Dogs Barking at Daybreak Inside the hotel, and even seen one in the pool area, there for hours with the owner of the dog, seen another dog being brought out the back and seen another dog being brought out the back of the hotel and taken into a Mercedes car right next to my vehicle. Now if this is a "NO DOGS ALLOWED" Then we are seeing things, I am allergic to dogs and cannot stay where that they are present or have been present. Now, lets move on to the room conditions, the floors were not clean and the bath even had blood in front of the commode. It looks like the cleaner had tried to get the stains removed but, It's still there, we just covered it with the shower floor mat towel. We had room # 409 it has a hot tub and balcony overlooking the pool with and ocean view on the other side of the buildings. Pricey...... I know that it is listed as No Pets Allowed, But I did go look at the website of the motel and it has no Pet Policy Listed. I knew why my allergies were acting up after the Dogs appeared and every time that I laid down on the bed or just set on it that I would start itching and that is the reaction I have to the presence of dogs. The motel is in a great location and just a short walk down the side street to the beach (that is the good). The motel was notified of my Dog allergies when we made our reservations, don't think they even looked at that or didn't know that they had a Dog problem.

This was our first return to Castillo Real hotel in about Five years. We were not at all disappointed. Everything was as if it was brand new. The rooms are large and the beds very comfortable. A/C was fantastic. Very large shower area and bathroom. As usual, very clean. About a 1/2 block walk to the beach, but the hotel pool is very inviting. For the early part of April, only a few children were around. Castillo Real has an on-site restaurant, food looked great, they offer a breakfast deal for $8.00, which covers your meal and drinks. Must pay before, I believe 11:00 pm. Of the day before. The hotel staff were great. Treated us as old friends and were very helpful. Only two things I would offer as a suggestion. Their were only 3 Handicapped parking places. If you would consider adding maybe 2 more, it would make for easier access to the hotel. Spaces fill up quickly with only 3 spaces available. My only other suggestion would be to maybe get the elevator to moves little quicker. I am sure we will be returning again to Castillo Real very soon. This being our 3rd. Stay here.? Thanking the staff for an enjoyable time

The rooms were gorgeous and spotless.The front desk agent was professional and friendly.

We stayed 2 nights in a nice room with a partial ocean view, balcony and jacuzzi tub. The room was very spacious. In addition to the giant tub there was a huge walk in shower. The location is great.....a short walk to the beach and walking distance to several places to eat/drink. Would definitely stay again!
