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

Although a bit daunting to get to, the effort to reach this secluded retreat is well worth it. Chantel & Anita are very accommodating, not just in their lodging, but in their knowledge of the area and willingness to arrange many activities only locals know about. We were fortunate to go just after the high season and had the master... More

Hotel Chantel is located on top of the hill, and the view is incredible. You can see the entire bay of Coco and the sunset view is awesome. The service was so wonderful and the owner and her daughter were so sweet and helpful. They were helpful on a very personal level, and would always get back to us with... More
