Welcome to El Castillo

A Luxury Destination for Adventurous Travelers


There is a reason our nine-room adult-only luxury hotel is named The Castle: The magnificent structure perched 600 feet above the Pacific Ocean has arguably the most dramatic view in all of Costa Rica. Spectacular, yes. Stuffy, no. Our exceptional staff will ensure your vacation is the greatest of your lifetime.


Dine at El Castillo’s own restaurant, Castillo’s Kitchen, a Chef’s Table concept mastering the evolution of Costa Rican cuisine. Experience elements of Costa Rica in every dish in a new and innovative way. Chef Pablo will dazzle you.


Welcome to the jungle and about three percent of the biodiversity on this side of the planet. If you prefer wildlife over nightlife, this is the place for you. Whale watching, snorkeling, hiking, deep-sea fishing, zip lining, surfing, kayaking, beach combing, and sea turtle viewing are all within minutes of El Castillo.

What People are Saying About El Castillo

The view from the pool is extra and the food was amazing. The Chefs came to the table to introduce themselves, explain the menu and gave us great advises. The room was just perfect, exceptional.

Perfect: we had a fabulous stay in El Castillo with my family. First the hotel rooms, pool & views are just amazing, but in addition, the staff is so friendly and arrange the best service you can imagine.

Out of this world: we chose El Castillo to end our 3-week trip to Costa Rica in a little luxury…and what a choice! This place is outstanding. You will have a real “wow” moment when you arrive and see THAT view for the first time.
