The setting is gorgeous. The property, however, needs some safety upgrades (better lighting, better gutters/drainage system, and handrails along stairs). Also, we paid for "preferred" status but noticed little difference from non preferred status

never again
Would not choose to stay here again. I was especially disappointed with the check in process at Secrets Papagayo. We just travelled up from the Westin Playa Conchal which was super efficient whereas when we got to the property gate, the gentleman here could not even find my name though the one at the main lobby could. In addition, we waited a while to be taken to the Preferred Club where we were checked in by Angelica. She was not friendly or seemed at all interested in us. We then waited 25mins for a shuttle to be taken to our room. After 10mins of waiting my husband asked her how long it would be- she said she didn't know. In this timeframe, two other shuttles picked up people from outside. For us to have booked a Preferred Club room, there is nothing that feels "preferred". The price currently does not seem justified based on the service received. In addition, we met Yalmar with the VIP team on the 2nd day and he took my husband's phone number down and said he would What's App him so we could get in touch with any issues and we never heard from him again. Also, the housekeeping team was really sloppy. Usually, they would tidy up toiletries, etc- I returned to see toiletries in the same mess I left them in. They also took our dirty towels but never gave us clean ones until I called reception. Also, we used up the tissues in the tissue box and I don't think they even looked to see if it needed refilling as it wasn't refilled for the rest of our stay.

If you love staying at secrets resorts then secrets papagayo is worth staying at. The staff is very polite, the resort is gorgeous and secluded. If you are looking for more of a party resort or secrets vacation then I would definitely not choose this secrets papagayo as it is mostly couples and is relatively quiet.
