    The transportation needed to go to restaurants or to the pool or anywhere on site was very slow and frustrating. The food was not as good as other secrets. All staff members were nice but the waiting around for them including room service was a disappointment

  • 6.0.Good

    This was our first stay at a secrets hotel. We had very high expections from reviews from people whom stayed at Secret resorts. We stayed in a perferred level ocean view room. The room was very clean and housekeeping did a great job of cleaning the room daily. However, the bedding was old and worn, the towels were rough and the robes old and ratty. The shower is very small. The room was close to all the restaurants and did have a beautiful view . We stayed in room 104. The food was average at best. The room service menu had more options than the restaurants. The seaside grill for breakfast served us burned pancakes and runny eggs. The italian restaurant was very good. All of the staff were friendly and exceptional. Especially the entertainment group. However, The bartenders at the pool bar seemed like they did not want to be there. We walked thru the spa and it was very old. Did not seem like a spa at a five star resort.

    Not a typical Secrets Resort experience. Been to 6 other Secrets and all have been phenomenal except this one. This property used to be a Hilton and is really old. Greetings during arrival was not a typical warm welcome with a drink and damp cloth...seemed very unorganized. Food was not great and not much to choose from. The resort app would say bars close at 1am but they shut them down at 10:50pm with many many guests still wanting more drinks. Only highlight of the resort were the great bartenders Arturo and Guillermo who made the best drinks and were always friendly.

    Very nice hotel. Great amenities and nice staff with great service. I think this is the best you can get for an all inclusive. I am not a fan of all inclusives but based on recommendations I tried this one and liked very much. Food is good but not amazing. I recommend it and would come back.

    We had an amazing time at this resort. The rooms are a little dated but the staff, and the location was amazing. My only complaint is that at the main pool there was zero music playing. They have another pool that was supposed to be the quiet pool, but the main pool really needed some speakers and music
