From the time that we arrived until the time that we left El Secreto, each detail of our stay was thought of in advance.
Upon arrival we were greeted by Ken, Manager of El Secreto with watermelon drinks and refreshing towels after a very long journey. Ken is one of the nicest, professional and accommodating resort managers we have ever met. Upon walking on to the premises to check-in (which is paradise btw), we were given a 5 minute complimentary neck and shoulder massage... We knew then that we were in store for a truly relaxing experience.
The staff is beyond attentive, friendly and helpful with any need you may have. The rooms are designed for both romance and pure relaxation. The resort is extremely secluded and quiet but each villa also provides privacy with an enclosed outdoor shower and private hot tub.
The restaurant and bar serve up incredible drinks with very helpful staff to answer any questions along the way. Room service is also beautifully delivered for a relaxing dinner in your private villa. Ken, Sherry and Norvani were some of the most helpful people I have ever met while vacationing and ensured that our tour, requests and meals were well in order. The rooms are also amazing with King size Tempur-Pedic beds, controllable mood lighting, etc.
If you're giving the opportunity to stay for El Secreto, take it. The only problem is that you may never want to leave!
A great hotel on the beach with separate thatched roof rooms. Food is the best you could ask for and the service is excellent. They have a dive center on site. Only one problem is you have to take a boat to town, but you can walk to two other hotels if you want to take in a different meal. You can rent a boat with a guide to take you fishing first then snorkel then you go and have a bar-b-q what you brought in fishing. That was so much fun.
