TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

I'm not an overly critical reviewer. Just an average traveler with honest opinions for real people. We visited the Secrets in Punta Cana two years ago so we have something to compare it to (short review: we'd go there again in a heartbeat). The overall reaction is "meh." Very middle-of-the-road resort. It's not the one-star disaster some claim it to be. It just won't blow you away either. Keep in mind that it's one of the cheapest, if not the cheapest, of the Secrets chain. Adjust your expectations accordingly. For the positive side: -People are quite friendly and do what they can to help -Sky Bar with sushi and martinis is awesome, especially watching the sunset -Night time entertainment was decent (Punta Cana was better), but the fire show was cool -Free snorkeling and kayaking off the beach was nice (don't be alarmed when you see the price board--it's for non-guests) -Never had a problem with the air or hot water like so many have claimed. The only time I noticed the sewer smell was walking by the Preferred section rooms oddly enough. -Different pools were nice; one was more lazy river and the other was more social. Of course, you'll get some leaves and such in it because there's trees and shrubs all around it. Negatives -Probably our biggest gripe: food was mediocre at best and the food was never hot (French restaurant was solid and by far the best). Portions are small by American standards, but there are some that are extremely small (at the Sabor Sunnyside Grill, a chicken basket was literally one chicken wing and a spoonful of potatoes). When you can, go to any of the freshly grilled events like the BBQ on the beach because the meat will at least be hot. -Along with the food, the menus are pretty inflexible with substitutions, especially when there's a bit of a language barrier. -Continuing with the food theme, just expect your wait/service times at the restaurants to be double what they are in America and you'll be less frustrated. -We had a swim-up suite and the description led us to believe that we would have a jazcuzzi or at least a bath tub. Did not have either which was disappointing. -We were going to be charged for alcohol we ordered for room service so we cancelled it and went to the bar and got wine ourselves and went back to the room. -Daytime entertainment/stuff to do is pretty lax, even though Javy and Winnie try very hard to get people into it. -Place pretty much shuts down after 9, which goes with the age of the crowd -We didn't do preferred but I can't imagine it was worth it; the preferred area had no one keeping guard so we could have easily walked right in and used their pool if we wanted. It's sandwiched between the family resort and the rest of Secrets so it's definitely not secluded. Finally, as mentioned earlier, that was the only place we encountered the sewage smell. So as you can see there was good and bad. Overall, if you want a very chill, non-rowdy resort, this one is fine. If you want a place with a younger crowd and more energy, probably need to look elsewhere. The food got us down and that's usually one of the things we care least about. I doubt we'll return any time soon.

Stayed for a week and loved it! Very relaxing, but you can do as little or as much as you like. We did a couple of excursions and the staff arranged them for us. Vicky, our beach waitress, was awesome. Our room was fair, but the view was incredible. The staff were great and the food and drinks were good. Hated to leave.

We just returned from 2 glorious weeks at this resort. We travelled with another couple and were a little wary from the reviews on Tripadvisor but kept an open mind. We considered opting for the preferred club amenities but then decided against it and braved the unknown. We were disappointed that we were not in the same building but did not want to wait two days to unpack and stayed in our respective buildings 4300 and 4100. If you have physical mobility issues then the 4100 is not for you as there is an incline and stairs. The rooms (king sized beds, sitting areas and balcony) were always kept clean and fairly well stocked thanks to our housekeeper, Guadaloupe. The water in the shower does have a smell of sulfur at times. There is bottled water for brushing teeth/rinsing. We gererally ate breakfast at the Market as it offered a wide selection to choose from and endless fresh fruit. Rosa the hostess was always welcoming as was Fredy. Special shout out to Victor for always having a smile, orange juice and mimosas ready. The a la carte breakfast at Oceana was also a good alternative. Lunch at Oceana for fish tacos and fish cakes for supper was out-shined by the blackened grouper we had as a special one evening. Bourdeau was notable for the rack of lamb and filet mignon (bananas foster was quite a show at table side!) Our favourite a la carte restaurant was Windows. The staff , especially Fabian Rush, were attentive, congenial and went out of their way to please us. He is enthusiastic about food and concocted special desserts for the four of us.The choices for the different courses were varied enough to please everyone in our party. I especially like the empanadas. Mayra the hostess and Alejandro were also quite amiable. we went to the Skybar for sunset, sushi and martinis pre-dinner almost every day; Francisco and Israel were very prompt with our orders. At the Rendezvous bar Fernando was outstanding and Miguel was also very good. Special mention about the sommelier, Armando who treated us to his first wine tasting event at Secrets Aura. Hope it is a recurrent event. Enough about food! The beach area was great and staff are ready to take drink orders, Vicky was very attentive. Snorkelling of the beach was wonderful especially if you have water shoes (rocky) and a full face snorkel. There are endless dive/snorkel tours available for those who want to travel to the reefs. All in all a very relaxing vacation for those who want to spend and unhurried time in the sun, sand and turquoise water!

We had a wonderful vacation for our Valentine anniversary. Secrets Aura is a beautiful property with excellent accommodations. The staff is great. The pool bar staff are always friendly and courteous. We love Millie and Alfredo. We also enjoyed the entertainment and the great staff. Adrian a and Hugo really helped make our trip fun. Our anniversary was fabulous. We enjoyed a special dinner for two in the wine cellar. The steak and lobster were cooked to perfection. We plan to return again in September.

I had read reviews before booking that this is the lowest quality property in the Secrets chain, so I booked with low expectations when I found an amazing deal. I would be immensely disappointed if I had paid more than I did. Upon arrival we noticed a foul smell wafted through the lobby, but didn't think much of it. We continued the check in process (got a free room upgrade, so that was a plus), and at the end they tried to convince us to sign up for a sales pitch on the preferred guest perks. I found this very annoying as we had just arrived and they were already trying to upsell us as if we were buying a timeshare. We were then escorted to our room and we immediately discovered the AC wasn't working. Luckily they fixed this promptly and we didn't have any more issues with it until our last night (someone mysteriously took the batteries out of the thermostat). The beach is ok, they need more umbrellas and a better way to signal the server such as a flag system. The no straws concept is inconvenient. I understand the environmental reasoning, but metal straws that are reusable would be a good alternative. we tried to snorkel off of the pier one day and the water smelled HORRIBLE. Not sure if it was just the area, but it smelled like rotten eggs. It was disgusting and unbearable. As for the restaurants, Bordeaux is by far the best. The food and service was fantastic. Oceana had terrible service. People were getting up and walking out because they sat there for 15+ minutes without a server coming by. Breakfast at Market Cafe was buffet, and was decent with an omelette and waffle station. Sky Bar was a nice area to have drinks. The sushi place was good as well. Overall I am not sure I would come back to this location, but am interested in other Secrets resort properties
