I rarely write reviews, but this place was exactly what we needed. Friendly staff, hotel was great, the property looked amazing. The food was good, although the jerked chicken cart was by far our favorite. The staff was exceptionally friendly, especially our favorite hostess, Lasonya Reid, Clive our breakfast waiter every morning, Osame from the hibachi grill, Marlando at the... More

We spent a week in late June 2014 for our anniversary. Chose the preferred status...without really knowing anything about it . So glad that we did so! Enjoyed proximity of continental breakfast, daily snack, and bar that was available all day and evening! At this location, we were a good 2 blocks from Wild Orchid end that housed many of... More

We came here on our honeymoon almost three years ago and absolutely loved it! We want to go back! We stayed for five nights and got to enjoy the beautiful weather in October. All of the staff was very friendly and welcoming. The pools were very nice and the bartenders a the swim up bar got to be good friends... More

My husband and I went here for our Honeymoon for a week. We were extremely happy with the hotel, staff, restaurant, and pools. It was the definition of paradise. The staff was so nice and genuine. There were 7 restaurants and we never had to wait to get a table. The food was amazing and had fast and excellent service.... More

This is your typical big American hotel in the Caribbean. Each room has a water view so don't believe your travel agent when they say you have to get an expensive room for a view. The restaurants are actually in the sister resort, which can be a walk. The beaches are a bit small and can be crowded. I gave... More

Overall I had a nice time. I give you the good and areas that need improvement. I didn't pay for it. I will try to be objective as possible. Because they want to keep you on the resort the activities and stores are quite expensive. You can leave the resort via taxi, if you choose to do this arrange this... More

This was the first time we flew straight into an all inclusive resort, normally we cruise. I must admit it was excellent from the time we were greeted at the door until the time we left they staff treated us as if we were the only ones there each and every day. No worries man!! I must give a great... More

This has been my 3rd time & I love it every time. The rooms are lovely, the most comfortable beds! The food has always been good & the staff (especially Kevin the supervisor at the front desk) are all amazing. The grounds are always clean, food always available. I've never had issues staying there except for an internet trouble this... More

Secrets was everything we expected and more. Unlike many all -inclusive resorts food and drink was plentiful and offered freely. Never felt like we were being rationed are limited with anything including alcohol. Connected to a sister resort that gives the option of a lively night or a quite night on the beach. Staff was always cheerful and accomodating. Club... More
