There is no swiming pool, very miss leading We wanted to lay out and get a TAN,no aircontioning, breakfast was horrible,no wi fi or internet in room no contact with outsade world. Customer service was done with no smile The trip on the suv was long bumpy Very expensive to get there. My score from 1 to 10 was , you no what I have written. G O O D Luck...

Great place with great views
A great place with great views. Just pretend the communication tower isn't there! We enjoyed breakfast here each day outside on the deck. We had a few meals here. We enjoyed Howlers down around the road a bit as well. We chartered a boat for the day and had awesome views of the volcano. Didn't catch many fish. 1 to be exact. And that was caught by the boat captain and then the rod handed to me like I was 7 lol. A piece of pineapple! Who knew!! It was a good base for us and we found a hot spring to sit in. There were spider monkeys in the trees behind us! We also went to a waterfall. I can't remember the name. It was a killer climb back up all those stairs though lol. We only had 3 days here and definitely needed more to appreciate everything this area has to offer. The rooms were good. Wish there was a lock box though. I had issues with my door not locking and I get paranoid. They fixed the door. The "pool" was under repair. They said they were turning it into a hot tub which is about the size of it lol. You have to make sure you're the first one in the shower. It could get cold if you're not!! Overall we enjoyed it here and would come back.
Very nice very nice people good spot very close to some attractions.it was nice having a restaurant right there.
This place was great!
Granted the rooms are what you would expect from an off the beaten path hotel in a very small town, but the view !!! The food !!! we loved this place .
The room - adequate, clean, nothing fancy, but hey, we're only sleeping here.
The restaurant - We ate dinner there twice and my compliments to the chef ! The fish was wonderful and my wife said her pasta was some of the best she has had.
Note - The butterfly garden is just up the road. A must see ! There is also a cool skywalk , zipline, tram place down the road. The very small town of Castillo has 2 quaint places for dining or enjoying a beverage . Again nothing fancy, but nothing in Costa Rica is. that's why we like it !
Castillo is small , laid back and easy going. Absolutely wonderful stay !!!
Fantastic views and excellent service.
We were staying in Tamarindo and decided on a day trip to the volcano. We booked Hotel Castillo and upon arrival we were amazed at the views. The service is outstanding and the restaurant is very good and a great value. The room met our needs, clean, comfortable and wonderful views. No frills, basic and clean. Some toliteries provided.Convenient to many attractions. This is a family run establishment and they do a great job.
This is our second time staying here. We love the small town. The hotel has amazing views of the volcano while you dine. Our teens enjoy playing pool and hanging out in the common area after a long day of activities. We definitely recommend this place!
