El castillo had an amazing view of the ocean and the best sunsets in ojochal. The location is remote but if your looking to really see costa rica this is the place. Off the beaten path but close to the big cities to do things as well. We suggest renting a car otherwise transportation can be hard and getting around difficult. The staff here wax excellent and set up all our tours for us. The hotel is getting a little outdated but still nice. The owners are renevating in the coming months there plans look amazing we will definitely be back to check it out again. The hotel resturant had good food but I would suggest venturing out into ojochal as well since it is becoming well know for its fine dining. The rooms are nice if a little small and the terrace has great views. They also have an infinity pool which we swam in no one else was around and it was refreshing and relaxing and views again great.
