Food was very good plenty of choice every day. All the staff were very friendly and made everyone welcome. The whole hotel including rooms kept spotlessly clean, could'nt fault anything.... More

Second time here and yes I will be back. Great food with lots of variety. The complex always feels relaxed. Would definitely recommend it. Now my gripe. And not a criticism of the hotel either. How sad you are if you feel your idea of a holiday is to set your alarm clock so you can go and place your... More

The Sandos Papagayo hotel has the lot! From the five pools to the astro' tennis courts the hotel has something for everyone. Breakfast had the usual food, also with pancakes and fresh milk (which is a change). For lunch, there was always fresh pizza in the Italian restraunt and pasta (the chef would make it infront of you). In the... More

We visited Sandos at the end of June for a weeks break. The hotel is situated at the very end of the prom walkway from Playa Blanca which takes around 20 mins to walk to the pretty harbour. The beach directly opposite the hotel is volcanic and quick stoney but if you turn right out of the hotels front entrance... More
