    Just OK, and service/staff was awful.

    We had come to Papagayo Resort one day for the beach and found it to be quite nice, so when I booked my second trip with girlfriends, we decided on a two bedroom villa at the resort. Unfortunately, I so wish we would have gone back to the place we stayed previously as the service, amenities and staff were not up to snuff. I would be giving them an even lower review, but the manager did eventually contact me during the stay and apologize and refund our resort fees. The resort pool and restaurant was under construction, but they still wanted to charge us an extra $360 for 2 people staying at the 2 bedroom villa. I kept asking - what does that additional charge include? $30/pp per day is a steep fee when all your amenities are actually under construction and not usable. One morning at 8AM a huge truck backed up into the yard and dumped sand for over 20 minutes, so loud it woke up everyone in the villa. When we arrived in the villa it was definitely more run-down than the pictures show, paint was chipping, the floor boards were scuffed. All the plugs were European - we called down to the front desk as the welcome packet did state that they had converters available for use - they were SO RUDE, they said, no, sorry they didn't have any and it's 8PM so we couldn't find any anywhere. We ended up walking down to the Hotel to borrow some after three screaming matches with the rude concierge. Everyone just seems angry/annoyed that they're working there and not polite at all.

    Really liked the overall beach experience, the supermarket nearby, the fantastic fitness centre, the fun design of the villa with sliding doors and the security. Was so not impressed with the Mothers Day brunch. Did not like the mosquitoes either. Overall positive experience. Thank you!

    The property has a nice Infiniti beach close by to the hotel and always large availability of The papagoya beach resort with the villas is extremely outdated. The room walls are dirty, the sheets had stains, and there were always numerous amounts of tiny ants in the kitchen.

    Important for non-European / non-Dutch visitors: Contrary to the rest of Curacao: there are only "Dutch" electricity plugs available in the villas, and no adapters at the reception area. So if you want to be able to use your electronic devises and charge your phone, you have to bring your own adapters.

    Open living room concept is terrible. Birds fly in when any of the doors are open, ants all over the places, no AC in the living good and terribly uncomfortable furniture makes it impossible to spend any time there. The porch is reall nice and the showers were great.

    The property is across the street from the beach, we had an ocean view room and barely saw any ocean, mostly just cars driving by. Living room area has no air conditioning and shutters instead of windows in living room and bathrooms. Only air conditioning is in the bedrooms. Lots of mosquitos, flies, ants and bugs all over. We were bitten up big time, even though we used bug spray and tried to keep all windows/doors closed. The beds are very hard. Cleaning lady came in one morning while we were sleeping, opened the door and proceeded to clean with my kids in the living room watching TV, this was very odd. When my husband asked her to come back later, she disregarded and continued to clean. Beach chairs that belong to this hotel are only by the Infifinity pool. The others you have to pay for. I did not enjoy the accommodations.

  • 6.0.Good

    The resort is very different from the hotel. The property is big, near the beach, and has almost everything you need. The resort was simply appointed. It was not comfortable though as there is no AC in the living room and the mattress and pillow were both hard. The towels, both bath and beach, were very used and should be replaced. Housekeeping was stingy with the towels too. Reception was nice but slow, on island time. While the bungalows are nice for groups I would try a different place on my next visit.

    Just returned from a week in a villa at Papagayo Beach Resort and can’t wait to go back. Our villa was very comfortable (it has a huge veranda to enjoy those island breezes) and the two-bedroom, two-bathroom and kitchen setup suited us me and my husband, and my senior-aged parents) perfectly. The cleaning staff are great, coming every day and mopping the floors every other day. The resort staff were helpful and friendly. Papagayo is close to a well-stocked Dutch supermarket, very handy for groceries, and the the resort is a short walk from the beach. There is also a sushi place (Kyoto) we enjoyed, beside the supermarket!
