    Very nice..

    This all inclusive resort was amazing. We were celebrating my wife’s birthday and also our honeymoon so we had a perfect combination of romance, relaxation, and excursions! They have amstar in the lobby everyday to book tours, excursions, and shuttle buses. They also have many bars, pools, and activities to choose from!! They have taxi drivers on property that are on stand by. If you want to get off the resort I suggest you do it, the drivers do not leave you, and will check on you often! They will even walk you into stores alot of the time and stay with you. Another thing we loved is the club, desires. It was a great venue with seats and a dance floor, and a bar you can stand around. The music was awesome, they played both Jamaican, and American music. The drinks were awesome and they don’t seem to have a limit as long as you drink responsibly and aren’t being a nuisance lol. We really enjoyed our trip! I would just say avoid the lauded service, it’s a bit steep in expenses and they did mess up a few of our garments. The food was great and you may experience some stomach pains the first day just because they use all fresh ingredients and it will clean you out of our terrible chemical filled food!

    A weekend trip

    First off, I must say, the friendliness and genuine care of the staff was the best part of the stay. Minus a few, everyone, in all positions, were so kind and helpful every day. The resort was well maintained. Sure, there are some updates that could be made here and there, but it is well kept and clean. No issues with anything in the room. The drinks were average, nothing special, but good enough. The beach and pool were both lovely. The activities were great each night. The food is the biggest area for improvement. The specialty restaurants have great presentation, but the food itself is sub-par. If there was an effort to make actual authentic dishes for each restaurant, it would make me want to go back. The options are good enough for a 3 day stay, but anything longer, I'd want to eat elsewhere. Overall, it was a great stay at Secrets. I'm happy to have visited and had a good experience.
