Active volcanoes blurring the skyline, unspoiled, tropical rainforest, and pristine beaches gleaming with golden sand make Costa Rica a paradise. The all-inclusive Allegro Papagayo, with its never-ending, freeform pool and delicious food, is the perfect fit within this paradise. The Allegro Papagayo‘s all-inclusive resort includes all meals, snacks, and drinks, an open bar, weekly cocktail parties, activities and sports, a Beach Club, a Fun Club, a Kids Club with supervised activities, and live evening entertainment.
After long days of white-water rafting, zip-lining, Tarzan swinging, Nicaragua touring, underwater picture taking, and all-inclusive drinking any bed would have been comfortable, but with linen colors that reflected the sand and surf, our king-sized bed engulfed our tired bodies and our pillows felt like fluffy clouds under our heads. Most all-inclusive resorts are lacking in the comfort area when it comes to the room but we were blessed with both comfort and convenience. The in-room internet was the unexpected bonus that added to my already strong opinion of the room, and the shower pressure that actually got the soap out of my excessive amounts of hair was the final touch. Our room was a haven.
The variety and freshness of the food and drinks kept me deliciously enthusiastic and thirsting for more. Even after a full day of drinks with fresh bananas and strawberries, they never ran out. Unlike several resorts in Jamaica and beyond, the “unlimited” drinks truly were unlimited, regardless of time or request.
The fun and splashing around began as soon as we were poolside. We took advantage of the pool bar and clean waters while taking some underwater photos and enjoying the company of each other. At no point did we feel crowded or bothered by others.
Although the beach didn’t have the white sands of Mexico, it was a private oasis with plenty of seating and shade from the trees. The calm, cove waves made kayaking a breath of fresh air and a relaxing venture.
Whether we were indulging in a la carte dining experience with international drinks at one of the many fine restaurants or discovering the simple pleasures at the most spectacular beaches and pools in Costa Rica, there truly were no limits when it came to our enjoyment and relaxation at Occidental Allegro Papagayo.
