My fiancé and I came to this resort to get married and spend our honeymoon there. It was amazing! The resort itself felt very secluded and was very tropical. The staff went above and beyond! Katherine was the best! Can’t wait to go back for our anniversary!

Cynthia Morel-Pence was an outstanding yoga teacher adding icing to the cake to an already heavenly vacation at Secret’s Papagayo. The Events team was beyond helpful, especially Nelson. Nelson helped us with activities and was very responsive, accessible and accommodating.I hope to return to Costa Rica and Secret’s again and would highly recommend this slice of heaven to anyone in search of an exceptional get away! Pura Vida! ❤️

We just returned from our seventh trip to Costa Rica. The other 6 times we stayed at a different resort. This was our first, but not last, trip to Secrets Papagayo! The resort was lush and beautifully kept. The views were spectacular. Secrets was very quiet but staffed by the most genuinely nice people! The food was delicious, hot and NOT mass produced! We are already planning to go back next year with friends!

My husband and I came to this resort soon after getting married and had a great experience! We really enjoyed how secluded all of the rooms where, but also how close everything still was. The food was really great, and we loved being close to the beach. The staff was amazing and really helped us to have a wonderful experience. We also really loved all of the entertainment options and the incredible entertainment staff! We made bracelets, went on a beautiful hike, went paddleboarding and kayaking, played pool games, went to the evening shows, etc. The entertainment staff was SO fun and we loved getting to know them and spending time with them. The shows were INCREDIBLE and we really enjoyed watching them. Our favorite show was the Beatles show, but all of them were great. Shout out to Neigar, Alexca, Daniel, Cati and all the other entertainment staff for being awesome and helping us to have a wonderful trip. My only complaint is that there were not many Costa Rican food options at the resort.

I recently had a 7 night stay at this beautiful all inclusive resort!!! The service we received was made phenomenal by Nelson with the activities team. He showed us around, offered unlimited help, answered all our questions & took us on a kayak tour that was breathtaking!! Nelson was so customer service focused & very professional!!! This resort is Beautiful with stunning views, gorgeous private large rooms, great food, top notch spa (we had 2 massages and a facial!!). I would recommend this resort to everyone. So much to do or do nothing at the quiet pool and beach. I am so thankful everyone was so attentive to us!! Nelson should be recognized fir his outstanding service and professional customer attention!! Thank you Secrets Papagayo ♥️
