Go there, stay a night in the ocean facing rooms on the 3rd floor with the Jacuzzi. Just before getting in the bed, check the label on the comforters, mattress, linen and pillows. they post them here for me or else I will have to return and do it myself. It was like climbing back into the womb; (the womb... More

Convenient to everything in St. Augustine Beach. The rooms are very large and comfortable. I had a jacuzzi room and the jacuzzi was family-sized! My room had a partial view of the ocean and I loved being able to see the beautiful blue water from the window. The elevator was slooooow but with only four floors it's no big deal... More

We are on a beach vacation. Don't stay in the hotel much. Nice staff. Clean rooms. Convenient to the beach. Out the door down the access road (no crossing A1A). Refreshing pool and 105 degree hot tub (the switch is on the back wall behind the bushes). Guests using inside voices after 10 pm would be nice - not the... More

Book it with points two years ago, and upgraded it for $100.00 a night. Got a great room. This year we only used points. They stuck us in room 102 which is poor room, and had next to no water pressure in the shower. We all wished we had gone to the other comfort inn. In short, got money to... More

We come to this hotel for a week every year in July and LOVE IT!!! The balcony beach views are excellent, hotel is spotless, bed is soft and comfortable, sauna is beyond relaxing and the atmosphere is blissful. The location is perfect for walking to the beach and/or restaurants. We have been staying here for 4 years and will continue.

Booked a couple rooms for a weekend getaway for the family. Price seemed a bit higher than we would normally pay, but that ended up not being a big deal considering how nice and spacious the rooms were and location to the beach which my daughter loved. The large jacuzzi tub was nice..would have rather it be hidden from in... More

My family and I moved down here for a few dollars more from the dumpy Holiday Isle which was right down the street. I was happy they could accommodate us. The hotel is very pretty, clean, and I found the staff to be more then helpful and nice. We stayed in an executive suite. It is not right on the... More

We recently stayed 3 nights at Castillo Real and I am so glad we did. This place is very nice and has an excellent staff. After having stayed the two nights prior in Jacksonville I was so glad to get here and see how nice and clean the room was. Only steps from the beach and a short drive to... More

Everything about our stay at this hotel was pleasant. The room was clean, the staff was nice, the restaurant inside the hotel was fantastic, and the location was good. The only possible things that would have made our stay better where if more rooms had balconies (ours did not and they did not offer 2 bed rooms with a balcony),... More

This hotel looked great online and had several positive reviews but was very disappointing. The staff were disinterested, verging on rude. The rooms were shabby and not particularly clean. ( there were red splashes on the bathroom door when we arrived; looked like spilled wine, which were there for the whole of our stay.) Promised sea view was a building... More

suzanne132637, We are very sorry that you found your stay here only average and did not enjoy it. Most reviewers rave about or cleanliness and friendliness. I can't even begin to imagine our staff being rude. As for our view, it is advertised as a partial ocean view, and we never shy away from the fact that you can see... More
