I told the Hotel in advance that it was my partners 50th birthday and on arrival we were upgraded to a suite with fab views. Spent the day in town and returned to room around 5 pm to find a bottle of Cava and chocolate cake left for us. All in all was a great night for us and the Hotel helped in this so thank you from us!

This is the second time we have stayed here and it is perfectly positioned. Kids club entertainers were excellent, took great care of kids and kept them amused. Great little bar at night with nice barman , always something going on. Reception staff very helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in costa teguise. Great location for the money.
Faultless hotel - it is colossal but extremely well-run, spotlessly clean, amazing food and excellent facilities. The abundance of beautiful, fresh food was almost embarrassing - a real treat. We were upgraded to a junior suite as the hotel was fully booked so had a spacious room with a living area and a lovely sea view. The pools were all wonderful, the animation team was excellent and not too 'in your face' - my 7 year old and I played a lot of table tennis whenever there was a rain shower (sadly frequently during our 4 day stay!) The staff were all super-friendly and very amenable.
However, I would probably not go back to the Sandos Papagayo because a) the location - it is too far away from the airport - the taxi ride was nearly 50 Euros each way - a good 40 mins. And b) the beach in front of the hotel must be accessible from the hotel as I saw people on it but no idea how you got down to it from the hotel ... and it is black sand which makes it pretty unattractive. They have a free shuttle bus to and from the town nearby but we did not leave the hotel for 4 days as my daughter just wanted to go in the pool. Personally I would have liked to go for a walk nearby or wander around the town a little but due to the bad weather and the fact that you had to get a bus to go anywhere, we stayed put.
We were looking for somewhere to get some winter sun and Hesperia was recommended. Not disappointed - staff service was consistently excellent and room was very good. We were B&B only - but the marina is around a 10 minute walk and there are some great restaurants serving both tapas style Spanish food and burgers etc. We'll be back next year!
Would definitely recommend. We stayed in a standard room and we did not feel inferior to the 'deluxe' guests at all. The pool area was lovely and the rooms were spacious. The food was lovely and had lots of options.
Fantastic hotel and holiday, the room was amazing and the beds so comfortable. Champagne on arrival and every day for breakfast WOW. Food very good and fresh cooked for you and being adults only very relaxing.
