The owners are very personable and laid back. The entire venue is decorated beautifully and well kept by the pleasant staff members. Great experience, and I highly recommend anyone staying in the area to make sure to check them out. Into music? There is a restaurant bar directly attached,across the pool. Decently priced, and the food is delicious

We knew from our arrival that this was a special place. After parking, we walked to the reception area and were greeted by Juan Carlo. He was incredibly courteous, gracious, pleasant, and welcoming like we were friends who had come for a visit...everything you wished someone in the hospitality industry was. He also ended up waiting on our table one...

The minute I walked into the Alma I felt at home. Firstly, the view is spectacular. Right from my room I had a magnificent view of mountain and coast all at once. Second, John and Jannet were so accommodating in all areas and whenever we needed them. Their staff, especially Victor and Rocksana, also deserve a standing O for being...

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...
