Screened Patio: Condo 42 is the only Los Almendros rental unit with a screened rear patio. In the evening, guests can relax and listen to the ocean surf without being bothered by insects attracted by the patio's overhead lights. The ability to use the patio, day or night, significantly increases the condo's living space. Families with children appreciate having a second television on the patio.

Outstanding Swimming and Snorkeling: Playa Ocotal is one of Guanacaste's quietest and cleanest 'Blue Flag' beaches. The ocean surf is very gentle. Playa Ocotal has no dangerous riptides. Travel guides recommend Playa Ocotal to outdoor enthusiasts who want to snorkel from a Guanacaste beach. Guanacaste snorkelers drive many miles to explore the rock formations at both ends of Playa Ocotal Beach. Playa Ocotal's best snorkeling is directly below Los Almendros. On most days, snorkelers see numerous species of colorful, tropical fish in Playa Ocotal's clear waters.

Club membership: We are members of The Club at Coco Bay. Guests staying in our condominium enjoy full membership privileges at this outstanding private facility. The Club at Coco Bay offers lighted tennis courts, a gym with modern exercise equipment, two swimming pools, yoga/Zumba classes and one of the area's best restaurants.

Father Rooster's Restaurant: One of Ocotal's most popular restaurants is located less than 200 meters from the entrance to Los Almendros. Father Rooster's is a beachfront restaurant that serves tasty appetizers, full meals and delicious tropical drinks. Fresh seafood is the restaurant's specialty. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner. Father Rooster's is a great place to enjoy a beautiful Guanacaste sunset.

Playas del Coco: Coco is Guanacaste's fastest growing beach community. The town is a 5 minute drive from Los Almendros. Coco has modern grocery stores, pharmacies, banks, ATM machines, restaurants, ice cream shops, disco/bars, souvenir shops, a casino and an emergency medical facility.

Garmin GPS: We provide our guests the same EZFind GPS software that local rental car agencies charge $7-10 per day. We have added numerous restaurants and activities to EZFind's standard package. Our GPS unit includes all of Coco's best restaurants and Guanacaste's most popular tourist attractions. Select 'Home' and our GPS unit will provide you the safest, quickest route back to Los Almendros.

Pre-Paid Cell Phone: Cell phones from the USA and Canada require a different chip to work in Costa Rica. If the required chip is purchased, roaming charges can be very high. To resolve communication concerns, we provide our guests a pre-paid cell phone that can be used to call anywhere in Costa Rica. A few important phone numbers have been programmed for emergency use. These include the Los Almendros office, our General Manager's cell phone and the cell phone number of an English speaking doctor who works out of the emergency medical clinic in Playas del Coco.

Most guests use their iPads and Skype to make inexpensive calls to the USA or Canada.

Rocket Frog Diving: The Rocket Frog dive shop is located next door to Los Almendros' business office. Rocket Frog has Guanacaste's fastest dive boat and newest scuba equipment. Training is conducted in Los Almendros' main pool. Guests staying at Los Almendros are entitled to a 10% discount on all dive services.

Los Almendros' fully equipped condominiums are classified as a 'specialty lodging'. Los Almendros is one of Northern Guanacaste's top rated beachfront properties. We are Playa Ocotal's #1 rated 'specialty lodging'.

Vacation Planning Assistance: Playa Ocotal is an excellent location from which to initiate day trips. Los Almendros has an experienced, bilingual office staff that assists guests in making reservations for deep sea fishing, diving, snorkeling, sailing, rafting, tubing, zip lining, massages, hiking, bird watching, hot springs, rain forest tours, volcanoes, canopy tours and horseback riding. The on-site General Manager has been with Los Almendros for over ten years. He is bilingual, a Guanacaste native, and knows all the local tour operators. One of his greatest strengths is his ability to help guests plan and coordinate their vacation activities.

Transportation: A car is nice to have, but is not a necessity in Costa Rica. Taxi’s from Los Almendros to Coco cost $7-8 each way. Several tour operators will pick-up and drop off at Los Almendros. Taxi service is available to and from the Liberia airport ($55 car, $70 van). The Los Almendros office can arrange to have you picked up at the Liberia Airport, and have a rental vehicle delivered to your condo.

If Condo 42 is not available: The VRBO calendar for Condo 42 is always kept up to date. If our condo is not available for the dates you require, please contact us.

During the USA's cold winter months, they enjoy coming down to Playa Ocotal for a relaxing week in the sun. We look forward to having grand children that we can teach to swim and snorkle in Playa Ocotal's gentle waters.

Gail Brewer purchased this condo in 2005

Why Gail Brewer chose Playa Ocotal

Los Almendros de Ocotal enjoys a 'Prime' beachfront location. Most equivalent properties in Guanacaste are owned by large hotels. Los Almendros de Ocotal is preferred by travelers who prefer to stay at a small, less commercial resort. Los Almendros does not require its guests to purchase an 'all inclusive' meal plan. Our guests enjoy dining at local independent restaurants, and preparing an occasional home cooked meal. They do not worry about missing scheduled meals...they can dine wherever their travels take them. Playa Ocotal is a very quiet and peaceful beach. The rock formations directly below Los Almendros is one of Guanacaste's most popular locations for snorkeling from shore. Snorkelers routinely see schools of beautiful angel fish, game fish, rays, eels and octopi. We provide our guests good quality snorkeling gear, free of charge.

What makes this condo unique

Relying on feedback from our guests, we continuously add new items for our patrons to enjoy. For example: 1) Playas del Coco has over 30 restaurants. Several of the best restaurants are not easy to find. We provide our guests a free GPS unit. The GPS device is pre-programmed with the location of Coco's best restaurants and Guanacaste's most popular tourist attractions. Our GPS unit recognizes Los Almendros as 'Home'. No matter where you travel in Costa Rica, your GPS unit will provide you the quickest, safest return route to Los Almendros. 2) US and Canadian cell phones require a special chip to function in Costa Rica. When they do work, roaming charges are expensive. We provide our North American guests a cell phone that can be used to make free calls anywhere in Costa Rica. The phone numbers of the Los Almendros office, our General Manager's cell phone, and the number of an English speaking doctor in Coco are pre-programmed. 3) Playa Ocotal offers Guanacaste's best snorkeling. The rock formations directly below Los Almendros is the most popular off-shore snorkeling location in Northern Guanacaste. 4) A popular, reasonably priced, beachfront restaurant is located less than 100 meters from the entrance to Los Almendros. 'Father Rooster's' specializes in seafood and delicious tropical drinks. The 'vegetarian nachos' are a favorite appetizer. 5) Los Almendros has a top rated dive shop on site...Rocket Frog Divers. Guests our entitled to a 10% discount off Rocket Frog's published rates. 6) In addition to world class deep sea fishing, many families enjoy fishing near shore for red snapper. They grill their fresh catch on the private charcoal BBQ in front of our condo. 7) Our guests enjoy membership privileges at Coco Bay Beach Club. This club offers spa treatments, tennis courts, swimming pools with children slide, exercise machines, yoga classes and Zumba classes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of four just returned from beautiful Costa Rica. We decided to stay at Los Almendros because of all of the great reviews we had read on Trip Advisor, and we were not disappointed. We stayed in Condo #42 which was a very nice 2 bedroom unit which also supplied snorkel equipment for their guests. The view of the beach was beautiful. We spent lots of time exploring the black sand beach which also had all sorts of rock formations that the kids had a blast climbing. The tide changes made the exploration different each and every time. The snorkeling was right off of the beach and was really great with lots of beautiful fish and the kids were excited to even see a couple of stingrays. There is a nice restaurant directly on the beach called Father Rooster which had great food and was so convenient on the nights we didn't feel like heading to Coco, the touristy neighboring town. The condo complex had several swimming pools which were all very nice, and we always stopped at the pools for a short swim after going to the beach. Stephanie, who runs the desk at Los Almendros was always very friendly and helpful. Our family doesn't like crowds and Playa Ocotal was never crowded and a perfect location for our family. Having the snorkeling opportunity right there was even better. We spent lots of time at the beach and also booked a snorkel tour with Pelican tours which are located right on the beach in Ocotal. We saw a pod of dolphin and then stopped at a beach where he knew howler monkeys hung out and sure enough, there they were eating mangos out of the trees. We came across a giant (and I mean giant) school of black fin tuna. When Brian, our guide, saw them he got out his rod and reel and almost immediately hooked one and allowed my 15 year old son to reel it in which was quite a work out and very exciting. Needless to say, we got a deep sea fishing adventure that my son will never forget! And yes, we also stopped at 3 snorkeling sites which were also very nice. We also made a stop at a "cave" which we thought we were going to snorkel in but it was really a place where the water had created a huge hole in the cliff and water rushed in and out. Our guide walked us to the top of that hill for a gorgeous overlook so that made up for the disappointment of not snorkeling in the "cave." I would definitely recommend Los Almendros and Playa Ocotal for any family looking for a great vacation. (Originally posted by Kirsten on TripAdvisor).

Our favorite place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Jeanie and I have been coming to Costa Rica almost every year for the past decade to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We have stayed at a number of Guanacaste resorts and visited several others. Ocotal is our favorite beach, and Los Almendros de Ocotal is our favorite place to stay. This year we stayed at a condo on the front row that had excellent reviews posted on VRBO. The reviews were right on the mark. Our condo was well equipped and only a 2-3 minute walk to the beach. An earlier review listed a number of local restaurants. We are not familiar with all of the restaurants listed, but we agree with the reviewer's overall assessment...we too have never had a bad meal in Costa Rica. In Ocotal, both Father Rooster's and Ocotal Beach Resort are excellent restaurants. The restaurant at Ocotal Beach Resort is up on a bluff, and may be the best place in the area to watch Costa Rica's beautiful sunsets. Ocotal Beach and the rear terrace of our condo also provided excellent sunset views. Picante's is another Ocotal restaurant that offers good food and beautiful ocean views. Our rental unit had a nice BBQ unit out front. We purchased charcoal, lighter fluid and fresh seafood in Coco. We grilled the fish and enjoyed a fantastic home cooked meal. At night the air-conditioned bedrooms are very comfortable. However, our condo had ceiling fans and secure screen doors that enabled Jeanie and I to go to sleep listening to the ocean surf and enjoying the comfortable breeze that comes off the ocean in the evening.

A perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5
Ron and Gail,
We got home yesterday evening and spent today digging out from 13 inches of snow. Thank you so much for letting us rent your condo. It was perfect for what we wanted to do, was furnished with everything we could possibly need and the air conditioners and fans kept us completely comfortable. The staff was very helpful and we enjoyed the beautiful pool halfway up the hill. We did a riverboat tour, a zipline and hiked at Rincon de la Vieja National Park but we most enjoyed just staying at Los Almendros. We snorkeled nearly every day, usually twice, and saw MANY beautiful fish plus some exciting rays, eels, colorful moon jellies and lots of pipefish. We snorkeled at both ends of the beach, but the best experience was right in front of the condo. We spent many hours enjoying the beautiful screened patio. We saw over 30 species of birds from there, including mot mots, trogons, anis, parrots and parakeets. The black screen does not interfere with the view at all. We enjoyed the large iguanas, watched a family of raccoons come down out of the trees, a coati wandering right by the patio, the big squirrels and we watched a large troop of howler monkeys by the beach. We went out to eat every evening (love seafood) and we were never disappointed – many wonderful choices and since I had researched them on TripAdvisor we knew what to expect. Villa Italia is truly worth the little trip down the dark dirt roads. We ate there three times and the meals and atmosphere were perfect. We enjoyed Papagayo Seafood, Papagayo Las Olas, Marisqueria Milanes, La Dolce Vita and others. Father Rooster’s right on the beach was perfect for those times we wanted to stay close. We enjoyed the local atmosphere in and around Playas del Coco. The people are very friendly and helpful. The AutoMercado was almost like a supermarket from home and we enjoyed the more local Luperon and Super Compro markets. The road from Ocotal to Coco was quite an experience. I had imagined open road! It truly was a dream vacation for us and we hope to be able to return.
Thanks again, Jan and Terry

Fantastic Family Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family of four loved Los Almendros. Our teenage boys snorkeled almost every day and saw hundreds of beautiful fish. The beautiful Playa Ocotal beach is great for swimming and snorkeling. The Los Almendros office staff is very friendly and does an outstanding job. They arranged for car rentals, recommended and scheduled several tours (Deep Sea Fishing, Tubing and Zip Lines), and told us about Playas del Coco’s best restaurants. Condo 42 has the best location in the complex. We enjoyed the privacy and beautiful ocean view that this condo offers. The condo was very clean, modern and nicely decorated. We brought a laptop computer and enjoyed having our own Wi-Fi connection. The boys brought their iPods and were able to listen to their favorite music thru the iPod system provided. We saved quite a bit of money by preparing many of our meals. The kitchen is very well equipped. We purchased our food from the very modern AutoMercado grocery store in Coco. We are very happy that we found this very reasonably priced condo on HomeAway. We will definitely recommend Los Almendros and Condo 42 to family and friends.

A bit of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4, including two teenagers, stayed at Los Almendros for 11 days in July and we had the most wonderful family vacation ever! Our experience with the owner, Gail, was exceptional as was our experience with the condo/community staff, Nino and Stefanie. Each one of them were so very helpful in so many ways...from how to "get around" the area/organizing all of our transportation needs (to/from the airport, to a rainforest up north, and to the nearby villages for shopping), to things available to do and see, places to go, and where to do our grocery shopping. Every one of our needs were met! The condo was absolutely perfect. It had everything we needed and it being an end unit made it very private. We loved the view from our back porch! The condo community had some wonderful, cool water pools that we often took advantage of and we so enjoyed seeing all of the various birds, lizards, iguanas, squirrels, crabs, and a couple of very sweet dogs. The beach area, just a very short 2 min walk away, was fabulous! The cove area offers so much variety in appearance with big, volcanic rocks on either side with outstanding snorkeling (inexpensive rental of equipment right on the beach), as well as a beautiful, black sand beach in the center where you can rent a sea kayak (also inexpensively) and "paddle out to sea" or just enjoy the clear, warm water. This "bit of paradise" seems to be a secret that we were very blessed to have found to spend a most memorable family vacation!

Gina,
Ron and I are glad your family enjoyed their stay at Los Almendros. Nino and Stephanie are always happy to share their knowledge of Guanacaste with Los Almendros guests. We are fortunate to have such helpful and conscientious employees managing the rental business.

I hope you kayaked over to "Gringo" beach just north of Playa Ocotal. This beautiful, private beach is only accessible by boat. It is my favorite place to rest and relax.

Please tell your friends about Los Almendros and come back to visit us again.
Cheers,
Gail

Great value on a beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5
This Los Almendros condo was perfect for our family of four's two week vacation in Costa Rica - beaufiful scenery, great activities and a clean, relaxing place to stay at a reasonable price. Los Almendros is right on the beach and our kids loved it - safe swimming, exciting snorkeling, and interesting tide pools. The two swimming pools were clean, refreshing, and peaceful. The staff was tremendous expecially Nino and Stephanie who helped with many things including activity reservations, a private boat rental, and finding a local soccer match. The Brewer's unit was clean, comfortable, and affordable. We were able to prepare many meals in the functional kitchen. The unit had all the essentials and many extras - like a washer/dryer, comfortable beds, and a great air-conditioning system. The view of the beach is spectacular, we saw monkeys, motmots, and iguanas. Hard to imagine a better option.

Real recovery in a calm condo

  • 5 of 5
Since three years we - my wife and I, a married couple from Germany – spent the three winter months in Costa Rica, going back when, when springtime is coming at home. We enjoy the peacefulness of the location in Ocotal - Los Almendros. This year we reserved an end unit with more privacy. Because there are no roads passing by, the unit is really quiet during day and night and this is very important for our stay.
We especially enjoy being able to look out over the ocean and to also observe the wildlife in the wooded area directly near the balcony. The evenings during and after sunset together with the ocean surf only some tens of meters below the balcony and the songs of many different birds are always a special experience for us. At night we like to chain lock the screen doors and leave the wood doors open, which brings a pleasant cooling breeze into the rooms. So, we nearly never had to use one of the three air conditioners in the condo.

The condo is fully equipped with everything which is needed also for guys who like to prepare their own meals. The owners are friendly and do everything to make the holidays for their clients as pleasant as possible. We were allowed to use the Internet, which is available in the living room. The team of Los Almendros is always kind and helpful.

Overall, we were very happy with the place and our stay and would recommend it to friends. Our fixed plan is to come back next year.
