I am on their (spotty) wifi currently and still have two days left during my stay. If you have upcoming reservations, change them! Bugs are ever present-- on food and drinks at the buffet (which features unappealing food and some that should be refrigerated given the oppressive heat) Buffet is open air-- no air conditioning, and bees are EVERYWHERE. Everyone... More

I came here with my guard up based on the bad trip advisor reviews. It seems like most of the bad reviews were petty complaints. I didn't have any problems the four nights I stayed here. The pool was nice and so was the room. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I also though the food was good, especially... More

I booked this vacation for my boyfriend and I. I read the reviews and didn't think they were too bad. We ended up staying for 2 hours before we upgraded to the Grand Papagayo, and I really do mean upgrade. The staff was Allegro was super friendly and management was very helpful and got us upgraded in record time. Apparently... More

Wonderful place!! The hotel staff were friendly and so helpful! The a/c in the rooms was wonderful, and the showers were spacious and had great pressure. Rooms were also equipped with safes. The resort is on a hill so the hotel conveniently offers shuttles around the resort. One of my favorite things was seeing all the local wildlife that wanders... More

Our family of 4 two adult and 2 child went there from June 21 to 29 and it was a average hotel nothing special if you have a stroller be prepared to carry it down a flight of stairs every time you go the pool or restaurant. The food in the buffet was really good and the ala carte was... More

I want to warn anyone that is debating between the Allegro Papagayo and the Grand Papagayo. I was between the two resorts and boy , did I choose the wrong one. My husband and I arrived here in the beginning of July. We were coming to Costa Rica for our 2 year anniversary. When we arrived we were told by... More

I'll start off saying that without the amazing resort staff this stay would have been "meh". However the staff Chris, Marilyn, Karen, Caro, Jas and others who I am forgetting to mention, made my stay so much fun! If any of them are lost the resort will be losing a huge part of what makes them decent. Good job guys!

I love to travel internationally. This was my family's annual vacation (husband, teen, and mom) so 3 of us. This by far was the worst ever. The food was less than deplorable except for lunch when there were french fries of some sort, the only small market is in the lobby of checkin(who does that?) and guess what it closes... More

The following review is based on my opinions and actually having visited and sent past clients to this property. I have retired as a travel agent and now just enjoy the travel. The Allegro Papagayo is not a 5 star resort, so please do NOT book this property expecting a 5 star resort or the extras you would come to... More

Let me start by saying this is the first NEGATIVE review I've ever posted. Usually if there's N issue, I'm in customer service, I'll talk to someone as people and we're good. Ok... My husband and I booked a 7 night adventure tour through Costa Rica and the 3 nights here were supposed to be our relaxing, care-free time. We... More
