As a couple this was a perfect getaway. It is an exclusive place to enjoy the entire grounds and feel very relaxed everywhere you go. The privacy of the beaches without any vendors was great. The service at the beach was just as good as poolside. Restaurants were very good also. Drinks and food were expensive. We would go back as a couple again. They were very accommodating and offered excellent service everywhere.
The first morning I awoke to what I thought was dog barking. After I phoned the desk, I was told it was the howler monkeys! Loved hearing them. Also loved seeing the white faced monkeys passing through in the trees.

Very comfy rooms, great onsite restaurants and bars. Relaxed atmosphere with excellent drinks. Easy access to water activities and to small towns. Excellent offsite restaurants only minutes away. Would definitely stay there again.

Be prepared to be enchanted! The rough road leads to an amazing hotel with even more amazing people. This was a family vacation with our two older teenage children. From the beginning until the end, it was a vacation of a lifetime. We were greeted in the parking lot by a friendly face who turned out to be our concierge - this was a wonderful surprise! After our long journey, he recognized that we were hungry, and so he escorted us to the restaurant for a relaxing lunch and complimentary drink - oh, by the way, he checked us in as we gazed over the beautiful ocean view. The next trip was to our 3 bedroom villa that I can only say was amazing. The kids wondered if we had become rock stars since we left the States... yes, it was that amazing. The 1st night we thought we heard a gorilla... turned out to be a howler monkey - a veryLOUD howler monkey. By the end of our 1st day, our teenage son declared that he would have to stop saying everything was amazing because, well, everything was amazing! Our trip was filled with encounters with a truly caring and courteous hotel staff, first class food and accommodations, views to die for, wildlife sights and sounds from National Geographic, and did I mention the amazing people? We would return to Punta Islita in a heartbeat, and we actually discussed the need to start playing the lottery with the hope of returning to beautiful Costa Rica sooner vs. later. It is truly PURA VIDA!
Went with friends to verify the hotel for my Wedding, ended up paying in advance for it.
Loved the staff (special thanks to Carlos Limon!), the hotel is quiet and relaxing, food great, beach has rocks but its private.
The Hilton Papagayo was absolutely beautiful! We stayed for 1 week from Nov 8th - Nov 15th and the hotel was beyond expectations. The staff are great and very accommodating. The resort is gorgeous; lots to see and do, and the food was delicious. The restaurants are all wonderful (steakhouse was our favorite!) and there are lots of options on every menu. The hotel is in a great location with lots to see and do both on the resort and the surrounding area. We would recommend this resort to anyone!
