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.

About Carol Lee
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
Why Carol Lee chose Cantón Carrillo
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!

Beautiful Condo with Convenient Beach Access
This was a beautiful well kept condo in a lovely location! There is a view of the ocean and tree canopy from the condo and it is a short walk to Playa Ocotal (less than one minute). The beach is clean and secluded, it never felt too busy. There is a really good restaurant right on the beach.
The kitchen has a contemporary design and appears to be recently remodeled. You can tell that the owners cook because all the tools you would need are there. The management office is conveniently located right down street. So it was easy to get in touch with the management staff, who were very friendly and accommodating. All in all I highly recommend it!

beautifully appointed, very relaxing, quit and peaceful, really enjoyed my stay
Comfortable and spacious accomodation with nice outdoor sitting area.
Very limited food options close-by, and beach is under-whelming. Constantly barking dogs in the apartment above was a big annoyance at night.
We enjoyed our short stay In Los Almendros. The condo was comfortable, clean and very well maintained. There was a pool located right in front of your condo and the property offered beach access as well as located very near Father Roosters. The owner was easy to work with and the check in process was a breeze. Would stay here again.
Happy we got to stay here!
We stayed here in June 2017 and we were looking forward to returning as we drove away. All the comforts of home are there. The scenary is beautiful and the snorkling was excellent. We arrived earlier than expected. They had the condo cleaned quickly, so we could get in. Stephanie in the office also quickly put together a last second snorkle trip. It was amazing, we saw a giant sting ray, puffer fish, octapus, lots of other fish. We are greatful for the condo staff Stephanie really took care of us. We were there only one night and wished we could stay more! The area itself is gorgeous and unspoiled yet anything you may need is close by. The property is very clean and well kept and the layout is perfect for a family vacation! Thank you!
