We booked our stay in a package with Xandari hotel in Alejuala which we have done for many years. Both Xandari and Alma del Pacifico are the feng suie design of architect Sherrill Broudy. The lavish artwork represented throughout both hotels and gardens is the work of his wife and artist, Charlene Broudy. Alma del Pacifico is a Costa Rican work of art located within 100 meters of the Pacific Ocean with miles of open private beach.
Our bungalow featured a large open living room leading to a porch, small private pool and the Pacific Ocean. The bungalow had optional A/C but we found the prevailing sea breeze to be more than adequate. The complete service staff was professional and efficient as all of our wants and needs were promptly cared for with a smile.
The dining was traditional Costa Rican with fresh local fish, vegetables and fruits. The fresh red snapper, Costa Rican style, was exceptional as well as the Chef's special recipes for the fresh tuna. The menu was varied but the native dishes were the best we found in country.
Alma del Pacifico is a hidden jewel, remotely located, beautifully appointed and a pleasure to visit
