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

Our stay was between 04/10/14 and 14/10/14 My family and I have visited this hotel at least ten times between us and I have to say me and my partner will never return here. Lots of very positive reviews on here but having been there several times I can tell you all that this once great hotel has gone down... More

We stayed in this hotel, Royal Elite service, for week at the beginning of October and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending it. I won't leave a detailed review as other posters have done this for me but I will take the opportunity to have a swipe at people who seem to enjoy trying to find fault. Some of... More

Overall the hotel is good but probably not the 4 star it claims to be. It is huge and spread over a big area with accommodation in different blocks. The nearest ones can be noisy, but outdoor activities shut down at 11pm. Blocks A, B and C are quieter. Staff throughout very friendly and helpful. Location. It is rather isolated.... More

We stayed at the Sandos Papagayo, Playa Blanca from 4/10/14 to 14/10/14 as a couple, and I would say that during our stay it was probably mostly families that were visiting. Although I do not have any problems with this, as I knew it was a family hotel before I went, I feel the complex was big enough to have... More
