Home away from home

Wonderful all-inclusive and "extra" activities - Kayaking, Snorkeling, Beach Club... Fresh pineapple with every meal and activity! Yum! Beautiful location and very likeable staff! The entertainment was a little silly. Would have liked more authentic meals more frequently. Off season meal choices limited.

Wonderful Honeymoon!

We really enjoyed the hotel and would recommend it. It was actually a great deal because the food and drink alone would cost as much as the room. The rooms were very nice, the location was great, and there was lots of wildlife to see. The hotel was VERY secluded though (which we liked), but don't expect to walk to anything else. Food was on average okay/good. We enjoyed it, and its what you should expect from a big buffet, but we had better food outside the hotel. They have two restaurants in the hotel which had better food, except the meats weren't cooked through all the way :-( The drinks were pretty delicious, and who can complain about unlimited yummy drinks?

They have some great tours through the hotel. I would recommend the Adrenaline Combo as a very fun tour and a great value for the money. Arenal tour is also worth doing. I would skip the white water rafting. It's more expensive than the Adrenaline Combo and you pretty much do the same thing (and a lot more!) on the AC tour.

Fantastic All Inclusive for the Money

Fantastic vacation. Great views, food, and staff. Highly recommend [...] next to the front desk for booking excursions - especially the "monte verde combo". Hotel isn't near that much but the excursions were a great way to explore the rest of the country.

Awesome Hotel for the Price-Great Staff

I've been to Jamaica, Bahamas, and Hawaii. Jamaica was the best so far BUT I think Costa Rica just passed that up. I recommend zip lining or white water rafting while you are there. I would also recommend to take a spanish dictionary to brush up on some spanish skills. Most of the staff knows a little english as well as the guides on the tours that you go on.)Pretty much everything about the hotel was awesome. I liked that this hotel had a swim up bar and that I never had to get out of the pool for a drink. The only thing that I can recommend is that the food or food selection could be improved at the buffet. The Tex-Mex restraurant was very good. I didn't try the Italian restrarant. Also, the entertainment was better on some days rather than others. But I did like that they included kids activities even though I wasn't traveling with kids.

Allegro Papagayo

I thought the hotel did not care about its guests. While it advertises a black sand beach and a white sand beach, both were awful. The Italian restaurant was terrible. The buffet passable at best, other than breakfeast which was fine. The drinks seemed terribly watered down. The entertainment very poor. Little in the way of activities.

Allegro Papagayo

It was run down, the pictures do it more justice than what it actually looks like. the food was terrible, everyone there that we met didnt like the food. it reminded me of college campus food. also the staff was super friendly but not very informative, there was no welcome packet to tell you how things were run or anything, you had to figure it out yourself or ask other guests.

Allegro Papagayo

Overall it was very relaxing. The clientele were very friendly. People who worked food, bar etc. were very friendly. Would have liked a restaurant that served authentic Costa Rican food. Requested a wake up call and did not receive one. Booked a tour before we left and Allegro would not allow the guide to come to the lobby to pick us up.
