The Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort, from the renowned hotel chain Hyatt, was listed as one of the best hotels in the world under the family destination category, in Condé Nast Traveler's 18th annual "hot list," highlighting the best hotels that debuted during 2013.
Andaz Papagayo stands quietly and almost imperceptible among the trees, overlooking the sapphire blue waters of Culebra Bay. With spectacular design by renowned Costa Rican architect Ronald Zurher, the first Latin American Andaz, was inspired by the organic forms and shapes of the native flora and fauna, using the shapes of cocoons and shells for the hotel's facilities, stimulating the sense of guests in new and refreshing ways.
True to the Andaz brand, Andaz Papagayo will reflect Costa Rica's Pura Vida philosophy, creating locally-inspired experiences and engaging guests in the local culture in a comfortable, unique atmosphere for which Andaz is known.
Easter Week Alcohol Restrictions: presently Costa Rica law does not permit the service of alcoholic beverages on Thursday and Friday of Easter week.
The unique gastronomic experience of the Andaz Papagayo ́s Cuisine features three themed restaurants. Each one tells a story about the culture, gatherings around a tree as the indigenous used to do, or the enhancement of the fisherman culture in the area. Totally open kitchens allow a distinctive interaction with chefs, making guests feel like if they were visiting family or the home of a friend.Rio Bhongo Restaurant
