Overall pretty good

We had a great time last week at Papagayu. It was the vacation we needed. We went to the sensoria adventure and I highly recommend it. The beach was nice didn’t care much for the guys loitering down there trying to sell services like tours and fishing trips. The food was plentiful but not the best. The buffet got old after a few days. We did really enjoy the Italian restaurant the 2 times we could go.

Honeymoon

We visited during the first week in June, and we're pleasantly surprised at the feel of peace. This resort offered little in the way of nightlife, but that's what made it feel authentic, and a true Costa Rican experience. The buildings were fairly removed from the pool and beach areas, which made it feel a lot more relaxing for us. The staff were universally efficient, accommodating, and very friendly. We did run into a little trouble when we were hungry at 1100 am, didn't want to leave our room, and room service didn't deliver until 1200. There were 4 restaurants, only one of which (the buffet) was open for breakfast. There was a good selection of breakfast foods at the buffet, and the staff were excellent. The second restaurant, the Snack bar was only open for lunch from 11-3, but had a limited selection of lunch-time related foods. The final 2 restaurants were available only at night from 6-9:30, required a reservation, and you were only allowed to make 3 reservations during your stay. The Italian restaurant was amazing, with a moderate variety of foods cooked to perfection. The Oriental restaurant was good as well. There was rumor about a 5th restaurant that opens only on weekend nights, and needs reservations, The Grill. This was not available during our stay. Activities at the resort were limited, but it made for a very relaxing vacation. I would not recommend this if you're looking for a party, but if you're looking for a peaceful resort in which to relax, and recharge, this is the place for you@

May/June vacation

The hotel overall is a nice place to stay. As every other place, there are Pros and Cons. Pro: Adults only : All Inclusive : beach on premises : free non motorized water sports Con: only 3 restaurants and one snack bar : 2 pools including one pool bar : one disco The restaurants open at 7:30 am and close at 9:30 pm. Between those hours each close at certain times and there will be one or two hours where there’s no options to eat. Room service is available for an extra fee. Not a very good selection of food and not so great. The best plate I ate my entire time there was the hibachi plate and the cooks service was amazing. We asked for extra beer in the room because we wanted to stay in and we’re told there’s a limit of 2 per room PER DAY ( so much for all inclusive huh). In order for us to get the beers we had to SWAP OUT the sodas. Shuttle service was fast and prompt. Karaoke night was focused on one genre and was empty. Entertainment for one night was a saxophonist who had an audience of 3 max. We booked the hotel thinking it would be a “party” place because it was adults only... NOPE! If you’re looking to relax with a significant other, yes come here. If you’re looking to go all out and party, then this is not the place for you at all. Oh the tequila was absolutely... horrible. I hope this helps.

Our 30th anniversary

We were celebrating our 30th anniversary so we wanted to go some where exotic and beautiful and Costa Rica was the place. The price was right when we arrived there was a 2 hour wait for our rooms. Once we got our room the air conditioning was not working guest services did respond in a timely manner. The alacart restaurants were great there were 3 but we were informed at check in that we could only visit the restaurant every 3rd day what ever the policy ment it was very confusing. The buffet was ok but limited options. Drinks were fine and the wait staff were very accommodating. Karen at guest services was the best she made you very comfortable and provided good information on local excrursions. The excursions were wonderful and very informative Costa Rica is so beautiful there are thousands of plant varieties and exotic animals every where it was a wonderful thing to see nature preserved in this day and age. I would recommend that every one visit the country at some point

What's to Love

All-inclusive and adults-only resort perched on a cliff with breath-stealing views.

Lounging either by the glistening pool or on the beautiful sands - either spot - you win.

Upgrading to Premium Level - VIP access to restaurants, exclusive lounge, free Wi-Fi & more.

This exotic paradise has bird watching and organized nature walks. Pack your binoculars.

Rejuvenating at the spa - massages, facials, steam room, pedis and all kinds of pampering.

 

What We'd Change

The walk back from the beach is a bit of a hike, but at least it's a walk from one paradise to another and there are all-inclusive cocktails waiting.

 

Why You Should Go

You're just a short 35 minutes from the airport. This tropical wonderland awaits you.

Lots of sporty adventures - snorkeling, paddle boarding, volleyball, tennis and more.

Explore on a guided cycling tour or book an excursion to one of Costa Rica's epic sights.
