The staff are absolutely lovely. They are this resorts greatest asset. This was our first visit to a Secrets resort and I would have liked to have known this information before I booked so I am sharing it with others and hope it will help the resort to up its game a bit. I would have given 3.5 stars if...

My husband and I visited this resort in January and loved every minute of it! We weren't sure where we wanted to go for our Honeymoon so we reached out to Beach Bum Vacations for some help and advice on the best places to go! Beach Bum Justin was on point when he recommended this resort; having been there himself...

During the next two weeks Randall was...

From the moment we arrived, until we departed 5 days later, I felt "At Home". The staff was OUTSTANDING....genuinely kind, caring, wanting you to experience Costa Rica to the fullest!! Grounds and facilities were meticulously tended. Food was delicious...always something new to try...several bars and top-notch restaurants to select from. Can't wait to go back!

We just got back from this hotel last week and I couldn't be happier or more relaxed! The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. I am not a fan of big faceless hotel buildings so the two bedroom bungalows set into tropical gardens were perfect for us (side note: if you have trouble walking this might not be the place...

The resort is located along the hills surrounding a beautiful little cove with black volcanic sands. The walk from one side of the resort to the other is great if you're looking for a little relaxed exercise while vacationing (very hilly), but they do have shuttles that drive around the resort to take you where you need to go if...

Had to switch rooms due to golf cart path noise the first night but after that the accomadations were spectacular! Employees were aweseome. Especially Melody and Dayton. My boyfriend and I had nothing bad to say about our stay. The Italian restaurant could use a new chef but overall the food was pretty good...especially breakfast.
