The view was absolutely beautiful and the service was excellent! Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. I was there in December and the weather was perfect. Shuttle service was available 24/7 and prompt. This experience is well worth the cost.

I was thinking this hotel was a good value given that it was all inclusive. In the end, I wished would have stayed somewhere else. The hotel was crowded, the food wasn't very good (even though it was free). Our accommodations (ocean view double) was barely enough space for my 2 kids and my husband and I to move around.... More

We hired Costa Rica FAYLA tours during our vacations at the Hilton Papagayo in November, 2014 and it was one of our best fishing experiences. We had great weather that day and we travelled for about 30 min to our fishing destination. It was a very pleasant trip, we trolled with downriggers for about an hour before we got an... More

We just returned from 7 days at the Hilton Papagayo. After reading many previous reviewers comments I feel that I do have something to add. Yes the hotel and the rooms are a bit dated. That is really an issue tho that I feel lies with Hilton proper and should be addressed with the Hilton parent company. It actually wouldn't... More

Just spent 10 days at the Hilton Papagayo. I booked this trip about a year ago and have been reading the reviews since. First of all the rooms. They are spread out over many acres. Many of them are 2 units to one bungalow. Some are in more like hotel rooms. We were in Room 250, on top of the... More

This was my third visit to the Hilton Papagayo and the first trip to bring our 3 children. My children loved the stay at the hotel. We all enjoyed the meals, pool, beach and friendly staff. Allan, Imer and Kevin were awesome at pool and beach activities.

My family and I were scheduled to stay at the Hilton Papagayo Resort and Spa for one week in December. We only stayed for one night. While the natural beauty of the location is striking, the resort itself leaves a little something to be desired. This resort is advertised as a four star resort but I would give it no... More
