what was suppose to be a romantic trip with the boyfriend was quickly squashed with our unwanted affair with bed bugs! Our room was infested(like 10 generations) with them when we finally clued in that they were bed bugs confirmed by the locals...we expected to have a room change immediately like every good hotel should have done WRONG after being...

I had my destination wedding at the Occidental Allegro Papagayo. I will first say Harold the wedding planner is awesome and really went out of his way to make my day special. The view in the lobby where we had the ceremony was breathtaking, the photos were equally as beautiful. The only thing I was missing was a reception. We... More

The Wedding Planner I was recently in Costa Rica with 28 wonderful guests to attend a wedding I had planned with Harold. The help he offered was amazing from start to finish. He was very accommodating especially towards the end when I got a little Bridezilla on him. When we arrived at 9:30 he informed us that they had kept... More

Just got back from a trip to Costa Rica which ended at the Allegro Papagayo. Not worth the money I paid and I got it for a steal. The place is very run down, no one care to fix things up or update them, the food was terrible and the drinks were filled with sugary juices to mask the taste... More

Really enjoyed this resort! The food was very good, both at the buffet and at the al a carte restaurants. The staff had the clearing and seating of guests down to an art, that was like watching poetry in motion. The system was amazing to watch! The hotel rooms were fairly basic, and ours was tired for sure. That said,... More

I believe it to be 3.5 stars. The location was good. Our accommadation with view was great. We loved all the tropical fruit and salads at every meal and fresh eggs for breakfast. Some cooked food was good but meats were not great cuts and generally overcooked as was the fish. Service was very friendly and good everywhere on rhe... More

OK so the hotel is only 3-star and the rooms are a bit tired around the edges, but it is impeccably clean, most everything works, and if you judge your vacation by your room, you're in trouble. Besides, they will be closing shortly to do rennovations which should freshen things. Moreover, the food is OK if not inspired (you won't... More

Beautiful resort - nothing beats the view overlooking Papagayo bay. Don't worry about the hills, just go slow. Lots of wildlife, saw howler monkeys, white faced monkeys, iguana, monitors, leaf-cutter ants, tons of dragonflies, doves, raccoons, and coatimundis. Food was reasonable - chicken, fish and beef were really excellent. Fruit was a little disappointing. What was there was excellent but... More
