We will be booking here again. The grounds were beautiful and rooms were nice. Limited restaurants as it is the first week open after lock down so we were incredibly pleased with the choices. Spa services were excellent and priced nice. We loved the jet skis on the beach as well.

Secrets in Playa Mujeres is beautiful. The layout is interesting. Starting with the front desk, you work your way down a large winding hill, courtesy of a golf cart chauffeur, past the first set of buildings at the base that include the spa and Japanese restaurant, Himetsu. The resort is completely built inside of a wildlife conservation area, so don’t be surprised if you spot many iguanas and foxes! So cool. Anyways, as the golf cart continues on, you’ll pass the Dreams Resort, which you also have full access to. As the golf cart ride concludes, you’ll climb another hill and be at the rooms, pools, and the rear of the resort. All in all, it’s a little under a mile ride. The service is really great throughout the resort. About what you’d expect from a nicer place like this. To compare, we’ve also stayed at Excellence Playa Mujeres and Excellence El Carmen in the Dominican. Secrets and Dreams are slightly underneath Excellence in our humble opinions. The food is on-par, but the drinks are very watered down and less potent than those at Excellence. The Secrets/Dreams grounds and layout is nicer than Excellence. Not by a lot, but enough to notice. The spa is on-par with excellence as well. The rooms are slightly nicer than Excellence, and less expensive. We stayed in both a Junior Ocean Front and Master Ocean Front. Last but not least, the biggest con of Secrets is the party vibe. You have a lot of guests partaking in way too much consumption, partying, and just being plain ostentatious (obnoxious). At Excellence, you don’t find this, nor would they allow it. I understand having a good time, but guests at Secrets take it a bit too far...to the point we had to go to the beach or other, less chaotic areas of the resort to escape it. Read less

We were greeted with smiles welcome drink and a complimentary upgrade a preferred room first photo is view from our room. As far as Covid social distance was observe staff wore mask hand sanitizer station thru out the resort. They even sanitized you shoes and luggage upon arrival. This is a great place to come with your significant other and just relax and be pampered. We will definitely return Read less

This was my first all inclusive vacation. We were treated exceptionally well. We accepted the invitation to hear the promotional offer to get the resort credit. We did decide to take a low-level membership, and we were moved into the Preferred Club. The biggest perk to this was the non-buffet breakfast available to us every day at Oceana. The food was very good - not excellent - at all restaurants. Sometimes there was a wait, or the food was long in being delivered, but the drinks came freely, and the the staff were attentive. Our visit was impacted by COVID-19, so our last day was not ideal, but until then, it was outstanding. Likely due to COVID, the resort did not seem crowded; there were always beach chairs with umbrellas available. My husband golfed 4 times in the week, and the front staff were so supportive and friendly. We took the ferry to Isla Mujeres, which was a wonderful day away. Some of the resort is starting to look a little tired but it is very beautiful. The staff were excellent - and always tried to make us fell welcome and meet every need. The entertainment group were a bit disappointing, as they focused on the young crowd, and the “dance” lessons were simply an exhibit in gyration, but that was the biggest disappointment. We walked to the sister resort Dreams a couple of times. The “family” vibe at Dreams was very different than the Secret Adult vibe, an I know we made the right choice in picking Secrets. Read less

Loved this hotel and will go back. This was my first trip to a Secrets and I really enjoyed it. I have been to a lot of other AI but not really a big fan. I like nice hotels and nice food and I thought the Secrets didn't disappoint. We were in the preferred club which I would recommend. We would always go to the club for drinks which were better. We also got preferred seating at one of the restaurants for breakfast. We did go next door to the Dreams where we will bring the kids too. They had some fun waterslides and larger pools. We ate all of our meals at the Secrets and we were very pleased. I will be back and looking forward to trying out some of the other Secrets. Read less
