Beautiful Villa + Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this striking, well-appointed townhome was wonderful. There is plenty of room, both inside and out, to find a place to read on your own or to gather the entire crew. We cooked most meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. I really appreciated having reverse osmosis water in the kitchen. The home is fitted with nice sheets and towels (including beach towels). It was great to have a washer and dryer available (particularly after long hikes or going for a horseback ride). The proximity to the Palma Real pool was nice, as was the short walk to the Marriott. Hiking to Lola’s was a highlight (watch the tide!). There are countless beaches to explore, lots of wildlife to enjoy viewing, and a multitude of beautiful hikes in this general area.

Our trip to Costa Rica was great fun – having such a lovely place in which to reside surely added to our experience. I would be delighted to stay here again! FYI: Elisabet answered all of my questions thoroughly and with kindness. It was a pleasure to work with her.

Relax and explore at your leisure

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location and large town home to be used as a base of operations for exploring the northwest coastline of Costa Rica. Excellent amenities and present but not imposing security for transiting vehicles. Some local restaurants nearby and markets within a 20-30 minute drive. Good setup for cooking meals nightly. Close proximity to a fairly large pool with few people (at least during our visit). Great for beach goers and self explorers. Located close to good surfing beaches.

Great villa, excellent host

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, comfortable villa with all the comforts of home. Easy walk to beach and pool at the Mariott, but also a very nice pool right outside the backdoor. Host is easy to communicate with and super helpful. Inside a beautiful property with security, very safe and private. Highly recommended. Would stay again.

Relaxation at its finest!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends had a wonderful time in Hacienda Pinilla. Elisabet was great to work with from the start and was very responsive. Both Maria's were very helpful too as far as excursion recommendations and attentive to our needs while we were there.

The villa itself is very spacious and well appointed. We had 4 adults and 3 kids, 11,8, and 6 and they loved being able to run out to the pool in the back and even go for night swims. We horseback rode on property and did daily excursions including zip line, BBQ at Black Stallion, Surf Lessons at the beach club, and a catamaran ride as well which included snorkeling and lunch. The access to the Marriott worked well also as some nights we would just walk over there for dinner after a long day of activities. You definitely need a car here. We actually arranged a shuttle from Liberia and then picked up our car at the Marriott through Avis- that worked out well.

We will certainly be back and appreciated the time we spent at Hacienda Pinilla to truly check out! My kids rated the vacation a "10+++" which tells me this was a huge success!

Thanks again for our special memories we created! Pura Vida!

Amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

This home has 2 very nice master bedrooms with ensuites, and a 3rd bedroom, also with an ensuite. We had 2 teen boys with us, who alternated sleeping on the red couches in the upstairs family room and out on the 2nd floor balcony on the hammock and lounge chairs. We enjoyed our pool which was perfect and so close... virtually right out our patio door. We also had lunch at the JW Marriott one day, and played in their pool. The beach is a quick 5 min walk. The entire property is amazing, and we went for trail rides twice right on the property. Super friendly guides took us through the many trails in the forest, and finished up on the beach. The horses were calm and easy to ride.

Perfect Location - Extremely Comfortable - Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week long stay at this villa with another family. We were able to fit all 9 of us (4 adults + 5 kids) comfortably. The kids slept in the upstairs bedroom with the twin beds. We tucked the air mattress between the beds and they had a blast... every night was a sleep over with their friends. Our oldest slept on the upstairs couch. She wanted to sleep in the hammock on the upstairs porch, but we wouldn't let her... perhaps next time.

The location of the villa is perfect. We liked being close to the pool there was no need to "pack" anything. Some mornings the kids were swimming before breakfast. There's so much to do on the grounds at Pinilla that you almost feel like you don't have to leave. We enjoyed spending mornings on the back porch listening to the sounds of the birds. In the evenings, the upstairs deck was perfect for watching the thunderstorms in the distance or just listening to the rain fall on the trees - so peaceful.

Every day was an adventure here - the kids haven't stopped talking about wanting to go back. We'll definitely stay here again!
