Staff in general were pleasant. E-team is completely hands off regarding the yoga. Showed me where to teach, mats, sign. I never saw them the rest of the week. I took a group of twelve here as a retreat. It was a perfect resort for my group. Resort is clean, sleek and I loved being on the hotel zone part of Cancun.

We had a great entertainment staff (Daniel, and Leonardo were awesome). So many good wait staff and bartenders: Eric at Olio, Armando and Joel at the the bar, Alejandro at the Seaside Grill, Juan at Nebbiolo, Adrian at the market cafe, German at the Seaside restaurant and Leidi at Olio were all amazing! And our rooms were always well taken care of by the maid staff!

Yoga class was on the deck of the sea salt grill. Thank you for another amazing yoga teaching vacation! I wouldn't change a thing! Thank you for another amazing yoga teaching vacation! I wouldn't change a thing! Hotel staff and entertainment team were amazing, they are my favorite of all resorts I've been to. Vacation was amazing. Entertainment team promoted my classes. I taught yoga @ 8:30 & 9:30 each morning. I had 2-11 people per class. Yoga mats are provided. I planned vinyasa classes but found that the perfect class to meet the needs of the guests was a short slow vinyasa flow followed with some long yin holds. I brought straps with me which were very much appreciated by the guests & I borrowed pillows from the Barefoot Grill lounge area to use as bolsters. I provided physical assists to deepen the poses & the guests loved it!!! The guests promoted the classes to other guests. Experience was great, it was very comfortable and welcoming

I was shown where the mats/towels were located. It was my responsibility to bring all to teaching area and return to entertainment hut. At this location it was not a problem as the distance to travel was not far. The Sea Salt area for teaching is not ideal for the second class as it is in full sun. A few guests left because of that. I let the entrainment know and they provided and umbrella for area, unfortunately that only shades 1/2 guests. It was not until I asked that they told me about inside area (pool table area). I appreciate all the work that Fitbodies does to make this happen for instructors. This particular resort was not my favorite. Because of its location the property is smaller; less spread out and not surrounded by nature. I found this to be a less relaxing resort than others that I have experienced.

The Entertainment Team is fabulous The hotel was celebrating its 10th anniversary so they put on a spectacular show with several musical groups, dancing, a fashion show and a champagne toast. They were setting up several days in advance and the party flower seamlessly Fitbodies rocks! The Vine never disappoints. Check in was smooth and I had the best room yet. Everything about the hotel is geared to a luxury experience.

Sleek, high rise resort on the hotel zone in Cancun. 15 minutes from the airport so your vacation starts right away! Great waves here so if you like to body surf you'll enjoy this area. E-team is friendly but after meeting them I never saw them again. Yoga/Pilates taught on terrace of the Sea Salt Grill. It gets HOT. You may need to move furniture in order to find some shade for your participants. Good attendance at all classes. Lowest number was 2 (during a rain event/moved us to a hard to find room) and largest class was 18. Resort has mats which is nice, but they are in sad/dirty shape. Plenty of towels available to use as props/bolsters/extra padding. Two classes 8:30 am and 9:30 am. If you are looking for adults only, not too much party or nightlife, this is a great resort. My room was amazing 1702. Even number rooms are on the quieter side of the hotel. Odd number rooms face the Hard Rock which has loud events until 2 am nearly every night. Food was good. This resort features wine (Secret the Vine). They have a sommelier who is excellent in pairing your meal with your wine. You will pay extra for a nice bottle of wine, but highly recommend this if you want to elevate your meal experience. Resort gym has everything you need to get a workout. Spa services were amazing. Best 80 minute massage I've ever had. Overall great resort that I would absolutely return to!

I taught yoga on the deck near the pool. All staff were wonderful! Wonderful experience! It was a pleasure teaching yoga to students from around the world. Atmosphere was beautiful. The only suggestion I would have is for the resort to upgrade their yoga mats. They were quite old and not in great condition. Yoga props would be happy helpful as well – blocks, bolsters, straps.

This resort was amazing, fun and relaxing! I’m teaching again as soon as I can since the process was so smooth and well worth it.

I used my own phone and portable speaker for music. class is on the deck of Sunset Grill. This booking experience is great, I would not change a thing! The hotel staff were all amazing including the entertainment team. Thank you Fit Bodies for another amazing yoga teaching vacation. The whole experience was amazing! I transferred from Dreams Playa Mujeres to Secrets the Vine. Transfer was booked via Fit Bodies before I travelled. Amstar provided the transfer & they were amazing! They arrived right at the scheduled time & were very pleasant. I felt very safe.

Third time teaching ypga here. I love that it is close to the airport! It is a high rise with a bit of a Miami vibe. Three very nice pools plus a preferred pool. Two yoga classes a day at 8:30 and 9:30. Mats are available. We covered them with towels. I picked up towels, mats and water bottles for 8 each morning. Classes were usually under that size. We enjoyed many incredible breakfasts and lunches in the buffet. Fantastic desserts! Always enjoy Dragons, Nebbiolo and Bluewater Grill. We watched the end of the Masters Golf tournament in the Sports Grill and enjoyed salads and burgers. One afternoon I did the water circuit in the spa. Very nice! Allow two hours for it. Visited Bamboo Spa across the street twice for $50. 50 minute massages. Really love this resort.

I've now taught at 4 other resorts in this area, and The Vine is my absolute favorite. You teach 2 back to back classes 8:30 and 9:30 in either the deck in front of the Sea Salt Grill or the game room. I made this a health vacation for myself. Plenty of fresh fruit, grilled veggies, lean meat, fresh juices and exercise. I taught my classes, ran on the beach, swam for hours and hours in the ocean, danced on the deck when they did dance lessons. Sat for hours on my ocean view balcony reading books. My absolute favorite restaurant was the Asian one--their sushi was incredible, but really all the restaurants were great. Best service ever. We were treated like royalty. I think Secrets the Vine has ruined me for any other teaching vacation or resort. It was simply the best we've ever had.

SECRETS THE VINE is no secret. Many fellow Fit Pro’s have shared with me how special this resort is, and now that I have returned from my first visit there, I understand why. There is a vibe here that matches no other. With three big fabulous pool to choose from, pool days can be what ever you like. I swam laps in one, partied in another, and chilled out in the third. All the places to eat in the evenings were special. Delicious food and exceptional service. Perhaps the best part is that there are no bad rooms in this place. Every room faces the ocean, you are sure to enjoy a fabulous view throughout your stay. I’ve been traveling for Suzelle and Fit Bodies Inc since 2002, and as someone who has enjoyed countless resorts in many countries, I found Secrets The Vine to be a very unique resort.

Resort staff was very courteous and professional.Entertainment team was very supportive and pleasant. It was wonderful experience to travel and teach yoga through Fit Body Travel at the Secret Vine Resort.Every day, I had two classes to teach,I taught according to the level of students.Resort staff , entertainment team was very polite, courteous and supportive. Used beach towels for yoga teachings along with mats as beach towels as props to support tail bone while lying down or sitting position.Atmosphere was pleasant and bright sunshine every day.Some days 8.30 Am class was busy other days 9.30 class was busier.Due to Corona Virus I changed my flight one day earlier as restrictions on the travel by President travel.I explained to the entertainment dept. and also informed to the Fit body travel.They all were very cooperative and supportive.Overall it was pleasant experience to spend quality time with my husband and enjoyed healthy delicious meals.Had great fun teaching variety of students from variety of cultural back grounds.My husband supports me a lot during my teaching vacations, being retired physician and General Surgeon enjoy the holistic part of my yoga teachings.I teach Ananda yoga, means warm up on the floor ,hatha yoga {asanas]focusing on breath mostly. Relaxation with savanna ,few minutes sitting meditation and praying for the well being of others.Special thanks to Fit Body Travel staff.

I just returned from my first travel experience since COVID. I can say that we felt safe in the airports and planes and extremely safe at Secrets The Vine! As with all Secrets we have stayed, the staff are incredible and grateful to have you there. All staff wear masks and shields, they are constantly cleaning, there is hand sanitizer available throughout the resort, and the spacing at restaurants and pools has incorporated social distancing. These precautions made it easy to enjoy ourselves. While originally scheduled to teach Yoga and Cycling, because all gyms are closed, I taught 8:30 and 9:30 Yoga classes. Even with the very limited capacity at the resort, I had guests in every class. The entertainment team arrives at 9am, so be prepared to be self-sufficient and check in with them daily if you have any needs. We actually ran out of mats on some days (only 6 available) and I usually did not use a mat so guests could use them. Helpful hints…. 1)There is a shop across the street from the main entrance that does laundry. It is $10 a load. You drop it off and pick it up 4 hours later and everything is laundered and folded 2) It is turtle nesting season. Don’t go to bed too early. After dark, take a walk on the beach and watch for turtles. It is amazing to watch these creatures slog through the sand to find the perfect nesting place, expend a tremendous amount of energy digging, lay their eggs, cover up the hole, and return to the water. 3) Bring extra sanitizing wipes for the mats. It was unclear if the mats were sanitized nightly and with no time between classes, mats need to be cleaned between use. Guests were grateful that I had wipes available at the beginning of each class. 4) Engage in conversations with the staff and reward them for their service. They love to talk about their families and many will remember your name and preference and will greet you daily even if you are not in the area they are working. 5) Try all of the restaurants! We were disregarding Market Café thinking it was buffet. We went to Market Café for dinner on the last night and had our best meal of the trip! 6) You will need to take your cell phone to restaurants because you will scan QR codes to get the menus. 7) Fill out the Immigration forms online, print them and take them with you. There is also a health survey at the airport you need to complete before going through TSA. Find the QR code and fill it out on your phone to avoid the paper/pen method.

This is about my 9th teaching vacation with Fitbodies. When I checked in, I asked for the name of the Entertainment Manager (Fernando) and then went to look for him at the pool - Fernando showed we were the mats were and the process to follow for the next week. I taught from Dec 9-14.2019. Two classes, 45 mins each at 830am and 930am on the Sea Salt Grill Deck overlooking the main pool and the sea behind that. I had about 2-4 guests for 830 Vinyasa Flow and then about 4-10 in the 930am Yoga Sculpt class. I had a few regulars but pretty much new guests everyday. It is a beautiful hotel, the food is really one of the best I have experienced at Secrets. How wonderful to vacation and then to still look after your health with teaching classes! I highly recommend this location. It is a high rise hotel, beautiful rooms and they all work so incredibly hard to make sure guests have a lovely vacation.

I taught a beginner level power series based in vinyasa style. Class sizes ranged from 1-10 students. The 8:30 AM class was far more popular than the 9:30 AM class. I would estimate most students were in the 20-50 age range. By the time the 9:30 class was going, the pool area was getting busy and the restaurant was prepping lunch service (as well as the sun was getting HOT), so I would recommend staring the classes at 8:00 and 9:00 AM.

Just returned from The Vine and can't wait to go back! The food, the room, the location are excellent. They have the most beautiful gym on the 12th floor. Floor to ceiling windows ! You look out at the beautiful blue green ocean and sky as you work out. Classes are held downstairs outside on the Sea Salt Terrace. I taught Yoga @ 8:30 and Pilates @ 9:30. Classes were small as occupancy was low but that gave me a chance to really tailor the classes to the guests abilities and desires. The Vine is a world class resort and had guests from all over. In one morning class, I had guests from Korea, Japan, Bolivia, Argentina, Columbia, Russia, Ireland, England, Canada and the United States. We all spoke the language of yoga. The BEST Yet

Outstanding resort! I taught at 8:30 and 9:30 yoga. (May 2019) This is my second visit here, first time teaching. We first visited in 2013 when it first opened and the property looks just as new as it did in 2013. Secrets the Vine has something extra special going on here! The service was outstanding, food wonderful, E-Team was great and so much poolside entertainment. I cannot say enough about STV. I cannot wait to go back!!

This Hotel was lovely! There were lots of activities and the Entertainment Team were great! The ocean and beach are nice, 3 different pools are really nice too. If you can, do the wine tasting and the Chef's Experience. Ask one of the Entertainment Team about the chef's cooking class. This is the 5th different Secrets we have been to, and we would definitely go back. I taught an 8:30 Yoga class and a 9:30 Pilates class. Classes were well attended with 6-14 people at each class. They advertise the classes every day in their Sundial newsletter and on the daily activities app.

I fell in love with the Entertainment team here. We participated in daily activities with them - water aerobics, Blackjack, mojito & margarita making lessons, tequila tasting, dance lessons, wine tasting. We even got in on a private cooking class with Chef Humberto. This activity is held on Tuesday afternoons for only 10 guests. Speak to one of the Entertainment team about this! I had a class participant one day who I found out was a fellow yoga instructor. I shared The Fitbodies website with her, and encouraged her to start taking her own teaching vacations. She’s now one of the newest members of Fitbodies!

I taught 55 minute yoga class and 45 minute pilates class back to back. 12-14 people attended yoga each day. Pilates was much smaller usually 3-8 participants but it grew each day! I had many repeat students who seemed to really enjoy the classes and appreciated the professionalism of Fit Bodies.Secrets the Vine is Fantastic. It was my 5th stay there. They are in need of new mats and more mats. Many people had to use towels on the plank surface which is hard on the knees.
