The hotel is nestled on top of a mountain with awesome views of the ocean and mountains in background. You awake to the songs of several species of birds and frogs. Breakfast is served in a quaint area overlooking the pool and the ocean with hummingbirds fluttering about. We are glad we found this small jewel of the jungle. The...

We stayed for 5 nites this trip..not long enough. We missed a visit by a curious Sloth by 2 days but the videos of that visit were awesome. Our Suite was perfect. Complete in every way. A/C was awesome but we tended not to need it after the setting sun...a most gorgeous time of the day in South Country. Breakfast...

We were very pleasantly surprised by the Alma… The setting overlooks the Pacific ocean in the distance and has a magnificent sunset view from your balcony. The tiny swimming pool is just the perfect size for a quick dip after a cocktail or a long Dusty trip. The food in the restaurant was amazingly wonderful and the big bonus was...

The owners are great and accommodating. They are very hands on to make sure your stay is all you expected it would be. The rooms are clean and nice, there is good food and live music each evening.

As we said Alma...

Very quiet, clean, & picturesque, enjoyable. Food & entertainment superb. Stay here for a night or two as we did to visit the local beaches. We took a snorkeling trip. You won't regret anything about a stay here. Will need decent vehicle.

We literally stumbled by accident into our favorite hotel. John and Janet have paid attention to even the smallest of details to make a perfect stay at the Alma. The beds, the coffee, great shower, the deck view of the Pacific. PERFECT!! We will be back next year.

I have nothing but wonderful things about this little hotel. It has amazing views, rooms are clean and comfortable. The balcony is fantastic, the views make for unbelievable sunsets. Even the show pressure is better than my own home! What makes this hotel even better, is the owners and staff! So friendly and make you feel right at home...plus they...

My wife and I had the luck to book this gem of a place for a night on our way from Drake's Bay to Manuel Antonio. We really wish we could have stayed longer. The place was quiet and relaxing with an excellent restaurant attached and a lovely terrace with a pool. There's only a few rooms so it can't...
