Secrets is an Adults-only (18+) all-inclusive resort, discreetly tucked away behind the curving sandy beach at Arenilla, on Costa Rica's glittering northern Pacific coast.

With 202 rooms and suites, Secrets is not overwhelmingly large by the standards of some resort hotels. With a range of facilities there's plenty on offer to keep you entertained, whether it's just for a few days or the focus of your holiday. Two swimming pools face the ocean and there's a well-equipped gym. Daytime activities such as beach volleyball, beach walks and water aerobics complement the evening's entertainment which can include theme nights, live music, dance lessons and rum and wine tasting sessions. You can indulge as many times as you like at a choice of à la carte restaurants and a seaside grill - or dine in the privacy your room if you wish. There are also several bars, including at the poolside or for tropical sundowners by the ocean.
