This is a most amazing hotel. Quiet, but fascinating. We enjoyed leisurely swims in the pool, breakfasts on the patio and just chilling on our private room balcony. Our hosts John and Janet made us feel right at home, but never cut into our ‘we time’. We can’t wait for our next visit, which will be sooner rather than later.

This was our second stay at Alma de Ojochal. After a great visit last January, we reserved all 5 rooms for the last week in March, and brought 8 friends with us this year. We loved having the entire place to ourselves. The rooms are great, the food wonderful, but what really sets this place apart are the owners (John and Janet) and their staff. Just fantastic, friendly people, that can’t do enough for you. Helped us set up a private ocean sunset cruise, an animal watching river cruise and an ATV 4 hour ride that was a blast. I usually rent a car as I like the freedom to explore by myself. But this year with 8 of us, we hired a van with a driver for 5 of the 7 days - best move ever. Nacho is the driver, and is almost a family member now. Picked us up at the airport for the 4 hour drive to Alma. Drove us to all our activities, and back to the airport to go home. I would give the highest rating possible to Alma and Nacho. We have already reserved the whole hotel for next January.

I arrived in Costa Rica and my AirBNB after a very long travel day feeling tired and hangry. The property manager met me and needed to fix the toilet first. The toilet ended up flooding the apartment and I looking for a new place to stay. I called Alma and the owner, John said come on up. He met me at the entrance with a key, the lights were on in the room and I immediately felt at home. It couldn't be better! The staff is fantastic, the views spectacular, breakfast is prepared every day by Jose, who is an artist in the kitchen and produces masterpieces of deliciousness. The hotel has a restaurant bar called Bamboo Room, which in unfortunately closed now because of Covid, but the owner and his friends started a live radio show 3 nights a week since closing. I love it here, I may never leave!

You just can't get much better than this! I have stayed here as my respite from the jungle many times and it never disappoints! It has always been fabulous but they have also updated some basics - the new bathrooms are dreamy. 5 star and luxury at an great price. Private, all the amenities I could ask for: outdoor sink, fridge, chairs, candles, privacy curtains, free coffee. Inside: brand new bathrooms with soft thick towels, full length mirror, bright lights, and a rock floor shower with rain showerhead that feels fabulous on your feet. The room includes a safe, tv for casting on, the best bed of the trip, clean, comfy and perfection. The attention to details are amazing! Also, I love the pool area! Small and boutique-y. Rooms 5 & 6 are worth the extra space but not necessary as the others are spacious enough. 5 &6 are just special and very private.

We just returned from a four night stay at La Alma de Ojochal. The rooms were comfortable and private. The bed was heavenly! The newly remodeled bathrooms are gorgeous. And then there’s.....the PATIO. It is large and the view is incredible. We were serenaded by toucans and enjoyed the raucous vocalizations of scarlet macaws along with a variety of other birds! We loved sitting out on the balcony during rain storms in the afternoons and evenings. So relaxing and peaceful! We enjoyed a live show with Ken and John as well as a live show with Shorty Hills. John is an outstanding host.....kind, friendly, and helpful! We enjoyed visiting with him. José provided an outstanding breakfast and Alan ensured we were well taken care of. Thank you John, Janet and staff for allowing us to visit this amazing property....it is our home away from home in the southern zone. ❤️
