Our family (2 adults, 3 children ages 6, 13, 16) spent 8 days at Secret Bay's Zing Zing villa at the end March/beginning April of 2016. We do several vacations each year as a family, most to less-frequented destinations with upper-end accommodations, and we all found Secret Bay (and Dominica) to be one of our absolute favorites. This is not easily attained in a family with teenagers and much of the credit goes to the Secret Bay staff, who assisted us in putting together excursions and activities suited to each family member's tastes. Everything was as-advertised: near-perfection! From the booking and help arranging travel plans, to the check-in and orientation, to the accommodations and amenities, to arranging tours with hand-picked tour guides and drivers, to the villa attendants, concierge, cooks, maintenance personnel, management, everything was done professionally, personally, and with a smile. When we head back to Dominica, which we will, Secret Bay will be our only choice. Thanks again to all the wonderful folks at Secret Bay!!!

Room tip: Zing Zing is great for small family or two couples!

Secret bay is an exceptionally well run, top-notch resort. It's small scale lends intimacy and privacy while the service is second-to-none.

The views and surroundings are incredible and the activities on offer were quite enjoyable.

The food was all very well prepared and one last miscellaneous perk sticks in my mind: the place even *smells* very nice. Couldn't put my finger on it, but the whole property has a very pleasant woody/earthy aroma.

Room tip: You literally cannot go wrong

Thanks for the unique review III-T-R-A-V-E-L-III. I think this may be the first time we’re lauded for smelling so good! Love it!!! We just try everyday to make the Resort as welcoming and pleasant as possible for our guests. We oil our wood including the buildings and furniture; plus there are lots of fragrant trees around the property, not to mention the warm breeze that comes from both the ocean and mountain- guess it makes for a sensuous combination of a treat!

Glad you enjoyed your stay. Come back soon…

My husband and I stayed at Secret Bay for our honeymoon. We were pleasantly surprised to get upgraded to Zabucco III which was amazing. The villas are spacious with the private pools and great views of the private beach. The service and the food are truly amazing. Mertle our attendant anticipated all of needs and made our stay comfortable. The photos do not do the property justice!

We spent a wonderful 2 nights at Secret Bay back in March, staying in the Zing Zing villa. It was a great place to recharge and chill out. All the staff that we encountered were friendly and were genuinely attentive of all our needs. The villa was spacious and fully equipped. Happy memories and looking forward to hopefully staying there again in the future.

Secret Bay is a great place to getaway and recharge. The seclusion and serenity makes for a relaxing stay, the food is as nourishing as it is tasty and with all the fun options for adventure- your body will definitely be rejuvinated!

Do come again and stay longer- still so much more to do (or not :-))

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at Secret Bay about a month ago and we could not of imagined anything better. From the moment that we were picked up at the Airport, we were treated by the Secret Bay staff as if we were the only guests they had to wait on. We stayed in Zabuco II and just walking into the Villa took our breath away. The layout of the resort is amazing, it's very private with picturesque views everywhere. The staff helped us setup multiple excursions which were also amazing. The island is beautiful and full of culture. Everyone that we encountered while on Dominica was extremely friendly.
