The Iberostar Papagayo hotel is set in a beautiful quiet position overlooking the sea. The hotel is spotless and rooms and beds are comfortable, although the air conditioning could be more effective. The pool area is clean and well laid out with plenty of sunbeds and use of towels which can be changed daily for a deposit of 10 euros. However the water is on the cold side.
The staff on reception, in the dining room and in other areas of the hotel were always pleasant, helpful and friendly and Animacion staff were enthusiastic and great at their jobs. The restaurant has a good varied selection of choices and cater for specific dietary requirements if requested (eg Gluten free bread with breakfast and a vegetarian corner at dinner).
There is also half hour free Wi-Fi available daily in the flamingo bar next to reception, with the option of paying for Wi-Fi in the room.
The hotel is an easy 20 minute walk along the sea front promenade to the Rubicon Marina, where there are plenty of bars and restaurants, and the supermarket is just a few minutes walk away.
Overall we would highly recommend the hotel and will definitely be returning for another holiday.

La Bocayna is just what we wanted for our short break. Close to Papagayo beaches (we always rent a car) and not too far for shopping either. We know this island very well and it did not disappoint us.
Weather was lovely apart from it raining as we checked in, but the receptionist gave us a glass of cava whilst we waited for it to stop, and from then on it was sunny and warm. The food in the restaurant was very good with enough choices. The staff were very helpful and even gave us 2nd helpings of the mussels (our favourite). The bed was very comfortable and the cleaning was excellent.
All in all, we will certainly return to La Bocayna Village!
We had a wonderful stay despite the cloudy weather (it's sunny there now!). The hotel is perfectly located - next to the marina and close to restaurants and supermarkets.
The hotel has a lovely pool area and bar, a variety of different sun loungers to choose from (and child free!). If you play tennis, the court is pretty ropey, I wouldn't bother taking your racquets! The apartments are perfect - clean and spacious.
Will certainly be back again next year - cant recommend it enough!
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.
We've just got back from 5 days at hotel white suites and had an amazing stay. The hotel is spotless and staff all very friendly especially the activities coordinators. The food was also amazing with lots of variety despite it being a buffet. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice chilled holiday.
This hotel is ideally situated for all you would want from a holiday. The rooms themselves are large in size and have everything you require. If there was to be one gripe it would be that although kettle etc is supplied in the room, after the first day you have to pay for a tea/coffee tray. Basic tea/coffee could be left daily I would suggest. Other than that this is a hotel I would keep returning to.

Have just spent 10 days at the Lanzarote Princess, what a superb hotel. The level of friendliness from all the staff was outstanding. Every parts of the hotel was clean and tide, and any problem was dealt with straight away.
The specialist restaurant was superb, wish we could have gone again.
This is our second time at a H10 hotel and I would recommend them.
