If you have money to spend, if you do not afraid to travel to Central America, if you like slow path days, lying in a lounge in front of a pool, enjoy a cocktail and a picturesque view how the sea merges with the sky on the horizon, El Castillo is a perfect fit for you. We had a long trip from San Salvador to Panama city and a day in El Castillo was one of the days when we actually were fully relaxed. We booked a Garden view king room and were upgraded to an Ocean view king room for absolutely free. The hotel is not a big one, it has no more than 20 rooms and guys take care about their guests properly. Personnel is extremely polite and hospitable.
We liked everything except price. However, I would not say that the hotel if such caliber is overpriced. The hotel is located on a hill. If you travel by bus, then be prepared to climb up for 300 meters from the bus stop. Anyway the view from the hotel pays you back when you are swimming in the pool.
great service, great pool, great lobby and dining room, delicious breakfast and dinner
Excellent hosts. Excellent staff. Felt like we were staying with friends in a beautiful house with great service. Amazing view. Total relaxation.
Wi-Fi was not working. Able to get occasional hot spots. Positive point to this is that it forced us to disconnect and really relax.
Jose was absolutely wonderful. I arrived a day early and at noon. He was so kind and accommodating. The service was superb and the view was breath taking.
My son loved the hotel. However he was not pleased with wifi. Also, we had the suite, and the pull out couch was not comfortable even for an 18 year old boy.
Food and service were outstanding.
Bathrooms could use a little updating
The ocean view, staff, location, food
No tv on rooms, poor wifi, bad a/c
The architecture and furnishings and gardens are world class ...views too. Just beautiful!!!!
Food was very good, but not great. Service was excellent!
The staff were incredible, the property and views amazing
The beds were pretty hard
There is a breathtaking view of the pool, river and ocean as you walk in the front door. The dining room, bar, central lounge and upstairs rooms all share the view - totally amazing. A crowd gathers to watch the sunset each evening - a must see. Then Chef Russell serves an artful arrangement of fresh, delicious food. Breakfasts are also great - as were all of the staff.
Nothing not to like.
The stunning view. Small boutique hotel.
Not enough lounge chairs at pool.
Best hotel in Costa Rica, view is to die for!!
Leaving this heavenly hotel
This place is heaven!! We stayed here for 5 nights and the people of El Castillo made our stay so pleasant that we never wanted to leave this place!! The staff is great and fun to be around with, the chef of their restaurant absolutely top ( he makes everything on the menu fresh every day, even the pasta and deserts are homemade every day) They arranged all the trips and reservations for us and their recommendations were super. But one thing is absolutely priceless and we will never forget this: THE VIEW.
Nothing, next year we book here again, but then much longer. There is no better place to stay in Costa Rica!
Beautiful view, very nice staff, excellent local breakfast, best hotel we stayed at in Costa Rica
Air Condition quite noisy
Beautiful place above the sea Boutique hotel atmosphere Tasty food
During heavy rain there occure a lot of water in the bathroom. Poor wifi signal in the garden room
Everything was wonderful. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed in a relaxed, hospitable and professional manner. The service only got better from there. The property is breathtakingly lovely, one of the places that is actually more beautiful in person than on the pictures on the internet. The food was great, swimming pool was warm, astonishing views of the ocean on one side and dramatic cloud covered mountains on the other.
The only thing I can think of is the fact that we had to check out!
Staff was awesome. Rooms spectacular. Infinity pool was nice and large for laps. Cuisine good and fresh
