Travelled to this resort with my parents and sister for a quick family getaway. This is what we thought of our stay. Firstly, the lobby and grounds are beautiful. We were promptly welcomed with drinks and towels to refresh ourselves. Check in was I initially very quick and our rooms were ready, but we soon learned why the rooms were available… They are doing construction on the room block our rooms were in. They assured us it was only from 9-5 but they definitely worked a lot later than that. We promptly went to request new rooms. Our request was met, one room was available immediately. My sister and I had to wait until the next day to get our new room. We were very tired after our travel day so we went to bed early. They had a band playing in the bar directly beneath the room and it was like we were in the bar it was so loud. The food was hit and miss, we loved the Asian restaurant, the breakfast buffet was excellent and the Italian was nice too. The French was a let down, the pool snacks were terrible and the seafood restaurant was just okay. We went to the Mediterranean restaurant at Dreams next door and it was also great. Service was excellent all around, very friendly polite staff. The staff working the pool and serving were fantastic, and worked really hard. Nightlife was a little lacking, everywhere just seemed kind of dead. There was literally 8 people in the theatre one night for the show. Having some of the bars and restaurants separate and a golf cart ride away meant there wasn’t a real central place to gather at night. A few areas where we could sit out at night needed some work. Tired furniture that was missing pillows, no tables etc .There was also a ton of weddings and corporate events while we were there. The beach was beautiful, much nicer than some other hotels down in the Mayan riviera. Little to no seaweed, beautiful white sand and lots of space to go for walks. I think they need a few more rows of beach chairs, there wasn’t many. The pool is also beautiful, we didn’t find the towel game too bad. We were up and down by 7:30 and grabbed spots easily. Some people came later and still found spots. Overall it’s a beautiful resort with great service, that is just in need of a bit of an update. Read less

Overall, great experience! Ernesto was wonderful! He was very friendly and helpful. We love our bracelets that he made us. Caesar and Willie were very attentive to our needs and our drinks were never empty. The silent dance was one of our favorite night activities!

We came to secrets for our wedding, and it was incredible! The staff was so friendly and attentive. Our room was amazing. We’d like to specifically mention Omar who helped us with bags, Isela who was our house keeper, and Juan who was our go-to bar tender at the beach. He would also walk to our ocean front room and serve us at our private pool.… Read more

The ocean and beach were free of any seaweed on most days. The resort picks up seaweed on a daily basis although this area is known for a mostly sargassum free environment - nice! The food overall was good and we enjoyed the Portofino and Bordeaux restaurants. Artemio at the Bordeaux provided excellent service. The resort is located in a gated community so we felt safe at all times. Read less

Wonderful Staff Beautiful Setting. The staff makes sure your every need is covered! Very quiet rooms so easy to sleep. Lots to do when you’ve had enough sun! We went on bike rides, snorkeling trip, swam with dolphins, and cave exploring! Never a dull moment
