Very good hotel would be brilliant with a few tweaks
Just returned from this hotel on the 13th October. The desk staff are lovely and very helpful, but for your first time I do think there should be porters to take you to your room as the hotel is huge and will take you a few days to get your bearings and also to be advised if you are a late arriver to be advised that there is a small eating area near the adult section where you can have something to eat till breakfast. The entrance area to the hotel is amazing with it's three floors that offer seating and tranquillity if required. We upgraded to Elite and the rooms are beautiful and very clean as is all of the hotel. The elite restaurant is lovely to dine in and very tranquil. The food is lovely but I do feel that they should upgrade the facilities for keeping the food hot as the food seemed to be just warm and in turn warm food sitting for a long time can be open to bacteria, in saying that the quality and choice of good was very good and full of flavour. We loved the adult area including the pool and jacuzzi. All in all we really enjoyed a very restful and lovely holiday. We would both recommend this hotel and although a huge hotel uou do not feel over faced with people. The marina is fabulous and is only ten minutes away and coaches are provided by the hotel. Well worth a visit. The weather was in the thirties but a nice breeze accompanied it. Lovely staff right down to the cleaning ladies. We will be returningMore
I first visited this hotel in August 2016 as an anniversary gift from my daughters! What a beautiful surprise. The girls requested a beach view room which isn't always guaranteed if not a Royal Elite guest. Our room welcome included a letter of congratulations (which was for me getting on a plane after ten years of not flying!) and a very welcoming bottle of bubbles on ice with a lovely aloe bathroom gift set. The room was clean and the fridge stocked with cold soft drinks and water. The room also comes with tea making facilities and of course air con! As my daughters had been to this hotel previously exploring was pretty easy with two tour guides. Several pools one of which is adult only. A 24 hour snack bar. Handy for late night toasties and pancake hour in the afternoons, and a rule of no towels on beds around pools before a certain time. Please be warned the pool staff do remove them if you put them down too early. Second visit we returned in October 2016 as Royal Elite guests. This gives you access to RE bars and restaurants. The RE restaurant is still help yourself all inclusive buffet style but wine and drinks etc are served to you at your table. Weather wasn't great we did get a couple of days heavy rain. But we're British and nothing stops us enjoying ourselves. The daily entertainment was quickly changed to indoor activities, children and adults were kept busy competing for the all important winners certificate and of course the bottle of bubbly. So our third holiday here in a year brings me to August 2017. What a warm welcome when we walked into reception. Again we returned as Royal Elite guests just for the added extras, had we not been able to book RE we would of happily returned as standard booking. Again as a birthday surprise we had the very welcome bottle on ice waiting in our room and the complimentary bath robes and slippers. Standard and Royal Elite restaurants are clean, well stocked with an array of food to suit every dietary choice. The entertainment team work morning to night. From walks along the coast to aqua gym and pool games for all ages to the shows in the theatre at night. Worth keeping an eye on the entertainment board you might be watching the Lion King or taking part in a music quiz. The hotel and pool areas are clean and tidy. The grounds are well maintained and most rooms have lovely views from their balconies. You can do as much or little as you like. Plenty for all ages. Take a walk to the local market and marina. Enjoy cocktails overlooking the marina. Feast on tapas. Catch the courtesy bus to town. Or sail on a catamaran to the island or Lobos. Ride camels. BBQ at a volcano. Diving to the underwater museum. If you don't want to visit the shopping centre, or marina with its many shops and market. Venture out of the front of hotel and visit the local shops, there is a supermarket, gift shops, a pub and restaurant, wine bar or if you're feeling adventurous hire a bike. A long review but we have covered 3 holidays and this doesn't cover it all. I've left some surprises for you. More
Fusion Restuarant - Mexican Night
The restaurant has alternate Chinese and Mexican nights. We tried the Chinese on our first visit in January and commented in our Sandos Papagayo review confirming we would try the Mexican night during our September visit. Food was excellent and we enjoyed the Tacos amongst a variety of other dishes. To enhance the experience it would be great if the restaurant dressed for each theme night as this is lacking, branding around the restaurant, waiters in Chines/Mexican dress, the on site photography team visiting to take pictures to be purchased as a keepsake of your visit, this would really add to the evenings. Aside from that we have a lovely evening with friends and look forward to visiting again in May 2018 when we return.More
We have just returned from such a beautiful honeymoon at the Sandos Papagayo, and I only wish we could have stayed for two weeks as opposed to one! The hotel is absolutely beautiful inside, with large, super clean modern rooms. We upgraded to a junior suite, which was lovely because it had a terrace complete with amazing views over the ocean towards Fueteventura. We decided to go for the Royal Elite package, which is worth every penny. We loved being able to have breakfast and dinner in the special dining room, plus you are able to drink in the Royal Elite lounges which were well stocked with good quality branded drinks which you could help yourself to. We were also treated to a lovely bottle of cava on ice for our arrival. The staff around the hotel are all really pleasant and helpful, they couldn't do enough for us. We loved every second and would definitely return! More
