Great Hotel A review of Ascend Collection Castillo Real
Great Hotel! The rooms were large and well appointed with granite and travertine floors, nice color scheme and a DVD player to boot! The beds were "pillow top" which made for a restful sleep. Our room had a refrigerator and a microwave. I think this is standard for all the rooms which came in handy since the breakfast was expensive so we stocked up on cereal and milk, OJ, and water. The hotel also has FREE high-speed internet access (wired and wireless) but I did not bring my laptop since this was a vacation. The hotel staff was non-existent, but in a good way. The hotel was always clean and our rooms were picked up and beds made when we returned from sight seeing, but we never saw housekeeping. The pool was kid friendly and clean, but it closed at 10PM. The ocean was just a short walk from the hotel (100 yards) and you don't have to cross a busy street. There is a good selection of restaurants within a short drive from the hotel, and a few were within walking distance. Overall I was impressed with our stay and at $109.00 a night; we got what we paid for.
