Outside the very touristic La Fortuna, El Castillo is a very little pueblo. At Las Tucanes, we almost lived with Fanny and his family and we like it! The room was big with a little kitchen. We can sat on our balcony and check at the Arenal volcano. The typical breakfast was include and we like it! In front of...

This place was a great value. The roomw were clean, the woman who runs it really nice, and very accommodating. The apartments (more than rooms) have a coffee maker and sink, and are very spacious. The view fabulous and, best of all, the town of El Castillo is really laid back and much more quaint and off the beaten track...

A great stay in Castillo with a beautiful view on Arenal volcano. The family that runs the 3 rooms is so kind and nice and they are very helpful if you need any suggestions for trips around. The rooms are very big and clean with separate bathrooms and shower and some kitchen facilities too; what I really loved during our...

My wife and I stayed here for one night and wish we had been able to stay for significantly longer. The family running the cabins is extremely sweet and detail-oriented. The place is immaculate, affords an excellent view of Arenal Volcano (when not obscured by clouds), and gives you easy access to some of the tour offerings of El Castillo.

We stayed 2 nights in Dec 2012. The cabinas are very basic but clean. The views are magnificent but requires about 9 km drive on a very rough unpaved road and about 25 km from La Fortuna. Breakfast is Ok and there is no wi-fi access.

We stayed one night in September 2012 and it was great. Friendly owners, very large clean rooms with coffee maker and hot water. To reach El Castillo you need a ride over an unpaved road but once you are there you will enjoy the great views over the volcano. This place is very quiet, no noise, only birds waking you...

We stayed at Cabinas Los Tucanes for two nights around the 20th of March, 2012. We wish we could have stayed longer: this place was really our best "find" during our 12 day CR vacation. As others have experienced, we too tried to get in at Essence farther up the hill, but they were booked for the night and called...

A charming place in a quiet, out-of-the way town. Fanier serves an excellent breakfast in a tiny porch looking over the volcano for a very reasonable $5. The access road to El Castillo is great fun to drive if like me you enjoy driving fast down dirt roads!

We were here 3 nights. Great location with view on the Arenal :) Large clean rooms and excellent breakfast. First a fruit plate and then a plate of egg, bread, rice and fried banana. The woman has great tips and also makes the reservations. 20 meters away is a bar / restaurant with a terrace with view on the Arenal...
