TripAdvisor Traveller Reviews
Private location on calm bay
Hampm57, Norrkoping, Sweden
Sun Aug 12 10:05:35 EDT 2018
A main income in Huatulco is tourism, and it’s beaches are littered with timeshares, villas and all inclusive resorts. This is one of the top resorts, catering to adults and preferrably ones travelling within the same chain. It sprawls right in front of Bahia de Conejos, a small quiet bay with little swells, and is more private than many other resorts. Plenty of staff, and you don’t have to do much for yourself if you don’t want to. The restaurnts are fairly standard, somewhat underspiced and mainstreamed to suit all palates. However, this means the fare is bland and a bit uninspired, more Taco Bell and Long John Silver than the dress codes of long pants and collared shirts imply. Drinks are more inventive, but don’t expect anything beyond mediocre lager if you are a beerenthusiast. No reservations are needed to eat, and on the off season ( summer) a big chunk of guests are late dining Mexicans. Roomservice is included, and we found breakfast in bed was far nicer than anything else on offer. No bracelets are needed, thankfully and for a large resort, you’ll find quiet if you want it, one pool is reserved for swimming and lounging only! Do opt for a room with an oceanview! It covers the whole bay and the swimout rooms don’t afford a view like that! Beds are on the hard side, there is a pillowmenu and the a/c is good! The spa is prohibitively expensive and does not merit the fees, the gym basic but doable. Beware of mosquitoes in the rainy season!

Fabulous hotel with few service issues
Peponio, Oslo, Norway
Sat Aug 11 23:49:18 EDT 2018
I first called Secrets in April 2018 to quote a rate for a three day stay at the end of July. I got a rate confirmation by the phone and we agreed on having it confirmed by e-mail so I could send my credit card details. When the e-mail come the rate was 33% higher. I called the reservation agent and she informed me that she had given me the wrong rate - low vs high season issues. She wouldn't respect the rate as originally agreed on and I hung up the phone with a sour taste in my mouth. Two days later I receive a new e-mail where Secrets confirms the rate as originally quoted and apologizes for the "misunderstanding". We arrive the hotel by 10 am, aware that check in time is not until 3 pm but hoping by courtesy the room will be released early -after all people are checking out latest at 12. Well, that doesn't happen and we don't get the room until one minute before 3 - they kept us 5 hours just sitting by the reception waiting - really boring and unnecessary as we could have been offered to change clothes and go to the beach. Otherwise this is absolutely a great property and great destination. The hotel is gorgeous and the restaurant staff is really trying hard to provide good and friendly service. Food is at a good level considering that all-inclusive has never been about high quality. I was happily surprised by the house wine from Chile. Breakfast at the Market was delicious - Mexican buffet, with lots of American choices, simply the best. Good Asian food too, and a steak house outside under a straw roof with a fantastic ocean view, though steak could have been grilled a little better - we asked for medium rare and it was served well-done. Sent it back once and came back medium so we ate it like that. The night was perfect, good atmosphere, the red wine was good, so the overall experience was good. Big and comfortable rooms, all with balcony and beach view, some with private pool. I would definitely go back to Secrets. I give it a 4 star rating due to issues at reservation desk and check-in.

This is NOT a luxury place
AAppa, South America

The most important part is clarifying that this hotel is NOT a luxury place as they try to sell it. This is a three and a half to four stars hotel. Even thought it is only seven years old (as they told me) there are a lot of parts that are in bad repair. In photos the place looked much better than the real thing. There is anything in this hotels that resembles luxury. If this place would have been a Holiday Inn brand, I will say it’s ok, but not what expected. I wasn’t expecting going to a Holiday Inn. The all inclusive food wasn’t bad. The bad part is that they sell it as they have 7 restaurants, from which during my three nights/four days stay, three of the restaurants weren’t open (Italian, Sea Food or Mexican). I felt cheated, if you pay for something, you want everything working and giving you the expected service. The gym isn’t good. Is not complete, too small and rusted. Not a nice place to be at. The Spa is overpriced for that type of cheap hotel style. Is $200 US Dollars for a regular massage. The beach and sea I didn’t like it. The sand and the water is all brown, no point of comparison with Caribbean’s white sands and turquoise water. In general terms, the hotel decor is not nice, not classy at all. Is the usual “all inclusive bad reputation” style.

AMAZING VIEWS!

This was our first stay in a secrets resort. The resort was beautiul over looking the ocean, i would recommend upgrading a getting a jacuzzi on your balcony we utilized it everynight., not private by anymeans but with little imagination and some towels we made it private enough for us. The resurants were great especially Cin Cin and the bordeux. Coffee shop to die for awesome pastrys, coffees of anykind etc. If you are looking for a resort that you can get into the ocean this wasnt possile unless you a olympic swimmer very rough and big waves. We had a relaxing time and enjoyed our stay. We loved it but as far as going back probably not!

Decline in food and service
SUPO11,

Stayed at Secrets Huatulco in December 2017 and December 2016. We also stayed in Dec. 2012. There was a huge decline in food and service from 2016. We have travelled to Secrets Akumal (July 2018 and March 2018), Secrets Maroma (6 times) and Secrets The Vine (3 times). (We do not belong to the VIP/Timeshare Program). Secrets Huatulco does not compare to these other Secrets resorts. A few more comments: ~Amazing weather in December. Sunny and hot every day. Evenings are warm sometimes even hot. ~Timeshare people act like they're Secrets staff - best to avoid them. You can get the resort coupons without listening to their sales pitch. ~Preferred Club is small and not worth the expense at Secrets Huatulco. They need a larger lounge with better seating and bar service. Preferred Club Guests should have the option to have breakfast in a special area/restaurant like at other Secrets. ~Pool Bars should be more equipped and open earlier - On more than one occasion they did not have bottled water; had to wait. Could not get a sparkling water with lime sometimes. Was told "Not open yet". ~Pool Conceirge and Pool boys needed! All the other resorts we have stayed at have fantastic pool boys to help find chairs and lay towels. ~Too many guests blasting their mini-speakers by the pool and on balconies. Secrets must enforce the rules. ~Service in the restaurants was inconsistent. One night we were completely forgotten about at the French restaurant. ~House-keeping and Turn-down Service was excellent! Secrets Huatulco has such potential but they are missing a lot of the "extras" that we enjoy and quite frankly, pay for. Hopefully they will make improvements.
