This was a very nice spot on the beach with very spacious home or condo like units. We traveled with an 8 and 11 year old and the unit was spacious, artistic, well designed and very relaxing. We also had a jacuzzi pool outside our large glass doors overlooking the ocean so this was very sweet. They also have a great spa and facility considering they only have a limited number of units and the overall facility is on the smaller side. Great wifi and computer and phone coverage so that is a big plus if you need that. There are swimming pools, hammocks and a very good restaurant also. We did find the restaurant to have a great menu and very nice but it could be a tad bit slow...maybe it was because we had small children we noticed the delay more. The was also one of the more expensive locations that we stayed but I guess you are paying more to have the smaller more exclusive atmosphere. The only other drawback was I found this as kind of an oasis in the middle of more run down homes and locations. I was surprised by some of the surrounding cities and how Manuel Antonio was more dense and not very luxury resort like. Alma del Pacifico was definitely the high end exception in this area. I would recommend but is expensive.
