I was fortunate enough to be invited along by freinds to a gathering in Pozos and was agreable to spending the night rather than drive back to San Miguel; My luck continued as we ended up staying at this charming and intimate jewel of a hotel. I was just astounded by how delicious the bed felt and I slept thoroughly.... More

I have stayed here many times but never for a full week. I didn't want to leave. (And am buying a house in Pozos so I won't be leaving.) In addition to being the host with the mostest, niCk was the patient guide/realtor who sold me on Pozos and my house-to-be. His staff is wonderful: cheerful, respectful, and chatty. And... More

El Secreto is a jewel. I like sophisticated, authentic and unique small hotels and this fits the bill. The staff and owners are so welcoming and accommodating. Stylishly decorated, immaculately clean rooms with comfy beds, linens and bathrooms have the feel of being a guest in a beautiful Mexican home. Breakfast on the patio is outstanding - totally delicious and... More

Nick and his staff at El Secreto have created a fantastic refuge from the crowds of Guanajuato and San Migeul de Allende. Excellent breakfast served just outside your bedroom door in a beautiful garden. Comfortable room with all the necessary amenities. I was visited daily by "Chispa", one of the pet dogs on the property and enjoyed his companionship. Nearby... More

I loved the quality and service at el secreto massage therapy also the tours, this a place to get away if you love the rustic not the modern and personally my favorite hotel i suggest it. I don't agree with your comment Julie sorry. Visit el secreto and convince yourself folks. Have a great day.

I would recommend staying here just to meet Nick, the owner, who was over the top helpful and friendly! He gave us great advice on our trip plans, helped us rent bikes, and gave us the BEST breakfast we had in Mexico.. including room service coffee. The cactus gardens are beautful. We loved the electric heated featherbed topper as its... More

This place is amazing--magical grounds that have been beautifully laid out by, wonderfully comfortable rooms with great beds, and breakfasts that are the best I've had anywhere. The hospitality given by Nick, one of the owners, is first rate and genuine. He truly cares about his guests but is never intrusive. Tucked away in a little corner of the main... More

Great owner (Nick) and staff (Juan and Leo) make Secreto a very pleasing place to stay. The rooms are good size with fireplace and wood provided. Breakfast included some of the best fruit we have had in a long time.

A little bit of Utopia in Pozos . . . that's what El Secreto Hotel and Art Galleria is. Let me entice you to step inside those doors. You'll be greeted with amazingly quaint and beautiful walkways and rooms filled with original art. The grounds are laden with colorful flowering gardens while butterfiles, exotic birds and a koi pond are... More
