There is no possible way to utter the words that will convey how perfect this hotel was. My family and I were doing the UNTHINKABLE in Costa Rica during the Christmas Holidays, we were traveling open-ended and winging it from one end of Costa Rica to the other. We booked this hotel because it just so happened that the presidential suite was the only thing left in the entire area. IT WAS NOT A MISTAKE. We felt like we had come to our second home and our staff was waiting for us at the door. NO I AM NOT KIDDING. Our days there were simply sublime. We commented over and over again how fantastic this would be for a 'girls' getaway. There are so many fantastic things that happened to us, but my favorite ... we were driving around checking local website to find a place to eat. Everything was closed. We found out that El Castillo also serves dinner. NOT KIDDING .. one of the best meals we had the entire time. Certainly ... absolutely 100% the best wine in country. Making my mouth water just thinking about it. We all became friends with the hotel kitty. "Monster" who is so cute and drinks the pool water. I have been all around the world, and I can only say that I was made to feel as though this was my personal home. I would recommend. I cried when I left. I wanted to live there permanently. There is so much more to say. I could write an entire book. I plan to return. OH did I mention the coffee. PLENTY OF high grade Costa coffee. I personally drank almost the whole pot, it was so delicious. Please go. You will love it.
