This was our fourth visit to Secrets, one of our favourite destinations. However, due to the obvious cutbacks to the staff, menu items, buffet restrictions and the closure of the Seaside Grille, we will be considering other options in the future.
Can't wait to go Back!
This was my second trip to Secrets and this resort was better than ever. The food was amazing! We had a ocean view from our beautifully remodeled room. The staff was fantastic with great service. The beach was spotless and the cocktail service on the each was a huge plus. Our favorite places to dine were the Asian and Italian. The breakfast buffet was fantastic with fresh made to order omlettes and smoothies each morning. I can't for get to mention our favorite bartender Alvin.
Lovely, but not for foodies
This is a beautiful resort and the service is good. The grounds are lovely and there are many places to walk around and relax at the beach. The entertainment team is energetic and enjoyable at night with talented singers and dancers. It is really sad that the food is so awful. The restaurants were disappointing. We ate at Portifino and Oceana, and they were absolutely terrible. The food tasted like ten year old TV dinners. The Hibachi was just ok. Breakfast at the World Cafe is decent, be sure to do breakfast. The best thing I had to eat at the resort was grilled jerk chicken from the food cart at night. I am not a big drinker, but I had my fair share of tropical drinks during my stay and there might have been a "spray" of alcohol in each drink. Not a big deal for me, but a real drinker might not be happy. All in all a beautiful place, and the people that work there are pleasant. The food and beverage service could use an overhaul.
Spa Review from 12/5/19
This is exclusively for the SPA... Very poor experience matched by non-existent service. - No smiles or personable greeting while checking in - Zero attendant in male lockerroom, so had to get locker, sandals, etc myself... even signed myself onto the sheet with appointment time - No one to show proper way of doing hydro-therapy (don't waste the $35 they charge on this if not doing another service) - No cold towels outside of sauna for face - Had to check on time to ensure we were ready to be called for our massages... clock is also wrong in the hydro area, so can't even go off that - Had to help my self to the neck warmers and assist other guests with the same, since no one there to assist in waiting area. - Glasses were out, so no way of getting the cold flavored water - Went back to hot tub and sauna after massage to then get an attendant telling me they are ready for my appointment (they said an hour after I booked) - Placed non-married coworkers of different sexes, different last names, and different room numbers in same room for massages, so not able to de-robe and relax as is proper. Needless to say, this is the worst spa I've been to and travel internationally multiple times a year. Brittany was an amazing masseuse though, and want to commend her and give her and only her 5 stars.
the trip was great because of the wonderful driver that drove me around , but the one thing that would keep me from coming back to the secrets would be the cats running around the resort . the staff was great , but not a great variety of Jamaican food there at the resort.
