Secrets Silversands: Adult play land
What is an adult play land you may ask? Picture this: a swim up bar, a hot tub with a view of the ocean, unlimited drinks and food, nightly entertainment and a beautiful room to go to sleep every night. It really is paradise for adults.
While planning my 30th birthday, I decided I wanted to take a trip to an adults only all inclusive resort in Mexico. Secrets Silversands, located in the Riviera Maya quickly became one of our favorite vacations. Champagne and cooling towels in to the marble grand entry await arrival of each guest. A bellman will guide you to your room and give you a brief tour along the way. Our bellman was unbelievable by offering to swing a store on his way home that evening to pick up long pants for my husband, who didn’t pack any and were needed for most of the restaurants for dinner (note to self: pack long pants next time). He even left flowers in the room for my birthday along with a decorated bed and door.
The resort is full of anything an adult ready to relax and unwind could possibly want. Beach cabanas and chairs, pools, bars, and lounge areas throughout. Our favorite part of each evening was coming back to a turned down bed with an itinerary for the next day with all the activities planned. We spent the majority of our vacation lounging in the pool and having Mario, the swim up bartender make us various drinks. In the evening we would go to a show, or enjoy dinner at one of the seven restaurants and visit with one of the friendly couples we met during our stay.
The food is outstanding. From Italian to Mexican, there is something to try for any desire. Every morning a bountiful breakfast buffet complete with make your own omelettes and fresh pastries welcome you to start the day. Lunch can be enjoyed poolside, and each dinner is unique, elegant and delicious. If one felt too exhausted from a day of doing nothing, room service is only a call away.
Decorated with modern grey and white colors and marble flooring, the rooms are spacious and inviting. A soaking tub, large walk in shower and double vanity in the over sized bathroom is spa-like and any girls dream. Comfortable beds help you sleep well at night to wake up and relax again the next day.
Upon initial hesitation of how bored we might get at an all-inclusive resort, I can safely say we were never lacking with things to do. With great service, wonderful food and a stunning location, this vacation can’t be beat. What adult doesn’t want all their cooking and cleaning done for them, activities planned, and no responsibilities but deciding what pool to soak in. Sign me up!
