A Beautiful Setting...the Staff made it Extra Special

Ottawa, Canada

We were fortunate to enjoy a relaxing two weeks at this gorgeous resort. The views are spectacular and the property was cared for with pride by the wonderful staff. We loved our room...tucked away up high on the property and very private...we liked that we could choose to get some good exercise on the climb up to it or if it was too hot we could take a shuttle, which run continuously and will bring you anywhere on the property. (JJ the driver was so much fun...always joking and making us laugh... a prince of a man!) As I said, all the staff were outstanding and made us feel very welcome and cared for. The Entertainment team was fantastic...Christian and his group...our fav gals, Katherine and Merori who were always quick with a smile and along with Carlos could teach you any latin dance with style! Karla who took care of us in Yoga , Michael was a darling too. Our favourite place to hang out was at the spa pool (quiet) the Aqua Restaurant with the great team, William, Nellie, Faviola, Elena and Diago...thank you...the food was so delicious! Also to Jennifer and Aron who kept us hydrated :) All the restaurants were great...Portofino, thanks to Alexander and Iris...Himitsu...thanks to Leonardis and also Gary at the main bar. A special shout out to the gals in the coffee shop...Maria, Jennifer and Cynthia, not only did they make great coffee but were always smiling and friendly. So...as we said in the title...a very beautiful place with delicious food and very comfortable rooms and beds, spectacular views and we loved swimming in the ocean and walking on the beach. Great shows at night and live music and fun organized by a top notch Entertainment team. We will be back next year...Pura Vida! Colleen and Michael

What can I say...Excelente..Pura Vida

Mobile, Alabama

This was a surprise b'day trip for hubby. Didn't know what to expect other than reading other reviews. This place is AMAZING. Upon arrival our room was decorated with a b'day banner and the inside above the bed..balloons. The bungalow style room was perfect. We loved it. The room had everything we could think of and if not...room service. But if you could only change the bathroom..a lil privacy for 'adult business'..lol The rain shower overhead and the window in the shower..simply AWESOME We were located a few feet from The Aqua..excellent food Transportation..always quick and professional. And that JJ, he has a beautiful spirit. He is truly an asset to Secrets Room service; we never went out for breakfast, Anthony was always on time and breakfast in bed, on the balcony, on the couch was simply perfect. Housekeeping always on point and I can't remember her name Every meal..EVERY meal whether at the bar or restaurant was always unique to us. And a GREAT SHOUT OUT to Allison who introduced me to the green howler..I could have had that alllllllll day and thanks to her she also found Ranch dressing for hubby..it's the small things. Portofino...GREAT FOOD..ohhh the lamb Himitsu...WONDERFUL entertainment and the food...delish The giftshop, the prices...a bit much. A bit wayyyy too much. $10 for a keyring...really $120 for a simply swimsuit..c'mon now Make sure if you're in search of souvenirs, go into town..Coco Beach Every person we encountered, guest and/or staff all friendly. Everyone became a friend Some brands you may want to visit another location, but not this one. I would definitely return to this EXACT location. The only sad part...leaving Secrets Papagayo...you owe us ABSOLUTELY NOTHING Pura Vida
