The Secret Garden is exactly that - a beautiful hidey hole in the middle of Tulum centre. The hosts are very welcoming, helpful and friendly. Everything was clean, and water and hot drinks were complimentary. The price was also very reasonable. There were 3 of us, and 2 beds, which was plenty of room. The beds are very comfortable. Staying... More

The Secret Garden is a reminder of the spirit of the Lonely Planet 25+ years ago. I spent two nights in a Bungalow. Everything about was just right. Plenty of filtered water. Coffee. Comfy bed. A third speed ceiling fan--no need for A/C. Very well-made palapa. Dark via window shutters for that deep sleep. Breakfast was a bit simple. No... More

The welcome was fantastic: we were shown around our room and the hotel and told about places to go in town. We stayed in the hotel's cheapest room, and it was small but... More

The staff is very polite and helpful and was able to answer all of our questions about sights, tours, etc. In the morning a good breakfast is provided. Our room was clean and also had a little kitchen area.... More

The address is difficult to find, specially if you're driving. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It's pleasant enough for a short stay. We only spent 1 night and it rained during the night. We left before sunrise and the entrance of the place was very muddy making it difficult to load our rental car. All in all, we... More

This was a perfect place to stay to spend a night on the town. It has easy access to the main road, and the hotel staff has a lot of knowledge about the city, so they were extremely helpful when we were deciding where to go. The cabanas were bigger than we had expected, and were very clean!
