Located on the beach along beautiful Playa Esterillos Este, in Costa Rica’s breathtaking Central Pacific region, this 4 Star international hotel is the ultimate seaside escape. The sun-splashed beach, glistening ocean waves and steep verdant cliffs create an awe-inspiring landscape against the unique pastel villas of Alma del Pacifico. Lovely walking paths lead through colorful ornamental, herb and vegetable gardens to your oasis bungalow. And the incredible wildlife (including multitudes of endangered scarlet macaws, butterflies, iguanas and lizards) brings Costa Rica’s natural wonders right to your doorstep.
Featuring gourmet international and Costa Rican dishes, the onsite Alma Restaurant features fresh seafood and produce, with many fruits, vegetables and herbs grown in the hotel’s own gardens. From your table you are only yards away from the ocean in the open-air, thatched palm restaurant and bar, with all encompasing views of the beach and gardens from every table. The Spa is a tranquil oasis offering an extensive menu of therapies designed to leave you feeling relaxed and recharged.
Rooms: The intimate and luxurious rooms at Alma del Pacifico were designed to reflect Costa Rica’s colorful culture. Each room features a large private terrace with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean or Alma’s lush tropical gardens. The spacious bathrooms are highlighted by a mosaic-tiled shower that opens to a private garden. All have sitting area and kitchenette.
Highlites: There are over 150 works of original art throughout the resort by world-renowned artist Charlene Broudy who now resides in Santa Barabara California and maintains her own art gallery there. Charlene and her husband, architect Sherrill Broudy, created the Alma with the intent that guests would be immersed not only in nature but also art and design.
