Day 1: Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun
Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun is an adult only (18 years and older) resort. This is a very contemporary looking property that offers Unlimited Luxury which includes unlimited meals, snacks and top-shelf premium drinks. 24 hour room service is available and each room has the “Secret Box” which means when you order room service they will not be knocking at your door to bring you your meal ordered but putting the tray of food into the box and you just access this from your room without seeing anyone.
The resort has eight pools, eight bars and 8 gourmet restaurants (seven of which are a la carte and a buffet). We actually ate at the buffet for lunch and the variety of food choices was outstanding.
On our day of arrival it was raining outside and I was very impressed with the area by the lobby bar which is located downstairs from the lobby. It was a great large space for guests to socialize and keep busy or just hang out if you didn’t want to be in your room. The resort had a ping pong table, darts were being played and even a vendor brought in a monkey for guests to be photographed with.
Non-motorized water sports are available which would include kayaks and hobie cats which are used for sailing. The second largest coral reef is way out in front of the resort.
