My husband and I did a split stay of Secrets Sanctuary Cap Cana and Zoetry for our annual anniversary reconnect time. We stayed five nights at each resort and I will solely elaborate on Zoetry for this review. We are a couple in our late 30's who travel every October to a new 5 star adults only resort. I was concerned that Zoetry allows children but thankfully we had no issues whatsoever. There were two present during our stay but both were extraordinarily quiet.
As noted in many other reviews, Natalia, the general manager is very hospitable and very hands on. She works incredibly long hours and is always onsite to make sure everything is to your liking. We checked in very early (10am) and our room was ready. We stayed in the king swim out suite of room 2 which I loved. We were literally right next to the main convieniences of the resort. This includes the reception area, the coffee bar (say hi to Carmen who does and excellent job), billiards room, computer room, lobby bar, spa, gym, Olena restaurant and Amaya restaurant. We were roughly a 2-3 minute walk to the beach and Indigo restaurant. I didn't mind not being beach front b/c we wanted quiet and privacy which we received. The staff is truly amazing and you really feel as though they truly care about you and the experience you are given. We were able to really get to know them and learn about their families. You don't usually find that with most resorts.
The beach is gorgeous with plenty of palapas to go around. Food and drink service is offered. There is great snorkeling immediately upon entering the water so even if you are not a strong swimmer you can still enjoy it. There is a hobie cat and kayaks for use. Horseback riding is offered three times a week. You need to make a reservation ahead of time. Upon arriving back from your ride, they offer a bottle of rum and a cd with your picture on both for $25. The restaurants all do a great job. Lobster was frequently on the menu at no surcharge. They offer a beach grill night which is a must do. It rivals an elegant outdoor wedding reception. I had room service for breakfast daily and it was always quick and hot. Laundry service is included and we used it three times with no issues. I loved the aspect of free international calls since we had two little ones at home with the grandparents. We saw the helicopter landing on the beach a few times and it was a site. I would absolutely take advantage of that in the future.
The ladies at the spa did an outstanding job. We had massages twice during our stay with a total of 4 different ladies.
We received a lovely surprise of a cake with Happy Anniversary written on it and were seranaded while we ate at Amaya. I'm hard to surprise, but that did the trick.
There are mosquitos present, however, we purchased the deep woods deet at Target and used on one dab on each wrist and ankle per day and had NO BITES. Those that were using the OFF supplied in the room which only has 5% deet where getting bit.
There are plenty of geckos and frogs everywhere so if you have a huge aversion or fear this may not be the place for you but for everyone else the place is truly amazing!
My husband and I both agreed this was the most relaxed we have ever left on vacation and we will return.
Natalia, hope to see you sooner than later!
