My husband and I just got back from a wonderful week at the Andaz, and we were both so sad to leave. Everything was absolutely extraordinary! Below you'll find a detailed and honest review of our experience. First, we booked roundtrip transportation through the hotel. Although it was about $30 more than the standard shuttle service, it was definitely worth... More

We stayed at Andaz for 7 days and would not have changed a thing about our experience. Since we were there during the off season (May) the resort was only at about 25% capacity but it was great because everything was always available and we received a very personalized experience from the staff. We especially loved a few specific staff... More

I stayed for 10 nights at Andaz Papagayo Resort and it was one of the most memorable getaways I have ever had! Upon arriving at the hotel you are instantly in zen. The check in area is open and looks out into the trees. On check in you are handed a refreshing juice and snack whilst the staff take care... More

We started our trip across Costa Rica with 2 nights at Andaz. It was excellent. It's a very quiet hotel. There was no music playing at the pool, and other guests were very quiet and reserved. It's definitely a relaxing and romantic stay. We enjoyed a night of live music and a mixology class in the evenings, both of which... More

Dear AlyssaLane08, thank you very much for making us part of your Costa Rican vacation. I'm very glad you were able to relax and enjoy some romantic moments with your partner and at the same time have some fun and good vibes in Chao Pescao with the live music and mixology. We hope you will find time for another trip... More

From the moment you walk into the open air lobby with the purple 1960 Volkswagon wagon all decked out with surfboard on the roof rack, you know this will be a great experience. The lobby is just a couple of podiums facing the ocean. Then you get to your room. All tricked out with lights in the bathroom and under... More

My husband and I came to the Andaz property on the day of his birthday. We mentioned it at check in and the hotel staff came by later with a birthday dessert- it was just the simple touches that made the stay memorable. The room: We stayed in building 2 (near to pool and the main dining area) and had... More

Breathtaking - it's the easiest way to sum up the Andaz Peninsula Papagayo! This destination was the last leg on our Costa Rica vacation and it was the perfect way to wrap up a vacation! I corresponded with the GM before I arrived and they were very helpful in providing any assistance and accommodations I requested. The property is absolutely... More

We had a terrific experience at the Andaz Papagayo. Don't know where to start, we stayed for 6 nights and our already high expectations were way exceeded.

My wife and I honeymooned at the Andaz Papagayo, it was incredible. Across the board we were met with friendly and engaging employees. The property itself is lovely, our room was amazing, the food was superb, and it was very difficult for us to leave. After hearing about some travel delays, the staff put together a ride around the property... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a great time. The hotel is really modern and from the moment that you arrive the staff will pamper you. It's one of the bigger hotels in Costa Rica, however, even at 80% capacity the hotel never felt crowded and you never saw all the other guests. The rooms are very spacious... More
