Peace & Tranquility

Posted Dec 3, 2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: A teaspoon with the coffee making facilities
Location: Paradise, with fantastic unspoiled beaches close
If you are looking for a relaxing break look no further Alma is the hotel for you! All rooms with views across tree tops and the ocean behind, watch the sun go down as the forest below comes to life. Take breakfast while macaw's fly through the tree tops and monkeys play beneath. If you enjoy fine dining at reasonable prices you will enjoy the evening meal, served in a fantastic setting at the sister hotel El Castillo only 2 minutes away. All this and some of Costa Rica's finest beaches within easy reach, Close to Paradise!

Fantastic Stay

Posted May 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
Very quant little hotel with a great personality. Although tough to find, it was well worth the trip down south of Dominical. We arrived late from San Jose airport and were greeted promptly by Jose whom turned out to be an awesome host. We were taken to our casita which gave a excellent view of the ocean from our balcony. The pool and lounge area/grounds were well kept and you can tell they pay close attention to detail. The owners were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed to ensure the best stay. By the time it was ready time to leave, I wished we had another week to stay at this hotel. I would definitely go back and recommend this spot to all whom wish to get away for a private adventure. The only downside is it's not that close to any other major tourist spot so your essentially on your own which is not a bad thing!

Petit hôtel avec vue superbe

Posted Mar 31, 2014
Très bien situé pour rayonner sur la cote pacifique sud du Costa Rica. Très calme avec seulement les bruits de la nature.Très bon accueil, personnel très agréable. Vue magnifique sur le pacifique depuis ce promontoire. Il faut par contre un bon véhicule pour grimper jusque la haut. Le restaurant se situe dans l'autre hôtel un peut plus bas, très beau cadre, cuisine de bonne qualité, prix autour de 20 euros par personne. Il n'y a par contre que 5 chambres, il vaut mieux réserver..

Very stylish hotel, extremely friendly staff

Posted Mar 24, 2014 on Hotels.com
I stayed with my wife at this hotel for one night and I loved it. First of all, the manager is wonderful. He goes above and beyond to make your stay very pleasant. The view is beautiful and the swimming pool very tasteful. In general, the architecture and attention to detail are excellent. I only have two small reproaches: the air conditioning in the room was constantly blowing in my face (although it is very quiet), and it is nearly impossible to get up the hill to the entrance without a 4x4.

Very good

Posted Mar 18, 2014
Pros: View, cleaness
Cons: breakfast
Location: There is a lot of good restaurants and tours
We stayed for one night and it was a nice experience. The only thing that we don't like was breakfast because there was no option and very little quatities of food.

Small, boutique hotel overlooking the Pacific.

Posted Mar 10, 2014
Pros: Staying in this small hotel, you felt welcomed and valued. Staff learnt your name quickly and used it.
Cons: It was disappointing that although a restaurant was advertised, it didn't exist at this location. There was one at the sister hotel down the road.
Location: Several beaches in this area and it was possible to reach the Osa Peninsula too within an hour to take a tour.
Stayed here for 6 nights in February 2014 in a comfortable, large room with overhead fan and air-conditioning. Staff and owner were very friendly, bringing water to you unasked and offering other drinks as well when you were sitting by the lovely pool. Sunsets were beautiful from the bar over the Pacific Ocean. Birdlife was spectacular from the gardens and the open air restaurant. Hotel is situated on top of a hill, roughly 1km up a gravelled road which is steep in places, but easily negotiable if you take your time. Food is available at the sister hotel in the evenings, about 600 metres away and there are plenty of restaurants in the surrounding area, the closest being a 15 minute walk. Having the use of a vehicle would be advantageous to explore the area and get to beaches etc. We loved the beach at Pinuela, plenty of shade but it is in the Marine Conservation area with a warden, so there is a small charge until 4pm.

Bedste hotel-oplevelse indtil videre

Posted Mar 4, 2014 on Hotels.com
Vi kan kun anbefale alle at besøge Alma. Hotellets ejere Scott og Russell har skabt en lille perle i den lille by Ojochal. Omgivelserne er lækre, og stemningen er fantastisk. Det ligger på en lille sidevej oppe ad et bjerg. Der er kun fem værelser, hvilket gør, at man føler sig hjemme, og man bliver taget imod som er man et familiemedlemmer, der kommer hjem på ferie. Ejerne og de ansatte lærer dit navn med det samme, og de er opmærksomme og super venlige og hjælpsomme. Der er en lille hyggelig pool og liggestole til. Værelserne har en stor altan med aftensol og en fantastisk solnedgang. Der er ingen restaurant på hotellet, men du får dog morgenmad på en lille åben terrasse med udsigt ud over bjerget og havet i baggrunden. Der ligger en fantastisk restaurant omkring en halv kilometer nede af bjerget, El Castillo, hvor man kan spise en virkelig lækker middag. Der er også et lille supermarked, et fransk bageri og en række andre restauranter/hoteller for foden af bjerget. Det er en fordel at have bil, men hvis man ikke har noget imod en rask gåtur i kuperet terræn, kan det sagtens lade sig gøre. Vi havde tre overnatninger uden bil. Det er som skrevet til at begynde med et sted, alle bør besøge i Costa Rica. Vi vil helt sikkert vende tilbage.
