It was a beautiful resort. We had an upgraded room which seemed like it was well worth it. We heard a lot of people who were staying in the basic rooms complaining so we were very happy we upgraded, had a view of the bay and no problems. The beach wasn't what we expected (small) but nice warmer than the ocean but kind of rocky. Food was alright nothing amazing but not bad, wish their was more native food. But the restaurants on site had great staff. Activities were good through the hotel, but don't trust a guy on the beach Trans Tours- Jaime, he told us we were getting a tour with all kinds of activities really we sat on a boat for 6 hours and fished for $300. Complete liar. This is really a quiet resort and there are alot of older people there. If you are looking to party and be around a lot of younger people this isn't the resort for you, but my boyfriend and i had a nice relaxing time regardless. I would rate this hotel at more of a 3.5 or 4 start hotel than 5 star though. While its not in disrepair if you are used to ritzy 5 star's you shouldn't stay here.

Really enjoyed the stay at Sol Papagayo resort at Panama Beach/Costa Rica. Not only was service really nice, but the kitchen staff was very accomodating to us, since we are vegetarians. The location was awesome, in the forest, and to our surprise when we were having breakfast in an open dining room, a troupe of howler monkeys about 20 of them, came by and gave us a show on the trees above us. Incredible. Also as we were taking pictures of the monkeys, we noticed the calm bay and the ocean right there, 30 feet from where we were standing by the pool. Safety also was a great asset to this hotel. Will be back again .
