This is more of a technical review than I'd usually write, but all in all had a very nice time and can't wait to go back in 2012 when upgrades are complete at this luxury hotel. I booked with Fox World Travel after my travel agent visited there and recommended I spend half my vacation here and half at the... More

Structures, food, view, golf, and staff were excellent. Mosquitos, flies in restaurants,no hot water for days, no maps of Cap Cana or Dominican Republic, no wash rags for 2 days after they took them, no glasses for 2 days after they took them, and empty casino where minimum bet was $10. Had to be 100 degrees each day although nightly... More

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful 4 day vacation to Secrets. We arrived on a Tuesday and were told that the hotel only had about 80 other people staying (capacity is around 300 I think) so we were happily surprised! The pools were not crowded- we had one pool to ourselves most of the time- as most... More

The resort met all of our needs: great beach, great pools - there were several, great food and great service. The rooms were spacious with a great sitting area and balcony overlooking the beach. Having complimentary access to the minibar was a plus too. I usually expect with all i-inclusives to have many buffets, but Secrets Sanctuary offered food to... More

First, there is a lot to like about Secrets Sanctuary. As long as we were not in our room, we enjoyed many aspects of the resort: Incredible setting with beautiful grounds and lovely rooms (but see below). Nice beach in front of the resort, but small. A short walk to the left of the resort showcases a gorgeous, nearly deserted... More

My husband and I spent the first week of May at this resort. I echo what everyone else is saying about the service. Everyone bent over backwards to make sure you were happy and had what you needed. There was no problem communicating with the staff in general. However, it might be fun to learn a little Spanish before you... More

We just returned from a short four day visit to Secrets Sanctuary Cap Cana. I will post a more detailed review with pictures shortly. But I wanted to see if anyone considering this resort had any questions so that I can include answers in my review. Tripadvisor was invaluable to helping us choose Secrets and I want to make sure...

No jet skis close into the beach, no parasailing, no water-skiing and no bananas laden with loud people begin pulled by a motorboat. Just a lovely beach, 5 pools, excellent food ( a variety for all tastes), restful accommodations and a very friendly and thoughtful staff. I guess you can gather by now that we loved this resort. I have... More
