8/10 Very good

The cyclical weather of Dominica was the perfect metaphor for our trip to Secret Bay. The sun: Akima, our villa host, was one of the highlights of our stay. Pleasant and kind, she made us feel welcomed. Our villa was clean, private, and well appointed. Perhaps we were expecting more of a sea view, but we grew to enjoy the lush rainforest while watching the indigenous birds from our covered deck. We were pleasantly surprised by our plunge pool (Hillside Ti-Fey IV). It had a waterfall edge, was deeper than other plunge pools we have experienced, and was warm. We spent several afternoons there sipping drinks. Restaurant Zing Zing's menu was both carefully curated and whimsical. Zing Zing's open air setting made it a delightful place to enjoy a meal. The recently hired mixologist crafted some fine drinks both at Zing Zing and the hotel pool. Also of note was Secret Bay's spa. Listening to the waves while having a massage was relaxing. The rain: Our luggage took a separate vacation remaining in Puerto Rico. After traveling since 3am and jumping through countless Covid protocols (understandable), it put a major damper on our arrival. Judging by the other hotel guests also missing bags and the number of people we witnessed at the Dominica airport filling out missing luggage papers, it seems like this is more than an isolated incident. Several days later, we did get our luggage after repeated follow up on our part.

10/10 Exceptional

This is the nicest hotel I've ever been to. The villas are enormous. We have a very large bedroom, kitchen/sitting area, outdoor sitting area, and a whole downstairs area with hammock and pool. The hotel's amenities are pretty solid -- private beach, equipment to use, etc. You're mostly paying for the room. The service is a bit less polished than what you might expect given the price, but that may partly be a consequence of the location. The room isn't cleaned every day, for example. We had some trouble with the meals -- your room attendant isn't a trained chef. Just remember that you're paying for the room and the views. On that account, I thought it was totally worth it. The concierge, Lenita, is also pretty great and did a very good job in arranging activities for us.

Best Kept Secret
Secret Bay is a boutique hotel nestled on a beautiful cliff side which calls for wonderful views with tons of privacy and lushness with access to a private beach. The front staff was excellent at getting us situated when we came in after a long travel. The following day they continued their hospitality while setting up all our activities while in Dominica. Each villa is assigned their personal house keeper who makes sure that all your meal and cleaning needs are met. The Food was delicious and the kitchen staff is always ready to offer you a snack before dinner :). I would definitely return and upgrade for a villa with a pool.

We will be back!
Great location on the beach. The villa had a great view of the ocean. My husband and I stayed in Ti-Fey villa. Great service from room attendants. Our drivers were nice. I was not disappointed at all. Great island. The island was not commercialized. We had fun excursions. We will definitely be back.

A sunset with a view
We came to Secret Bay and didn't know what to expect. We stayed in the Zabuco I and it was amazing. The staff came in each day, cleaned the villa, and would get us our requested items we needed for the next few days as requested. The staff were so helpful and so nice. We would recommend this place to anyone. If you'd like to relax or simply adventure each day like we did then this is the place for you. Also the pool was always warm even when it was raining. We will be going back next year!
