Good morning Kim, Dave and the Love to Travel Team.
I will start by saying – it was an absolute wonderful trip.
The facilities were brand new and totally awesome. Views from every room were great ocean views, the facilities were unbelievably clean, grounds were beautiful even though the hotel was only a few months, the beach was very clean with very little disturbance by vendors and the service on the beach was very frequent and very very friendly. We also used the water park at the next door hotel and the sports bar.
Two side by side brand new hotels and we were able to completely use facilities at either property with our inclusive arrangement. Our hotel alone had 6 pools (two with swim up bars & friendly bar tenders). The hotel had two food locations open 24 hours one of which is a huge buffet. But even more impressive this hotel also had 6 different restaurants open each evening with really great meals – French, Mexican, Italian, Japanese, steak and the buffet. The adjacent hotel had other options as well. There were bands & dancing every night as well as a different theater show every night. We especially enjoyed the coffee café we dozens of deserts each night after dinner, theater and band/dancing.
You picked the perfect spot for us all.
We had a great time! We had excellent weather and loved walking the beach. Going between both Riu’s was a nice way to mix it up.The kids liked the waterpark! The resort is nice, the food was decent. The best restaurant was Krystal- the Asian fusion restaurant. We enjoyed the spa, the massages, facials and pedicures were very good. Transportation to and from the resort was perfect.
All in all it was a success. We had great family time and the boys got in four rounds of golf- not a bad way to spend a week, enjoying 83 degree weather and hanging out!
Thanks for helping us plan our trip!! We would definitely love to try Secrets Cap Cana someday! We walked by it when we went to Punta Cana for Michaels 50th bday.
