They are located on a hill, have mediocre food and indifferent service (IMO). Construction is also currently going on in some of the rooms according to recent posts. Hilton Papagayo is much nicer and around the same price.

Pros their rooms are pretty deluxe and they offer an ok service. Cons there are many stairs to go to the pool and to the beach, their beach is very small. I would also consider either the Hilton Papagayo or the Riu in that area. Close to Tamarindo there is another one the Barcelo Playa Langosta.

PRO's: It's NOT the Allegro!

Fabulous staff. Excellent service. Incredible views. Excellent food (we all gained weight). Close enough to everything we wanted to see and do.

CON's: Sorry can't think of any - we had the most amazing stay at the OG in November of 2011. No complaints.

It's a 4 star resort. If you're not expecting 10 star service and food you'll be just fine staying there. Go with an open mind and open heart and you'll enjoy every minute of your stay. You'll notice all the reviews that give the OG a bad name are by travellers who have only ever posted one review - hardly something to base your judgement on.
