As we spend a few days relaxing in Ottawa with family, James and I thought about our last little getaway and how fun it was even if it was only for 4 days. If you're beginning to plan your fall/winter vacations (like I am), I highly recommend seriously considering Secrets Resorts & Spas!
We particularly stayed at the Secrets Resort in Playa Mujeres, a small area in Mexico but only a short ride away from the main city. Secrets has roughly 10 resorts in Mexico alone, a couple in Dominican Republic and Jamaica, and can even be found in Costa Rica and Panama. We'd never been to Mexico before, so it was really a treat to be able to explore Cancun and the culture, but also have the option of winding down and relaxing in an exclusive part of the country.
While James and I enjoy all-inclusive resorts because of the price, quality and service, we aren't huge fans of being tied down to a single location or only being able to get the value of our vacation at certain times. The idea behind Secrets Resort is to have unlimited luxury. We loved having the option of 24-hour room service (for food/drinks), having lots of options for daytime activities and night time entertainment, absolutely NO wristbands, pool and beach wait service and just being able to do whatever we wanted, from wherever we wanted.
A few other little perks were free wifi + long distance calls from anywhere in the resort, a cool app that gives you a daily schedule of activities and food options, and pillow service, a unique option for you to select your choice of pillows from a range of different types.
We'd happily go back to this resort if given the chance! If my experience isn't enough to convince you, just scroll down to see all the photos!
