My husband and I went to secrets playa mujeres to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. Our trip was amazing. We were treated like a King and Queen throughout our stay. The resort is beautiful, clean and filled with friendly staff. There were numerous food options, endless drinks and plenty of options whether you want a quiet evening or an upbeat evening. The beaches were well cleaned each morning. We had no issues with the seaweed. There were a few individuals we need to recognize who went over and beyond to make our stay amazing. 1. Julio ~ greeted us on our arrival in the preferred check in. He was full of valuable information about the area and also introduced us to an opportunity to be able to travel more often. 2. Bethany ~ sweetheart all around. Thank you for all you did to help set up the yaht ride and make sure any question we had was answered. 3. Angel (black angel, Mexican chocolate) ~ part of the entertainment team. He was always smiling, always dancing, and full of energy! he got me playing volleyball and judging secrets idol...things I usually would not partake in. He has a love for entertaining and will go out of his way to make sure you have an enjoyable experience. 4. Ross ~ our pool concierge. Always smiling, always positive and willing to help in any way he could. He brought me a raft any time I asked for one, made sure we had towels, and umbrella if we needed one. He went over and beyond to make sure we had an enjoyable week. 5&6 maricella and diana ~ our pool servers~ top notch service! they called us by name, checked on us frequently and many times would have our drink ready before we asked! They never slowed down! Those two worked hard to serve everyone around us! there job is not easy but they never stopped smiling and serving! We loved seeing them every day! I would recommend secrets playa mujeres to anyone considering it! It was simply amazing! Read less

My husband and I had a fantastic time. Here’s some info that will hopefully add to info in other reviews. Nice touches: - we were celebrating our anniversary and hubby’s birthday. Birthday banner on door, champagne chilled, special shout outs on the birthday/anniversary announcements on the iPad and 10 min after we arrived a chocolate cake arrived via room service with a happy anniversary message. Thoughtful! - restaurants have these wooden bag holders for your purses/beach bags so you don’t need to jostle for space on your chair - golf carts were quick so it’s no problem to scoot from Secrets to Dreams or from rooms to restaurants - cigar rolling class was very informative and fun - kitchen tour was also informative and worth the 1 hour (1/2 hr tour and sampling, 1/2 hr wine sampling) - very clean and we all wore hair nets to keep it clean! - good entertainment crew - between hubby and I we were regulars at aqua aerobics, beach/pool volleyball, and crazy games. Some classes were more fun than others. I was particularly a fan of Berenice and Miguel. Tips - at Dreams check out the water slides (20 second cart ride) and Dolce (Ice cream shop - 2 min walk from slides) - loved the smoothie bar. I wasn’t drinking so brought a tumbler and at the end of breakfast would make a watermelon slushie with extra ice for a refreshing and healthier option (I added spinach, beet and carrot too for a little extra health kick with minimal impact to taste). Also made a natural pina colada with pineapple and coconut. Note- you can make smoothies during breakfast and lunch but some days they don’t have someone at the station (though they still have the cut up fruit) - instead you just give your plate to your waiter and they bring it back to be blended. - some waiters are more attentive than others - we loved the Luis/Orlando team at the breakfast buffet and requested their section for the 2nd half of our stay. They took such pride in their work - in an authentic way not a “let’s translate this into a tip” kinda aggressive way. - the Sundial (activities) is on the Room iPad and tv in front of breakfast buffet. Take a picture of the events on the iPad for quick reference throughout the day. Note some activities noted didn’t take place so if you’re keen on things like kayak tour, rifle shooting, pole dancing - check with entertainment team first. Also the ping pong table and batting cages were broken when we were there. - we were In Room 3123 - which was a bit noisy - however very convenient and close to barefoot grill and pool, and I wasn’t bothered as I brought ear plugs. It also had a slight oceanview which was a perk since it was listed as gardenview. - umbrellas take some getting used to to open. Pull on the spokes a bit to fan it out before pulling up on the middle portion. Rogelio was a beach/pool concierge that was very friendly and helpful. Susie was a lovely bartender that served us on the beach. Marcelo was great serving us at the barefoot grill. - enjoyed the rock show, casino night, and silence party (I was a big doubter of it, but it was super fun) - fantastic housekeeping - couldn’t be happier. Favs at each Restaurant Oceana - lunch - fish tacos / dinner - Thai salmon, crab cake appetizers Seaside grill - lunch - fish tacos, lime sorbetto dessert (they closed for Reno’s so we didn’t get to try for dinner) Barefoot grill - lunch - chicken fingers, cheeseburgers, quesadilla Portofino - osso buco, burrata salad, panacotta dessert, carbonara spaghetti Bordeaux - mussels appetizer (ask for a double order, single order is 3 mussels); French onion soup, salmon (ordered it 3 times!!!), lamb, duck breast, creme brûlée Himitsu hibachi - loved the shrimp, but all tasted yummy to us. We had a fun group which made the show even more enjoyable. - room service - we did a few late night requests (11:30pm or 12) and it took closer to 1.5hrs vs the 1 hr anticipated time, so just be aware if you’re tired! Also if you choose burger you need to click “more options” to choose how you want it cooked as medium rare is the default- we chose medium well. My favs were the Caesar salad, chicken soup, and cheeseburger. My husband also enjoyed the chicken wings. Note - they typically call shortly after you submit your order via iPad- just in case you jump in the shower later or are “busy”. ;) Overall - we enjoyed ourselves and would recommend! Read less

We stayed a week for our honeymoon and it was a wonderful experience! The staff is attentive and very accommodating! Edher will take excellent care of you at the breakfast buffet, which has the most delicious food here! If you go out on the beach, be sure to find Eloisa Martinez! She will bring you whatever you need all day with a smile! She is wonderful. The only restaurant that was a little disappointing was the Mexican Restaurant, both service and food. But all the other places here are fantastic! We will be back for our anniversary! Read less
