10/10 Exceptional

Staff was friendly and great. Their shuttle system and phone system is so easy to use. The resort is hilly and beautiful. Our private plunge pool really made our stay extra special. The gift shop at the hotel is very expensive and does not have common items like Advil, so make sure you bring those type things from home. It was an amazing place for a honeymoon. The spa was incredible and they have one pool that is just for relaxation on one side of the resort.

4/10 Fair

Not what we expected from a 5 star hotel. Except for the beautiful setting on the beach everything else is a miss. Few examples: room smell of mold (we changed a room but even next one had mold), the claim there are 5 restaurants is highly misleading as the hotel closes restaurants and bars for events(weddings), service along pool is sketchy, pool bars are closed early, except for Italian restaurant food is below average, yoga instructor didn’t show up one day, you depend on rides to your room and in the evening you can wait a long time to get from the dinning area to your room, you need to ask for basic stuff like turndown service which should be done implicitly if the hotel really wanted to service its guests. We came to this hotel after staying at 4 other 5 star properties in Costa Rica during our 2 week trip and all of them were very good so this is why we were so disappointed given it was at a higher price point as well.

We absolutely loved staying at Secrets Papagayo for our honeymoon. It was beautiful, clean, full of fun activities and the staff was incredible. We will definitely be back, as this is an excellent all inclusive to stay at.
