Recent guest reviews

Everything was amazing the food was good some restaurants we didn’t like they have very lil dominican food

Property was a bit outdated. Food was the same every single day in the buffet (not a big deal for dinner but kind of a bummer for breakfast). Beach was amazing!! Best beach we have ever been to... Only bad thing were the constant hagglers on the beach asking you to buy, come to their shops, etc.. This made us not even want to go to the beach some days. Overall good experience (for the price), but not great.

It was very clean,food was great,the property was kept up very good. I didn't like that they try to pressure you to buy in to the vacation club.

Chose to upgrade to the "preferred club" which was really just a restaurant for breakfast and lunch since everyone just walked in to use the 'preferred areas' anyways. Service was good otherwise.

Overall amazing! However, some of the staff (pool and beach bartenders) seemed rude. Especially if you did not speak Spanish. The other staff was fantastic! Vendors on the beach were more pushy than I expected but most left you alone after you said "no!".

Clean, comfortable, and great beach and pool. Sales was aggressive. We paid extra for the private beach which was great but irritating that we needed to do that in order to have a relaxing experience.

Great time of year, off-season, but weather is beautiful with a constant warm ocean breeze. Grounds are meticulously kept, food is great and plentiful. All in all a nice relaxing atmosphere.

Very well kept property in decent condition. Clean and comfortable rooms with balcony and an outside tub. Staff is exceptionally friendly and provides great service. Nine or so restaurants with handful of bars throughout the property serving high quality food and drinks that is far better than any other resort of comparable standards. Incredible access to the beach with plenty of space and chairs to lounge on. Ocean is full of seaweed along the shore, which is this this resorts only negative review. Overall, this would without a doubt be the property to revisit again.

Very happy with Secrets Royal Beach. The staff was very attentive and we never had an issue getting drinks. The food was great. We dined at the restaurants that are included and the portion sizes were small. We actually left the restaurant and went to the buffet to eat again. The buffet was one of the best ones I've been to at the all inclusive resorts. The only thing I was disappointed with was the desserts. I am Gluten free, so they didn't really offer anything except ice cream. But the breakfast buffet did have a spot for just no gluten items and included muffins in a bag. The pool was amazing, loved the lazy river and the foam party in the main pool was very cool!

Nice hotel. Don’t pay for preferred here, there is no difference from regular and they don’t enforce preferred only areas. Food is mediocre and although the beach is gorgeous, the seaweed attack made the beach and water unusable for two days. The pools are awesome, not crowded and no splashing! Plenty of people reading and drinking in the pool means it was very relaxed and enjoyable.

I stay here with my wife we had an amazing time we did pay extra to be upgraded which gave you extra amenities for your stay I highly recommend it our concier was Hector he would take care of everything that we needed it nothing was ever missing that we said we needed it they would call to find out what we want to do for dinner if we had plans for dinner what we need it this place is seriously amazing they attend you so good it's clean it's comfortable the food is great room service whenever you want I highly recommend it they did ask us to do at Tour so we could see the hotel but we right off the bat told them no we're just here to relax we dont want to waste time with that and they said okay no problem thank you for being Direct not pushy at all !! best time ever water is not chrystal clear but is still nice!

The experience was awesome! Close to the beach,friendly staff... Can't wait to get back!

The resort was great. The pool, room, and location were awesome. There was a lot of seaweed in the water. (One of the staff members said it was the time of the year - July) This resort was definitely on top of collecting the seaweed off of the shore. A tractor was going back and forth throughout the day, where you could see other resorts nearby had huge piles of seaweed on the sand. The only concern we had was the food. Nothing special at all. Definitely cheaper food to keep their costs down. We are also vegan, and there was very very very limited options for us. The vegetable sandwhiches from room service was a tomato, piece of lettuce, and onion on white bread... or basically hamburger comdiments on bread.

Some of the staff were great, some were just really rude. The food was not so good. The pool was great, the ocean was not clear. Spiders all over the sand under the huts. Everything not in the hotel is far. Average taxi cost is $60.00. They were working on rooms so construction early in the morning. My room (swim up) was great, my brothers room was more like a Motel. We all decided we will not be going back.

This was my first time at an all-inclusive. I had avoided them because I feared the quality of food and drink would be low. Secrets Royal Beach far exceeded my expectations. The property was amazing, the staff friendly and helpful, the food and drink were great. There were some restaurants that were better than others but my overall experience was awesome.

Pros: Beautiful grounds, a few friendly staff, night entertainment Cons: Bitter staff members yelling at each other, dirty beach, loud room, HORRIBLE FOOD, and lack of emergency training We have been to DR before, but after this experience will be sure not to return or ever book another stay with Secrets/AM resorts. Myself and 3 family members got food poisoning days after checking in. Mine was so bad that I fainted from dehydration, had to be carried to on site doctor, who called an ambulance and later taken to related hospital. Was charged over $1000 USD to be told I had a bacterial infection. Hotel management wanted nothing to do with our complaint, very unprofessional. Secrets customer rep, please do not respond to this review, blaming "the change in weather and diet." Good thing for word of mouth, as I'll be telling everyone I know about my experience so that they won't book with Secrets /AM Resorts.

Excellent service, great food, amazing vacation! It was great having access to the restaurants next door at the Larimar Now. Try the shrimp burrito at Tamarindo (next door at Larimar Now) you won’t be disappointed. We brought our insulated tumblers for ice water, which worked out well on the beach. The filet at the Seaside Grill is delicious. we had the best food at the individual restaurants, Himitsu was our favorite, though we didn’t know a reservation was required to sit at the cooking table. The service at Secrets was amazing! They were so accommodating. The nightly entertainment was fantastic. Beautiful beach with plenty of shaded huts and wait staff ready to take our order. It says gratuity is included but the staff went out of their way to provide excellent service so we tipped everywhere we went and they really appreciated it. I cannot say enough positive things about this resort in paradise.

Check in was fast and easy however as soon as we arrived we noticed a mildew smell from our room. We just decided to tough out and tried to enjoy the stay and avoid changing rooms. Then, whengoing out dinner the wait staff was always arguing amongst each other or just didn’t know what they were doing. Finally on our 3rd day we got food poisoning as well as the other two guests that we were traveling with. She got really bad, that had to be transported to the hospital. We didn’t get to enjoy our last three days and were confined to our rooms. We were scared to eat their food and their water. The management didn’t accommodate us or feel any sympathy towards us and not getting to enjoy our vacation that we so long were looking forward to and paid a lot of money for. I am truly disappointed with the hotel and the service provided during this stay. And would like to receive partial if our money back or take this matter further.

This resort went beyond my expectations! We spent 10 days 9 nights in a swim up suite, which I would totally recommend! So where do I start? The food. Breakfast and lunch were alright. You only have the option of the buffet, unless you are preferred member then you have the option of one restaurant. But, you can also go to the NOW buffet which is a lot bigger. Dinners were always amazing. You get the 3-4 courses but can get more if you want. Order 3 starters if you want. Share 3 entrees if you want. Lunch is served until 330, but dinner doesn't start til 630. If you miss lunch and want a late dinner, you can order room service 24 hours a day no free of charge. The room service menu isn't very large but it's alright for a small snack, but you do have to wait 45 minutes for it. But dinner is amazing, especially the hibatchi, seaside grill, and oceana. The room. We had a swim up, located in the middle of the property, perfect. It was half way between the restaurants and main pool and the main lobby. The room was large and very clean. The housekeepers would clean it in the morning and then do turn down service in evening, refilling towels and fridge items each time. When booking, we were torn between swim up or preffered club (about the same price). I would definitaly choose swim up. People were getting up super early to save a chair by the pool, but if you have a swim up you don't have to worry about it as you get your own loungechairs on your patio.
