LatinFlyer.com Reviews Secrets the Vine

Secrets The Vine Cancun recently had the pleasure of hosting travel writer Mark Chestnut, founder of LatinFlyer.com, a blog dedicated to travel in South America, Central America, Mexico and the Caribbean. Mark described his stay in a recent post “Secrets The Vine — All-Inclusive Luxury for Adults in Cancun” and we’ve pulled some of our favorite quotes to share with you!

Mark begins by saying of his trip to Secrets The Vine: “It ended up being one of the best Cancun hotel experiences my husband and I have ever had. We liked it so much that I felt compelled to put together a list of the things that this hotel does right:

• The Design: Stylish and contemporary, but tasteful and subdued.
• The Greeting: The people in the lobby knew my name the minute I walked in the door.
• The Dining: Elegant, attractive, a-la-carte restaurants that serve fine cuisine — all included, and no reservations required.
• The Wristbands: Or rather, the lack thereof. Unlike most all-inclusive resorts, Secrets The Vine doesn’t require guests to wear wristbands, so there’s no uncomfortable plastic thing clinging to your wrist.”

He also found that Secrets The Vine is the perfect place for wine aficionados: “Secrets The Vine takes its wine-inspired name seriously. The hotel’s wine cellar has some 4,500 bottles, and daily wine tastings allow guests to learn more about wine from Mexico and other countries — including Argentina, Chile, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal and Australia, to name just a few.”

Mark enjoyed sampling our various culinary options: “One of our most elegant dinners at Secrets The Vine was at Bluewater Grill, where we savored expertly prepared steak; we also loved the flavors of Japan, China and Thailand that were served on the sophisticated menu at Dragons. I especially enjoyed the Thai chicken soup, made with coconut milk, lemon and cilantro, and the Mongolian pork with broccoli and water chestnuts.”

And there was no trouble finding the perfect place to spend the day: “There are three large infinity pools at Secrets The Vine, making it easy to enjoy quiet time or a more festive ambiance, depending on your mood. The beach is beautiful and well-equipped with lounge chairs and umbrellas. After dark, you can watch a game in the sports bar, or sample cocktails at the Red Vine Piano Bar, an elegant venue where dancing isn’t uncommon later at night.”

Five Things to Pack For Your Honeymoon!

Packing for your honeymoon can be easily overlooked in the midst of planning a wedding. To guarantee you don’t forget a thing, we compiled a list of essentials for your romantic getaway to Secrets Resorts & Spas!

Experience endless romance with a honeymoon at Secrets Resorts & Spas!

Experience endless romance with a honeymoon at Secrets Resorts & Spas!

1. Important Travel Documents: Probably one of the most obvious but often forgotten things to bring are important travel documents such as your passport, plane tickets, photo ID, currency and credit cards.  After all, without them, there would be no honeymoon! Also, it’s recommended to write down the details of your travel and accommodation including times, dates and directions to get to each place, along with contact details.

2. Medicine: Sometimes it takes your body some time to adjust to being in a new place and climate. Be prepared with medicines such as aspirin, remedies for any stomach upsets and allergy tablets. The last thing you want is to waste time on your honeymoon being sick so pack wisely and bring whatever normally works for you!

3. Capture the Moments: The honeymoon is your first trip together as a married couple and you’ll want to remember it! Be sure to pack a good digital camera, plus chargers/batteries, and a few memory cards, just in case. If you’re planning lots of water activities, it might be worth investing in an underwater camera to capture all of the fun!

4. Entertainment: Pack a variety of entertainment options such as an iPod or small game console for long days on the beach, relaxing in the room with your partner or the inevitable waits at the airport terminal. Also, stock up on some good reading material such as books, magazines and newspapers for when you need a little time for yourself.

5. Sun Protection: Sunscreen is the most important item to pack, because no one wants to deal with painful sunburn on their honeymoon. Avoid the shame of looking like a lobster and make sure to pack enough sunscreen for the entire duration of your honeymoon. Also, packing sunglasses and hats is another great way to keep your skin protected during your trip!

Now that you know exactly what to pack, what are you waiting for?! We have several different honeymoon packages available to suit your needs. Book your romantic honeymoon at Secrets Resorts & Spas today!
