We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and liked it very much, especially for its familiar atmosphere. It's away from everything, so it is a must to have a car to get anywhere. Our room was very small, clean and it was difficult to store our luggage, but the terrace was spacious with a fridge and nice views over...

We are enjoying a week on the Ojochal area and are repeat visitors to the Alma. Beautiful grounds, spacious room with a private balcony and gorgeous view of the Pacific and spectacular sunsets. Room and pool are clean. Daily breakfasts yummy. Service is top notch, and staff are friendly and helpful. Definitely will return.

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.
