Very nice place, good location
We spent a very good time at that hotel. Service was good, food was good. Local shop is overprized:). Do not check out early morning (around 6 A.M.) Hardly to find staff.

Mu third time there and recommended.
Came back to the hotel for third time, has different management, own by Barcelo now. Nor famous for being well organized but it was a positive surprise. New staff that need a few months to be at their fullest. International and domestic alcholic drinks wich is great. Recommendations: 1. If you drive with Waze, please make sure you look for "Barcelo Occidental Grand Papagayo", otherwise it send you an hour away.2. they give you a chance to excusive restaurants (Asian and Italian) if you stay for more than three days. Both are good. For the Asian you have the choice to have the cooking in front of you which is nice. 3. At the beach there area couple of local massage therapist, not affiliated to the hotel, but they are quite good and price is good as ell. 4. the hotel beach is not private (legally beaches are not privatized in Costa Rica, thanks goodness), so do not take valuables when going to the beach. 5. be aware that sunsets are not be be seeing directly since the hotel is in front of a bay and not lokk directly to the ocean, but sunset are great. 6. Go to karaoke night, it is a lot of fun.

Severely Disappointed
We came to this resort for NYE. I will give you the good things 1st resort was well kept host at Italian restaurant was amazing food in Italian rest and asian was great rooms spacious beds comfortable Not Great Things Staff was incredibly un-accommidating No one told us there was a 3rd restaurant They only serve food certain times a day so do not be fooled by the all inclusive The pool is small On NYE there was only a buffet (food was gross) served on the lawn in the Heat They have few options of you are GF You can only make reservations on the day of for dinner No lotion in rooms No Top Shelf Liquor Wifi service was non existent Very few outlets in rooms Lighting in rooms is poor Beaches are not pretty and they are Public When I asked to speak with the manager, I was told there was no one there to speak to, this occurred 2 times on my trip! No one there in charge...really?? Beware of skunks. They join you on the patio for dinner and drinks The food on the buffet is the same every day for breakfast and lunch and it is not good! There was a ton of chlorine in the pool If you have never been to an all inclusive before, you may be ok with this property. If you have been to one before this will sorely disappoint you!

Service was great, Italian restaurant way below average, hibachi restaurant at best average and the buffet below average. But people working there are great of general manager and or the owner read this, I would hope that they bring new chef.
