6/10 Good

A very mixed experience at this hotel -- pleasant location on Jan Thiel beach, very good staff, with some nice amenities like a private beach and pool, porches, etc. However, they made some weird choices in the design. European-only power outlets, terrible bathroom sink lighting, lots of unusable cabinet space, and most notably, the path to the private beach goes directly next to a very smelly sewage treatment facility! The units closest to the beach have less-usable porches as a result. Had an enjoyable stay despite this, but there are probably better options at this price point.

I loved that it is right on the beach, I loved the large balcony, I did not like the partition between the two rooms on the balcony did not provide enough privacy

Honeymoon Success
Loved the hotel. Only complaints: 1) “King Bed” is actually two twins out together. Wasn’t super comfortable, but was okay. 2) there was a subtle smell in our room and a smell on the way to the pool. Otherwise: - Beautiful landscaping - Friendly and helpful front desk - Great shower - Loved the salt water pool - Bar employees were great - Beach Club food was good

10/10 Exceptional

Papagayo was beautifully decorated and landscaped, had spotless rooms and common areas and was in a great location. Our room was huge and had a nice patio. The price was very reasonable, especially considering nightly prices in other coastal areas. We loved our stay.
