What People are Saying About El Castillo

We loved staying at El Castillo, it’s gorgeous and the staff is made up of genuinely nice people. We stayed in one of the spa rooms and liked having our own space, but enjoyed hanging out by the pool having drinks also. The French toast is the best I’ve ever had, and we enjoyed both dinners there. The view is amazing!

BOOK IT! Don’t over think it. Amazing. What an amazing hotel and experience. We spent 3 nights here and would have stayed more if we weren’t meeting friends in another town.

Beautiful hotel and wonderful staff! We visited Costa Rica in June 2022. There were 5 couples in our group and we had the main house to ourselves. The food was delicious and the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. We want to go back! El Castillo is beautiful and there was lots to do that the hotel arranged for us including kayaking, ATVs, zip lining, and dining. 5 stars easily!
