We spent a wonderful week at the Hilton Papagayo Costa Rica with our two small children. After reading a few reviews on here I made a request to have a room fairly close to the main pool. We were in room 125 and it was perfect! We were within walking distance to everything except the italian restaurant. That wasn't an... More

Everything was wonderful. We were there for our honeymoon. Mostly couples or families. One doesn't have to leave the property to enjoy. Staff and people were friendly. Average rooms/villas but one hardly stays in the room but excellent private access beach.

Great hotel, friendly service. They went out of their way to help us plan a dinner on the beach for our son who was getting married the next weekend. The lady in the sales and catering dept that helped us (an't remember her name) was fantastic. The beach was great, food good. Highly recommend.

This resort was amazing. Everything that I read on the Hilton website was completely true-including the beautiful pictures of the property! The food was good. I recommend La Cosecha for dinner as it is the most authentic Costa Rican food. Rubi at the kids' club made the trip most memorable for my kids. Each day they could not wait for... More

Wonderful hotel. Extremely nice staff, especially Julio. All inclusive well worth the money. Food was wonderful. Beautiful little tide pools to explore on the beach. Only complaint is that the AC didn't work so well.
