The bedrooms are very nice and clean. The hotel is located 5 mins from the center so there's not much noise and activity, just the bar at the top. The bar was good also, they had craft beer and some good courses although not very varied. I didn't visit the pool, so i can't tell how is it, but at... More

The best part of this hotel for us was the rooftop restaurant. It has a very small menu but we lucked out with fresh oysters that were amazing. They have a small selection of local craft beers on tap that were excellent. The staff was super friendly and helpful.

We stayed here back in Dec/14 - Jan/15 (over New Year's - sorry for another late review!) with my boyfriend's parents and another couple who are friends of the family. The hotel is a bit of the way out of town, but we knew this in advance and rented a minivan for our group well ahead of time. You can... More

My Husband and myself stayed here last year (sorry just getting around to the review) We were so welcomed by the owners and family. We were given so many great suggestions that this place really made our trip! I will defiantly be back! Great breakfast with view that started our day off right! You can't go wrong with this hotel...

Fantastic, Beautiful, Quiet, Breathtaking Views, 5 Star Food, and Personal Attention-You really never know what you are going to get when you travel, but rest assured, this hotel is an amazing retreat while in Playa De Coco. Easy to find, just make sure you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle, because the roads are steep and dirt part of the... More

This small boutique hotel was the perfect choice to unwind and soak in the view. The hotel amenities were great and everything worked with no issues. Anita the owner was a most gracious host and offered help from unloading our bags to providing valuable insight on tour destinations. I have traveled extensively and I will return again and again. Great... More

The photos of the view were what made me decided to stay here during my recent week in Playas Del Coco. The photos do not lie! Nor do they really do justice. A breathtaking panoramic view! Karina at the front desk was very helpful. As were the rest of the staff. Rooms were clean and the rooftop restaurant was by... More

Our family of 4 needed to book 2 rooms because the smallish rooms only have a double bed but can accommodate a 3rd person on request (they must bring in a cot or crib). Our daughters loved having their own room right next door. The rooms are comfortable, have air conditioning, and the only concern I had was the safe... More

The hotel is on top of a hill and boasts an awesome view from every room. The rooms are very clean and confortable. The staff is really friendly, respectful and willing to acomodate guests. Overall an amazing value and price to quality ratio. The hotel is about a 5-7 min drive to a major super market and about the same... More

The best: an unbeatable view from the room. We spent just one night at Hotel Chantel. The room was small but comfortable, and the service was quite good. Breakfast was ok, although just one option was offered (eggs, toast, coffee, fruit). Wifi kind of sucked (good range, lousy speed). But in general, a very good stay. Well worth it.
