Exclusive El Secreto

We came for our honeymoon and knew it was off the beaten path and far north. But you really do feel stuck! The property is beautiful as long as you stay on the property. The villas are stunning and the staff is great.

Perfect paradise

I'm not sure there are enough words to describe how incredible El Secreto really is. It is truly a breathtaking experience. Just in awe at how perfect this place is. The location alone would make it, but then it is topped off with the most personal service from an AWESOME staff. We felt like we had personal service just for us the whole time. We felt like royalty every day. Meals were so delicious. Live entertainment made for perfect evenings. Our villa was beautiful and smelled incredible every day. After returning from breakfast, it was already clean, bed made, bathroom refreshed, and smelling of citrus. In the evening, turn down service, and a new replaxing spa insense burning. This was truly the most special place I have ever stayed. My eyes were truly filled with emotion on out day of departure. If I could return tomorrow, it would not be soon enough.

Beautiful Quiet Couples Getaway

We went to Il Secreto for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it! However, do research on the weather in Belize before you go - we knew it would be warm but early April (and I'm not sure how long it lasts - think some of March and through May) is their super windy season. Therefore, our excursion had to be moved (snorkeling) to when it was less windy and even then it was still a good strong swim in the water. The resort was gorgeous and the staff superb. However, if you want to go into town, it's a 30 min speed boat ride each time and only at set times (unless you pay a a decent amt of $). And there's a local water taxi co but they don't go up to the hotel and don't always pick up when they say they will or after you've called them. Only other thing under-par would be the food. Their menu isn't that large and most items were covered in heavy sauces and/ or w/lots of butter. The vegetables were great but heavily coated. The ingredients are very fresh, so hopefully they can adjust this. Oh and a seasonal menu would be good too since they had a few lobster dishes, but apparently April isn't lobster season so we couldn't get it. The rooms/ individual huts are gorgeous and we loved getting away from everything. Very peaceful and quiet.

Mango's - a restaurant on the beach in San Pedro (in town) was the best food around town/ on the island. Everything we ordered was superb.

Beautiful Hotel

an excellent option for a romantic getaway, combining some rustic features with modern stuff, beautiful areas located 20 minutes from town. The Staff is great, always there to assist for every need. Rooms are wonderful, the private jacuzzi is excellent, and all the amenities perfect. You can see the ocean and relax...
