Costa Rica’s Hacienda Pinilla Selects New Management Team

Guanacaste, Costa Rica  - Costa Rica’s premier vacation beach resort and residential community, Hacienda Pinilla, has named Palms International as its exclusive agency for all marketing and sales, and also renewed its working relationship with Cindy Bower, CHA, President & CEO  of Calibre Management Inc., who will assist with property management and owner/guest services. Hacienda Pinilla is a 4,500-acre resort development in the Guanacaste area of Costa Rica, offering a selection of luxury residential properties complemented by a host of world-class amenities.

Palms International, which specializes in resort sales and marketing for destination properties throughout Central America and the Caribbean, has been the force for growth and revitalization behind similar real estate and resort development projects in Costa Rica, Belize, Mexico and the Caribbean. This new sales and marketing relationship marks another step forward in Hacienda Pinilla’s efforts to solidify its position as the leading vacation and second home destination in Costa Rica, as well as continuing its goal of creating sustainable growth.

“Our company has always been keenly aware of the success of Hacienda Pinilla, but also its potential to become a truly recognized world-class destination community,” said Mark Peterson, president and CEO of Palms International (http://www.palmsintlrealestatecostarica.com), who will oversee the sales and marketing transition at the project. “We are honored to have been chosen to lead the growth efforts at Hacienda Pinilla.”

Ms. Bower, President & CEO of Calibre Management Inc., previously worked with Hacienda Pinilla in 2006-2007, and returns to the property as a senior consultant working directly with Bree McClure Pattillo, president of Hacienda Pinilla. In that capacity, she will provide a range of management and advisory services related to property management, and guest and owner services.

“I fell in love with Hacienda Pinilla when I worked here several years ago,” Ms. Bower said. “I truly look forward to again working with Ms. Pattillo and her very capable staff.”

Ms. Pattillo cited Palms International’s hands-on approach and commitment to generating results as key factors in the new partnership. She also stressed the value of Ms. Bower’s knowledge of Hacienda Pinilla and her extensive experience in the management of high-quality resorts. “We are excited about working with Cindy and Mark as we continue with our long-term commitment to the project,” she said.

The exclusive community offers some of the most sought-after real estate in Costa Rica, with a variety of luxury residential properties available, including homes, villas and condominiums. Hacienda Pinilla’s residents and guests enjoy three miles of unspoiled Pacific coastline encompassing three of Costa Rica’s finest beaches. A championship golf course, the renowned La Posada Inn and the only JW Marriott in Costa Rica heighten the resort experience, along with a range of recreational activities and amenities.

The development’s commitment to conserving the natural beauty and integrity of the property that makes up Hacienda Pinilla is maintained through the establishment of a wildlife habitat preservation program, and by enforcing architectural controls and high quality construction standards.

Costa Rica’s current growth as a destination market and its advantageous investment environment lend itself to Palms International’s proven strategy of identifying the finest resort destination properties and real estate opportunities. Through enhanced marketing, public relations and promotions, the team at Palms International will support the continued growth of Hacienda Pinilla, and expand its recognition as Costa Rica’s finest and most sustainable destination community. The efforts of Ms. Bower and Calibre Management Inc. will focus on enhancing property management within the resort, drawing upon extensive experience with international resorts and hotels. Special attention also will be given to providing both property owners and resort guests with the highest quality of service and attention to details.
