We found the Secret Garden Hotel by luck and couldn't have been happier with this place. Our room was the orange bungalow and how cute ... everything you could ask for and quite bohemian in it's furnishings and decor. The setting is absolutely stunning, very tropical with the sounds of birds everywhere. At night the staff light up all the... More

Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful with suggesting activities and sight seeing trips. The location is perfect, right on the main strip of Tulum so close to all the restaurants, shopping and nightlife but not too loud. Great scenic little garden complete with candles, hammocks and tables and chairs make for an amazing atmosphere. Room was comfortable, clean and big.... More

We booked the hotel for 3 nights, but liked it so much we added another 3 nights. The staff were all super friendly & helpful! The best out of our travels. The room isn't fancy. It's rather simple but it's amazing because of the little details & thought they put into it. The place has a/c, fan, wifi & snacks.... More

It is a couple of blocks back from the main strip and the neighbourhood is not affluent but these are people's homes and how they live. We did not feel unsafe at any point when we were staying there and there was a gate to the hotel which was locked at night and there was a member of staff there... More

this hotel is absolutely hideous. the reason why we stayed here was because of all the good reviews. I have no idea why they have so many good reviews..... first of all if you can stay on the beach side. do it, NOT IN THE TOWN. When we were driving to the hotel, we drove through the town and it...

Located two blocks north of the main ADO bus station and two blocks back in from the main thoroughfare of Tulum is this wonderful hotel. Whilst walking down past a number of medical facilities and a few dilapidated residences your mind might be wondering have I made the right decision, but entering the large brown security gates you are greeted...

Requested the Orange Bungalow, but it was occupied when we got there, so we had the Brown Bungalow for the same price. It had an extra bed on top that we didn't need, but that was fine. It's cute, my husband and I like places with character. But while there was a breeze at the nice garden where we'd sit... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Secret Garden for one week - it was amazing. Everything from the friendly staff (thanks Alex, Maura & Josh!) to the peace and tranquility of the beautiful garden simply made our week. Location is perfect, close to ADO, markets and delicious restaurants. There is purified water available 24 hrs which is very convenient. Perfect... More

My friend and I spent two nights at Secret Garden in April 2014. The location was perfect… close to town --- two blocks from the main road, 3-4 blocks from the ADO bus station, a few blocks from delicious food - especially the seafood restaurant to the east. I liked the fact that it is in town and not on... More

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
