I love that the people that take care of you are so very friendly and fun to be around. They make the stay!! The resort is okay with only a couple issues. Some restaurants are not as good as other Secret resorts with the service being a bit slow and the food overcooked but most were good. And the "turn...

My beau and I went for an anniversary of sorts in the VIP section of the hotel and it couldn't have been better.

We love our beach waiters, Carlos and Manolo. They are the best, always making sure we have a drink in our hand. We have been coming here since they opened. Everyone treats us well, they are like family. It's beautiful here. The staff is always watching out for us. At breakfast Pepe and Alejandro are so good to us. Daniel,...

This resort is absolutely lovely from the moment you arrive...clearly high-end amenities throughout. We stayed in the Preferred Club so experienced impeccable service upon VIP check-in and throughout our week-long stay from the staff in this 71 room tower. Our suite was large and supplied everything we could have asked for. Resort staff is well-trained to please throughout the resort...

We've been coming to Secrets since they opened four years ago. Always fun; good food & drinks. At the beach I love our waiter, Carlos and Manolo. They take great care of us. I also love Nicholas, a great bartender I have known him for 10 years he was at another hotel.
