My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Secrets from 11/3-11/10/03.
Upon arrival, we were whisked away for our private check-in with the Excellence Club. We were shown to our room.. the wrong room. We explained to the woman who brought us to the room, that we paid for an ocean-view with a balcony not a pool-side with a patio. She said she'd speak with the front desk and return to us shortly. Well, two phone calls, one trip to the front desk and two hours later... we were finally moved into the correct room. In the mean time, we basically stood in the first room, afraid to "mess anything up". Our luggage arrived to us three hours after arriving.... We stocked that experience up to it's a busy resort, with a lot of people... no big deal. Until the next day. The food we found out was poison. We had one full day of "fun". Enjoying the beach and pool. We awoke the following day, deadly ill. Not too sure what we ate the previous day, but we were sick the entire honeymoon. Too sick to venture far from our room. Not the ideal way to spend a honeymoon. We did not eat another thing until we arrived back in the states. It took a trip to our family doctor and two antibiotics to feel better. Overall, it took two weeks to get whatever we had out of our system. We have never been so sick in our lives!!!!
Please be careful of everything you eat. It could be poor food handling.. not too sure. We will be going to Aruba within the next few months, to have a proper honeymoon. We were completely disappointed. We had looked forward to our honeymoon for so long... and it was a disaster.
