Part of the AMResorts company, "unlimited luxury" is the aim at Secrets Silversands Hotel, an adults-only sanctuary lost in the jade and turquoise peace of the Rivera Maya. Lie back at the Secrets Spa and let the wall-length floral murals sweep you away to the jungle, or dine on/in the island pool at Oceana, while the lights of the swim-up courtyard suites twinkle on the water. Gourmet food is taken as seriously as the themed decor here, with Parisian style monochrome photos to accompany the fillet steak at Bordeaux restaurant, and the cherry-red decor complementing the Pan-Asian fare at Himitsu. Once you've recovered from all that food, there's plenty of tennis, golf and reef snorkeling action to be had, and you can finish the evening at the open-air theater with its program of local shows.

Neighborhood
Secrets Silversands is in a remote part of the Caribbean coast of Mexico, around 15 miles south of Cancun and just north of the distinctly sleepier resort of Puerto Morelos. White sand beaches are available as far as the eye can see, and the kaleidoscopic underwater reefs appeal to both beginner and veteran divers. If you seek out more civilization, Puerto Morelos is a six-minute drive away, and hosts a Mayan Handicraft Center, some great Mexican eateries and one peculiar, leaning lighthouse.
Hints and tips
Anyone who enjoys snorkeling should check out the beach in front of the kayaks - the water is clear ten feet down.
When booking a room, buildings five and six are the quietest.

great stay!

We had a great time at Secrets. It rained most of the time we were there, but we still had fun at the beach bar and in the hot tub. I loved that you could see the ocean from almost everywhere in the resort. Overall, the staff was very friendly. One thing I'd change is to put the lunch buffet at the outdoor restaurant and move the menu lunch inside. I liked how you could get food right out at the pool without having to get dressed to go to the nicer restaurant. The French restaurant was our favorite. We had a group of eight and they accommodated us at most places. Great stay!

vacation 5/24/14 - 5/31/14

Positive: Close to Cancun airport. Not too expensive. Very good staff at all levels. Negative: Food was not that great. Room temp was limited to 20 (68 usa), although this was not even close. I sleep at home @ 70 degrees and my first night back I was actually cold compared to 68, so their temps are way off. Why have a limit? If I want it on 60 degrees then I should be able to do so. If they had ceiling fan over bed instead of living area (makes no sense) it would have helped.

If you enjoy staying in one place this is for you.

Can not walk up and down the beach due to other hotels and water is real rocky. Must wear water shoes or your feet will get cut up. Room is big and the higher up the better for views. Food was great and the drinks just keep coming. Hobiecats are free and sea kayaks. Men don't need a tie, button down or polo is fine for every night with pants. Taxi is only $45 for a ride. Don't get suckered into the group shuttles. Private taxi costs the same and doesn't stop at every hotel on the way. Pool area starts to close early and evening entertainment is ok. Relaxing resort but can get crazy at times with drunk loud people. Grab a towel when you can because there is only so many and chairs.

Great resort!

This is our 2nd time staying in this area and we loved this resort. The staff was wonderful, the food was great, loved the layout of the hotel. It's large and you have plenty of room so your not crowded but not so big your completely secluded. The rooms were the best I've stayed in, the only thing missing was the four bottles of liquor complimentary in the room of our last resort. Nothing really negative, but if you read the reviews you will find that the ocean is not great for swimming. There is a very large area of coral about 20 feet in and you cannot walk on it with bare feet. The only other thing I noticed was some of the blended "Icy" cocktails seemed a little watered down, Possibly due to melting in the hot sun. But those are minor details compared everything else this resort has to offer. I would defiantly recommend.

Excellent service and beautiful hotel

This is such a beautiful hotel! Only the second Secrets hotel we have stayed at, but by far the best! We had a swim out junior suite. The room is awesome. The bathroom is so nice. Our room was just steps away from our very own pool and only about 500 feet from the main pool with the swim up bar, etc. The service was extra ordinary. Every where you went they were waiting on you with a smile. Pool servers were awesome. Waiters in the restaurants were wonderful. Even the coffee baristas were smilingbevery day!, The beach is the best one in the area. Puerto Moroles is very quiet and not a lot of shopping, but some good bars and smaller places to eat that ard very authentic Mexican! I would definitely come back to this resort!!

Group vacation

We went with a group of 11 and everyone had a blast! Food was delicious, staff was so nice and enthusiastic, games and entertainment were fun. I was concerned going with a big group, but we were always able to get a group of chairs poolside and tables at the restaurants. I have no complaints. Wonderful resort!

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Don't walk in the ocean at night!! Even in ankle-high water. My friend got stung by a sting ray and had to call the medic. It cost him a lot of pain and a pretty penny.

Would come back

Overall experience was great. The resort is kept extremely clean and the staff very friendly . The SPA is a nice retreat. If I had to point to one negative it would be the wine selections with dinner. Pretty limited and mark up was outrageous. Have said that, nothing to get too worked up about and certainly not enough to ruin a good time!

great escape from the Iowa winter

We had a great time at a great resort in a beautiful warm Riviera Mayan location. Food, drinks, rooms, scenery were fantastic. Beach was great but underwater near beach was a bit rocky and thwarted walks into the ocean.
