We wanted to get away from the city for a long weekend and decided on the Dominican Republic. It's a quick and direct flight from Manhattan so you can be on the white, sandy beaches within hours. This trip was really meant for some R&R so there was a lot of reading, drinking strongly-poured margaritas and multiple orders of room service (specifically french fries, because vacation?) 🌴🍹
Since we didn't leave the resort, there's not much to report on beyond where we stayed and our experience.
Located: Av. Alemania S/N, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
This was our first time staying at a Secrets resort and it was overall a really nice experience. The hotel is an all inclusive, so it was convenient having everything on the property and not having to leave for anything. The rooms were nice and clean, the staff were attentive, and there's a lot of different areas to lay out and enjoy the pools and beautiful beach.
When we got to the hotel, we decided to upgrade to Premium members, which gave us access to the exclusive parts of the resort. If you enjoy privacy and a more intimate area to relax, I would recommend doing this!
