The hotel is overall very nice, clean, tidy and friendly staff. The standard rooms are a little dated but again they're clean and tidy with comfortable beds and lovely views from the balcony (we had a sea view). The 'air con' is little more than a cold built in fan but was acceptable. The restaurants and bars were all very... More

Room was good and I thought it was going to be tough going. The food at lunch and dinner (evening) was much better. They have a carvery on both... More

Just returned from a weeks all inclusive holiday with my partner and her children at this fine hotel and these are my own personal thoughts. On arrival we checked in and was given a map of the complex and instructions about the place. On first impressions we thought my god, it's massive and indeed it is but after a couple... More

When we first arrived after a long transfer, I have to admit I was slightly disappointed as not quite as I expected. The hotel is vast and was getting busier by the day which made the restaurant experience slightly chaotic, however I noticed they are extending the restaurant so they are addressing this problem. The food was actually pretty good... More

Once again, back at the wonderful Sandos Papagayo. This hotel, for the price is hard to beat! Our next holiday will be somewhere else, but every time we go somewhere else, we have to admit that the Papagayo really does take some beating, so we just keep coming back, and it seems to get better everytime. On this visit, we... More
