This hidden gem has an authentic tropical vibe, excellent for discovering the country’s natural beauty. All rooms in the hotel have a balcony or terrace to enjoy those warm evenings as the sun goes down.

They also serve as perfect spots to admire the lush gardens as you eat your lunch. If you feel peckish, the mini-bar is refilled regularly so you can keep hydrated and full during your days of adventures and relaxation.

With dedicated customer service and comfortable, well-appointed rooms, this hotel is great to hide from the worries of the world and have a relaxing time.

Days Full of Activities

Admiring the sunset from the beach or lounging at one of the two swimming pools are an excellent option for those who want some quiet time. Lounge at one of the chairs by the pool or the ocean, and enjoy the soft breeze and palm trees at the property.

To level up the experience even more, stop by the U-Spa to be pampered with therapeutic massages or facials. Turkish baths and saunas are also great options to unwind and forget about the world outside.

However, the hotel also hosts cultural events, like themed music evenings three times a week. Indulge in the sounds of violins, saxophones, or guitars as played by masters of their craft. For something a little more competitive, you can also test yourself against other guests in a friendly game of chess or other table games.

There is also the on-site nightclub, where guests can dance with both American and Latino music as well as drink tasty signature cocktails until late at night.

If you want to pump it up there are also plenty of other activities, many of them complimentary. Head to the beach, where the calm waves of the Gulf make it a great area not just to swim but also to practice water sports.

Scuba diving, kayaking, and snorkeling are all good options if you want to admire the coast’s rich biodiversity. Keep your eyes open for a chance to spot stingrays, turtles, and puffer fish.

On land there is also chance to explore. Ride a bike across the property to breathe in the sea air and its peace, or exercise with a good game of tennis or volleyball. Guided walks are also available if you want to learn more about the area and Costa Rican nature and culture.

Local & International Dining

A good all-inclusive hotel makes sure its guests are well provided during meals, and Occidental Papagayo is no exception.

The three on-site restaurants and its four bars make for some of the best offerings in Costa Rican and international dishes, topped with attentive service and outstanding presentation.

The international buffet restaurant is called L’Buffet, and it’s open at select hours throughout the day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Here you can enjoy classic American favorites as well as Costa Rican traditional meals.

Overlooking the turquoise waters of the bay, The Italian offers a more elegant, yet relaxed ambiance for dinner. Try gourmet dishes with seasonal twists based on local flavors and products.

Similarly, D’Oriental provides a fusion between different Asian cuisines for those palates craving something even more exotic. Relax and dine in a peaceful and lively environment. Make sure to book your space for dinner, they go by pretty fast!

Finally, one of the bars is right at the pool. Grab a quick snack or a refreshing smoothie while splashing in the water. Or take a bite with you before going out to explore and play in the beach or forest. Don’t forget to try their Crazy Monkey drink for a delicious tropical drink.
