We checked out the Secrets Royal Beach on line and decided to book. We ended up having a super vacation. Check-in was smooth, though having to wait till 3PM was a bit much. We were greeted by waiters with champagne, cool moist towels, and a friendly concierge.
The room was better than expected. Very nice ammenties,jacuzzi on the porch, large bathroom with glass divided shower, and decent maid service. WIth the turn down service came chocolates and a sheet (Sun Dial) with the next day's events.
You do what you want to do. Beach, pool, water sports - definitely go learn to sail a Hobie Cat. Its all included. Bars, waiters everywhere, choice of restaurants - wander over to the NOW Larimar for more restaurants and shows each evening. Don't expect the level of service that you get at Secrets.
Our best experience was dining at the Oceana restaurant. It's billed as a Seafood restaurant. We enjoyed the Tasting Menu - you start with a dry martini (lemon and Vermouth), then you try the entire menu and . Francisco and his staff were the best.
They were friendly, well coordinated and attentive to every need. Drinks were refilled with a smile and real personality. Aside from the culinary delights from the appetizers to dessert, the waiter team was friendly and provided excellent service. Highly receommend it. The Seaside Grille was also very good. You can go with the traditional filet or rib eye, but be sure to try the churrasco (skirt steak).
I mentioned service a couple times. Domingo (the manager) greeted us in the buffet dining area on day one and assured us of his intent to provide us the best service available. He was right. Service is first class! Other worth mentioning include Juan (Patriacha), Gilber (Marianito), Yalenny, and Randy. They recognize yuo and are happy to take ensure a superb dining experience.
When we departed to the airport we looked back with a smile and said we'll be back! Hasta luego.
