Andaz is a large resort in an attractive location within a private reserve spanning some 1,400 acres on the Papagayo Peninsula in north western Costa Rica. This property has a laid-back feel in keeping with the area’s relaxed pace of life and occupies a lovely position overlooking the clear, turquoise waters of Culebra Bay. Belonging to the Hyatt portfolio, Andaz boasts a wide range of on-site amenities and facilities including an 18-hole golf course and a wonderful spa. There’s also a whole host of water and land-based activities and excursions to enjoy.

The accommodation comprises 132 guestrooms and 21 suites, all of which have a contemporary, spacious feel and come with a private balcony and sweeping views of the bay. Four of the suites include plunge pools and all rooms and suites have air conditioning, ceiling fans and a generous en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower. Floor-to-ceiling windows admit plenty of natural light thus lending the rooms a bright, airy feel. Both the concierge service and room service are readily available round-the-clock, and complimentary snacks and non-alcoholic beverages are also provided.

When it comes to exploring the area, there’s no shortage of activities and excursions to choose from. Some of the many options on offer include a guided caving session at Barra Honda National Park, a trip to the hot springs in the beautiful Arenal Volcano National Park, visits to the provincial capital and seaside towns, scuba diving sessions, an ATV ride through the forest and a visit to one of the area’s largest animal sanctuaries.

The line-up of on-site activities is just as diverse. Guests have exclusive access to the resort’s 18-hole golf course and can make use of equipment for activities such as beach games, snorkelling and kayaking, all for no extra cost. There are over two dozen classes offering guests the chance to learn some Spanish, mix drinks, paint pottery, learn some yoga techniques and pick up lots of other new skills. As well as all this, there’s a bike-share program, eleven miles of pristine coastline to explore and the chance to take part in weekly community projects.

Children are welcome and the resort is very family friendly indeed. There’s one club for young children, and another tailored to those aged 12-16, plus there’s a separate swimming pool purely for families. This is a large resort, so parents are reminded to ensure that their children remain under adult supervision at all times.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
