The hotel was tucked away in a quiet residential area, and dining and shopping options were just a few minutes of walk away on the main avenue of Tulum. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the room was clean and comfortable. Having A/C definitely helped us stay cool on hot summer days. Overall, this hotel was of great... More

Secret Garden Hotel in Tulum is really recommendable. The nice garden, the welcoming owner and staff, and the low key vibe makes it truly a place of relaxation. And secret it is as well. We came in our own car and had troubles finding our way, but when we arrived it was all worth it!

Very relaxing atmosphere, great staff and information. We arrived and were met by Joshua, who took the time to discuss all the nearby spots and restaurants worth visiting. Excellent recommendations. Quiet and within walking distance of restaurants and shops in town, too. A few km from the beach. Our only issue was with the WiFi and breakfast - the Wifi... More

A quiet, peaceful, relaxing place with a beautiful garden and very special Bungalows. The best and friendliest staff we met on our 3 week trip through Yucatan! Every morning we were waked up by the beautiful Sound of the singing birds as they created a real Oase for birds and guests! Also enjoyed the Little breakfast and free coffee the... More

Wonderful accommodation offered by Secret Garden. We stayed in a 2 bed bungalow. The decoration and ambience of the hotel is great. The central courtyard has seats and lots of plants and makes it feel like your in the jungle, rather than Central Tulum. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and happy to help with any recommendations. What's more,... More

I chose this Hotel on a trip to the Airport in Cancun since it had really reasonable Rates and a great overall feedback , And was not disappointed . Located 2 blocks behind the ADO Terminal this seems to be the only spot that reserved a couple big shade trees in the center of Tulum. Beautiful rooms , loved the... More

My boyfriend and I visited Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, Tulum, Merida and Campeche. Tulum was our favorite spot and the Secret Garden was our favorite accommodation. The staff is friendly and helpful and the bed and breakfast is a cute clean relaxing place. We rented bikes and rode to cenotes, ruins and the beach. I loved how helpful the staff... More

Secret Garden is a small place set around a central court yard full of trees and plants making you feel you are in the depth of the mexican jungle rather than under 5 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Tulum. The staff are fantastic and the most welcoming of anywhere we stayed in Central America - helping us settle... More

Secret garden made our trip - it was exactly what we were looking for. It is a bit off the beach, which means it less touristy, but it is quick 20 min bike ride to the beach (and is right around the corner from an affordable bike shop). The rooms are clean & spacious, the outdoor seating area is a... More

Such a wonderful experience! The owner was very accommodating and sweet. Upon arrival, she gave us a map and explained/circled all the best beaches, restaurants, transportation amenities, etc. Air conditioning, wifi (weak at times), and clean facilities. White was a poor color choice for towels.. but they're clean so just suck it up and ignore the few stains. Put the... More
