NOTE: There is an UPDATE to this post.
I am very excited about an upcoming stay I have booked at the Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort in Costa Rica. I have never been to Costa Rica, and have heard marvelous reports on this hotel property.
The other day, a friend mentioned to me that this hotel now offers All Inclusive stays. This was the first I had heard of this. I Googled and searched, but couldn’t find any information. But then, I noticed that if I try to book a multi-day stay of at least 3 days, an All Inclusive rate option pops up.
The All Inclusive rate appears to be $150 per day more than the Standard Rate, and is the same whether the booking is made for one or two adults.
clicking on rate rules, this information came up:
ALL INCLUSIVE PACKAGE Breakfast Lunch Dinner and Beverages in all outlets:Including alcohol: – Booking Dates: 15SEP16 – 31OCT17 – Stay Dates: 15SEP16 – 31OCT17 – 3 Night Minimum Length of Stay
I called the Hyatt Diamond line to inquire further about this rate. In particular, I would like to know if it is available during the days of my stay, and if so, whether an All Inclusive feature can be added on to an award booking or a points and cash rate, and at what price. I am also curious if an All Inclusive rate option will be added to other Andaz and Hyatt hotels.
The Hyatt phone representative was not familiar with this new rate. She put me on hold and came back saying she had asked a number of people and no one was aware of it, and perhaps it was a mistake.
For those who have been to the Andaz Papagayo, would you pay an additional $150 per day for an All Inclusive option? I know I would!
I will be making further inquiries today about the details of this new rate and I will report back shortly. In the meantime, I will be dreaming of Costa Rica!
