What a wonderful hilltop hotel. Spent three nights exploring the area and could not have picked a better place. Anita, the owner, and her staff were fantastic. The hotel is a five minute drive to Playas Del Coco and the views were fantastic. After a day of exploring it was great to come back and sit at the roof top... More

This hilltop hotel is a modest well situated Jem with a 360' view. Top of the world vistas of the coast lines of two countries can be seen from all the rooms and especially the penthouse lounge that offers the best Caesar's south of the Canadian border and local cuisine as well as a proper Beef Burger are offered.

Our family recently stayed at Hotel Chantel. It was one of our very best family vacations! The staff were amazing and were always available to assist. The view was over the top… I loved looking down on Coco beach and all the boats. I enjoyed the howler monkeys in the morning and watching a flock of green parrots pass by... More

Staying a beautiful three nights at the immaculate Hotel Chantel in Playas Del Coco made my trip to Costa Rica an experience I will never forget. The stunning Mediterranean decor along with the location high-up in the hills designed an atmosphere for a king and queen! Our view was breathtaking overlooking the town and stunning beach, not to mention the... More

We stayed at the Hotel Chantel the night before we departed since it is only a 20 min ride to the Liberia Airport. The owner, Anita and her staff were so friendly and accommodating, it was so nice having them take care of us, they make you feel like family. The king size bed was so comfortable and the shower...

I always recommend staying in Hotel Chantel.. It is very well taken care of and well thought out offering great comfort and service. The owners really bend over backwards in trying to make your stay a unique one while in coco.. The views are spectacular!! The breakfast is as typical as it can get and the restaurant/bar upstairs (lookout) is... More

We reserved a studio at first thinking there was a mini fridge to store wine and beer. Anita advised me that room doesn't have a fridge but she would let us... More

Beautiful views, rooms, superb staff who treat you like family. Nothing is too much trouble. The hotel bosts a lovely roof top bar, lounge and restaurant with views to die for, right across the bay. The location is a long walk into town (don't do it in the afternoons when it's very hot!), but if you pace yourself, it's downhill... More

Stayed here for 4 days in may with a few friends. Although it's a short and cheap taxi ride to downtown coco beach, it is most definitely worth it. The view is beautiful and relaxing an the pool is the perfect size for cooking off. The rooms are perfect size and the bathrooms are huge! It's a very quiet hotel... More

Just returned from Costa Rica yesterday. My friends and I stayed there for about 4-5 days in celebration of one's birthday. We had an awesome time! We stayed at Hotel Chantel. At first, we were weary about our destination when the cab driver turned onto a rocky, not very scenic, dirt road, which later became paved and winding... but once... More
