I took my best friend to Costa Rica as I know she is an adventure lover. I think that our trip exceeded all her expectations and at times she was giddy with excitement! This was all thanks very much to Vargas Tours and our most amazing tour guide Alonso! Vargas Tours is a smaller tour company and is very personal.... More

I know there are alot of reviews on here about how bad this hotel was. I don't understand how they can say such things. This hotel was great. The views from the hotel are amazing. The only downfall of the hotel if there is any is the hills from the pool to the suites. However they have shuttle buses that... More

We were bitten by insects continuously.In the evening over supper the smell from the septic system pervaded my olfactory organs.The management hired teenagers to make noise all night long and destroy the place.Loud primative music medaled with my mind all day long.The management took no responsability for the damage that an open vent in the pool did to a friends...

After reading all these bad and good reviews,we decided to stay only 2 nights at the Occidental Allegro. Even when this wasn´t our main destiny, our room was small, lacking of decoration, but at least it was clean. The food was just fine, buffet had a good selection. Everything went as we spected. The best part is the ocean view,... More

Wow, Costa Rica, what a beautiful country full of friendly people. My wife and I decided to stay at the Allegro Papagayo All-Inclusive Resort by Occidental for our honeymoon. This was our first experience staying in an all-inclusive resort and my first time in Costa Rica (my wife had been to Costa Rica in 2005). The resort has a gorgeous... More

Don't stay at the Allegro Papagayo or its sister hotel the Occidental Grand Papagayo nearby if the front desk is any indication; front desk staff were indifferent & borderline rude. I can't even write a review of the room or food or beach or anything because the hotel declined our second room reservation so we were not allowed to check... More

Beach - We wanted to swim in the ocean and lay down on the beach. This is not the right place. Its a black sand beach and not very clean. No one swims in the water. Hotel - Location - wonderful. However, its isolated. If you need to go anywhere you need a car or get a taxi. No walking... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon in March of 2007. Costa Rica is beautiful can't wait to go back, but hotel was not the nicest. The rooms are the worst. They need some serious upgrading. There were a lot of loud drunk kids that looked like they were about 12 years old staying at the resort. When I called the... More

I would visit Costa Rica again tomorrow but would not stay at this hotel again. The rooms were desparately in need of a facelift we had to swap our first one , the staff at reception were pretty useless; people were having difficulty getting safe keys and as a result one couple was robbed. However, the food was excellent and... More

We booked a week at this resort through First Choice and like other holiday-makers were relatively concerned by the negative reviews. We went with low expectations but we were positively surprised on arrival. The arrival was well co-ordinated and we were checked in on the coach to the hotel, given our room numbers and wrist bands and information about the... More
