Can't say enough good about this amazing place! For being in such a remote location I was surprised by the quality of the rooms, the food and the atmosphere. I had one of the best meals I've ever had served while overlooking the pristine beach and jungle of Pavones. Tasia, the manaager, is amazing and was attentive to every detail... More

The grounds are beautiful, the food is great and the staff is so accommodating and kind. Tasia was such a great help. Our kids enjoyed their fried banana-cookie-ice cream dessert. We will definitely be back.

My husband and I retired to Dominical, Costa Rica in 2008. Our daughter and her husband live in Pavones, so we visit frequently. This time we had a family member visiting who wanted to see Pavones, so we booked the suite with 2 bedrooms for one night. It truly is The Castle of Pavones! The room was large and comfortable...

This is by far the best place to stay in Pavones! You can actually drink the water out of the tap, the food is amazing, and the rooms and views spectacular! And being just a 5-min walk from the point, surfers should definitely consider sharing a room here! We were in the Aves with our 2 kids and did not... More

If you want luxury in Pavones (not easy to find) then this is the spot. Exceptional rooms and service prevail. Todd the proprietor could not have been more helpful and the staff were friendly and keen to help in any way. The rooftop terrace has to be seen to be believed and the plethora of wildlife surrounding the hotel is... More

A spectacular place. I'm here for business and pleasure and stayed here at the recommendation of a friend. I couldn't thank him enough. The proprietor, Todd, and his wife, Maryanne, are first class people. They couldn't have been more friendly and were always asking if they could do anything for me. The rooms are superb and the meals beyond excellent.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights before Christmas. It is a beautiful building that sits on a hill overlooking the gulf in what seems to be about the middle of Pavones. We originally had booked the mezzanine room thinking it would have the best view but as it turns out all the rooms have fairly equal views. The rooms are... More
