Pacifico Resort Preferred 12 Building Overlooking Serene Pool


Property Details

Updated: Oct 22, 2016
Second floor condo with sales model furnishings for executive visitors

Our property manager and your primary contact is a year round resident of Pacifico. Being fluent in English and Spanish his concierge services will assure you have the ideal tropical vacation experience.

Our 3 bedroom condo was a sales model featuring high end Robb & Stucky furnishings and decor. For the first 3 years the condo was used exclusively by the owners during the USA winter months. It's preferred second floor location provides a view of a classic swimming pool used primarily by adults and the impeccably maintained landscape courtyard from the master bedroom/living room deck. Throughout the Pacifico complex there are 3 additional pools including a 25m lap lane, lagoon pool children's zero entry wading pool and Jacuzzi. New to the pool areas is food and drink poolside service.

The open condo floor plan has a large living area perfect for family and friends to gather. Surrounded by large palm trees, the balcony has dual 10 foot koolaroo, full coverage, shades making a private outside haven. The master suite king bed has it's own large flat screen tv. The in suite master bath has two sinks and a large shower. The second and third bedrooms both have a queen bed, generous closet space and separate bathroom with shower. The living room sofa can be folded out to a queen size bed.


Q: Can you suggest a car service to pick us up and drive us back from Liberia airport 17 miles (26 kilometers) away?

A: Taxi service is available the airport to the condo for approximately $50 one way. The taxi stand is in front of Auto Mercado grocery store outside the main gate of property. To hire a taxi walk to the taxi stand and direct the driver to the condo entrance.

Q: Is the condo walking distance to the beach, supermarket and restaurants or should we rent a car for the week?

A: Local activities, bars, restaurants, shopping, beach in Coco are within walking distance or a short inexpensive taxi ride, however to fully experience as much of this beautiful country during your stay you will want to travel outside of Coco. Excursions can be arranged through tour companies if you do not want to rent a car. Driving in Costa Rica is similar to North America however most roads are 2 lane. Rural roads are usually gravel/rock with and somewhat rough. Cars should be rented at the airport upon arrival as there is no car rental agencies in Coco. We suggest including a GPS in your car rental package as Costa Rica does not have a street sign system. Parking at Pacifico and in Coco is free.

Q: You have several washrooms in the condo, is there only one shower?

A: There are two full baths, both with large showers. There are no bathtubs in the condo.

Q: Is Wifi included?

A: Yes, attached is our 'Key's to Condo' that includes the WiFi access code

Q: Are there free gym facilities at the condo?

A: Yes, there is a local gym in the Pacifico Retail shop near the entrance. No, it is not free, however, the owner has provided discounted weekly rates to guests staying at Pacifico.

Q: Do the pools get crowded this time of the year?

A: The pools are rarely "crowded" and there is poolside service from the bar & grill to lounges, chairs and even to condo. There are 4 pools to choose from. Guests at the condo also are authorized to use the Pacifico Beach Club pool for an additional Guest fee paid direct to The Club at time of it's first use. It is located approximately 1.5 miles away and accessible by free shuttle service at designated hours. The Pacifico Beach Club offers 2 small swimming pools, beach access, lounge chairs, cabanas and a full service restaurant.

Q: Can you suggest some zip line, bike rentals, tourist attractions we can book when we arrive?

A: Yes, after receiving your reservation dates and car rental plans. Even after staying in Costa Rica for over 12 months during our 3 years of winter snowbirding there we still have a list of new 'to-do's' on our next visit. Never an idle moment in this country, unless that's what your objective is while enjoying the panoramic environment.

Q: Is there a payment or travel protection plan that you offer?

A: The HomeAway/VRBO travel protection payment for property is made through the “Book It” link on the listing website. They also provide explanation of what is included and not included.

Q: Is all of the money due up front or can we pay in installments?

A: Payment in full is required prior to check-in. Our guests also have the option to pay on-site at time of check in using a major credit card or PayPal. Any on-site payments made direct to owner do not include the travel protection service offered by HomeAway/VRBO.

Q: Do you require a security deposit?

A: Yes, $500, an initial rental deposit, will block out the requested rental dates to assure they are not made available to any other party. Upon receipt of payment of rental payment this rental deposit is held as a security deposit until you've checked out and property inspection is completed.

Q: Does the rent fee include access to Pacifico's Beach Club?

A: Yes, the Beach Club restaurant and bar is open to the general public, but use of the clubs two swimming pools and ocean side lounge area has a separate fee that is paid directly by condo guest(s) to Club at time of first use. The separate fee varies by term of use (either daily, weekly or monthly) and guest age (under 18 are free when accompanied with adult).

Guestbook comments from the manager

Everything was perfect from start to finish. The condo was lovely, clean and well appointed. The Pacfico property was beautiful and the pools a treat. It was nice to be close to the beach and grocery stores. We enjoyed the beach and snorkeling and had a delightful day fishing and had Dolphins entertain us near the boat. There is nothing I can recommend to improve on our stay in your condo. Thank you so much!

This place was perfect for us and our two kids for a week. Well equipped (everything we could need) and centrally located near town, a supermarket, etc. We've already recommended to friends.

Just returned from a 5 week stay at this wonderful condo. We felt right at home as soon as we arrived. Everything you can think of that you might need in the kitchen is there (ice cream scoop, toaster, lots of utensils and dishes, potato peelers, wine opener) the list could go on & on, trust me, if you think you need it, it's there. The coffee maker is very high quality. Being coffee snobs and taking our cup of coffee very seriously, it was very nice to have a great cup of java every morning. The beds were comfy, as were the pillows and bedding. Lots of bath towels and lots of towels for pool use too. The condo has a very comfortable feeling so just unpack, relax and make yourself at home.

We are seasoned Pacifico vacationers and this was our first time staying on the 2nd floor and really enjoyed it. We had a birds eye view and enjoyed sitting on the balcony for breakfast and seeing all the beautiful birds that came to say good morning.

Playa del Coco is a very fun little town. Many restaurants are in very easy walking distance and if it's something a little further away, taxis are always lined up outside the property and are inexpensive. There's a great, clean supermarket (AutoMercado) on the corner of the property as well so shopping is simple and there are a couple of other supermarkets on the main street. There's a fantastic fish market in town that you should take advantage of, but it's always wonderful after a day by one of the 4 pools to go out and have a fabulous fish dinner cooked for you.

Pacifico is always enjoyable and staying at this condo makes it even sweeter. Try it, you'll like it :)

Fantastic Even Though I Never Stayed

  • 5 of 5

Me and two friends had booked this condo for 5 days, we were to leave Houston, but because of car issues, missed our flight. Once at the airport we were told the next available flight was in two days.

I contacted the owner John and he was fantastic. We had booked a couple days before leaving and I was positive they were going to ding us pretty good for cancelling the day of. Nope, Thursday is when I cancelled and by Monday. while still in Coco, my credit card was refunded both the deposit and the 5 day rental fee.

The really sad thing is we ended up in Coco, but because we were unsure that we could find a ride from San Jose($150 cab at 2am when out flight arrived to CR) I could not take John up on his offer to change the reservation. We arrived on a Sunday and the office was closed so we ended up paying more because we had to get two hotel rooms and getting much less because the hotel, was a hotel, with hotel amenities. I believe if I had emailed John would have set it up, but we were basically homeless at 6am on Sunday when the cab dropped us off in Coco and decided that we had put John through enough and just went with a hotel so we start our vacation.

I could not have had a better experience with a place I never stayed at. We took our golf cart rental to the Pacifico property and the Beach Club, the pictures, at least on the outside ones, are an accurate reflection of the properties. Both are beautiful.

I feel a bit guilty in that they didn't charge us anything for all the hassle we had put them through because we did not make our flight. Remarkable really. I should note that I don't believe we would have received a full refund had the reservation not been made last minute. I think, but do not know, had they felt that they could have rented to another party, there would have been a sizable fee. I remember something about the various fees in the rental agreement I signed.

One other note, I think check in was at 3pm, but I had contacted John and because the property was empty, he contacted the building management to arrange a noon check in, the time we were originally scheduled to arrive on Coco.

If we go to Coco again, I will go out of my way to get this specific unit because of the customer service and how professional and courteous John was.

Owner's Response: It's always reassuring to hear our guests continue to experience the joy's the Pacifico resort has to offer at this tropical get-a-way from the hustle and anxiety visitors are trying to replace with Costa Rica's Pura Vida life style.

Pacifico Resort is a very well kept property. Our unit was clean and well maintained. At the Pacifico Beach Club food and drinks are excellent. I highly recommend this property to anyone planning to go to Costa Rica and planning to stay in this area. It is a much better choice and less expensive than staying in an all inclusive hotel. There is a supermarket (very similar to any supermarket in the US) within walking distance from the property. Villa Italia is the best restaurant by far in this town, it is on a dirt road off main street. If you are looking for a white sand beach, Coco is not the best, the sand is very dark. Flamingo beach a drive away has a beautiful beach and white sand. It is safe to drive around. The roads are not the best but it is safe. If you rent a car, get a GPS.

Owner's Response: Thanks Daniel for your highlighting some of the attributes that make Costa Rica an adventure, more than just a tropical destination. Unlike in North America and Europe where it is taken for granted streets will be well marked and conveniently using our smart phone map's App will easily get us anywhere by car, in Costa Rica the few street signs that there are can't be relied on as being accurate and GPS's containing Costa Rica specific road and town landmarks have proven to be much more reliable than smart phone Map App's. The local volcanic lava generated black sand remind's us of the similar picturesque beach's at Tenerife, Canary Islands and Kona, Hawaii.
