Best service ever. The staff was amazing. You do not feel like you are on a resort at all. Completely secluded but the option for activities. It was so hard leaving! @We highly recommend this property!

Amazing honeymoon!

From the moment we arrived Secrets Papagayo was so welcoming. We arrived about 2 hours early and they let us check in early and even complimentary upgraded us to a room with a dipping pool on the balcony! The staff was great and plenty of food options. Drinks were strong (not watered down like most all inclusives)

Wonderful Place to Spend a Week

We arrived at Secrets Papagayo Costa Rica on May 4 and stayed until May 11 and I cannot imagine a better place to spend a week. Our room was fantastic (Preferred Club Ocean Front King - Room 236). We had an amazing view from our porch and it was a relatively short walk to the main pool area and most of the restaurants. The staff at the resort is as good as I have experienced. The van drivers (JJ, Eli & Crew) were awesome. The Bartenders (Henry & Minor and others) were great. From the minute you arrive these folks learn your name and call you by name during your stay. The food was fantastic. The breakfast buffet at the Market Place Cafe was always good with a good selection of foods to choose from (best bacon I have had in quite a while). Every morning there was a huge selection of fresh fruits and pastries. We very much enjoyed the Italian and Japanese restaurants. The Pad Thai at the Japanese restaurant is fantastic. Alex on the beach (Sebastian by the steps to the beach) helped us book a fishing trip with Captain Carlos which resulted in quite a haul of Mahi and Red Snapper. We brought the fish back to the resort and the Chefs at the Seaside Grille prepared it for us that night. This was truly sea to table. The wildlife on property is abundant as there are Howler monkeys, many types of beautiful birds, skunks, white squirrels and Iguanas. Snorkeling was better than I expected by the rocks on the left side as you face the water. We saw many tropical, blowfish, a snowflake eel and an octopus. We took a afternoon trip to Playa Del Coco and had a nice time walking around this small town. There many activities at the resort each day including nature hikes, kayaking, yoga and other scheduled events. This was a fantastic week and I hated to leave the resort and Costa Rica. Pura Vida!!!
