Beach Club

There are many ways to enjoy the comfort, spectacular architecture, and natural beauty of Hacienda Pinilla's Beach Club. You could spend the day hopping between the pool and the beach, enjoying tasty snacks like hamburgers, fish sticks, salads, fresh fruit drinks and delicious cocktails. Or you could play volleyball, walk the coastline, go surfing, and try a variety of aquatic sports. If you're in search of pampering, call ahead to reserve a visit to our Spa, where you can indulge in a facial or a relaxing massage – or both! Best of all, you'll enjoy all of these amenities in a picture-perfect location: a beach known as Avellanas, although surfers like to call it Little Hawaii.

At the Beach Club Restaurant, all the dishes on our menu are homemade and crafted onsite from only the freshest ingredients. Thanks to its ideal location beachfront and beneath the blue sky of Guanacaste, our restaurant is the perfect place to celebrate an anniversary, host a family reunion, or get together with friends. Another possibility is to plan business meetings or seminars at our Mandarina Lounge or the Beach Club Conference Room, the region's two best options for business negotiations. No matter what, the tranquility and comfort that our location offers will guarantee the best conditions for your event.

We offer two dining options: one formal and another more informal. The Rancho Las Palmas Grill is ideal for guests who want to spend time by the pool or beachfront, and who prefer an informal dining environment. We even offer a special children's grill menu. For a more traditional dining experience, visit Avellanas Restaurant to enjoy pre-dinner cocktails, a full course meal, dessert, fruit smoothies, and a variety of after-dinner drinks. During the summer season, the Beach Club also offers outdoor seating in its gardens – the ideal option for special events, including weddings.

Around the pool, parents will find areas to relax in the shade while supervising their children. Additionally, our Wellness Center has two treatment rooms, where you can enjoy massages, facials, manicures and pedicures, and exfoliation treatments, among other indulgences. You can also reserve a Spa Party, which was created especially for groups. During this event, we offer simultaneous treatments and catering services. This is ideal for wedding parties, girlfriend getaways, and family groups.

This property is located near Playa Avellanas. A collection of left and right beach breaks and reef breaks. The surf breaks range from Little Hawaii at the north end of the beach to a fun left at the south end. Low tide can get really reefy, medium or high tide is your best bet. Playa Avellanas is long (and beautiful) beach, so spread out and find a peak away from the crowd.

This property is also located near Playa Negra. One of the breaks featured in Endless Summer 2. This is one of the Costa Rica's best spots. A rocky reef right-hand break, Playa Negra is fast, hollow and can hold some size. It's tends to be bigger than the other spots around here. Fast waves, rocky bottom, juicy barrels, and ripping locals make this a great break, but not for the beginner.

This property is also located near Langosta. A rivermouth break with a left and a right. A medium tide is best. Great beach breaks on the south side if the rivermouth as well.
