This was our second visit in 3 months. We have enjoyed our time there so much that we are planning our next visit. Here's what we like. An exceptionally friendly staff will treat you with respect and kindness. Housekeeping women often sing as they work, are cheerful, and appreciate a conversation. Rooms are clean and well maintained, and as the resort makes improvements, new mattresses and bedding have been appreciated. The management team works hard to provide a safe, pleasant space. The beach is clean, security evident and other guests friendly. We personally have no difficulty with the hours at the bar as our day begins with the morning beach walk, we swim, read and snorkel during the day, visit with others during happy hour at Papagayo, and then have an evening walk around the property before calling it a day.
As the previous reviewer mentioned, there is a sense of caring and inclusiveness, without being overbearing. Personal space is respected and new friends welcomed. It couldn't be better, and I'd readily recommend it to anyone comfortable with or wanting to try a clothing optional experience.
