AMAZING 5 STAR VILLAS, MOST PERFECT BEACH!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second year staying @ Hacienda del Secreto and we hope to return every year!! The owner 1st class & is very responsive, she knows how to take care of her customers!! She will make your vacation a perfect one from start to finish!!
Hacienda del Secreto is such an AMAZING place, a hidden jewel... the beach is so wonderful, soft white sand, warm crystal clear water & very few people!!
***VERY IMPORTANT- THESE VILLAS ARE FULLY AIR CONDITIONED, EVEN THE COMMON AREAS. THIS IS NOT SOMETHING YOU USUALLY FIND IN VILLAS OF THIS SIZE***
This year we rented 2 villas for a wedding group of 20 people ( family, friends). The children had a blast swimming in the pool, the ocean, snorkeling, fishing, boogie boarding...the adults did too! The villas are 5 star ++ and every room is uniquely decorated. High ceilings, beautiful art work, hand painted murals, just so well done!!
We had a wedding celebration of seven days in this wonderful place! The ceremony took place on the beach and the dinner party at the Palapa Jack restauraunt! The food was OUTSTANDING!! Many of our friends said this was their best vacation ever and one of the most beautiful weddings they attended.
For us the wedding and vacation was more than we ever expected, a dream come true!!
Hacienda del Secreto is located in a VERY SAFE & secure area. It's an easy 25 minute drive from the Cancun airport to the front gate which has a 24 hour security guard. There is a staff of 15 that maintain the property, they cook, clean and take care of your every need. If you want to go sea kayaking, boogie boarding or snorkeling just ask & the equipment will be delivered @ no charge!! Want to grill fish for dinner, just call them & they will even light the grill for you!! THE STAFF IS AMAZING!!!
This stretch of beach is also a nesting ground for sea turtles & if you take a midnight walk along the beach you will most likely see one!! If you are really lucky you will see the baby turtles that just hatched!! What an incredible experience!!
Look no further, Hacienda del Secreto is the perfect place for your vacation & wedding!!

  • 5 of 5
Doy, Gonzalo and all the staff at Casa del Secreto/Hacienda del Secreto, I would like to thank you for an excellent job at helping us put our vacation together and making sure everything was perfect while there !
This was our second year staying at Villa Canteena and WILL not be our last !
From the moment we arrived til the sad moment we left, the staff catered to our every desire.
Gonzalo booked golf and all our excursions, making sure everything went without a problem. One excursion wasn't on their list, don't be afraid to ask for anything, he will make it happen !
I highly recommend their chef services. 5 star dining at 3 star prices, phenomenal !!!
Safety is not an issue here with 24 hour security, my family felt completely at home !
I could go on and on. Anyone looking for an unbelievable vacation, please contact guest services. They will help put together a vacation of a lifetime !!!
Thanks again Doy and to all your staff for again, an other great family vacation !!
See you soon !!

  • 5 of 5
Everything was wonderful. The property, the house, the food, the service, all of the staff and the pampering were top-notch. It was the most relaxing vacation I have ever been on. We didn't even leave the property for the first 5 days. It was so nice there , we didn't really care about getting out. Can't wait to go back.

Great Beach! Awesome staff and owner!

  • 4 of 5
We did a week in the Casa Del Secreto house. It truly is beachfront, and the beach is incredible. Perfect waves for boogyboarding, great sand, and warm water. We rented the whole house (its really 2 separate units). The playstructure was a huge hit, and the hot tub is beautiful. I think the house layout is not ideal for a single large group, and some of Doy's other houses probably have better layouts for a single large group. If its a smaller group or group with two factions that want their own kitchens/eating areas, this one would be great. The amenities were ok, but not four seasons like we have seen in some other rental properties. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We did higher level meal plan, and the food is quite good. I did wish there was a family style meal plan, its more restaurant like and all the food is prepared off-site in the main palapa. Our food bill for the week was $4000 which was almost 2x what we paid for a similar rental in punta mita last year, and this only included limited alcohol (1 drink at happy hour each day per adult). We could have ordered steak and lobster every night on our meal plan (which was awesome the night we did), but given we were in Mexico we wanted fajitas and other local dishes. We had a mix of kids and adults and didn't want to do the separate kids plan (chicken nuggets and corn dogs). You are also incented to provide your own alcohol, soft drinks etc which resulted in a suboptimal trip to Wal-mart.

Anyway, that was my one hangup. Doy is awesome and very hands-on. Mauricio is a saint, and we loved the rest of the staff (our 2 year was following Christopher around all day). The places aren't new, but are well maintained, and did I mention the beach? maybe the best I have seen anywhere in the world.

Wonderful Location, Relaxing Vacation, Great Staff

  • 5 of 5
We have rented many houses in many different places around the world but this has to be at the top of the list. The location is beautiful!! You could just relax and enjoy the beach, pool and house or if you wanted to do a little more there is plenty to keep you busy all along the Mayan Riviera. We chose a couple of day trips but mostly spent our time at the house and enjoyed every minute. What made this house exceptional was the Staff. They were helpful, friendly, and always attentive to your needs. Their English was great but it also allowed a chance for the kids to practice their Spanish. We chose the meal plan and that just added to the ease of the vacation. We focused on time as a family and enjoying everything this great spot has to offer. There was more to do then we could fit in in 9 days, so that just means we have to come back to continue to explore this beautiful corner of the world. Thanks to Doy and Cher for your help and to the whole family for having the vision to create this paradise. Please thank the staff again for all they do behind the scenes to make everything perfect. I know our son Spencer looks forward to another chess match under the palapa by the beach.
