Believe it or not, although we travel alot Faisal is a newbie when it comes to the Caribbean. The only place he’s visited and that too like 4 times is Mexico. So you can imagine how I excited I got when we started planning a trip to Punta Cana. I had been to Punta Cana twice and I wanted to show him a good time:)
When deciding on what resort we wanted to stay at, it was an no brainer. We had heard so much about Secrets Resorts before and it was time to try it. Actually when we last visited Isle Mujeres, we had stayed at the Dreams Playa Mujeres, and had access to Secrets Resort which was next door and it was BEAUTIFUL, there were so many restaurant choices and many things to do including movies under the stars. That property was a newer one so it was super techy as well. Anyways in Punta Cana, we got to stay at the Secrets Royal Beach at a club level.
This all inclusive property was located just 30 minutes from the airport , amidst palm trees, lush vegetation and manicured gardens on the famous Bavaro beach. It’s a perfect resort to relax and unwind!
We went for 5 nights and really enjoyed ourselves. Here’s what we loved!
- THE POOL AND FOAM PARTIES. Don’t for one second think that just because this is is an all adults couples resort, it was boring. Comparatively to some of the other all adults resorts, we found this to be really fun- the pool scene was really happening and the swim up bar was massive. There were even 2 pool foam parties a week! We were actually pretty surprised because we didn’t expect it and but we had the best time- It was like a mini EDM festival.
- THE BEACH- It was so lively and we especially loved the white sand and clear water. There’s plenty of lounge chairs and no shortage of water activities. You can easily find parasailing, boating, snorkeling and other things to do. They also had a beach party scheduled once a week which we didnt get to experience because it rained the day of but it sounded like a lot of fun!
THE STAFF- Super friendly and helpful! If you stay in one of the preferred club rooms, you even get a butler! Butler service was undoubtedly one of the biggest features at Secrets, they went out of their way to ensure that you have everything you need on your vacation, they carry out requests for you to make reservations at the spa, or dinner at the resto. They even filled up our pool floaties and helped us carry out things when we needed help.
THE ENTERTAINMENT and CLUB- Honestly the best entertainment we have seen by far. We’ve been to lots of all inclusive but we really enjoyed the night shows, especially the fire show and Cirque De Soleil . Oh and don’t get us started on the club! Usually the clubs or ‘discos’ in the resorts are pretty dingy and not at all happening. but the disco at Royal Beach was on the rooftop and the DJ was amazing!
THE LOCATION– Its kind of cool because its adjoined to another resort called Now giving you double the amount of access than visiting one resort, we got to explore all the restaurants and we never felt like we were repeating activities.
All in all, we had a really fun time, next time we go to Punta Cana we look forward to checking out the all new Secrets Cap Cana!
