My boyfriend and I went to Sandos Papagayo in late June for a week's holiday. Our room was very spacious and the bed was huge, however not the most comfortable. The bathroom was also very spacious and nicely designed, apart from there being some grime around the bath. We arrived after 11pm, after all the food and all inclusive drinks... More

The hotel is great in lots of ways. Rooms light and clean. Royal elite dining room really lovely for breakfast and evening meal, doesn't feel so much like a "canteen" but the food is the same as in the main restaurant, really lovely with plenty of choice. Oriental restaurant not as we know it but ok. Pools are lovely, not... More

Excellent family hotel. Rooms spotless with maid attendance daily. Choice of restaurants (4 overall) and quality of food very good. Various pools including an adult pool. Pool side entertainment decent (aqua aerobics, water polo). Only downside was the lack of a decent beach close to the hotel.

My sister and I went for a week at the beginning of May and the hotel was about 2/3 full. The room was clean and very adequate and I would say slightly larger than some all inclusive rooms I have stayed in. It also had a balcony which on breezy days was a sheltered blessing! There seemed to be plenty... More
