We are building a house near Ojochal, and stayed at the Lookout for about 5 nights while we were meeting with designers, etc. The location is perfect - right on the highway near the entrance to the town and very close to several beautiful, quiet beaches. The drive up is typical Costa Rica - 4 wheel drive is recommended! We've stayed in many places across CR and have never been at one with a better ocean view - even from our bed in the morning! I'm not a bird watcher, but I couldn't help noticing the toucans and scarlet macaws while eating breakfast. Steve and Carol, the owners, were looking after the place while the managers were away. They were wonderful - very friendly and good company. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome. At the end of our days we felt like we were coming home to family. The restaurant was not open while we were there, but I understood that was temporary pending the managers return and more staff to be hired. Luckily there are many nice European as well as Tico restaurants nearby - so we didn't suffer! Carol was quick to offer to make reservations for us and even ordered take-out to be delivered one rainy night when no one felt like going out. We look forward to our next visit.
