5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I booked a week's all-inclusive holiday at this hotel through Blue Sea holidays agency, which specialises in reduced-cost deals, and which uses Low Cost Beds Com. Ltd as its accommodation supplier - total cost for two persons (excluding flights/transfers) was under £1100. The welcome at reception was friendly and professional - with a glass of sparkling wine. Unfortunately the room... More

We have just spent a week at this hotel and we were very impressed. Greeted with a glass of bubbly as we were checking in, a porter to take our bags to our room and show us where to go as the complex is massive. Rooms are very good quality with walk in wardrobes and big very high quality bathrooms.... More

Even our room wasn't ready yet, but we were informed to visit the pool bar for drinks before the buffet restaurant open for lunch. Bedroom – very spacious & clean room on block 6 with some view of the sea. Excellent... More

5 Star rating: If you expect the same 5 star experience as you would in the Dorchester in London then you'll be disappointed however you will be delighted with the money you save. The Dorcehster will cost you over 4 thousand pounds for 7 days, the Castillo will cost you around 1400 euros all in. So those who complain about... More

We stayed in the hotel for a week in January.There's only good things to say about this hotel.We were all inclusive+ and everything was included. Staff were brilliant especially in the restaurant food was great and so was the spa and all activities. Pools were heated which was good as the weather was poor.Really thought it was good.

Visited this hotel twice now within 2 years and absolutely loved it! the food was brilliant, the atmosphere was relaxing, the entertainment was... well, entertaining haha, and the rooms were well maintained. Would definitely recommend :) not the best beach, but walkable distance to playa blanca, where they have a market on certain days. You can also book several excursions... More
