Secrets Papagayo: A Plush All-Inclusive

Secrets Papagayo allows guests to experience pampering in an exotic location, providing the best of both worlds.

In Secrets Papagayo, the center of attention is the ocean. Since the resort is built on a steep gully, the best panoramic bay views are available in the rooms at the top of the hills. However, it is also possible to appreciate the Pacific from almost every corner of the resort.

If by any chance the journey up and down the hills becomes too tiresome, there are shuttles going and coming from the beach and around the hotel. Simply jump into any of them to get where you need to go.

The main pool area is a great place to socialize, relax, or have fun. It is divided in two parts. The smaller pool boasts a swim-up bar, where you can get cocktails and snacks after a day of swimming, and the other one is the “activities” pool, where different events are planned for guests to keep themselves active and entertained, ranging from sports to bingo.

For utmost relaxation, stop by the on-site spa. The cozy room creates an atmosphere of intimacy as you get some me-time or escape with your partner to a pampering massage session. Let the whirlpools in the bathtubs release all the stress from your muscles, then sit in the sauna to cleanse your skin and unwind.

If you want to enjoy the outdoors, the hotel also has plenty for you. The beach at the bay is surrounded by wild forest, and it has a picturesque white sand with darker patches that sets it apart from other locations. Palm trees and mangroves grow around it, providing shade and privacy. The calm, lake-like waters of Papagayo Gulf are ideal for several activities offered by the resort.

Kayak, stand up paddle boarding, snorkeling and fishing are only examples. Keep your eyes open, you might even spot seahorses, turtles, or colorful fish during these adventures.

In the dry tropical forest around, nature abounds as well. Go hiking or take a canopy tour to explore the trees and all their inhabitants. Spot lizards, monkeys, boas, coatis, and birds as they roam around the property. Snap photos of these visitors and grow a collection of all the animals you’ve seen.

Truly, whether you want to stay indoors or see the world outside, Secrets Papagayo gives you the chance to enjoy both without stress.

Varied Food Scene at the Resort

Since the hotel is all-inclusive, you don’t have to worry about reaching for your wallet at every meal. However, one of the advantages of Secrets Papagayo is its meal variety. With seven different restaurants and cafés, your stay at the resort won’t lack in options.

Offering healthy snacks and drinks, Aqua is open for all 3 meals of the day. Make sure to try their excellent Ceviche for lunch and have one of their smoothies to fight the afternoon heat. Barefoot Grill, on the other hand, is open for lunch and early dinners with a range of carefully-selected cuts.

For something a little different, both Coco Café and the Market Café have your back. Coco provides premium coffee and snacks all day, whereas Market is open at different times of the day for all three meals or quick bites.

At night, head to Himitsu or Portofino for dinner. Himitsu offers a fusion of Asian cuisines while Portofino provides Italian dishes in a more formal, romantic setting. If you want to eat by the beach, the seaside grill is open for all three meals of the day as well. Enjoy a delicious dish in an open space, admiring the beautiful beach and its attractions.

Certainly, Secrets Papagayo is a great resort for those who want to escape from the outside world, get pampered, and marvel at expansive ocean views. With a selection of gourmet food and dun daily activities, contact us to start planning your Costa Rica vacation now.
