Two-course breakfasts, all-day salads and snacks (calamari, hummus) and filling farm- and sea-to-table dinners are served in Castillo’s Kitchen. Chef Pablo draws on his deep knowledge of Costa Rican cuisine and the regional produce and seafood, personally selecting much of it himself. Expect a mix of international and American flavors, alongside Tico staples.


The hotel's spa room is set in a lush garden and tempts with an impressive array of treatments. Rejuvenate mind and body with a Jungle Rub, a luxurious chocolate wrap or a cleansing facial, or feel your stresses melt away with a Swedish massage.


Ojochal sits roughly 25 minutes from the surfing waves at Dominical, 15 minutes from Uvita’s "Whale’s Tail," eight minutes from the sea caves at Playa Ventanas and five minutes from the turtle reserve at Playa Tortuga. Corcovado Park, the Nauyaca Waterfalls and Isla del Caño are also nearby. The staff will happily arrange whale watching, kayaking, zip lining, deep-sea fishing and other excursions, as well as accompany you to the five-minutes-away private island and its sandy beach, in certain seasons.
