Mother Nature gets the credit

Feb 4th, 2020

Papagayo has good and bad aspects to it. The natural environment is BEAUTIFUL; the rooms are in smaller buildings situated at various spots on a decline (slight cliff) down to the water. Amazing flowers and shrubbery. This resort caters to Europeans, as there was no electrical outlet for American appliances in the room and we did not have a converter; needed to borrow from front desk. They provide two slim towels and no washcloths-- as is typical in European hotels (how do you get clean w/o a washcloth?) I did not observe any other Americans (an aspect I loved) & most people spoke Dutch. We declined housekeeping but asked for new towels and coffee; these never arrived. Each room has a large, nice deck or balcony, However the deck chairs are very uncomfortable. The room was large, modern and attractive except the bathroom reminded me of a locker room. It is painted concrete walls and floors with no decoration. Again, HIGH SCHOOL LOCKER ROOM. Not enjoyable to take a shower or get ready. There is a very small beach here, in like an inlet, and you have to pay for a chair or chaise. Basically, there's just no beach here. The swimming pools are very nice and there's drink and food service at pools. The restaurants on site were pretty bad. We did not have a good meal in Curacao. I would definitely stay here again, because the grounds are so nice and the room was clean w/ nice view, but I do not think the $300 per nite was worth it. So I'd stay, if I got a better $deal$.

Nicely located resort with good facilities

Jan 21st, 2020

Papagayo resort is nicely located at the Janthiel area. Use of the beach area with free beach beds is included. Shady spots are however limited. The villas are nicely equipped with large verandas. The kitchen items do need some improvement. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

GREAT!!

Jan 13th, 2020

Papagayo is perfect!! We had the sea-view bungalow. It was really nice waking up looking at the sea every morning. Everyday cleaning service, clean towels, beach towels. Welcome package when you arrive. Which was great, since we arrived late in the evening. So the fridge was filled with all we needed, also for breakfast. Only thing what was really annoying, the mosquitoes. The bungalow is fully open, so they fly in really easy. We were all covered with mosquito bites. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Lovely Villa Ocean View

Nov 15th, 2019

The Villa was sooo nice, big, close to the exit, reception, great view. They placed a mosquito net for the bedroom, which was needed. I have to go back over there. All of the people of the Resort were professional, nice, and helpful especially during the power failure! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
