About Randy Villalobos
I'm a 41 years old Costa Rican form San José. I moved to Guanacaste 10 years ago with my wife, she works as a professional beach wedding photographer, that's one of the reasons we moved to this area near the Pacific Ocean. We live in Playas del Coco and have a son (5 years old) and a daughter (2 years old). I've been doing Property Management since we move to Coco. I started my company All Costa Rica Rentals 10 year ago providing rentals, management and maintenance services and recently I started with El Coco Tours, a company that provides Tours and Transfer services, we have our own vans and boats. That's a plus for our renters that would like to enjoy the beauties Costa Rica has to offer.

Great Kid friendly area
The condo here was a perfect location for families with younger children. It is next to two pools and a quick walk or golf cart ride to nearby stores and beach. The condo did get noisy at times due to neighbors but it quieted down before we were ready to crash. I definitely recommend for young families staying in the area.
Great vocation home
Very nice setting, 3 pools which are my kids’ favorite. Very well stocked kitchen. The whole family enjoyed this home.
Perfect location with exceptional accommodations and service
Laura was an extraordinary host for our stay in Pacífico. The place is beautiful inside and out with great security ensuring a safe, comfortable visit. Laura was very attentive and responsive to our questions and ensured all our needs were met. She offered additional services such as tours, golf cart rentals and shuttle services. The location is ideal to walk to restaurants or shopping. The beach is about a 15 minute walk or you can take a shuttle to the beach club if you choose. The beach club costs $25 per person per day but worth the experience of having a pool overlooking the beach, nice accommodations and great staff to provide beverages and food. All of the landscaping, pools and buildings are maintained exceptionally well. The condo itself is spacious, clean and has all the standard items needed. I highly recommend this condo and facility.
Great location and decor!
I really loved the location, amenities and decor! However the bathrooms both need new fixtures and updating to make it look clean and fresh. They seemed dirty and "grungy", not in line with with the clean kitchen. My son lives in a townhouse at Pacifico and he just opened the NUMU brewery near the airport. I want to bring friends , family, and investors from the USA down there to see his family and his brewery, and would love to have them stay in your condo. But I was very disappointed in the state of the bathrooms. I wonder if you might be able to take the time to fix them. I expect that we all could keep your place booked during all seasons, and that would help pay for it. Otherwise, I am sorry to say that I would need to look into another Pacifico condo. I wish you well. Karen Buethe
Great trip, but almost a disaster
We stayed at Pacifico in Playa del Coco in March 2019. The condo was spacious and basically had everything we needed. The condo could use some upgrading eg) floor and bathrooms. The twin beds were small and not comfortable.
On our arrival, Laura, the concierge, met us at the condo. She gave us a brief overview of the complex and information on tours. She said she would be happy to answer any questions or concerns we had. The following day the light in the master bedroom walk in closet was not working, so I messaged her to see if it could be replaced. Her reply was to ask me if the air conditioner was working, which I found strange. It was working, yes. She said the bulb was replaced recently. That night I was walking into the closet, which was dark, and I slipped and fell because there was water all over the floor. It was leaking from the ceiling, where the lightbulb was. I suffered bumps and bruises but it could have been very bad. When I messaged Laura she was less than helpful. She apologized for my "inconvenience", and I had to ask several times to have it looked at. The following day someone came in and "fixed" it, but it still continued to leak, just dripping. After several requests to have it looked at again, someone came and fortunately it stopped. But in the meantime I realized why she asked me about the air conditioner, as it was above the walk in closet. Based on the number of water stains, this had obviously happened before. If this had happened before, wouldn't it have been nice of Laura to warn us that if the light bulb was out then there was potential for a leak? I could have been seriously hurt and am truly shocked I didn't break any bones. In the midst of not getting replies from Laura about fixing the leak, I contacted the owner. He said it was not his issue, no apology, no concern. With the lack of concern and poor attention to detail, we decided not to book any tours etc through Laura. We found better and cheaper prices on our own.
The pools were nice, not crowded, and well cared for. A major advantage of staying at Pacifico is the proximity to the Auto Mercado grocery store (short walk), especially if you don't rent a car. The Hard Rock Café and other café that are part of the complex are overpriced and the food crappy. At the pool side hut it cost $7.50 US for a Corona, so we just brought our own beverages.
Despite all this, we had a great time. We would go back to Costa Rica for sure, but not at Pacifico.
Wonderful condominium and location
We had a wonderful stay. The condominium was in excellent condition with three good-sized bedrooms and a fantastic living area with a very comfortable couch, chairs and a large, new TV. The appliances were near-new and it was very convenient to have a washer/dryer in the unit. The Pacifico development is fabulous with several very large pools and a bar/restaurant next to the main swimming pool area. We have stayed here before and always enjoy coming back. The property is managed by Randy of El Coco Tours. We have also used his services in the past and he is very professional and always available. He also helped us with local transportation and fishing, boat tours. We will be back!
