This was one of the most unique places I've ever stayed. Large clean rooms with plenty of space to spread out. The views from the top levels are incredible The staff was amazing and went above and beyond to make our stay perfect.

Great place, big and clean rooms. Close to surfing point. Excellent breakfast, hot water, air conditioning, great ocean views, small fridge. Enough room space to keep surfing gear inside the room, even SUP's. Owners very friendly. Wifi & cable TV

I feel like I will never have enough time to write a good enough review. I showed up with my friends late in the afternoon, I asked Tasia, the property manager (I hope I spelled your name right!) where a store was, and she offered to just drive us there. Later, Tasia invited us to an Italian restaurant and drove... More

The Castillo is a beautiful place to stay while in Pavones, which is magical and so wondrous you will have a hard time saying goodbye, I certainly did. I was lucky enough to stay a week here, and I dream of it daily. The customer service is absolutely outstanding, and the views and sights, sounds, smells and energy is ethereal.... More

My wife and I stayed in the Aves room for 7 nights and are now in therapy for separation anxiety. The worst thing about this place is having to leave. The excellent delivery of customer service far exceeded our expectations. The room was literally jaw dropping and I wish I could have had a picture of our reactions when we... More

We stayed three nights, me, my husband and his parents. We choose two spectacular suits, great view and breathless nature around. Tasia, the manager and her child, Suny, are very attentive and kind! The breakfast is great with the burritos super tasty! Is near from the beach and have a river nearby to go tubing! Pavones is a far village... More

Four of us shared a room on a recent surf trip to the area and found it to be clean, comfortable and a great location up on the mountain. The view from the top widow's watch was incredible. The included breakfast was delicious after a morning surf. Atmosphere of the hotel was better than any we found in the area.... More

Great people, beautiful place with scenery and animals to view. Native food with activities for all... Very romantic for couples with epic views! Far drive but worth the epic surf and remote beauty. Thank you for the experience to all the staff!!
