Very nice hotel. Pool was stunning to look at against the backdrop of the beach. Great location. A few points for improvement. Check in.was awkward. No one greeted us when we arrived and there were 3 or 4 staff present and we could not quite work who was to check us in. We were not orientated to the hotel ie.... More

Behind a secret door the hotel lives up to its name ... The photos on the web look very swish and it is lovely but a tiny bit shabbier around the edges it felt like it needed just a little more love ! It has amazing potential but is somewhat lacking in atmosphere ... We couldn't quite put our fingers... More

My husband and I spent a week at this great hotel. We had a room on the 4th floor and the view was awesome! The room was very pretty, bathroom was huge and the bed was cozy. The best part of the room was the huge balcony. The bed on the balcony was a nice spot to lay and stare... More

Finest hotel on Isla Mujeres. The service is WITHOUT EQUAL. We arrived in a downpour and were greeted by Williams with a smile, fluffy white towels and a glass of prosecco. Service is on par with any 5 star hotel but very personalized at this small boutique gem. Each and every gentleman that works at the hotel is kind and... More

Hotel Secreto is a very tiny boutique hotel on the beautiful Isla Mujeres. It is very well located near Playa Norte, and there are plenty of restaurants around. We received champagne on arrival which increased our expectations. However, our expectations were met in every possible way. The service was fantastic, the breakfast delivered to the room was nice, and the... More

If you want a secluded place, with the best bed we had in Mexico, a stylish pool area and breakfast on your balcony, while laying on an outside bed, this is your place! There are however a few downsides. The interior is just not 100% the design-chic it pretends to be, and the place does also feel a little bit... More

Hotel Secreto is tucked into the northeast corner of Isla Mujeres. It is close to the market street where many good restaurants are located. It is a small property with good security: one must use a key or ring the bell to gain entrance and there are multiple security cameras being monitored 24-7. Since my daughter and I were traveling...
