Beautiful spot. May need a 4x4 during the rain season because if the steep dirty road. The best place to stay in the area. Highly recommend. Staff is kind and helpful. Room is comfortable and spacious. Everything well maintained.

Thanks Rodrigo for your review. Greatly appreciate it, yes we do sit up on a hill so having use of a quad or vehicle is ideal. Thanks for the kind words on our staff and hotel. We do work hard to keep everything looking it's best here in the jungle. Be safe in your travels. Pura Vida M&J

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and enjoyed the place very much! The reason I wouldn't go back there because the hotel is located at the top of a pretty steep hill and going up and down couple of times a day for lunch and dinner, when it's either blistering hot and muggy or rainy is not much fun, unless you have a car or ATV. It is a gravel road and when you going out after dark, you have to make sure that you have a flashlight because there are no street lights and it's pitch dark. Otherwise hotel is quite lovely and the stuff is friendly and helpful.

Hello Alina, thank you for your review. Yes we are up on a hill which gives our little place in paradise it's wonderful views. There are many that do rent vehicles or ATV's while here. Thanks for complimenting our staff and our lovely hotel. Pavones has so much to offer so think about returning to see the beautiful wildlife, waterfall tours, chocolate making classes, horseback riding, and the world class surfing that goes on here.

The Castillo is hands down the best place to stay in Pavones. You get all the amenities you'd expect from a luxury b&b while still experiencing the unique surroundings. I suggest the Aves room, two of its walls are glass and surrounded by jungle. It is truly one of a kind!

First off I'd like to say this place was amazing! Great room with a beautiful view . The staff is very friendly. No complaints at all !
However it is little ways sways from the surf So if your planning to stay there make sure you have your own transportation.
Other than that I give it a 5 star rating

Thanks Jerry for the Review, we greatly appreciate it. Glad you enjoyed your stay, yes it is about a 7-8 minute walk down our hill to the famous Pavones surf point. We do have an outdoor shower to rinse yourself and board off. Look forward to when you return. Pura Vida M&J

Great place to stay... just far enough from town and surf that you feel immersed in nature, but close enough to be able to walk (though note, it's a 10 minute walk, including a large hill). Staff very friendly. Breakfast was a bit on the small side (for surfers with large appetites), but not bad. Air conditioning didn't work well, but management made every effort to fix it and even provided a discount for our troubles. I'm sure it's fixed by now! I will certainly be returning. Thanks Michael!

Hello Eric,

Thanks for the review. We do our best to keep up with all maintenance around the Castillo. Just happens your Suite needed the A/C repaired after you arrived. It is a few hour drive for our technician to come. He came out following day and fixed it. We are about a 7-10 minute walk to the beach, it is up hill (that's how we get our beautiful views). Our breakfast includes fresh fruit, coffee/tea, fresh fruit juice, and a choice of an entree (i.e.. gallo pinto, banana pancakes, French toast, omellete, eggs and toast). Sorry you felt it was not enough. You can purchase another serving if you choose too. Again we thank you for the review and would love to have you come visit again. Pura Vida M&J
