My girlfriend and I spent a week at Chantel and we were very impressed. Anita, Chantel and Mary were awesome hosts as they always greeted you with a smile and would help you with anything you needed! The room had everything we required with good AC and warm water and the view of the bay was great. The food in...

We've stayed at Hotel Chantel three times thus far and brought/sent several friends. It has always been a lovely experience of hospitality, comfort, cleanliness, vistas and food! Chef William's menu is absolutely fantastic!! We can't wait to return. Thank you to Anita, Chantel and young Mary.

My husband and I are visiting friends in Uvita and went up to Hotel Chantel for 2 nights. First off the view! Panoramic views of the Playa del Coco beach with boats, beautiful views out into the bay that frame the skyline like a postcard, with large rocks jutting out of the sea like statues from ancient times. The hotel...

We had the pleasure of spending the weekend at this great location overlooking the Gulf of Papagayo! The hotel is set high up on a hill and the sunsets couldn't have been more lovely. We didn't get a chance to eat dinner here, as they were booked solid, so next time we return we'll be sure to make a reservation!...

I really can't speak highly enough about this hotel. I have stayed at much, much more expensive hotels, but can tell you that the staff at Hotel Chantel is second to none. To give an example, I had left my credit card at a restaurant in Lake Arenal about 80 miles away. I had no phone number or means to...

This was a very nice little hotel. I was concerned at first that it would be to far from town but when you get up here the view is amazing. It was very easy to get a cab into town and back. I was happy to be out of town after realizing it would of been loud and crazy there....

We had the pleasure of staying here for several nights. As others have said, the view is amazing! When we checked in, we were greeted by Mary. Very sweet and extremely helpful! She made us feel special. Our room was small, but that really didn't matter to us. They have different room sizes. A filling breakfast is included, extremely clean...

This hotel has an incredible view of Playa del Coco. The room was very clean and felt right at home. They had a restaurant, the Lookout, that had amazing food and great atmosphere. The front desk was very accommodating. I highly recommend this hotel to any couple for a great getaway

Can't complain waking up to this view each morning. Also can't complain about the great service from Chantel and Anita on the front desk! In summary, a good size bedroom and bathroom. A sharp ascent up to the hotel but the road is in pretty good condition. As with most Costa Rican hotels, they are all a bit dated and...

Thank you so much for writing us a review! Your suggestions have been received and we have purchased new towels and are working on the glass glasses. Guest feedback helps us continuously improve, so thanks for that :) Anyone reading please also check out the separate TripAdvisor page for The Lookout restaurant for more information about The Lookout.

The views alone on the drive up to the hotel are worth it. When you get to the top and just look out you have views and can see the ocean, the mountains and the peacefulness of your surroundings. We were greeted by friendly and helpful staff. Our room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. There was consistent hot...
