What a run down s**t hole. I can't believe they charge $145 per night. There is zero privacy in the bathroom, literally no door just a curtain that closes. Let me just go ahead and list the issues we found: There was a rat in the cabin. The ceiling fan is so gross and rusted, that it can fall off... More

First of all I have lived in costa Rica for 4 years, I travel all over the country many times over. I like nice things, this place looks nice in the pics... When you get there everything is run down!! Mold and slimy walkways with no lights after 12am to laminate the way to your room. The room it self... More

We stayed here as a 'treat' during our 3 week holiday in CR. Please don't waste your money. It's crap. We complained on check out and asked to speak to the manager about a partial refund because the receptionist was not able to authorise it and as the $145 price tag for the room was ridiculous once we realised how...

My wife and I booked this hotel for our honeymoon stay on the Caribbean. It was the worst decision of our trip. The idea of this place is good, but the execution is disastrous. The rooms are not as good as they appear in the website photos, by a long shot. Beds are too firm. Bathroom is nothing special. We... More

Maybe good in high season, but not the off season... We came here because we thought it was one of the best options in town. The room was nice, even thought it is kind of a tent with low privacy. You really feel in the middle of the jungle, you can hear the monkeys and other animals from 4:30 am,... More

We just returned from Costa Rica, and I can't say enough about the wonderful people that we met there. Almonds and Corals was amazing. We didn't lodge there, but did take part in the Zip Lines and the Bar - we also spent the day on the beach looking for great rocks and shells. The Staff were amazing - the... More

Had my wedding here earlier this month, needless to say my wedding was magical and wonderful, no thanks to the owner. The owner is RUDE, A BULLY, and has no business skills. She does not know ho to talk to people. Before you have you wedding here be careful when dealing with the owner. With weddings you want your day... More

Almonds and corals rooms are exactly how they look on the website. The rooms are beautiful. Absolutely a comfortable place to stay in the selva. You feel like your in a community and yet, your own private rainforest. The rain makes everything so green and vibrant. There are colorful animals: crabs, snakes, frogs, birds. What makes almonds and corals so... More

For our honeymoon, we stayed both here and Arenal Nayara, a luxury resort by the volcano. Almonds was the most amazing experience I've ever had! After staying here, I couldn't stand the other resort. I'm not sure where all these one star reviewers stayed because this place was truly incredible! You have to know where you're going though. You cannot... More
