It was great to return to Alma after nearly 7 years (when it was Xandari). Alma del Pacifico is beautiful - the beach is magnificent, the property is immaculately maintained, the food at the restaurant is delicious with lots to choose from, and the people working at Alma are beautiful people - so very kind. We stayed in Villa 6...

Hola! Thank you so much for your kind review of Alma. We're thrilled you got the opportunity to come back and see us after so long! I definitely have to agree with everything you touched on in your review. Our hotel is set directly on a beautiful, expansive beach (you can walk miles in either direction and hardly see anyone!)....

My friends and I had a magnificent time during our stay at Alma Del Pacifico Beach Hotel & Spa. Our room had two queen beds with a full bathroom, including two sinks, and a walk-in shower. Also, the room had a beautiful view of the beach that was just a short walk away, like you were walking in to your...

A beautifully intimate resort. Colorful unique villas on the beachfront with private pools can only be found at Alma del Pacifico Beach Hotel & Spa. Each room is a vibrant open space with a bathroom to fit a very large shower and secluded toilet, ideal for travelling with others and still retaining privacy. Beautiful view of the beach and sunset...

I love beaches, more than any other kind of travel destinations in the world. Alma del Pacifico is by far one of the most unique and beautiful beach hotel destinations I have ever been lucky enough to stay in. Their incredibly helpful marketing manager, Kalie Walter, described the hotel as paradise, but even that description does not do it justice....

I can't rant and rave enough about this hotel. First of all, it's beautiful there, the rooms are only steps away from with beach. The rooms themselves are by far one of the best hotel rooms I have ever stayed in, everything feels brand new and the open concept layout with large sliding glass doors and the windows give you...

Let me start that I found Alma Del Pacifico via Groupon. I did a lot of research and it was all good reviews so I grabbed the deal...but I was still skeptical that the pictures were real.. When we arrived and went to pick up the car rental I found out that Costa Rica has mandatory insurance, long story short...

I came here with a friend during the low season and we essentially had the place to ourselves! There are two pools that are open 24 hours, clean and on the smaller side and a spa though we never visited it. I highly recommend you spend your time at or overlooking the large, beautiful beach on the property instead! The...
