Secrets Cap Cana provided our group of 14 with an amazing experience! Darling, our concierge, was attentive and checked in on us daily. He made us feel welcome the second we arrived, and assured we had a wonderful stay. We enjoyed the nightly entertainment, the food was incredible, the grounds are spotlessly clean and well-kept. Most of our time was spent at the swim-up bar where Manuela took great care of us. The bartenders Jeffrey and Juan were always smiling and provided excellent service. CoCo Café was a highlight every morning! The staff there were friendly and gave us a warm welcome each day with our coffee :) I honestly cannot thank the staff there enough for all they do for their guests. We absolutely felt like we were a part of the family, and I can’t wait to visit again! Read less

What a blessing! Overall good stay in this beautiful and clean resort. Just a couple of major issue which I will share at the end. I’ll start with the good stuff! Very helpful and friendly staff throughout the resort. Our concierges Wolfan and Martinez were both very helpful and responsive. Food was good. Favorite was the Bordeaux (French Cuisine) where we had DELICIOUS (Cotes Courtesz) short ribs and duck confit (Le Confit De Canardz) served by an amazing server, Richal. Also delicious ham croquettes at the Oceana. Special thanks to Doris who frequently served us on the beach, making sure we always had food, drinks and even an umbrella on a day we got caught in the rain. Issues/Concerns: 1. The resort sales process needs to be improved. We were told we were granted a $100 credit for scheduling breakfast with a sales representative so we used it for spa treatments. On the day and time of our appointment we went to the lobby to meet the representative and did not see her. After waiting several minutes we went to the Market Place breakfast restaurant thinking maybe she was waiting there. Not finding her there we went back to the lobby and finally were told the representative we were to meet with had a schedule change and was not there and that her supervisor was supposed to meet with us. Having never met the supervisor and with no specific meeting place within the lobby we had missed one another. When someone finally brought the supervisor to us we asked could we immediately go to the restaurant because we were scheduled to meet our new concierge there and also did not want to miss breakfast (by then it was close to closing time). We were told that was not possible because we needed to sit at a computer to complete paperwork. Significant vacation/relaxation time missed, felt like we were working. Pretty stressful!!!! Possibly sales representatives could use iPads so they can complete the forms/paperwork where its most convenient. We left for our meeting with our new Concierge and so that we didn’t miss breakfast. To our dismay at checkout we were informed there was no $100 credit to our account???? Completed a written complaint form (again spending precious vacation time) awaiting response from the resort management. 2. Information provided to guests regarding entertainment includes no descriptions, simply titles of shows. Enjoyed 3 of 4 shows we attended: Blues Brothers, Pop Show and especially Studio 54. However, with great disappointment also attended “Sensual”. We were caught off guard by the eroticism. We strongly urge the resort to include descriptions of all shows to safeguard guests from participating in entertainment they do not desire/need to engage. Read less

The concierge, Darling, was amazing and the staff was super friendly. Our only complaint is that the food wasn't what we are used to at an all inclusive. Most of it wasn't very tasty, but we do recommend the hibachi, el Patio, and Portofino. Also, we felt like we were constantly being sold to. I don't want to avoid certain areas of the resort… Read more
