My husband and I came here to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary. We were welcomed by Damien who is the care taker. We rented the penthouse which I recommend. Upon climbing the steps we entered this fabulous home with 360 degree view of the very turquoise Caribbean. The sound of the ocean immediately washed away any stress that you could possibly have. Damien showed us around and told us to ask for him if we needed anything. The penthouse has 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. Under the penthouse our 2 apartments. My husband and I had the entire place to ourselves for the entire week we were there. We just loved
We rented a car at the airport so we could get around on our own. Grocery shopping was very simple. Went to Playa Del Carmen. I believe the name of the store was The Cherdraui. They sell everything like a super Walmart including alcohol. We did all our own cooking. The house had everything you needed to do this. There is no oven but, there is a toaster oven and a charcoal grill on the property. We were very content to stay in the home with the beautiful view and eat our meals out on the balcony. You cannot ask for a better view.
I enjoyed reading out by the pool and taking dips in the pool or ocean. Finished 3 books. My husband used the kayak with his new GoPro and also snorkeled. The beach was nice with fair amount of people walking.
There is a washing machine so, don't bring a lot of clothing. There is a stand to hang your wash on. No dryer. Clothes dried overnight due to the nice breeze blowing.
Damien would ask you if you wanted him to clean or not. He also took the trash. He changed our bedding 3 times. Didn't expect that. The place was very clean. We kept the doors closed due to mosquitoes. Really did not need the air conditioning with the windows open so we could enjoy the Caribbean air. Best to keep the windows closed though if you have the lights on because the little mosquitoes seemed to like the lights. Can't be helped, this is life in the tropics.
All the pictures you see on the website are very accurate. Including the 2 apartments which I also got to see.
Thank you Christina for having such a beautiful home in a beautiful spot. We went back to Cancun for our last night before traveling home and I soooo wanted to be back at Playa Del Secreto. If you want to get away and be away from crazy nightclubs, bars and people selling you things, stay here!!
