    What a great week we had! The food was phenomenal, atmosphere was very relaxed and enjoyable. We kayaked and snorkeled at the resort with Marlon- I highly suggest that. The wildlife was plentiful, raccoons are everywhere. Gloria is one and she has a couple babies, there are several skunks around so be careful. Neither usually are a big bother. We made several great friends from different areas of the states, and the staff at the resort was one of a kind. Javier at the reception desk is by fair their greatest asset. He made sure we were entertained and the conversations with him were like talking to your best friend. He made out entire trip enjoyable. Bryan at the bar, hands down the best bar tender at the resort. Again, felt like enjoying the company of a lifelong friend. The resort did not disappoint really. Some hiccups but that is expected really. Hot water in the shower works best if you put the handle in the middle- otherwise it’s a cold shower. There are a lot of stairs so be prepared for that. 75 steps down to the pool from the clubhouse. Getting transportation to nearby beaches was a little tricky as their taxi service ends around 4pm. Private transportation is your best bet. Bring your own sunscreen (29.95 at the gift shop) bug spray (22.95). Mosquitos can tear you up so be warned!

    Excellent

    Overall this was a great resort. I would stay here again. It is a bit out of the way, but if you like seclusion, this the place for you. I would highly recommend a rental car. The roads are good/safe. If you have a GPS you can drive any place in Costa Rica. The people here are great. At the Occidental Papagayo - wet pool is very relaxing and the food was very good at both the snack bar and the buffet restaurant. Great time by all!

    good for the money, clean, quite, excellent transportation service inside the resort the only thing i missed bacon for breakfast, could be more fish dishes in the menu minus not to much to do in the evening not entertainment.
