An incredible hotel! Felt like being on a very private beach. Beautiful views. Restaurant food was excellent. The entire staff at the hotel was wonderful. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else the next time I visit Costa Rica!

We got a good price on the room from Groupon, as it was shoulder season and the hotel was not yet full. We were in Casita #2. The hotel grounds and room were absolutely gorgeous, and filled with artwork. We had a good view of the beach and ocean. There are two pools, but we preferred to hang out on...

Sometimes you really have to take a leap of faith when booking a hotel in another country. Sometimes that leap ends up not being so great and sometimes, you hit the jackpot. We hit the jackpot with Alma. During our 5 night stay, Alma delivered 110%. The staff, the grounds, the restaurant...all wonderful. We stayed in a deluxe beachfront villa...

Our first trip to Costa Rica and Alma made it wonderful! The villas with the open concept and windows all around....Excellent! Felt like we were waking up on the beach everyday and showering outside (we weren't so don't worry about any mosquito bites back there...lol). The staff is accommodating and ever so nice. From the time you check in, all...

Boutique hotel with colorful, spacious rooms. Most overlook huge beach with great landscaping. Excellent restaurant with attentive staff. Location is isolated so car is required. About 45 minutes to Quepos and Manuel Antonio. Nice lap pool. Surfing beach with strong riptides so use caution. Great beach for long walks. Rooms were perfect. Clean, comfortable, great wifi, fridge and huge bathroom.

We were instantly amazed with the service, which included a welcome drink and a tour of the facilities. Our garden bungalow was beautiful, private and very romantic. The grounds are beautiful and Alma del Pacifica is located on a beautiful, sandy beach. You have many choices during your down time; you can soak in the sun or lounge in the...
