After spending the first 4 nights of our vacation at the Hard Rock my wife and I moved to Secrets for the second half of our trip. This was a planned move and a good one. I really love the smaller resort feel and Secrets Royal Beach was just that.
The room was great. We got lucky and ended up in a corner room on the top floor. Unlike a lot of other resorts any room is close to everything.
The food was average to good, but I don't ever expect to much out of an all inclusive. We really liked the grill on the beach for lunch or just an afternoon snack. The sushi was pretty good as well.
The entertainment team was great. Milky Way and Akon were two of the best I have ever encountered. Everyday they were on the beach leading different activities and did it well. As far as evening entertainment goes it is limited. You do have the option to walk over to the Now and enjoy their entertainment.
The beach was not great, but was nice. They work hard to keep it clean and free of seaweed. We never had any problem finding a chair on the beach unless you want a palapa. If you want one plan an being on the beach by 8:00 to get one. The pool was about the same. The bar service at the pool and beach were excellent. They really work hard taking care of you.
We did not have any spa appointments, but did use the gym. It was probably the most disappointing thing at the resort. So, not really a big deal.
Overall I would definently recommend this resort. I have never had a bad experience at any Secrets resort.
