Truly a tranquil setting amongst the tree tops overlooking the ocean. Mornings spent gazing out at the beautiful variety of birds plentiful in this little peace of heaven. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The hosts are gracious and caring. They offered help when needed and direction in choices. The food always special under Russells direction.Loved it and hope... More

Russell and Scott are gracious hosts. The hotel is what everyone says! The rooms are small, but who spends time in doors anyway? Do not hesitate to visit the guys and become one of the family! Also, Russell is an amazing chef! We ate both nights we were there at El Castillo, their other place, and were so very impressed... More

We've enjoyed our stay in room no. 2 (of only 5) a lot. The huge terrasse with it's beautiful ocean/forrest views was just amazing. The room was big enough and quite stylish, same for the bathroom. From the restaurant you can enjoy the very same views - unspoiled and beautiful, oceanview & lot's of birds. There are a view things,... More

Thank you for a great stay! The only thing we regret is not to have stayed more time. Incredible setting, beautiful views, great breakfast and service from the two American (USA) owners that are very nice and make the place even better. The room with a balcony overlooking the forest full of tropical birds and the ocean in the distance.... More

This belongs to the top three out of the hotel we stayed at in Costa Rica. We are primarily interested in the quiet opportunity to training and we had our own MTB on the trip. We also want it to be peaceful and quiet at the hotel we were staying. Just a few kilometers there are totally unmarked roads down... More

This place is just plain awesome!! Beautiful, clean, private rooms, with elegant style and details. Super comfortable bed, we slept great and woke to stunning views from the private deck of the suite. Fantastic mountain top pool with equally great views, even better in person than the photos can capture. Scott and Russel give a really warm welcome and make... More

Stayed here for 6 nights in February 2014 in a comfortable, large room with overhead fan and air-conditioning. Staff and owners were very friendly, bringing water to you unasked and offering other drinks as well when you were sitting by the lovely pool. Sunsets were beautiful from the bar over the Pacific Ocean. The peace of the hotel is fantastic.... More

Our stay at Alma was nothing short of breathtaking. Our room and sizeable balcony faced west, so every night we were treated to sunset over the Pacific. Wine by the pool, coffee and a delicious breakfast each morning, and foodie-approved dinners at the Alma's sister property, El Castillo, made this an incredible vacation. Scott and Russell were amazing hosts, and... More

Alma is a very relaxing and beautiful place to stay while in Costa Rica. Scott and Russell will do everything they can to ensure your stay with them is amazing. Be sure to relax poolside while you are there.

Russell and Scott are amazing hosts. They make you feel pampered and comfortable. Even before we got there, Scott was amazingly helpful in planning our time. Each day they serve a different gourmet breakfast. They arranged for us to go to a beach spot one day and the other day we were in town, we went canoeing with Uvita360 (also... More
