Out of all the Secrets Resorts, Silver Sands had the best décor to their restaurants. All Secrets resorts have the same names to their restaurants but different décor and different menus. The décor here passes the others easily. I would also say that they have the best pools of all the Secrets resorts. There is one pool that is by one of the ocean front room blocks that at one point goes under the building (the first two floors are removed) and turns into an infinity pool underneath it. Infinity pools are always nice optical illusions if done right and very relaxing to hang out in as well.

From the moment you enter this resort you notice their use of natural light. This gives you the feel that you are in a much bigger area than you really are because you can see outside at so many areas. Those that have been to either of the Excellence Resorts in Mexico will find a lot of similarities with this resort as they have the same architect and the lobby bar is pretty much the same. As you leave the check in and concierge area you have to go down stairs to find a large square bar just like at the Excellence Riviera Cancun and Playa Mujeres. Other similarities are that most of the restaurants are close to the lobby and the theatre is very similar. However the similarities stop there. This resort does not have as much walking involved. The distance between different points seems like less of a walk.

Near the Lobby they have a lounge called the Peferred Club Lounge. This is where those who booked the preffered club receive their private check in. In that lounge is a bar with an upgraded liquor selection. They also serve a continental breakfast and during the day they have hot and cold snacks. The lounge has computers with internet for guest use but if you brough your laptop you will have complimentary internet in your room via data port. All preferred club rooms will have an upgraded mini bar and bath amenities. If you book in master suite or a honeymoon sure you will also have a Jacuzzi on your balcony.

Keeping up with the better Adult only resorts in Mexico this resort offers a Jacuzzi in every room and 24 hour room service via a small door near the entrance of your room that only room service and housekeeping can open. This resort appeals to adults of all ages. You will not find that any age group dominates the resort. This resort also appeals to women traveling together for a spa vacation.

Reasons why you would book this resort: You are looking for an adults only resort not far from the Cancun airport. You are looking for a resort that is some secluded (Azul Sensatori is next door to the north and houses and condo to the south but you will not be walking to shopping and nightlife).

Reasons why you would not book this resort: You are planning a vacation with kids. You are looking for resort that is close to shopping and nightlife. You are going to book on of the other Secrets resorts.
