My husband and I had a GREAT honeymoon at Secrets and were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful the resort was. The food was excellent as was the service. The hotel staff couldn't have been more friendly. The nightly shows were good entertainment and an easy way to meet people. Most of the visitors there are from the United States with just a few people from other countries.
The only money you will need is a bunch of ones--$75 should take care of a week (American dollars, do not trade your money) for tips or if you want to shop, everything else is included. Tip the staff, they depend on it.
I'm trying not to sound too obnoxious, but sometimes when I read these posts, I wonder, does this person really know what good food tastes like? Well, I can tell you I have lived and traveled to many places and eaten at many fine restaurants, and I loved this food! They have a good mixture of casual and formal restaurants. The Seaside Grill, Oceana and Bordeaux restaurants are the best for dinner. Try the grilled lobster tail at the Seaside Grill, it was DIVINE.
We had a wonderful time and would go back in a heartbeat.
Just a couple of warnings:
1. Don't go on the trip to the small lagoon-like island south of DR (begins with an "S" can't remember the name). It took all day and we were the only English speaking people on the whole trip (felt very out of place)
2. The beach is not a calm beach, but the waves aren't too high. Just don't expect a lagoon.
