Just back from a 10 day holiday with my mum and we couldn't have asked for anything more! Our room was lovely with a sea view and even got upgraded to a flat screen tv half way through the holiday. The air con was great at night and the shower was really good. We ate in every restaurant apart from... More

We stayed in this resort for 1 week on all inclusive basis and it was the best holidays ever! The location is excellent with stunning beaches not too far away (30mins walk or so - so not really suitable for families with small children, but excellent for couples). Our room was spacious and airy. The pools were never overcrowded. The... More

Date of stay 9th to 19th October This was our second stay at the hotel and never again! We had a number of minor problems which spoilt our stay and despite personally speaking to the manager, and getting his reassurance that these would be solved, nothing was resolved. In fact what he told me turned out to be untrue. Here... More

I have recently returned from the sandos papagayo and cant wait to go back!!! The rooms are comfortable and very spacious. We were maximum occupancy and had plenty of space especially for hanging clothes. The food was lovely with a huge selection for all 3 meals. It is around a 15 min walk into the harbour and around a further... More

Returned last week from a 2 week break at the Sandos Papagayo in Playa Blanca and had a lovely holiday.It is by far the biggest hotel we have stayed in and was quite confusing finding your way round in the first few days. We were in Block C on the 5th floor and the room was superb and spacious with... More

Have just arrived back from a week at the Sandos Papagayo Beach Resort Hotel and would definitely go back. The transfer wasn't too bad, after reading reviews I expected to be on the coach hours but although it is the last drop we were only on the coach an hour max after all other drop offs. The hotel is very... More

Just back from a lovely long weekend with five girlfriends. We had a lovely time, the weather was good, barring few isolated showers and the food was very good with an excellent choice. We had booked one night at the Mexican in the hope that it was waiter service but once we realised it wasn't we cancelled our reservation for... More
