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

My husband and I stayed at Sol Papagayo for 12 nights in late April 2013. We have been told that it is recently under new management. Our experience was great and beyond our expectations having read the reviews. The food was good, fresh and healthy. The entire resort was very clean and the service was 10 star (always with a...

We were at this resort from April 5 -13th. There were very few people there at the time so the staff got to know us very quickly and gave us extra special attention. They were excellent, especially David, the bartender, Carlos and DIane our waiter, and Manuel, the chef who is an excellent cook and should have his own tv... More

My husband and I just returned from this resort. I was a little worried about this resort when we booked because of some of the reviews. However, when we got there we were impressed. The lobby/bar/restaurant area of the hotel is very well kept and clean. The rooms, although basic, were very clean and large. The pool was a good... More

I recently spent 2 weeks here and it was wonderful. The most serene holiday I've ever had thus far. The staff were magnificent as were the surroundings. I would definetly go back to this resort and recommend it to others.

We loved this place. Of course, this is not a 5-stars hotel but the personnel is more than sympathic. They are really please to help and you feel like a part of the family. The room is clean and spacious. You do not have that much choice for the food but it change everynight and it is good. Personnally we... More

Our week at this resort was likely the worst travel experience I've ever had. I simply can't understand the positive reviews that appear here, which also were the reason I selected this resort as a "last-minute" trip from SunWing Travel Group in mid December. Fellow travellers, beware! I wrote a letter to the CEO of Sunwing Travel Group on January... More

Breakfast with the iguanas and sitting by the pool with the howler monkeys, what more could you ask for. Staff friendly, room comfortable, lots of trips on offer should you choose to participate. Pool cleaned regularly and beach close-by.

My husband and I weren't experienced travellers back in 2008 when we stayed there but I have to say, this place is totally under-rated. The first night our A/C did leak and some of our stuff got wet but we were upgraded immediately at no charge, and, treated with respect. The staff was wonderful friendly, and courtious! It is a...

This little place re-opened under new management two months ago and they're gradually renovating sections of the resort. It's quiet, there's direct access to a nice beach and very friendly staff. There were also only nine of us staying that week, so we got lots of attention. The wildlife even on the property was pretty neat: howler monkeys that tended... More
