As a chilean, always want to see chilean owners restaurants, and say hellow. I did, had a nice bottle of chilean wine, a great stake, and a better conversation with the owners. The menu was great, focus on quality, nice pisco sauer, desserts. Got to go.

Best entree was the pineapple seafood... More

I had two meals at the restaurant and they were both excellent quality, not just another restaurant, but somewhere all the dishes were special. On my first visit I had the fish of the day (Mama Mia), cooked to perfection and the second visit the Thai red chicken curry. On both occasions one of my friends had the Tuna sushi... More

I stayed there for 3 weeks, and I definitely didn't want to go. Beautiful and cosy domos, surrounded of the most amazing nature. In front of the best beach of Sta Teresa. Delicious food, including fresh Tuna and the best and family ambient. I definitely will be back in ALMA.

Alma means Soul and I can say without a doubt that I left mine there! It was no wonder I wanted to go back the minute I left, but no worries, I will return! The hotel we had originally booked had only room for 3 people and we were going to be 4 now that I had decided to meet... More

I spent two weeks at Alma Villa ! Was a perfect place to stay ! Ideal for families or groups like us. Owners are the nicest people in Town and you would enjoy their restaurant as well. Closed to the beach, clean as a 5 stars hotel. The Domo we rented was ideal. Air conditioning, kitchen, double beds, internet.. all... More
