My husband and I visited Isla back in 2011 and stayed at an all inclusive nearby. Though we were happy with our hotel, we felt that all inclusive is not necessary at this island due to the easy accessibility of restaurants and bars. With that being said, we decided to stay somewhere that was not all inclusive but that was... More

We've been going to the island since 2002, so we watched Secreto get built (and redone). We finally decided to try it last week and were very happy with the stay. Pricing is a little high, but prices in general on Isla are going up, and you are on Playa Norte which is perfect. Rooms are good sized, clean, modern,... More

My wife and I went to Hotel Secreto on our honeymoon in 2006. Amazing service, amazing rooms, amazing food, and amazing ocean views! If you're looking for a romantic getaway in a quiet place, this is it!

Appropriately named, you would walk right by the "secret" entrance to this hotel if not greeted by the awaiting staff. This boutique hotel with only 12 rooms is VERY private, chic modern, and clean with a lovely lobby/bar area, an exquisite infinity pool and sundeck overlooking the ocean, and large clean rooms, each with a wonderful daybed on the balcony....

My fiance and I stayed at Hotel Secreto in April of this year. We had such a fantastic time, all thanks to the wonderful staff of the hotel and the pride they obviously take in doing their jobs to the best of their ability. We actually stayed in two different rooms throughout the week that we were there (since we... More

We just returned from our honeymoon at Hotel Secreto. The hotel is small, chic, and very private- perfect for the quiet honeymoon we were looking for. The decor and design in very European looking- a definite "hip" factor. Never more than two people out at the pool- and most the time there were none. The beach is not the best... More

If you really need a break THIS is the place. Just 12 rooms, an enormous bed (firm but with a nice and fluffy mattres cover), a wonderful view of the ocean, delicious breakfast (fruit, bread & butter) and a nice pool. The service is very kind and helpful. And the best part is that you´re only 3 blocks away from... More

We just returned from 7 nights at Hotel Secreto and wish we were still there! This was our 4th stay at the hotel, and we are already getting dates figured out for August. It seems like each time we return it just gets better. Omar, Rogelio, Victor & Jose go above and beyond to make our stay absolutely fabulous! From... More

While the main focus of our trip was getting out in the water to swim with whale sharks, the comfort and exceptional service offered by Hotel Secreto made the entire vacation a pleasant and memorable one! Our kids (9 and 14 at the time) enjoyed it as much as my husband and I did!

We just stayed at Hotel Secreto for five night in early March. We had an amazing vacation and enjoyed the staff, location and the vibe. It is a few blocks from the main shopping/restaurant area and a couple of blocks from Playa Norte. The staff is helpful, friendly and always available. The rooms were comfortable and the views/balconies were great.... More
