We had a really nice time. Enjoyed all the food and beach volleyball. The staff was really nice. Thought I would get more than we did with the butler service but all the waitress on the beach were amazing. We had fun with the activities and “the cat” was awesome!

I spent time reading reviews prior to booking resort. I am writing a review that might be a lil long hoping to help others. 24 friends ages 23-80 traveled last week to SCC. We are booked preferred -some booked swim outs pool view and others bungalow pool view. We have traveled w groups of our friends to Mexico Mayan Rivera resorts staying at Iberostars,Barcelona,Pallidium,Oceans,Breathless, and multiple Secrets resorts. SCC blows all the others away! Let me be clear we enjoyed every trip and every resort had amenities,service,food that was different or better than others. SCC won all of our hearts. the beach was beautiful, i spent time everyday enjoying the water. You can walk out far and the water never went over 5 feet. Beach service preferred ladies brought us drinks,food, and we had many laughs with Maria and Vanessa🌴. Our room 1002 we feel was the best in the resort. Our swimout got full sun-was right next to Rosewater Preferred bar and overlooked the preferred pool. Daily we were delivered tidbits,crepes,desserts to our swimout. All waitstaff was exceptional! We were assigned Anibel as our butler. We have never used the services of a butler at any other resort. We were always told with preferred you get a butler and we would laugh thinking what would need a butler for? What do the do? We have never had a butler reach out to us in years of travel. Anibel is an asset to SCC and made our vacation the best we have ever had. This review is about the resort but I want all to understand Anibal blew us away with his kindness, sincere attitude and all the goodies-drinks he sent to our room. Anibel made suggestions for dinner and reservations when we wanted to eat later in the evening. Champagne,dessert and Chocolate trays. He helped us schedule our COVID test and stayed with us thru the process. My husband didn’t receive his test results by email and after multiple attempts I texted Anibal and he delivered a paper copy of results to us. We all loved the Coco Cafe for coffee,sweets and the many laughs we had with Dania,Melvin,Esther, and Raquel. After the first day they would have our coffees,frappes and sweets ready When the saw us entering the shop. Mexican restaurant was our favorite. Lobby bar at night was a great place to people watch,listen to music and have some drinks. We received a text from Anibel the day we returned home saying it was his pleasure to help us on our trip. Anibal if you read this review-it was our pleasure to meet you and experience SCC. THANK YOU Mel and Leslie your Boston family Read less

The resort is beautiful. The staff is extremely friendly and can't do enough for you. The entertainment is too notch. The food is pretty good. Typical resort type of food. The pools are very large and plenty of seats. Large clean beach where servers will come to you and keep you satisfied. We had Oliver as our butler. He was always there if we needed anything even after he went home for the day he would check in with us by texting and would help with any needs. La Diva is part of the entertainment crew and you can't help but fall in love with her. Only possible downside is they need more hobbies cats you are limited to 30 min trips which is barley enough to sail around much. The extra night dinner you can pay 80$ I would not do that again. We got ate up by bugs and the food wasn't that good and we had barley finished and it started pouring. Otherwise this was paradise and I will go.back . Read less

We just spent a week at Secrets Cap Cana for our honeymoon and the resort was beautiful. We had Anibal as our butler and he went above and beyond for us. We had 10 friends with us and he made sure we were taken care of every day. From making reservations for our group so we could all sit together to checking in on us multiple times a day making sure we were having the best time. He checked in on us every morning, sending us the daily activities, and made sure everything was great before he left in the evenings. He set up to have champagne, desert, and rose petals in our room for our honeymoon and even left a very sweet card. We could not have asked for a better butler. Anibal was truly amazing, a very kind and generous person. We would definitely love to come back to this resort. Read less
