This place is has the best views! Rooms / room service - clean. The one thing I didn't like was the door to ur room is really the sliding door. It's not a prb, but more of a nuisance since u want to have the curtains open for some sun light but oh wait, u want ur privacy and ppl... More

Hotel Chantel was charming, clean, and a great place to kick-start our Costa Rican adventure. Anita was lovely and accommodating and the restaurant was out of this world-- the tuna poke nachos & watermelon mojito's will change your life!

We wanted to stay close to the airport for our last few days but couldn't stand the thought of staying in an airport hotel. We are so glad we chose this cute little hotel to spend the weekend prior to leaving. It's about 25 minutes from Liberia Airport and just far enough away from the main tourist area of Coco.... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Chantel. The room was clean, and the staff were very friendly. The manager, Anita, was very sweet and helpful. She knows the locals well and helped us plan our travel to Nicaragua. The hotel is close to Coco Beach but not too close - offering a peaceful, beautiful view of the surrounding hills... More

The staff at the restaurant were great and knowledgeable about the menu. The utensils and plates were also very clean which is one of my hang ups.The... More

Hotel Chantel has a lot to offer: beautiful views, a peaceful, friendly atmosphere and most important of all, an unflappable "can do" attitude. Need an extra early breakfast to make a dive trip to Catalina or Bats Islands, or an early land tour? No problem. Anita was in the restaurant personally bright and early every day to make sure everything... More

My wife and I recently had a 2-night stay and enjoyed the accomodations/location. The check-in process was easy (had a reservation) with the friendly receptionist and found the room to meet expectations given the general area/cost of accomodations. Toiletries, clean linens & towels were provided and of good quality. I met the owner (expat American) the 2nd day of our... More

We were underwhelmed with the service and the room. In our experience highly rated trip advisor hotels have exceptionally helpful staff that often make great suggestions about activities and local cuisine. This wasn't the case, we felt as if we were an inconvenience to to owner's son and the manager. The room was acceptably clean, but it had ants, which... More

Hats off to Anita, the owner/manager and her staff! We had a queen bed, firm, but we like it that way. Room was very clean with its own sink, toilet and shower. Had TV but we didn't watch much as we were tired after every adventurous day. A free breakfast included 2 eggs, toast, rice and beans, and fresh fruit... More
