Beautiful grounds and rooms, very quiet hotel when we were there its right on the beach but the water is not very clear. There is another beach a few minute walk up the street that is very clear and blue. The included breakfast was very good and there is a nice restaurant but we felt it was a little expensive and didn't have many choices. There is a restaurant that is a short walk up the beach also Playa Hermosa is a 5 minute drive away and has restaurants on the beach, highly recommend eating at La Casita Del Marisco, it was the beast meal we had all week. The pool is beautiful and there are chairs set up close to the beach with a lovely view. There is also a nice area with hammocks and fire pits. A very nice hotel that is close to several towns and the airport, I would stay here again if I return

We could not have been happier staying here. Our room was clean, the pool was beautiful, the food in the restaurant was delicious, but the best part was the wonderful staff, especially Roberto in the restaurant/bar and Albero at the reception desk…they went above and beyond!

Lovely resort right on the water. The staff were very helpful and super friendly. We saw monkeys, iguanas, and lots of different birds. They had a very nice pool area. The food was good and so was the service. My only complaint is it was not close in so one had to take a taxi, which was very expensive.

This hotel is smaller, but the key attraction is how quaint it is. The relaxed vibes and helpful staff made this a trip to remember. We stayed busy doing tours around Costa Rica and this was our base camp. We were well fed every morning and had the pool to lounge in. The wind coming off the beach made for gorgeous morning coffee. This place is a hidden gem! I can’t wait to come back. Stay if you want romantic and private vacation vibes!

I'm still blown away by my experience at Papagayo Golden Palms. From the moment we arrived to the time we left, we had a 5 star experience. The service is beyond excellent. Elizabeth, Andrea, Alan and the entire staff went out of their way to make sure that all of our needs were met. The food was mostly delicious - I've never had such great ceviche in my life! The rooms were spacious, clean and bright. The grounds are simply magnificent. Papagayo Golden Palms is a gem of a resort. Run, don't walk there!

We flew into Costa Rica late at night and booked this hotel for the first night of our honeymoon! Luna made our room so special and made us feel so welcomed! The experience was so relaxing and beautiful. Spent the morning at the ocean and at the beautiful shaded pool. I have celiac disease so I am always concerned about eating but they were extremely accommodating and the food was so fresh and healthy. Highly recommend this stay!

This hotel is a gem! We went there in November 2023 and it exceeded all our expectations. The hotel is not the newest but is very well maintained and clean. The vegetation on the property is so lush and gorgeous, we could tell they take very good care of it. What we loved the most about this hotel is the team of people that worked there. They are always available to help, greet you with a genuine smile and treat you like family. Especially, Esther, Luna and Milagro are an all-star! These people make the soul of this hotel! We would love to come back the next time we are in Costa Rica! Stephanie, Amer (and Elias)
