We stayed at the Allegro to attend a wedding at the nearby Four Seasons, and our hotel couldn't help but suffer by comparison. However, it was all-inclusive (~$184/night with the wedding group rate) and had a large pool. The room was servicable, but not great -- tile floor, slightly stained bedding, and a shower curtain that allowed a lot of...

I do not recommend going to an all inclusive resort hotel in Costa Rica. Costa Rica is known for the beautiful natural settings and being stuck on a resort is not experiencing the culture & country at all. To make matters worse, the hotel itself is pretty shabby. Although the lobby and pool are nice, the rooms definitely need a...

Spent some time reviewing this hotel and found mixed reviews, so I was curious as to how it would turn out. I usually travel higher end hotels. Spent 9 nights. Had more than one room with family members. To my fellow readers, beware of the following: the rooms are terrible, the air conditioning thunders all night ( waking the the...

We just returned from a family holiday at the Allegro Papagayo. There were 11 members of our family in six rooms and everyone had a terrific time. This is not a five star hotel and you are not paying for a five star hotel. The rooms are fairly plain, but clean. The food is excellent and the service the best...

Do not go to this hotel. It is horrible and disgusting. We went on Dec. 26th and we actually only ended up staying there for 3 hours instead of 6 days because the hotel rooms were gross. The first room we checked into didn't have any furniture--only a bed and a TV on a stand--there were no dressers or mirrors...

When we arrived at the hotel, they didn't have us booked in the upgraded room of which we paid for. It took them 3 HOURS to book everyone in as we showed up in a bus from the Airport. They didn't have any upgrades available and no one spoke any English at the front desk so they didn't even know...

To say I was dissappointed is an understatement. For an all inclusive it was very dissappointing. Most of the staff was absolutely wonderful! The facility however needs some major improvements. First off we have booked our trip 6-8 months out, with 2 queen size beds and when we arrived they had us three ladies in a king size bed...plezzzeeee.... They...

We stayed at the resort from Dec 6 through 13. The grounds were well kept, and the pool area was great for adults and kids alike. As mentioned previously the resort is on the edge of a hill, so expect a good hike if you are in one of the top units Closest to the Lobby, Units 1-4 If I...

We were here in October, Hotel was great - no problems with aircon, although a few bites out of the bed were had, this was solved by us asking the bed to be changed every day The hotel has beautiful views from all directions, the black sand is not dirty-it just gives that appearance, it is very soft and silky...
