My family of 5 - 21,20 and15 year old children, husband and I, spent 2 days here in July. Having read lots of Trip Advisor views I was prepared for just about anything.

We arrived, and were treated terribly. The man that worked the desk to help us, called our room 4 times trying to take our 19 year old friend out. We told him to not call anymore and we received 2 more hang up calls. We had booked a cab to take her to the airport at 4:30 in the morning,... More

We just returned from a week long stay at the Allegro Papagayo. We had a wonderful time there. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They work so hard and are there very long hours! The pool is beautiful and the view from building five was amazing. The food was great. Yes, there are some... More

We had a great time during our stay at Allegro Papagayo. Couple of tips... every morning there is an omelette bar. If you are particular about cholesterol, then ask for an egg white omelette. Those who get "regular" omelettes beware... the extra yolks from the egg white omelettes are dumped back into the regular omelette mixture! Take all you want... More

We stayed here for two weeks in July 2007, myself, my three teenage children and two friends.

We just got back from a week at the Allegro Papagayo (AP) and our only complaint is that we did not stay longer. For a 3-star facility, everything was top-notch. We have traveled all over the Caribbean and the AP is as good as any 3-star hotel. The hotel is built on the side of a hill and the walk... More

We stayed at the resort July 8-14. Like others we went wondering given all the reviews. We had a great time.
