Incredible Resort, Staff

Trojanforlife (Houston, Texas) on Jun 27, 2022

We had our wedding at Andaz Papagayo and it was an incredible experience for all of our guests. The staff went out of their way to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable, the food and drinks were amazing, the facilities were well-kept and everyone had an amazing time. We can't thank the staff enough for making our dream wedding come to life and taking such good care of our friends and family.

Beautiful and peaceful property

D5673WDjohnc on Jun 23, 2022

Recently returned from Costa Rica and one of the properties we stayed at was here. Andaz Papagayo is a quiet and immaculate property tucked into an exclusive gated off area of Costa Rica. While some may view this as a positive, it feels unnecessary, given the rather remote location. Be warned that there isn't really much of a beach on the resort property itself, though you can take a short (and complimentary) shuttle ride to a better one. They do have a pretty good assortment of equipment to get out on the water, including kayaks and paddleboards. We did the kayaking and I would recommend it, as the bay is very protected and you can't get a much better environment to kayak in the ocean than here. Andaz has fantastic pools. They have a separate pool for kids and two more for adult use, partially shaded by beautiful tropical trees. We also had zero issues securing chairs and shade poolside, in contrast to say - Secrets, where those were snagged by 9am and squatted on for the entire day. The vibe of Andaz is completely different from Secrets though. Andaz is the peaceful and upscale place to relax by the pool. Secrets is the pool party with unlimited drinks. The food was expensive (by Costa Rica standards) but pretty good. The drinks, particularly of the frozen variety, were excellent, but at $15+ a glass, they better be. That's no cheaper than back home. The room was great. It exceeded expectations all-around. There was a huge private balcony with furniture, and the shower was enormous. Room layout was nice, keeping the sleeping area partitioned from the bathroom and entrance area. Despite advertising, all rooms seem to face the water. I think the ones marked as water view may be simply closer to the water's edge. We were in the second row (there are only two rows of buildings) and could see the water quite well from our windows. Andaz is so quiet that it was a little boring. There isn't much to do there aside from hanging out at the pool or beach, and eating. Fortunately, I spoke with a friend who had been to Costa Rica twice in recent years and she recommended a great local guide she used. We also signed up with him while at Andaz and elsewhere in the country. I would like to give him a mention as well, since he was the cornerstone of our successful trip. The guide's name is Herson Segura and he operates a personal tour guide service (Spanglish Tours). He'll pick you up at the airport, arrange all your tours, drive you around from location to location - whether tour spot or hotel, and answer all your questions. This saves you having to rent a car or worry about insurance, driving, estimating transportation times, tour times, and whether you're booking the best tours or not - after talking with you about what tours you might be interested in, also considering the weather, time of year, and so on - factors that someone flying in for a few days or a couple weeks just isn't going to know. He's fully bilingual and a local, so he knows all that, and handles it for you. You pay him one fee, and all the rest is included. This allows you to maximize your time while on vacation and minimizes the amount you have to worry about. I found his rates to be very reasonable and would like to recommend him whether you're visting Andaz or anywhere else in the vicinity. We arranged everything with him over Instagram (IG: @hersonSegura) where you can see his photos and info. He's also reachable on WhatsApp at +506 8990 8115. Very personable, highly recommended. In our case, Andaz was the third of four properties we stayed at (not counting the airport hotel since we got in late). We stayed there for three nights and departed directly from the beach via boat. Herson set up a fishing excursion for us that also served as the transportation between Andaz and Secrets Resort - our final stop. While fishing, I caught a 100 pound roosterfish and we had a great time just being out on the water too. I would recommend Andaz to anyone who wants a peaceful retreat away from everything. It's definitely that. I think our stay of 3 nights there was perfect. I would encourage anyone visiting Costa Rica to stay in several places just to see more of the country. It's not a big country but there is a lot of things to see.
