Hotel Chantel is a great place, located in the hills in Playa del Coco, it provides great views of the area. It's clean and close to pretty much everything. Don't forget to check out the rooftop restaurant and lounge area!

Extremely nice hosts and a view thats second to none in the area. Just off the crowded path of Playa del Coco and situated on a hill. Road to hotel is a bit rough and signs are "adequate". Free breakfast and WIFI are a plus. Would certainly stay there again.

This hotel has the MOST amazing views, they are truly breathtaking. The view from the top floor, where the restaurant is, is just stunning. One evening my husband and I brought a bottle of wine from town and enjoyed the sunset up there. I believe they are a relatively new hotel, yet everyone was extremely helpful and really went out...

This is a very nice hotel with a gorgeous view and nice rooms. There are a few areas that they need to improve in order for me to rate them excellent. Simple things that didn't hurt our stay but just bumped them down a notch. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. The kitchen was poorly stocked (no cutting board,... More

An extraordinary experience, customer service and view. 100% recommended. The 2 bedroom Appartment is perfect for a family and the decoration is moderm and beautiful. Perfect place to rest and also there are significant amount of places that we could go such as Playas del Coco, Playa Hermosa, Cafe de Playa Beach club, among others.

This hotel is situated at the top of a high hill and the view is astounding! The staff treats you like family and answers any questions and goes out of their way to help. The new owner just took over in June and is fellow Canadian. She visited with us every day and made us feel so welcome. The rooms... More

Rooms very clean. Anita really goes that extra mile to meet your needs. We were there on Valetines Day and there was a lovely heart made out of towels, sprinkled with flower petals and in the center, a very nice box of chocolates. Loved the atmosphere at this hotel. Beautiful view. Fantastic rooftop restaurant/relaxing area. Delicious complimentary breakfast. The pool... More
