The Tico Times Review 


"High on a hill, overlooking the small houses and surfer hostels of Pavones, sits a four-story stone castle. Though lacking the turrets and cannons of a true medieval palace, the newly renovated four-room Castillo de Pavones hotel features the lavish and distinct accommodations to make anyone feel like royalty...Up a steep dirt road even more remote then the already isolated town, the hotel is encircled by jungle. Towering over the nearby trees, the structure is built with sturdy flagstone walls held together with white concrete and a pointed rooftop that sits over three ground-to-ceiling columns...  Read More


"Discerning surf trippers who enjoy extra comfort and amenities for their time spent out of the water will find the luxury surf resort of Castillo de Pavones a good fit. Also, you won't have to stray too far because you are just meters away from one of the longest breaking left point breaks in the world.

Castillo de Pavones sits perched on a mountainside where you are surrounded by local Costa Rican flora and fauna, between river and ocean. Each of the 4 luxury suites offered here – all with ocean views - provide guests with spacious high comfort accommodation. This means that without even setting foot outside your room you can check out the surf conditions or spend time just relaxing in this natural tropical setting.”   Read More

"A spectacular place. I'm here for business and pleasure and stayed here at the recommendation of a friend. I couldn't thank him enough. The proprietor, Todd, and his wife, Maryanne, are first class people. They couldn't have been more friendly and were always asking if they could do anything for me. The rooms are superb and the meals beyond excellent. The entire staff will do anything to make your stay “perfect"

I'm a professor in a university in New York and I'm considering bringing a group of students here next January to study Entrepreneurship. I am certainly considering having them stay here. As stated earlier the rooms and the meals are excellent, the location is spectacular, and safety is not a concern. There are also enough activities, surfing, hiking, trips into the "jungle", horseback riding, etc. to keep them occupied in their free time. 

This is also a great family or honeymoon spot. It has all the privacy that one would want if that's your choice, and also a great place for the family to "reconnect".

I strongly recommend you consider the "Castle" if you are thinking about coming to CR.
