I had booked the trip as a last minute surprise getaway for my boyfriend and me. I had no prior knowledge about Dominica and had booked the trip solely from the great reviews I had read about Secret Bay—it couldn’t have been a more perfect trip. Anastasia was wonderful and had helped me throughout the entire process from the booking, to dining selections, planning excursions, and just ensuring the entire trip was more than I could have ever asked for. We stayed in the Zambuco Villa which was picturesque, clean, updated, and simply beautiful. The villas are organized in a way that allow privacy and serenity, while providing breathtaking views from every direction. The island as a whole was an untouched paradise. The staff helped us plan our expeditions for the weekend, and recommended great local places for dining and exploring. Ryan, our favorite cab driver, took us throughout the island and was extremely knowledgeable about its history, culture, and nature. The staff at Secret Bay was incredibly friendly and accommodating to our every need. It was the perfect medley of adventure and relaxation. In the short three days we were there, we went on a private boat charter, kayaked the Bay, hiked a few waterfalls, snorkeled Champagne Reef, toured the capital, and lounged on the beaches. Secret Bay made sure we had food and drinks for every day’s excursion along with any equipment we would need. All in all, we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful experience. Our retreat to Secret Bay was better than any hotel or resort I’ve ever stayed at; it felt much more authentic and adaptable to our every need. I would recommend this vacation to anyone, as long as they’re staying at Secret Bay. We cannot wait to be back!
