This was our first time in the DR and our first time staying at a secrets resort. Overall we were very happy with our stay. We went for our honeymoon and when we arrived everything was waiting for us. After we got settled into our wonderful room overlooking the ocean (and after having a long day of traveling) we wanted to go swimming in their wonderful lazy river but we were told there was no swimming after 7 due to cleaning. This was a bummer--Maybe even having it open till 10 or 11--7 was way to early!! But the pool was awesome!! Room service was good but not a ton of choices but it did come fast and all the servers were great!! All the food and restaurants of the resort were good and service was good, our only complaint would be that the servers were not very happy to give us more ice and especially soda. Every time we asked for either it took at least 20minutes at all restaurants. The service at the pool and beach were excellent and all the bars were great. Special thanks to Angel--he was our guy and made sure we always had a drink!!! We loved that we could use the Now Lamiar restaurants and pools and they did an excellent job of making sure only our hotel patrons were allowed in our pools (ie no kids). There were many options for food which was nice. And the place was immaculately cleaned! They always stocked your mini fridge which was great, and the beds were super comfy! The entertainment was good too and they had many options for all ages! The 2 excursions we went on were great except everyone who was working wanted money and were very rude about getting a tip. I don't like to be on vacation and workers who I am already paying hound you for a tip. This was not the case at the resort although it is a little confusing if you are supposed to tip the staff at an all inclusive, some people did and others didn't! We tipped for excellent service! We also used the Spa which was amazing!
This was our first experience at a chain all inclusive and we would highly recommend it!!
