They were fine at night. The main room had no AC and no mosquito netting to keep bus and birds out (on set tried to build a nest in our ceiling...

First, the good: Papagayo Beach Resort's location is fantastic. We rented a car (and got a GPS) and easily traveled around the island. The views are beautiful and the resort looks great.

We stayed 10 nights at two different bungalows in the resort: few days with "garden view" and the rest with "sea" view. The bungalows were exact copies of each other with high ceilings and in good condition. I loved sitting on the porch on comfy sofa reading and looking at the sea. The location of the bungalow really makes a...
