“El Secreto”
Reviewed January 6, 2015 for a stay in September 2014

people found this review helpful

My partner and I visited the cabana and loved it from the minute we arrived and did not want to leave! Carlos was fantastic and on call 24/7. Everything you needed for a beach holiday was pretty much on your doorstep and it was central to all parks and caves for crystal clear swimming. Car hire is a must for this holiday we got a good deal £230 for 12 days from a lovely Lady just by the airport. The cabanas has everything you need and the people are very friendly and helpfull learn some basic Spanish and you will be just fine. I have NOT got a bad word to say about this place it really is paradise! Hope this helps and enjoy, because we did! See you again soon Carlos.

“Outstanding Riviera Maya beach getaway.”

For someone who totally loves the beach without the crowds of Cancun or Playa del Carmen, El Secreto in Xpu Ha beach is the perfect getaway. Just steps away from the ocean, El Secreto is a small beach bungalow that has everything needed for a beach vacation. The home was clean and contained just about everything needed to be self sufficient. For more than a couple, it would probably be too small, but was perfect for my spouse and I. The patio is especially enjoyable with comfortable chairs and a perfect view of the beach. Even in August, the ocean breeze was enough to make it comfortable during the day and the AC was sufficient at night. As far as recreation, just about anything you want to do associated with the beach and ocean is available just steps away including scuba diving, snorkeling, paddle boarding, fishing, sailing, etc.
I have to emphasize that you have to be a total beach lover because your feet will be in the ocean or the sand about 90% of the time, but for those that find that appealing, El Secreto is a perfect location. My spouse and I are already planning a return.
