Pushing a 3*

26 July 2015

We have just returned from the Papagayo. As mentioned in other reviews the pool is still full of grime... there was also an outbreak of impetigo whilst we were there that was played down unless you...

We travelled here on the 4th of July til the 15th. Their was 11 of us when we travelled (3 separate family's), when you arrive you are given your key and your all inclusive wrist bands (if you went all inclusive) if you arrive round about breakfast, lunch or dinner you can leave your bags and suitcases in a room below reception until your finished, I thought this was a good idea but I didn't feel as if it was safe. Our room was on the top floor so we had to carry our suitcases up stairs which was painful, the stairs were a little steep also. When we stayed we could here a digger from our apartment in the morning until night, it was annoying but nothing could be done, the food was ok breakfast was very very repetitive, I never went to the restaurant for lunch I just went to the snack bar which was next to the bar, they had pizza, chips, burgers and hotdogs. Not forgetting the half frozen yogurt, their was salad aswell but i was really put off that as flies kept landing on it. The pool is salt water and so is the fountain in the pool, the first few days we arrived it wasn't too salty but every couple of nights this man comes and throws piles of salt into the pool and does the same with the baby pool. This was the first resort I had been to with salt water pools and I didn't enjoy it. I prefer it with out salt and just chlorine, the pool was also very dirty if you look down to the bottom of the pool with snorkels then you'll understand what I mean. The maids aren't very good they don't come on weekends, you only get fresh towels a few times a week (I was here for 11 days) the maid always put a dirty towel over the bath, I was in once due to heat stroke she came in cleaned the floor, didn't pick anything up just cleaned around them, didn't even think to let the floor dry I almost slipped. She doesn't do much for a maid, their was shops outside the resort supermacado was really dear. Their is a bowling alley down stairs and with a bar/pizzeria, pizza's are normally round about €6.50 but it depends what you get and you have to pay for drinks down their also, the bowling was good but it got jammed a few times and the man had to go and fix it. The restaurant across from reception was good, you have to book it a day in advance but the food their was good, their wasn't much choice it was brilliant. But the food at the down stairs restaurant was pretty much the same apart from when they had their Mexican night, that was amazing they had fajitas and Doritos and more. The entertainment was mostly focused on little children their wasn't really anything for teenagers or anything at night which was boring but during the day they were good they had a timetable of activities for each day instead of Saturday and mostly Sunday as that was their day off. You had to pay for the safe and wifi was only free 8-12 and you had to pay more money if you wanted (I wouldn't pay a lot of money as it is very slow and you could probably get faster up the street in the bars) overall it was a good stay but I think something's need improving.

Another Great Holiday... Hotel needs some maintenance...

We have just returned from the Papagayo. As mentioned in other reviews the pool is still full of grime... there was also an outbreak of impetigo whilst we were there that was played down unless you were in the know. We only knew as we overheard discussions with the rep about rashes (which my son got), some children obviously reacted worse to the infection... the pool was then treated. It took 5 days into the holiday to see the pool cleaned once. Food was better than we expected but we also enjoyed eating on the 'strip'. The rooms didn't have aire con which was a killer even though they provided a fan. The safe didn't work so had to lock it in numerous suitcases. At night the entertainment started 8.30pm with children's disco (6 songs repeated) bingo about 9/9.30 and after that most was around 10pm and when with children that gets a bit late (not that it was that good) I wouldn't rush back

Corralejo and Oasis Papagayo!

We have stayed at the Oasis Papagayo Resort a numerous amount of times now and we still think of it as one of our most favourite hotels. We returned this July to find the hotel touched up since the previous year and looking much better. The complex as a whole is very clean and the rooms are too. Some of the furniture in the rooms needs to be replaced or in need of some TLC but it is perfectly fine to use and relatively comfortable. The maid service was fantastic and she cleaned the whole room everyday (except Fridays and Sundays), the towels and bedding were changed as advised (towels twice a week and bedding one a week). The reception staff are generally very helpful/friendly and will assist you anyway they can. The Main pool area is very open and there are plenty of sunbeds (some of which are still broken and need replacing) and we never needed to reserve any in the morning as there was always a sufficient amount. The pools are saltwater pools but we find this to be ok. The pools need to cleaned more regular as I think they were only cleaned once in our whole 2 week stay. The olympic pool was closed during our visit for maintenance. When around the pool area be careful of a couple of broken/lifted tiles as these can be a trip hazard. Also, be cautious at night as sometimes the lights around the pool are switched off. Furthermore, some lights along the paths are also out and need to be looked at by the maintenance staff. The pool bar food and drink was of good quality and is still reasonably priced (happy hour 3:30 till 4:30 and is buy one get one free). Cant comment on the all inclusive food as we stayed self catering. The entertainment at the hotel this year is much better when compared to last year. The entertainment is provided by Sunny Animation and the staff are very friendly and energetic and always try to get you involved. However, what activities are on each day is guessing game as they dont seem to follow the activities outlined on the board at reception or near the pool bar. If you have a late return flight and want to book a late checkout room you need to go to reception at midday the day before to see if there is availability for one. It is €20 to keep your room until 2pm or €30 to keep it until 5pm. We managed to get a room but we know from experience that in the busier month of august these are harded to obtain so if you can book with your operator before you go, then do this. However the hotel does offer shower and changing facilities on the ground floor of reception for you to use free of charge. Overall, the hotel is very good but the hotel definately needs some maintenance. However, we would not hesitate to return in the future. We travelled with Jet2 Holidays.

Good For a 3* Hotel

15 July 2015

The Oasis Papagayo is a 3* hotel and doesn't claim to be anything more. Therefore, if you go with this expectation, you will not be disappointed. Having read a number of reviews before we went (we...

We arrived on 3rd July late in the evening. On arrival reception staff were very friendly and professional. We were in room 73b in the Papagayo. When we found our room at first we were a bit disappointed but we have got used to it. Rooms are basic but functional. We have a 2 bedroom ground floor apartment....all 2 beds are on ground floor......very spacious with a television which we have never had on. Rooms have a fully functioning kitchen with microwave and hob. What I will say is that the rooms could do with a revamp as they are outdated and grubby in appearance. If you have any problems maintenance are on it right away and problem fixed. The Papagayo is really widespread and laud it very well, the garden grounds are immaculate and beautifully kept. There are three swimming pools all salt water and one Olympic sized pool that you have to pay to use. The main pool is huge and sunbeds are aplenty with no lack of space or shade brolly things. It's not the warmest of pools but it's lovely. On the negative side the pool is a bit grimy and at times has black floaty things floating about and I have read this in other reviews. Both of our sons have developed red sore spotty blisters from the pool as have others here on holiday but no idea what they are. We are self catering which we prefer so I cannot comment on the food although I have heard its typical all inclusive. The drinks are rubbish and not branded and may I say that when you buy a drink you get the same crap that the all inclusive get which doesn't seem right. The pool bar does take away snacks which we had a couple of times by the pool to save going out and it was ok. The Sunny animation team are fantastic and go all out to make sure you have a good time. Entertainment is ok but not great at night. the resort is 10 minute walk from town but it's straight and flat...I have mobility issues but had no problems. A taxi is 2 euros 50 cents or there abouts. Corralejo is absolutely beautiful and so clean. We didn't do trips but heard the catamaran and buggy safaris by far the best. We went to sand dunes. .....walked took us about one hour. ...but beautiful and worth the effort to get there. The beaches are stunning with pure white sand. The town has a huge variety of restaurants and bars most if which have live music. There is a huge hyperdino supermarket at the music square which is by far the cheapest and a 10 minute walk from resort but stock up and get a taxi back as we did. We never experienced any problems with any staff at the resort but a special commendation must go to the young man in the club bar. ..he serves on his own and always smiling. The cleanliness of rooms is not the best which I have read before. The Papagayo has a laundry...bike centre....surf school....bowling...in fact it's a good all round resort. Go expecting little and be surprised as we were. a holiday is what you make it after all. Happy holidays.
