    Horrible Experience

    We arrived at this resort and our first room they had us in had ants all in the room and on our beds. We then asked to move rooms and they put us in a room that had water all over the floors. They told us someone would come and clean the water that was all over the floor. I got up to go answer the door for my sister who was knocking a fell hard on my knee. I busted a blood vessel in my hand and my knee is bruised up and in alot of pain. We called the front desk and then sent someone to come and wipe up the water. I asked to speak to a manager and they kept saying he was in a meeting. I asked them to have him contact me. They then sent a lifeguard to come check on me. Why they did that I have no idea. The day we were leaving I went back to front desk asking for manager and he still wasnt there and still till today he hasnt reached out to me. I wrote him a letter and left my phone number. I also asked concierge for a copy of my accident report and they refused to give it to me. They said they would email it to me and I still havent received that. this was the worst experience ever! Its the idea that they didnt care enough to make sure I was ok but they will when they get served with legal papers and hospital bill.

    Entertainment Excellent

    Me and my husband were never bored at this resort! We had a great time! The resort had FUN activities planned throughout the day for families, adults & kids. They even had a back up just in case it rained for indoor activities. My favorite shows were the light shows! My room bathroom wasn’t the cleanest but we survived. Pools were also not the cleanest but it makes sense bc people are coming from the sand and all pools are out doors so obviously they can’t keep it supper clean. Drinks are not fresh fruit, they are all artificial flavoring. Not the best drinks for a non alcoholic person. Breakfast & lunch options were very minimal. Mainly only 1 buffet open. Staff is extremely nice, very friendly, and helpful. If there was an issue they made sure to fix it right away. Seafood is under cooked or cold. Very few vegetarian options. We ate French toast, eggs, and pizza everyday. Non alcoholic and alcoholic drinks were being mixed with the same spoon. Did not feel comfortable having those drinks bc I am pregnant and I am someone that doesn’t drink alcohol. Food was my biggest downside.

    Worst vacation of my life!!!

    If you have booked a stay here, please rebook at another hotel. The hotel is under construction and it’s falling apart. I had to be moved 3 different times. The first room had a smell of poop coming from the bathroom. Poop smell took over the entire room. The second room had a leak coming from the AC. I asked Applevactions rep at the hotel to help with booking at a different hotel. He could not be bothered. Jose was useless. He was annoyed at me and tried to avoid me. The third room had a leak in the bathroom. Finding food at the hotel is a treasure hunt. They only have the Buffay open all day and out of all of the restaurants to dine in for dinner they only keep one open a day. I couldn’t understand why they would keep the Italian Restaurant open when it had the worst choice selection and close the Mexican restaurant when you’re in Mexico?!? We never had any housekeeping for the four days that we were there. We had to call room service about five times one day to get towels. The rooms are very run down with stains on the sheets chips furniture dirty walls and stains on the towels. If you have booked here I would recommend that you book at another hotel. So many leaks, you feel water dripping on you. I was overjoyed to leave.

    This chain has been sold! RUN AND GET YOUR $$ BACK!

    Not Dreams or Secrets but we didn’t expect it to be. Resturaunts and bars closed but no one knows which one or when. Hours change. Check the bar code on your phone every day but they NEVER change to reflect the reality of what is happening. Construction every day making it a treasure hunt to find food and drink. OK, but then they don't let us in because my husband didn’t have on long pants, duh. You closed the other resturaunts. We are willing to work with what is offered. They called our room 3 times one day too see if we wanted our room cleaned. Third time we bartered for towels,instead. Finally went and got beach towels. Only reason we are here is because we had 2 weeks of vacation to kill. We cancelled our next spring at Secrets. Will let the new owner try to unscrew this tired mess and head to Sandals.
