I have been to this resort 3 times since it opened and it gets better every time I'm there. I absolutely love the friendliness of the staff and for an all-inclusive the food is excellent! If you haven't been you need to check it out.

So probably one of the closest hotels to the Liberia Airport which was super convenient for our last nights. The grounds were fabulous and I loved walking around them. We never took a cart, but if you have bad knees might be inevitable. Food was best we had in Costa Rica. But I was a little upset we didn't get...

Excellent all-inclusive resort. Staff was very helpful and went out of their way to provide for your needs. Including a wheel chair and golf cart drivers to take us to the pool, beach and dining. All in all could not ask for better resort.

My wife and I were very pleased with the level of service at the Secrets Resort. The entire staff was very helpful and courteous. In fact we even decided to join membership.

Amazing view, great staff, very knowledgeable. Pool bar was always an awesome time. I usually travel with kids so the fact that this was an adult resort was a great atmosphere. The food was really amazing as well.

Why come here when most other resorts do not have the problems. The food was subpar and was limited and boring. The pool was quite small. The beach was volcano sand and the ocean was discolored due to that. It was not swimmable as it was unpleasant to get stained. The beach was clean but incredibly buggy as to make...

Beautiful resort. I loved that the staff was so helpful and attentive. I wish there was some more local type food but otherwise the restaurants there were very good. It was very clean and kept up well.
