Reviewed 14 October 2017

We loved this place, spent 3 nights, and will definitely visit again. Just 5 rooms, but the hotel is on a ridge with just incredible dreamy views: on the one side the ocean, on the other an imposing jungly ridge rising Lost World-like in the distance with hilly scenery before. Hard to describe, but breathtaking. Small pool very nice, as also the breakfast area. The Bamboo room, the restaurant with live music, is definitely part of the attraction. Took mountain bike along, fun place to explore from.

Very nice clean hotel with amazing views. Extremely nice and attentive staff took great care of us. The restaurant and music venue in the property is just amazing. This place is one of a kind, a must see.

We stayed two nights and it was great! The chef made gluten free fish and chips for Tammy and they were super tasty maybe a new menu option. Entertainment at the Bamboo room was awesome, Walter and John are great team playing good music and having fun on stage.

I love this place. It is a small boutique hotel with excellent rooms, linens, bathrooms and views. The owners are so nice and hospitable. The staff is incredibly friendly and the place is immaculately clean. We love the attached Bamboo Room restaurant with live music. The area of Ojochal is such a nice community and you can tell by the local patrons that they really have something special. We have been going to the Ojochal area for almost twenty years and have stayed in many hotels in the area. From now on, Alma is the place for us!

Room Tip: All rooms are good. I think the lower suites might have larger beds.

This was such a great place. The rooms have everything you need including a great view and very clean.

The bamboo room (the restaurant at the hotel) was awesome. Good live music and good food.

The owner was super nice, hospitable and super helpful. Just downright good people.


I dig what they're doing here. Highly recommend
