Visited the end of August 2015. 4 of us (two boys aged 11 & 15.) The hotel is situated two miles walk along the coast path past Playa Blanca near to Papagayo. As with everything you get what you pay for and I agree with most of what a previous reviewer has said. We paid the same as last year... More

We are a family of four with children aged 12 and 9. From the moment we were greeted at the reception by Leo to the moment we left we were very impressed. Leo was very helpful and we were helped by Jesus with our bags to our room. Well done to Jesus who carried three families worth of suitcases and... More

Well, I'll try to keep this brief but be comprehensive at the same time. We had a fabulous holiday, first 10 days of August and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There are so many staff that work so hard to keep the guests happy here it is almost shameful that a few rotten apples can be allowed spoil the barrel! We... More

Don't normally write reviews, but due to the mixed reviews this hotel now gets, I thought I would try and give an honest opinion to help others, who may be travelling to this hotel in the future, or are thinking about booking it. We went as a family of 4 (two boys aged 11 and 13) during the school holidays... More

Thanks for a great stay! If there is anything wrong with your room do pursue complaining we did get a better room and it was beneficial we ended up much better off and throughly ended up loving it! It's slightly further out from Playa Blanca so you do need a taxi or hire car!

We visited the Castillo Spa when we were staying at the Sandos next door. The receptionist at the Castillo was so helpful when we asked if we could use the spa, and he personally took us through the hotel, past the facilities which looked wonderful, to the spa building. The spa treatments were absolutely great, reasonably priced we thought, and... More

Came back 18 Aug from 7 days at the hotel, travelled with a teenager and grown up son, so 3 of us in total. Hotel is within a large complex with several different levels so can be confusing to start with but once you get the hang of it it's fine. Make sure you take time to have a good... More

Fantastic hotel. Great service from all the staff in a beautiful complex. We are family of 2+2 - this place is ideal. I emailed in advance to request a room close to the kids pool area and on arrival, late one night, we were firstly directed to the dining room to have dinner before returning to reception for the formalities....
