We stayed in Alma for two months last year, I can't say anything bad about the place. I had been in Santa Teresa three times before and Alma is by far the best place I've stayed in. Me, my girlfriend and my brother were more than well taken care of by Rodrigo and Marcela (the owners), as soon as we moved in we felt like we were in the family. The house was perfect for the three of us, with a double bed and another bedroom with a singlebed. We loved the kitchen that made it possible for us to cook the nights we didn't go out for dinner. And talking about going out for dinner, Alma has one of the best restaurants in town. A small and cozy restaurant that serves amazing food, cocktails, smoothies, you name it.
Alma has a great location, about 100 meters to the beach, and about the same length to the center of Santa Teresa.
Another thing I need to say about Alma is security! I've not been in a place in Central America that is safer than Alma. Rodrigo and his family are very concerned about the security of their guests, and it pays off. The feeling of having all your stuff in a safe place makes the stay way more relaxed and pleasant.
Last but not least, the service is great. Both Marcela and Rodrigo are always there to help you with everything from booking a fishing-trip, something with the house or if you just want some good tips about Costa rica.
You will not regret your stay in Alma!
