Occidental Grand Papgayo: All Inclusive Costa Rica Resort

Do you know anyone who’s done monkey watching? Or lounged in the shade of tall canopy trees long enough to spot a few exotic birds? Or anyone who has touched a dolphin? Do you want to be one of these people?
If these activities sound like things you want to experience on you next vacation, you might need to pay the Occidental Grand Papagayo on the beautiful coast of Costa Rica. The Occidental Grand Papgayo resort boasts such creatures, in addition to a beautifully designed luxury all inclusive resort. Near both lush rainforest and dormant volcanoes, this all inclusive resort is perfect for both the relaxed vacationers and the inspired adventurers, whichever suits your preference.


On Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast:


Located on the northern Pacific coastline of Costa Rica is the untamed natural beauty of spectacular bluffs over warm ocean waters below. The water is perfect for taking a soothing dip. One thing I hate is when I visit somewhere beautiful with a gorgeous beach but the water is too cold to get in. I try to work up the courage to brave the chilly water hoping I’ll “get used to it”. That dilemma will not happen at the Occidental Grand Papagayo resort. The water is waiting for you to enjoy its mild temperatures both day and night. At this location is the rich, unspoiled eco-diversity that dwells on the Occidental Grand Papgayo resort. The weather is even mild enough to allow a luxurious open-air lobby.


On the Pacific coast of Costa Rica you can expect sun and great surf. It is the most beautiful region of that country, hence it is also the most visited regions in the country. Interestingly enough, this is the least populated region of Costa Rica. You will only find a few small fishing villages here and there. Compared to other parts of Costa Rica, the weather is a little less humid here, making the Pacific North Coast home to tropical “dry forests” and their own unique species of monkeys, seabirds, and more. Further inland away from the coast, cattle ranches are starting to rapidly emerge with “Guanacaste cowboys”.


What Do Guests Like To Do Here?


At this Caribbean all inclusive resort, the inspired adventurers can embark on snorkeling, kayaking, scuba trips, and more. These adventuring visitors trek the forests, the fitness room, and wear copious amounts of sunscreen.
The relaxed vacationers can choose from a lazy, indulgent array of absolutely nothing, while simultaneously looking and feeling amazing. They, too, apply copious amounts of sunscreen. Both types of people inevitably end up meeting at some point at one of the two free-form pools to exchange stories and convince others of what they absolutely have to try.

After sunset, nights are usually capped at one of their three in-house restaurants, all which have the greatest compliment of word-of-mouth.
Obviously their all inclusive vacation package include all food, drinks, and tons of indoor and outdoor entertainment. No need to tip anyone! That’s included too.

Hawaiian Vacations Resorts: Ka’Anapali Ali’I

The Ka’anapali Ali’i is a fantastic resort that is also a “Value Plus” hotel, meaning you get more bang for your buck when you stay there. It is located on the Ka’anapali beach, one of Maui’s finest beaches, where white sands meet the warm, turquoise Pacific waters. And for golf enthusiasts, the Ka’anapali Ali’i resort is very close to the Royal Ka’anapali Golf Course, a championship caliber course. Check out the details of this resort for an amazing Hawaiian vacation.

About Ka’anapali Ali’i


Considered one of the most luxurious resorts in Maui, the suites in Ka’anapali Ali’i range from 1500 to 1900 square feet. They are decorated with a elegant tropical style with all the conveniences and amenities you’d expect from a luxury resort, including concierge, laundry services, and complimentary parking.


The Ka’anapali Ali’i resort has two outdoor pools on-site; a heated adult’s pool and a separate wading pool for the children. Recently constructed in 2009 was a million dollar upgrade to the pool area, including more space to lie out in the sun and a whirlpool spa.


Activities and Things to Do


As mentioned, Ka’anapali Ali’i is located very close to the Royal Ka’anapali Golf course, comprised of the two 18-hole courses, Ka’anapali North and Ka’anapali South. These championship courses were designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and Arthur Jack Snyder and are an incredible way to spend your Hawaiian vacation.


In addition, there are 4 tennis courts at the resort and a workout room, so you’re sure to stay active… if you want. You could also spend your time lounging by the pool with a drink.


If you want to experience an authentic Hawaiian vacation, you have to try the water sports. Ka’anapali Ali’i offers fishing, snorkeling, wind surfing, scuba diving, and sunfish sailing either complimentary or for an additional fee. You must feel the warm waves at this Maui resort to get the real vibe of what Hawaii living is all about.


Also, check out horseback riding, hula lessons, massage and facials, poolside BBQs, a spa, and sand sculpting.
This hotel does not have any all inclusive vacation packages, so you will have to bring your wallet for the extras. And there are no restaurants on-site, though there are some nearby. If you are a big foodie, this might not be the place for you. But otherwise, the Ka`anapali Ali’i is an affordable resort for Hawaiian vacations in Maui.
