4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. I was not sure what to expect, but was very pleasantly surprised when I saw my room and the property. The room was big, comfortable, clean and well maintained. My only issue with the room was that the TV was too small for the room. If you watch TV at night... More

My wife and I stayed here on our anniversary, and it was an extremely pleasant experience. I travel often for work and stay in nice hotels, but those hotels lack the charm of the Castillo Real in St. Augustine. I challenge anyone to find a more genuinely thoughtful staff. We spent a long weekend at the hotel, and every day... More

The staff was friendly and helpful. The lobby and room was beautifully decorated. We had an excellent meal in the hotel restaurant. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. My husband had easy access to the computer in the lobby. The beach access was a short walk away. Every thing in the room worked well(TV, AC, bathroom). We would stay... More

A friend and I decided to come for a few days just to relax and we are both happy we chose this hotel. For a beach hotel the decor is very upscale and our rooms are very, very clean. We each had rooms on the fourth floor so you do have a small beach view which is nice but it... More

Dzignr, Thank you for your kind and honest review. We definitely don't want any of our guests thinking that we are ocean front, though we'd love to be. We are pleased that you and your friend enjoyed yourselves and that you found the hotel clean and relaxing. We hope you are able to return soon. More

Rooms were beautiful, clean, and comfortable! The bed was so comfortable. I usually have trouble sleeping on vacation... not this time ... I slept like a baby! Showers were clean with loads hot water and pressure. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Minutes from excellent places to eat. Mango Mangoes and Sunset Grille were our favorites. Just a short walk... More

Thanks so much Maureen for making me and my happy campers. This is one of the very best Ascend hotel's I have ever stayed in. The hotel looks just like the pictures on line. We will see you next year. We loved the room so much that we didn't really want to go sight seeing.

This is our second visit to Castillo Real, and it will not be the last. Wonderful location, room couldn't be nicer. The staff is second to none. The pool is inviting during our hot mid July stay. We were traveling with our 10 and 14 year old grandchildren. Would you believe that the ocean is about a half of a... More

We recently stayed at the Castillo Real to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, providing us great advice for local attractions and restaurants. The room was very spacious, quiet and clean. They even went the extra mile, delivering a handwritten note and dessert to our room, congratulating us on our anniversary. This was a... More

My sister and I went down for a weekend trip in October, which is a great time to go to the beach in Florida. We chose the Castillo Real because we wanted to splurge and spoil ourselves. We were not disappointed. We arrived late, apparently the last guests to check in, but were treated very well. We were given breakfast... More
