The Secret Garden is a fantastic place to stay if you are a down to earth person who likes to hang with the locals. What may at first seem like a plain-ish place opens up to be a little gem. We stayed in one of the bungalows. The owner has made every effort to make the rooms like little homes.... More

My wife and I didn't spend much time here as we got in late and departed early. The hotel is located two blocks off the main road, close enough to have easy access to shops and food but far enough back so as to be very quiet except for the birds in the morning. The room was clean and cozy... More

We enjoyed our stay in the Secret garden hotel, located in the town of Tulum. Our bungalow was clean and quiet with excellent wifi. You might want to know that there is only a curtain between the bathroom and the bedroom. No AC but fans. There is a nice communal lounge area in the garden and the hosts were very... More

We stayed 5 nights at Secret Garden Hotel and really enjoyed our stay. Our room was fantastic, exactly as advertised. The bed was soft - great for a good nights sleep - and the room was very clean. The service was excellent, one of the staff members stayed back until after 10pm the night we arrived to allow us entry... More

This is a lovely little place that feels safe, has screens on the windows and is adorable. Tulum is a magical place. I've been going for 20 years and new places are opening all over town and the beach. For the price, you can't do better for a pretty and comfortable small hotel in the town. Secret Garden is not...

It's not the easiest hotel to find, as it isn't on Google maps and we drove past the road a few times in the dark. However, once we found it it was good. Only a 5 minute walk into town, and probably a 35 minute cycle to the beach. The room was fairly basic but clean, spacious and had everything... More

Really great place, friendly atmoshere, and extremely helpful staff who go the extra mile (and more!) to help and make sure you have a great time in Tulum. The little garden is a gem and the extras of the free hot water coffee WiFi and snacks is an excellent touch. Joshua is to be congratulated for making this place the... More

Secret Garden is tucked away a few blocks behind the main road. It has a very chilled look, with cool seating, buddha statues and candles lit at night. It has a jungly feel to it, which on the negative side makes it all a bit dark and airless. Luckily it wasn't hot when we were there 2 weeks ago otherwise... More

I got an extremely warm welcome here: the staff are great. But the room I stayed in (with a thatch roof) smelled strongly of damp and drains. It was full of mosquitos and there were cockroaches (picture attached). I had to light incense for the smell. There's plenty of hot water in the shower, but the tap in the bathroom... More
