My family (brother, brother’s fiancée, father) and myself went to Costa Rica for vacation. After spending some time in the rainforest we headed to the beach. We stayed in villa 19 at Los Almendros and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The views out the back of the villa were amazing, overlooking the water. The villa was clean and modern and air conditioned – which after days in the jungle, hot and wet, being cool and dry was wonderful! The villa is well stocked with entertainment choices (flat screen tv, wifi, computer, books, movies etc.) in case you need some time inside. The kitchen is ready to cook in and easy to find items in – always a plus. There were also lots of little things to make your stay nicer like plenty of towels, a hairdryer, safe, and access to the washer and dryer. All the pillows and beds were comfortable and everyone in our group was comfortable temperature wise since each room had its own A/C unit. The sound of crashing waves lulled us to sleep every night. A few steps down from the villa is the sparkling pool, complete with lounging hammocks under shades. Just a bit further down the hill is the main entrance where you’ll find security and the dive shop. If you continue walking from there you’ll find yourself at Father Rooster’s (a restaurant and bar) on the beach. It’s probably about a 5 minute walk from the back door of the villa to the beach. A short drive down the road is Playas del Coco where you will find tourist shops, dive shops, restaurants, the grocery store etc. It’s a very short drive. We did scuba from Coco, we saw sharks, a ray, tons of fish and generally had a great time. I would highly recommend this villa as a base of operations for your costal explorations in Costa Rica!
The moment you step into this villa at Los almendros you know you have made the right choice.Whether you are a first-time visitor to Costa Rica or a repeat guest you are immediately drawn to the incredible view - a spacious balcony & comfortable chairs allow you the opportunity to relax and appreciate the wondrous vista. But a rental location needs more than a great view, so let's get down to details.The kitchen is fully stocked including all the extras you might need (ex wineglasses/cork screw/plastic plastic containers etc). Flat screen TV, leather couch, designer dining room table, wireless internet access, what more could you want? Bedroom upstairs has a top notch Tempur-Pedic mattress and pillows, gorgeous furniture, and a serene atmosphere. The high level of cleanliness is evident throughout the house. The owners seem to have anticipated guests every need - beach towels (a bonus with airlines restrictive baggage limits) maps, tourist info, quality linen, books etc. You are steps away from the rancho (overlooking the pool)- a fantastc spot to read, stare at the water, enjoy a BBQ supper, or chat with other guests. Los almendros is exceptional in so many ways...the view, proximity to the beach, and office staff that goes out of their way to guarantee your visit will one to remember. The gardeners, cleaning ladies, security guards are all ready to help make this trip problem-free. Playas del Coco is a short drive way, offering restaurants, bars, churches, souvenir shops, grocery stores, banks etc. Spectacular sunsets, howler monkeys, the sound of the waves crashing on the shore, creature comforts, tropical landscaping, friendly staff - these are but a few reasons to visit Los almendros. Pura vida!
“Amazing family vacation in Costa Rica”
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in villa #19 at Los almendros. The villa is beautiful, well equipped, and most definitely turned out to be our home away from home! The view from the deck is spectacular. We loved the back door access to the pool...it was like we had our very own pool! It was just a short drive to Coco Beach for groceries at the brand new grocery store. Costa Rica is beautiful and the people at Los almendros are very friendly. I would highly recommend villa #19 at Los almendros.
“The Ideal Place!”
Scott and Meyling property in Playa Ocotal is "The place" to stay in the Guanacaste Peninsula. It is secluded and quiet, with a post-card view of the Caribbean. Walking distance from the beach and with a pool that's provided with a hammock that is hard to beat. The property was impeccable, with all the necessary amenities to make a feast, and a large balcony to enjoy the sunset. All rooms had air conditioning, were comfortable, tastefully decorated, and the property ample and clean. The service was great and the check in and check out a snap. All the amenities are at short distance in Playa Los Cocos, including scuba diving, shopping and all kind of restaurants. Internet was available. Great place for our base camp to explore Costa Rica. Can not wait to go back!
“Los almendros de Ocotal unit #19”
The accomodations here in Costa Rica were excellent. There was four of us in the house and plenty of rooms for everyone with extra room to spare. The kitchen is very spacious and perfect for the amazing meal we cooked up one night as we drank wine and enjoyed the super nice view. See pictures below. The apartment was clean and well equipped with all the things we needed during our stay. We enjoyed lounging around in the pool which included a covered area in case you are sick of too much sun. The location was ideal for us and close to all of the activities we were interested in, especially scuba diving.
Response from the owner Thank you for your nice comments. Since your stay at villa #19 in March 2011, we've made a number of improvements. There is all new furniture in the master BR and living room. The master has a new Tempur Pedic mattess. The kitchen is being completely redone with all new cabinetry and appliances as we speak. Hope you'll get to come again one day. Meyling and I are very anxious to get back to Costa Rica ourselves. Thanks again, Scott Sanford
“Fabulous, fun and relaxing times in beautiful Ocotal, Guanacaste”
We,family of 4 including 2 younger children, stayed at this Condo unit , #19, for 5 days in 2010. We had a great time in the Guanacaste area and enjoyed the spectacular scenery and friendly people immensely. We just got around to posting this review and we highly recommend staying at this unit! We have been to Costa Rica a total of 5 times in various areas. and have visited Central america including Nicaragua We stayed at the condo at Los almendros de Ocotal. The views from the condo, it's actually a free-standing town-home since there are no attached neighbors at all, were fantastic from the balcony and even the parking spaces outside. We saw some monkeys, iguanas and ton's of interesting birds. The beach is just steps away and was very clean with small boats bobbing around in the small cove. I hear the diving is fantastic here.The unit was very clean and we used the well equiped kitchen to cook some delicious meals and save money. The kids enjoyed watching the TV and used it to play their Wii. We were pratically the only ones at the nice sized pool and the views were wonderful. We took some day trips to the surrounding areas including sizzling Tamarindo which was only about 50 minutes away. There are taxi's you can call if you need it. There are many small restaurants in area and there are also some larger resorts that have restaurants. There are 2 large and modern supermarkets in town. Nino, the manager and his staff always responded quickly to our requests and questions . I see that the owner has added a laptop with Internet connectivity now and has re-modelled this already nice unit. The unit has 3 bedrooms, 2 on the lower floor, and 2 bathrooms as well as a open Kitchen/sitting/dining area. I believe there is a washer/dryer in the unit now. The american (USa) owners are very friendly and accomodating as well as very responsible. We highly recommend staying here at the condo atLos alemdros de Ocotal, #19.
Response from the owner Thank you Paul. I am so pleased to hear that you will be visiting again this Christmas. I'm glad you enjoyed your prior stay and I'm sure you will be pleasantly surprised by all of the improvements to the villa since then. Merry Chrismas! Scott and Meyling
