    Would not return

    The hotel is in dire need of repair nd updating. There are non guests areas that were being used for trash and debris which led to smells. On a daily basis we had to get with the concierge to have our room either cleaned or restocked. The pool was dirty and never saw anybody doing any maintenance.

    PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING!! Hyatt has taken over and this is NOT the same place!! My family has been going to Secrets for over 10 years. We book the Preferred Area, Oceanfront, which on all 7 or 8 sites I checked, was the top selection. I book this because after surgery on my ankle, it’s painful to climb stairs and this selection has, in the past, been lower level upon request (I’m 74). However, when we arrived, I was told that we’d have to pay extra to get lower level. I asked to speak to the reservations manager and he said unless we paid more, they wouldn’t give us the downstairs floor even though this is Oceanfront. He explained that they’d added something called “Beachfront”for the lower level rooms, which was new and not on any sites I’d seen!!! This was a few days after Beryl and there were not many people there, so there WAS availability. THEN, we had to wait till 4 o’clock to get a room AND the power was out, so it was sweltering!!! No comping anything for that. And although the staff were working tirelessly, there weren’t enough to get the place back in shape after the hurricane. We, for days, had to step over dead and downed palms and plants on the walkways. We only had internet service once briefly one morning and off and on on the last day. We also lost power off and on. Now, the food: think Shoney’s on vacation. No guacamole or avocados the whole 9 days. No longer any cilantro in anything. It’s very bland, very repetitive food. There is only one restaurant with a.c. at night and the menu never changed, with the selection being limited. The meat is overprocessed and tasteless. The “French” and “Asian” restaurants are a joke. Warm vichyssoise?? Everything always has 2 ingredients as sides: potatoes and carrots. That’s it. Why can’t they just do good, wholesome Mexican food of different regions? I’ve lived in Mexico and each region has a different, delicious cuisine. The flies were so bad at breakfast that you had to eat and swat at the same time. C’mon. Get some of those cheap Temu fly fans. Also, there are now only a scattering of umbrellas, so shade by the water is hard to come by. Secrets used to have the beach cleaned and the cleaned cushions out on the chaise loungers every morning. Now you have to find your own and they’re often wet from a previous night’s shower. They are certainly full of sand. The beach towels were non existent for 2 days. We made a choice to never return. It’s too bad because we really loved Secrets. And they’ve lost good customers since we also would bring our children and their spouses and we book the upper end rooms. The only positive is the staff. They are hard working and unfailingly polite . Bye, Bye, Secrets! Hello subpar, very Americanized Hyatt.

    So excited for trip, so disappointed with experience

    Food was not good, variety was not good. All six in our group were sick at some point during the stay and we ate different things at different places so if doesn't seem likely that we all ate something bad, unless the food was bad in multiple areas. Also flies everywhere on the food in the buffet.

    No reservation on their books, yet they sure took my money immediately when I made it. We had to wait what seemed like forever in the heat in the lobby outside after traveling all day. Our bedspread had someone else’s blood on it which we didn’t notice u til the second day, so housekeeping did not see it or care to change it until we asked. There was moldy coffee in the coffee maker basket. Our phone stopped working the last two days, and we would have liked to order room service. Our toilet backed up frequently and would not flush. Our mini bar was not stocked until the third day, and the refrigerator did not keep drinks cold as they were barely less than room temperature. The restaurant employees were overworked and had too many tables to cover, so we did not get drink refills since they never came back after our food arrived.
