    Intro to Costa Rica

    If you have never been to Costa Rica, good intro, with helpful staff, clean rooms, and social environment. All inclusive is a plus to avoid trying to find places to eat when you are unfamiliar with your surrounding. Accessible, excursion and private tours on site.

    Loved the resort and the all-inclusive option. Staff were very helpful and courteous. Our room was located on a hill and I just wish the shuttle was more available in a timely fashion. Other than that, beautiful resort that I would return to.

    We booked an ocean view room and as preferred guest, however, it was really not even a full partial view of the ocean since the view was blocked by trees. My room unit stands alone uphill which I found it was cute and unique. Room is smaller than other resort I have been to with same price. Transportation was provided by the resort’s van but you should really just take a walk during daytime to enjoy the beautiful landscape and scenery. Our favorite restaurant was Seaside grill. The food there was overall better than other ones including breakfast. We stayed from Friday night to Tuesday and it was not too crowded, just enough amount of people to enjoy ourselves. This resort is a perfect choice if you would like to just enjoy and chill at the beach/pool. If you are interested in jetski, book with the guys and his crew at the beach. They were super nice and would give you a better deal than other companies inside the resort. They would take you to go snorkeling and see the monkeys.

    I will say that the staff are amazing and do whatever they can to make you feel relaxed on vacation. My number one compliment has to do with the operations of the facility especially because of the "Sercets" name and the amount of money that we pay to stay at the resort. The two operation issues that I noticed that were a continuing issue were the shuttle available and promptness as well as the service at the Pan-Asia restaurant. Regarding the shuttle - you need to call down to get a ride but the ride may not show up for 30 mins and you are waiting outside because you don't want to miss it because you don't know when the next one is coming. This happened many times and to many other people that I spoke too on the resort. And, one night we decided to not go to the Italian restaurant (which is the best one) we tried the Pan-Asia one. There were only 4-5 tables there at the time (one table was a large one but still) we did not get our appetizer for an hour and when it came it was cold so it had to be sent back. Once we were done with the app - we thought "oh, it has been so long and we had to send it back so our main order should be ready by now" and it was not - not even close to coming out so we had to leave to go to another restaurant to get an order in before it closed. The other issue was the pool bar was closed for some reason which is a plus at a resort-like this so that was really disappointing. Overall, the people and weather were amazing.

    The food choices and bar services were not great for a typical Secrets resort.

    We arrived at the main lobby. We were told we had to take a shuttle to the vip check in. We did and checked in, then we were told we had to take the shuttle back up to main lobby to make our covid tests appt. We spent the first 1.5 hrs running back and forth. We were not given our resort credits and we were approached by an employee who said we needed to come back to the main lobby to collect them, at which time they tried to sell something similiar to a timeshare. The food is decent. The italian and japanese restaurant is good. The employees at the restaurant were very courteous and friendly. The breakfast vip restaurant staff were not as accommodating, waiting for the ahutttle took longer than expected and arrived no more than 5 minutes aftee breakfast was over, they refused to seat us. The drinks are very weak. Ask for an extra shot to be put in your drink. Evening entertainment ends around 10:30 and the bar, I felt that was early. The beach is beautiful and I was happy to have access to jet skis. The rooms are clean for the most part, except the dead bug that was left on the bathroom counter after they came to clean room. The bathroom doors (to the toilet) are glass and just butt up against each other, so it doesnt seal into a lock or handle. That left little privacy for the person using the restroom. Last was the customer service given by the frint desk when calling to let them know the refrigerator was not refilled. I requested a diet coke and They refused.
