Gallery & Some Reviews


My husband and I came here to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary. We were welcomed by Damien who is the care taker. We rented the penthouse which I recommend. Upon climbing the steps we entered this fabulous home with 360 degree view of the very turquoise Caribbean. The sound of the ocean immediately washed away any stress that you could possibly have. Damien showed us around and told us to ask for him if we needed anything. The penthouse has 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. My husband and I had the entire place to ourselves for the entire week we were there. We just loved hat

We rented a car at the airport so we could get around on our own. Grocery shopping was very simple. Went to Playa Del Carmen. I believe the name of the store was The Cherdraui. They sell everything like a super Walmart including alcohol. We did all our own cooking. The house had everything you needed to do this. There is no oven but, there is a toaster oven and a charcoal grill on the property. We were very content to stay in the home with the beautiful view and eat our meals out on the balcony. You cannot ask for a better view. I enjoyed reading out by the pool and taking dips in the pool or ocean. Finished 3 books.
My husband used the kayak with his new GoPro and also snorkeled. The beach was nice with fair amount of people walking.
There is a washing machine so, don't bring a lot of clothing. There is a stand to hang your wash on. No dryer. Clothes dried overnight due to the nice breeze blowing.

Damien would ask you if you wanted him to clean or not. He also took the trash. He changed our bedding 3 times. Didn't expect that. The place was very clean. Really did not need the air conditioning with the windows open so we could enjoy the Caribbean air. Best to keep the windows closed though if you have the lights on because the little mosquitoes seemed to like the lights. Can't be helped, this is life in the tropics.

All the pictures you see on the website are very accurate. Including the 2 apartments which I also got to see.
Thank you Christina for having such a beautiful home in a beautiful spot. We went back to Cancun for our last night before traveling home and I soooo wanted to be back at Playa Del Secreto. If you want to get away and be away from crazy nightclubs, bars and people selling you things, stay here!!

We wanted a family holiday with our two sons, daughters-in-law and 3 granddaughters aged 3-8. We wanted a place away from the crowds but within easy reach by car of Riviera Maya attractions and towns - and a good supermarket. This house was heaven. Right on a lovely beach, very comfortable with 3 bedrooms so that each couple could have privacy when they wanted it. 3 complete bathrooms too. A large and well-equipped kitchen/dining area and a large living room - and a great terrace with cool breezes when we wanted to get out of the sun. The swimming pool was very safe for kids. The clear sea is not flat calm here, so young kids need supervision, but ours loved playing in the waves. Good weather most of the time. Cristina (by e.mail) and Alberto and Damian (at the site) were most attentive. One air conditioner broke down and Alberto had it replaced with a brand new one within hours. No trouble with mosquitos. Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen and Xcaret all within 30 minutes drive. NB Your own transport is more or less essential, but driving is very easy, simple and safe. Also you must expect to cook all breakfasts and some other meals in the property (and thus save a lot of money!). Someone left an AAA guidebook that we used to find public beaches for a couple of outings. A tip - Do not miss Playa Xcacel, a nature reserve and turtle nesting site in a beautiful calm bay 66.5 km south of the entrance to Playa del secreto. The entrance is only visible when going north, marked by a sign with a turtle on it. 20 Pesos entrance fee! Closes by 5.00pm. We stopped there on the way back from Tulum, and we were so glad we did so instead of using the (rough, seaweed covered) beaches at Tulum.
