    "Nice Relaxing Hotel"
    This was the first time my husband and I have ever gone out of the country, I am glad we chose the Hilton Papagayo. It was such a nice place to stay, very relaxing and a lot of activities. I have nothing bad to say about the hotel itself, the rooms, utilities, restaurants, pools and outdoor facilities as everything was very nice and pleasant. However, I was a little disappointed with the first contact we made with the hotel staff.....the package we purchased through Expedia was all paid in full, unfortunately, when we arrived to check in, we were told that there were two rooms reserved (which clearly had to be Expedia's mistake). The other reservation was never paid for so there had to be some miscommunication between Expedia and Hilton. The hotel manager was insisting on having us pay for at least one night as a "cancellation fee" - which was not our mistake...ugh so we stood there explaining and arguing for at least 20 minutes, when finally he made the decision to say that he was going to call Expedia himself and figure it out. Shouldn't that have been the first thing he said and done the very beginning? Not happy how he treated us. Aside from the check in craze...the staff was great, shuttle guys were so nice and friendly. We would definitely go there again.

    Grounds are amazing. Food very good, yoga class very good. Front desk does not have much info about local tours, surf schools so check Trip Advisor or other sites before you go. Rooms are lovely, we had a private terrace with outdoor shower.

    "Lovely hotel in centre of San Jose, helpful staff"
    This hotel is right in the centre of San Jose so it's really easy to get around to see all the sights in downtown. The hotel itself is very nice and the breakfast that's included in the room rate is amazing: fruits, yoghurts, juice, cheeses, hams, pastries, waffles, hot food, and they can make pancakes and omlettes fresh to order. The staff are helpful and friendly. We stayed here on 2 separate occasions and the second time we were randomly upgraded to a suite! Only downside to the rooms is that there is no fridge, but no big deal. Generally San Jose is not the safest place at night but the location of the hotel meant that there are restaurants and fast food places right next door so you don't have to go far at night. After 9pm to 10pm you should get a taxi if you are going further out.

    "Very close to airport with American style amentity"
    Nice hotel for with free shuttle leaving every half hr for airport. Walmart next door for items you might need, several restaurants in front of hotel. Very convenient access to Europcar rentals. Pool is very small and has no shallow end, 4 ft depth which is nice because it keeps the ankle biters and diaper clad kids out of the pool. Rates in area can be half of this hotel but it's a nice hotel, even by American standards and it's very convenient to airport, other places may say they are close but with the mazes of San Jose anything over 3 miles could mean 20-30 minute drive. Most flights leaving San Jose leave very early so being close is worth the money.

    "Amazing but expensive food"
    It was great. We ate in the A La Carte restaurant and the food was amazing but pricey. The people who worked there, were very nice and helpful. The spa is outstanding. And if you stay there for 1 night, you get a two day admission to the spa. Which is $60 per person per day.

    "Truly a paradise"
    This hotel far exceeded my expectations. The room was magnificent. A giant framed bed. Every night towels formed in a different shape decorating the bed. The bathroom had two showeres. One with a rainfall head and one spectacular rock shower with the water coming out like a waterfall. Finally, a private outdoor jacuzzi with view of the Arenal volcano. The dining facility was open air, beautiful and no bugs. The staff were friendly and helpful in selecting the best hot springs, zip line and rappelling adventures.

    "Great location, a bit touristy, fun place."
    Great location near volcano, hanging bridges. You can't really see the volcano because of the clouds, but it's still a great view. Wonderful gardens throughout, actually a bit too perfect for my tastes. Place is designed for American tastes. Most guests enjoyed the 2 for 4 dollars beer specials from 4 - 6. The "spring" is relatively authentic and is quite nice. The free breakfast is great. If you are one of those people that complain, shame on you. Probably 40 items to choose from. Rico's PIzzeria is a nice nearby restaurant that combines local/American taste sensibilities. The rooms are fine. Everything is somewhat eco friendly which is nice. A great bargain that is pretty nicely designed throughout. Workers are pleasant and don't seem to mind tourists so much. Place is great for families/newlyweds, pretty much anyone. If you're worried about crime here, don't. Great price for a really nice stay. Kids loved it.
