My stay at the Casta was the best I have ever had in many years. I arrived a bit late due to family and work related issues on Friday but could still get supper as everyone was waiting for me(colleagues and hotel staff). This happens in few places! The waiters, chef, gardener and ladies cleaning our rooms were excellent in... More

Nice atmosphere and perfect service, good menu well prepared, sophisticated taste in decoration, music and the like. Parking safe, swimming pool and gym with handles. Only in the old rooms some minor excusable flaws. Small mall nearby, which is convenient. Avoid those restaurants at the mall though, their food rather poor. The Bentleys Country Lodge nearby is nice. Was my... More

The grounds and decor are superb. Beautiful, romantic and verdant. Our guests found the portion sizes lacking. And although we seemed to be one of the only tables at dinner, the waiter was seldom seen. The theatre was cute (seats 70) and has its own bar and tables. The beds are amazing - wonderfully firm with possibly memory foam mattress... More

Casta Diva felt like we were staying on a luxury estate. The drive to the hotel takes you through an upscale residential area to a gated, secure entrance. Once inside the grounds, we were taken back by the beauty of the architecture and the large pool. The staff at the front desk were friendly, but I was disappointed that they... More
