Pros - great service, very clean, many a-la-carte restaurants in which you didn’t need a reservation in order to eat, very good food generally, great pools with plenty of shade and loungers, hard-working afternoon entertainment staff, pool aerobics every morning, very nice air conditioned junior suites with excellent beds and large bathrooms, great bartenders with a good selection of bar drinks, excellent gardens and groundskeeping, shuttle access to all the restaurants and bars at the Dreams Resort next door. Cons - beach was difficult to access from pool area and lacked natural shade, the gym, main lobby, theatre, some bars, and most of the restaurants required taking a shuttle as they were located quite a distance away from the rooms and pool area, the main buffet at the Secrets resort is not open for dinner so you have to go to Dreams if you want buffet dining, the Chilean red house wine served everywhere was not very good, salt and pepper seem to be a precious commodity at this resort as you always have to share the few sets available with all the other people eating and make a special request for them from one of the servers, the burgers at the pool barbecue were frequently undercooked and far too rare for hamburger meat, the official music around the pool was sometimes much louder than it needed to be and sometimes certain guests were allowed to “inflict” their choice of music on other guests by blasting it out of large speakers that they brought to the pool. Since I have a chronic lung disease, one of the reasons we chose this resort was because it was advertised as “non-smoking” but we did smell and see smoking being done around the pool area with no observable consequences.

This resort was very pretty, and the staff were very attentive. The pools were great and the beach was clean and groomed. The food was okay, could use a little improvement, but this is typical for all inclusive food.

Drinks were good. Pool and staff excellent. Quality of food very poor for the $ paid. Entertainment was horrible. Went to see a comedy show and saw a fellow play with a yo-yo for 10 minutes. Entire show was about 15-20 minutes long. We actually expected to see someone else on stage after him.
