Our room was a king, oceanfront bungalow with a great view of the bay and the rest of the beach property. The beach, although the public, rarely had dozen people on it at any given time. The pool areas were...

We stayed Secrets from 21st-29th November and from start to finish it was fantastic. We arrived after a 11hour flight from the UK and were through airport fairly quickly and put on the correct bus to secrets. The resort was only a 20-25 min bus ride and then you are welcomed home by the fabulous staff with a cold towel...

We enjoyed 7nights at the secrets in Costa Rica. The visit was very relaxing. We loved the set up of the villas. The evenings are relaxing with some nice music. If you are looking for lots of night time activities this may not be your type of resort. Also When we visited the amphitheatre was under renovation so there were...

This resort is first class. Runs like clockwork. This year Thomson started flights from the UK to Liberia. It is only a 20 minute transfer to Secrets.
