I have nothing but wonderful things about this little hotel. It has amazing views, rooms are clean and comfortable. The balcony is fantastic, the views make for unbelievable sunsets. Even the show pressure is better than my own home! What makes this hotel even better, is the owners and staff! So friendly and make you feel right at home...plus they...

My wife and I had the luck to book this gem of a place for a night on our way from Drake's Bay to Manuel Antonio. We really wish we could have stayed longer. The place was quiet and relaxing with an excellent restaurant attached and a lovely terrace with a pool. There's only a few rooms so it can't...

We stopped here for a night on our drive from Arenal to Matapalo - was much more luxurious than we had anticipated - very reasonable pricing for a delightful little retreat. The rooms are beautiful and spacious with gorgeous views of the area. The restaurant food was great and good wine too!

We stayed here for four nights during a tour of Costa Rica. Easily the most fun place of all we stayed at; the view from the breakfast patio is out of this world. The rooms are not on the large side, but there is a very large balcony with kitchenette and seating to make up for it. Very clean throughout....

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and liked it very much, especially for its familiar atmosphere. It's away from everything, so it is a must to have a car to get anywhere. Our room was very small, clean and it was difficult to store our luggage, but the terrace was spacious with a fridge and nice views over...

We are enjoying a week on the Ojochal area and are repeat visitors to the Alma. Beautiful grounds, spacious room with a private balcony and gorgeous view of the Pacific and spectacular sunsets. Room and pool are clean. Daily breakfasts yummy. Service is top notch, and staff are friendly and helpful. Definitely will return.
