“Terrific Breakfast Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

We stayed at the resort for 6 days and had breakfast here every day. Made to order omelets, crepes, and pancakes. The freshest fruit, a variety of smoothies, yogurts, cereal, etc. And the juice of the day... AMAZING! These are just some of the things that we tried. I would not let any negative reviews sway you from eating here. Five stars from us and can't wait to come back!!!

“We left after our appetizer...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

For as wonderful as this property is and for as delightful as the staff is, this restaurant missed the mark.

This a mixed review in that the breakfast buffet was great... but that's were it stopped.

We popped in for dinner after an active day in the mountains... so, famished.

We started with some apps intending to order our entrees next. After a bite I pushed mine aside and my wife's was marginal; we decided we were done and bailed. We ended up ordering a salad thru room service.

“Breakfast Buffet and juice of the day-just do it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Papagayo was solid for dinner and downright delicious at breakfast. The talapia wrapped in swiss chard was nice. The staff called us by name after a very short visit, they even knew what we liked for breakfast and automatically took great care of us. What a nice staff!

“Food was discusting. Not eatable.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

We went to have lunch in the Papagayo restaurant. The food was totally discusting. 3 plates for 3 persons just not eatable, worst food we have ever experienced in a hotel. Unacceptable for a resort like 4seasons.
