    The swimming pools, the wide variety of food and some bars had premium whiskey as standard.

    My room needed re-furbished as it was tired and outdated!

  • 8.2

    We like the location of Sandos Papagayo, the wonderful Sea View and Playa Blanca. This was our second time at this hotel.

    The lunch bags are a bit poor, could be more variable.

  • 10.0

    It is a beautiful location, staff are friendly, the hotel is clean & the facilities are excellent. We particularly liked the new edition of the "Chill Out Terrace" & Mexican restaurant.

    The Chinese Restaurant has a limited menu & virtually nothing for vegetarians.

    Very good

    good facilities especially for kids

    pool tables and other machines seemed to be out of order regularly but not marked out of order and still swallowed up our money. staff seemed to be in different to the problem, also there was a fantastic beach to the right of the hotel at the back just a 10 minute walk away, but we only found it on the last day. I think you need to have it in your info leaflet as i think it is a big plus for the Hotel. The cleaners did not clean the floor in our room either and as a family who like the beach more than the pool we obviously brought sand back with us which was not cleaned off the floor for the week and nearly caused a few accidents with the kids slipping on it.

    Very good hotel, stayed for 9 nights in June this year, family loved it, food great, swimming pools superb, staff great, location near to playa blance and papagayo beaches first class, all round excellent holiday and great value for money

    Not really much to fault this hotel, maybe only that all inclusive beer a bit watered down and house wine not so great, also juices from machines not so good, but plenty of other drinks to keep you going

  • 8.8

    Have been twice before, so going again is a good reccommendation. Food was as fantastic as always, and the staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. The whole place is kept spic and span and the room is always very clean.

    Not sure about the new Royal Elite service, I was not offered it or given any details, and it does create an air of segregation. Not too happy with the new mattresses, but you do get used to them. They are noisy and quite hard.

    The food and waiting staff were excellent.

    This is not a hotel for the mature, The day time reception staff were so unhelpful. There was no porter available for help with the luggage. The beds the hardest we have ever slept in. The block we stayed in g when sitting on the balcony there was a view of the brick wall. The advertised dress code was not adhered to ie no shorts/vests at dinner. No tea coffee making facilities in the room. This is not a four star hotel.

    Very good

    Nice location family friendly hotel. Staff generally are friendly. Rooms are clean. Gym, pool and sauna are of reasonable quality. Food in the main restaurant is satisfactory. Good choice for non vegetarians. The management are proactive and keen on listening to customers and I made them aware of our difficulties..

    My wife is a vegetarian and she struggled to find much choice. The salads were not labelled clearly and on occasions she ended up eating meat by mistake. Chinese restaurant food quality is poor and once again food labelling is poor.

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. 5 stars go to the animation team that managed the mini club! My daughter had a great time! The receptionists were also a great help. The rooms were grouped into blocks (buildings). We stayed at Block g and block C. We preferred block c, as it was with a sea view. There was a very good selection of food: 4 restaurants. We enjoyed the international restaurant, as it offered a very good selection of food. What struck us was the design of the restaurant. It was well thought of, as waiters/waitresses and staff dealing with the food do not get in the way of guests. Plates were removed efficiently too. We were also very close to the Papagayo beaches. It is strategically well-situated!

    Very good situation concerning the wonderfull papagayo playa. Very well equiped hotel resort

    Different quality of bed depending of the room (random). Food and cooking acceptable but not wonderfull.

    Good choice of food , lovely room with nice view

  • 10.0

    Facilities were excellent. The all-inclusive option was great value for money. The location was quiet but it was a pleasant walk to Playa Blanca and there were some lovely beaches nearby.

    It was a very big hotel and could get extremely busy at mealtimes.
