We just returned from our 5 night stay at Alma. I can tell you that this place is truly where nature meets art and human creativity. We stayed in ocean view villa, and it was most amazing experience. You get your own private entry, the view from the porch was picture perfect. In addition we enjoyed butterflies, hummingbirds, iguanas, and... More

Our 4 nights at Alma were fantastic. The hotel is beautiful, serene, and staffed by friendly people. Our room was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. I loved the outdoor shower after swimming in the ocean and.or pool. The food at the restaurant was delicious and the waiters & waitress were friendly and attentive.

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Alma del Pacifico Beach Hotel & Spa. The front office staff Carmen and Ricky were very helpful. We stayed in a colorful, spacious and beautifully designed beach front Deluxe Villa, where we had our own personal pool. The indoor outdoor shower was our favorite. The hotel grounds are immaculate, colorful and picture perfect. This... More

We had a great time at Alma del Pacifico. A very nice place. The staff is great. On-site restaurant is excellent! Views of the ocean from their beach, dining are impressive. Loved the well kept and diverse plants all through the garden areas. We stayed in one of the garden bungalows and really liked our space. I can only imagine... More

My husband and I purchased a deal for a garden bungalow at Alma del Pacifico through Rue La La. It was the perfect place for a relaxing baby moon. Traveling from the airport, it is about a 1.5-2 hour drive. We chose to rent a car and really enjoyed the scenic drive through the country before making our way out... More

Alma is a perfect place to relax and escape from work, close to San Jose, with all services available. Two pools with fresh but not freezing water. Bungalows are fully equipped, the beach is huge, just steps away from the hotel. Never crowded, and the attention / service invite you to stay. I'd definitely recommend my friends and family to...

Hi there! We are so glad you had a great stay at Alma. We have a great property that's not too far from the San Jose airport, and it is the perfect secluded destination. Close enough to all the major tourist attractions, but without all the hustle and bustle of the over-crowded vacation spots. We would love to host your... More

We're glad you had a great trip ! Having a rental car ( with GPS ) is a great idea so you can get to Manuel Antonio for the national park and also up to Jaco beach. Either direction you are 20 to 30 minutes to literally dozens of restaurants, two great marinas, golf and shopping. When you reserve a... More

Having never been to Costa Rica, but having heard amazing things we were quite excited to go. I actually found a Groupon for this hotel and was so thankful for it alerting us to the property. Upon arrival check-in was not just easy but it was friendly and helpful. At first they put us in a room with two double... More

People were really nice. Food was great. Spa was so relaxing. Great setting to relax. They tried to over hard for surfboards.... But I got that right up the road instead for much cheaper and better quality. Other than that very helpful and fun!

I have always meant to leave a review for Alma del Pacifico. We have stayed here a couple of times for a special treat. Absolutely beautiful beach hotel. Beauty surrounds you at Alma del Pacifico: the happy colors, the manicured, living hallways- no walls, just beautiful, amazing gardens, the incredible architecture and the palm-lined beach. A feast of colors and... More
