El Castillo is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! We recently went to Costa Rica in search for property to build a future retirement home and by chance we landed at the El Castillo. Lucky us!! Scott and Russell (our hosts) have done a fabulous job renovating this lovely spanish style boutique hotel! There was a stunning view of both mountain and ocean from our suite balconies. Everything was very clean and so comfortable...they made sure we were well taken care of. I truly did not want to leave. My favorite spot was the gorgeous open living room to the infinity pool that lines up perfectly with the South Pacific ocean...the sunsets were absolutely surreal! We had dinner at the Azul restaurant in the hotel every evening. The food was truly fabulous! I love Russell's homemade hummus, and pastas! He also whipped up great frozen mojitos! Local expats stopped by in the evening for drinks and sunset conversation, so we were able to make lots of new life-long friends at the El Castillo. It felt like we were leaving family when we had to say goodbye. We definitely will stay there again (and again) while we build our new retirement home hopefully close by!
