I’m so torn. This is SUCH a fun place. Gorgeous beach- shallow. You can stay all day and hang. Literally shallow forever and super clear. I did get stung by a jelly fish - but it is the season for these little suckers and they really are not that painful. It felt like I walked into a thorny bush. The only thing that was super disgusting - SEA ROACHES!!!! I was like “wtf?” We just came in December and had zero issues. Today, we come with our teens and I felt something on my leg at Blue Bayou. Went to swat it off thinking it was a leaf and it was a big of some sort. Ok. No biggie. Join family for lunch and feel a mosquito like bite on my breast. Go to swat it and it’s STUCK on it! I had to pinch it off like a tick. And it drew blood!!! More than a mosquito. Asked the waiter and he said “those are sea roaches (!!!!). They live in the wood.” Ok. So we move away. LIES! All of a sudden all of the kids come to me with these things on them. We close out. My daughter and I decide to swim to Secret Beach Water Park as guys close out. Half way in, I start feeling bites. I think I’m paranoid scratching old bug bites. Reach down to my tummy and grab a FREAKING roach off of it! It crawls all over my hand and I freak. We run out of the water and now I am done! So sad. It’s such a gorgeous beach and the water has NO sargassum. The water - Almost Tahiti like…. Almost. I’m sorry. I just can’t come back.

We had an amazing time. It’s definitely pricey if you want drinks and food. Everything was tasty and the service was outstanding. Tony and James were just fantastic. James made the drinks tasty and strong.

I was glad that my family experienced the beach, but the countless sea roaches allowed us to only be in the water briefly. The water side meal was nice (excellent plantains) and sun kept us happy.

We were just in San Pedr o for several days and the seaweed was so bad we couldn't hang out at the beach. Fortunately, we discovered Secret Beach and it is worth the drive!! We went two days for a great relaxing time on the beach where we could hang out in the beautiful with waiters bringing us drinks and food to our palapa water! It is a little bit of a trek but has several free beach clubs with wait staff that is so accomodating!

The 'sea roaches' killed it for me. Beautiful crystal clear water that I couldn't swim in. I could deal with the overpriced food and drinks if I could do something more than just sit and roast in the sun. Staff said that they weren't bad if you didn't go past the dock, not true.

Competing music from each of the beach bars sounds like a continuous trainwreck.
The staff are pushy, asking you to order drinks over and over again. We tried two different places and they were both overbearing.

I'm a nature person but would've preferred my hotel's pool to this mess. Oh, and tons of loud drunk customers yelling. Hard pass.

Some of the worlds most beautiful water to swim & float in. Get there early to secure your perfect spot! We were able to see some beautiful fish from the dock as well. Excellent service at all of the beach bars and restaurants; we happened to be at Pirates and very much enjoyed our day!

Water was very nice!! Except the leaches😬
A lot of overpriced bars and restaurants, with mediocre food!!!! Worth checking out for a day , but definitely get food before you go and bring your own drinks!!!
