It’s no secret, we love our Secrets Resorts and Spas. Most recently, my sweet husband, surprised me with a vacation to the Secrets Capri Riviera Cancun, for our 6 month wedding anniversary.
This was our 3rd Secrets trip in the past year and a half. The first time we went was in May of 2013 for my mom’s birthday celebration. It was also perfect timing as we had gotten engaged weeks before.
The Secrets Resorts and Spas, is owned and operated by AMResorts. “AMResorts is a collection of luxury destinations, each with its own personality”, according to their website http://www.secretsresorts.com. I suggest you visit it. There are eleven Secrets Resorts and Spas throughout Mexico. There is one in the Dominican Republic, and two in Jamaica. All Secrets Resorts and Spas are all-inclusive, and adult-only. No children allowed! It’s the perfect adult vacation.
We’ve had the privilege to stay twice at Secrets Capri Riviera Cancun, in May 2013 and November 2014. We stayed at Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun, for our honeymoon in May 2014. We took advantage of the Secrets Eternity Honeymoon Package.
I highly recommend this package if you are looking for the ultimate honeymoon experience. I suggest using a travel agent to help plan, book, and handle your honeymoon. The last thing you want to stress about is your honeymoon, let your travel agent help you.
Each Secrets Resorts and Spas experience starts off as such, a greeter who says, “Welcome Home”. You think, yes, I want this to be home. Then, you are given a scented and cooled towel, which is perfect as it’s usually warm, hot, or humid in Mexico. Then, as if that isn’t enough, you are offered a glass of champagne, all before even entering your room or completing check-in.
Someone will bring your bags to your room, you don’t have to lift a finger. You start to get the idea, this is what vacation is all about. If you are celebrating a special occasion, ex. birthday, anniversary, or honeymoon there will be a banner across the door to welcome you.
Once inside you’ll notice the bright red rose petals across your bed on a beautifully made lush bed.
Each time we’ve stayed, we’ve had a king size four poster bed. I want one. I need one. Just like from the Secrets. Every detail in each room is as lovely as the next.
The balconies in the room are spacious enough to fit a table and chairs for two. I suggest sitting there and enjoy morning room service, or, a nightcap and cigar, as my husband likes to do.
Speaking of room service, it’s a must here. It’s 24hrs a day, and it’s already included. While the gourmet dining is exquisite, and it’s truly gourmet, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the chilaquiles in the morning, or the “Pepito” sandwich, I enjoy in the afternoon.
Of course, room service is even made fancy by being wheeled in, set wherever you wish, on a silver platter, and white linen napkins. When they say, “unlimited-luxury” they mean it. Everything and everyone here is made to feel special and unique.
Between the Secrets Capri Riviera Cancun and Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun, there are 16 dining options. We dined on everything from
seafood to Italian to Japanese. You won’t go hungry or even get bored from the food selections. Everything is high restaurant quality food and service.
We did have one of the best meals at the Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun. We were on our honeymoon, it was our first night, and we were looking for something to eat. We walked up to a “pop-up” restaurant they only have three days out of the week called “Fusion”. I can’t begin to describe how unexpected this “Fusion” experience was for my husband and I. We are foodies. We will and have traveled the world for exceptional food. A great chef and his/her team will transform a meal into edible art. This is their gift to us. We were told, “it’s a chef’s tasting menu and it’s a two hour dinner.” The woman at the front had us at chef’s tasting menu. As foodies, we know that’s the best the chef has to offer. However, I understand a lot of people wouldn’t understand that, and would be turned away by the length of time during dinner. All I can admit is, we savored every bit of our 9 course chef’s tasting menu with wine pairings, and specialty cocktails. The service was amazing. We couldn’t stop complimenting each course as it came out and devoured it. Our waiter was kind enough to bring the chef and his staff to our table to meet us. It was with great joy we complimented and
thanked them face to face for an unforgettable dinner. In any other place, we would have paid hundreds of dollars for that type of service, meal, and overall experience. Plus, it was all included in our stay. Amazing!
Aside from all the delicious food and drinks, you’ll never be bored. If you’re bored it’s your fault. Each night there is entrainment. The Excelente Entertainment Team makes sure everyone is having as much fun as possible from day to night. If you’re there for pure relaxation and romance they will know to let you enjoy that experience, as well.
I will be remiss if I forget to gush about the SPA! Everyone loves a great spa experience. I can honestly say, I’ve had the best massages of my life at the Secrets Capri Riviera Cancun, and, Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun. From the hydrotherapy circuit to the massages
expect at least a 2hr spa experience. The spas all carry Pevonia products. They are fully equipped to do massages, facials, manicures, and pedicures. Please, treat yourself, your spouse, or enjoy the spa together. You can also choose to enjoy a massage on the beach, which I’m determined to do, one day.
I have to admit the real shining stars of this whole resort experience are their staff. Every waiter, every poolside waiter, every bartender, the cleaning staff, the concierge, the Excelente Entertainment Team, are kind, friendly, and work long long hours always with a smile on their faces.
These people truly deserve the accolades. It’s because of them we get to experience the unlimited-luxury experience. I don’t take that or them for granted. Please don’t forget to TIP! While it is an all-inclusive resort, these people work extremely hard, and all day to make sure we have the best experience possible. Please don’t forget to show your appreciation.
While, I sit here and fondly look back at our memories made, I’m anxiously dreaming of our next Secrets Resorts and Spas experience. We’ll definitely be returning for our one year anniversary. As much as we visit, it really is starting to feel like home. A dream home, but, nonetheless a home we see ourselves returning to time and time again.
