Sandos Papagayo Beach Resort

This place has mountain views, a beach on the doorstep, and a great choice of pools and restaurants.

Locations don’t get much more dramatic than this. One side of the hotel looks out to Los Ajaches mountain range, the other has panoramic views across the Atlantic. Plus the beach is around 5 minutes away on foot.

Within the hotel grounds you’ll find 5 pools in total, a trio of big ones and 2 just for kids. And of the 5 restaurants, the French one really stands out. Activities are covered with tennis courts and hiking trails.

All in all a nice experience!

+: Good food in the buffet restaurant (best grilled chicken I've ever tasted), but the breakfast bacon was not crispy, that was a bit sad. Nice outdoor facilities, nice view across the sea and over to the island of Fuerteventura. The shows at night was not particulary interesting, the exception was the show with the three singing tenors, that was GREAT! I loved that! Top quality, especially "Pavarotti" (I don't know his name, the oldest of the three) BRAVISSIMO! -: The facilities lack maintenance to some extent. There was also a little whiff of sewage in our bathroom/room from time to time (basement in the A-block), and the beds were terrible! Far to hard! My back suffered from that. A few of the staff members need to learn to smile a little more. I alway act polite and thankful when I ask for something. And expect a mutual response to that. All in all we had a good time there!More

Jon B,

A very relaxing Hotel

I would recommend this Hotel as the staff work very hard to keep you happy, from front desk to the cleaners. Pools are great and the location spectacular. Just remember to take the upgrade option as it is worth it.More

Best and only good thing...PRICE!

PROs: - Activities for children - Many Pools CONs: - Food: too much but definetely not with a good quality - Rooms: furniture from the 70's, beds with mattress curved, bad smell coming from the pipes. 2 queen beds attached instead of a single double bed. - No Hotel beach available, but only swimming pools...and for a hotel with the word "beach" inside its name it's awful Ok, my love for resort is inversely related to their size...and this one's so huge! 488 rooms! Good for families...NOT RECOMMENDED for young couples, married people, etc.More

Lovely stay

We were changed to this hotel 13 hours before our flight due to refurbishment at the original hotel booked - we were apprehensive as the hotel was nearly 4 times larger than the original accommodation but we were so glad we were changed! The hotel is run excellently - the staff were all very friendly and professional - you would not believe you were in a large hotel as everything is plentiful - the food is excellent - choices, quality and quantity - too many choices some days :) the room we had was very spacious and immaculately clean as was the hotel. The pools were spotless and all the public areas - in fact, I do not believe we have been to a hotel where every public toilet was to such a high standard - we upgraded to the royal elite package and again - exceptional value for money - well worth it if you prefer a quiet breakfast in chilled surroundings and same said for the 2 lounges - especially the rooftop terrace :) We will definitely be returning and will be recommending this hotel - more 5 * than 4 * - Julie & DeanMore

Relaxing week

I liked the hotel and had a relaxing break. Hotel is spotless and food is good. I was lucky to get a table in the Mexican restaurant but found the Oriental restaurant to be full. It would be good if they good find larger facilities for these two restaurants and perhaps open at lunchtime to give guests a better chance . I was in Block G, without a sea view. This was the only minus point as I looked onto rough terrain.More
