So let me start by saying, “my favorite” might not be your favorite, but in my opinion, Secrets Capri adult only all inclusive resort in Riviera Maya is the jewel of all the Secrets Resorts. While all their other resorts are quite modern in décor, Secrets Capri which is the oldest, has a more traditional yet classy look and feel. You get the feel that you are in a luxury property, yet you feel comfortable right from the get go! On my recent trip to Mexico, I stayed at the newer and more modern, Secrets Silversands property. While at Silversands, I talked with many of their staff whose faces lit up with a big smile when I mentioned I would be seeing Secrets Capri on this trip as well. Apparently, Secrets Capri is also a staff favorite as well!
Secrets Capri doesn’t have a dozen pools, but the main pool at the resort is well sized and shaped for the property. Because the property is smaller and more compact, all the activities can be found at the main pool. Let’s just say the energy is upbeat and active in this central location. The beach at Secrets Capri is very nice although like most properties, they are in the process of trying to rebuild the beach after the wrath of storms that have hit the area in the last several years. So far, they are doing a great job.
The rooms are very similar to other Secrets properties, ie. nice Jacuzzi tub with a luxurious bathroom with double vanities etc. The biggest difference is the décor and room style. At Capri, you have the dark wood furniture with nice warm blue and golden tones for the soft goods. Other Secrets Resorts have a sleek, modern décor with lots of white or neutral tones and lots of glass. I personally preferred Capri and the dark mahogany door that separated the toilet room from the rest of the bathroom versus the glass door at Secrets Silversands. Of course, décor is a matter of taste and all the Secrets properties are very well appointed both in the rooms and in the common areas.
Speaking of common areas, I love the luxurious lobby that spills down via a grand staircase (again dark wood with wrought iron railing) to a lower common area with restaurants and a sports bar. In the courtyard, they have a beautiful fountain that warms the area up. Like other Secrets properties you have an assortment of dining options including their signature Himitsu Pan Asian restaurant, but what I find a little different at Secrets Capri are the two restaurants that offer seaside dining. Cactus grill is their ceviche and taco bar and a great place to dine seaside for lunch and it is also available for private dinner parties at night. Oceania is a gorgeous restaurant where you can have an intimate table for two overlooking the beautiful Caribbean. Of course, Secrets Capri has an Italian Restaurant, steakhouse and their Coco Café where you can get your morning latte and light snacks, including the most delicious cookies.
Like the other Secrets properties, destination weddings are very popular at Secrets Capri and their wedding staff do an amazing job, taking the stress out of wedding planning. And I would be remiss if I failed to mention their Spa by Pevonia! If you are into awards etc., Secrets Capri is an AAA Four Diamond property.
Finally, I just have to mention something that is important to many of my clients. Secrets Capri is an ALL PREFERRED CLUB property. Most clients prefer the Preferred Club amenities like the upgraded mini bar or upgraded bath amenities and the fact that everyone at the resort is enjoying the same perks, eliminates the “class status” stigmas found at other resorts. Yes, you can have a more expensive room with a direct oceanfront view, but all the preferred club perks are for everyone at the property regardless of room category.
