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.

We stayed at Hotel Chantel on our last night in Costa Rica. Little did we know we ended up saving the best for last!!! The staff and owner were extremely friendly. Spent some time in the pool relaxing while enjoying the amazing views the property has to offer. The hotel is a short ride into town which made it very... More

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
