There is a reason our nine-room adult-only luxury hotel is named The Castle: The magnificent structure perched 600 feet above the Pacific Ocean has arguably the most dramatic view in all of Costa Rica. Spectacular, yes. Stuffy, no. Our exceptional staff will ensure your vacation is the greatest of your lifetime. Dine at El Castillo’s own restaurant, Castillo’s Kitchen, a Chef’s Table concept mastering the evolution of Costa Rican cuisine. Experience elements of Costa Rica in every dish in a new and innovative way. Chef Pablo will dazzle you. Welcome to the jungle and about three percent of the biodiversity on this side of the planet. If you prefer wildlife over nightlife, this is the place for you. Whale watching, snorkeling, hiking, deep-sea fishing, zip lining, surfing, kayaking, beach combing, and sea turtle viewing are all within minutes of El Castillo.
