What makes this villa unique

There is literally not one thing that we can think of that is not uniquely great about Hacienda del Secreto. To begin, we think the atomosphere we have created is both tranquil and exciting, from the beach to inside our villas. On Playa Secreto, our guests enjoy both relaxing days at the beach with pool side restaurant services, yet also have the opportunity to kayak, parasail, snokel, dive, deep sea fish and see some of Mexico's most famous attractions. Inside our villas, we have created a spectacular setting, with furnishings representative of both the Maya culture and the Caribbean Sea. Furthermore, we believe that our guest service is top notch. We have an amazing staff that is always keeping our grounds perfectly maintained, serving delicious cuisine and keeping the insides of our homes impecable. We have the pleasure of accomodating guest parties of all sizes, from couples to families to large scale weddings and retreats, so we are always prepared to serve your every need.

Incredible Place, Unbelievable Wedding!

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough amazing things about HDS. First of all, this wasn't just an ordinary vacation for us..we decided to select HDS for our wedding. Having a destination wedding can be hard, especially if you've never seen your venue. But based on all the rave reviews, we decided to book it! We were blown away. The property is even more beautiful in person. The staff ( shout out to Mauricio/Doy/Natalia/Juan) is unbelievably accommodating, flexible and top of the line when it comes to service. Our guests couldn't believe how gorgeous everything was! And the After it was all over, our guests were telling us that we need to renew our vows every year and they will all come back! We had 54 guests so booked the entire property, and I can not tell you how special it was to not have to fight resort crowds, stand in lines and fight for pool space. Many of our guests mentioned that because of the HDS experience compared to a typical resort, they were able to get to know so many more people! To everyone at HDS THANK YOU a millions times over. It was perfect. Can't wait to come back and visit again!

A great stay at Hacienda de Secreto

  • 5 of 5

We found out about Hacienda de Secreto on the web. After much research, which was all positive, we booked a family vacation for 10 (Multigenerational trip). To say we were not disappointed, is an understatement. This trip exceeded all of our expectations. The house was wonderful and beautifully clean, the food was delicious and the service and staff exceptional. We chose to have our meals delivered to the house and were pleasantly surprised to find out it is not just delivered, but served restaurant style. Pool and ocean literally outside our door. What more could you ask??

Lovely getaway

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous house with luxurious bedrooms, an attentive and pleasant staff who keep it spotless, a great manager, a perfect beach, a lovely little pool. The hot tub isn't quite hot enough--our only complaint. The nearest town, Porto Morelas, is a pleasant place to wander and eat.

Fantastic vacation rental and wedding location!

  • 5 of 5

I can not begin to praise Doy (the owner/manager) and her staff enough for a week in paradise that we will never forget! We decided to do our wedding here at the recommendation of family who had attended a previous wedding here. We were just overwhelmed by the property, the amenities, and the high level of service and attention we received. A group of us rented Casa Sarita for the week and we ended the week with a WONDERFUL wedding celebration with 30 guests. First off the house: It was just BEAUTIFUL, the pictures and 360 views on their website do NOT even remotely do the house justice. Every day I discovered some new wonderful detail that gave the house so much character and elegance. So much attention to detail, and the property is very well maintained. They clean the beach daily, the rooms are very clean and well kept, they come in and clean basically all day! (it felt like the second we got a dish dirty there was somebody in there helping clean up, and with a smile on their face). The staff is just wonderful, they were happy to help us with any request we had and were just wonderful people to be around, they made us feel at home in every possible way and I can not praise the staff enough. We are already hoping to plan a return trip next year with our friends!

The Wedding: was...perfect. Doy (who coordinated everything through her preferred vendors) did an amazing job of executing exactly what I wanted down to the last detail. She has clearly been doing this for a long time and knows exactly what to do and what to recommend. It was flawless, she not only executed every detail I requested but she added her own little details which only made our day that much more special. (Also the food was wonderful, our compliments to the chef) We can not thank her enough for helping us to create our dream friends and family have not been able to stop talking about what a magical day it was and it was an experience that none of us will soon forget.

Needless to say we were VERY happy with every aspect of our trip to Hacienda del Secreto and would highly recommend this location to anybody who is looking to have a special trip that is not like a typical resort experience. You get all of the intimacy of sharing a vacation rental with your family and friends but the luxury of ordering food and drinks and every need attended to as if in a hotel, and basically at the same cost if not less! You will not regret vacationing here :)

Umaki Ha a 'Must Visit!'

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 6 buddies rented the Umaki Ha villa at Hacienda Del Secreto for 5 days and had a fantastic experience. The property was exactly as advertised and pictured on the web. Actually the marketing of the property probably undersold the villas! Everything was nice, clean, and well maintained. The staff was tremendous, doing all sorts of little things to make our stay extra special. They helped with transportation to and from the airport, as well as rides into playa del carmen. We always felt completely comfortable and safe.

Every meal was delightful and we were all shocked at how flexible and accommodating the cooking was. One member of our party has severe food allergies and the staff took good care of him without compromising variety and quality for the rest of us. The icing on the cake for me was how helpful the manager was after I got home and realized I had left a few items. He went out of his way to help me find the best means of shipping back to the states, and processed everything for me with the same helpful and pleasing demeanor we experienced during the whole stay.

I would recommend Umaki Ha and the other villas at hacienda del Secreto without hesitation!
