We spent 5 nights here. We drove down from San Jose airport. Quite easy to find just look for the purple Bamboo Room signs. The location is stunning and the hotel itself is very cute. We had a very large downstairs room (suite) with a large bed, sofa bed and good A/C. It had a fantastic ocean view and was...

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying a week at Alma de Ojochal. We loved every minute. Clean, stylish and comfortable room to call home. Wonderful breakfast each morning to start our day. And the live music every evening in the Bamboo room to accompany our drinks and dinner each evening was just perfect! The hotel sits on...

We just had the most amazing time at this tropical gem. The stylish rooms are decorated with tasteful elegance and the grounds are covered with beautiful tropical plants and flowers. The staff are outstanding and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and well taken care of. The location has to be one of the best...

We arrived to Alma not really knowing what to expect. This is a lovely 5 room hotel, extremely well maintained. We parked our vehicle and proceeded past the pool to find out if we could register. We were taken to our room which had a magnificent view! The balcony off our room was about the same size of our room!...

My daughter and I spent two nights at Alma March 17-19. This was the first stop of many as we toured around Costa Rica. This hotel was by far our favourite and we wished we had spent more time here. So much so, we are planning another trip back in January. Why we loved it... - the owners John and...

Thank you so much for your review! It was truly our pleasure to host you and your daughter....loved that she joined John on stage for her special performance!

In terms of the location, THE PERFECT Ocean View for Sunset... Nothing else needs to be said. With regard to the menu, everything looked amazing. We had the Rotisserie chicken, juicy, fresh, tasty and full of flavour. The house coleslaw was superb, as were the hand cut fries. The live music really made the night, and the service was wonderful!...

We had a great time at Alma. Wish we could have stayed longer. Very nicely done hotel, with great views, and great birding. Spacious rooms with a nice balcony with wet bar, and beautiful ocean views. The grounds are very nice and the pool is awesome and spotless. The best part though, is the Bamboo Room. Great food, wonderful live...

5 room boutique place with great views to the Pacific Ocean and forest, food is very good and the musician (hotel owner) is very good as well! One night a large crowd of retirees showed up at the "Bamboo Room" bar, restaurant and music hall! Patsy and I will get back some time again!

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon the Alma hotel and Bamboo Room while exploring the area and were pleasantly surprised. It is so awesome! The rooms are modern and sleek, all with beautifully furnished balconies overlooking amazing ocean views, and with AC and ceiling fans. Also, they serve a fantastic breakfast every morning, complete with fresh fruit. We had banana...
