Very relaxing atmosphere, very friendly staff... Our only negatives would be the resort didn't offer a lot of onsite activities included with the stay. We did book some day trips through Tico Tours, who have an counter in the resort, they were also excellent and very accomodating.
The staff was amazing, The view incredible. The pool magnificent. The food was good although a bit pricey and the spa was pretty but too expensive! We were waited on hand and foot. We used this hotel as our base and would travel daily for our excursions.

The hotel is quite lovely with good facilities. We were happy to have a room close to the main building though as many were quite far and up hill and stairs. The pool was nice but not amazing. There were always lots of activities going on like pool volleyball and ping pong which was entertaining. The beach was lovely but not fantastic. Great snorkelling and wildlife nearby. We recommend the sunset walk. Tour companies are right in the hotel which made booking excursions easy. We recommend the Tam company. The room was clean and the maid staff were excellent, however the rooms could use some updating. But we were glad the air conditioning worked well. The food was better than expected although it did get a bit monotonous by the end of the week. The special restaurants were a nice change of pace but small portions. The staff were all very friendly and attentive. We sat through a "special welcome breakfast" which was really a three hour sales pitch on the time share but we received a discount on tours for participating. All things considered would stay there again for sure.
Papagayo is a largely untouched area on the northern Pacific coast of Costa Rica. The isolated location has historically drawn quiet crowds of bird watchers and nature enthusiasts, but in recent years Papagayo has become a popular spot for new resorts. With both tropical forests and palm-tree lined beaches, visitors have an array of outdoor activities to enjoy including swimming and hiking.
