We visited this hotel as a romantic get away and it was simply amazing. A bit hard to get to - but once you're there ....its heaven! A small plane brought us into the coast - it looked like the movie "avatar " - a blanket of lime green ....unreal! The hotel staff was amazing -"pudda vida " LOL! We...

Rooms were dated. Showers were not cleaned well. My friends I was travelling with had items stolen from them, I'm assuming from the house keepers. When resorted to the front desk nothing was further done about it. The staff wasn't overly nice. Some were very rude. As well as the food was awful. I wouldn't recommend this resort to anyone.

we tried to inquire about prices end of oct. this year, called directly and were told they have close for reno's, possibly why everything was terrible.. we went there twice, both times, had great time.. but prices keep going up, getting too expensive..

This place has lots to offer, we had a large room it was clean, a little dated but it was a great location. There were monkeys there everyday which you could feed and visit. The food was simple and lacked variety for an all inclusive. However the bar tenders were great and The staff at the main desk were awesome....

This was the first time my wife and I had stayed in Central America, although we travel extensively. We stayed at two resorts during our stay, the Occidental Grand Papapagayo and this one the Allegro. What a difference. The Grand Papagayo was excellent. However I can honestly say that the Allegro was probably one of the worst resorts I have...

The staff here was mostly very nice. The food was really bad, the worst I have ever had at an all inclusive. First of all, they are using the name Occidental Papagayo and there is another resort by that name. We reviewed that location and we went there first. It is very very confusing. There was a world of difference...

I have traveled to many All-Inclusives in both Mexico and the Caribbean and I can honestly say this was the worst, The food was horrible, was the same every day, and once food ran out it was not replenished so you had to get there early or eat whatever was left. The restaurants were not open every night, on our...

I travel often, I understand that some hotels are not the best, but this is by far the worst hotel experience I have ever had. The room was filthy, the floor was dirty, the shower had stains on the tiles, the toilet was dirty, the towels are yellowed they are so old, the pool towels are ripped and old. The...

I stayed here with a friend as part of a Groupon package that we booked, that seemed too good to be true. We stayed in Arenal for 3 nights prior to arriving at the Allegro Papagayo, and it was AMAZING. Just like everyone has mentioned in previous reviews, this place is pretty down, a little dirty, and the food is...

Have you been longing for the "this is not what I paid for" feeling? Now you can experience it all over again! Just book this hotel and have your wish granted.
