We stayed here four nights in total with great host, Alejandro.
Rooms - we stayed in the front tower and the back tower and was fun. Themed right down to window shutters and lights. Big beds and plenty of space. Fridges available in all rooms. Hot water and table or sofas and a hammock in rooms too :) no ac but very airy rooms with good ventilation.
Staff - Alejandro will do pretty much anything to make stay comfortable and easy. Is knowledgeable of the area.
Value - puerto ayoro isn't a cheap place. We had no accommodation booked and ended up walking around for about an hour looking for places to stay and were either ridiculously priced or had screaming kids and a disco on the ground floor. The castle is in a generally quiet area and if off-season or plenty of availability Alejandro may organize a deal with you.
Gardens - gorgeous. Swing in a hammock or walk around.
One night out of the four we had a disco down the road an was on a Monday night as well?!? Not much Alejandro can do about that though. Put earplugs in and went back to sleep.
Nothing ugly about staying in a castle!
