Privileges of staying in staying in Hacienda Pinilla extend beyond the world-class amenities such as the exclusive Beach Club, JW Marriott & Spa, 3 miles of pristine beaches, Championship golf course, tennis & fitness center, year round tropical surf, an Equestrian Center, and an onsite medical clinic. Guests have the opportunity to enjoy a unique and tropical lifestyle, sharing and creating memories with family and friends in an eco-wonderland. Guests interested in offshore fishing and scuba diving charters, sunset cruises, supermarkets, boutiques, restaurants, and night life can explore Tamarindo—a quaint beach town just 10 minutes away.
As our guest you will have the benefit of our manager and concierge, Nella. Nella has worked with us for over 8 years and is a great resource for your vacation. Nella can arrange airport shuttles, rental cars, booking tours and activities, restaurant recommendations and reservation, grocery shopping and she is only a phone call away if you have any questions or need anything during your stay.
We are a family of four. We have two older kids and this place was just perfect. Not crowded and so comfortable.
Alot of monkeys Birds and wildlife all over property. We loved sitting on the large patio and we could walk a few yards to the pool . There is also the JW Marriot withing walking distance with alot of restaurants and bars.
The beach is also walking distance and very close. I loved having the washer and dryer and they will stock your kitchen with groceries if you would like ahead of time. Nella the Manager is awesome! The best and always available! We love this Villa and will go back to this one again!
My husband and I, along with my best friend and her husband, settled on this property after a lengthy search on VRBO. I chose the property for many reasons (e.g., security, beach proximity, distance from the airport, area attractions), but mostly for the references made to Nella. Nella's help, guidance, recommendations, and overall presence made our stay absolutely perfect. Her recommendations for attractions (zip lining, snorkeling, best beaches) were all spot on. Additionally, every restaurant she recommended was great. The villa was impeccable! It was clean, spacious, and had every amenity one could want. We had easy access to the pool, and loved sitting on the spacious veranda in the morning. I do recommend renting a car and getting the additional insurance. Most of the roads in and around Hacienda Pinilla are solid, but we did blow out a tire on a nearby dirt road. With Nella's help and the help of Budget rental car, Budget came out and changed the tire that same night! Hacienda Pinilla is its own secure and gated small community. You have access to the JW Marriott, La Posada (another boutique hotel with a fantastic restaurant), various beaches, and the Beach Club. We frequented the beach club often for lunch and lounged around the pool and walked the beaches. The Marriott was a bit too commercial for us. We often went into the nearby town of Tamarindo. We were happy to be able to drive and access Tamarindo whenever we wanted, but we appreciated the tranquility of Hacienda Pinilla. Overall, we all had a phenomenal time and would love to go back. I don't think we would choose to stay anywhere else!
My wife and I "loved" the villa, it is a great size for one family with 4-5 people, at least 2400 sq. ft. +/-. We were originally going to stay next door at the JW Marriott, however, we wanted a little more room, and the option to make some meals, such as breakfast, lunch or a quick snack. The other important thing we wanted was a place to wash our clothes without having to pack for 10 days, so we packed lighter. Having this villa made all of the above possible for us.
Nella Umana is the rental property contact, as well Bryant and Dave. Nella was absolutely a great contact and host! We gave her a list of groceries a few days before our arrival, and when we arrived, everything was there. Secondly, we arrived really late, she made entering the villa easy for us, and contacted us the next day to make sure everything was ok. In fact, we didn't have our rental car yet, so she offered to pick us up and show us around the resort area. It was great to have her show us around, it gave us a greater idea of the area. She also suggested some good places to eat.
Finally, you will have access to the Beach Club nearby, and it was first class! Plus you can also walk down the beach about a 15-25 min. walk and eat at Lola's right on the beach. Worth the walk! (note: they are closed on Monday's and only open for lunch, maybe breakfast)
On our next trip back to Costa Rica, we would definitely stay here again! Pura Vida!
We just arrived home from 12 days at this lovely condo. It was comfortable, decorated nicely, well-kept and a bonus being an end unit. We have three young children (5, 8 and 10) who were able to sleep nicely downstairs while we slept upstairs (the one and only drawback of the condo was the bed in master was very hard...). Nella set us up with food as our flight landed late in the evening. We sent a grocery list ahead of time and it was all there waiting. What a treat!
We spent days at the lovely Beach Club, the Marriott, the gorgeous Playa Langosta, surfing, shell hunting, spotting monkeys....it was the perfect family vacation! We spent spring break here last year as well (at different condo...liked this one way better!).
We ate at Lola's, KonTiki pizza (cool spot), Marriott, beach club...and we had the luxury of making some breakfast and lunch meals at home for the kids. We used the cooler provided to pack up some days and head to Playa Negra and Langosta. Perfect!
We took advantage of the small gym and got a little exercise in, too! We were fortunate to have friends renting two other condos in Palma Real (families)....so we'd swap kids and allow for some exercise time in the mornings.
We'd end our evenings at the beach playing soccer, volleyball, drinking yummy drinks.....sunsets are AMAZING here!
Thank you, thank you for opening your home to us. It was very beautiful and ideal for our family.
My family just returned from Hacienda Pinilla. Our trip was absolutely wonderful. Everyday was an adventure. The Villa was lovely, just like the pics! The grounds are beautiful. My husband and children (8, 10) found coconuts on the ground upon arrival, split them open and drank the juice right on the patio. We rented a golf cart so we very easily popped from one beach to the next on the property. We explored the estuaries at the end of Langosta and on Avellanas. The kids loved the lava/rock beaches and were able to climb around them when the tide was out. The Beach Club was perfect and a great spot to hangout, swim, rent surf boards and take lessons. FYI, surfing is harder that it looks but must be attempted. After watching the most beautiful sunsets, we often rode around the property looking for monkeys. One evening, we happened upon a family of about 20 monkeys, including baby monkeys. We took advantage of Nella for grocery shopping, transportation and surfing. She was very helpful. We dined at the JW Marriot several times, ordered out from the restaurants and swam there, very convenient. We also used their concierge and Swiss Travel for an excursion to Buena Vista Ranch/Mega Combo. Its was the highlight of our trip and a must for children since it includes zip lining, a waterslide down the side of volcano, horseback riding and hot springs. I chose Hacienda Pinilla for its safety. It definitely was safe. Although I loved visiting the towns of Tamarindo and Langosta, is was not the atmosphere I was looking for and I am glad we chose to stay at the villa at Hacienda Pinilla.
My husband & I had a totally relaxed vacation staying at Hacienda Pinilla. The pool onsite is great and the beach club even better! The home is beautiful and furnished with all the necessities. Located a short drive from Tamarindo and a short walk from the J.W. Mariott resort (driveway into Palma Real and Hacienda Pinilla is right next to Mariott driveway so follow signs for Mariott).
We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Costa Rica.
