Get on their website and attend one of the cultural events. They sponsor music, drama, and artistic events, the architecture is beautiful, and the Bar Restaurant is fabulous. It's a bit of a drive to get there, but well worth it.

A quick summary of the Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort who be to say that it is stunning. However, that would not do it justice. Upon arrival our group of women were greeted with cold towels and fresh juice (guava-something?) in the large, open air “lounge” which was their version of a lobby. Instead of a front desk they have podiums... More

The pictures of the hotel don't do it justice. Is is so much better! We had a great stay. Our hotel room was comfortable, modern and roomy with a nice balcony. Great pool area for kids (2 more pools for adults). We saw monkeys daily eating berries from trees around the pool. Staff was super friendly, knowledgeable and quick. Because... More

I cannot say enough good things about our stay last week at Andaz Papagayo. The surroundings were awe inspiring and tranquil at the same time.

What can I say bad about this place? It's one of the newer properties in the area not far from the Four Seasons. I'll be honest when I say, we ended up taking the shuttle over to the Four Seasons because they have a better beach than Andaz, that was great but their hotel wasn't as luxurious as you'd think....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Andaz Peninsula Papagayo stands quietly among the trees, overlooking the sapphire blue waters of Culebra Bay. With spectacular design, the first Latin American Andaz, was inspired by the organic forms and shapes of the native flora and fauna, using the shapes of cocoons and shells for the hotel's facilities, stimulating the senses of guests in new and refreshing ways. Each of the 153 rooms balance modern design with touches of character that blend into the natural surroundings, with woven textiles, solid woods and carved artifacts highlighting the rich Costa Rican aesthetic. Guestrooms and suites offer a spacious balcony with breathtaking bay and forest views. Four of the 21 suites feature plunge pools, and the Presidential Suite offer a private, full-sized pool. The unique gastronomic experience of the Andaz Peninsula Papagayo s Cuisine features three themed restaurants. Each one tells a story about our culture. Chao Pescao, a casual dining enclave nestled within the lush Guanacaste landscape offering a small plates menu and the mixologists' specialties, is our neighborhood place. Rio Bhongo, the meeting point, a place for everyone, a culinary "paseo"... Just like a farmer's market. Ostra is our signature restaurant, elegant, discreet and romantic, offering all kind of delicacies from the sea, carefully prepared using the most sophisticated culinary techniques. Totally open kitchens allow a distinctive interaction with chefs, making guests feel like if they were visiting family or the home of a friend. Onda Spa is a respite of energy, touch and evolution. Elevated into the trees of Costa Rica's rich tropical forest, guests at Onda set out on a journey to envigorate both body and soul. Blending Papagayo's culture, senses, smells and touches, treatments are individually tailored for each guest, directly addressing specific needs, goals and desires. Andaz Peninsula Papagayo has a free-flowing environment that means no desks, no processes, no formality and thus, no stress. The home-feel experience allows you to enjoy complimentary a health-minded mini bar, complimentary wi-fi through out the resort and a complimentary kids program. Hotels in this collection reflect the unique cultural scene and spirit of the surrounding neighborhood through their Andaz Salon program and are dedicated to creating natural and vibrant living spaces where travellers can indulge in their own personal sense of comfort and style. Andaz meaning personal style in Hindi, is infused with character and weaves itself into the fabric of its locale. Every detail is an opportunity to explore the uniqueness of the destination and every moment is a chance to discover something new. True to the Andaz brand, Andaz Peninsula Papagayo will reflect Costa Rica's Pura Vida philosophy, creating locally-inspired experiences and engaging guests in the local culture in a comfortable, unique atmosphere for which Andaz is known. ... more   less
