Hello! My name is Esteban Sanchez and I am the First Club Manager at the Occidental Grand Papagayo in Costa Rica. I have been working for Occidental Vacation Club since 2012. I really enjoy making everybody feel the Pura vida’s lifestyle. The best part of this job is to see the smile of happiness on a face when our valued members have a memorable and pleasant experience with us. That is  priceless!

I love surfing good waves in my leisure time. Also, I am a Business Management student.

I truly appreciate the opportunity that Occidental Vacation Club has given to me to make new friends, know more about other cultures, and get such as  great experience.

I hope your next visit you come to Costa Rica to share some good vibes with us!

    Estaban is great. Other than his normal duties to make you feel comfortable, he goes beyond. During our recent stay, my wife developed a medical condition. He called for the Dr for us then when needed to get to the pharmacy, had a ride waiting to take us right away.

    I keep receiving remainders from the main office in California about not paying the maintenance fees for the past 3 years. must I remainding you that when joining the club
    in December 2010 the maintenance fee for the year 2011 and 2012 were included in the
    deal, and 10 weeks bonus certificate with maintenance fees credits, while visiting the Allegro Playacar, in April 23 rd., 2011, I had a discussion with the first club Manager, regarding the rebate of 15 % from one week stay at the resort, that would amount to 115$
    (due to our age over 65) this amount would be applied to the maintenance fee for the year
    2013 and the the rest of 160$ was paid at that time to the Club Manager with my American Express credit card. I think that it,s time to have my record straight and stop considering me as a delinquent. Very sad, Ferdinando

    Esteban, we are coming to Costa Rico in March. My wife Becky, and my daughter ad her family. I look forward to meet you. We’ve ever been to Costa Rico, but plan on staying at both clubs and then renting a car to explore the possibility of renting a property the winter of 2016. If you have ay information about that maybe we can discuss it went we come down.

    Which of the 2 resorts Occidental has in Costa Rico is more fancy.
