The hotel

Unlimited-Luxury® at the Secrets means just that – it’s unlimited! Not only are guest rooms and suites second to none with elegant furnishings, a complimentary mini-bar and much more, there’s a plethora of world-class amenities at your disposal too. As well as all the usual water sports, there are dry land activities galore and a gorgeous lazy-river style swimming pool to enjoy. Dance classes are on the agenda and Spanish classes too as well as regular evening entertainment with live music so you can practise those salsa and merengue moves! No visit to Secrets would be complete with a trip to the spa, you’re on holiday so spoil yourself with a seaweed wrap or an aromatherapy massage. The hotel is part of the 'Sip, Savour & See' Dining Experience programme, which means you can visit other local resorts and see what culinary delights they have to offer. But before you do, bear in mind, you’ve plenty of options on your doorstep, no reservation required. Feast on Sushi at the Gohan or seafood at Oceana.

We stayed here last October when the resort was not at full capacity and enjoyed it so decided to come back for a full week this May. The resort was definitely at capacity with a large conference and several weddings going on but the service we experienced was still top-notch! Our butler, Julio, kept us aware of what was going on with the large groups each night so we could take that into consideration for our dinner plans and made reservations for our small group to avoid long lines. He was amazing-checking in with us multiple times a day to make sure everything was fine with our room and if we needed anything. Chef Manuel remembered us from our previous visit and created some wonderful special dinners for us! We loved Bordeaux, Bluewater Grill, and Olio. I wish I could remember all of the servers names, everyone was great, but special thanks to the sommeliers Hector, Francisco, and Ramon C for taking great care of us! We did go over to Dreams twice for dinner- once to Portofino which was OK, the calzones were fantastic. The 2nd time we did the wine cellar there ordering from the Oceana menu and were not impressed. Despite the resort being so busy, we managed to find a corner of the smaller preferred pool to call our own and spent most of the week there with amazing service from Ramon and Margarita. They are wonderful, warm people that we really enjoyed getting to know. Every evening before dinner we'd meet in the preferred club by the beach where Maximo would make us amazing cocktails and entertain us while he was at it! We had met Maximo years ago at SCC so was wonderful to "find" him again! The nighttime entertainment at this resort is very good compared to some others and love how the showtime bar and stage are right by the restaurants. We went to the sports bar several nights to catch playoff games which was fun and some in our group enjoyed the casino as well. The beach here is beautiful and we didn't notice much of a seaweed problem but they are diligent about cleaning up what does come in. We stayed in a Master Suite Oceanfront on the 3rd floor which had amazing views and a full-size hot tub on the balcony which was very nice but, for us, we missed having our own pool/swimout. Overall had a wonderful stay and will be back again! Read less

My husband and I went from May 1st through the 8th for our belated honeymoon. Once we arrived, they offered for us to upgrade to the "Preferred" services for a discount and I have to say I'm glad we did! We had a junior suite with a tropical view and the room was spotless and spacious. It came with a well-stocked mini fridge, wonderful bathroom and even a little patio for bringing in the quiet sunrise. Housekeeping staff was wonderful and came by at least 3 times a day that I observed. Overall the resort was well-kept, staff was friendly and their service was top-tier. Special shout-out goes to our butler Will, and bartenders Kelvin in the preferred lobby lounge and Antonio Banderas, Rosa, La Chiqui, and Ruddy at the preferred club swim up bar. My husband and I found ourselves making the most of the preferred club areas, especially as the chairs by the main pool seemed to fill up quickly. But both areas were beautiful, overlooking the pristine beach. Chairs by the beach seemed plentiful and the water was refreshing. The main reason I give 4 stars is the food. Overall, food was good. That being said, nothing was outstanding or worth writing home about. Service was wonderful, there was a decent enough selection of what to eat. The Asian food came to be a disappointment for the both of us, and I noticed that the wait time to get dinner was upwards of an hour if you didn't feel like going to the buffet. Most often, we found ourselves returning to Olio's, which seemed to have the best food onsite. Read less
