As an owner of properties in Pacifico I am very disappointed in the Pacifico beach club.

Food: the food is not very good and it is way overpriced. As an owner I am required to spend $600/year here on food and drinks and it is just not worth it even after the 10 % owners discount.

Service: for a place that has a large wait staff service is generally slow. If you are sitting out by the pool an hour or more can go by before you can flag a waiter down.

Liquor: definitely overpriced. For example if you buy a 1 liter bottle of flor de Cana 7 yr rum from the beach club to take home they charge $80/bottle less 10% owners discount comes to. $72/bottle. The same bottle at auto Mercado runs $26/bottle.
And even less at the liquor store in town.

Music: not lively and often turned way down or off. Some of the speakers there do not work so well either so you have to choose carefully where you sit.

Shade: almost non existent unless you sit inside of a hot tent.

Sunsets: are beautiful and once a week on Friday nights there is live music for 2 hours which is good but again you are stuck with overpriced drinks and mediocre at best overpriced food.

We choose to avoid the beach club as much as possible. Way more fun at
Father Roosters in ocotal, Coco Nuts, Hotel Coco Palms, El Ankla, etc in coco

This is a lovely place, definitely styled for the mid to higher end crowd. The clubhouse sandwich was amazing with full size chicken breast, avocado, bacon and all the Fixins. We also enjoyed the Thai flatbread with a unique combo of shrimp, avocado, pineapple and sweet chilli sauce.
The view to the ocean is unobstructed and a wonderful vista to look at over lunch.
As expected from the calibre of the Pacifico club, the banjos were the best so far on our vacation!

Vanishing edge pool is nice overlooking the beach but service is slow outside getting food and drinks.
I get frustrated and go inside myself to find a waiter or call the front desk and ask them to send a waiter out.

Food and drinks are expensive with small proportions and you can see people bringing their own food and drinks in all the time to avoid having to pay the high prices. Menu rarely changes and food gets boring. As an owner it is frustrating to watch and waiters never seem to notice. People bringing their own food

Lately I have just been buying bottles of alcohol there to cover my annual required spending but mark up on the bottles is also very high v what you could get it for at the liquor store in town.

Music is also lame and we prefer to go to father roosters which has better food service and music
