A very good quality hotel which I would recommend for both couples and families. The room we stayed in was well placed and nicely kept. Our room had a double made up of two singles pushed together which sometimes slipped apart in the night due to having no friction on the floor, this was only a mild inconvenience and the... More

My husband chose this hotel for our holiday with 2 teenage kids. It was fantastic from the beginning. We had a bit of a wait at check in and our roomwasn't ready, so they advised we go to lunch first. We arrived in the restaurant to lots of fresh food and lots of choice, including freshly cooked king prawns! Food... More

This is like two hotels in one. It caters for families very well with plenty of entertainment for adults and children. It also has adult only space though which was perfect for a couple like us. The all inclusive aspect is excellent with food available 24 hours if you want it. We went in the school holidays so the buffet... More

We went for relaxing, nothing to do or see holidays just before high season. Hotel is big and you have to be ready for masses, it could be a noisy in public areas, but you can find some corners for privacy. Surprisingly it is much better located than other all inclusive nearby, you can walk to the Papagayos beach easly.... More

We have just returned from what was overall a really pleasant stay at the Sandos. The two considerations though which could help when deciding whether to choose this hotel could be: -despite the name "Beach Resort", the nearest beach does not appear to be very family friendly, as it is largely rocky (although really lovely to look at from the...

The hotel is in a great location for Papagayo Beach and an walk or short taxi ride to Rubicon Marina. Without exception, the staff could not have been more hard working, friendly and efficient. The food was varied and of a reasonable standard for a hotel. If you fancy a change there are many restaurants in Rubicon Marina and Playa... More
