We make our way from Central Florida to St. Augustine several times a year. We always select the Castillo Real. Its proximity to the beach (200 feet) or so and its nearness to Old Town (about 10 to 15 minutes) make it and ideal location.The staff is most pleasant an accommodating. They offer cheerful help when asked and all seem to really enjoy their positions. The hotel parking facility is well lit and free of charge. The hotel entrances can only be entered with a room key so this is an excellent safety feature. Free wi-fi is available throughout the hotel and at the pool. You must try the restaurant for a meal....any meal Breakfast...lunch or Dinner. You are treated extremely well by the staff. The chef is amazing and the servings are equivalent to fine dining in a large city or a fine European restaurant. Our room, as all that I can tell are huge. The bathroom and dressing areas are large and provide access easily for 2 people. The room furniture showed a bit of wear and tear. Noticed quite a bit of dust on the furniture bottoms and some of the lights. With regard to the light in the room, at best it can be described as very dim. In spite of a multitude of lamps in the room they were equipped with the new energy savings bulbs which made me feel as if I was visiting Mexico.There was only one window in the room and because of its nearness to the ocean, salt seemed to adhere to the window also causing natural light to be blocked The hallway leading to the elevator was unlevel and we could see where the tile had cracked. The elevator was very warm and did have an odor about it. Carpets, especially in the elevator did not seem to be all that clean. Despite some negatives this establishment is generally well run....but it needs a bit of updating.
