A fantastic venue to relax, enjoy stunning views, and delight in the scrumptious meals that were prepared! Doy & her staff were amazing! The ONE complaint that I have is that I can’t give them a 10 Star review! Can’t wait to return!

Playa del Secreto and specifically Casa Tortuga was a nice stay but…it is far away from a town so if you don’t have a car rental you are on your own to get groceries. At check out to pay the tip you must have cash and they give you a letter suggesting us$250/night. We had a very difficult time with this and find that we turista are the ones paying the bulk of wages to the staff. The staff was very nice and Oscar the main caretaker did a great job. I We spent about 20 minutes cleaning the beach area which had a lot of plastic debris and filled a large bag.

We adored HDS. The beachfront location was beyond phenomenal and the house amazingly quiet and beautiful. This is the place for relaxing away from the crowds! The staff was superb and so friendly--they treated us like family. Oscar was a great help, handled everything and totally professional. Cannot recommend more highly. Only nit--the gym equipment needs refreshing! But that was a tiny detail in an overall magnificent experience.

This is a very special place.... a gathering to commemorate( a yr late due to Covid !)our 50 th anniversary... our daughters and families ( 6 adults/6 children) immensely enjoyed HDS...The service was superb from start to finish, as overseen by Guest Svcs Mgr Oscar L....All staff were courteous, diligent and professional....We can’t say enough of how we’re were impressed...The location is fantastic, right on the water, with room views to match.... The kids had a blast utilizing all the outside amenities (incl outside pool, the hot tub-jacuzzi, swings, play huts etc). The food was diverse and excellent throughout our week there, and excellently served.... One suggestion is to have on-site washer/dryer in the structure for random/regular use..... To sum up, we Highly recommend Hacienda del Secreto !!

We rented multiple villas and had a large group staying for a week. It was close to perfect: the location, accommodation, catering, and hospitality. The staff looked after all of our needs and were very helpful. Highly recommended!
