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. ❤️

We were honored to be Alma Ojochal's first guests since the pandemic. John and Janet received us with open arms (or elbows actually, since we maintained social distancing). We were there for 1 night, but it was fabulous. Each room has a balcony with ocean view. The bed and pillow were extremely comfortable. Pool area was awesome! Looking forward next time to catch one of their live music shows

We spent two wonderful weeks at Alma de Ojochal. The hotel is a dream place. Peaceful, lovely, with an amazing ocean & forest view. This is the place for people searching a restful location and entertaining evenings (few days a week). John is a great and talented singer and keyboard player. The staff is very professional, nice, discrete and pleasant. The premises are very well maintained, full of charming details and very very clean. The owners Janet & John are wonderful people. This hotel is their dream hotel come true made available to their guests. Thanks for all and, for sure, we will come back ! Laurence and Bruno
