relaxing in paradise

Would recommend Mon, Dec 22, 2008
For our family the only obvious deficiency of the Paradisus Playa Conchal, an all-inclusive, is the overall dining quality. During our six night stay we ate at four different sit-down dinner restaurants. There was only one (Gabi Club) to which we made a point of visiting more than once, and we actually dined at Gabi three times. The 19th Hole was a good lunch choice. The rooms and service were generally great, although there were occasional slip-ups -- dinner reservations were wrong a few times, and towels were either supplied in over-abundance or were in short supply. Staff was consistently friendly, and their interest in providing great service always seemed genuine. Except that travel to and from the hotel from our home near Chicago was effectively a day-long investment on both ends, we'd say that the location was wonderful. The hotel property is beautiful, and with some effort the parks and countryside of Costa Rica are accessible. We'd definitely consider regular return visits.

Attractions

We rented a car at the hotel for a day trip to Monteverde National Park. The park is spectacular, but the Costa Rican roads make the drive an adventure. The drive is close to four hours each way, and a significant portion of the trip is conducted at necessarily low speeds over boulder-strewn roads through the mountains.

Perfect Honeymoon!

Would recommend Sat, Dec 20, 2008
Both my wife and I agree that this hotel was perfect for a honeymoon get away. We would definitely recommend getting the Royal Service up grade which gets you access to the adults only pool, a concierge and the butler service. The Butlers were amazing, they even prepared a special night for us without us knowing. One night when we returned from dinner, our room had been filled with candles and flower peddles and a warm bubble bath with chocolate covered strawberries and champagne were waiting. It was great. I highly recommend going if you are looking to get away, relax and enjoy the company of someone you love.

The most wonderful staff....

Would recommend Tue, Dec 9, 2008
We have stayed at many nice resorts and found that the Playa Conchql's staff to be the friendliest we have every had the pleasure of meeting. The wait staff was gracious, competent and friendly. The cleaning people were efficient, polite and friendly. The bartenders were great too. The activities staff was by far the nicest young people. This very polite, sweet young staff made our visit very comfortable. The hotel itself is beautiful, the grounds are kept perfect, the golf course was beautiful, the food delicious and the service impeccable. We would go back in a heartbeat.

Attractions

The hotel is a bit remote. There are taxis to the towns and the hotel offers sunset cruises and other great extras.

Great Overall Resort

Would recommend Sun, Dec 7, 2008
Ok, Loved the resort, loved the amenities, and I got my value of the all inclusive by dining and drinking. A lot. The resort is a little frayed around the edges, upkeep seems to to be a little haphazard. I had an exposed wire on a light in my room and no safe. The food was very good. The bartenders were great, especially at the pool bar. If you like more than a cup of coffee, I suggest you grab a pot, since refills were spotty at best at all of the buffets. Beautiful golf course, plenty of wildlife. In my personal opinion, the shows that were put on could be better, but you can't have it all. The guys serving breakfast may be your bartender at lunch, your server at night, then at the disco dressed as a carnivale character... They definitely need more females on the restaurant/ bar staffs. But that is my opnion as well.

Service was great. Rooms ...

Would recommend Sat, Dec 6, 2008
Service was great. Rooms were very spacious and clean. Food was great. The beach was nice, except it is blocked off from the resort because it is public beach with lots of vendors. Royal Service upgrade did not seem worth it to us. Very nice place to visit! If it was newer, I would give it a 5. I give it a 4 1/2.

Worth a visit

Would recommend Tue, Dec 2, 2008
This was our first trip to Costa Rica and the Paradisus Playal Conchal and overall we were very happy with our visit. The following is our list of the hotel's highs and lows: Highs 1. Room - very comfortable bed, cleaners did an outstanding job of keeping the room clean, good location between the pool and lobby. 2. Restaurants - our favourites were the Italian and the Asian, and in particular the banana dessert at the Asian. 3. Staff - very friendly and courteous, majority spoke very good English. 4. Excursions - the hotel provides some good excursions. We went to the Arenal volcano and a visit to some hot springs. Although we did not see the top of the volcano, we thought this trip was worth the money. Lows 1. Pool - this was the biggest disappointment for us. The hotel has 3 pools, one of which can be used by all hotel guests. This pool looks great, but a) gets crowded, b) has too many trees so you are continually moving to stay in (or out of) the sun and c) is difficult to find a sun lounger that is facing the pool (the hotel put in an elaborate system of small bushes in order to cram in as many sun loungers as possible). The other two pools are much nicer (one of which is adults only), but you have to upgrade to Royal Service in order to use them. In hindsight, if you are pool people (like we are), it is probably worth the upgrade for this feature alone. 2. Restaurants - there are basically 7 restaurants that you can dine at in the evenings, although 1 of these is for royal service only. Each day you have to reserve a table at the restaurant of your choice (except the buffet, which is walk in). The phone lines opened at 8am, and we called everyday before 8:30am, but it was virtually impossible to reserve a table between 7pm and 8:30pm. This appeared to be another perk of the royal service that they could reserve their choice of restaurant in advance of the rest of us. 3. Golf course - the hotel has a beautiful golf course.

Nightlife hint

The hotel has several attractions in the evening: 1. Outside bar by the pond (live music some nights). 2. Shows - different show each night of the week (not for us, but did have a bar...) 3. Disco 4. Casino

wonderful experience!!

Would recommend Tue, Nov 4, 2008
The Paradisus Playa Conchal was a beautiful resort. It was a wonderfully relaxing experience and the service there was outstanding. The resort is located almost on the beach and so close to many activities availible in Costa Rica. I would highly reccomend this resort to friends.

Attractions

The horseback riding was our favorite activity and it was the most inexpensive of the outside activities.

Wonderful Honeymoon

Would recommend Mon, Oct 20, 2008
I really enjoyed my stay at the Paradisus Playa Conchal. I stayed at the resort for 4 nights as part of my honeymoon and thought the accommodations were excellent. The resort is beautiful, with a huge tropical pool, well maintained golf course, and beach front location. There are many bar and dining options as well. It was the perfect relaxing resort for our honeymoon.
