Almonds and Corals Hotel
Reviewed 18 March 2011

Almonds and Corals was a delight! Set in a rainforest, 2 minute stroll to the Caribean Sea,
friendly staff, all sorts of creatures and insects abound, I've never had an experience like it.
The restaurant menu is adequate, JC is a fabulous source of info about the animals and area, and a wonderful server as well (all the staff were great).
The only suggestions we had for the owner Marco, was a website that shows off the place a little better (and a list of amenities in room), and more places to hang clothes
and put belongings (a shelf or two would be nice). Not a place for those scared of bugs, or looking for a party every night. We had the place to ourselves for the first 3 days, which we loved. And the curtained toilet might make some people uncomfortable. It was like luxury camping... and that jacuzzi at the end of the day after a zipline or nature walk, heaven!

We enjoyed every moment of our stay at Almonds and Coral. The bungalows in the trees and the entire place gives anyone the most beautiful stay in the jungle. The howler monkeys greet you to each stunning day. And so your day begins and ends filled with animals and birds. The bungalows are lovely, hospitality galore and the service was truly wonderful Costa Rican style. Pura vida.

I was at this lodge three years ago and again this week. Two friends and I celebrated our 40th birthdays here. The staff member Alan Romero Solano's attention to every detail was most helpful in advance and provided us the necessary comfort that everything was taking care of, including all of our travel details to and from the lodge. Brenda at the reception was also most helful and outwardly warm. Dioniosio was an expert nature guide whos knowledge and patience really enhanced our understanding of the environment. We felt very comfortable with all of the staff including the guards and staff who drove us to the airport. We felt very safe. The food at the lodge was delicious and fresh.

The best part about the lodge is that it is in the rain forest and on the carribean coast. We heard howler monkeys regularly .

I'm already planning my third trip to this lodge with family members.

I got to stay at Almonds for a couple nights and absolutely loved it!! There is nothing like being able to litterally go to sleep and wake up in the rainforest to all the sounds and smells of the wild. I loved the way the rooms are lifted off the ground to ensure that they dont take ground space away from the wildlife and that the walls allow the sounds to travel right through your room. Waking up to the sounds of the Howler monkeys in the morning cant be explained. I felt like the entire staff loved making your stay everything it could be and they were all so friendly. Being able to walk down to the beautiful beach is amazing and a site to see for yourself! you wont regret it!!

Almonds and Corals was the perfect winter getaway for us. It was truly set in nature and yet we had all the amenities of other resorts. It only took one night to get used to the wildlife serenading us. The room was comfortable. The food was great. The owners were extremely accessible and knowledgeable about the area. The beach was beautiful and private, yet only a short walk to Manzanillo, the local town. We had a couple of rainy days, so if you go in January pack some good books! I felt like Almonds and Corals gave us the feel of adventure and relaxation wrapped into one.

I went with about 12 people from college as a class. We traveled all over Costa Rica and Panama and this was BY FAR the best place we stayed at. The people were so friendly, with a GREAT location and it was absolutely perfect. I would not recommend staying anywhere else!

Almondsa and Corals is a beautiful place to stay whether you want to have a leisurely time and relax on the beach or want to explore the surrounding rainforest. With their unique way of preserving the surrounding forest there is no way you'll miss any of the splendor.
