My boyfriend and I decided to take a short vacation. We booked through Cheap Carribean, and originally had gotten our rooms at the Now Amber but were moved to the Secrets part of the resort. I couldnt have been happier with this change. It was, first of all, adults only. As a young couple not wanting to hear about kids for a long time, this was perfect. The room was incredible, we had the garden view but we still had our view to the ocean. We also paid a little extra for the preferred luxury or whatever its called. Did i mention the room? Holy cow. Enormous, the size of his apartment, a gorgeous layout and a comfortable bed. Jacuzzi on our terrace, mini bar with jack daniels, bacardi rum, and finlandia as well as cokes and water and pringles and m&ms. they greeted us with champagne, and some moist towels to freshen up (i really didnt see the point of the towel) they took care of our bags, walked us down to the secrets preferred lobby. While I handled paperwork and logistics, my boyfriend ate and had some drinks. We were introduced to the buttons and gadgets of the room and headed straight to the pool. Drinks were great, food is great, restaurants are fantastic, the resort is so calm and relaxing and beautiful. I will definitely come back to this resort.

The tamarindo staff, although carne asada tacos are not on the menu they made it happen for my man, Thank you! (they do have live mariachi music so if you dont like this kind of vibe then you are better off elsewhere)
OH AND THE BREAKFAST my goodness it was fantastic DELICIOUS. PLEASE! If you see american food.. and then mexican food.. try the mexican food! Sopes... mexican beef in juice... chilaquiles.... yum tastes just like mommas.
I cant remember the names of our servers but they did great!
This resort was amazing. I could not have had a better choice of resort.
The hospitality, service, incredible. Everyone really takes the time to take care of you, and if you didnt have a great experience, then you should really reconsider your approach on things.
