This place is great with really nice owners, the views are stunning and the private terraces are a super nice space to sit and have a beer.. I had no expectation of nature but spotted a humming bird in the garden, watched the white faces while eating breakfast. This is the only place where we saw a sloth. Alan is super nice and really happy to show guests what he spots in the trees ❤️

This hotel blew all our expectations out of the water. Beautiful grounds, romantic elegant rooms and lovely staff eager to help and make you feel right at home. The owners, Janet and John are beyond hospitable and were such a pleasure to have around. Alma de Ojochal is perfectly located for everything you could need/want in Costa Rica. Delicious restaurants, exciting activities, beautiful beaches. Whatever your heart desires. The Bamboo Room (the hotel’s restaurant) was closed while we visited but we were able to have a sneak peek and one dinner while we there and it was wonderful. Their chef, Geiner, is so wonderfully genuine and his food is absolutely delicious. You will not be disappointed by this hotel!!

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!
