Occidental Papagayo Pool and other questions

We are usually pool people when we go to adults only all inclusive resorts. Read someplace that the pool is in bad shape, but looking for updated information about this. How is it? From pictures it does look small, so would also like to know if the towel game of reserving chairs is a problem here.

We've been to many AOAI resorts (Couples, Jewel, Secrets, El Dorado, etc) and wonder how this compares to them.

Have you checked the reviews? If you check them on TA, there are close to 4000 reviews of this hotel. You can click on the reviews that mention beach towels first, for ex., to filter the ones you want highlighted first. You will see that some travellers commented on the need to get up before 7 am to get a spot (https://www.tripadvisor.ca/ShowUserReviews-g635535-d501072-r351823240-Occidental_Papagayo_Adults_only-Gulf_of_Papagayo_Province_of_Guanacaste.html#CHECK_RATES_CONT ) or quite a few recent reviews - mention the general lack of beach towels (e.g., https:/…CHECK_RATES_CONT , as well as many others from 2017).
