My husband and I and 2 of our friends just returned from a wonderful week at Secrets Royal Beach! The resort was beautiful the groundskeepers did such a wonderful job making sure everything was pristine! Drinks were a little sweet but if you ask for a "little more rum" they are more than happy to jazz it up a bit! :-) Also make sure you bring a lot of singles because they won't give you any change.
The rooms were very nice! They were air conditioned and spacious. The bathroom shower was great and the outside tub was nice. Beds were VERY comfortable.
Food was good. The buffet had a ton of options and everything tasted good. I'm agreeing with everyone else and say the beachside grill was overall the BEST part of the food! Best burgers and fresh mahi mahi! Capers, at Now, was delicious and also the sushi place Gohan was FABULOUS!!! The Now side had more options so definitely check out that side.
The spa was nice. But my massage was just average. My husband and our friend went on a deep sea fishing trip that they booked through Seapro, and they did not enjoy it. A group booked a trip last minute to go fishing and they let them get on the nice big boat while my husband and the rest of the group had to get on the crappy small boat. The guides were young and unprofessional and didn't let them bait or reel in anything they caught. So be weary of that.
Our most favorite part was the beach and how nice it was. Service was great down there! Also they had so many activities so you don't get bored. There was volleyball, salsa dancing, team building games, and water aerobics just to name a few.
And lastly the MOST favorite part were the staff! EVERYONE was wonderful! We wish we could remember everyones names to tell them how much we love them and appreciate how wonderful they made the trip. New York, Usher, Mickey Mouse, and Akon were so awesome!! They helped everyone have fun ALL DAY! These guys did not stop! They were wonderful!
You don't have to tip any of the bartenders or servers, its not required. But they work their butts off to make sure you have a great time. So please people, tip these guys.
We will definitely be back and cannot wait!!!!
