Fodor's Expert Review Alma Del Pacifico Beach Hotel & Spa

3 km (2 miles) north of Playa Bejuco, next to Encantada Cottages, Esterillos Este, Puntarenas, 10-6300, Costa Rica

Combining Costa Rica’s vibrant architecture with modern design, this tranquil property offers spacious rooms and colorful beach bungalows with indoor-outdoor rain showers and private gardens. Tucked behind 8-foot walls, each room was designed with privacy and luxury in mind and includes a collection of books, huge flat-screen TVs, and a minibar full of complimentary juice and water. The two mosaic swimming pools are sparkling clean and surrounded by waterfalls and mini-palapas for shade. The open-air restaurant specializes in organic cuisine, serving such dishes as grilled fish, tuna tartare, sashimi, and gazpacho. Many ingredients (for the food and the natural spa products) are grown on-site.
