My partner and I are in Costa Rica for our first visit this year, and this was one of our highlights. We spent a few nights, including Christmas, at this small and beautiful hotel. It is firstly in a very beautiful spot, at the southern end of the mid-Pacific coast. The nearby beaches are fine and almost empty. The hotel...

I signed up for TripAdvisor simply so I could leave this review. Alma de Ojochal helped my friend and I create some of the most amazing memories of our recent trip to Costa Rica. The owners, John and Janet, were always so helpful and attentive - not to mention their sincere love and respect for the country we were in....

Wow, thank you so much for such a wonderful review. I looked over at John as he read it aloud and actually saw him shed a tear as his voice crackled. Having a review such as this James makes those times running a business in the jungle all worth it. We hope to see you two back again soon....Alma would...

Tucked away on a ridge with a view of the forest and ocean from each room with the valley and mountains behind, this gem boutique hotel is a great space for those who are looking for ambiance within the heart of this location in the Southern Zone.

This was our second stop in our 2 week tour of the southern region. The Alma has it all, superior rooms, great food and nightly entertainment. Our room had a large deck to enjoy the sunsets.

Best one night stay the entire trip. I didn't want to leave. John and Janet are so welcoming. The place is immaculate. Food is fantastic. Entertainment was pretty good too! I had one of the best coconut curries I've ever had, and the bar is well stocked and a super fun hang. Nice, attentive staff. Lovely, seemingly brand new facilities...

Stayed here one night but wanted to stay a week. Woke in the morning and sat just outside my room on the private terrace. Couldn’t stop gazing at the views of the jungle and ocean with humming birds buzzing by and toucans in the distance. Get my room ready I’m coming back.

We came one night for the live music & dinner, and liked it so much that we booked a hotel room for the next night. Beautiful property, wonderful ocean view, great hosts. It was great fun to enjoy dinner and the music, then just walk over to the hotel room and spend the night. In the morning we relaxed on...
