I stayed at this hotel during "low season;" it should be more aptly called "no season." Everything in Ojochal was closed, including the restaurant and bar at Adelante Hotel. But since I needed to get some work done, there was wifi at the hotel, and no one to disturb me, I didn't mind that the place was dead. I opted for a budget room, which had a not too comfortable bed, but a private bathroom with hot water in the shower. The price was right but I also suspect that it being "low season" or rather "no season," contributed to the very low nightly rate. Warning about the budget rooms: they face the coastal highway and there is a lot of truck noise.
This hotel is owned by a really nice couple from Estonia and they have uniquely decorated it. There are little touches everywhere that give the place a lot of charm. I can imagine that during high season, when the bar, restaurant and pool are open and there is activity going on, this hotel would be a ton of fun. I even imagined it as a perfect setting for group tours.
Ojochal is such a beautiful area of Costa Rica; too bad it is not getting the tourism it deserves. I would suggest that any singles or couples group vacation-type package tours consider the Ojochal region and the Adelante Hotel.
