Secrets Dominican

Pros

  • Beach has soft, white sand and warm water (but some seaweed debris)
  • All rooms have romantic balconies or terraces with Jacuzzis
  • Massive pool features a lively swim-up bar and a lazy river
  • Wristband-free property

Cons

  • Next door to the Now Larimar, so the beach isn't completely kid-free
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The adults-only Secrets caters to honeymooners and couples, but of the more party-hearty variety: The resort offers numerous on-site bars as well as nightly entertainment. However, tranquility (and romance) can certainly be found in the kid-free restaurants, lazy river, and intimate spa, and all rooms feature balconies or terraces with large whirlpool tubs. Room decor is similar to, but a step above, that at the Now: Floral throws, bright furniture, accent walls, flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and large marble bathrooms all come together to make comfortable, if not particularly luxurious, accommodations. The resort lacks a golf course, but overall its a solid choice for couples looking to let loose - and still enjoy a bit of romance.

Scene

A popular spot among honeymooners and party-hearty couples

This adults-only property is less of a tranquil, romantic spot and more of a party haven for couples and groups looking to spend their days by the swim-up bar. The massive pool is indeed the resort's highlight, with a lively scene by the bar and volleyball net. However, those looking for some R&R can certainly find it - the pool also features a lazy river wrapping around the grounds, where I spotted plenty of guests napping or engrossed in novels.

While the Secrets features four on-site restaurants and numerous bars, amenities such as the fitness center, spa, and casino are located at the sister property, the Now Larimar, next door. However, its only a five-minute walk away and Secrets guests have access to all of the Now's facilities, including its restaurants. Now Larimar guests, however, must stay on the Now property.

The Secrets sits on a large stretch of beautiful beach with crystal-clear blue waters (though some seaweed debris does collect on the white sand throughout the day). It can get crowded during high season (and its proximity to the Now means screaming children can be heard at times), but there seemed to be plenty of lounge chairs for guests.
