  1. I am very disappointed that UVC/Secrets has decided to allow small dogs at their resorts. While I love dogs in general I don’t want to have to deal with bad pet parents, barking dogs and dogs at restaurants. We are UVC members which very recently upgraded to the Gold Plus membership. If I was even remotely aware of this new offering/change we would not have upgraded our membership. We currently have booked a vacation at Secrets Huatulco in October and planed another in February to Secrets Costa Rica but we are now considering canceling our reservation, selling our membership and going with another brand.

    • It seems it is very limited in the number of rooms available to be booked. I bet it would be minimal inconvenience, if noticeable at all. This will especially help existing members that may have a small service dog. There are defined restrictions on where the dog can go and I bet room service would be the best way to go for meals. Also, the resort retains the right to kick the dog out if rules are not followed. This will help a handful of guests unable to leave the little doggie behind at home. Why don’t you see how it goes in October before you cancel and sell your membership?

    • I completely agree with Mike. I love my kids and dogs. We choose the Secrets Resorts because they are Adults only. We leave our kids behind when we vacation so we can enjoy ourselves without our children for a week. Now we will have other people’s “children” (dogs) at the resort. The Secrets will no longer be an Adult only resort!

    • To clarify, it is not a very limited number of rooms. Secrets is allowing dog owners to use the junior Suite Ocean View with Jacuzzi and Preferred Junior Suite Ocean View rooms. This is over 30% of the rooms!

  2. Obecnie bardzo często wśród marketów spożywczych można spostrzec asortymenty bio. Chociaż są zdecydowanie kosztowniejsze od marketowej gastronomii, stale rośnie na nie popyt.

  4. I wouldn’t have booked this resort if i had known dogs were allowed in rooms , im allergic to dog hair and no matter how thorough the room is cleaned the hair will still be there .
