    Awesome resort!

    Had a fantastic honeymoon! Excellent customer service and a beautiful setup in Papagayos Bay. Only a 25 minute drive from airport.

    Costa Rica

    Carlos out poolside bartender was outstanding. He went above and beyond to accommodate us. William out night time bartender was very helpful and attentive to our group. The staff all the way around was great. The only thing that I didn’t like about the resort was waiting on transportation to take you everywhere but that is Costa Rica in the forest.

    A Must Stay

    Everything was exceptional from the time you step out the transportation van you’re greeted with a cold towel to cool off and a glass of champagne. The resort is beautiful and very secure. Guard at the entrance checking to ensure that no one gets through without a reservation. Food was excellent. I ate at 4 of the 7 or 8 options and all were 10/10. Activities were fun and the customer service is unbelievably top notch. Even the shuttle drivers are so nice. I took full advantage of the shuttle service bc the resort is huge so it was a necessary and appreciated service. By the end of my stay, the drivers knew me by first name and knew exactly where my little bungalow suite was located. I plan to take my son the next time I go back and will stay at Secrets again. It’s a must stay for sure!!! Worth every dollar.

    Compared to other all inclusives this location was underwhelming. Needed to catch a shuttle to move around, nothing was with walking distance, food was OK, none of the food locations stood out. No nightly entertainment. It was widely known that scorpions, lizards and crabs would come through bathroom drainage so a covering would have been appreciated to keep them out. Wouldn’t return to that location.
