A Beautiful, special property, with a gorgeous spa and even more gracious, helpful staff! The service was outstanding, the grounds were unbelievable..a perfect oasis situated between several major attraction within about a half hour (national parks, mangroves, waterfalls, zip lines, surfing).

I attended a wedding with my daughter and everything was amazing at the Alma. Our room on the Pacific and listening to the surf at night was so soothing, along with the beautiful landscaping, spacious rooms (so private), private pool, very nice spa and services and pools. The open air dining with ocean views and yummy food and nice drink menu added to the friendly staff and service. Breakfast was included and all our meals, including the wedding appetizers and meal was fantastic. The resort is private and quiet yet close to adventures such as white water rafting and Manuel Antonio Park. This was an awesome place for a smaller venue like Gabe & Nissa's wedding as it was just the wedding party at the resort which made it even more special!

Room Tip: We were in #13 as far away from the restaurant and so very quiet!

Our group came to Costa Rica for a week in paradise for a wedding, and we’re compl blown away by the Alma Del Pacifico. The rooms are stunning, unique, and equipped with everything you’d need to stay a few days or a few months. You will fall in love with the artistry and bright colors of the resort. The landscaping is immaculate with an amazing crew of friendly groundskeepers. Many of the villas have their own plunge pools looking directly out to the ocean. The staff was just unbelievable in their attention to detail and clear pride in their work. Nothing here is “basic”. The breakfast is an amazing way to kickstart your day of adventures. We did surf lessons, horseback rides on the beach, boogie boarding, swimming and spa treatments steps from our room. Evelyn in reservations will be your “go-to” for everything, and her dazzling smile and kind demeanor will bring even more sunshine to your trip! The Alma is perfectly situated close to sights (Manuel Antonio, Jaco are just a quick drive) but is private and quiet so that you feel like you have landed on your own private island. If you are a “foodie”, the food here will not disappoint. All 32 people in our group had rave reviews about every meal we ate. Freddy and the staff were charming and impeccable with their service. For the wedding, they were dazzling with their details and perfect execution. Katherine made sure the flowers and tablescapes were breathtaking, and every brides dream come true. Fernando will honor your day with his touching officiating. I could go on and on, but you need to see this pristine slice of paradise for yourselves. You will fall in love as much as we did!

Forever grateful,
Gabe and Nissa Walker

Dear Game and Nissa,

Thank you very much for your words, we are very moved to have been part of such an important event in life but even more so motivating comments about your and your group's experience. Knowing that they have been enchanted by the beautiful nature that we have and with all the adventure activities that can be done in the area is a reward for us.

We hope to celebrate again with all more experiences to remember your whole life.

My bff and I are total hotel snobs. We first stayed here in November 2015 and absolutely feel in LOVE with the hotel and the staff. Everything from the food to the drinks to the staff and the service is always perfect. So perfect that we declared this is the only place we could stay in Costa Rica, so when we decided to go back in May (2018)it was a no brainer as to where we would stay. Our second stay was just as amazing as the first. As we expected, everything was still above par. Upon check in we were greeted by the super friendly staff and delicious drinks. Check-in was super quick and easy. They even escort you to your room to make sure everything is perfect. Just as we did in 2015, we stayed in Beachfront villa which has an amazing view of the ocean which is literally only 100 yards away from the room. The room decor is very bright and vibrant and we loved waking up to the ocean due to the huge sliding glass windows in the rooms. We did a lot of activities but the room was cleaned every day. There was even a different animal made from towels and fresh flowers on the bed every day when we returned from our adventures. This is a boutique hotel with only 20 or so rooms so it is never crowded and makes the service so much more personable. All of the staff were amazing. Super friendly and did whatever they could to make our trip that much more enjoyable. They will even bring your cocktails out to beach where you can relax in one of the many hammocks. The food is also delicious! So much so that we only ate outside of the hotel once out of the 6 days we were there. We tried almost every item off the menu and were very happy with all of our choices - especially the margaritas especial! The property is very safe, well lit and simply gorgeous.I will not stay at another hotel in Costa Rica and highly recommend staying at Alma del Pacifico on your visit to Costa Rica. We are already planning our next trip back!

Room Tip: Make sure you book a beach front room....you won't regret it :)

We first stayed here in November 2015 and the hotel was amazing, everything from the food to the staff and service. We loved it so much that this is the only hotel we wanted to stay at when we visited Costa Rica again in May 2018. As we expected, everything was still above par. Upon check in we were greeted with delicious, cold refreshing drinks which were much needed because of the sun and heat. Check-in was a breeze and afterwards we were shown to our villa. In 2015 we had the Deluxe Beachfront Villa and in 2018 we had the Beachfront villa. Both were amazing and we loved the vibrant colors, open shower concept, stained glass windows. This is a boutique hotel so is never overly crowded with a million people. This makes the service much better! You get to know the staff and vice versa. Everyone is so accommodating. The food is also delicious! I think between the two of us, we tried most of the menu and were very happy with all of our choices - including the margaritas and other drinks we ordered...which were a lot! Since the hotel practically has a private beach, you can always get a hammock and there is beach service as well. We did a lot of activities but the room was cleaned every day and each day, there was an animal made from a towel and fresh flowers around it on the bed. On our last night, we met one of the owners, Fernando and he was amazing as well and made our last night very fun and even included the staff. It felt like a close knit operation. I will not stay at another hotel in Costa Rica and highly recommend staying at Alma del Pacifico on your visit to Costa Rica. I'll be back for sure!

Room Tip: Amazing service, food and beach! Winning all the way around!
