Secrets Papagayo: A Plush All-Inclusive

Secrets Papagayo allows guests to experience pampering in a tropical beach location. In order to do this, the hotel provides an all-inclusive beach vacation with ocean views to those who want to kick back and relax.

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. It is also possible to appreciate the Pacific from almost every corner of the resort.

With the all-inclusive meal plan, your meals and drinks (with the exception of some premium alcohol) are included in the rate. This allows you to actually enjoy the resort without taking your wallet out several times a day.

Since Secrets is located on a hill, the property’s roads and pathways go up and down with the landscape. To keep you properly pampered, there are shuttles that can take you from one side to the other of the hotel. Simply call the front desk to ask for transport!

Relaxation & Exercise at the Beach

As an all-inclusive resort, Secrets Papagayo has a variety of on-site facilities you can access to reach the utmost level of relaxation. There are also several on-site activities to get you moving!

Stop by the on-site spa for a massage or treatment. 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.

The hotel also provides a variety of entertainment you can access. Scheduled activities include live music sessions, nighttime shows, water aerobics, karaoke, cooking lessons, and yoga classes. Make sure to check what’s available during the week!

If you want to enjoy the outdoors, the hotel also has plenty for you. The beach at the bay is surrounded by wild dry forest, and it has 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.

Take full advantage of your stay with access to snorkeling gear, kayaks, and stand-up paddleboards. Keep your eyes open, you might even spot seahorses, turtles, or colorful fish during these adventures.

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

As an all-inclusive hotel, another advantage of Secrets Papagayo is its food variety. With seven different restaurants and cafés, your stay at the resort won’t lack 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.

Poolside Entertainment

Secrets’ main pool area is a great place to socialize, relax, or have fun. It is divided into two sections. The smaller pool boasts a swim-up bar, where you can get cocktails and snacks after a day of swimming.

The other one is the “activities” pool, where different events are planned for guests to keep themselves active and entertained. Activities range from sports to bingo. If you prefer, lounge poolside on one of the chairs while you sunbathe. Both pools are open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Admire Guanacaste’s Dry Forest

Nature abounds at Secrets Papagayo. The dry forest that surrounds the property is full of opportunities to admire Guanacaste’s flora and fauna.

Go hiking or book 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.
