We have stayed at ADP 5 or more times and each time we enjoy ourselves completely. The setting within 100 feet of the beach from your patio, the beautiful & luxurious accommodations, the excellent restaurant and the friendliness and efficiency of the staff all contribute to our enjoyment. We usually come to ADP after several hiking excursions to several of... More

We love Alma & go 1-2 times per year. It's a very special place, beautiful views. Definitely opt for the villas that face the sea as back rooms are darker and less well-maintained. Well worth a visit!

Very nice location on a beautiful beach especially good for bodysurfing and walking (long long beach) ! The villas are spacious with all the comfort and staff was very nice, friendly. and helpful. Very quiet and not crowded even when the hotel is full, this is a very good address to feel "alone" in a crowded area. Well just one... More

This is a secluded resort, beautiful flowers in courtyards and walkways, spacious and well decorated rooms with a fantastic view of the Pacific. Our room had great amenities including a plunge pool overlooking the ocean. The restaurant's food was wonderful (and we're from a food service background), in fact our five days wasn't long enough to try everything. Service was... More

My husband and I were invited to a wedding at the hotel on the beach. It was beautiful! We checked in a day before and were able to appreciate the gorgeous beach, wonderful food and friendly staff.Each cabana is by itself, so you needn't fret about "neighbor noise". EVERYTHING we ate was delicious, including the dinner at the wedding reception,... More

There are so many good things I could say about this great place. But I'll summarize by saying that it really has everything you would hope for and desire in a vacation. The people who work there provide great service which feels more like hospitality then service. Great combination of privacy with opportunity to speak to and connect with others... More

We only stayed here for one night but had a great experience. The AC in the first room we were brought to wasn't working very well so we were upgraded to an ocean front room which was absolutely gorgeous. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel restaurant and the view and food were fantastic. The beach was nice and... More

This hotel was perfect in every way. The room/bungalow was very large and well equipped, and very very clean! We thought the food was good, although our steak was a little below par. The included breakfast was quite good. The staff is terrific, and make excursions very easy. We rented horses that were delivered right to the hotel. Prepaid for... More

The rooms are comfortable, very colourful and with direct access to the beautiful sandy beach over a grass and palm treed strip . The hotel has a good restaurant with a la carter menu and excellent service . The hotel benefits from a pleasant little shop and excellent large swimming pools set in well maintained gardens.

After four days in Monteverde we thought we would continue the rugged pace of adventure and exploration, but once we got to the Alma del Pacifico, we stopped dead in our tracks. It was a wonderful resort right on the Pacific Ocean, with wide beaches, beautiful grounds, and some of the best food in Costa Rica.
