never again
Would not choose to stay here again. I was especially disappointed with the check in process at Secrets Papagayo. We just travelled up from the Westin Playa Conchal which was super efficient whereas when we got to the property gate, the gentleman here could not even find my name though the one at the main lobby could. In addition, we waited a while to be taken to the Preferred Club where we were checked in by Angelica. She was not friendly or seemed at all interested in us. We then waited 25mins for a shuttle to be taken to our room. After 10mins of waiting my husband asked her how long it would be- she said she didn't know. In this timeframe, two other shuttles picked up people from outside. For us to have booked a Preferred Club room, there is nothing that feels "preferred". The price currently does not seem justified based on the service received. In addition, we met Yalmar with the VIP team on the 2nd day and he took my husband's phone number down and said he would What's App him so we could get in touch with any issues and we never heard from him again. Also, the housekeeping team was really sloppy. Usually, they would tidy up toiletries, etc- I returned to see toiletries in the same mess I left them in. They also took our dirty towels but never gave us clean ones until I called reception. Also, we used up the tissues in the tissue box and I don't think they even looked to see if it needed refilling as it wasn't refilled for the rest of our stay.

Friendliest People, Worst food
The people in Costa Rica and staff at Secrets Papagayo are so friendly and wonderful. The food at the resort was barely edible. It seemed like everything was just microwaved frozen food. The resort is very quiet and pretty, but seems like they are behind on some upkeep. The pool/beach furniture was run down and things like porch railings needed attention. We rented a car one day just so we could drive somewhere else to eat! Costa Rican food is so good, I wish they would just serve that!!

Everything was nice. The check in process was annoying went from one building to another and then back and then had to go to another place to schedule covid test. The food was good but nothing we ate was out of this world.

6/10 Good

I am a big fan of Secrets Resorts having been to others in the Caribbean but this one was not up to their normal standard. The Staff were great but the resort felt crowded as though they had tried to fit all their usual facilities into a much smaller space. For example there were two bars within 100 feet of each other and in the evening one would have music but there were only a few chairs so it was impossible to sit and listen. The resort also felt neglected as many of the pool umbrellas were damaged and not working, not like Secrets at all. Also the food choices seemed very limited compared to other Secrets resorts.

Not only was the hotel beautiful, so many different options for food activities everyday and night but most of all the staff was impeccable . Every single person was so kind and pleasant ! I would go back and recommend anyone who wants to go to Costa Rica to stay here.
