The "all you can" experience is an interesting concept. Staff, room, overall visual experience and food were outstanding. Unfortunately, the elevators were out of commission, the room smelled of cleaning chemicals, alcoholic drinks had the bottle of booze "waved" over the top of the glass but not much booze ended up in the drink. Beer, wine, or straight shots are the only way to go if you want a REAL drink. The 4 hr. sales presentation was interesting, and low pressure. All questions and concerns were answered, and the sales rep was extremely polite and easy to speak with. Pools were clean, towel service wonderful and overall experience very good. Personally, my half day stay didn't "throw me to the ground" and make me write bad checks. Seems sometimes when we experience what it should be like we rate it as excellent. Secrets could do more to, "spoil" the guests with extras...small surprises....fresh flowers, chocolates on the pillow, a bottle of champagne the day BEFORE leaving, not just a glass upon arrival. I also had a very long wait time upon arriving before meeting three different people to get information and listening to the "time Share" presentation. Another feature many overlook is the Security of the entire property. It is truly outstanding. Now to import some beach sand from the Caribbean and "I'm IN".
