    Beautiful views, great service!

    We recently stayed at Occidental Papagayo 4 nights for a couples vacation. The resort and the views are gorgeous. Costa Rica has lots of activities to explore. We snorkeled on the beach with Reuben and he was a fantastic guide- he found 4 amazing sea turtles for us to see! Our poolside service by Alexander and Cesar was on point- they were very attentive. Room service was quick- in fact, all of the restaurants had quick service and delightful employees. The food in the Italian restaurant was best, but overall the food is what you would expect at an all-inclusive (good not great).
