Why We Love Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun

Cancun, located along the Riviera Maya coastline in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, is the gateway to the Caribbean and the Mayan world. A premier tropical destination with an average annual temperature of 78 degrees, Cancun offers year-round luxury and all-inclusive accommodations, white sandy beaches, famous nightlife, golf courses, snorkeling, scuba diving, and even jungle tours.


During my recent vacation to Cancun, Secrets Silversands was my home away from home. This adults-only, all-inclusive resort has a modern, chic feel with a lively and upbeat vibe. Located a mere 15 minutes from the Cancun Airport, it is easily accessible. Secrets Silversands offers 441 modern suites with suspended king-sized bed or two double beds, in-suite Jacuzzi for two, private terrace or balcony and many more ammenities. With the standard rooms being almost 700 square feet, they offer some of the largest accommodations in the area. This is great for friends who are sharing a room, there is enough space to feel comfortable.


During the day, activities abound. Whether it’s swimming up to the pool bar for a refreshing drink, taking advantage of the numerous water sports or fun classes, snorkeling the world’s second largest barrier reef, or soaking up the sun on the sugar sand beach, there is always something happening. The beach is pristine and the water is very swimmable. During our visit in April, there was no crowd giving us a very private feel. The beach waiter service is an added bonus. Secrets resorts will also celebrate most national holidays and important sporting events on property, so you don’t have to worry about missing out!

Cancun is famous for its nightlife and Secrets Silversands does not disappoint. Dance under the stars at the outdoor bar, take in a show at the theater bar or party in the music and sports bar, just a few of the eight bars and lounges on the property.


When it comes to dining, Secrets Silversands boasts extraordinary benefits and services. The Sip, Savor & See Dining Experience offers guests the chance to enhance their culinary experience by enjoying dinner and nightly entertainment at select, nearby Secrets, Dreams and Now Resorts & Spas. Guests are responsible for the cost of transportation to and from the resorts but it is an amazing way to experience all of Cancun.

For those who choose not to leave the all-inclusive resort, you won’t be left out of the scrumptious dining experiences. There is a wide variety of restaurants and bars at the resort including the Asian restaurant, Himitsu, offering a very unique sushi experience. This is a no-miss experience! Himitsu’s sushi bar uses a Japanese style conveyor belt method. The belt carries sushi rolls and sashimi around the sushi bar, allowing diners to pick any dish they would like to try. Want to eat poolside – the grilled chicken at the pool grill was to die for. The resort also offers 24-hour room service, and a coffee shop.

Honeymooners who want unique accommodations can stay in the Over the Pool Cabana Honeymoon Suite. Facing the Caribbean Sea, the bungalows are perched on stilts above a 282 square meter pool. Ideal for couples, this cabana features in room climate control, 60″ HD TV screen, spacious bathroom area that offers a Jacuzzi overlooking the private plunge pool, walk in rain spa shower, double vanities, walk in closet. Additionally, the suite offers an expanded, private furnished terrace with outdoor private plunge pool. I can’t imagine a more luxurious place to spend your honeymoon.
