The hotel

The adults-only Secrets Cap Cana Resort & Spa is set in the private gated community of Cap Cana, directly on the magnificent sugar-sand Juanillo Beach. Within close proximity to the Cap Cana protected marina and two renowned golf courses, designed by golf legend Jack Nicklaus, you can spend the morning marveling at the super yachts and finish the day off with a round of golf alongside the Caribbean sea. The coastlines are also considered among the best spots in the world for fishing and deep-water diving. It is not hard to see that Secrets Cap Cana is the epitome of luxury and its exclusive setting is matched by its guarantee of Unlimited-Luxury®, including 24-hour gourmet dining, limitless top shelf spirits, wines, beers and soft drinks, 24-hour Concierge service, movies on the beach, and weekly parties. It even has waiter service on its palm-studded white sandy beach and around its incredible infinity lagoon pool. You can experience a different dining venue for every day of the week, six of them à la carte restaurants along with a buffet restaurant. But, with a beautiful suite to retreat to, you might prefer to make the most of the all-inclusive 24-hour room service.

6th time in 4 years to this resort and when we think it cant get better, somehow they make it better. The UVC has 2 AMAZING people in Cristina & Nicoletta. Every trip we make they somehow make it better than the last. We always leave there thinking we had a perfect vacation and when we go again it was better than the last. The personal touch that we always gets seem is truly unreal with a resort of that size! SCC wouldnt be what it is without staff they have!!!! Alexis our Concierge was "ON POINT"!!! Anything we asked for and somethings that we didnt ask for was done immediately and beyond expectations. Javier (Preferred Bartender), Larry at the (French Restaurant), Christian at the (Hibachi Restaurant) & all the staff at the COCO Cafe are just a few that stood out... that also made our trip seem extra special. But it all starts and ends with Cristina & Nicoletta... from check-in to check out.... we feel like family and always look forward to our next trip to SCC. People always ask what our favorite part of our trips are and i can honestly say... when it comes to SCC it is the staff!!!! No other resort has the people like SCC... HOME!!!!! Read less

Nice resort with friendly staff. Very large beach and clean pools. Our butler Leonardo made it extra special with his personal touches. Only one restaurant required reservations which made dinner easy each evening. We went on an excursion to Saona Island and it had a really pretty beach

We brought our son and girlfriend to this resort for their college graduation. We knew that it would be an older crowd but we didn't want a party resort. We were greeted with such enthusiasm for our celebration. It also happened to be my husband's birthday. Our Butler, Philippe was outstanding. He had special arrangements made for champagne and birthday cake in our room when we arrived, He did the same for our son and his girlfriend in their suite. Our room suite was fantastic! We were in building 4 on the oceanfront. It had an expansive balcony with entrances from the bedroom and living room. On the balcony here was a couch, two sitting chairs and a small table with two chairs for outside dining if desired. We enjoyed many Nespresso cappuccinos (included in the room) while sitting at the table and appreciating the ocean front views. Philippe made our vacation one to remember. He checked in with us daily to make sure all our wants and needs had been met. He also arranged for all our spa services, transportation, and diner reservations when needed. My son's girlfriend caught a bug and was feeling dehydrated and he managed to find some Gatorade for her. Not sure how he did that but it was much appreciated:) The resort is very tropical and the ground were well maintained. The food was just average. The service at all bars and restaurants was excellent. The Preferred Club bar was very secluded and a nice place to sneak away for a quiet top-shelf drink. The bartender Francy was so kind and friendly. He made a very nice drink. Our son especially appreciate Francy cocktails:) I do not find the Secret Resort to be ones for romantic getaways. The balconies are all open to each of the rooms on the floors. It is hard to have romantic conversations or alone time when your neighbors can see you and hear your conversations. It is not just this secrets resorts but all of them. If you are looking for romance I think there are other resorts that offer far better experiences. The spa is perhaps the most understated spa we have been to. We always plan a couples massage when we travel. Our massage therapists were fantastic but the experience was far from romantic. The room had windows with sunlight streaming in and it lacked the scents and sound of a relaxation room. The water therapy area also felt sterile and laced service. The flavored water available was actually very refreshing and much needed. The nighttime entertainment was very good. We especially liked the Beatles and Queen shows. Read less
