This hotel has an amazing staff that goes above and beyond to make you feel special. We arrived and Erica, Vincent and Ignacio made sure we were taken care of. We were given a very tasty drink while we waited for our room.
I especially liked this hotel because it's not like your average hotel. The rooms were in different buildings throughout the property. It was nice to walk everywhere. If you didn't want to walk you could call for a golf cart to pick you up.
Since we went around Mother's Day my husband surprised me with a spa massage. The Onda Spa was beautiful and the massage was by far one of the best ones I've had. The spa staff was amazing!
The hotel itself is perched on a hill with all kinds of wildlife around the property. We saw some monkeys and iguanas and loved waking up to the birds chirping.
The pool was great...since it was during low season, I almost had the pool to myself.
The restaurant food was pretty good...they had typical "American" food which was what we usually order. The best dish I had was the petite filet! Have a nice meal and enjoy the beautiful view of the marina and water.
On one of the last days we went zip-lining in the Monteverde Cloud Forest. It was amazing! Our adventure was booked right through the hotel.
If you want a personal experience at a beautiful hotel I would highly recommend the Andaz Papagayo. Thanks again for a wonderful stay! We have already referred a few friends to make the trip! You guys were amazing! :-)
