THe Mirador Papagayo
Ranked #16 of 37 Hotels in Playa Blanca
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 1, 2014

My husband and I have just returned from 9 days in the Iberostar Papagayo . It was our first time and we found the rooms very clean, of genouros size with comfortable beds. The sea view was certainly worth the extra. The staff was very friendly and the food, well you could not wish for more, an amazing variety and always fresh.
Wonderful for walking and yet not very far to Restaurants, shops or even a round of golf. Hotel provides shuttle service to nearest sandy beach and the local bus stop is only 5 min. up the road from the hotel, which takes you into Playa Blanca or beyond.

we have just returned, from our 3rd holiday at the Iberostar. staff are great very helpful. The rooms are clean and a generous size. we have stayed in the apartments before and this time we stayed in the hotel on the 3rd floor, the restaurant was only a short walk for our room. The food was again very good, with plenty of choice .if you want to go to the beach the hotel runs a bus service that drops you there and they have set times to pick you up, but if you don't want the beach they have plenty beds around the pool.

Room Tip: Higher floors have the best views

The best thing about this hotel is the friendly staff. They always make time to chat.
We stayed in apartment number 7 which is in the second half of the hotel. It seems not everyone knew about this half as the pool area was very quiet whereas the main pool was packed everyday!
The only thing stopping this reive from being 5 star is location. I personally loved being here but can imagine others find it too quiet and too far away from any main town or attraction.
We stayed as B&B only so can only comment on breakfast food wise. There was a big selection but of very cheap, over cooked food. This didn't bother us as we went out for lunch/dinner and enjoyed tapas every night :)
If you stay here bring some sensible walking shoes as the coastal walk is absolutely beautiful!
If you like a drink I would recommend all inclusive as to pay for drinks at the bar like we did was very expensive.
Towels for the pool are provided but at a deposit of 10 euros, we took our own at the risk of loosing our deposit.
The rooms are very large but the furniture is dated, didn't bother us though. There is a tv which we didn't use and a hob and microwave which was easy to use.
There's a convenient dinomart supermarket just a minute or two walk up the road with reasonable prices. We got some lunch and drinks here.

We stayed at this hotel over the Easter period on a half board basis and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room overlooked the pool and was generous in size. The beds were comfortable and the sheets were changed twice during the week. The choice in the restaurant was wide and the food was very good. The staff were friendly and very helpful.
The location is ideal for walking onto the Papagayo nature reserve and the wonderful beaches. walk the other way and you have the Marina Rubicon and then Playa Blanca and the beaches there,
All in all I will certainly go back to this hotel again.

A week at the Papagayo Iberostar for the Easter week has been a delight. We arrived to a pleasant reception and equally pleasant staff. As 2 couples we had 2 rooms both on the 3rd floor which is conveniently the same floor as the restaurant and the swimming pool. Both rooms were clean, large enough to move around in and had plenty of storage space. We opted for a room safe which is activated with a small key from reception at a small fee. We had paid as part of the holiday half board but after our first meal we decided to upgrade to all inclusive. The buffet breakfast lunch and dinner were excellent, there was plenty of variety and the 'headline' items changed daily and were supported by 'stock' items, salads, fries etc. At 25 euro per head per day we thought it good value especially as you had all inclusive drinks at the bar as well as the lunch.
The pool area is nicely laid out and has plenty of space and a lot of sun beds. Shade is also well provided for with nice large fixed parasols and then more traditional umbrella style parasols which are moveable.
The hotel laid on numerous activities throughout the day from aqua fit, darts, table tennis, poker night and caberet evenings, all in all a relaxing break.

I have still given this review an excellent rating but the only negative was room 302 air con this was clearly not working, our room temp ranged from 25 to 27 degrees, to warm, good job we didn't spend too much time in the room. We mentioned it reception 3/4 times before a room fan arrived. A minor issue which didn't spoil our stay.

All waiting staff and bar staff were excellent a cheerful bunch who made the stay pleasurable.

The hotel is not bad, that would be unfair. But it's not great either. You can tell that many things lack maintenance. The food quality is budget imo. If you are all inclusive, all drinks are low quality. The beds are terrible and it's very far of the village. No beach nearby,
