We traveled as a group of 8 friends (4 couples) July 2021. The resort is amazing - small enough that you see the same people again at the pool, dinner, shows, etc and it gives a nice vibe. Angelo Mercedes was our group concierge and he was great! He booked our reservations, helped connect to WiFi, arranged our covid tests and found us everyday to see if we needed anything. He coordinated any maintenance request (dripping AC), housekeeping item and our massages. He would text us with the daily resort activities and check in with us at dinner at the end of his day. We aren’t needy travelers and are pretty chill but was nice to have him coordinate things for us and let us enjoy our vacation! Every one of the staff were amazing. Pool service was great from Zumi and Martha and others! They all remembered us from day to day and would check to see if we needed anything. They kept our water stocked and would suggest drinks/bring us the drinks of the day with a smile. The drinks were good- we sampled most everything there was! Food- we had the Steakhouse, Mexican, Italian, hibachi and French for dinner. By far the most amazing was the French restaurant. Their filet and sides are the best! Lunch was often at the barefoot grille (ordered and delivered by the pool service) and was great- burgers, fish tacos and quesadillas were our favorites. Other days we had the seaside grill where we sampled a lot but the best were the chicken burrito, burgers and fish tacos. The buffet and room service were our primary breakfast choices and had a lot to offer. We would see the same staff rotate through different restaurants and they remembered us and would provide us great service- especially Juan Carlos who would bring drinks without even asking! We did water aerobics and beach volleyball with guests and the entertainment crew- Mr Blue, El Gato and Chicken legs were great! The beach- lots of reviews about sea grass and it’s not bad at all. I don’t know why people complain about it. The workers clean a lot of it up. We walked down past the Hyatt and into the public beach which were much worse than SCC and smelled much worse. It’s not the best beach I’ve ever been to, the sand is harder or stripped away near the water. But it is beautiful. The main pool is great. It is large and tiered down towards the beach. The only negative is that you can’t swim from end to end because of the tiers- you’d have to get out to continue to the next pool section. We primarily stayed at the closest section towards the beach which filled up quickly in the morning. It had a great view although the hedges were about a foot too tall to get a great view. Overall, we spent most of our time there and it was great. The pool boys would bring towels down at 9 and set up your chairs/umbrellas for you. Tips- although not required, we tipped everyone as much as possible. These workers survive with tips and after Covid, need all the help we can provide. Maids, bartenders, waiters/waitresses, cooks, etc. we’re great. We’d definitely stay there again- I loved the small resort feel and the staff can’t be beat. Thanks again to the SCC staff for the most amazing week - especially our concierge Angelo! Read less

Went as a group with 4 couples. Our personal concierge was Angelo Mercedes and he was great. Since we were a large group he set up dinner reservations for us each night and even arranged for a birthday cake for one of our friends on the last night. He checked in with us daily via text as well as stopped by while we were lounging by the pool. He found out I had some stomach issues on our last full day and brought me some Gatorade before we left. Zuny was an amazing pool-side waitress. She had the best attitude and was very attentive. We all had couples massages and did the hydrotherapy before. The hydrotherapy was ok. I had a better experience at Secrets in Jamaica as it was a more guided experience. Here it was just open pool with different bubblers, some showers, and sauna/steam room. I think I would have enjoyed that part more with some additional direction. The massage, however, was very good. I believe my masseuse was Jenny. I was so relaxed after I forgot to get a good look at her name tag at the and missed what she had said when she first introduced herself. We ordered room service through the tablet in the room, which was great, but when I tried to call to add some diet Coke’s, the phone was never answered- rang once or twice then nothing. There wasn’t an option to order those on the tablet. Overall, I feel our group had a great experience. If you like lounging and a great pool, this is the place. Read less

Had a wonderful time at Secrets Cap Cana. It is very restful under the sway of the palm trees and activities if your game. We were cared for by the best butler - Miguer. He always made sure we had everything we needed and went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our stay!
