I went to Secrets Silversands with my wife for a week long holiday. We have been to approximately 30 all inclusive resorts throughout Mexico, Jamaica, DR, Nassau, St. Lucia and other parts of the... Read more Carribean. Without a doubt, we found that the food, which is a key item for us, to be far better than any resort we had been to before. We thought the number of restaurants, the selection and quality of the food, together with the friendly service was better than we have had at any other place. We really liked the "no reservation" policy. We also liked not having to bother with the silly towel cards that many hotels insist on - as if I spend the money to go on vacation to steal hotel towels. Our only complaint was that the our room had a bit of a musty smell. We generally try different hotels when we go away though so are unlikley to return to Silversands though will definitely try another Secrets Read less
This was our 2nd visit to Secrets Silversands and we have to say we were not disappointed. We originally spent 7 nights at Silversands in March of this year and liked it so much we went back for 13... Read more nights this November. Upon arrival we were greeted with the usual cold towel and glass of champagne where Arturo escorted us to the Preferred Club for check in. We met with Fahdir Rubi, the Preferred Club Manager. We are members of the Unlimited Vacation Club and no it is not a time share program. Fahdir was there every day to make sure things ran smoothly. The staff in the Preferred Club were excellente, answered all our questions and offered assistance. If you want a great Margarita ask Josh at the bar in the preferred lounge to mix was one up, I guarantee it’s the best one you will ever have. Thank you Perla and David, UVC, for making us feel so welcomed and taking such good care of our guests during their stay. We stayed in an Ocean Front Deluxe Room which was very spacious and housekeeping was excellent as was the turn down service each night. They provided fresh towels twice per day and left us one of those cute towel figurines each night. They left red rose petals every night. It was nice to sit out on the balcony after a long day and enjoy a glass of red wine. The food at this resort is amazing. We took the kitchen tour which I believe is offered on Thursday’s at 4:00 PM. If you get a chance take it, very informative and you’ll get a chance to meet the Chefs. We didn’t really have a favorite restaurant, as all the food was excellent. Ask for Daniel, the Manager at El Patio. Bordeaux is amazing and Juan Jose, Manager, will make sure you are taken care of. Enrique, the Manager in the Italian Portofino restaurant is the man you want to see for wine recommendations and perhaps a romantic dinner in the wine room. Definitely try to take in the show at the Tapenaki table in the Japanese restaurant, the only dining you will need reservations for. You can book at 5:00 PM that day for that night, go early as there is usually a line up. The sushi conveyer belt is also fun. My favorite meal was the Osso Buco in Portofino but all the restaurants are good. Oceana is a nice change of pace for the guys where you can dress in shorts and the ocean breeze is fantastic. Sous Chef Jose is always around and he will whip you up a great custom meal. The desert creations are amazing. There are 8 pools and such great service. The main pool is where all the action is and that’s where the incredible entertainment staff does their thing. We really enjoyed the interaction with all the entertainment staff. They all have such energy, good job Alex 14. Each day there are different activities such as the lazy game at 10:00 AM and the crazy game at 3:00 PM. Pool volley ball sometimes twice per day, beach volley ball sometimes twice per day. They try an encourage participation but are not pushy. We want to mention Rueben who has a real passion and is quite the comedian. Also Nico, who we met on our first trip in March, is very funny. Both of these guys will be around the pool and are very active. Luis is also part of the team and when he pairs up with Murano, it’s hysterical. Luis runs the pool aerobics at 12:00 with the help of Jackie and Stephanie who also run the Zumba classes with Marian. If you want to learn how to dance see Murano. Mexican Lottery at the pool at 2:30 and Bingo at the Veranda Bar at 4:30. I know.. Bingo really on vacation in Mexico..? But give it a shot! It’s fun and there can be some good prizes. These guys work very hard and very long to entertain day and night and they do an outstanding job. The entertainment staff was one of the best parts of our stay. The service at the pool and the ocean is incredible. They will bring you drinks and food from the Barefoot Grill, although a visit to the Grill is mandatory, great burgers and BBQ’d chicken breasts. We love Veronica at the pool service; she is so sweet and always has a smile. I can’t believe how hard these servers work. All of this is run by a man named Gabriel (almost like God), he is there day and night looking after everything. You will see him during the day at the various bars and at night he will be at the Veranda Bar where everyone congregates before and after dinner. The nightly shows put on by the Entertainment team are great. They bring in acts from around the area. If you get a chance to see the magic show it’s worth it, this guy is really good. The Veranda Bar – this is the place you will spend most of your nights. The bartenders are incredible. There is Arturo, Russell, Jose and Axel. All top shelf spirits and they will mix up whatever you want. They remember your name and your favorite drink. They will joke and have fun with the crowd as the night goes on. Great guys. We will definitely be back, we miss all of you and the great experience we always have at Silversands. If you get an opportunity to stay there you won't be sorry. A great place to relax and be taken care of. Joanne & Jim C (JJ) Read less

The entertainment staff was fun and definiately entertaining, Nico, Luis and Estephanie were so livley and fun. The food was amazing. Our breakfast was made better by Juan at the buffet aswell. Never a dull moment. If you are a beach person unfortunatly this was the only downfall of the resort but everything else made up for it. For sure a 5 star resort! Read less
