I was a bit skeptical when he proposed an all-inclusive Dominican Republic vacation. But I couldn't have been more wrong. I made a career change in the last year, and I had no idea how much I needed to take a vacation like this. My wife and I don't drink, and I wasn't sure what it would be like with all-inclusive top-shelf liquor. I have to say I only ran into one obnoxious drunk in the entire week. The food and weather were great, and the staff was terrific. My wife and I enjoyed yoga on the beach in the morning and boating in the afternoon. I highly recommend this vacation resort our bellman Miguel was terrific. Our group was pretty large, and with the use of an app, Miguel took care of every need. Read less

This was my 2nd time staying at Cap Cana - under normal circumstances this resort is amazing and one of the most beautiful beaches I have stayed on. I LOVE secrets resorts and have stayed at many. I have been a UVC Member for over 4 years. Until my stay at Cap Cana last week, I never thought twice about my purchase. We received our actual all-inclusive package 2/6 days, the last 3 days the resort shut their restaurants down and stopped all liquor service, then we had to checkout early due to Covid-19 and the resort closing down before our trip was over. We have yet to receive any kind of refund or some sort of apology for the way we were treated. Read less

March break started out great at this resort, but when closing the resort due to COVID 19, guests were kicked to the curb. Other than expected safety measures which no one was complaining about, the following occurred: Watering down the alcohol on Thursday, with no alcohol at all from Friday on, turning water temperatures down in the room showers, and low water pressure which caused toilets not to flush in pool and beach areas, removing soap, hand sanitizer, and hand towels from the bathrooms near the beach, no restaurants open on Friday March 20 with no food available other than the cold buffet scrap slop packages doled out to guests, (mine included a half-cooked bare pork chop bone and an odd piece of this and that). On Saturday, only some guests got a box of breakfast sent to their rooms. These particular things had nothing to do with the government issued imperative. Even though we pre-paid for All Inclusive, all this company was worried about was saving money because they were going to have to close down. We had a scheduled Saturday departure flight, whereas people scheduled to fly out Sunday lost three days of vacation amenities to their All Inclusive vacation. The red carpet was rolled up and put away by Thursday, and no one got their full money's worth. It felt like the resort seemed to be trying hard to force us out early. Service staff was great throughout, trying hard to minimize the impact by doing whatever they could. Read less

A beautiful resort. If you don’t love it here I’m not sure you could be happy anywhere. The beach is gorgeous!! (Better than Mexico) Food was fantastic. The staff is amazing. Anything we asked for we got and more. Leonardo was our concierge and was great. Big boy - entertainment, Soranyi -main pool waitress, Melly- waiter, Luis- waiter and Felix-towel attendant were all wonderful and went above and beyond. My rating would have been a 5 except for 2 things. The only rye whiskey they had was C.C. and at the end of our stay a large corporate group came and changed the vibe of the whole resort. We went out of our way to stay away from the group that seemed to think they owned the resort. (Smoking in the pool, being loud and disruptive). We still had an amazing vacation and hope that someday we will be able to return. Read less
