This is my second trip back to the Castillo. I had been there three years ago, before the fire, so I was unsure of what to expect. I was totally amazed, not only was the hotel rebuilt perfectly, but it is larger and offers modern amenities including a Dj booth, full bar and a beautiful restaurant.
We had an intimate birthday party for 15 with no problem, enjoyed the most fabulous food and everyone at the hotel made us feel welcome. I would highly recommend this hotel for large groups up to 20 people. Not only do you have the place to yourself, you also have a full staff, meals, full bar along with personal guides for excursions, laundry and a land rover with a driver. I had inquired as to whether we could rent the hotel for a month and they said, yes, if their was availability. I am definitely planning a family and friend event in the near future. A trip of a lifetime!
