“Enjoyable time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Me and my wife have stayed at Secrets Papagayo for the opening. We arrive the 20th of November and left on November 25th.We have stayed in a bungalows suite ocean front which is a great room with an amazing view, all facilities in the room and in the resort are new, staff of the Resort is what really make the difference, everybody is really nice and welcoming. Sea side grill restaurant is incredible but also the Italian and Asian are really good. Room service 24 hours a day is fast and never took more then 25 minutes in deliver. It was the first time we stayed in a hotel which is opening I ensure you this will not be the last. Also it was first time in traveling in an all inclusive resort and the experience was fantastic. We will try to come back next year.

My wife and I arrived here last Saturday and have loved the surroundings , staff, and facilities .
Secrets took over this resort from Hilton and had done an amazing job renovating the rooms and facilities.
Everything is shiny and new...they only opened their doors last Friday !
The staff are so polite and the level of service here is top shelf.
Their are several concierges around the property always asking what they can do for you.
The food has been excellent with a great variety.
Francisco and Kevin have been so nice and the water sports team on the beach are so helpful.
Overall, very impressed especially since this resort has just reopened .
The resort is a 20 minute drive from the airport in Liberia .
The manager at himitsu , Javier rosales and our waiter fernando were fantastic....
Be prepared to wait at immigration in the airport ... We arrived with 5 other aircraft and it took an hour and a half to get through the line. Make sure you have a bottle of water with you.
Well worth it though . I will give another short recap once our week is done.

Stayed November 2015, traveled as a couple
