The hotel have a good location if you want to visit Peninsula de Nicoya. There is a restaurant inside the hotel with great food. The staff is very friendly. We received an upgrade of our room for free. The bed was very comfortable. Sorry, that was the only picture that I took from the hotel

I really liked this place. While not super luxury, it's a great spot and well-priced. Alkamar is located 2 km from the airport and next to the Budget rent a car: it's clean, friendly and well-run. In fact, I found it to be immaculate—one of the most spotless and best maintained hotels anywhere. The young man on the front desk also speaks perfect English as well and the wifi is solid too. The only challenges are the road noise, as it’s on a bend in the main road around the bay, not to mention a nearby farm rooster and various other sounds which come from the jungle at night (which are many and varied, such as dog-like sounds I’m told are monkeys – to hoots and squeals). If you locate in the second building towards the back, there’s less road noise and more jungle/rooster; and, if at the front, probably vice-versa. The in-house restaurant also does a solid breakfast and there’s another hotel across the road with a good restaurant and bar. This is an excellent starting point if you’re looking to explore the southern end of the Nicoya Peninsula. The key places such as Montezuma are about 1-2 hours away. You’ll need a 4x4 to go to many of them, as the roads are only paved for another km or so. All in all, Alkamar is a gem.

Its about 3 min drive to the nice and private beach. There's a good soda across the street they served big portions. There's a massage lady right next door she's great! $40 for a whole hour. It's about 40 min to the ferry and roads are decent. Very quiet not many clubs but i'm ok with that. Wifi signal was good and pool is so beautiful.

We stayed here one night. Althought the room was clean and big, it had NO window, the bathroom had a very strong chemical smell who would give you a headache just by walking in and... NO HOT WATER? It wasn't written anywere on their website that they only have cold water, if we knew we would not have stayed here. For a 65$ room this is a shame, and no breakfast included. When we went to the reception, the lady just shrugged and said "sorry". Too bad.

We spent 5 days here and didn't want to leave. The whole staff was outstanding and the food was delicious. We spent many hours by the pool and the great covered area by the pool. The howler monkeys even put on a show for us.
