After travelling from San Jose through the "Death Highway" quite an experience we arrived at El Castillo or should I say "Heaven". It is a beautiful Spanish style old villa. When you arrive at the circular drive through the main entrance you have this spectacular view across an open air lobby which opens through French doors onto an infinity pool and an amazing panoramic view of the bay. We arrived at sunset OUTSTANDING. The grounds are gorgeous with a modern but yet old world feel.
Now at many Bed and Breakfasts you often have to source out local restaurants not at El Castillo their on property restaurant Azul was incredible. Scott reserved a pool side table for us on our arrival night. The food is beautifully presented and as a foodie the meal made my tastebuds dance with all the different and unique flavours. Make sure you arrive for the sunset it will make your entire experience perfect. We couldnt wait for breakfast again poolside with fresh fruit and wonderful Costa Rican breakfast. Scott and John were warm and welcoming it was like staying at a friend's home. Thanks for the memories guys. Debo and Gabe February 15, 2013.
