Tips From a Travel Agent

  • Should your wedding party decide to leave the resort, the Marina Papagayo is nearby which features scenic walkways and world-class sports fishing.

  • The beach sits on black volcanic sand, and the Secrets Papagayo wedding ceremony venues here take advantage of that uniqueness for their intimate wedding ceremony locations.

  • The resort is perfect for smaller sized wedding groups, featuring an expansive layout with a smaller amount of rooms available overall, creating a boutique hotel atmosphere for your destination wedding.

Food could be a little tastier but considering it is free and all you can eat, it is really god. Drinks are great.” – Clement F. 5/20

“What a beautiful resort! Quiet and intimate, perfect for romance and peace. The staff are all so friendly and fun, and make an effort to remember you! My husband and I had our wedding ceremony here, Natalia and Daniella made it perfect. They really went the extra mile to make sure my husband and I had the perfect stay. Priscilla took amazing photos of us on our wedding day, I very highly recommend having your ceremony at Secrets! The food was so amazing here, we couldn’t wait until each next meal. Our suite was perfect and comfortable and the little extra touches of the housekeepers were appreciated! private jet tub on the deck where you can listen to the ocean waves below was so nice. Would give it 10 out of 5 if I could! Definitely coming back one day.” – Morganna A. 3/20

“Best customer service, beautiful location, great food, very friendly staff, we would return in a heart-beat! Great evening shows, planned excursions or get 24 hour room service. All fabulous. Got the best massage ever from Juan Carlos!” – Tammy A. 1/19

“It was the first time in Costa Rica. I am glad I chose this resort. We were greeted with smiles and pleasantries. While waiting for our rooms to become ready (We arrived 2 hours early) we were offered and finger sandwiches, mini desserts, and champagne while we hung out in the garden. The resort is so huge that there are shuttles used to transport patrons to their rooms or any other part of the resort. We were greeted by Eli, a shuttle driver with a huge smile and always happy demeanour. Our room was phenomenal! The room contained a minibar with an assortment of colas, local beer and water. There was a huge screen television, a beautiful shower with a tiled bench, the room also has a tablet to allow you to lookup information about the resort, restaurants, activities for the day and room service. Each room comes with a beautiful porch that faces the clear, blue bay, which allows you to wake up with the sunrise. I highly enjoyed the entertainment crew. A big shout out to Beverly, Mereri, Katherine, Maria and Carlos of the entertainment for making the activities fun and enjoyable. With an all Inclusive resort like this, why would you want to stay anywhere else in Guanacaste?” – Brit T. 1/19

“Seriously the best all inclusive resort ever. We did our wedding here and it was absolutely perfect. The food was absolutely perfect and is the definition of of fine dining. The rooms are so nice no matter the size of room you get. The drinks were plenty strong and they didn’t cheap out on the amount of alcohol they put in the drinks. 10/10 for sure….” – 1/18
