Location of this hotel is excellent, slightly off the main street which makes it a fair bit quieter at night, but still a simple walk to any bars and restaurants in town. Numerous reviews here talk about thin walks and too much noise, however we did not experience that at all. The room was fairly clean, WIFI worked well, A/C... More

Stayed a couple of nights and had no complaints. Cheap room, aircon and fan, en-suite with shower that worked and breakfast included. Good location for shops and beach. Several good restaurants nearby. Excellent value if you just want a cheap, clean, comfortable room. Recommended

After a month of feeling ripped off in the hotels in Costa Rica and Panama, Hotel Royal Chateau is refreshing. Our room is clean (and cleaned daily), the shower works and so does the air con. We are a few blocks from the shore, but it is an easy 5 minute walk, besides it gets rather noisy farther toward the... More

This is a nice clean hotel, just a block away from the market ,we liked the enclosed parking , the breakfast was included better than we expected ,the only thing wrong is that the walls are too thin ,bring plugs next time!

I was a regular guest and friend of this hotel for years. I was treated with old fashioned hospitality in return. I always stayed weeks at a time. I arrived January 10th on a one week reservation as always and advised the staff that as always I will stay at least until end of January. The owner put in a... More

We had a nice, big room with a rocking chair. Hot water, air conditioning, and wifi all worked well. We had no problem with noise. The room had a damp smell to it that I didn't like, but I bet that is hard to avoid in this area. The location was just a little away from the busier streets of... More

We just stayed here for four nights over New Years. Granted, it is incredibly hard to find accommodations during that time, we were charged $140 a night for a dingy little corner room. Yes, hot water and a/c is awesome but the room was so tiny and the walls are so thin you hear EVERYTHING going on around you. I... More

Great place to stay. Large rooms, ac, hot shower, gated parking lot, nice breakfeast. Quite away from the crowds. Two cons. They had no ice. I would recomend placing or offering for an extra charge small frigs.
