4 of 5 stars Reviewed 8 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

First I wanted to say I debated on giving this property either 4 or 5 stars. It has pretty basic accommodations with not a whole lot in the way of luxury. I say this only so those who are looking for a more upscale house won't be disappointed. The house does have all of the necessities that one would need....

Management response:

Thanks for your Kind Review. Our property is always evolving and the new B&B we are building, should be open by late next year. That is where we will emphasize more luxurious amenities. I will also be living on site full time, so it will be nice to finally get to be the Hostess. I hope you will return again...

We rented this guest house as the second leg on out visit to Costa Rica. Our first 9 days were spent on the beach in the Playa Hermosa area on the Pacific coast. There it was hot and dry. El Castillo was 15 - 18 degrees F cooler, but still very comfortable. This guest house has some pros and cons,...

Management response:

Thanks for your great Review. We have been fighting the county over the main road maintenance for almost a year now, even had the President of the country come to El Castillo, so he could experience it first hand. But alas "There is no money in the budget to fix the road"... Ahh Costa Rica! We do try to upgrade...
