Royal stay at “ the castle”
If you are looking for a small boutique hotel with amazing ocean views, a beautiful infinity pool, unbelievable service, excellent breakfasts, dinners and cocktails, this is the “castle” for you. Ojochal is a small and spread out community but offers a peaceful location on the Costanera Sur convenient to many beaches, waterfalls, and zip lining and also places you within easy drives of Dominical, Uvita, Manuel Antonio and is just an hour and a half easy drive to Jaco. There are dozens of excellent restaurants in the area and even a bit of nightlife with a great bar (plus good bands) directly up the road from the hotel. The only negative I can say is for the next month there is a little bit of construction noise as the hotel adds two freestanding casitas but it honestly was minimal. And a TV in the room would have been appreciated at times. But there was great WiFi. And excellent AC! The personable staff, chef and bartenders at the hotel go way out of their way to make you feel like royalty. Wish we were back eating those delicious breakfasts with the unparalleled view! Talk about Pura Vida!

Gorgeous Views, Excellent Staff, Felt Pampered
We had one night open on our Costa Rican adventure and found this wonderful hotel. We did have a little trouble finding it but once we did we were extremely happy! We were greeted with a welcome drink at the little bar in the lobby which opened onto a beautiful infinity pool with amazing views of the beach/ocean. Our only disappointment was the rainy weather which made for a gloomy day. On a clear sunny day the views must truly be amazing! Before going to our room we ordered a little lunch from the restaurant and sat outside at a poolside table. Very delicious food as well. When we got to our room it was lovely and also had a balcony with chairs to gaze upon the fabulous view as well. It's a very small hotel, which we loved. Most of the guests were gone until early evening when they returned from excursions. Quite a fun and lively crowd at the bar before dinner. We were lazy in the morning so by the time we went down for breakfast we were alone and felt very pampered and served a wonderful huge breakfast. Everything delicious and fresh! Tho our stay was short it was wonderful....many thanks to all the staff for making us feel so special!

Don't miss out on this.
Absolutely Amazing. The view, the suite, the service, the food. It was all fantastic. It's like staying in a private home with lots of great people taking care of you every minute of the day.

Very nice upscale hotel
If you are tired of checking for moist and smelly pillows in this humid climate and if you can treat yourself you something more pricey for a while, i doubt you will be disappointed here. This little boutique hotel comes with style, designer elements, great ocean view, beautiful pool area and great attention and service from the dedicated staff. We were lucky to get one of the larger rooms and felt like royals. Beautiful comfortable bed. A couple of (i believe fair) negatives to point out for a hotel in this price segment are: the lack of tv in the room and a not as fancy or filling breakfast as you might expect. The proximity to the Costanera road might disturb some, but we had a fairly quiet night.
