Great weather, clean apartment and friendly reps & staff. It was the low season (25th Nov) so several attractions such as the water park were closed. The beaches are great, though expect to see naturists a plenty, there were hundreds of wrinkly's needing an iron. Corralejo has loads of restaurants to chose from, a two course meal with a bottle of wine will cost you 35 to 50 Euro, two breakfasts will set you back 16 to 18 Euro, when I go again, I will def think of going half board. The trips were expensive, ranging from a coach trip to another beech at 30 Euro to a night at a show (inc meal) at 50 Euro or a submarine ride at 79 Euro, if you have family taking a trip, can be expensive. Car hir was cheep enough, 3 days cost us 60 Euro, traveling is easy, the roads are great, what we realy noticed was the way all vehicles stopped at pedestrian crossings, the place felt safe. I would def go again
My wife and i have just returned from a week at the Papagayo,this was our 2nd time there and found a big difference, they are more orientated towards the All Inclusive market, although we were self catering,the pool bar i thought was very poor,the female behind the bar was very slow, she had no interest, and she made some small children wait a considerable time before she served them, i know that because i was waiting behind them, the choice of food was limited and that is if she understood you.
On the day of arrival we went to get our allocated room but it was not ready, when you consider you have to be of your room by 11:00am and this is now 13:30, our room was basic with few cooking amenities, a toaster that did not work on the 2nd day.
The actual walk down to the town centre is about 20mins, we found a lovely pub "Chablis" a British bar that done fabulous food (huge helpings) and a good atmosphere, and the staff were brilliant.
I know you can expect everyone to be touting for buisness(food) but this visit it seemed to be dreadful, as soon as you got within 50 metres of the "strip" they seem to drop out the sky, every night i probably collected 10/12 brochures & menus, the paper chain must be horrendous for them to deal with.
I know that the Euro is having a kicking at the moment, but prices have rocketed, we are not drinkers by any means, but we do enjoy a cup of tea, paying between 1.50 & 2.00 euros was really expensive i thought,
Having said all that i plan on going back again next year same hotel, same resort but i hope i get a better room this.
Stayed at the Oasis Papagayo from 18th November to 25th November. Hotel itself is a nice clean comfortable place to stay, rooms are nice and clean. The main swimming pool with the fountain could do with a clean. I went in the first day and never went back in again, the 2 small bottom pools are far nicer and safer for the kids too. Word of warning do not shop in any of the supermarkets close buy, they are 3 times the price of the UK. The best place to shop if your staying self catering is the Hyper-dino supermarket near the shell petrol station in town. Corellejo has lots of nice restaurants. If you like Indian try Jaipuri, it is superb. Worth hiring a car whilst you are there as it is great value for money. We hired a Fiesta and it cost us 76 Euros for 3 days. El costillo is defo worth a visit especially the beaches towards the lighthouse. All in all we had a great holiday although we did find it a tad expensive due to the terrible exchange rate.
we stayed at the oasis papagayo from the 18th-25th november 2009, short journey from the airport to the complex around 35 mins, weather was sunny every day with a mild wind. pools were good. only one chlorine though but you soon get used to the salt water. very clean around the pool and plenty of sun loungers available. we were self catering so did not try the food at complex but to what people commented while we were there they said it was poor and seemed to be the same thing every day!! we ate out at tiffanys a few nights and christinas kitchen. really good for money and the kids menus were great. the walk into town only took 20 mins and plenty of shops/resturaunts available. we caught the local number 6 bus to the sand dunes which we found easily and we also went to the oasis park for the day. plenty of shows and animals to be seen. alot of uphill walking so if u have a buggy be prepared!!! this was our first time abroad with the family and would definately come back to the same apartments. staff were helpful and the reps and childrens reps were great!!!
Apartments were in a poor condition with broken seats rusty steel chairs and damaged decoration.
The towels were unusable; they were torn and smelt of mildew.
We went all inclusive Food was terrible and very poor. Never any glasses for drinks and often had to use paper cups for wine in the bar. Even saw a rat in the dining hall after this had to eat out every meal and every day.
All inclusive doesnt mean all inclusive. If you wanted better towels or the remote control to operate the TV you have to pay extra.
In the week we stayed there the room was only cleaned once and had to leave the rubish out side the front door on most days.
The pools were very nice but very cold.
We are currently trying to get compensation but no luck yet.
Will not use Thomson again.
Thank you for your comments. With regards to the rat in the restaurant at this hotel, we have had no other sightings or comments from our guests. Our Quality Control team are regularly inspecting the premises so claims like this, and regarding the poor conditions of the rooms comes as a surprise. The worn towels complaints have been escalated to the management.
