Amazing vacation

raelashae on Nov 23, 2021

Visited this resort early November for a family vacation. Very nice facilities. Resort staff very attentive and accommodating. The available restaurants had really good food. The views are beautiful and very picturesque. A lot of Instagram photo photo opportunities. I am very big on room cleanliness and the rooms were immaculate. The only downside is the pools and bars close early so you don’t have the luxury of lounging after sundown.

Pura Vida!

We’ve been members since 2013 and been to many resorts since then with 3 being Secrets resorts. So far, Secrets Papagayo has been the best one out of all of them – however there were some shortcomings. Resort – 4.5 Stars Beautiful! Well maintained gardens and a great location. The biggest problem, it’s showing lots of wear and tear. The main pool tiles are chipped and are cutting people’s feet (saw 3 in one day). The tiles around the pools are very slippery and there are some broken tiles near the bars. There’s painting needed and some basic maintenance. The gas / grey water smell near the Barefoot Bar needs to be addressed. The other issue is the hilliness of the resort. It’s extreme. However, you can call for a shuttle to take you anywhere you wish in a matter of minutes. Entertainment was subpar. They try their best, but it wasn’t nightly. All music and entertainment shut down by 11 pm which incudes all bars. Room – 4 Stars We were in room 106. It’s one of the best rooms at the resort because of it’s proximity near the pools and restaurants. You can easily walk there in minutes and the duplex bungalow is ocean front. The problem with our room was it’s need for a renovation. The mattress was sagging and squeaked. The couch and chairs were not comfortable at all and the most annoying thing was the cleaning. Maid service came every day but did a very poor job of it with smeared mirrors (looked like they used a wet towel) and the floor always being dirty. Our mini fridge wasn’t refreshed every day and we had to call many times to get bottled water. The shower, however, was fantastic with a rain head and window with a view of the bay. Food / Alcohol – 4 Stars We’ve travelled all over the world and been to many resorts and the food at Secrets Papagayo was excellent. We had a few meals that were less stellar but overall, great selection and good quality. One tip though – if you do stay for more than 7 days, the food can get boring and repetitive. Take a trip into Coco Beach for lunch or supper as a change. Drinks – They were good. I do not believe any alcohol was “watered down.” The main booze is regular premiums and nothing special. The Preferred Club has better offerings. Pools / Beach – 3 Stars The pools are okay. The main pools have a lot of action with very loud music for most of the day and there’s a definite lack of loungers and umbrellas. You need to “save” your chairs early in the morning to get one. There’s a quiet pool near the spa and it’s nice but you don’t get the drink service like you do at the main pools. The beach is underwhelming at best. It’s a black sand beach and it leaves you pretty dirty. We like to snorkel, and this beach / bay is not suitable for it due to the abundance of sea urchins. Service / Employees Secrets Resort Employees – 5 Stars for all of them. This resort had the best service out of all of the resorts we’ve been to. The ones who stood out for us were Howard, our poolside server, Henry, another poolside server, Alba, Hostess at Market Café and Youhuni (sorry if that’s spelt wrong), hostess at the Seaside Grill. UVC Employees – Adriana and Mariam were fantastic and always welcoming and happy to help. We understand their jobs are to get new members to sign on and to get old members like us to upgrade. They weren’t pushy at all and seemed very genuine. These ladies get a 5 Star for just being nice and respectable. The only person on the resort who gets NO Stars is Caroline, the UVC sales manager (if that’s true). She’s British and was the rudest and most condescending person we met. She came in with the hard sell to try and get us and our friends to upgrade, basically telling us “you must have money, or you wouldn’t be here right now.” When she didn’t get our money – she was completely standoffish with us for the rest of the trip. We even noticed that our service started to drop off. Tip to UVC – don’t hire a person like that to do the closing on deals. We would have upgraded if it wasn’t for her pushy rudeness. Overall – the resort was great. You won’t regret booking at Secrets Papagayo and enjoying Costa Rica. Pura Vida!
