No request is beyond reason. We can help arrange everything from transportation (including LIR and SJO airport transfers), babysitting/childcare, guides and excursions, to massages in the villa, special dinner reservations, tennis lessons, golf lessons and rental golf carts and more. We are here to ensure this is the most memorable vacation of your life.

The Resort

Hacienda Pinilla is Costa Rica's premier beach resort community. It offers all of the luxury and amenities you want, while keeping the landscape and atmosphere true to Costa Rica's Guanacaste region. 

You have access (free with a stay at our villa - closed October) to the Beach Club, golf course, tennis courts, 12 bars and restaurants, 3 different beaches, miles of mountain biking trails, 2 spas, gym, equestrian center, chapel, mini market and more, all within Hacienda Pinilla’s gated 4,600 acres.


You can rent a car or a golf cart to get around within Hacienda Pinilla. 
We have three 4-person golf carts available for rent, for use within the resort (recommended as a fun way to get around the resort and see more wildlife). We can help arrange tours for you to nearby activities and adventures, with door-to-door service. We have used the same bilingual drivers, guides and naturalists for the past 7 years. We trust them and they will treat you like family and make sure you have a great time!

Getting around

We have guests who don't rent a car for their stay, and instead rent golf carts to get around the resort (a great way to see wildlife, we have three 4-person carts available for rent!), including the 3 beaches, Beach Club, golf course and 12 bars and restaurants. They spend a lot of their stay here, inside Pinilla, and are able to take excursions when they'd like, and are picked up and dropped off at the villa as part of the tour. Others prefer the freedom and adventure of renting their own car for getting around the area, and to and from the airport. We are happy to help arrange car rental for all guests as well.

Interaction with guest

We offer you the most personalized 24/7 concierge service -- even before you arrive -- to help you with everything you need, from arranging meals to be cooked in the villa, to tours, must-see spots, restaurant and activity recommendations, and more.


This rental can only be paid for online through Holiday Lettings using your credit/debit card or PayPal (never by bank or wire transfer).
