Andaz Peninsula Papagayo
Nestled in a location that is second to none, where the Gulf of Papagayo meets the sapphire blue waters of Culebra Bay, Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort captures the native spirit of Costa Rica with its distinctive “Pura Vida” (pure life) philosophy. The breathtaking setting – a relaxing ocean with a mountainous background – will make you feel like you belong in this lush natural setting. This is environmentally sensitive, high class, and visually creative as well: its curvaceous villas are inspired by seashells and cocoons.
Rooms and suites spill down the hillside toward the beach. Standard rooms are large and luxe, warmly decorated in a modern style, with plentiful use made of local wood.
The bay view rooms are special. The Andaz Peninsular Papagayo is all about helping you relax in five-star tropical splendor.
With nine spa treatment rooms, three excellent themed restaurants and the calming sound of two cascading outdoor pools you will soon feel recharged and refreshed.
Children are welcome and there is a kids club for children from 4-12 years. On the other hand, there is an adults-only pool for couples.
This area has always been somewhat separated from the rest of the country (it was once annexed by Nicaragua), and has its own regional flavours and customs. The white sand beaches are popular escape spots, though, especially the more glamorous ones such as Playa Conchal. Many of the small fishing villages are now buzzing with visitors, and a once sleepy hub now has day and nightlife.
