This is a stunning property! We were blown away by the beauty of the grounds and the wildlife at Secrets Papagayo. The views from this property will take your breath away. You must do the sunset hike to the viewpoint! If the views aren't enough, the wildlife is a pretty cool add on! From the lizards walking across the road...

Awesome view from any room! All inclusive is the best part of this stay! 24 hour room service as well! There are fun activities planned for each...

Pros: Beautiful resort with stunning views Very clean and the resort staff were very nice Great location and about 20 minutes from Coco Beach Easy access to the beach (sand is so soft) Drinks were great Cons: It's a bit boring and there's no music at the main pool. We're in our late 30's and would've like a little more...

I was very disappointed in Secrets Papagayo Costa Rica. I am disabled and it is very hard to climb stairs and walk. The terrain was not equipped for people with disabilities. The beaches were black due to burning sugar cane. Not exactly the picturesque white sandy beaches.

We just returned from our stay at Secrets, and loved it. They take great care of you during your stay. Every employee is friendly and helpful, constantly asking if they can be of service. The rooms are comfortable and large, although some rooms are a long way from the central area. They provide a shuttle service which is efficient, but...

This resort was amazing. Every detail was tended to, from breakfast in bed to massages, etc. You can't go wrong staying in Costa Rica, but you definitely can't go with at this Secrets Resort. Miguel Alcalde from Unlimited Sharing was my personal agent, and he made everything a breeze.
