We really loved this place, the staff is very friendly, of course they are spanish speaking, but the front desk and concierge spoke a great English and even the more ancillary staff, such as the lifeguard and bartenders knew enough to make our stay wonderful. The pool is absolutely stunning and clean. We had a room on the 17th floor... More

The Secrets were closed for renovation and we were transferred to the Westin, Playa Bonita. All the employees were helpful except for the Unlimited Vacation Employees who were lost in this whole transaction once the... More

Decided to take a quick last minute trip to somewhere for the July 4th long weekend. Found a great package with flights/hotels and jumped on it. The grounds, pools, rooms and beach access to this hotel is awesome. Not much is said about the beach erosion/tide times, which leaves the beach completely devoid of water until about 2-3 pm and...

We stayed at one of the renewal suites and it was great. We hardly used the separate room but it was great to have so much space. The view was spectacular and the beach was better than expected. Weatherwise, it was difficult to see the sun, but its so warm, you enjoy relaxing at the swimming pools, specially if you... More

room: Excelente the service was good, especially got good service response from JOSHUA ANTON The buffet was ok. it can be better if added more food varieties. The people working in the hotel are very nice, the waiter service needs to be taken care of as too slow.

The hotel is beautiful, and all of the staff is so friendly, especially Maruquel, who was the one to check us into the hotel, as well as help us set up our spa appointments for me and my partner. She was very pendent of anything we needed during our stay.
