Beautiful Hacienda Pinilla but we wont return.

  • 3 of 5

Hacienda Pinilla is wonderful- we stayed three weeks and had a great time. The owner/manager lives in California and was also very helpful.

This particular unit is beautiful just like the other units but we did we have some issues with their internet and TV setup. Their TV and modem/router are 11 years old and need updating. Internet would constantly power cycle- which prevented streaming. The only TV is upstairs in the loft where the kids sleep so once the kids go to sleep you cant watch TV. Now if your only staying for a week you can probably live with it but if your coming for an extended trip you might consider bringing another TV for downstairs and a router. We actually brought a wifi extender cause we we’re told by another friend the wifi doesn’t work upstairs. We tried to address the issues with Val before arrival but she wasn't helpful. Instead we packed a 19inch TV in our suit case.

When we arrived the internet was only working at .5mbs download- Valerie was nice enough to upgrade it to a faster speed but it wasn’t without stress. It took me about three days of working with Cable Tica and numerous emails to Val- the local manager didn’t help at all.

Regarding Value; I think this unit is one of the cheaper units in H.P. We’ve also stayed down in Playa Negra and Avellanas and its my opinion that H.P. is overpriced for what it has. You can rent a beach front house in a gated community in Playa Negra for the same price as one of these condos. Yes- you don’t get the infrastructure that H.P. offers but you get to be right on the water with your own private pool. We had another friend that stayed in this same unit a month prior and he also shared the same sentiments. Safe Travels!!

Perfect getaway..,..

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time in Costa Rica last week. Wish I was there now! Thanks to Val for opening up your home to my family. We all loved your place! It was so nice and way nicer then the pictures you have online. My wife who is fussy about everything loved it there. You had everything we needed. I even left a few extra beers for the next person that comes. Truly wonderful accommodations. We tried all your restaurant recommendations too. They were all good. Only negative I could find was the ride from the main gate (10 min) to the 2nd gate but in the end it was worth it. The surfing is awesome at "little hawaii" which you have the easiest access to from this villa. We had some much space too in your condo we truly felt like we were right at home. Loved the beach club there which you need to pay $20 per family. You can use it for a meal credit, drink credit or whatever you want. We went there everyday with the kids and they loved the pool. For me it was ideal because I could surf and hang with my family and not feel like I was leaving them for long.

Perfect Surf Trip

  • 5 of 5

I want to stress what an incredible venue this is for the perfect surf trip (and you can bring the wives and not have to use that credit...). First off, because it sits on miles of private coastline, it is near impossible for anyone except guests of this property or the hotel guests to have access to several quality surf spots. We surfed everyday alone or with 1-2 residents who then gave us tips on other private/secret spots. The beach club you can use is a Costa Rican version of the beach club at the Biltmore in Santa Barbara (infinity pool on the beach), except that it's in front of a quality point wave with warm water. Then there's the JW Marriott next door. This condo is more like a high quality home with upscale but comfortable decor. Super secure, tranquil at night when back at home. Perfect adventure..

Wonderful Family Vacation...Pura Vida indeed!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely, relaxing & fun time staying in Costa Rica at Casa Las Olas! It was so convenient having the amenities of home - being able to cook meals, do laundry, etc.- while in the middle of paradise. The condo. is in a great location - you can walk to the Marriott and use their facilities, or take a quick drive to any of the close by beaches. Close to lots of local, fun activities - such as horseback riding, ziplining, surfing, doing touristy things in Tamarindo - you name it. We traveled with myself, my husband and our 7 year old daughter & we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Very family friendly, but also ideal for a quiet getaway. We had such a great time & hope to make it back again some day! Pura Vida!

AMAZING Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautifully furnished and spacious with a great upstairs veranda that is the perfect spot for morning coffee, an afternoon siesta or evening cocktails. A short walk or drive places you on a stretch of stunning beach and several great surf spots. Our week at the condo was serene and relaxing. The Marriott Hotel is only walking distance away when you want restaurants, spa services or use of their facilities. We loved walking to Lolas restaurant and lounging by the clubhouse pool. Tamarindo, horse-back riding and ziplining are close by so you can create your own perfect vacation blend of fun activities and relaxation.

What a vacation!!! I sooo wish I could have stayed longer. Once you get into the lifestyle there it is hard to beat. The home has everything you could possibly need and so well maintained. It is also in such a good location for the beach, restaurants and spa. I would highly recommend staying here.
