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 beach is glorious with white sand and sun so bright. 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 8 more restaurants. Junior suites have playful contemporary decor and furnishings, but they do not have the high-end look of the public areas. 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 you can, all the perks, pampering and the free Wi-Fi are worth it.
