Stayed at Castillo Real for five nights after booking a deal on Priceline. Was still quite expensive considering the discount! Brilliant location, close to restaurants and the beach. Unfortunately the week we were in Florida was the coldest weather for years, but we still enjoyed the outdoor whirlpool! We bought one breakfast voucher, food was good for the price and... More

We've stayed in other hotels on St. Augustine Beach, but this is the best choice so far. Although it is not on the beach, it is a one minute walk to the sand. The rooms are clean and nicely sized, and there is a great restaurant where we've now had breakfast, lunch and dinner. Service is gracious and friendly. We... More

The hotel is clean. Conveniently located. It is about 3 min walk to the beach and about 10 min drive to the town. There are some reasonable places to eat at walking distance from the hotel. One thing that I did not like was that the breakfast is not included in the room rate. I think it should be considering... More

This resort hotel was excellent from the time we walked in the door and Lee Ann greeted us. We were just driving along St Augustine Beach and decided to spend the night and walk the beach. The resort looked very clean and inviting. Lee Ann made our stay fun from finding us a ocean view room to recommending a couple... More

We stayed here a few days. The hotel was almost perfect except one thing, but I will get to that at the end. We dined in the restaurant only once and that was for breakfast. The staff and our waitress was pretty nice. The breakfast was good, but they did not have chocolate milk or offer to easily mix up... More

My husband and I were looking for a place close to the beach and the historic area. The location of this hotel met that criteria. The hotel is very clean and staff were helpful and polite. Our room was large and comfortable. Only complaint was how noisy the air conditioner was. When it clicked on you couldn't hear the T.V.... More

We didn't know about this wonderful hotel until we ask locals and they recommended this to us. We stayed here for 4 nights. It is beautiful and the beds are so comfortable. The people are so sweet and the lady who took care of our room her name is Caroline was awesome. Very sweet lady and kept our room very... More

Seriously the nicest place i have ever stayed for the price that close to the beach! Even my picky husband was pleased! My kids loved the pool and the rooms are almost too big! ha ha! It is very clean and nicely kept as being close to the beach can cause a lot of wear. We only stayed one night.... More

Very clean, amazing service and staff. Bed was so comfortable. Enjoyed the in room hot tub, a must have! The shower was huge and water is treated with softner! Love! Room had balcony, view of pool and ocean in distance. The in hotel restaurant is a 5 star all by itself. Not in the hustle and busy area of town.... More

My family of four stayed here for three nights this past week. I would absolutely stay here again! I got a great rate of $149 plus taxes through Tripadvisor, but I think I would pay more next time to get a room with a balcony and/or pool/partial ocean view. Like others have said, this is not a beachfront property, as... More
