My husband and I checked in for our honeymoon. We upgraded our stay to enhance our experience. Butler service was poor our iPad never worked which controlled the TV along with viewing what was happening on the property. The entire stay we never felt what everyone else experienced during their stay. We were there from June 27 to July 4. This was during all the bad reviews and when Americans were getting ill. We dealt with a number of issues which took a lot of our time. No one seemed to care. The property was nice and close to airport. I really wish we had a better experience. Read less

Everything about this resort is A+. if you are looking for a total relaxation this is a place to be. The property is very convenient, super clean, the food is for any taste, rooms are spacious, with a nice size shower room. We are beach lovers and it's one of a kind. The water was lukewarm, clear turquoise and shallow. You can walk 1/3 of a mile approx. in the ocean. There was a seaweed, but they clean it all the time. At night you can always enjoy live music or show. The coffee shop is very nice.Excellent choice of coffee, coffee drinks, petite sandwiches and a variety of small pastries. Just Great. And, of course, the people. Friendly, accommodating, making you feel good. Read less

My husband and I just returned from 7 days at this beautiful resort. This was not our first time in the DR but first time at Secrets Cap Cana. The resort is a short drive from the airport. Took us about 15 minutes to get there. The moment you arrive you are greeted with a smile, a welcome home greeting, a glass of champagne and a cool wet towel. We did preferred club with a swim out room and it was beautiful. Check in was quick and easy. We were escorted to our room and given a quick tour of the resort by Oliver our concierge. He responded to pretty much all our requests (which weren’t many or unreasonable) but we hardly ever saw him throughout our stay unless we contacted him first. The rest of the staff was outstanding especially Vanessa at the preferred club beach. Her smile and happy attitude is contagious. She is truly a huge asset to this resort. She not only makes you instantly feel like you’re the only guest there but she treats you like you are family. We wanted to bring her home with us. 😂 I also need to mention Jorge who would bring drinks and food to our swim out daily. We had mentioned that we would love some authentic Dominican food and he said he would bring us some the following day. True to his word and at the time agreed upon, here he was with a beautifully plated tray of food. I just cannot say enough about the staff. They are there to make sure you have the best vacation experience possible and they really succeed at it. As far as the food goes, El Patio and Bordeaux was our personal favorites. My biggest and only complaint is the lackluster entertainment they offer. During the day they have a few pool games, water aerobics and some other activities that repeat every day so if you participate a few times, it gets boring by midweek because it never changes. There is live music in the lobby starting at 7pm every evening but once again, the same performer most nights. They do have an open theater with a show every couple of days. On our departure day the show was the first one we saw so the rotation had started. I really hope this area improves because we would love to return but we also like to dress up and have a place to go to after dinner. They have a disco which opens at 11pm but was always empty. Why not open earlier in an effort to attract more people? Most everyone was heading to their rooms by 10pm and those I spoke with said there was nothing to but go sit in a bar. Some resorts hit the mark when it comes to guest entertainment but I’m not sure what happened with scc. Ok so the resort was not at full or even half capacity due to all the news reports but there is no reason why the lack of entertainment for those of us who were there. As much as we loved the resort itself, the lack of entertainment left us feeling like we missed out on something especially after staying in other resorts where it was top notch entertainment. All in all, we don’t regret staying here because it is paradise in every other way. Lastly visit the DR! It is safe, it is beautiful and the people are warm and friendly. Read less

The Secrets Cap Cana is by far one of the best resort we have stayed at! The moment you arrive, you are greeted with a glass of champagne and the vacation begins! The lobby is breathtaking with amazing view of the ocean and right away you feel on vacation! The service is above and beyond, the staff will go out of their way to make your vacation even more special, everywhere on the resort. The room is very well decorated with all the amenities, the shower is amazing, the bed and pillows are soooo comfortable and room service is excellent! The food... OMG, the food is excellent and fresh in all the restaurants. In the lobby at night there is always live entertainment, signers or small band playing. The Coco coffee shop offers a variety of coffees and pastries, just delicious and is open 24 hours. The service on the beach is amazing with day beds that are so comfortable you just want to stay there and never leave. Every day there was an employee that would come by and offer you a coconut, cut the top and voila, fresh coconut water! We stayed in the Preferred Club section and I recommend it, it’s worth every penny and you get an even more personalized service with butler service! The first butler we had was Jorge and he was excellent, he was then leaving on vacation and introduced us to our second butler, Drago, chief of butlers. Drago was incredible, the service and attention he provided us was beyond, he is terrific! We want to thank all the staff for their warm hospitality, until next time❣️ Julie and Domingo Read less
