We had a wonderful time at the Hilton Papagayo, but there were some issues with our room. We were in Room 210 and it was not up to the Hilton standard. The bathroom sink faucet was not secure, the bathroom door was rusted and the finish of the tub was worn away in parts. The beds were comfortable but there... More

We stayed at the Hilton Papagayo in early April. While we enjoyed ourselves, I don't feel it meets the standards a 4-star property. What we liked: Everything is clean. Although it is a large property with a lot of rooms, it felt fairly private. It is a hilly property with nice views. We liked the walking path and the views... More

After traveling through Costa Rica, we were ready for some pampering. We traveled with our 3 teenage children and enjoyed this property. The rooms and grounds are beautiful. The staff is very friendly and eager to assist with plenty of activities. The spa was amazing!! Only thing I wasn't impressed with was the food and reservation system.

We had a great week long trip to Costa Rica. After reading some reviews we were not sure what to expect but everything was awesome. Service was always friendly and attentive. Our daughter spent one day in and out of the kids club and really enjoyed it. We used a private guide, Herson Segura. Highly, highly recommend him. He was... More

After reading previous reviews I wasn't quite sure what to expect! Checkin was great! Service was great! The property is gorg! We had a few ants in our room due to my kids spilling crumbs, the staff quickly came and sprayed! No more ants the rest of the stay! The food was great at all the restaurants! The portion sizes...

This resort is beautiful and the staff are very friendly and professional. From check in to check out the staff was attentive and helpful. Everyone spoke English, so our lack of Spanish was not a problem. The staff were very personable, always with a friendly greeting, remembering our names and which bungalow we were staying in. The only caveat I... More

Was an excellent experience. At first I was not sure how I would like the venue - thinking I expected more; I guess that was the New Yorker in me! After just a few hours though - I, WE, were in HEAVEN. Love the resort, the staff, the pool, the Papagayo Bay. All Inclusive with Delicious food, snack areas and... More

Our party of four stayed at the Hilton Papagayo for a long weekend (Thursday – Sunday). We had an excellent and very enjoyable stay! After arriving on an 11:00AM flight, we picked up a rental car and drove to the resort. When we parked outside reception, we were warmly welcomed. We checked-in and did not have any expectation of a... More

This was our first time to Costa Rica and selected this location as it is an easy 20 minute travel time from the airport and to many of the activities and tours.
