  • Disliked: Staff & service

Great views from our wonderful room. The room was lovely, although the bathroom towels were full of holes 😩. The food was average and I just felt that the staff were not attentive enough. Sadly I wouldn’t recommend this place to my friends .

    El Castillo was fantastic!

    We had an amazing 5 nights at El Castillo. The staff—especially Daniel and Stephanie were always friendly and very helpful. El Castillo is a good central location for exploring the Costa Ballena and Corcovado Park down on the Osa Peninsula. Incredible views, great room! Can’t say enough.
