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.

Amazing getaway!!!

I have been to a lot of all inclusive resorts but nothing compares to how amazing this resort is. The food is delicious. Better than most restaurants you will find back home. The staff makes you feel so welcome and the grounds are gorgeous.

It rained and rained...

The staff was stretching their imagination when the rain began to pour on the second day of my 7 day stay. They were so creative in providing diversions from the rain that it was impossible to be depressed....

Great vacation place

Overall, it is an excellent place, so I will only concentrate on a few annoyances. 1. The beach was overcrowded, not enough palapas, beach chairs are old and uncomfortable; 2. You can only get waist deep into the sea, then very shallow area with sharp bottom starts. Cannot swim in the sea at all; 3. Japanese restaurant is outrageously bad. Nothing tasted authentic at all. Again, I had great time there. Hotel staff was always extremely courteous, helpful and accommodating. All other restaurants were VERY good, and World Cafe had great variety of food. Internet throughout the hotel was fast enough for me to connect to the office when needed and make a few calls. Bars served top shelf liquor, and best tequila you can find. And the price was right, too.

Perfect Couple's Trip

My husband and I stayed for a week here. We had a great time. The food, drinks, room, staff - everything was absolutely fantastic! I would highly recommend this resort to anyone. No children at this resort was really nice - the last thing I want on vacation is sand being sprayed into my cocktail by some small kid running by. It was quiet, relaxing. Weather could not have been more perfect - sunny and 85+ almost every day. Food was great, drinks were awesome. Lots of top shelf options included. I had zero complaints about this resort!

Great Couples Retreat

We had a wonderful time at Silversands. Staff was super friendly and accommodating. Food was delicious. Wine was far superior to what we had at another resort. Grounds were lovely! I will be back to this place.

Wonderful romantic vacation!!

We had a fantastic vacation at Secrets Silversands, returning to the States after 7 nights, 7.5 days. The staff were all wonderful, and the upgrade was certainly worth it to preferred. The food was delicious, especially El Patio. And the Mexican coffee each night in the lobby was a highlight.

A true 5 star all-inclusive!

Overall this is the best all inclusive I've stayed considering the moderate amount I paid for this 5 day trip (including non stop flight). 5 star room, service, decor, food, drinks, entertainment. 1. partial ocean view room (junior) which is one of the cheaper options is more than we needed. It includes balcony with a bed, huge room with king sized bed, open concept bathroom with 2 sinks, a jacuzzi tub, and a large rainshower. 110 volt plugs at the bedside. very clean and looks newly renovated 2. 5 a la carte restaurants for dinner, all fantastic. they're open until 11pm, you never have to make a reservation except for the japanese hibachi grill. Buffet and outdoor seafood restaurants available for lunch, also fantastic. a Cafe for capuccinos and small sandwiches, deserts. 24 hour room service included. Food brought to poolside. Top shelf alcohol all the time. 3. Entertainment was plenty. Evening shows in the auditorium including dancing, rock shows, etc were ok. A fun casino night. The live music was my favourite, in the lounge or outside by the bar, or by the pool. A mariachi band one day, a jazz singer another, lots of classic songs you find yourself singing out loud to. There are plenty of comfortable chaises/daybeds to lay around and enjoy the scene. The decor is really beautiful, the light fixtures, the design of the outdoor bar, the lobby. And additional personal touches like the bakery chef comes out in the evenings and you can sample some little pieces of chocolate. A barista will light your liqueur coffee on fire. 4. The welcome check-in was very quick at first but then you need to listen to all the promotions. We never used our $400 in coupons because they are split up in such small amounts. We went to maroma to get a $200 spa credit but it took 4 hours including travel time instead of the 2 hours that was advertised. The concierge desk is very helpful. If you want to book scuba, there is a wreck and reef 2 dive morning you can book that is very close by but it fills up very quickly. 5. The beach sand was light and soft. Unfortunately a lot of rocks in the sand in the water but you can step around them. Lots of chairs, they could use more day beds. The servers work really hard to bring you your drinks. 6. The outdoor jacuzzi is lovely at night. It could be a lot warmer though. 7. The pool was very nice. Lots of chairs. Could use more music. The swim up bar is fun. 8. The spa massages were great. There is a hydrotherapy steam, sauna, hot and cold pool which is amazing. 9. The weather was perfect 28 degrees during the day. At night it can get cold from the wind. 10. If you are single and looking for a party scene, this is not it. The discotheque is small and empty every night and the DJ stops at 1am even on saturday. It's adults only and very couple-y with young and older couples alike. 11. taxis to and from cancun or the airport are $45 each way. Try to pre-book through the hotel because if you book one at the airport, it's $60 one way. It's $17 each way locally so if you want to use the golf course or check out the puerto morelos town, you need to factor this in. 12. The tennis court is on site but not open at night. 13. I like that the resort is only 20 minutes from the airport but when you arrive, you notice the beautiful greenery and lush surroundings. It is very different from staying in cancun. I'm very happy with my choice!
