Where do we start...beds are not queens and are extremely hard, room is maybe 200 sq ft. The grounds are very nice, rooms leave a lot to desire. Nice views, most staff pretty good, activity booking staff very unfriendly. Food OK, was nice to be able to use the other restaurants when they were open, which was not every night.... More

This was my 2nd trip to the Allegro Papagayo. I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that at least 50% of the staff remembered me and treated me like an old friend. Service with a smile - ALWAYS. The rooms are clean and very well functioning. They were just in the process of painting the exteriors of the resort, but... More

We actually booked our trip back in February. We were hoping that the resort was going to live up to its name. However, we just got back and there’s still work for Allegro to do. So I wouldn’t say their problems have been totally resolved. Our travel agent had booked two rooms for 2 couples and we were relieved that... More

ALL problems that Allegro had are totally gone now and it is again a first rate resort. Okay, at first I was very hesitant to book this resort due to the many negative reviews it received. This hotel had indeed been shut down for 2 weeks, due to bad waste management concerns. However, I called the resort directly and got... More

When we arrived it was very organized. The luggage reached our room we were greeted. The only issues we had were small. Such as we had two double beds. Which was quickly fixed by our travel agent. The safe did now work that we had payed for, but they fixed it quickly. The air conditoner stopped working, but again was... More

Costa Rica is truly a fantastic country to visit—so fantastic that even staying at the Allegro Papagayo did not taint the experience for us. My wife and I stayed here from just after Christmas 2007 through the first week of January 2008 and left with many tales to relate, along with lessons learned.

This resort is closed. My boyfriend and I had reservations there for the 14th-18th of Feb, but when we got there we were informed by other guests (not the management) that the place had been shut down by the Costa Rican government.

Myself, my wife, my best friend, and his wife booked this trip through a travel agent expecting an awesome trip. Indeed it was an awesome trip, but the resort was a different story.
