We stayed in Secret Garden Hotel in Tulum for two nights and we wish we could have stayed longer. Joshua could not be more helpful. He even paid our taxi fare one evening as the driver did not have the correct change for us! The hotel is really clean and very comfortable. Breakfast facilities are perfect and the wifi is... More

Loved staying in town and Paula had great pointers for eating in town and exploring the area. We rented bikes for 80 pesos/24 hours and went to the Tulum ruins, gran cenote (if you don't mind biking near cars) and down to the beach. Absolutely gorgeous town and I can't wait to go back!!

My 7 night stay at Secret Garden was wonderful. The staff and owner were hospitable and accomodating. The hotel had been highly recommended by a close friend of mine who visits yearly. The room was clean, comfortable and the garden area was tranquil and beautifully kept. I found the location to be very convienant and just a couple of blocks... More

This is a budget hotel, but still a little pricy for what you got. The garden is very nice, and the people who work there are going above and beyond. For some reason I assumed that there was a pool, so that was my first disappointment. When you not in a resort at the beach Tulum is not as developed,... More

The hotel enviroment is made to make you feel at ease in full relaxation. The rooms, chilling places & hammocks are just perfect. The location is easy and practical and the people is the nicest of all. Quite helpful to find the right places to visit and moving around.

Awesome spot in Tulum town! Beautiful gardens, EPIC HAMMOCKS, and an adorable dog. The rooms are very cute, with lots of little touches like incense and decorations. The wifi was a little slow and there were pretty insignificant issues in the room. But this isn't a luxury beach hotel, it is a great place to come home to after a... More

Very friendly and personal level of service. The hostesses know you by first name and you will get plenty tips and information custom-cut to your likes. Garden is a great place to lounge! Bungalow is a basic accommodation with rather small double bed and without AC. Bathroom sink has no hot water and water pressure is very low. All sounds... More
