We just returned from 2 weeks at Secrets. This was our 3rd visit in 3 years and we have to say, this place just gets better and better.
Overall our travel experience was as smooth as could be. We traveled with Sunwing Vacations and our flight was on time and easy (get the Elite Plus upgrade - well worth the extra couple of bucks). On arrival in Punta Cana we were met by the driver from Gobecon (we booked private transfers and weeks worth of internet - again, well worth the money). Our private transport took us right to the resort in a brand new vehicle - great not to have to sit thru the drop off points at the other resorts before we got where we were going.
Check in at Secrets was quick and easy and we were in our room within 20 mins of arriving, and on the beach with a drink and BBQ lunch 15 mins after that!
We chose the option of the swim up room again - they are definitely the rooms to go for - and the room was ready, clean and fully stocked (mini bar, towels etc) right from the start.
The staff at Secrets are some of the best you will ever encounter, nothing is too much trouble. To try and single any out is really hard, but some of the superstars are:
Pool wait staff - Angel. Always smiling, happy and entertaining - and kept us in drinks for the whole 2 weeks.
Entertainment staff - Akon, Charlie Brown, Karen & Milky Way. These guys work their butts off all day long - amazing.
Food on our trip last year was great, and this trip we think was even better. We only used the restaurants on the Secrets side but every meal was great. Steaks at the Seaside Grill, seafood at Oceana, sushi at Gohan and a great buffet at La Riviera - not to mention the lunch BBQ on the beach at the Barefoot Grill (chicken is to die for).
Entertainment was as good as last year - not over the top but something every night. From just music from the house band to full shows there is something going on in the plaza every night.
Overall another great trip to Secrets and we are already talking about making it 4 in a row next year.
