We used to say we would never go back to the same hotel but after visiting the Papagayo for the 1st time in 2008 that changed! We love this hotel!! This is a large complex at the far end of Playa Blanca and is about 35 mins walk from the Marina Rubicon. Walk is along a coastal walkway and is... More

This is our third consecutive year of holidaying in the Canaries at this time of the year. We love the sunny break to cut through winter. Last year we went to Gran Canaria, year before Tenerife (will explain my point later. We have 3 kids aged 11, 9, 7. Two oldest are girls, then boy just so you can compare... More

GOOD POINTS Nicely located next to the sea with comfortable, large, sea-facing room. 20 minute walk to Marina. Food quality good. Good outside space with plenty of beds. Clean rooms and general areas. NOT SO GOOD POINTS Public rooms seem dedicated to kids with pool tables/table tennis tables/amusements throughout the atrium. Entertainment room is a cold 'barn' of a place,... More

The hotel is the last one in Playa Blanca, next to the Papagayo beaches. You can literally walk out of the hotel into nature. On the other side is a 30min walk along the coastal path to the marina and town of Playa Blanca. The layout of the hotel is beautiful, rooms are spacious and very clean with a large... More

We got back home on Thursday night from a wonderful week at the Sandos. When filling out the guest survey before leaving, we seriously could not find any reason to mark every single box as 'excellent' - I genuinely do not understand some of the negative comments that have been made below. Our biggest highlight was the variety and quality... More

We have just returned from a last minute holiday at this hotel. It was a very cheap deal but we got amazing treatment. The room was a basic one but had views across the cliffs and we could just see the sea. We were on the back of Block G on the top floor and our balcony was in the... More

We visited the resort during half term as a family of three....myself and two children aged 11 and 14. We were anxious to escape the winter and arrived frazzled after a tortuous transfer and four hour flight. We were immediately delighted with our sea view room and fell to sleep in large, comfortable beds. The rooms are fairly rustic in... More
