    Secrets Papagayo Visit

    Had a great stay. Soummer and Najari played blackjack with us and were very entertaining. We will definitely visit again. The staff was very friendly. We enjoyed the Seaside Grill and the hibachi restaurant. Eric and Marcos are great servers at Himtisu. Definitely give this place a try!
