What about the secrets in Cancun? Do they allow topless sunbathing?

Also...there's a difference between "couples only" and "adults only"...did you see "adult children" or groups of just guys or girls at Secrets?? That's one thing I like about Sandals...everyone has someone..no groups going just to party...that sometimes ruins the nice atmosphere.

We've been to 2 Secrets (Secrets Excellence Riviera Cancun and Punta Cana). There were a lot of couples, but there were also groups of adults staying there. At Cancun there was a group of about 40 adults who were there on a trip with their company -- they mainly kept to themselves). At Punta Cana we saw a fair amount of adults who were there on group trips versus couple trips. We also saw this at several other "adult" resorts versus "couples resorts". At Breezes Bahamas there were more single adults there than we expected and it really spoiled the romantic mood but made for some interesting entertainment when we watched everyone try to pick up each other and impress each other.//Maria

We went to Secret Punta Cana when it was named Royal Uvero Alto in 2001. It was very nice but I would never go again because the water is so rought. We are beach people and the red flag is up half the week. We returned to Punta Cana last March to the new Bahis Principe and again the water was bad and we had red flages again. For that, we will never return to Punta Cana. You pay for a week at the beach and you can't go in. I will stick with Jamica at Christmas and Cuba Varadero in March at Sandals.

Doglover...I have been to Punta Cana at least 10 times and have never seen a red flag day....We always stayed at the Barcelo properties and return because of the beautiful beach....Sorry you had a bad experience...We have found Jamaica very beautiful and we will return again but Punta Cana's beach is so much better.
