The Alma del Pacifico was an excellent hotel in all respects. From the outside it is gaily painted with each resident having a separate cabana. Ours was spacious, well-appointed and had an excellent bed and a nice bathroom with a fine shower. Each cabana is basically self-contained and ours looked out to the sea and had a front yard of beach and shaded grass. The beach itself is long and wide and the walk in is shallow, although the surf can be strong and one needs to take care with the currents.
The staff is friendly but leaves you alone and you can be at peace all day doing nothing but walking, reading and relaxing. The food was excellent, better than anything we found in local restaurants, focused on outstanding fish but also with characteristic Central American beef dishes. And the breakfasts were yummy. Smoothies were available all day
If you want activities, there are plenty around including rain forest, riding, surfing and waterfalls hiking. But you don't need to do any of these to have a wonderful, relaxing set of days away from it all.
