Almonds and Corals Hotel
Reviewed 5 August 2016

This unique hotel, is situated right in the rainforest, bordering the Caribbean sea and adjacent to almond trees. As soon as you arrive you feel at peace, the surroundings envelop you and treat you to a magical experience.
The staff was amazing, every single one of them went overboard to make us happy.
Totally recommend!

If you want to experience nature at a place with excellent cousine, this is the place. You will hear howling monkeys from your room; most probably you will see sloths, crabs with bright colors. And the special attention of the staff is great.

This small slice of paradise is a perfect blend of nature and comfort...
Marco (the owner) always had the time to share his vast knowledge on many subjects and to show us the wonderful wildlife infused surroundings...howler monkeys, sloths toucans and yes! 2 eyelash vipers!
Angel made the delicious food even better with his winning smile and charm.
The accommodations were comfortable and wonderfully situated in the jungle. Waking to a cacophony of insect, bird and monkeys sounds is something truly memorable.
While the ocean directly in front of the hotel was too rough for swimming, one doesn't have to go far down the beach to find a calmer piece of the Carribbean.
I am hard pressed to find anything negative to say about Almonds and Corals. Although, after reading some of the comments I have to wonder if we were talking about the same hotel..

So, its not worth the high price tag but we enjoyed our stay. The place is quite run down, with need of a spruce up, better food (although breakfast was great as was Angel the man who looked after the kitchen). It doesn't do luxury as it claims though.

Rooms were clean and lovely, just not worth the high price tag! Privacy is a problem, but if you think of it like camping, you're ok.

With regards to some of the other reviews, you're in the jungle. There are bugs in the jungle and monkeys. They make noise. That's what you're there for, to be close to nature. Yes it is loud, and there are lots of bugs but we loved that bit!

This is definitely a place for the adventurous! And try and negotiate on price as its not worth the high price tag! Book direct...

Room Tip: apparently room 16 is nice!

I visited Almendros y Corales with high expectations because of its reputation as a sustainable hotel. To my dismay this hotel is not only NOT environmentally friendly (the janitor told us he was using muriatic acid to clean the bathroom pipes!), it is old and run-down due to lack of maintenance, dirty, offers bad service, bad food, and doesn't comply with the standards it sets. By no means do you get your money's worth! There are great hotels in Costa Rica that are truly environmentally friendly, this is not one of them! I sent an email to the owner with pictures of the terrible state of their installations and the response was "I'll return the money for the nights you don't stay", which was not what I was expecting at all considering the long trip and high season. This hotel promotes itself as a "wedding and honey moon destination" I pity the couple that choses this place!
