Every thing was perfect and we enjoyed every aspect of our family vacation at this well appointed and stocked villa. Pure Pura Vida!
The villa was in a perfect setting for a relaxation getaway to Costa Rica! My family and I spent a week in this home and we had an absolutely amazing and unforgettable trip. Hacienda Pinilla has everything on property, and we took advantage of the restaurants, horseback riding, and the private setting beaches. The location of the villa was also close enough to escape to the mountains for spa treatments, experience zip lining tours, and go into the town to enjoy the restaurants and shops. We definitely recommend this property and we hope to return soon!
We just returned from a great stay in the property. We started with great communication with the Property Owner and a hassle free payment. The house is located in a complex close to the JW Marriott, Pinilla Golf course, Mansita Beach and the Beach Club. The community is private and quiet, perfect for a romantic or family getaway. Will come back again in the future... If you're thinking of Hacienda Pinilla, consider this a top choice.
What an awesome place to vacation for our Spring break! The villa was absolutely beautiful, with 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, it gave our family plenty of room to relax. The big kitchen had everything you'd ever need. It looks exactly like the pictures online! We enjoyed our coffee and breakfast on the patio every morning, with the sun and warm breezes. We woke up to the sound of birds every morning and enjoyed the beautiful sunsets every evening!! The beaches, pools, beach club and many restaurants on site made it easy to always find something fun to do, including surf lessons, zip lining, swimming, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, catching the waves in the ocean, eating the awesome Costa Rican food, taking naps in the hammock on the balcony and of course enjoying cocktails on the patio every night! We loved every minute of it and will definitely return to visit our many new friends that we made at Hacienda Pinilla! We "highly" recommend this to anyone interested in enjoying the good life and beautiful sights of Costa Rica!
From the moment we made our reservation to the very last second of our trip, this was by far the best experience and best vacation we have ever had. We have traveled quite a bit, but never had a vacation quite like this. As soon as we walked into the villa, we were in heaven. Bill was so helpful in making our arrangements, giving us recommendations, ideas for the kids, etc. And our reservation process was flawless.
The villa has every amenity you could ask for, it was decorated beautifully, very spacious, and great view of the lake just outside the back patio. Huge wrap around patios, 1st and 2nd floor! A large white bird greeted us throughout the day on the patio, it was our welcoming committee. Our concierge, Gustavo, was amazing, he came to our villa with maps, recommendations of places to visit, and even the locals favorite eating spots (Soda Las Palmas on the way to Tamarindo was great and cheap!) He also gave us a dance lesson! We bought groceries at Auto Mercado in Tamarindo, its the nicest grocery store around, a little pricey, but as Bill told us, we recognized the food there! And also tried some new things too.
We loved the beach club, the scenery was amazing. We really liked the food, it was not pricey at all, and the bar made great drinks, and smoothies for the kids too! From the beach club, its a short walk down the beach to get to Lola's Restaurant, we had read about it in our Costa Rica Books, it was really fun. There are wooden tables and chairs set up on the beach, they serve pizzas, salads, appetizers, a few main dishes, and lots of smoothies and drinks. At the beach club you can take surf lessons, rent surf boards and boogie boards. There is also horseback riding just down the road. We met a family of monkeys hanging out in a tree right outside the gate of our villa, at least 10 monkeys, that was definitely a highlight for us.
We highly recommend renting a car. Its not that hard to get around, if you have a map or navigation. But if you don't have a car, there is a shuttle that will take you where ever you want to go in Hacienda Pinilla. The beaches are gorgeous! No matter where we went, it seemed we were the only ones there! Sunsets at Playa Bonita, a short walk from the villa, were breathtaking!
All in all, it was a wonderful vacation. Everyone we met was so kind to us, from the security gate guards to the beach club staff! We can't wait to go back, and we all miss it already!
We loved our stay here! It was relaxing and adventurous all at once. We had easy access to multiple beaches, pools, restaurants, and activities. While the patio sitting was wonderful, surfing lessons at Playa Avellanas and SCUBA diving out of Tamarindo were highlights of our trip!
