Secrets The Vine Food & Wine Festival-A recap from our Winner!

Today on the blog we’re delighted to share some kind words we received from our winner of the Secrets the Vine Food & Wine Festival Sweeps, Jill Connor. Jill’s grand prize included a 4-night stay at Secrets The Vine Cancun, air credit, tickets for two to the Cancún-Riviera Maya Wine & Food Festival and Gala and VIP Access to “The Future of Cuisine” with Chef Daniel Boulud. Here are a few excerpts from Jill’s review and photos from this year’s spectacular Food & Wine Festival.

“Well, it has been almost a week since I returned from your wonderful resort. First of all, I cannot thank you enough for allowing us to stay at your magnificent resort for four nights. Our experience was beyond expectations. Amy and I did not have an experience that wasn’t fantastic. Your staff was marvelous from beginning to end. Honestly, it didn’t matter what the interaction, what their position, time of day, your staff represents your company and this hotel remarkably.”

“Oliver was our beach server the majority of the time we were there. How he was able to remember our names after just a couple of hours the day before was remarkable. He was fun and was always upbeat and made the afternoons on the beach spectacular.”

“Upon our arrival, we were told we were receiving a complimentary upgrade to a junior suite. The room was spectacular! Absolutely beautiful in and of itself, the view was amazing and everything about the room was so relaxing. I think the balcony is almost as big as my front porch! Every restaurant was magnificent…truly. We did not have an experience where we didn’t think the food was amazing.”

Blogger Review of Secrets the Vine: Carolyn in Carolina

We love to hear about guest experiences at Secrets Resorts & Spas! In a recent blog post, Carolyn in Carolina, a professional blogger with a focus on travel, shared her vacation at Secrets the Vine Cancun.

Here is a couple of excerpts from her review:

When we arrived at Secrets the Vine, we were greeted with a cool cloth and a glass of champagne. I knew then, I was going to love this place.

The service was amazing. They knew our names and room number. When Tom wanted shrimp ceviche instead of the fish ceviche on the menu, the chef made it for him. I once asked if they had watermelon juice and they didn’t so I just had water. About 15 minutes later, Irving the host, came to our table with watermelon juice just for me. And it kept coming until we left.

Overall, this is one of the best resorts I have ever been to. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The service was fantastic. The food was good. Drinks were delish. And the room was comfy and modern.

Blogger Review! Secrets The Vine Cancun

It’s always easy for us to share with you what we love about all of Secrets Resorts & Spas—although, we are a bit biased! Between the luxurious spas, pristine beaches and unique beach activities, you can easily lose yourself in the paradise that is Secrets Resorts & Spas.

So instead of taking our word for it, take a look at what popular travel blogger, Irene Levine, More Time to Travel, has to say about Secrets the Vine Cancun. In her glowing review about the resort, Irene cites several aspects that make Secrets the Vine stand out above the rest.

“One of the nicest things about a stay at Secrets The Vine is that guests pretty much know what their vacations will cost them from the time they book their rooms and airfare. They can place their wallets in their in-room
safe until checkout.”


“Wine plays a supporting role, too, in enhancing the flavors of the resort’s extensive culinary offerings. Much like the specialty restaurants popular on cruise ships, guests can choose from eight dining options, with open seating that allows them to dine when they wish.”


“On a typical day, singles and couples choose from yoga instruction on a grassy area beside the pool; bocce ball or beach volleyball; water aerobics or watersports; or horseshoes, bingo or board games.”

Blogger Review of Secrets Capri

We love to hear what guests have to say about their vacations to Secrets Resorts & Spas. In a recent post, blogger, Peridot Skys, spoke about one of her favorite vacations, which just so happened to be an 8-day trip to Secrets Capri Riviera Cancun.

Here’s an excerpt from her blog:

The BF and I have taken many trips together. Generally, ok always to a beach!  But there is one particular vaction we always talk about.  It was our trip to Playa Del Carmen. We spent 8 days at Secrets Capri Riviera on the beautiful beach and only left the resort once. We actually only left the pool for the ocean once as well. It was spectacular. It was all inclusive and adults only. No kids splashing in the pool or screaming at their siblings. We spent the day traveling to arrive, and we were greeted with cool wash rags and champagne to complete our registration. Our room was ground level and we could walk right out to the pool no more than 50 feet away. This is my view from my patio.

This is the pool early in the morning as you cross over the arched bridge over the water. I crossed this bridge every morning to reserve our chairs.
