I will begin by saying that the staff at this hotel, in the restaurants, goes above and beyond their call of duty to make your stay enjoyable. I cannot rave enough about Ms.Alba and Carlitos at the buffet and Italian/Mexican restaurants. Thank you and Kudos for all of your hard work. The hotel itself is ok. The grounds have amazing... More

My stay at this resort overall was a very satisfying experience. You definitely have to put some work into the commuting around the resort but the views and the animals you see along the way make it a very interesting walk .Especially after all that eating and drinking you do on the resort the walks pay off . The food... More

I had a great time with my wife and 7 year old. The beer and food flowed like water and the staff was wonderful. Do yourself a favor, if asked by Marilyn, Karen or Enrique (in the fun club), to do an activity, do it! You won't be sorry! These folks are great with adults and kids. Good job, friends!... More

My best friend and I recently stayed at the Allegro Papagayo for a 9 night stay. After reading some of the reviews from the previous month we were worried about what we would find when we arrived. I will first say that this is not a 5 star resort, nor does it advertise itself as such so we went in... More

The staff at Allegro Papagayo was amazing and we truly enjoyed our stay for mine and my girlfriend's birthday trip! Thank you Marilyn for being an excellent entertainer as well as a good friend! Looking forward to seeing all the staff again someday. Had an amazing time despite of the ever present bees, but that's not really the resort's fault.

Our room in bldg. 10 was very nice. Fantastic view. Thanks to Marvin for getting us "old people" a room at the bottom of the hill. Great AC, clean & plenty of towels. Our only complaint was the lack of bottle water in the room. The "teens" loved Christopher. He was a great entertainer. Carlos took good care of us... More

This place is marketing to Canadian teenagers and brings bus loads of them every day. These were the most trashy group of kids we have ever seen. They were using horrible language, bad gestures and nasty sayings on their Tshirts. Would not want to take children here because of it. The maid service was horrible. They would forget to leave...

We came here August 2nd through the 9th and had 4 people in our group. We thought the food was pretty solid considering it was an all inclusive resort. There is a ton of bees around the entire resort though. IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO BEES DO NOT GO HERE! The bees are pretty docile and will generally just swarm... More

First thing you must remember about this hotel is that it is the cheapest all inclusive in Costa Rica. So the overall value I think is pretty good. The resort is on the side of a very steep hill which provides excellent views of the bay but is not for those with any mobility issues. There are shuttle vans that... More
