The spacious bathrooms are stocked with high-end toiletries, eliminating the need to pack essentials like toothpaste, razors and hand sanitizer. You don’t even have to pack sunscreen.

Secrets Moxché will ask when you book whether you’re celebrating a honeymoon or anniversary. Special surprises, like a rose-petal-strewn path leading to the bed along with chilled champagne are the norm.


For foodies, Secrets Moxché has 11 restaurants conveniently located on-site, each offering a diverse range of international cuisines. From local dishes to global delights, there’s something to please every palate.

From Bisou French restaurant to the authentic Dos Almos Mexican restaurant, your biggest challenge of the day might be where to eat. Don’t miss the chance to sample the amazing small plates at Seasoul restaurant. The tacos are incredible.

In addition to restaurants, you’ll find several bars, including a swim-up bar and a tequila bar. Why not order a Mezcal Margarita and enjoy the sunshine? Of course, all the restaurants have wine, beer and cocktails, too.

Things to do

Find a spot on the beach with a couple of lounge chairs, a thatched umbrella and a waiter who is there at your beck and call. A day lounging on the beach may be just what you need to reignite your relationship.

When you tire of the beach, you’ll find a plethora of activities to keep you busy:

  • Try paddleboarding.
  • Enjoy a tequila tasting.
  • Take a yoga class on the beach.
  • Play beach volleyball.
  • Relax at the swim-up bar.
  • Take Spanish lessons.
  • And so much more.


Secrets Resorts is known for its unlimited-luxury concept, meaning everything is included, from gourmet dining and top-shelf drinks to room service. It’s a liberating feeling to enjoy a vacation without constantly reaching for your wallet. This allows you to focus on enjoying each other without worrying about additional costs.

Secrets Moxché pampers you with private balconies and in-room gourmet dining, creating an atmosphere perfect for love. The staff is there to cater to your every need, from chocolate-covered strawberries to a full gourmet meal right in your room.

Though there is not a scuba package as part of your stay at the Playa del Carmen resort, you can ask the concierge to help you find a trustworthy local company. Mexico has some of the best Caribbean scuba diving in the world.

Final thoughts

If you’re thinking, “This all sounds great, but I have young kids, and it’s just not the right time for us to take a vacation,” think again. An article on Very Well Family had this to say about making time for your relationship: “Allowing yourself time away sets a good example of self-care. This may even translate to your kids following your lead, taking better care of themselves when they’re adults.” Time away from kids really should be part of a healthy family lifestyle.
