Upon check in we got a greeter at the door who helped translate for me to the taxi driver. Then we got cold towels to wipe our faces and juice drinks consisting of pineapple and mint. The room took a while to get ready.

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Visited this place in late February for 5 days and found the whole experience at this resort to be absolutely fantastic. It is located a little out of the way on the peninsula, around a 40 minute drive from Liberia airport. The hotel offers transfers from the airport and the very friendly hotel staff (who all speak great English) gave...

I could not say how highly I recommend the Andaz Papagayo! The serene setting, simplistic yet amazing decor, combined with impeccable service was all one could ask for. The room itself was just as gorgeous as the resort grounds. My favorite part of each day was sitting in my treehouse like balcony while enjoying the sights of the bay, with...

This place is off the chart amazing. World-class architecture and rooms, great service, great food, wonderful grounds. Best thing is all the wildlife on the property. We had both white-face and howler monkeys stroll by our porch every day, tons of hummingbirds in the morning and there is a large group of Coati near the spa area (I counted 15...

The staff was superb, as was the general manager Ricardo. The food, the activities were so first class. This was our second trip to Costa Rica but our first time to the Andaz. The entire staff will go out of their way to do anything they can for you. It was a wonderful trip. We highly recommend The Andaz.

My family just got back from the Andaz, Costa Rica. It was our first time there. From the moment we arrived our breath was taken away. Nestled amongst trees, vegetation and animals, I felt like we could have never left the hotel! The staff greeted us with a cocktail and checked us in to a gorgeous suite. This is no...

I have just come back from 3 nights at Andaz Peninsula Papagyo Resort and had the best time and can not recommend enough. We chose this hotel because my travel companion had Hyatt points and we could get a free getaway for a few days. I was a bit skeptical as I normally prefer high end boutique hotels and wasn't...

My wife and I just got back from this property. It was truly a great experience! The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. The rooms are very nice, we stayed in a King with a partial view. The shower was huge and there is also a very nice porch to sit out and relax during the evening if you desire....

We stayed here for 6 nights. This was the 5th and final stay in our CR holiday. The welcome was swift and professional and we were taken by golf buggy with our luggage to our room in block 3.

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
