Best one night stay the entire trip. I didn't want to leave. John and Janet are so welcoming. The place is immaculate. Food is fantastic. Entertainment was pretty good too! I had one of the best coconut curries I've ever had, and the bar is well stocked and a super fun hang. Nice, attentive staff. Lovely, seemingly brand new facilities...

Stayed here one night but wanted to stay a week. Woke in the morning and sat just outside my room on the private terrace. Couldn’t stop gazing at the views of the jungle and ocean with humming birds buzzing by and toucans in the distance. Get my room ready I’m coming back.

We came one night for the live music & dinner, and liked it so much that we booked a hotel room for the next night. Beautiful property, wonderful ocean view, great hosts. It was great fun to enjoy dinner and the music, then just walk over to the hotel room and spend the night. In the morning we relaxed on...

The place is such awesome and so are the owners of the hotel. The owners are very friendly, so I felt myself like I´m home. We have spent a great evening and night there with my friends, when we were traveling Costa Rica. It´s the oasis in the middle of nature. The rooms are clean and nice, the restaurant offers...

Rooms, pool, restaurant were all great. Recently renovated and very clean. Location and views were unbeatable. Would have stayed longer, but the hotel was full the following nights. Live music was great, but a bit too loud during dinner. Would have been great for either happy hour or after dinner.

I have been on a 3 week tour of Costa Rica, in that time I have found that unless you are ready to pay exorbitant $$ you usually will end up with accommodations lacking in cleanliness, upkeep & comfort...not so with this place. The ocean views & sunsets, the food, the entertainment, the nicely decorated bar & drinks, the pool,...

Our stay at The Alma was outstanding! We've been there twice in the last 2 weeks for 3 nights each time. It was so lovely the first time, we came back again. The ocean views from the rooms are stunning. Your balcony is a great place to watch the sunset. There is a wonderful pool as well. I enjoyed it...

We feel so blessed to have found the Alma! This place is amazing with the most beautiful views of the mountains and ocean. The property is gorgeous, perfectly landscaped and the rooms are pristine and comfortable! The owners John and Janet Chandry were exceptional hosts and made us feel like family. We had our 5 year old grandson with us...
