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!!

Amazing, beautiful, great views, terrific food, so many gorgeous details. We travelled with our group and didn't know exactly what to expect. The staff was professional and took care of us from the start. Each room was different and they were all great. We saw sloths and red scarlet macaws every day. The beach is a 5 min walk away....

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...
