We truly stumbled on the Castillo Real when our GPS got us lost trying to locate the Holliday Isle at midnight after a long day at Disney in Orlando. The Castillo looks like a Mexican style resort that you may find in Puerto Vallarta, with fantastic service and great location. When we arrived late at night, the overnight desk clerk, who's name escapes me, but is a very nice young man, went out of his way to help us and even bumped us to a Jacuzzi suite for our 2 night stay! The rooms were very well decorated, with full tile floors throughout and a massive walk in shower, again fully tiled. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the room had both a microwave and a mini fridge with complementary bottled water. The hotel has a great restraint and has terrific free coffee in the lobby, along with a great workout room, and sauna/ steam room! The hotel is located less than 30 yards from the beach right down the side street. The whole area is terrific with a lot of beach bar and cafes within walking or biking distance. Another thing that you definitely do not want to miss is The Tasting Tours in historic St Augustine! How about a horse drawn carriage ride with WINE, and food and your own tour guide telling you not only about all of the history, but the fun antidotes associated with St Augustine like the "Kissing Tree", and the great shoppes that you normally wouldn't get to see on a normal drab tour! We will most definitely be back to St Augustine, stay at the Castillo Real and go through another Wine tour with friends.
