ROOMS


The Resort has 32 rooms, and one villa that is a two bedroom/bath with an upstairs loft for additional sleeping. The properties 32 rooms are located in eight buildings overlooking the bay, each building has two units per floor with two floors. All walls and floors are concrete with a 6' X 8' outside deck access through sliding doors.

 

The units are accessed by a circular driveway used by our electric carts so that the facilities are kept quite. The carts move guests from the Palenque building which houses the resorts lobby, pool, restaurant and bar.

 

 

 

Unit distribution

 

 

The eight units positioned on a sloping hillside that reaches down to the bay shoreline and the Punta Vista Bahia lookout point which divides the property into two different shoreline types. The first 50 meters of shoreline are kept natural as is the law in Costa Rica which allows the howler monkey troop that uses the property for their home to live. This natural shoreline is green leaved in the May to December time and then when the dry season starts in December leaves are shed and the view of the bay becomes open. The resorts Shoreline trail allows each of the rooms to get access to the two beaches directly on the property, our swimming beach we call Playitas (little beach) and the larger mile long beach of Playa Panama.

 

 

Rooms have wi-fi, cable television, small kitchenette with microwave and table for four and of course air conditioning with the ceiling fans that make for comfortable air circulation. The sofa turns into a sleeper and when needed we prefer to make up the bed with a special mattress that accommodates a wonderful sleep.

 

The morning sunrise is at 6:00 am and is the time when birds and the monkeys are howling to proclaim their territory. The properties hillside faces the rising morning sun and calm waters of the bay when the airflow is calm. As the day continues, by 11:00 am the suns intensity has begun to push the airflow (wind) which comes directly into the property from the east. In the tropics, the weather comes from the east rather than the west as is in North America. This airflow allows for a comfortable, hot weather attire of shorts and light clothing.

 

The resort provides guest with morning breakfast served in the Palenque building and a typical breakfast is similar to the one pictured. Cereals, pancakes or other items are likewise available.

 

 

 

Villa

The Resort was initially envisioned in early 1990's by a LaCross Wisconsin gentleman by the name of Jeff Laufel. Jeff, having fallen in love with Costa Rica, growing up with Wisconsin lakes and Mississippi River with fishing saw the Papagayo calm bay waters as ideal for a fishing lodge. The Punta Vista Bahia peninsula juts out into the bay which creates an impediment to outflowing tidal waters. This physical restriction on the waters flow results in tidal waters moving faster on one side of this little rock peninsula and lifts the lighter sand material washing it into the bay leaving a rocky bottom which creates a holding spot for crustaceans which fish then come in for feeding.

 

The Palenque building used by the resort for facilities was initially built by Jeff as the beginning of the resort development and then he built to Villa house for a Grafton Wisconsin banker, Ralph Zaun to use as guest rooms. This building is using old hardwoods of Costa Rica that can no longer be found shows a world just twenty years ago that has vanished. Railing guards of mangrove roots that for environmental reasons are now prohibited for cutting due to the knowledge that mangrove habitat is the nursery for fish which of course would be ruined if all the mangroves were harvested for decorative railings! The old structure is ideal for a larger family wanting to stay in a rustic, outdoor screened in setting.

 

The villa has two master bedrooms with baths on the first level, wide decks with sliding wall panels that open for airflow. The bedrooms on the first level are air-conditioned with multiple ceiling fans while the rest of the house uses fans for airflow. The house has an upstairs loft with additional beds but they are not air-conditioned except for the ceiling fans. The living room and kitchen are ideal for a family gathering with a rustic feel in a tropical setting. The Master bedrooms are expansive and can accommodate additional single beds if so needed.

 

The morning sunrise is at 6:00 am and is the time when birds and the monkeys are howling to proclaim their territory.

Rooms are accessed from the lobby by either walking the short road or by electric cart which moves guests to and from the Palenque Building without road traffic to keep the resort quite and not disturb the wildlife
