We were instantly amazed with the service, which included a welcome drink and a tour of the facilities. Our garden bungalow was beautiful, private and very romantic. The grounds are beautiful and Alma del Pacifica is located on a beautiful, sandy beach. You have many choices during your down time; you can soak in the sun or lounge in the...

The Alma is worth a visit to Playa Esterillos! It is a beautifully designed property - the architecture is amazing - the artwork is inspiring and the grounds are meticulous. The standard of service here is above and beyond anything I have experienced, i.e., ask and you shall receive! Everyone here is committed to exceeding your expectations - from the...

We had an incredible time at Alma! Highly recommended! We were greater by our names and welcomed with a frozen mango drink upon arriving. We were given a complimentary upgrade to a room with a pool instead of the beachfront king villa. The views were amazing and we found the pool to be very refreshing throughout the trip. The room...

Come here if you want miles of beach to walk, no crowds, perfect accommodations, superb food and hosts willing to go the extra distance. We came near the end of rainy season and were pleasantly surprised at the lovely weather. It did rain two of the seven evenings, but we found it warm and pleasant to walk in. The Alma...

We had a wonderful stay. Our favorite part was how private and slightly remote it was, a true get away. The beachfront villas were absolutely beachfront...just steps away. The overall property was so well kept and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. I have recommended to friends and family already. Can't wait to go back, very relaxing.

Hola Orlando! Too bad you did not get the chance to stay at our hotel for more than one night. Having breakfast right along the beach is one of the best parts of our hotel! Sometimes the iguana's will visit during breakfast and beg for some fruit which is definitely entertaining :) Please come back and see us again soon!
