My husband and I booked a room through Hotels.com at Castillo del Mar back in June of last year for our trip that began on 12/31. Our email confirmation said to pay the hotel when we got there in their local currency. We called 2 days ahead of time to make sure everything was still in order and we were... More

I liked this hotel. It was nice and the AC worked well but no Wi-Fi in the room. They do not serve any breakfast or coffee here. It was a bit pricey thought. We found a different one, closer to 5th, for the next night that was half the price!

We hadn't gotten a hotel yet so we were checking around on Tripadvisor while we ate. During this time, a minor headache that I had turned into a raging migraine. My girlfriend ran across the way to Castillo... More

The hotel was nice and clean for the price, it was centric and not too loud even though it was right off 5ta avenida. The WIFI DOES NOT WORK.The suites at the top are equipped with kitchenette, a little fridge, a table for two, AC, fan and a king size bed. Sleeping was good.

We stayed here for one night and found it to be a nice location with basic amenities for the price. Nothing fancy, but for the price of $80usd on a Holiday, it was perfect. We had a room with two double beds, air conditioning, television and wifi.

First, Castillo del mar is on the 5th and the 26th. But to tell you the truth, for the price you pay which is very very cheap, you get a great deal bedroom. It is a very clean hotel with nice rooms... a bit cheezy but great. It is like new and the staff is very nice. You get the... More
