Part of me wants to keep this place a secret but Joshua and Maura were so nice that I had to write something. They will make sure that you get what you want out of your stay and the rooms are beautiful. It's a little ways away from the beach but it's easy to get there by bike or by...

This was the MOST WONDERFUL place!!! We came to Tulum for a wedding but wanted to stay somewhere a bit more low-key than a resort. We found ourselves enjoying a calm, blissful 4 nights at Joshua & Maura's lovely little hidden gem, the Secret Garden Hotel. If we ever come back to Tulum, we will stay here! Not only were...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Secret Garden last month and was very impressed by how kind and welcoming, and peaceful, Joshua and Maura were. They were friendly and helpful and welcomed us as friends, offering help with laundry and suggestions for eating and beach-going. This more than made up for the few things that were not exceptional about...

The gardens have lounge sofas and a canopy of trees with the jungly sounds of birds, soft music, candles at night, just a peaceful place. My room was nicely decorated and had candles & incense. The gal from Italy who worked there was so helpful and provided good information. The coffee, fruit, granola bars & water was always available. Just...

We loved our stay at the Secret Garden Hotel in Tulum! We enjoyed it so much we even extended our stay. Joshua was very helpful and the town itself is great, much more peaceful than Playa del Carmen without losing any conveniences. The hotel is lovely, with a beautiful courtyard and charming rooms. There was always hot water with good...

As everyone has mentioned, Joshua is great. Very helpful and friendly, he's a great host. We stayed in the orange room which is quite nice. Comes with speakers to play your music, a little kitchen area etc. We stayed for 2 nights and had planned to stay longer but unfortunately the birds were just too loud. That sounds silly in...

The Secret Garden is one of those places that you don't want to tell everyone about, because it's that special... yet you can't stop talking about it... because it's that unforgettable. Between their gracious, lovely, young and refreshing hosts, Joshua and Maura, to their bungalow style huts with private baths and maid service daily, to their wonderfully relaxing lounge area...

Joshua was very welcoming and helpful as we shared our Yucatan trip itinerary with him and he gave us great suggestions. Service is incredibly important when you're traveling in an unfamiliar place, so we put a premium on that. We stayed in the Orange Room, but a room with an air conditioner would have been more comfortable. The air conditioner...

Maura and Joshua gave us a very friendly and informative welcome about the hotel and the surrounding area. Secret garden is just that in the middle of Town. We awoke to the sound of the dawn chorus. The accomodation was very comfortable and had an eco theme running throughout. It was a welcome cool, peaceful end to busy days exploring....

I overnighted here March 28th, 2012, on my way from Belize to catch a plane home to London from Cancun. I can't speak for those who wanted to be closer to the beach, archaeological sites, etc. It's in the middle of town, very close to the bus station, which was great for me. The hosts are utterly charming, and work...
