My wife and I spend 9 nights at the Andaz Resort in February. The resort and location are beautiful. However, see my note regarding the location at the end of this review. The accomodations are first class with private balconies with great views. The facilities are extremely well maintained. The resort has two beaches, one black sand and the other... More

This has been a brutal winter - so my husband and I were looking for a place to escape over presidents week with our 4 year old son. The Andaz Peninsula Papagayo resort was the answer! We were able to take a direct flight from Newark to Liberia - and once we landed were able to get to the hotel... More

We just returned from an amazing trip to Andaz Papagayo. Such a beautiful part of the world! The hotel is located on a gated peninsula with the Four Seasons, Prieta Beach Club, Golf Course, & a handful of private estates. It's quite secluded; at least a 20-30 minute drive to the nearest town, so if you're looking for nightlife and... More

The Andaz is beautifully designed, carved in to a hillside, which gives it a close-to-nature feel. It is an unobtrusive resort, and you don't have to try hard to see monkeys, iguanas and parrots around the property. It is very low key and laid-back, so perfect if you're looking for relaxation. There are two small beaches which are nicely laid... More

In a nutshell, the service at the Andaz is in trouble. Checked in last week and spent 6 days there. On arrival, we were blown away by the view and our room. And just to be clear, this can be a five star place, they just need to work harder on the service of the guest. Some service issues do... More

Spent 3 nights February 2015 in Oceanview Room after touring Arenal and Monteverde inland sights. Located < 30 minutes drive to/from Liberia Airport. Outstanding rooms, service and amenities. Lobby/pool/spa/restaurant employees are always eager and enthusiastic to assist and transport you by golf cart across property.

We just returned from our annual family vacation - this year to the Andaz. We travel 6 adults and 6 children ranging from 2-12.

To put our review in perspective, we usually stay somewhere from AirBnB or something closer to a hostel than a resort. That being said, we loved the room at this resort and it's probably the nicest room we've ever stayed in. We got free nights to use from a Hyatt credit card and used them here. We didn't have meals... More
