Friends & Couples Trip
6 friends and I stayed here for a week this August! We were so blown away by the service of the wait staff by the pool and how we were treated like royalty. - The Spa is soo nice! We took advantage of our hydrotherapy sessions! The Sauna, Steam Room and cycles of water massages were so relaxing and a great detox. - Drinks from the bar all tasted excellent - Service in Oceana was spotty but the other restaurants had great service - Our room was located really near to the pool and that was SO convenient when we spent the days there and could easily access our room from the back door. - Through a friend’s travel membership we got the Preferred Service and personally I think it’s worth it! Our Butler Elvis was excellent in helping us get into restaurants as a large group and giving us helpful tips about things to do and who to talk to. The Preferred breakfast lounge was so quiet and the food was excellent. We also got 3 free hydrotherapy sessions. Well worth it! - We did the Saona Island Excursion through the Now Larimar hotel next door because it was nearly half the price that Secrets offered. That trip was just okay... a 1.5 hour bus ride to the other side of the island followed by a 2 hour boat ride to the island. Once we got to the island it was excellent! But the “snorkeling” wasn’t exactly what we expected and definitely didn’t expect that long of a boat ride. However, since we did book through the other hotel that shouldn’t be a reflection of Secrets. Their excursion was twice as expensive and we probably would’ve had a better experience. - Room Service was timely whenever we asked that something be done. - Would absolutely recommend this resort to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation.

The resort was very well kept (even while under renovations), associates are very helpful, pleasant and always smiling. Our room was very nice, housekeeping did a great job morning and night! Able to walk around entire grounds, not too big. Entertainment group did a great job and shows were very entertaining. Had dinner in the wine cellar and enjoyed very much, particularly our host Jose R!
Amazing Stay at Secrets
This was our 5th time to Punta Cana, and the first time staying at this resort. We were upgraded from the Now Larimer to Secrets Royal Beach for our anniversary and we’re given the swim-up pool room, all thanks to Reyes at reception. This resort was beautiful! The grounds were immaculate. The service we received from everyone was top-notch, the best we’ve experienced at a resort. Beach was beautiful with a little seaweed but we were still able to swim in the ocean everyday, it’s just the time of year for it. Always found shade at the beach after 10am. Pool was awesome. The buffet was great, we loved getting to sit outside for breakfast and dinner. The Barefoot Grill was awesome for lunch on the beach, they had fresh meat and fish they would grill for you upon order. Food was very good here. Went to the Hitmitsu, Seaside Grill, and Protofino for dinner. Tried the buffet at the Larimar which had an even bigger selection to choose from. Rooms were massive and clean. Beds very comfortable and the a/c worked great. Entertainment at night was quite good, it’s outside in the middle of the resort which is enjoyable. Special shoutout to Alexis at the Now Larimar for giving us a little tour. He was super friendly and very knowledgeable. Also, our beach waiter Jose who never let the drinks go empty and our pool waiter Omar who was always around to take a drink order with a smile! Israel at the Portofino bar was entertaining and made great drinks! We would definetly return to this resort and look forward to trying other Secrets hotels in other countries as well. Thanks for an amazing stay! Service was 5 stars!
You can ignore the bad news about deaths in the DR. Also avoid Bahia resorts as it would appear they had purchased some tainted alcohol or food from a vendor causing it (in my opinion). Secrets is a beautiful resort and you have access to Now as well. The beachfront is nice and plenty of space to find loungers and umbrellas to lay under. Water activities are a bit pricey. Service is good overall. But certainly not a Ritz Carlton quality. Overall, recommend the location for a relaxing vacation with a spouse. Not a whole lot to do at night.
Great place to get away!
We stayed in the Preferred Club. Private pool and beach area for those who stayed at the Preferred Club. We were able to eat at any restaurant in the resort(s), I believe there were 14?? Had good shows every night. If you didn't like 1 show, go to the sister resort, they had one too! We were well taken care of by the employees, never once felt uncomfortable.
