Man, everything about this resort just blows me away. I would say Secrets Cap Cana is my favorite resort in Punta Cana. Actually, it is possibly my favorite in all of the Caribbean and Mexico. This resort checks off all of my boxes of what is important to me: beautiful and modern grounds; upscale/luxurious, but fun atmosphere; a breath-taking beach; excellent service; friendly & engaging staff; and very good food. The staff here absolutely go out of their way to ensure that you have an amazing stay. This isn't a party-hard resort. it has a laid-back and chill atmosphere, but you can still have fun and be entertained. I know that I was, lol. I'm an energetic and social person. I had no problems mixing and mingling with others at Secrets Cap Cana during my solo vacation. When I wanted peace and tranquility, I had no problems finding that either. The animation team works very hard to keep the guests entertained and to have a lively atmosphere. You will find them in the main pool area close to the beach during the day. The non-Preferred main pool area by the swim-up bar is the social scene during the day. If you want quiet in the non-Preferred pool areas, there are still areas around the main pool for peace. Both non-Preferred and Preferred beach areas can be calm and relaxed, but you do have your occasional somewhat lively groups of friends/family. Nothing gets out of hand though. The Preferred pool area is very quiet and relaxing. I didn't spend any time here though. I went to the non-Preferred pool as that was a livelier scene. At night, it's a bit quieter & low-key than the day. Night entertainment consisted of karaoke, Poker Night, singers/musicians at the pool & lobby lounge besides the nightly shows. There is also a nightclub. Depending on the crowd or your own energy, there can be fun times to be had at the club. The lobby bar/lounge is the social scene at night. I stayed in the Preferred Club this time as my first stay was non-Preferred. You will be treated like royalty either way. I would say this is the first resort that I've been to where you didn't have to upgrade to ensure a proper level of service. If you are a non-Preferred guest, you will have concierge to attend your needs. Preferred guests have butlers. With that said, the Preferred Club is a very nice perk to have. I stayed in a Preferred Club Swim-Out suite for 5 nights. I had an oceanfront location which was oh so glorious! Waking up to the view of the ocean/beach every morning was absolute Heaven. When I was in my swim-out pool, I also received consistent and attentive drink service from the servers. Clutch!! That secret box that is in the room is a must-have for all resorts. When you order food/drinks and you don't want to be disturbed, you can have room service place your order in the secret box. Genius idea! I used the secret box regularly during my stay. My favorite area of the resort is the Preferred beach area. I like the padded loungers and the covered daybeds that the Preferred beach provides. The non-Preferred beach area doesn't have this. I know...First world problems, lol. Both non-Preferred and Preferred pool areas have covered daybeds and padded loungers though. Now I'm a hardcore beach person. If you are the same, then this is the resort for you. The sand has a powdery feel to it and is off-white in color. This area blows away the Bavaro beach area as far as I'm concerned. The Bavaro beach area is pretty, but this is postcard-picture perfect. You can also go out very far to the ocean with the water still up to your chest. The ocean here is very calm - almost like a pool. I spent most of my mornings and afternoons at the beach. They even have a flag system for drink service at the beach. If you need service, you raise the flag or plant it in the sand. A server will then attend to you quickly...Brilliant!! Highlights of my trip: I would like to thank Angela and Juan for amazing service at the Preferred beach bar. Angela is so sweet and attentive. She would always check up on me to see if I needed a refill. I looked forward to seeing Hector every day at the Preferred beach and his service with a smile. I enjoyed my late afternoons with Yulian at the Preferred lounge bar. It was a great way to end the long day at the beach. Yulian made for fun and entertaining moments with those tasty drinks. It was always a pleasure to see Francis at a restaurant. He was always so courteous and helpful. Anais was a warm and friendly face to see at the Preferred lounge reception. I would also like to give a special thank you to Steves. Steves wasn't even my official butler during my stay, but he gave absolutely exceptional service. He was very helpful and went above and beyond. You will feel very lucky to have Steves as your butler if you are a guest at this resort. My second visit was a solo vacation, but my first stay at Secrets Cap Cana was for a girls' trip. My upcoming 3rd stay will be for an adult family vacation. This isn't' just a couples resort. I encountered couples, groups of families, and friends during my stay. If you want to be pampered and have the time of your life, I highly recommend this resort. Read less

When planning a second honeymoon we asked our travel agent (who has been on every Caribbean Island) where his absolute favorite destination was and he immediately responded Secrets Cap Cana. Two weeks before our vacation my mother-in-law unexpectedly passed away on my Husband’s Birthday. She was buried 3 days before our departure date and we considered canceling. Thankfully out family talked us into going. We had a wonderful time and EVERYTHING WAS GREAT! We were able to escape to “Paradise” and loved our ocean front room! Our travel agent booked us in the Preferred Club and we were so fortunate to have RONALD as our amazing Butler! He made our trip extra Special. The resort was beautiful and so clean everywhere. The food was good and the service was excellent; all the staff we encountered was so courteous and helpful. Everyone was always making sure we enjoying ourselves. We really enjoyed ending our evenings in the lobby bar where Bartenders Carlos & Ramon we’re friendly, caring and very entertaining! Thank you Ronald, Carlos and Ramon for making a special and memorable week Extra Special! We definitely will return. Read less

This was our third stay and honestly we did not want to leave! This resort is absolutely beautiful and the staff is beyond amazing, not sure what you could ever ask for more in a resort. As we have said in our previous reviews, this has become our second home, once a year, and our extended family forever. Upon arrival we were already recognized and were welcomed with open arms. As we already knew the routine of the check-in process, we walked on down to the Preferred Club Lounge and met with STEVES. We cannot say enough wonderful things about this gentleman. He is our Dominican Family, as we keep in touch all throughout the year and can't wait to come back to see his smiling face. He is one of kind and special to us. As he escorted us to our room it was like we had never left and were truly coming back home. Our Room... Our Room Was Absolutely Breathtaking!!! It was truly an escape within our escape and Steves' special treatment throughout the week was by above and beyond what we could ever dream of. When we walked into our room all we could see was the beautiful blue/teal waters out the doors of our oceanfront swim out suite. As we told him, he completely spoiled us this year as I honestly don't know how he could ever top this experience. Usually we mingle throughout the resort all week, but this year we stayed most of our time at our room since we could want for nothing. We are very low key/low maintenance guests, but everyone always went out of their way to ensure we were enjoying ourselves. Once again Felix was pleasant face to greet us every morning, either at our swim out or on the beach, and fulfilled one of my bucket list items by getting fresh coconuts for me. Of course we can't go without mentioning Omar and Clara, we looked forward to every evening to seeing them at dinner. No matter where we dined, which was usually with them, they made sure we were taken care of. The food is, as always, amazing. We were a little disappointed that the resort had changed some of the menus but Omar always made sure we had our favorites and always had a little surprise for us each day or evening and any special requests. So thankful to them for our special Anniversary Dinner that was a complete surprise to us and so thoughfully planned. If anyone is ever hesitant to go here, don't be, as it truly is a beautiful resort. The beach is expansive, the amenities are more than you could wish for, the food is delicious and has a great variety, the staff is beyond accommodating and welcoming. We are ready to return as soon as possible. We love this resort and are looking forward to our fourth year in a row. This resort has a special place in our hearts and can't wait to see everyone again. Read less
