Great Trip

Pros: The resort was great but the staff in particular were terrific. The restaurant manager was very helpful to my wife who has a gluten allergy
Cons: Nothing really but be warned that the resort sits in the hills above the bay so there is some up & down walking if you don't want to wait on transport
Location: Hotel is on a bay with a nice beach. Volcano, rain forest walks, river trips, wild life, hot springs, etc all within about an hour.
Very nice resort, GREAT staff - very friendly and helpful. Food was also excellent both at the resort and locally. The people outside the resort were also very friendly. Even though it was the "rainy season" we got out early and were not bothered much as the rains did not typically start until later in the afternoons. You have to travel a little if you want to go anywhere and be prepared - the roads in Costa Rica can be a little bumpy at times, but still, we had a great time. i would recommend Costa Rica and the Secrets Papagayo Resort

Nice resort, close to the beach.

Pros: Liked the friendly wait staff, and restaurant selection was good.
Cons: The room air conditioner cut off when the balcony door was opened. So, the room couldn't cool down while my husband and I were on the balcony!
Location: Ziplining and river tours were near. Volcano trips required 3 hour travel one-way.
Resort was very nice, several restaurants to choose from and numerous bars on the location. Public beaches in Costa Rica were well maintained by the resort, and available water sport equipment was well-maintained and staffed. Entertainment team was friendly, as was resort wait staff.
