Secrets the Vine Cancun

Cancun, Mexico

The hotel

This is Secrets first ever resort in Cancun and it’s a stunner! Adults-only and Unlimited-Luxury®, the design is cutting edge with every state-of-the-art facility you can think of. All rooms have private balconies revealing magnificent views of every sunrise and sunset over the ocean or lagoon. For true indulgence, head to the Secrets Spa by Pevonia®, inspired by local cave-like structures and cenotes; it’s a sublime experience, guaranteed to take your breath away! If yoga is more your thing, join like-minded others for some zen-like meditation in the open air or head to the pool for a spot of water aerobics. If you’ve always wanted to salsa, there are dancing lessons galore. After an action-packed day, or indeed a day just spent soaking up the sun — the choice is yours — head back to your beautifully appointed suite for sundowners on the terrace or enjoy a sommelier-led wine tasting with some of the world’s finest wine collections. When it comes to dining, again you’re spoilt for choice. The finest cuisine from around the world is served to you in a variety of restaurants, each one the perfect venue to linger in a while, soaking up the romantic atmosphere. Fancy a film after dinner? Some evenings there are films on the beach or dance the night away in the sports bar to the latest DJ-spun tunes!

Javier Cua & Jorge were our hosts and they were just amazing. We mentioned in conversation that it was our anniversary and they even brought out a surprise! They really bent over backwards for us, so happy with our visit & we will definitely be back again before our trip ends. Food was also amazing. The truffled mash was to die for! Read less

Lovely hotel but some aspects do let it down. We booked preferred which is supposed to mean additional benefits and unlimited luxury. However, the room was a little disappointing. First of all we had 2 double beds as opposed to a superking size bed which we had at our last hotel in mexico. This is not exactly very romantic. The beds were so small we ended up sleeping separately most nights. The air conditioning is good, however it goes off in the middle of the night so you wake up in a puddle of sweat. We were on the 23rd floor with lovely views over the lagoon & ocean, however the noise coming from the air conditioning vents on the ground floor kept awake most nights, they were very noisy. The food is very hit or miss. A great variety at breakfast and lunch at olio and by the pool were very good. We found there only to be 1 good restaurant, which was dragons. The rest of the restaurants were average. So even though we paid a fortune, we ended up eating out sometimes. The mimosas and beers are great. The sangria tastes like flat lemonade and ALL frozen cocktails are ridiculously sweet as they must use syrup. We realised that we had to take turns to get up early to put towels on loungers by the pool as there are not enough beds to accommodate the number of guests. On our last day, I went down at 8.15am, all the beds at our choice of pool had already been claimed so i took the only 2 i could find elsewhere. We went for breakfast, returned around 9.30 and our beds had been taken by other guests. Again, this is not 5 star luxury and was very frustrating and actually a little embarrassing. We never had this issue at our last hotel. There is a lack of atmosphere in the evenings. The best night we had was the mexican themed night. The food was awful but the mariachi band was good fun. The staff are so nice and helpful and do their best to make you happy and its obvious they work very hard. We didnt get to go in the ocean once as the seaweed was so bad, this is obviously not the hotels fault and cannot he controlled but this did have a negative impact on the stay overall. Too many issues which means we will not be returning to the hotel. I wish i had read a review like mine before we booked. Read less
