more than 10 nights to stay there. The home is so unique and enough cannot be said about the view. One of our favorite things was the refreshing saltwater infinity pool. It was in the 90’s while we were there and we were constantly taking dips in the pool. With the air conditioning and fans the home stays very cool and comfortable even in 90 degree weather. We would have been happy relaxing at Casa Holmes our entire stay and never leaving the house but since this was our first time in Costa Rica we wanted to make sure and do some exploring as well. As others have stated it is a short walk to the beach and town. We started each morning with a walk into town and definitely got our exercise climbing the driveway on our way back. We rented a 4-wheel drive with GPS and had no problem navigating and getting around. We were very happy we had a 4-wheel drive for some of the dirt roads in the area. We had Rocio of Rocio’s Kitchen Catering prepare two dinners and one brunch for us. The home is so beautiful that we thought it would be a treat to have several meals prepared for us there. Rocio did a fabulous job and cooked delicious meals that we all enjoyed. She even brought table decorations and left everything clean and tidy when she left. We did two different tours with Mainor of “Tours Your Way”. We highly recommend him as well. He structures his private tours based on exactly what you request and takes care of every detail. We thoroughly enjoyed our two days with him and did zip lining, horseback riding, mud baths, hikes to waterfalls, water slides, etc. The owner, Nita, and property managers, Wes and Lisa, were so easy to work with and were always available for questions and suggestions. There were a couple of maintenance requests that arose and they were very promptly taken care of. All in all we loved Casa Holmes and Costa Rica and can’t wait to return."

"We had a wonderful experience. It was better than we anticipated. The condo fit our needs perfectly. The owners have taken all your needs and desires into account. The property is beautiful and well maintained. A central location to many activities and restaurants. Will certainly return! We made many memories celebrating our anniversary with our family."
