Los Almendros de Ocotal: Los Almendros,Playa Ocotal's Best Beachfront Value

Los Almedros has a great beachfront location. The development consists of 43 privately owned 2, 3 and 4 bedroom condos. Each condo is air conditioned and has a fully equipped kitchen. Our family stayed in number 42, the newest 2 bedroom condo in the complex. It has a beautiful ocean view and a fantastic view of a tropical forest directly below the rear patio. The owner provided us a set of binoculars to view several different species of beautiful birds from the rear patio.
The unit is nicely decorated with Latin American artwork and pottery. Unit 42 is the most private condo in the complex. It is the end unit on the front row. There are no condos above or below unit 42...making for a very quiet and peaceful vacation experience. The unit has three separate air conditioners, cable television, iPod player and a dvd player. We had access to a nice selection of dvd movies, and several music CDs...several featuring popular Latin American groups. I definitely recommend Los Almendros. The grounds are beautiful and the swimming pools are clean and relaxing. I'm happy we decided to rent a beachfront unit. It was a great location for our children. Playa Ocotal has a beautiful beach, but it has no restrooms, or markets and has very limited parking. We left our automobile locked in a covered carport and walked 2-3 minutes to the beach. It was nice not having to worry about parking a rental car in an unsecured area.

Los Almendros has a great office staff that speaks English. Nino, the General Manager, recommended some excellent tours… at better prices than were advertised on the internet. The front office has a guest area with a desk top computer that guests can use to check e-mail. The office is also a hot spot with a table where guests can sit and use their own laptop computer.
Father Rooster Restaurant is next door to Los Almendros. It is a rustic beachfront restaurant that serves good food, cold beer, and excellent mixed drinks. My children enjoyed the nachos. I enjoyed the fresh seafood. My husband pigged out on the spicy chicken wings.
Los Almendros is only 5 minutes from the town of Coco. Coco has several super markets, pharmacies, restaurants and souvenir shops.

The view from Los Almendros's main pool is fantastic. It would be a great place to have a small wedding ceremony.
