My husband and I stayed at Sol Papagayo for 12 nights in late April 2013. We have been told that it is recently under new management. Our experience was great and beyond our expectations having read the reviews. The food was good, fresh and healthy. The entire resort was very clean and the service was 10 star (always with a genuine smile)! There were not a lot of other guests as it was the end of the tourist season. The pool is clean, it was vacuumed every morning and the leaves removed several times a day. Some of the fluff from the trees remains on the bottom giving rise to a few cloudy patches. This is very light material and difficult to vacuum as it moves with the slight current produced by the advancing vacuum head. I think this has been mistaken as algae by some previous commenters. It is large enough for a good swim. The beach directly in front of the resort walk has some stones however, 50 metres to the right there are very few stones and further along the beach there are many great spots. We had planned to rent a car but found plenty to do by walking to Playa Buena (5 minutes) and Playa Hermosa (40 minutes) as well as along our own beach to the right (40 minutes to the end). We generally went for long walks at 5:30 am before it got too hot. We really liked the fact that there was no loud entertainment. The guests who really liked Sol Papagayo are very well travelled people who do not need planned entertainment. We were constantly entertained by the monkeys, iguanas and a great variety of birds. We also did two tours, one to Nicaragua. Each room has it own private patio. Everything is on one level (no waiting for elevators). This was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had and we both felt so rejuvenated at the end. We will definitely return.
