A luxurious stay in a room or suite at an award-winning boutique retreat perched 600 feet above the Pacific Ocean

Receive the royal treatment at El Castillo. This Costa Rican TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Award 2018 winner in Puntarenas’ Ojochal is incredibly luxurious, with panoramic Pacific views from 600 feet above the water, farm- and sea-to-table restaurant, and tranquil spa room. Look forward to world-class hospitality and truly personalized service – offering just nine rooms, this adults-only property is able to boast a staff-to-room ratio of one to one.

Speaking of personalization, the concierge team will happily put together your dream excursion. Let them point you toward whale-watching, hiking, zip-lining and kayaking adventures, or in certain seasons, accompany you on the five-minute boat ride to the exclusive private island’s beach. End your day back in your individually decorated abode, which comes with its own sweeping vistas. Wash off under the rain shower, and rest up like a royal between the 300-thread-count organic-cotton sheets on your plush bed – king-sized, naturally.
