Well, where should I begin? I booked a 2 week stay at Secrets with Orbitz and we were supposed to have an ocean view room, what we got was a pool view room. The room was nice however and most all of the staff was friendly. Got heckled everytime we were trying to relax o the beach by vendors trying to sell us on some sort of excursion and when we did decided on something to do we went through the consierge and we got hosed there. We booked a snorkel trip and a horse back trip two seperate days and paid for them individually, first the horse back trip the guy that picked us up decided to tip himself before we even went on the ride, and the snorkel trip was the speed boat/ snorkel and it was a joke, big waves, a guide that was driking on the job and his buddy trying to sell us a video of the snorkel trip which was annoying. There was not an atm in close proximity and when I did find one it was pesos only which the exchange rate is less in the resort compound. Finally the food, the food was some of the worst food we have ever eaten, both my wife and I got sick a couple of different times and between the two of us loss 20 lbs. because we couldn't eat and when we did it wouldn't stay if you know what I mean.
