We spent 5 days here on our recent vacation. We arrived early in the morning and though our room wasn't ready until the afternoon, we were allowed to enter the property and begin enjoying the resources. Breakfast was good every morning and offered a slight variation each day. The options at Bocadillo were fantastic. Dinner increasingly got better with the... More

The food and drinks were great the people were warm and welcoming. It was a beautiful setting the sunsets were amazing The hotel is right on the water which is... More

I'll start with positives. I spent here 2 nights with my wife. We loved the location of the resort on hills overlooking bay, fantastic landscapes, quite atmosphere and the best staff we have ever met. We liked food, drinks and activities (both included and paid extra) available for guests. It really appeared to as as a peace of paradise. On... More

My husband and I recently stayed at this resort for 7 days/6 nights. The staff was AMAZING! They are very friendly and they go out of their way to service your needs. Before booking this resort, I was a bit apprehensive because of the few negative reviews about the resort. Of the negative things mentioned, I have to strongly disagree!... More

My family and i stayed at the Hilton for 6 nights in a sea front room (which really means a sea view) it had two double beds and a decent enough bathroom with separate double sink area which useful when there is four of you sharing a room. I think we all got what we needed out of the holiday,... More

I am currently staying at that hotel and I have to admit that it is a great disappointment. Like I mentioned in my entry , shuttle guys and especially Julio Take great care of you but restaurants and bar service is poor if not terrible. They do not care if you need additional drink or just a coke, they rarely... More

Just returned from 8 days @ Hilton Papagayo. Great staff, David and Oscar at the pool bar were excellent and Kevin took me on a great kayak tour. He was very knowledgable. The food was very good, a lot of variety. We learned a little Spanish from Jafreth, we were a challenge. The rooms were clean and well stocked. The... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is very large and well equipped.The views from the ocean front rooms were wonderful - we had a view of the entire Papagayo gulf. Note that these rooms were at the top of the hill, and a bit of a climb, but were separate from the main pool area, and so was... More

The resort is built on the side of a hill. They have shuttle services but it's better just to walk (it burns calories so you can eat even more of the fantastic food). My wife and I absolutely loved this place. My parents would've hated the hills, so factor that into your decision.
