Reviewed 8 May 2014

Thank you for a great stay! The only thing we regret is not to have stayed more time. Incredible setting, beautiful views, great breakfast and service from the two American (USA) owners that are very nice and make the place even better. The room with a balcony overlooking the forest full of tropical birds and the ocean in the distance. Very close to a super natural beach to walk on and spend a few hours We stayed there to take the boat next morning in Sierpe (1 hour away) to Corcovado, great choice!

This belongs to the top three out of the hotel we stayed at in Costa Rica. We are primarily interested in the quiet opportunity to training and we had our own MTB on the trip. We also want it to be peaceful and quiet at the hotel we were staying. Just a few kilometers there are totally unmarked roads down to deserted beaches which suited us perfectly. The hotel is wonderful with fantastic views and a nice pool. WiFi in the room with great speed! The only thing we can remark is that the service at breakfast was sometimes a little slow but we are pretty impatient

This place is just plain awesome!! Beautiful, clean, private rooms, with elegant style and details. Super comfortable bed, we slept great and woke to stunning views from the private deck of the suite. Fantastic mountain top pool with equally great views, even better in person than the photos can capture. Scott and Russel give a really warm welcome and make you feel right at home. The Azul restaurant a short walk way is the best restaurant I've ever been to in my life! Food quality, ocean and river view, great wine, and friendly service were all top notch! We will definitely be back!

Stayed here for 6 nights in February 2014 in a comfortable, large room with overhead fan and air-conditioning.
Staff and owners 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. The peace of the hotel is fantastic. 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.

Room Tip: All rooms face due west, the upper ones are smaller but have great ocean views from sizeable terrace...

Our stay at Alma was nothing short of breathtaking. Our room and sizeable balcony faced west, so every night we were treated to sunset over the Pacific. Wine by the pool, coffee and a delicious breakfast each morning, and foodie-approved dinners at the Alma's sister property, El Castillo, made this an incredible vacation. Scott and Russell were amazing hosts, and David was incredibly gracious and attentive without being intrusive. I'm already planning our next trip back!

Alma is a very relaxing and beautiful place to stay while in Costa Rica. Scott and Russell will do everything they can to ensure your stay with them is amazing. Be sure to relax poolside while you are there.

Russell and Scott are amazing hosts. They make you feel pampered and comfortable. Even before we got there, Scott was amazingly helpful in planning our time. Each day they serve a different gourmet breakfast. They arranged for us to go to a beach spot one day and the other day we were in town, we went canoeing with Uvita360 (also very good). The room was comfortable and well appointed. I would have loved a little more reading light but other than that, just perfect. Each morning, my husband and I sat outside having coffee by the pool with the ocean view. It was the best hotel of our ten day trip. The sister hotel --- Castillo has a great restaurant and pool and is a wonderful spot for sunset drinks. Love these two little gem hotels. Highly recommend.
