Ama La Vida at The Alma de Ojochal Hotel


About the hotel

The Alma de Ojochal Hotel is a boutique hotel in a lush and laid-back mountain retreat setting. Our mantra here is 'Ama la Vida' or 'Love Life', in sync with the Pura Vida spirit of Costa Rica. At The Alma we live life to the fullest, and we embrace experience, adventure and fun.

Our views looking east to the mountains and west to the Pacific are magical, and the scene is always changing. Look out and see whales on the ocean, turn around and see rainbows in the mist over the jungle peaks. Our unique perch brings us the most refreshing tropical breezes and no two days are ever the same.

Chill by the pool, commune with Toucans or watch a mind-blowing Pacific sunset either at the public restaurant and bar, The Bamboo Room, (January 2016) or from your rooms' large jungle-ocean-view terrace. All of our five rooms feature Pacific views, AC, bright & modern design, UV filtered water, daily cleaning service, and big comfortable beds. We have 3 rooms and 2 suites so we can meet your needs.

The Alma experience is perfect for couples, honeymooners, smaller adult groups, adventurers, beach explorers or chill-seekers and we politely ask that children be over the age of 12 years old.

Get to us easily from the Costanera Highway #34 and our location is perfect to access some truly life-changing adventures. Only minutes from us are canopy-tours, The OSA Peninsula, whales, turtles, dolphins, beaches (Tortuga, Ventanas, Ballena, Hermosa, Uvita, Dominical), surfing, horse-back riding, kayaking, whitewater rafting, deep sea fishing and some of the South's best restaurants!

The Alma Hotel has received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2014 and 2015 for earning consistently great reviews from travelers. We are more than happy to help you plan your stay with us, and whatever adventure suits your fancy, so contact us today and Ama la Vida!
