Beautiful hotel and beautiful location!

We stayed at the secrets resort for 1 week in a standard room. When we arrived staff were super friendly. We had a bit of a wait to get our room keys but were able to use all of the facilities whilst we wait, not a problem, just unexpected after such a long flight. The hotel is beautiful with stunning views of the bay and the surrounding area, it is very peaceful so you can hear the wildlife and if you're lucky see a few! The rooms are clean and modern,most of them are at the top of some very steep hills so although they can be walked too (not easily in flipflops or heels) it is better to get the hotel bus service, this is frequent and you can call from your room and the drivers are excellent, really friendly and happy to get to know you.
Each room comes with a tablet where you can get daily updates and request room service. We used this a few times and the quality of food was great!
The buffet is small but it was never a problem getting a table , the same can be said for each of the a la carte restaurants. All of which had a great selection of food which tasted amazing!
The hotel overall is just like all the pictures you will see, really pretty! The pools are set on different levels which gives the infinity pool look. The beach is a public beach so you get the odd person trying to sell something but they don't hassle you and will politely walk on. There were limited loungers on the beach but this could have been to the time of year, there was always enough if you got there in the morning.
We didn't join in with the activities but the staff were friendly and there were always people joining in and having fun.
All the staff are very nice and always happy, they personalise the service and so get to know you which was really good. After one introduction they will remember your room number and your name.
Overall I can not recommend enough, I will definitely return again!

This was a fantastic vacation with 6 couples.
The staff are so friendly, courteous and professional.
We had a medical emergency during our trip, and the resort staff were there with us constantly (like family).
So helpful, comforting, and reassuring.
The service was amazing, the people were so much fun.
The pools, beach, restaurants and facilities were great.
Best customer service we have had.
Thank you Secrets Papaguyo.

What an incredible experience!

My husband and I celebrated our honeymoon and his birthday (milestone year) at Secrets back in August. It was absolutely incredible. They left us prosecco as a honeymoon welcome gift, and brought by a small cake the next evening for my husband in a rainstorm. I was so impressed.

In addition to excellent food and an amazing setting, the service is unparalleled. Every single employee was committed to making sure our experience was wonderful. We felt so looked after. There are also lots of activities - like we went snorkelling and my husband saw a sea turtle, we also did a kayak tour and hit the tennis courts.

I would highly recommend this resort!
