BEACH FRONT CONDOMINIUM IN LOS ALMENDROS DE OCOTAL

Playa Ocotal Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)

Los Almendros is a beachfront development on Playa Ocotal; a well protected 1/3 mile long beach with black sand at one end and white sand on the other. Playa Ocotal is a clean, safe, beautiful beach. Its protected shoreline provides guests a quiet, peaceful place to swim, snorkel and relax.

Los Almendros is beautifully landscaped with three swimming pools, two outdoor barbecues, and a rancho that is perfect for watching the spectacular sunsets. There are 24-hour security guards and the front office staff will be glad to answer any questions and help arrange activities in the area. This modern, secure, gated community has 43 units.

Our unit, #11 has an breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean from the back deck and the front door is just steps away from the pool. It is equipped with cable television, a DVD player, telephone and WI-FI. Free internet is also available in the Reception area (Desk top & Wi-Fi). The condo has an extensive collection of DVDs and CDs.

Our condo has a full kitchen with dishes and utensils so you can prepare your own meals if you like. However, there are also a couple of restaurants within walking distance and many more just a short drive away. The popular Father Rooster's restaurant on Ocotal Beach serves great food and drinks in a casual atmosphere. There are grocery stores, banks, restaurants and gift shops in the town of Coco, about 3 miles away ($5 taxi ride).

You can go to sleep to the sound of the waves on the beach in the master bedroom, which has a queen bed, private bathroom, and access to the rear deck. The deck is a quiet, peaceful place to watch birds, butterflies, iguanas and other Guanacaste wildlife. There is a second bedroom with two twin beds and a second bathroom. All linens are provided. Laundry service is available, or you may use our washing machine and dryer upon request. There are separately controlled air conditioners and ceiling fans in each room.

As members of the Papagayo Golf & Country Club, we can offer reduced rates at the challenging 18-hole golf course located 20 minutes from Los Almendros. You can take day trips to experience Costa Rica or have a fun evening in town and then return to relax at Los Almendros. This is the perfect place for a family vacation.

The owners are Gordy and Carol Lee. We were both born and raised in Alaska. We bought the condo in Los Almendros in 2002. We came on vacation a couple of weeks a year and rented it out so others could enjoy our little piece of paradise. After retirement, Carol lived in the condo while we built a house on the Papagayo Golf Course about 20 minutes away. We moved into our new home in July 2008 and enjoy our new life in Costa Rica.

Carol Lee purchased this condo in 2002

We came to Costa Rica on a three week vacation. We traveled around the country for a week and then our travel agent had booked us into the Ocotal Hotel for the last two weeks. We are both certified scuba divers and the hotel has a dive shop on Playa Ocotal. We had no intention of buying property when we arrived in Costa Rica. However, we met a realtor who showed us several condominiums, but Los Almendros was the only property that was right on the beach. The other properties had great ocean views but it was a long hike to the beach. Our condo was under construction when we saw it, and we spent the rest of our vacation learning about buying property in Costa Rica. We still haven't gone scuba diving!

Condo with great view

  • 3 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 5, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
All in all the condo is a nice place to stay. Beautiful view of the water.

Two major disappointments for me. The condo sits at the top of a rather steep, but short, hill. A lot of seniors, or people with ambulatory problems, would have trouble with it. I did. I had to drive my car the 100 meters to the beach because I could not walk back up the hill. The possibilities for snorkelling are over-rated because the water visibility is consistently poor - when water is clear snorkelling is quite good.

Quick access to Coco makes eating out and grocery shopping easy. The pools on the property are very nice. Father Roosters is as good as advertised.

We would not return to this beautiful location because of the steep hill, and the poor water visibility.
Owner's Response: Yes, the hill can be quite daunting, however the pool is just steps from our front door. Actually, our condo is not at the top of the hill. There are quite a few units that are farther up. The visibility for snorkeling varies throughout the year. It tends to be better later in the year when it isn't so windy. There is a dive shop on site and they tell me that although the visibility may not be as good as some other locations, there is a large variety of sea life to enjoy.

Fantastic vacation

Place was clean, spacious , comfy and safe. The guest bathroom shower door doesn't seal properly and you may have a bath by the sink if you're not careful

Neighborhood was extremely quiet and friendly, Pea the local beach dog will be your guide and friend for a small price of food and love

Our trip was amazing, the beach was perfect and in short walking distance and there was so much we could do. The weather and wildlife were perfect

We loved our stay at your property! We were so close to the beach that we could hear the waves and had a wonderful view from the balcony. It's great having a place to cook your own meals if you feel like it. Thanks so much!

Location, location!

We stayed at Los Almendros for 9 days in July and we had a blast! We visit the Guanacaste area 3 times a year and typically try a different house or condo each time. This one was great! It has everything you could possibly need for vacation. The rooms and beds are spacious and comfortable. The view is absolutely spectacular! There are two pools in the development and the smaller one is directly across from the unit. There is a scuba shop that we use when we come in that is on location and only a short 2 minute walk from the unit. Being able to do laundry made it possible to bring fewer clothes, but you shouldn't need much beyond a bathing suit! There is a restaurant about 50 yards down from the development called Father Roosters that has good food and decent prices. Ocotal beach feels a bit less crowded than other beaches, but is close enough to the strip in Playa Coco for the more rowdy night life. We really enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back!
