Secrets Royal Beach

  • Avenida Alemania s/n Map It
  • Bávaro
  • Fodor's Choice


  • Idyllic for weddings and honeymoons
  • Nightly entertainment at the main plaza
  • Good fun quotient with activities like cooking competitions on the beach
  • Exceptional 17,000-square-foot Spa by Pevonia


  • Beach vendors, excursion salespeople and overzealous entertainment crew can be annoying
  • Some clients think food is not as stellar as the environment
  • Tropical view rooms don't compare to more expensive accommodations
  • Wi-Fi is slow and costly

Fodor's Review

The lobby at this sceney, adults-only all-suites resort is like a modern art gallery, with suspended fish sculptures immediately attracting the eye; however, the Caribbean-accented guest rooms do not quite match. The white-sand beach is glorious. Two à la carte restaurants, Oceana (seafood) and the Seaside Grill (with steaks) are particularly good; the international buffet, La Riviera, is global indeed, with lunch offerings such as Portugal's answer to paella. And there are unlimited premium-brand liquors. The bonus is that just adjacent is the sister resort, the family-friendly Now Larimar Punta Cana, where Secrets guests have access to all facilities, including eight more restaurants. Junior suites have playful contemporary decor and furnishings. Swim-out rooms let you drop into the lazy-river pool, but the next best are the second-floor rooms with better sea views. Upgrade to the Preferred Club if possible, all the perks, pampering and the free Wi-Fi are worth it, we just wish the Club lounge was larger. You do not want a room overlooking the family pool at Now Larimar.
