Myself and our friends stayed at Hotel Chantel and we're very pleased with everything from the customer service at the front desk to the food in the rooftop restaurant. Kelly the front desk girl not only spoke perfect English but was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the view was great. The rooftop restaurant... More

We stay there only one night as we were transiting out of Costa Rica. So for us it was a good deal. The road to access the hotel is clearly indicated so you can't get lost. At the reception , we were very well treated and our room was ready. The room are a bit on the small side but... More

The views, the views, the views! So pretty, very clean, everyone was so helpful and friendly. And the food was amazing. Very close to town for organized activities and shopping, and the loveliest beach I've ever seen. I wish I'd stayed longer. Enjoy!

Stayed at this place during the last part of our visit to Costa Rica and we couldn't have asked for a nicer way to end the trip. The location is perfect because it is outside the hustle of Coco beach, but close enough to be reached by taxi or car (5-7 mins). Anita is the friendliest hotel owner ever. She's... More

Stunning veiw from every area of the hotel, pool, bar, rooms, and restaurent. Fresh raw oysters and craft beer unique to the area just some of the perks we had in the newly renovated rooftop bar. The owner Anita not only was super friendly but very informative about local things to do and pricing. Kelly at the front desk not... More

Hubby and I stayed for a couple nights early February. Anita's place is beautiful with all the finishing touches you'd expect from a boutique hotel. The view is amazing and Anita is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are kept fairly clean and have anything you could need. Not close to town but the taxi ride is reasonably priced and everyone...

Not only was this a fantastic hotel to relax at the view is stunning. The property is so well run you feel like staying extra days. The local village is a great place to shop and eat plenty of good bars. The hotel is close to the airport and no need to worry about the horrible roads that you meet... More

My sister and I stayed here on our last night in Costa Rica, in Playas Del Coco. When people said a hotel tucked away in the mountains, they mean it! This hidden gem was at the top of a mountain with a breathtaking view. It was a perfect place to end our week in CR. The complimentary breakfast was excellent,... More

Although I did not stay the night at Hotel Chantel, I went there one evening last week for dinner. It was the BEST dinner of my entire vacation. The Tuna Nachos were OUT OF THIS WORLD! The service was fantastic - the gentlemen were friendly, accommodating & the food was again, amazing. The atmosphere was hard to beat. Elegant, simple,... More
