Too many missed opportunities

Reviewed 20 january, 2022

To whom it may concern: My husband and I joined UVC back in July of 2021. We traveled to Dreams in Costa Rica where we were approached about joining your club. We were treated so well and the level of service was unmatched. We agreed to join the club thinking if this is what we will get traveling as members of this club, we are in. We booked our first vacation with the club to St. Marteen. We thought, this is a 5 Star Hotel, this is going to be great. It wasn't. I understand that this is a new Secrets property but it left so much to be desired. St Marteen is such a beautiful place and I would really love to return but not so sure we will return to Secrets. I am not one to complain much but it just seemed there were so many missed opportunities that made our trip questionable. 1. There should be a shuttle service or at least have an AMStar Rep at the airport. We got in a little after 4 and there was no one at the AMStar Desk. Scrabbled around and found a cab. 2. When we got to the hotel, the concierge was sitting down in the dark space and we had to find someone to help us, whereas, when we got to Dreams in CR they were standing with warm towels and champagne. Not the case here. We had to find someone sitting down to help us and who was annoyed to do so. We sat there in a dark lobby while he found our paperwork... still no champagne and no warm wet towels. The check in was awful. I had to mention that we were part of the unlimited vacation club, where I was asked if I had my member number. This by itself annoyed me because I thought to myself, I've been traveling since 6:30am, why would I have that information handy?? So that VIP treatment we received in Costa Rica was not the experience in St Marteen. 3. When we got to our room, we figured we would take a shower to get the yucky feel of traveling all day off before dinner. Couldn't take a decent shower. Only the handheld part of the shower worked. Nonetheless, we headed out for dinner. 4. The next morning, because of Covid, we decided it would be a better idea to get breakfast in our room. There was no menu in the room. When I called room service, the only thing they could bring to the room was an American Breakfast - which consisted of 2 very runny COLD eggs - COLD TOAST AND COLD BACON. BY HUSBAND HAD COLD AND RAW SAUSAGE. Needless to say, we were unsatisfied. We figured let's just go get breakfast at the market (which is the buffet at Secrets). They were closed. The food needs an overhaul (seriously). 5. We at that point went to plan our excursion with the AMStar agent who wasn't really helpful and looked like it was a chore to help us. 6. When we were done I let the concierge know that the shower didn't work and our food was awful. She let the restaurant manager know that our food was awful.. The restaurant manager wanted to right it so bad. She offered to take us herself to the restaurant and make sure we had breakfast. (love her) While we were waiting for our breakfast I needed to use the restroom. I walked over to the restrooms which had 6 stalls... Only 2 worked. One of the stalls didn't have a toilet seat, the other had a seat that was smaller than the toilet and had a crack in it. I used that one because I really needed to sit down (which shouldnt be the point but it was). I was careful wiping the toilet and sitting down because I knew that when I got up the crack would expand while I was sitting and would retract when I got up.... The first time I tried to get up it pinched my thigh so I sat back down right away. I tried holding the seat and attempted to get up again. The seat came out from under me, I fell, smacked my knee on the floor and hit my face on the wall. Both are still very sore and tender. Thank God I didn't have a bruise on my face. My knee swelled up a bit and I have a sore where the toilet seat pinched the back of my thigh. 7. At that point I told my husband lets just go to the beach and enjoy the rest of the day, I left the beach to go get something out of the room. I walked over enjoying my stroll, took a couple of steps and slid into a split. I looked down to see what happened.. Apparently someone had poured cement out and didn't block it off. I had to run upstairs and clean my sandals. Later on I felt like I pulled a muscle. 8. For as much as they tried to make things better it just wasn't happening. This is a Caribbean Island, why isn't there any island food or island music? The only entertainment was 1 person singing Karaoke all night. Sweet Home Alabama is a great song at home. Not on vacation. There is no dancing, no music... NOTHING.. DRY LIKE TOAST 9. The railings need painting. When our room was switched, because we were offered an upgrade for my trouble, the screen was not on and was leaning up against the side of the terrace, so when the wind blew it came down on us. I couldn't even complain anymore. My husband put it up against the wall again. In the end, this isn't what we expected. While we understand that things happen, this was alot. We are questioning now why we are part of this club.... We are paying monthly for a very unpleasant NON VIP experience. St Marteen Secrets needs help. ASAP I would never recommend this hotel. Everyone keeps asking me where we stayed. I honestly don't want to tell them and keep skipping over the question. Someone please fix this

Amazing Time

Reviewed 20 january, 2022

Nine of us stayed at Secrets two weeks ago and had a great time. The resort is located in a cove and has a fantastic view of the beach and mountains. The beach is the highlight with white sand, warm ocean water and no sea weed. Pool is also nice and has a great place to eat, burgers, ribs, pizza and salads. Plenty of chairs and shade all around. Plenty of bars around the resort so it was easy to get a drink. Our room was clean and made up daily. Plenty of towels and hot water. The food was good but the service was great. Melinda made sure we were well taking care of. We went for hikes daily through the mountains which provided awesome views of the resort and ocean. They were also educational - thanks German and Margarita. There's a marina next door so we rented a catamaran through Captain Jo and went snorkeling with turtles and saw an awesome sunset. The resort manager Bernard was everywhere and always checking in with us to make sure we had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend this resort as the service, food and beach is the best.

Best Birthday Celebration Ever

Reviewed 19 january, 2022

Stayed at resort for 8 days 7 nights to celebrate my birthday with 8 friends who flew in from different parts of the US and it was a delightful experience. I arranged ahead of time a private dinner party, which is an additional cost but well worth it. Lesa was the event coordinator who communicated with me every step of the way in planning to ensure I had everything I wanted. She is excellent at what she does. I had a plated waiter service sunset dinner on the roof top Terrance with DJ, decorated table settings, open bar with dedicated Bar Tender, cake, it was magical. The resort is beautiful and clean with a great beach. Never a problem with beach chairs or fresh towels, you didn’t have to go down and reserve a seat early in the morning like some resorts. The staff is 2nd to none in providing attention and service to guest. From the omelet lady at the buffet, wait staff, check in, bartenders, went always pleasant. I must give a special thank you and shout out to Mimi. She is every where every day doing everything…she is amazing. She ensured we had space for the 8 of us for dinner at the restaurants including the Hibachi. Room Service and 24 hour snack bar good. My fridge and room snack bar refilled every day. Other than Lesa and Mimi, I want to recognize the following: Alain, Kenny, Elisha, Baxter, Quincy, and Jose. (Jose don’t forget the cc credit I await from your accounting department) Last but not least the Bernard the General Manager that made himself known and available and was always checking in to see if we needed something. Note to Bernard: Improve the Preferred Club so it mimic’s Preferred Clubs at other Secretes Resorts I visited. It didn’t really offer anything special or upgraded for those of us who paid the Preferred Club prices. Though the staff in the club were fabulous.

The resort staff made all the difference for a great vacation

Great resort with all we could ask for. Our room was clean and well maintained. The location was great. what made this visit special were the warm and friendly people that work here. Bernard the GM was very accessible and informative. From the dining room staff, Stefanie to the DJ Yvan along with Sunshine, Daisy, Rosaline at the swim up pool bar and all the others that we got to know in such a short time. Thank you. Merci

Wonderful place

Reviewed 18 january, 2022

The resort is truly in a beautiful spot and one of the nicer beaches you can find. The only thing that exceeds it was the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff. I’d like to mention “JuJu” at the beach bars for her amazing joy that she spreads. Also, Avril in housekeeping….that’s an thankless job and she is cheerful every time I pass her in the halls. Covid has made things tough on everyone and they handle it great. I look forward to returning after Covid is over and seeing how amazing things are without working with a pandemic handicap!
