"The staff went out of their way to accommodate us—first switching rooms after being disturbed early morning with kids playing and then even fixing a flat tire we got on the road. I also found the concerige (I think her name was Stephanie) super helpful in making our trip memorable."

Andaz, which translated from its Sanskrit origin means "style," has been personified in the luxurious Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort in Costa Rica. The 28-acre, oceanfront property has three restaurants, an 11,000-square-foot spa with indoor and outdoor treatment rooms and year-round access to two pools and a private beach.

Guest rooms were crafted to showcase the natural surroundings of the lush Culebra Bay. The rain shower in the bathroom has floor-to-ceiling glass doors, simulating the feeling of being drenched in the Costa Rican jungle, and its pebble floor mimics the feeling of walking barefoot along the shore.

Guest rooms are meant to mirror sleeping on the beach or in a jungle, but with all the modern luxuries. They are intentionally decorated with minimal distractions to emphasize the view; sand-colored driftwood panels and laurel desks and wardrobes blend into the wood and beach background.

Other Comments
It's important to note for travelers that food and drinks at the resort are pricey and that you are not super close to a town. Very remote - but in a good way.
