The Alma is certainly an extraordinary place. It's brightly painted colors, contrasting with wonderful tropical plantings, show a lot of design thought was put into the place by the original builder/owners. It gives guests a truly unique feeling. Every guest villa has a private courtyard and outdoor shower. The hotel is located on a very long stretch of beach, and while the pools are very pleasant, the surf often does not look inviting. There are cross currents directly in front of the hotel, and guests are advised to go into the surf only on incoming tides. I am a good swimmer, but did not go into the surf very far, as I did not see others in the waves. Walking along the dark grey sand is very pleasant. The restaurant is very good, and service is unusually swift.
