Secrets Papagayo Costa Rica - Adults only - All Inclusive, Papagayo
We wanted to love this place but really just could not. The facility is fine (but dated). The service was fine (but forced). And the vibe is not “luxury” in any sense of the word. I’d steer clear.

All-inclusive luxury in paradise
My wife and I enjoyed 4 perfect days & 3 perfect nights at Secrets Papagayo. The resort is built into the side of a hill overlooking the bay, which takes full advantage of the area’s natural beauty. Be sure to visit during “rainy season” - everything is lush and colorful (we were told that the rest of the year is brown and dried out). The staff was super helpful and friendly. Wonderful restaurants - our favorites were the buffet breakfast at Market Cafe and dinner at Himatsu (sushi), Aqua, and Seaside Grill (steak). Highly recommend you upgrade for the Preferred Club - you will appreciate the additional perks and get your money’s worth. The beaches leave a lot to be desired, but the pools are spectacular. There is so much to do there, or do nothing at all! We rented jet skis from Alex on the Beach and had a blast. We also enjoyed a couples massage in the Spa and were very happy with that. We would gladly return again.

No Hot Water
My husband and I just returned from our stay here (7/5-7/9). At first arrival, the resort looked was all downhill from there. Instead of being able to check in and then go to our room we were talked into attending a "presentation breakfast". I came here to relax, not to wake up early or make any financial decisions, especially after a day of traveling. We decided to stop off and grab a bite to eat before heading up to our room. Lunch was ok, the selection was mediocre, nothing special and nothing of luxury status. The rooms are ok, nice aroma, clean but again nothing of luxury status. The is a 'spa-like" shower with a sitting bench. I was looking forward to taking a shower until I discovered there was NO HOT WATER!!! I was quickly annoyed. No hot water for a "luxury resort"? Fortunately, we had friends staying at the resort as well so I was able to use their shower. Scurrying through the resort in a robe and slippers in the dark was not very fun. Day three let us try this shower thing again...STILL NO HOT WATER. This time when we called to complain, they sent someone to look at it and he told me I had to wait until the room next door completed their shower, THEN wait one hour and then I could take a shower and there SHOULD be hot water. Since the attendant was very nice and despite having to meet friends for dinner. I waited and there was STILL NO HOT WATER. This time when I called the front desk, I was again told they would send someone out but never did.

Very Good8.0
Great place but the food needs work
Great accommodation and location. The staff was excellent extremely courteous and helpful. The food needs some work pretty sure I acquired some type Illness from the food which kept me from enjoying the all inclusive drinks. Had a reservation at the hibachi restaurant and the teppanyaki station and it was the furthest thing from teppanyaki I have ever had
