I just returned from a week long vacation with 22 close friends. We had all stayed at all inclusive resorts at one time or another, so we thought we knew what to expect. Were we surprised. We were a little worried about the food, since we live in ny....but i must say, there were no complaints. Was everyone happy about every meal? ....not exactly, but all in all the food was very good. We were skeptical about capers the italian restaurant, but the pasta dishes were very good and so was the italian bread....so we all walked out pretty satisfied. We hit every restaurant there...and while we liked some better (spice) than others(oceana) we never starved. We had a problem finding a good alcoholic drink at first....but once we tried different bars, we found that the Now Larimar lobby bar made the best ones. Carlos at the secrets lobby bar was also very friendly and fun, but all bars closed at 12 am except the bar in the disco which didn't have top shelf.
The resort was beautifully maintained. The rooms, grounds, and buffet were always clean. The beach grill was by far the best!!!! The staff was extremely friendly and accomodating. We dealt with Diana Martinez, who really went above and beyond to make our trip truly memorable. Thank you Diana!! Milky way at the pool was probably one of themost entertaining people in the whole resort.
We were a big group, and we were always together so we made our own party wherever we went, but this resort is definitely more on the quieter side. The NOW is definitely more lively if you want more entertainment by the pool but the flip side is lots of kids.
The beds were really comfy and the room came with robes, so if you don't find a robe in your room, call the front desk and request one.
All in all....it was a great trip with great friends and Secrets made it more special.
