My first vacation in 7 years and I'm so elated that I chose this particular resort. Friendly staff, great property. They have an excellent entertainment team. Food was great. I definitely was able to get a great sense of relaxation. Many people there are repeat holidayers, and my name will be added to that list.

great beach and pool

Posted Sep 8, 2014
Pros: Beach, Pool and the Staff at the pool, restaurant, beach and room.
Cons: The Management needs to revise the rules for restaurant dress code quality of food and wine and provide top shell drinks for dinner.
The staff was excellent and the service they were ALLOWED to provide was wonderful. The food was OK at best. They need to change the rules for men's dress code for dinner. Everyone we talked to agreed that men should be able to wear nice shorts and a polo shirt and not long pants and closed dress shoes. We are on vacation and want to wear what we want. There were at least 6 or 7 places to eat,but not all were open every night. You couldn't make reservations from your room you had to go the front desk. Several restaurants did NOT have top shelf liquor. The wine in every restaurant tasted like vinegar. There were to many rules for many things. We had steak for lunch one day and the couple after us was told they were out of steak. Not true because they insisted and they were given steak. One of the couples in our group changed their room 3 times because of various things. We were a group of 6 couples and we all agreed that we would NEVER RETURN to this resort. The MANAGEMENT should understand that when people are on vacation that NO is not an option. They should do their best to accommodate their guests because without the paying guests there would not be any resort.

We had a fantastic time at the Secrets Royal Beach

Posted Sep 6, 2014
Location: Visit the nearby shopping malls and go para sailing, you will love it!
This was a wonderful vacation destination. The beach was awesome. The hotel staff was very friendly and enthusiastic. It is very safe here. Resort security keep peddlers from bothering you on the beach. They have a great entertainment staff. You get waited on like royalty. Even on the beach, servers bring drinks to your beach chair. Our room was kept clean and tidy. I can't say enough to thank everyone here for a fantastic vacation!

"Excellent" hotel. Up Dated, Friendly Staff.

Posted Aug 3, 2014
Pros: The Amazing river like Pool that stretched through the complex. You could find a private spot or swim to the pool bar for the fun.
Cons: The Lighting is poor, but romantic.
Location: Golf, Scuba, Zipline.
The experience at Secrets was excellent for my wife and I to celebrate our 26th anniversary. We stayed at the adults only part of a larger resort that allowed us to enjoy the peace and quiet of a couple friendly resort, that is right next door to the family part of the resort. We could visit the shops, pools and restaurants all over the resort. The food was much better than expected from the Buffet to the sit down spots. 24h Room service was included, courteously and promptly served. Small tipping is always appreciated but not necessary. The Butler service with the Preferred section was top notch. Great Bars.

Hard to communicate.

Posted Jul 29, 2014
We have stayed at several Secrets properties in the past and have always been happy. This resort is ok, but not what I have come to expect from Secrets. The staff was the biggest disappointment. Most didn't speak English. This usually isn't that big if a issue, but can become very difficult when trying to order food at night.

Friendly staff, Fantastic beach

Posted Jul 25, 2014
My daughter chose this resort to have her wedding. The staff were all very friendly and willing to please. We were there the third week in July. This is not their peak season so it was nice not to have to fight crowds. Because this resort is adults only there were fewer people still ( the sister hotel was much busier) so it was easy to find a cabana at the beach or space at the pool. There was an abundance of food and I thought it was very good. The fresh mangos were delish!! The only problem I had with my stay was our key didn't open our door a few times. It took the technicians a couple of tries to get it working properly, but the did fix the problem. I don't know if it was because of our door problem or not but our mini bar didn't get filled a few days. Overall though the rooms were nice. They were clean and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Awesome all-inclusive, exceeded all expecations

Posted Jul 21, 2014
Pros: The people were extremely friendly and the hotel was extremely nice.
Cons: None
Location: We used the hobbie cat every day through the water sports hut. We also booked a snorkel trip off the reef and had a great time.
After researching for many weeks my wife, another couple, and I decided to book this trip. We have and many people stay at a secrets resort and most of them had many good things to say. So, we booked the "preferred club" room and we were very happy that we did. We thought back and fourth between the swim up and the preferred club and I feel that we made the right choice. We had a large room with a fully stocked bar and an outside jacuzzi tub. Also, you get perks with breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You have a special area where you can eat and you also have a different menu than the rest of the resort. People were paying for a lobster dinner while we could eat grilled lobster for lunch every day. We had free internet, our own pool, and our own bar. The preferred club bar and swim up bar had top shelf drinks. The main pool bar had used bottom shelf alcohol with the drinks. The food was unbelievable! The only restaurant that you had to make reservations in was the Hibachi grill and it was definitely worth it. The entertainment staff put on great shows and did a great job getting people involved. Every day we spent the morning in the ocean and then at the pool in the afternoon. It was an awesome 5 days that we will surely remember.

Fabulous Mother and Daughter Trip!!!

Posted Jul 17, 2014
Pros: The staff was extremely friendly, the rooms were clean and nicely decorated, the restaurants had very good food and the hotel is very well maintained.
Cons: I do not have any recommendations for improvement.
Location: There are plenty of excursions to take advantage of at the hotel. My daughter and I did not leave the resort and our days were filled with plenty.
I took my 22 year old daughter to Punta Cana to celebrate her graduation from college. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The resort had excellent entertainment daily, nightly and had plenty of excursions available right at the resort. We went on a snorkeling tour and saw beautiful array of fish, we went kayaking and my daughter tried windsurfing. This was all available on the beach at the resort. We also visited the Spa twice during our stay, once for body wraps and the second time for pedicures and both experiences were great and very relaxing. The beach is just gorgeous and kept very clean. The clear water and white sands are just breath taking especially during the early morning sunrise. The Secrets Resort is definetely one that i would recommend and I will be going back again to experience it with my husband.

Relaxation in Paradise

Posted Jul 15, 2014
Cons: Housekeeping staff sometimes was too attentive. We learned after a few days that using the do not disturb sign was a good idea.
Secrets Royal Beach takes all-inclusive to the next level; we couldn't believe that even room-service was included! The staff were friendly and quick to anticipate needs. The most indicative of our experience occurred when a staff member was cleaning up around the pool and we tried to get out of his way because as my husband said he "was working". The staff member immediately responded, "no sir, you are on vacation". The beach was immaculate and the entertainment staff planned lots of activities on the beach and throughout the resort that could appeal to a variety of interests. Drinks and food were plentiful and varied. The a la carte restaurants included a variety of very tasty and well-prepared meals. We can't wait to go back!
