This hotel is perfect for budget vacations, however there are better options like condos for that price range. The service is terrible even when the staff is friendly, there are not enough people to handle the hotel. The hotel is usually under staffed because of the lack of people that stay at this hotel. This is not a regular all... More

We just got back this morning from Sol Papagayo. I expected the worst I guess that's why it turned out way better than expected. I was upset with itravel2000 because the price dropped a week later I booked $1200 to $850 but because I used a $50 coupon I didn't qualify for price drop..but when another couple asked me how...

I stayed in Sol Papagayo Resort in February. I was travelling with my group and we stayed there for 5 nights. The hotel is located in very quiete place but for travelling with the group it was very good. The staff was very helpful and very nice, so I would like to say thank you all for your helpfulness.

My husband and I just returned from a 7 night stay at this resort, and we had very mixed reactions. As people have noted, it is very quiet and quite isolated - and this appealed to us. We weren't prepared, however, for just how quiet and isolated it is. There were some nights when we were 2 of only 3... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights in early December. That time of year is apparently the low season for the area as there were only a couple of other rooms at the resort occupied. The staff was amazing! The check-in staff, the waitress, the cook and the grounds-keepers all treated the few guests like family. I'm so sorry... More

I spent 5 nights at this hotel the last week of December. I will say I wasn't expecting much after reading some of the reviews but it was a last minute plan to stay in this area so there was little availability. I found Sol Papagayo very quiet, safe, and with friendly staff. My room was towards the back and... More

I cannot blame the working staff... Certainly the owner and/or the manager is not doing its job. First, please remove the word "resort" from the hotel title - the check-in process was the worst ever ... One of my friends was assigned to room that was already occupied... He opened the door and there was people inside!!!! Then they were... More

Arrived at the Sol Papagayo at 2.30pm and had left by 6.30pm ! The hotel was deserted, looked like it hadn't had anyone staying there for weeks. Staff were scruffy and unkempt. Pool area was covered in leaves and piles of animal excrement and infested with ants. Pool itself had parts which were green with algae and looked a health... More

this small hotel is not very advertised but is definitly a hidden gem. First of all its beautiful location, secluded, at the entrance of the astonishing Papagayo gulf. The romos are duplex villas with a very local twist. value is excellent for the offering. You can walk to the beach or use the pool. Contact concierge for wonderful tours packages... More
