Our Opinion

Much like its sister resorts, Secrets Capri and Secrets Maroma, the Secrets Silversands is luxury all inclusive at its finest. Top notch service and excellent rooms and facilities. The beach is nicer at the Secrets Capri, but all in all this is still an excellent resort. Like all Secrets, this resort is adults only, so families might want to look at the Dreams Resorts which are also related to the Secrets properties.


Overview
This Secrets resort is a contemporary and sophisticated adults-only getaway. Secrets Silversands presents Unlimited-Luxury in an innovative way featuring suspended beds, chic modern fabrics, alluring decor and captivating lighting. Fill your days with endless activities from snorkeling and sailing to kayaking and scuba diving and in the evening experience delectable cuisine from seven gourmet restaurants.

Location: Beachfront, 20 minutes from the airport & 35 minutes from downtown Cancun.

Highlights
  • Adults only
  • Eight swimming pools
  • Awarded with the "AAA Four Diamond Award"
  • Rainforest Alliance Certified
  • Free wifi throughout hotel
  • "Secrets Spa"

Happy Anniversary to Us

We celebrated our 5th year wedding anniversary at the Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun. The hotel was beautiful, the service was amazing and the spa..oh the spa! Our travel was orchestrated and executed to perfection by Briana Quintin, Executive Services from Globalbureau. Because we were traveling during Hurricane Irma the transfers, changes, delays, layovers,etc were expected but of course frustrating. I was able to email Briana and keep her informed as to the changes in real time. She communicated with me immediately assuring me that she was handling everything. And she did!! Our times changed at least 3 time but she made sure our hotel transport was there. When we arrived at our room there was a beautiful anniversary celebration package awaiting us and the staff greeted us by name and "Happy Anniversary"! Again, wonderful trip, wonderful team.Now for the down side - If you want to party hard with a younger crowd and enjoy real late night entertainment - this is NOT...and I repeat NOT the hotel for you. Although we were celebrating a milestone we still like to hang out and party with a younger, modern crown. We were stuck with a majority group of retirees, boring wedding parties, boring singles and timeshare seniors who live to leave their homes of doing nothing to sit on the beach... to do nothing. Not our type of party.This hotel is perfect if you're very conservative, boring or choose a more reserved vacation where you do absolutely nothing fun and don't enjoy a true nightlife.

Awesome vacation!

Secrets SilverSands is a definite 5-star resort both in facilities and service! Rooms were exceptionally clean and well maintained. Property was beautiful! Restaurants were excellent!Best Food ever at Bordeaux and service is impeccable! Our least favorite was the Mexican restaurant -- food below average and service was poor (this was our only below average experience during our week stay). Be sure to attend the wine tasting at Bordeaux (Eduardo and Emmanuel do a fantastic job)! Stephany is the most pleasant and customer service friendly employee I've encountered at any hotel ever! See is a great ambassador for this hotel! Ken was a fantastic pool bar server! Abby did a great job explaining hotel amenities, etc during our registration. Trust me you won't be disappointed in this resort and its staff! We can't wait to return!!

Secrets Trip and Wedding! 8/21/17-9/1/17

Okay, prepare for a lengthy review of my overall trip and destination wedding at SSS. First of all, I love this place. This was my 4th trip here. It certainly is beginning to feel like home. I'll start with the wedding process. I worked directly with Marine to plan the entirety of our wedding. We had a wedding on the gazebo, with the cocktail hour at the Veranda Lounge, and the reception (supposed to) follow at the Barracuda Bar, more on that later. As soon as I contact Marine, she had me fill out a preliminary form and get things started. Then the fun part came. She sent me the entire wedding planning packet. Talk about easy wedding planning. You simply check off exactly what you want, and any questions you have, you email Marine. Let me tell you I had a TON of questions! And Marine always answered very promptly and had all of the information I needed. Destination weddings compared to US weddings are immensely cheaper, and easier to plan. There's no contacting a hundred different vendors, everything is done for you. Marine was extremely accommodating with certain things, such as making trades for things we didn't need (we are two grooms, so we didn't need a bridal bouquet, so we got upgrades for centerpieces instead.) I am a very type A controlling neurotic type of person so planning a wedding via email was nerve wracking, but Marine really put me at ease throughout the whole thing. When we arrived at the hotel, we were not only greeted by every employee in the area, but Marine made sure to immediately greet us from the get go. After checking in, she took us around to all of our locations and explained how everything would be set up. We even changed one of our locations that day and she was very easy about it! Then she made sure to get us settled in our room, and made plans to meet with us to collect any decorations, and music for our cocktail party the night before. The day of our meet-and-greet cocktail, she checked in with us in the morning and made sure everything was set. She took our playlist about an hour before it was set to start, and then came back to walk us down. She stayed in the vicinity the entire time to make sure everything was going smoothly. She even went above and beyond to help us with random requests, such as making sure 3 of our friends had arrived at the hotel that day, and would be escorted to the event. The day of the wedding, Marine checked in with us first thing in the morning and made sure we were ready to go! We made a request that we could do our picture before the ceremony, since we wanted to enjoy our cocktail hour. Atoro (our photographer) was INCREDIBLE. More on him later. We were taking our pictures and it was about a half an hour before the wedding when we saw the storm cloud in the background. Marine suggested we start a few minutes earlier, a great call. We made it into the gazebo before the rain started. The gazebo was set so incredibly. It was beyond perfect. It did wind up down pouring during the ceremony but stopped as it ended. After the ceremony, we walked back up to the Barracuda Bar when Marine congratulated us, and then had to bare the bad news. Because of the prior rain, and the pending rain, everything would have to be moved to the Veranda Loungel. So the cocktail and reception would be there. She needed about 15 minutes to reset all of the tables and let me tell you they moved so fast and with such intensity it was incredible. She was so apologetic and we knew she had no control over the rain. They made the entire thing absolutely perfect. The food was astonishing, the service was beyond anything, it was just overall perfection. I cannot talk enough about how amazing Marine and her staff is. If you want a beautiful, picture perfect wedding that is beyond easy to plan, Marine is the person you need. The photography company is technically an outside company that comes in but they were exceptional. They took all of the things that we definitely wanted and made sure they happened. They were beyond great with us and our families. Atoro (sorry if I keep spelling your name wrong!) was so awesome and I can't WAIT to see his photos. Everyone at the wedding talked about how involved he was and how creative he was getting taking photos. They were just spectacular.Secrets is the most incredible hotel that I have stayed at. You're treated like royalty. Every single employee is top notch and go out of their way to make you happy. They will literally drop whatever they are doing if you need help. Everyone does their best to remember your name and make sure to use it every time they see you! The hotel is superbly clean, the rooms are gorgeous, the drink are delicious, and the games and shows that are scheduled throughout the day are so much fun! There are some shows then are better others, but that is to be expected. The entertainment staff is absolutely incredible. They really make your stay special. They make sure to include absolutely everyone they can, remember who you are, where you're from, what you like to do, etc. Every single day they would check on us and see how we were. The games and classes were so much fun. Everything about this place is practically perfection. Everyone seriously needs to visit this place. I can't thank Marine and all of the other staff for making our wedding, our vacation, and our friends and families vacation so incredible!Here are some of the people that made this trip extra special:Jerica- She was the happiest, sweetest person! She checked us in and made the experience so special. Thank you Jerica!Jesus- Our bellhop was so fun and kind. He went above and beyond to take care of us.Edgar- He was one of our servers at the seafood restaurant and was so funny and entertaining and just awesome!Anna- I can't say enough about this girl. She is sweet, fun, funny, awesome, cool, entertaining, and just overall amazing. She made every day so special.Dylan- this guy is absolutely amazing, hysterical, fun, funny, endearing, entertaining, and ALWAYS made sure to include us in everything.Estefani- This girl is so amazing! She worked so hard each and every day to be so full of energy and life and always made me smile!Thank you to everyone at Secrets for making everything so perfect!

Perfect Girls' Trip!!

Went with 4 friends to celebrate a 40th bday and had the best trip! We stayed at the resort the entire time and never got bored. we stayed 4 nights, 5 days. Our rooms were oceanview on the second and third floors of building #2. Perfection. Great service, clean, prompt response when we made calls for any reason. For 5 fun girls, the highlights of our trip revolved around the entertainment staff and i went happily from activity to activity from 9 am until the final dance on the dance floor (some of my friends chose to relax by the beach more than i, but each of us had the time of our lives!!) Dylan was attentive, funny, and great at his job. Hard to believe he is so young and already can take charge of any activity! Carlos ("Charlie") took us under wing and made sure we always knew what was going on and was a great dance instructor! We met Gebran on his first day and he was delightful and seemed as though he has had this job for years! Emmanuel always had time to answer questions even when his day was over! I cannot say enough about these 4 entertainment staff and how they made our trip so special. Francesco served us drinks pool and beachside every day, with a constant smile. This entire staff is hardworking and always ready to smile and serve a guest. At night, the entertainment level was just right, quieting down in time for guests to relax and sleep, rather than partying all night like some of the nearby resorts. We felt safe at all times with security on hand (even with flashlights to help me release a crab who had gotten lost) Thank you Secret Silver Sands! From one of your Idol contestants, Mercedes

The four of us had a great time ,the food was excellent the staff was even better Anna, Emanuel, Dyan , and the whole entertainment crew go above and beyond making sure you are having the best time you can. AT the swimup bar Mario and Francisco are the best , in the Buffett for breakfast Stephanie and Daniel were the best everyone was friendly and helpful . We would most definitely return. I went on the bike tour to puerto moreles with Emanuel leading us it was great I felt safe even going shopping on my own in puerto moreles . Despite the US State dept. Warning not to go to Mexico .
