Not much to be said that hasn't been said - this place is paradise with excellent service. We had a blast and didn't want to leave! Laura, our concierge, was amazing. She went above and beyond to make sure that we had the best possible time. Agripina and Yajaira Tapia kept our room immaculate and perfectly timed their visits. We loved the sparrows and honeybees; it feels like the resort is immersed in nature. It was nice that the gorgeous lobby was used to its full potential with a lovely bar, live music, coffee shop and club adjacent. In many resorts you only see the lobby on check in/out but this lobby is stunning and I'm so glad it was made a social centerpiece. I don't know how they keep the beach/pool towels so soft with all the laundering, but I love it. Suggestions: trim the bushes down a bit near the ocean in infinity pool so you can see the beautiful view. And mix it up with the music at the pool...at times it seemed like death by disco, haha! Other standout employees: Wander and Eudy at the pool bar are fabulous and fun! Fidelina at the pool ("everything is possible especially with Fidelina") provided great service. La Diva (entertainment team) is a bundle of energy and fun. Larry at Seaside Grill, Julio at the pool, and Ruddy at El Patio were all awesome. Yuleisy at Portofino, Aurelina, Weston, and Justino also stood out. Read less

We just returned, and this resort is great. Food was average/above average at all restaurants and breakfast buffets. Split stay between junior suite tropical view and Preferred Club swim out suite. Swim out was great, but not sure it’s worth the extra money, and neither is the Preferred Club. Both rooms were identical, except for the swim out option. Grounds were very well kept. The main downside was Beach was just average and had a lot of seaweed. Pools were very nice. The drink service was top notch. Never felt unsafe at all, but never left the resort. Had a great vacation at a fraction of the normal cost. Read less

THIS RESORT IS AMAZING!!!! EXCLUSIVELY SAFE, NO CONCERNS! Long review with tons of questions answered from previous reviews and comments on the fan page on FB. **Fourth all-inclusive Secret’s resort we have visited, second time to Punta Cana…** We originally made our reservations for Secret’s Royal which we loved on our first visit to the D.R. a few years ago, but due to the shut down of the preferred section (which we had paid for & were not told about until it was too late) and the unprofessionalism of communication with the resort we had to change our reservations at the last minute; and I mean last minute. What a great decision, this resort is stunning and reminded me of set-up/environment of Secret’s Capri in MX. STUNNING VIEW AS WELL! I would like to address our experience vs. some of the feedback others have given: Drinks aren’t strong enough – we never had an issue with this at all and when we asked for shots, they were more than 3x you would get in any other environment. And if you wanted a certain brand all you had to do is ask. Yes we were on the preferred but they did it throughout the resort, no questions asked. Ocean/beach – the first day we were there the seaweed was horrible but it was due to a previous storm the day before and one of the barrier walls was damaged. After that day the beach and water were freaking amazing and glad my initial disappointment was temporary. They work so hard to keep the seaweed out of the water but they can only do so much, but BOOM, within 24 hours it was gone. We did walk down to the other side of the beach areas and I have to say, the resorts beach is a 100% better than any stretch of that beach. Vendors/time-share – I do understand that others had issues with sale pitches, requests for upgrades and such, but we were not bothered at all, not once did we get hounded by anyone at this resort or on the beach. If anything, we were given free stuff all the time. That being said, I think it is a random occurrence and you just never know which time it will be yours. However, that was an issue at the Secrets Royal, especially trying to walk on the beach, which was my only complaint at that resort at that time. Food – although, there were some restaurants not open here/there due to capacity, there was no shortage of food. There room service is delicious as well. For some reason I am obsessed with their pepperoni pizza, which I do not usually eat pepperoni. Food was super yummy! On to my review: I love the set-up of this resort, not too big and not too small but the lay out is spread out wide not deep, easy to get to everything. Don’t be scared if you see Stingray while you wade in the calm water, there is a Stingray spot for snorkeling across the barriers, it was so cool to be hanging out with the majestic creature in it natural habitat. FREAKING AMAZING! Also, you will find live crab seashells as well, the little critters will come out to play if you pick the shell up, be careful. LOL. Our favorite place was at the beach and we always had #2 hut, Hector was the man and set our hut up with towel each morning. Secretly, I believe they were saving that one for us each morning as that was our hang out spot. The service was impeccable and there are so many people I could name but here are a few: Building 9 BUTLER SERVICE– JORGE…. He was amazing! Treats, surprises daily, and always texted me daily to check on us. I have the Whatsapp that I use for international travel and that is the main way we contacted him. Quick responses! He even came to the beach to find us to find out what we would like to eat each evening. And at the last minute (our fault) we changed our mind on the last day and decided to go to the beach party BBQ for our last night. Somehow he got us tickets within 5 minutes and brought them to us in our room and brought 2 for our “new” friends as well. I will definitely request him each time we go. ZANY – beach service, EXCELLENTE’. She was fun and made sure we were taking care of and did anything and everything for us including hanging out with our new peeps and use. We stayed at the beach all day, everyday! JOSE – preferred bar, he was a hoot, always had something up his sleeve and was just amazing. A few of us didn’t want to leave one night, 11PM close, and we were kicked out by another staff member because he wouldn’t kick us out. She wasn’t mean at all, just persistent as we should have left at 11PM, we stayed till 11:10 LOL. He is a must see. There is more that I can say but just know that the resort is amazing, the staff is amazing even though there may be a bit of a language barrier but the staff will go out of their way for you. Translation app works wonders if you do not know Spanish. Also, keep in mind the capacity rate is lower due to all the other bad incidents which for guests it is a positive but not for the resort staff, especially since 50+ people were laid off. We tipped for everything and generously as they work their butts off. ENJOY! Read less

By far, this was the best trip of 2019 for me. I’ve been a few places but nothing was more relaxing than this. Our concierge Ross (Rose) was the best. Very attentive and made my boyfriends bday a complete success. Rose petals on the bed and she scheduled a romantic dinner on the beach. He and I both loved it. I’ll be back.
