We have been to Los Almendros many times, although always staying in different units. This time we had twelve people, many there for their first time, spread over three units. Right on the beach, laid-back atmosphere, very efficient administration of this complex. Nice pools, good diving opportunities, close to Coco Beach. Good value.

We stayed at Los Almendros (Condo 42) in Playa Ocotal, Costa Rica for 3 weeks in January, 2015. My husband and I could not have been happier. Our condo was extremely well equipped, even provided a cell phone for use within Costa Rica and GPS for travel when we rented a car. The view from our balcony overlooked the ocean.... More

We spent a week in Ocotal diving with Rocket Frog as a family of 4 including two teenagers. Our apartment was simple but adequate. Great location up on the hill overlooking the beach and bay. The kitchen was equipped fine for the modest amount of cooking we did. Father Rooster restaurant was just a short little walk away, and served... More

Stefani and her colleagues took good care of us and helped organize massages, maid service, tacxis etc. no real need to rent a car as much... More

Absolutely fabulous experience! We initially booked just the lock-out portion of a full unit, without a kitchen and without a view, which I don't recommend. The next morning we went to the office and asked if they had any ocean views available. They showed us Units 35 & 37. They were both great, but Unit 37 was stunning -- exceptional... More

Jan. 2014 to Mar. 16th was our last visit at Los Almendros. This was our 5th trip to this complex. As usual, we were welcomed with open arms to our "New Family", the employees of Los Almendros. All of the employees are just wonderful, very friendly and very hard working. The gardens, grounds and pools are cleaned every day. All... More

We stayed in Villa #1 which is a three bedroom Villa right on the beach with a jacuzzi. Right next door to the fantastic rocket frog divers. Villa great size and private. Air conditioning poor in front room and that's only place to get wi fi which is just horrid. There one second gone next. Front room got over 90... More

We stayed in a 2 bdrm beachfront in December and you can't beat the location! It was so nice to grab a coffee and go for an early morning beach walk waiting for the teens to wake up, or a quick walk to the tidal pools at low tide. We drove by other places we looked at, and while many... More

If you want a peaceful, quiet getaway in a beautiful location-this is the place to go. We just returned from spending the month of February at this idyllic resort and I can't say enough about the location, the staff who work there, and the weather. Can you imagine 35 Celsius every day without a cloud in the sky! Stefani (who... More

Superb location on a quiet beach. All units are close to the beach and have great views. The staff are very friendly and very accommodating. The condo units are spacious and have most amenities, some do not have washer and dryer. Pools are excellent and the weather in March is sunny and hot (35 Celsius) EVERY day!
