The cost of the excursions offered on our website are typically 10% cheaper than what's offered at the resort.
There is a calming pool and a hot therapy pool along with a cold therapy pool.. One day the special was 40% off any 55 minute deep tissue or swedish massage. Or they give you resort coupons for $40 off any spa service. The money benefits the Mayan women, and the prices were much more affordable.
This spa does have free amenities for all guests though. My therapist was a little to rough for my liking, but other than that it was nice. There are different specials each day in the spa (e.g., facials, massage, etc). I recommend going to the Jungle Spa in Puerto Morelos instead.
you must take a walk to the South for about 1/2 a mile past a dog that might bite your head off unless you are willing to sink you body into the disgusting water in front of the house that has this dog...avoid this resort.my review. The beach was actually the only common complaint I overheard.
I woudn't recommend do so at the resort we stayed at. We did visit resorts closer to Cancun where the beaches were beautiful and .cannot swim at this beach.
99% of guests were married couples, so not a great place for singles. Just so you aren't too overdressed like we were one night!! I would call to find out which restaurants are open when you go though.
(side note: the website said that some restaurants require "formal" attire, but none did while we were there..."casual elegance"!
That made the drinks like they should be to begin with. But, you can go out for a long way before you reach neck deep. But here at Secrets Siilversands, the swim out rooms are like this - room, patio, then a foot of lawn, then the edge of the pool. All first floor rooms have a patio that is in front of the pool.
You can definitely swim at the beach, you just need to go out beyond the first 15 feet, because there is some seaweed by the coast and some rocks. (I really didn't hear any other complaints)I have seen other resorts' swim outs to be the pool water coming up into your staircase out of the patio so you can simply step into the water from your patio.
All rooms above the ground floor have porches that are private.
