Breathtaking scenic views of the Caribbean Sea, vibrant Mexican art, hand-painted murals, unique rock walls and a sense of tranquility await you inside.

Casa Del Secreto - High End Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We arrived every morning to our own private pool with freshly stocked towels and private bathroom, ocean view of coarse. Breakfast was served looking over the ocean from the upstairs patio. Oh and if you want to kayak in the crystal blue ocean all you need to do is pick up your radio and ask. They will bring them to the waters edge and you are off. Every room is like a hotel suite. Would go again in a second. This is a family operated vacation home and it shows with all the care and attention they and the staff provide

More than Five Stars; It is a Special Place

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Casa was so relaxing and pleasant and brought back so many great memories of our daughter's wedding at Playa Secreto 4 years ago.

Every person who came for the wedding still talks about how fabulous it was: the place, the staff, the arrangements, the entire experience.

I am so happy we got to stay at the Casa del Secreto last week. They have the best staff anywhere. Every single person on site was pleasant and accommodating. The design of the villas, the landscaping, the beach and the attention to detail were, as ever, outstanding, even though we were the only people staying at the Playa that week. Lucky us.

Also, we appreciated being able to rent the car on site and the airport pickup and drop off. Christopher and Jose were so gracious and sweet to sing the Spanish birthday song, Las Mañanitas, to my husband as they presented his birthday cake after dinner on Thursday night. He loved it. He also loved his towel and toilet paper "birthday cake" with flowers the maid left for him on our bed. I put that photo on my fb page and got a lot of comments. Of course, the Great Mauricio took good care of us at all times. He is a Gem. Everyone made us feel like family.

A Blizzard at home forced us to change our flights and unexpectedly stay an extra 2 days and Doy and her staff arranged for us to stay in place and took care of us. This is a special place.

40th anniversary family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We went to Casa del Secreto to celebrate my parents' 40th wedding anniversary. 5 couples and 7 children. The staff made everything possible to make us feel comfortable, we had some problems with the A/C and the fridge and they fixed it as soon as we told them. We had a great time and we hope to be back soon!

Our stay at the Villa was excellent We could not have asked for a better place to stay. The villa was clean, accommodated all our needs. We had six adults and no one felt crowded.The kitchen was fully furnished with all the necessities for our stay.The location was easy access to all the surrounding area.We even rented a vehicle and had no problems finding where we wanted to go.The description of the Villa was very accurate along with the amenities.The pool was clean and beautiful; the beach was gorgeous and well maintained.The Maid service kept the kitchen and the house in tip top shape They would come multiple times during the day to keep the kitchen clean.They had a chore as for we had 4 young men with us Beds bathroom living room were kept clean at all times. WE had the cook which I am sorry do not remember his name but he provided food for us one day it was excellent the margaritas were to die for.The gentlemen that served us during that day were very gracious and made us feel like we were Kings and queens.One day the ground people came and cut coconuts down for us and showed us how to get the milk out and to make drinks from them.The security Guards made us feel save and taken care of. Mauricio was the best he helped us set us several excursions, answered all our questions and treated us like we were the only people in the world.He gave us information for our tour guide to the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza,Francisco Francisco was an excellent tour guide. He made our tour that day the best he kept us on schedule he provided us with extras like taking us to some old cities and showing us around and we were able to see some old churches which we had desperately wanted to see. He took care of getting our tickets, food, everything. He took us to Cenote Sagrado Azul and that was exciting and beautiful. We ate at Hacienda Xaybeh Dcamara which was excellent. Mauricio also recommended several restaurants in Puerto MOrelos Pelican, El Merkadito, Habernarios, All of which were excellent places to eat. We at several time at El Merkadito and loved it.The village was beautiful and full of atmosphere.WE would definitely recommend the Villa, Mauricio, Doy and all the staff to all friends and family. We also went to Playa De Carmen and visited Fifth Avenue.The culture and atmosphere was great.The whole trip was perfect.Thank you very much. An added benefit or joy to us was the dogs. Contesia, Bella,Grandpa, and Nuva.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best, most restful vacation ever. I have traveled the world and had a good time doing it but I entirely enjoyed Playa del Secreto without a moments irritation. I felt perfectly safe and protected. The accommodations were above expectation and the property was very well kept and beautiful. The staff was friendly, skilled, and professional. Doy Cooper, the owner, is an awesome woman and I hope to see her often in the coming years. The food was excellent and delightfully served. Fairly centrally located, it seemed to me, I was in reach of many attractions such as Cozumel, Isla de Mujeres, Coba, Chichen Itza, Tulum, Playa del Carmen, and Puerto Morelos. I would highly recommend this place to friends and family, and in fact, already have. It is a great value and it will be my new (and less expensive) Hawaii.... that is to say, I plan on returning regularly.

A Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Playa del Secreto is synonymous with paradise! When looking for a beach front vacation destination, Playa del Secreto is a must-stay vacation spot! No one can compare to Doy and her staff in making your vacation a little piece of Heaven. The villa is beautifully decorated, the meals are scrumptious, the grounds are gorgeous, the hot tub evokes serenity. Once outside, the infinity pool overlooks the turquoise blue Caribbean and sandy beaches - it is a breath-taking view. Every attention is paid to detail; every wish is accommodated. Although there is no need to go anywhere, Doy is wonderful at making suggestions of places to go, things to do and see. I have vacationed here several times; every time I have to leave, I can't wait to go back. Re-entry into the real world is a harsh reality after staying being here!
