Just back from one week stay, very impressed with standard of food and drink on offer, main dining area could do with being freshened up. Standard of room is ok, but mattress was terrible like a hard pillow with a groove in middle and staff were helpful. Location is right on the beach, 2.5k from Marina rubicon which is small tastefully developed area, but very quiet at night prob because it was February and a further 2.5k to playa blanca which is a standard resort strip with English breakfasts etc if that's your thing. The walk to playa blanca a lovely costal path. The whole area has alot of grey haired people kicking about, the hotel is no different, if you want somewhere quiet to chill out for a week, you could do worse. Of the bars in hotel, terrace of d canary bar, chill out bar and pool bar are all decent the others nothing to write about, the green bar is grey central. Sauna n steam are great, gym is very basic. We were a couple in our thirties.

Room Tip: Theres a nice supermarket at the bottom of hill out the front door of hotel, with great deli meats n...

Stayed there early February 2013. All the staff very helpful and attentive and couldnt do enough for us. Good variety of food and drink in all inclusive package. Beds comfortable in rooms and stunning sea view from balcony. Upgraded to Royal Elite and glad we did, breakfast is extra special in seperate area, bottled water procided in room, exec lounge with fine selection of drinks, newspapers and good free internet access. Worth every penny and very relaxing and enjoyable, good location to, can easily walk to the best beaches on the island. Will we be going back, definately.

Room Tip: Consider dieting before going as it is tempting to eat and drink far too much with the selection on...

This hotel is fab, with it been quite far out of the centre it does live up to its stars, it is a very big hotel but they make you feel welcome and individual service, the last time i went i was 17 but my parents still go back themselfs. the food is really nice (i am a very fussy eater!) and the entertainment! also this hotel is about a ten minute walk from a secluded cove on the side of the island and its almost like been in a tropical destination!!

Room Tip: pool view!

Just returned from the Sandos Papagayo after a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable 2 weeks, the room was spacious with a large bed, sofa and plenty of waredrobe space, the room was clean with a daily maid service, my wife and I were in room b314 with a nice balcony and views out towards Fuerteventura, we woke up each morning to the sound of waves lapping onto the shore, the food was excellant so much choice and you could eat 24 hours a day if you wished, we tried the Mexican and the Chinese which you had to book in advance,and like the main resturant where again excellant, the waiting staff were kept on top by clearing the tables as soon as they became vacant each time replacing the table cloth, if you finished with a plate they would remove it within no time, the same in the bar areas the staff again were friendly and polite, we loved the balcony a real sun trap with comfortable seats to relax in, I dont swim but there were five pools and no shortage of loungers, and when we arrived on our first day we were given beach towels to lay on the loungers, and you just changed them at the gym as required, i could go on forever about the Hotel, as we could not find fault with anything, so much so today we have booked up to return there the same two weeks next year. Cant wait till next year when we return wth our Daughter and the two Grand children, Well done to all the staff, and Thank you.

Room Tip: When we booked we requested a quiet room and after reading the reviews we also requested a room in b...

We were very impressed with this hotel.Everything was beautifully clean and the food was of a very high quality,always lots of choice and meat often cooked while you wait.We tried the Mexican and Oriental restaurants but felt they were not as good as the buffet.
We e.mailed ahead to ask for a sea view high up.We were put in E.Block on level 11, views from balcony were spectacular and it was very peaceful there
Only gripe is that there are some noisy games that spoil the peace in the otherwise tranquil atrium.
Would definitely recommend !

Stayed September 2011 and did it a rave review, but direct to hotel. Went back in March 2012 and just a tad disappointed, food not just as good, problem with toilet (wouldn,t flush) and took three visits to reception to get a result (just glad we weren't poorly!!) Hair dryer flex fired, reported it and is was sorted immediately. However on balance we have booked again for September 2013 on the Royal Elite package. On reading other reviews, yes rooms might be dated but hey spotlessly clean. Pleasant staff, wonderful swimming pools, sunbeds in abundance. Just hope the food is up to scratch this time.

It was everything that met our requirement! My husband and I took our 1 year old and 2 year old. The holiday was for my daughters 1st Birthday (Ruby) and we all had a smashing time.
Alot of selection for food - caters for all ages including babies.
Pool was a little cold but expected at this time of year.
Entertainment could be improved a little so more people can participate.
Rooms were always clean to a very good standard.
Hotel over all was clean and staff were friendly. We made lots of good friends whilst on holiday who we have kept in touch with. I would recommend this hotel to anyone ESP if u want hot/warm weather in the winter period.
