Fabulous restaurant with imaginative decor and furnishings. Service is of the highest of standards, like something you would expect in a 5* New York restaurant. Menu is fabulous, and vastly diverse. The food is exquisite, and is served with flair and attention to detail. Prices are fair, representing good value for money - but think twice if you are on... More

This was my second visit to Costa Rica, a beautiful country, with amazing view, great food, and fantastic people. While my entire trip to Costa Rica was an absolute dream, I'm afraid that my visit to Hotel La Costa de Papito was exactly the opposite - a complete nightmare! From the rude front-desk, to the terrible service, all the way... More

My wife and I stayed in bungalow and could not be more happy! The hotel is in the middle of the jungle, but a two minute walk to a beautiful beach. Everything was clean and comfortable and the staff was amazing. The breakfast was amazing both days with a buffet and the ones with food made to order. My wife... More

Everything was top notch. Clean rooms with all facilities, except air conditioning of course. Air is NOT required because of the temperate climate. Although high-humidity is standard, it does cool down a bit in the evening and nighttime; very pleasant sleeping considering you are in a jungle environment. Hotel restaurant serves great food. We tried some items we weren't sure... More

This amazing resort just what I needed! I came to La Costa De Papito with two friends of mine to celebrate a birthday milestone and it couldn't have been a better trip. The three of us girls were treated like royalty by the staff. At first I thought it was because someone spilled the beans about it being my birthday... More

10 of us stayed here, we had a great time. Bungalows are beautiful and set in wonderful surroundings. Staff are all lovely and made us feel very welcome. Entertainment was great. Food lovely. Beach over the road and a nice walk into to town.

We visited Costa Rica for the first time this March and were not quite sure what to expect. Hotel La Costa de Papito was an ideal place to find our feet. We stayed for a week and enjoyed the lovely private bungalow, the very friendly staff, excellent food and lovely gardens. The hotel is very safe and staff are very... More

Thanks for such a lovely review! We have over the past few months invested in 100% cotton sheets, vibrant green and purples from IKEA and the remain but a few 50% polyester. The suggestion has been noted. The high season ended with Easter so as we do each year we will review the bicicles and reassemble a few good bikes... More

This hotel offered many great things. The people were very helpful, the food was delicious, and it was walking distance from the beach. Everything was priced very cheaped compared to other places I stayed in. Our room was beautiful and we even saw a sloth hanging on a tree right outside our room. Be sure to ask for "Coco" he...

We enjoyed our stay. Food was exceptional and the staff genuinely polite and friendly. The facilities are creative and suited to the environment. The beach is across the street and an easy walk. The cottages are uniqueue and the hammock a welcomed rest.

This place was an amazing place to stay! The only thing that could be improved is that it doesn't have a pool. Which wouldn't have been too much of an issue, but the ocean just a short walking distance away is rough and not ideal for swimming and just relaxing in the ocean. (That section of the beach though has... More
