This by far was the best all inclusive we have ever experienced!! We have stayed at Palace Resorts, Iberostar, Barcelo and Dreams but from here on out I will do my best to stay at a Secrets Resort.
From the minute we got to the resort till the minute we left we truly enjoyed ourselves. This year my wife had invited her 2 sisters and spouses to join us and they too were very impressed by the great experience they encountered at The Royal Beach.
We stayed in the 5300 building which we would recommend. You are close to the restarunts, pool and beach and don't really have a far walk to the lobby and the Now resort.
Food was excellent at all the Secrets restaurants. I would definately recommend the Royal Beach Caribbean Dinner they have every Friday night right on the beach. This was our last dinner at the resort and it was great! Lobster tail and steak as much as you wanted. All you need to do is make a reservation with the concierge. The Now restaurants were ok. It was like staying at the Four Seasons and dining at Ho Jo's when we ate at the Now resort.
Pool were great especially the lazy river we floated around it everyday making friends with everyone with the swim out rooms, delivering them drinks and sharing laughs. The pool bar was great also! Carlos made the best drinks and did some jugging tricks in the process. My wife and sisters wanted to take him home with us they loved him so much!! The wait staff around the pool were also great Junior was always making sure your glass was never empty.
The beach was great! A nice mix of cabanas and palm trees for shade and plenty of sun as well. Make sure to do the non-motorized water sports that are free. You can go down to the beach at 9:30 every morning and they teach you how to use the small catamarans and you can take it out any day for 30 minutes per room. It's a great time we only wished we had done it earlier in the week.
Rooms were great! Nice sized and really clean. The first floor ones smelled kind of musty but they had plenty of insence burning to help with the smell. Maids did a great job with making up the rooms and turn down service with rose petals on the bed and everything!
The buffet was great every morning for breakfast. We had a party of 6 and every morning they would make us a table up outside no problem. Zamora and Gregory were awesome making sure we had everything we needed. From mamosa's to coffee, to OJ. Our glasses were never empty.
Best mommy and daddy getaway ever!! We will definately be back again to this Secrets and other Secrets in Mexico and Jamacia! Thank you to the whole staff for making our stay excellente!!
