Friendliest People, Worst food
The people in Costa Rica and staff at Secrets Papagayo are so friendly and wonderful. The food at the resort was barely edible. It seemed like everything was just microwaved frozen food. The resort is very quiet and pretty, but seems like they are behind on some upkeep. The pool/beach furniture was run down and things like porch railings needed attention. We rented a car one day just so we could drive somewhere else to eat! Costa Rican food is so good, I wish they would just serve that!!

Great Adults only resort close to Liberia Airport
Very clean resort with excellent service!!! Ari and the whole entertainment staff go above and beyond to get you involved and enjoy in the fun. During the day the Pool bar is the main hub of laughter. Henry & Eduardo are the best mixologists, also Victor and the rest of the guys are great. Hugo provides excellent food and drink chair service. Night time lounge bar features William, always on point!!!

6/10 Good

If you’ve been to a Secrets resort before this place will be a let down. The food was ok at best and the Secrets model seemed to be jammed in to a space too small to fit it all. That being said it’s a beautiful property in a beautiful setting with comfortable rooms that have great view……… I still wouldn’t return as it wasn’t worth the money.

8/10 Very good

Pool Lounge chairs need to be replaced as the material is to stretched and worn leaving one to sink into the stretched dip making it very uncomfortable. Was not enough chairs from 10-3. Property needs spraying - was eaten alive by no-see-um flies pretty bad. Was not allowed to use kayaks and paddleboards in the morning due to some wind even when i said i was experienced and will stay in the bay close to shore out of the wind. Otherwise, service was great. Had trouble understanding heavy accents tho. Food was good and grounds were beautiful. Was not offered daily bottle of sparkling wine or room upgrade. Staff customer service was excellent. Property way overpriced.

8/10 Very good

It is very quiet…. If you are looking for a peaceful stay then this is it. Not a lot of activities or music. Just sun and relaxation. Good options very limited and not a lot of variety. Simple compared to other 4/5 star resorts I have been too. It was not what I expected to be honest. It is very nicely kept and clean but too peaceful for my liking

8/10 Very good

The resort was the right size for us, dining options were just right. The entertainment staff was fantastic and inredibley talented - the evening shows for amazing. All the staff were very helpful and accommodating. Our room was exactly as expected and a beautiful view. A few minor complaints - there were not enough pool chairs around either pool. If you weren't out at 6am you'd be lucky to get one. Also - as an all inclusive - if you're having a big Valentine's Day dinner - you shouldn't be upselling it for an extra fee. You can certainly upsell private dining on the beach or special bottles of wine, but the push for the valentine's dinner was unwelcome. Lastly - the push to sell memberships in their club (which isn't really a value) as soon as you get there was unncessary.

The Staff was awesome . They remembered your name and always tried to keep you happy. The pool area could have more chairs. People would fight over unoccupied chairs .
