Modern interiors, alfresco lounges, infinity pools and slick restaurants bring some serious style to the all-inclusive concept of this private beachside resort. Each of the 433 suites features white-on-white decor offset by dark rattan and boxy wood furnishings, with marble Jacuzzi tubs for two and furnished balconies and terraces overlooking the Caribbean. Golfers of all levels can enjoy the free greens fees at the nearby Grand Coral Golf Course, while sun worshipers can lounge by the pristine beach, wade in more than 43,000 square feet of interconnected swimming pools and rejuvenate with hydrotherapy and treatments like a warm seaweed wrap at the 12,000-square-foot spa. With eight restaurants on-site, there’s little need to voyage far for a variety of tastes. Nosh on fine Mexican cuisine at El Patio, try the inventive French fare amid the whimsical décor at Bordeaux and nosh on fresh seafood at the al fresco Oceana.
In the Area
Cancun gets a bad reputation for body shots and foam parties, but there’s another side to this Caribbean party spot. Trek downtown to the Mercado 28, home to the city’s reviving art scene with boutiques, galleries and Mexican handicrafts. Choose the up-scale Yucatan cuisine at Labná (Margaritas 29), or tapas accompanied by live Mexican guitar at El Rincón wine bar (Calle Alcatraces 29). Make Isla Mujeres, a short boat ride away, your launch pad for a survey of the world’s second largest barrier reef. Here, beach dwellers roam barefoot on pristine white sand and swim up close to 20 impressive acres of base coral. Have the resort concierge arrange a direct transfer to the island, or board the Punta Sam ferry for just $3 (35 pesos), each way. The reef looks best on the island’s west coast, at Punta Nizuc National Park, where the coral is 125,000 years old. Of course, a trip to the Riviera Maya is not complete without seeing the ancient Mayan Ruins of Chichén Itza, the seaside structures of Tulum and the jungle-fringed peaks of Coba.
How to Get There
Great food, nice hotel, giant rooms with big whirlpool tub. Drinks at dinner were watered down. Some wear and tear visible. Nice warm main pool. Clean beach. Could use new lobby furniture. All the staff were very nice and pleasant. Nice golf courses. Showers could use grab bars as the floor was slippery when wet. Bathroom floors were slippery when wet also. Main pool was heated and clean. Easy to get around without needing a golf cart. Some bathrooms lacked paper towels.
This was our second time at Secrets Silversands. The service is top notch! You will not be disappointed. We LOVED the food. Juan was on top of our drinks at the pool. Meet several couples who have returned to this resort many times. If you bring an insulated cup for drinks, remember to pack reusable straw for drinks. Resort is helping to reduce trash that effects marine life 🐢🐠🐬
Secrets is a magical resort. This was my second trip here this year, and like the previous trip, the food and service was excellent. The wait staff are polite, courteous, and bust their butts to make you feel like royalty. But what truly makes this resort special is the super fun entertainment staff, particularly Mariana & Charlie. Never without a smile, their personalities are infectious, as they engage with everyone young or old. They truly embody the term entertainer. Whether it’s a playing Texas hold em’, Charlie’s crazy game, volleyball, water aerobics, or wine tasting, these two make the resort more than fun.
Resort is clean and service was good.Music at pools was disappointing. Non stop Techno. When asked to change it was told they can't.Daily entertainment was sub-par. People running it said they have a lot of good/different ideas but management won't allow them to change things. Pretty boring.
This was our 4th trip to Silversands. We love it, it has it all. Beauty, party, seclusion. It's a beautiful property, if you want fun party atmosphere, enjoy the main pool with the swim up bar. If you want quiet, enjoy one of several secluded pools nestled throughout the resort. There are eight pools! Plenty of restaurants, good entertainment and great waiters. The only drawback may be the beach. The beach has some rocky areas and we have not seen the beautiful blue water there. But that doesn't bother us. Put me next to the ocean on a beautiful property where I can hear the water, I'm in heaven!
