We loved everything about our stay. The room and beach were beautiful. The staff was extremely helpful. The restaurant meals were delicious. In addition, the villas are conveniently located between Jaco and Manuel Antonio, so we were able to balance plenty of private time on the beach with a whole host of activities nearby.

I lead a group of 22 Senior Citizen (Southern Belles from Alabama) to Costa Rica. Our first hotel was at this beautiful seaside escape named "Alma Del Pacifico & Spa".

The hotel is on a beautiful beach with stunning grounds and well kept plants and flowers. Each "villa" is a room and the ocean view is amazing. The rooms are very spacious with beautiful tiled showers and big bathrooms. However the hotel has an air of cheapness which could perhaps be explained by the fact it is low season, or... More

This place is amazing. Beautiful can not begin to describe it. Deserted beach almost. Not much around the hotel which makes it even more wonderful. Nice pools and good restaurant. Plenty of shells to collect on the beach. Loved our stay. Most activities are either in Jaco or Quepas which are about a 30 minute drive. I would recommend having... More
