Just returned in time before more travel restrictions! For the price we paid we were delighted with the junior suite sea view room, bathrobes would have been a nice added touch. Obviously Covid has affected the staffing but we never had to wait at the bar to be served or the restaurant to be seated. Evening meal could be improved but there was always something to eat. The walk to the Rubicon Marina is spectacular. Market on Wednesday and Saturday. We look forward to returning very soon. Saturday.

Winter sun break - last week November. All Inclusive. Hotel very clean. Room cleaned every day. Located almost at the end of the promenade - 15 mins to Marina Rubicon and 40 mins to Playa Blanca, You get your steps in. If you wanted to walk into town across the main roads, away from the coast then it was a bit quicker. Supermarket 400 m away. If you want a change of scene, but don't want to go all the way into Playa Blanca,then turn left on the promenade and then go left to the front of the Gran Castillo and there's a small commercial centre with about 6 bars/restaurants. Best meal was breakfast which was probably helped by being pretty much the same every day. The other meals less so and at times the evening meal really let the hotel down. All Inc drinks were good value - Amstel lager and Smirnoff vodka. Bar staff and waiting staff good. Never had any problems with service and the upstairs lobby/terrace staff were excellent. Only took in 2 shows - a Freddy Mercury tribute and a Two Tenors show - both were enjoyable. 10 UK TV Channels Pool warm and it was great to have a swim in November. Good stay but with some attention to evening food could have been better. I now know that the Mirador Papagayo is here but would look at other places first if I returned to Playa Blanca

Stayed in this hotel several times. It has recently been refurbished. Set in a stunning location, walking distance to Papagayo beach, the marina, a little further on to Playa Blanca. The hotel is kept exceptionally clean all credit to housekeeping and ground staff. We had a sea view junior suite which was spacious, comfortable bed, nespresso machine, fridge, kettle, USB points, good hairdryer, sun beds on the balcony. Good environmental measures, paper cups etc, shower gel dispenser instead of tiny plastic bottles. We had an all inclusive deal. The breakfast and lunch were good, but dinner was poor, little choice, bland and repetitive. We ate out after the first few nights. In previous stays the food was far better. Overall the all inc. was good value if you’re staying around the hotel during the day and for sundowners and nightcaps! There seems to be a shortage of staff which results in queues at reception and bar areas but the staff work hard and are polite and friendly. However the receptionist at check out was rude and unpleasant in her manner and didn’t even speak to us, which was a shame as it lets the hotel down and it is the last impression when leaving.

The hotel is lovely and in a great position with fantastic views. The pool is excellent and not too cold. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are cleaned daily with fresh towels. I was in a junior suite and I was expecting a little extra in there, some nice toiletries, welcome bottle of something, towels in the shape of a Swan...there was nothing to make you feel a little special and welcomed as other hotels do. I was a little unsure of the cleanliness of the communal areas such as the poolside toilets and those next to the restaurant as I never saw anyone cleaning these during the day. Although the hotel itself is lovely I have to agree with other reviewers regarding the food and check in. We had to wait for half an hour in a queue to check in and there were no welcome drinks on offer. Not good when it is an hour transfer from the airport. There was only ever one person on reception so queues often formed. It feels as though the hotel is a bit short on staff and it could do with a manager being present to check on things. The restaurant staff work incredibly hard but the food was disappointing, not the standard of other hotels of this rating, and it is not kept warm at all by the serving dishes. This needs addressing. I ended up hovering in wait for fresh trays to be brought out in order to get food whilst it was hot. But if reception and the food were improved this would be one of the best hotels in Playa Blanca due to its location, pool, rooms etc. The entertainment was very good. Some better than others but we were well entertained every night. Especial mention to Circus du monde who were amazing. Last, but not least, Daniel and the animation team were great. They encourage but don't pester which meant we enjoyed joining in. There are gentle games for us oldies and more strenuous ones for younger people. There's yoga, pilates and aquagym. You can also hire kayaks from the hotel and you are right on the beach to take them out. This is a good hotel but with some easy tweaking it would be great.
