Great Honeymoon!!

We spent our Honeymoon at Secrets, Punta Cana from Aug 21-26, 2012. It was nice to have Olympus Travel to shuttle us from the airport to the resort pre-arranged. We were greated with a refreshing towel and welcome beverage! The resort was just as we had imagined and just as portrayed in the photographs online. We had a bit of a snag with our first room #5380 as the air conditioning did not function properly. Later our first day we were moved to room #5239 and it was much better! I will say that the rooms have a bit of a musty smell and the sheets always feel damp. I think this is from the high humidity levels there and possible the system used for cooling. The room was beautiful and we especially liked the walk-in shower! The jacuzzi tub on the balcony was also a lot of fun! The service was wonderful and the food very good. Our favorite evening out was spent at Ocean's. The service was top notch here and the atmosphere was very romantic. We also dined at the Bluewater Grill at the Now (sister property). The food was good, but the service was not on the same level as Secret's restaurants. We enjoyed the Rivera. Jencen was our favorite waiter! The beach grill had the best hamburgers ever!! One day we rented a cabana with full service. That was well worth it and we totally enjoyed our day. Entertainment and things to do were plentiful. Despite the threat of Tropical Storm Isaac a bit of wind and some rain, we had a blast. This was a great value for the money spent and we left with the desire to return. One note of advice...do not allow yourself to be lured by the men on the beach who want to show you gifts that you can buy. They walk you down the beach to an indoor market that looks quite scary. The building is run down and you wonder if you go in, will you ever be seen again. There are a number of shops in there and the prices are all inflated. Instead, take the free shuttle to the shopping mall that is close to the resort. There are two gift stores there that have a lot of the same things (higher quality) for less money. We were really impressed by how eager everyone was to serve us at Secrets and the friendlyness of the people. It made us feel so welcome!

Super Nice Resort

Secrets Royal Beach in Punta Cana is a beautiful resort with one of the best rooms I have stayed in so far!! The shower was amazing! The swim-up suite was a very good option, as the chairs by the pool and swim-up bar seemed to be "saved" all the time. So we always had poolside chairs by our rooms. A little spendier than other places I have stayed. The waiters did make their way around to the swim-up suites as well as around the pool. The one problem was with the availability of certain bottled cerveza. The only beer on tap was the local Presidente. So, the bottled beer was very limited. And apparently everyone liked the bottled beer alot better than the local beer on tap, because they were always out of the good beer. If you are a beer drinker, that is a problem. We tried to get a 12 pack of a dominican bottled beer that we liked better than the presidente beer and they said we could, but when they came to deliver, it was the presidente beer in cans. That was the only problem with the all-inclusive that we experienced. The restaurants were excellent. We never had to wait in line to eat and never had a bad meal. There was a beach grill that we did not find out about right away. It was located way on the south end of the Secrets beach in front of the main restaurant. It served delicious grilled meats for a quick bite on the beach. When you just get there, people will grab you and try to seem helpful. Don't fall for the sales pitch and just tell them no right away. It gets a little bothersome with them trying to get you to purchase a membership to their unlimited travel club. If we had that little tip ahead of time, would have been appreciated. We had several hours of our vacation wasted with people pressuring us to go to meetings and such. Also, there was a definite language barrier. Know some spanish if at all possible!! Overall, Secrets is a fabulous resort and I would return!

Beautiful sunrise and beach! Our

February 23, 2012

Just returned from a belated honeymoon at the Secrets Royal Beach resort. Everything was exactly as shown in the photos on the website. Just beautiful. Everything was clean, and the service and staff were great. There was always an activity or show available if you were interested in that, but we were perfectly content to just lounge by the pool for the week. The food was quite good for a resort buffet and although we had access to both the restuarants on our property and the adjoining Now Larimar property, we found that the variety of the nightly buffet offered most of what you could get in the restaurants anyway. We aslo used the spa services while there which was also very nice. My one complaint is that upon arrival, you are immediately asked to sit with a member of the hotel sales group to get information, at which time they ask you to meet them them the next morning so they can have you sit for a 90 minute sales pitch about buying into their Unlimited Club. You feel bad for the sales people because it's how they make their living, but it just wasn't how we wanted to spend our time and I'm not sure it was the way you want to be welcomed to a resort after you had spent the day traveling. I would definitely visit this resort again without question.

Nice but not the best for the money

We enjoyed our trip considering we went during the rainy season, which we did not know when booking. The hotel is very nice and so are those representatives that worked at the front desk. We upgraded to the swim-up suite when we got there because it was alot cheaper than doing it when you book your trip. The rooms are wonderful, very clean and colorful. And they restock your mini bar every morning and turn down your sheets for you at nite.There is basically only one restuarant besides the buffet that is located on your hotel property...the other nice restuarants are located on their sister hotel's property, which isn't far...walking distance. SPICE was by far our favorite Resturant... it is just like Japanese Steakhouse but better! Casino is located in the same area...we had alot of fun there. They also have bowling, movie theatre and lots of entertainment nitely! The pools and beach were the best part...you not only get your property pools are bars but also the sister hotel's pools and bars...Drinks were amazing by the way! Bad Parts: Some of the buffet food was okay but for the most part we did not enjoy it and too many flies! We even got pushed outside when we got to the breakfast buffet just before they closed it...they wouldn't even let us sit down inside because they were ready to start moving everything for lunch. The rooms were nice but we did have a problem with our sheets and pillows smelling like mildew from being washed and set out. And Service was okay but half the people just acted like they hated there jobs. And the food on the room service menu was not that great. We have traveled to three different places in the Carribbean this year and we have also stayed at the Secrets Silversand in Rivera Maya, which was amazing!!! This hotel is very nice but was not as nice as the one we stayed at in Rivera Maya...

What's to Love

Doing absolutely nothing (zero, nada) but chillaxin' on the sugar-white shores of the legendary Playa Bavaro.

Suites adorned in delicious, happy oranges and blues that have a furnished balcony or terrace with a Jacuzzi.

You can revel in Gilchrist & Soames® bath goodies.

There's nightly turn down service with chocolates. (Total rock star thang).

You don't have to pack your bathrobe and slippers - they're in the room.

Sinking into that between-sleep-and-waking-wonderfulness during a Moon & Stars Massage as you enjoy sparkling wine and passion fruits.

The lazy river and whirlpools where you can float for hours and hours and ... (oh, did you say something?)

You can go horseback riding, which to many, is a dream come true. (In tropical wonderlands this is rare).

 

What We'd Change

Though the restaurants don't require reservations, and there's the restaurants at the sister hotel, the dining onsite is a bit limited.

 

Why You Should Go

It's just a short 30 minute hop from the airport - enough time to get really thirsty for that sparkling welcome cocktail.

You can work up a sweat (read: burn calories) playing tennis, basketball, and volleyball, then take a dip in the ocean.

Upgrade to Preferred Club, get better rooms, a private pool, and exquisite desserts/fine liquors and more.

For a break from the (sometimes blistering) sun, there's bowling, dance lessons and Spanish lessons.

Up for a jaunt into the wild? Go on an eco-adventure tour and or an ATV ride, but buckle up.

There are five awesome golf courses nearby to get your game on. Schwing.

Make a splash with kayaking, sailing, snorkeling, windsurfing. (Woot!)

A doctor is on call 24/7. Always good to know, especially for hypochondriacs.
