The staff were very accommodating and friendly! They helped my daughter and I rent a car and recommended beautiful places to visit! The hotel has wonderful decor, superb food with views and fun entertainment! We took a dip in the inviting pool every afternoon to wind down! We especially loved the hotel cat Boo who is super sweet!

We've stayed here twice and I look forward to every future visit!!! Alma de Ojochal is a true gem in a beautiful place! The rooms are very clean and comfortable with spectacular views! I could spend days in their pool looking out over the ocean and lush green mountains! The restaurant serves great food and the live music is amazing!...

Both room and bathroom are fairly big. The shower has sufficient hot water and water pressure. The ac is nice. Staff is helpful but the owner is not too familiar with the area. The room has a wonderful view of the ocean. Good breakfast. We were originally worried that the restaurant /bar would be noisy at night because it was...

I highly recommend this hotel. Nestled on a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean, one can't ask for a more relaxing and comfortable setting. The layout maximizes the view and gives guests plenty of privacy. The owners, John and Janet, are super friendly and the staff is top notch. My favorite aspect is that Ojochal is far enough from the bigger...

We chose this hotel based on the great reviews on TripAdvisor and we certainly weren't disappointed. Its a very small hotel with only 5 rooms which all have great views. You also get fantastic views from the very nice pool and while having breakfast. We were really attracted to this place due to the live music in the restaurant which...

What a great night of entertainment at the Bamboo Room. Get there to watch the sunset and have a cocktail. Dinner of Fish and Chips was excellent. But the best was the entertainment on Saturday night. Excellent musicianship; great sound; and watched the hockey game to boot! Great night at the Bamboo in CR.

What a fantastic place! I've been all over the world and this hotel is among the best. Stunning location and the food was amazing. The hosts and the staff were all so helpful and welcoming. The perfect place for complete relaxation. The nightly entertainment was a bonus. The nearby beaches are beautiful and uncrowded. Will definitely return.

Our second trip to CR, and this place is awesome! The bamboo room is huge fun. John and Janet are the perfect hosts! We have travelled all over the world, this was the first place we felt like we were with family! The room views are tremendous and sitting on the deck outside the room looking over the morning on...

Loved Alma! Quiet and private and away from the hustle and bustle but close to so many things we wanted to see. We stayed a week and wished we could have stayed for 2. After a long day exploring fabulous waterfalls we could come home, take a dip in the pool and then head to the restaurant for great food...

We spent 4 nights here and really enjoyed it. The rooms are basic, but comfortable, and they have a big balcony with sink, refrigerator and a beautiful view of the ocean and breaking waves. The pool area is also lovely and it is great to relax there after being out and about. The Canadian hosts, John and Janet, are very...
