Another great stay at the Castillo. Wonderful friendly staff, including all maids. Linen and towels changed regularly and perfect for visits to the centre. Found a great place to go for a nice drink and Country and Western karaoke night. Spent most of our nights in this lovely new bar. Its called Outlaws and you must give it a try, Wendy and Martin are the hosts and make all very welcome. A friendly and fresh place to visit with exceptionally clean toilets.

A lovely place with good reviews. Our room was ok for just the 2 of us, but would want somewhere bigger of the adjoining room if more than 2 people.
The rooms were cleaning and basic, we have the cleaner in 5 out of the 7 days, sheets changed twice and towels 4 times in our week stay. We were on the 5th floor. There was a little noise from the comercial centre at night, but it didn't keep us awake, all the hotels in this area would hear it.
We had a kettle in the room but most of the rooms don't, no hair dryer or toaster, but you can hire all of these. The Kitchen has everything you would need other than a toaster and kettle.
The pool was cleaned everyday, nice to see. In february the pool area doesn't get the sun until about 11. The weather was good most days but because it had been raining the night times were a bit cool, I sugest a pair of jeans and big cardy packed away, the locals had thick coats on due to the usual weather.
There are about 10 big steps to get into the hotel grounds. It has lifts. The hotel like all the others in puerto rico are built into the rocks and this one is quite high up. There is the choice of walking up and the paths or steps or taxi. Taxi is very reasonable about 4 euros at night. The steps are a little challenging but not too difficult, there are step on the left and right as you leave the hotel, if you go left ther are 206 and they are more steeper, but if you go left they have a blue hand rail and are less steeper and have flat areas in between and only 165 steps.
We ate at a few places and the hotel food was ok. The Greedy Pigs was good plain food at reasonble prices. They did good breakfasts and main meals, Sausage, mash in a yorkshire pudding with onion gravy, Steak pie and chips, Lasagne, all home cooked not processsed food.
The bars are what ever you want, you can pay as little as 1 euro a pint to 4 euro, you pay more if entertainment is on at the bars, if you want a cheap place to start a place called
M & M s is the cheapest 2.50 Euro for local vodka and mixer and 1 euro a pint. Also a place called the pub, they did a bit of entertainment, acts, bingo, quiz , disco and karoake I think this was the only place with reasonable drinks and entertainment.

Room Tip: If the noise would bother you at night, ask for room on the 3rd floor or below

This was my first holiday away, and I loved it here! Very very friendly staff! Rooms were nice and clean, cleaned every second day. Great views. And it such a great location the only down sides were that you had to pay to hire out a kettle.. The bathroom had an awful smell and also you weren't allowed to have visitors in to your room unless they were staying in the hotel aswell.. But overall I love it! Will definitely be going back!!

My husband and I wanted a budget break in the sun in January before an important hospital appt. and we chose these apartments knowing the resort and looking at the reviews. On arrival we had a really friendly and helpful greeting at reception, it was a good start. The apartments do need a refurb. and paint job as the furniture was chipped and the towel holders in the shower room was rusty, but having said that it had everything you need for a self catering holiday and everywhere was spotless. We didn't bother with a TV as we weren't in our room much and spent most of our time on the beach or out for meals.
Yes, there are a lot of steps but they aren't too steep and there are hand rails all the way down. If you want to go further afield the hotel will call you a taxi for 50 cents and they arrive in minutes.
There is a pool bar that does meals which is handy.
Would go there again.

Room Tip: All room face the pool, the centre and you can see the sea too. There was some noise from the clubs...

Me and two friends stayed here in January, the hotel is in a good location but with a lot of steps to walk down to get to anywhere. You can get a taxi from the town to the hotel for about €3 worth it after a night out. The rooms really need a update very tired decor but the hotel is very clean, so the money you pay you can't complain. We never got a chance to go in the pool as it was freezing but it looked very well cared for. Over all this hotel is clean and in a good location and value for money.

Lorraine is no longer there to entertain us but Domingo did a fair job of trying to fill her shoes.
We will return again next year.
