Great House In Hacienda Pinilla

  • 5 of 5

The house is great for multiple families to share. Great pool and great location. Playa Avellanas and Negra to the south and Tamarindo to the north. Federico and Tatiana are very helpful with any questions or arrangements that are needed. Fourth year staying in this house for our Costa Rica vacation and already booked for fifth year.

Wonderful house for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our son-in-law the surfer wanted to go on a surfing trip for his birthday, so we all came down to Guanacaste and stayed a week in this lovely Hacienda Pinilla house.

Our party was 6 adults and 2 young children, and there was plenty of room for all.

The bedrooms are private and in two wings at either end of the house.

The kitchen was well-equipped and modern, and we did a lot of our cooking at the outdoor gas grill.

The beautiful swimming pool, cleaned daily, was a highlight, with a shallow end for my 5 yo grand daughter, and long enough to swim laps for the rest of us.

We enjoyed access to the Hacienda Pinilla Beach Club, with its lovely free form pool, and convenient restaurant (open mainly for lunch).

These are surfing beaches, meaning that with high wave action they're not usually suitable for swimming and ordinary wave jumping, except occasionally at low tide.

Federico the owner was always gracious and helpful, and gave us excellent restaurant recommendations. Don't miss Villa Deveena, about 20 minutes to the south.

Overall a great place for a relaxing family vacation.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a trip with my girlfriends to this wonderful house, we had the best time! The house was perfect to acommodate all of us (we were 8) very comfortably and still have space for more! The private pool is great to swim, sunbathe and enjoy pool side barbecues. The beaches are very close, Playa Avellanas and Playa Langosta are a dream. Tamarindo (20 min drive) is great for dining out and enjoying the night life. Federico (owner) was extremely helpful with the planning of our trip and helped us find our way around the Hacienda and nearby towns. I would recommend this house to anyone, 5 stars!

Truly outstanding

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 usually travels from Texas to a Mexico all-inclusive resort during Spring Break. We took a chance to do something different (and safer) this year by renting a house near the beach in Costa Rica. Great call.

Flew into Liberia, drove less than an hour to the small fishing/tourist town of Tamarindo, then a little further to Hacienda Pinilla. The property is massive, gated with security, on the Pacific beach and full of high dollar investments in infrastructure. But what really made this place special is the attention of the lovely host couple, Federico and Tatiana Bonilla.

From the time we arrived until the time we left, the Bonillas were remarkable for their understanding of the needs/wants of seasoned vacation travelers. Their recommendations for sights, shopping, restaurants, fun activities, beaches, etc. were most helpful in planning a week-long agenda suitable for a family of 6 with diverse interests.

The house is large and clean, the food is outstanding, the general culture of the area is friendly, the list of fun activities is long and the personal attention from the Bonillas is great.

All of that combined to create a simply outstanding week of Spring Break for my family. Loved it!

Wonderful Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great vacationing experience at Casa Ala Azul. The house is really close to an almost private beach (we were able to enjoy sunsets by ourselves!). The Hacienda is really a great place, all the beaches are beautiful and there are many activities to entertain the whole family. We know that renting is sometimes a difficult process because you don't really know what you are going to find when you get to the place, thankfully we spoke with Federico before making our decision and that phone call really sealed the deal. It was the best decision, we hope we can return soon and we would recommend this property to anyone.

Other Activities: HORSEBACK RIDING

Hacienda Pinilla boasts a beautiful equestrian center (El Establo) with more than 40 horses for the horseback tours or for the rides with buggies. The horseback tour takes place over 6 kilometers of totally natural trails, along rivers, a lake and a nice trot on the beach at Playa Langosta.


Hacienda Pinilla is equipped with a two professional tennis courts. . Both courts are situated in a natural setting, surrounded by native Guanacaste trees.

Golf: An excellent golf course in your own backyard – this is the centerpiece of Hacienda Pinilla’s exclusive environment. This 6,800-meter field is the masterpiece of Mike Young, who has designed some of the best golf courses in the world.

Enjoy 18 holes of championship on this 7,296 yard design set on the Gold Coast of Costa Rica. Fitted for all player types and levels, this golf course will not only test you but will amaze you with it’s beauty. Hacienda Pinilla provides players with a chance to play golf as it was meant to be played, peacefully amongst friends and nature. The golf course was designed to conform to all natural surroundings capturing the feel of a Guanacaste rancho on the ocean.

Accurate iron play is the key to getting around this golf course, but the length will put you to the test. You will find that the greens are very well guarded and are amongst the best in Costa Rica. Here, golfers have a course that offers picturesque scenery, immaculate conditions and frequent glimpses of exotic wildlife.
