The Alma de Ojochal is great! I had an amazing time there! The staff is really nice and super accommodating. The view is beautiful! The hotel rooms are comfortable, neat, and orderly. The hotel is in a great location, close to all the tourist attractions in Osa. The Bamboo Room is only a few steps away from the hotel rooms....

With just 5 rooms on the property, you can be assured of attentiveness and friendliness from the management (John/Janet) and staff (Geiner/Roxanna in the kitchen, Victor, Alan, Larry front of house). The property is beautiful, perched on a hill overlooking rainforest and distant ocean. The rooms are large, well pointed and clean and ours has a huge balcony with outdoor...

Our family of three stayed here for one night and had fantastic time. We were hosted by owners John and Janet who along with their staff Victor and Allen made our stay so enjoyable. John and Janet provided great ambiance and evening entertainment. Victor and Allen superb customer service. We were impressed and mesmerised by the beauty of the place.

Superb rooms with fantastic views over the rainforest canopy. If you get up at 5.30 and sit on the balcony you are greeted by a truly spectacular dawn chorus with hundreds of parrots and about ten macaws flying over the forest canopy. Amazing! The birds fly and or perch right up to the balcony and agoutis play on the grass...

In the middle of the jungle you can find surprisingly nice little hotel owned by people with big hearts! Reasonable price, dependable service and breathtaking view to the ocean over the evergreen jungle. Bamboo Room with live music every evening, from country through blues to modern rock. While listening to the music, try tuna tartar! Margaret and Les Bak

There is not much I can say about the Alma that already hasn't been said already, but I just wanted to add how pleasantly surprised I was to find a little 5 room hotel that would go so far out of their way to make sure a solo traveller would be welcomed and look after. They went above and beyond...

The first week of May, my wife and I took a road trip south from Costa Rica’s Flamingo Beach area to Alma de Ojochal, where we spent three nights and four days, including a day trip to Panama, located just one hour further south. The owner’s John and Janet together with the entire staff were cheery, welcoming, helpful and attentive...

We had the pleasure of spending 3 nights in this little hotel. Perfect sunset views, great hospitality, clean and comfortable rooms with AC that worked. It was a great location for day trips to the beach and rainforest. Breakfast by the pool was perfect.
