I loved breakfast - all the fresh fruit you could eat, fresh baked breads, homemade jams (try the mulberry jam, handpicked... More

The entire staff of Papagenos greeted us on our arrival. In the off season, we were the only guests at the resort, so we were just treated like family. It was an amazing experience! Personal tour of the resort, gardens, clinic and buildings, dinner with the staff, diving and fishing and attendance of the school pageant. What an amazing resort... More

I had a wonderful visit to Papagano several years ago, and I was so happy to find that time had stopped and it was just as I had remembered it. The gardens are beautiful, the food was so good, and the beaches are pristine. The warm clear water provided beautiful snorkeling. Swimming with the giant manta rays was the high... More
