Why we love Castelo

Beautiful boutique type Lodge with very personalized service and attention to detail. Occupies a blissfully isolated position on a seemingly endless stretch of beach…
We love the Ocean Front Deluxe rooms in particular, where you can relax in the Jacuzzi room on your private deck, whilst your eyes drink in stunning views!
From kayaking with dolphins swimming beside you, to a sunset boat cruise and supper served on the beach, everything is perfect!
