The ride took about 25 minutes and playing the game of âwhat resort is that?â on the way up made the time go much faster. When we arrived, the dock was lit up by iridescent purple lights and I knew the night was going to be one I would not forget.
We were welcomed by an entourage of employees and we each had our own âflashlight leaderâ. Yes, that is right, we each had our own person that held a flashlight up the dock so we could see where we were walking. True service.
The resort consists of 13 private cabanas, all focused on serving couples. If you do the math, that is a max of 26 for the entire resort. Pure privacy. Romance. Relaxation.

Each couple, when they check in, receive an iTouch that controls everything in your cabana, including unlocking the door, controlling the air conditioner, television, lights. This is totally not Belize, but I was buying in. I wanted that iTouch.
The attention to detail was insane-from the special mosquito repellent spritzers that sprayed every so often, to the mensâ and womensâ hats hung in the entrances of the respective restrooms, to the leather covered menus. You could tell someone put serious love into the design of El Secreto.
World’s largest candle?
We sat down for dinner. My selections: blue cheese salad, four cheese fettucini, and banana cheesecake. The prices were much more reasonable than I had anticipated, both for the meal and for the drinks.
If you are wanting a private, luxurious, waited on hand and foot, experience on Ambergris Caye, El Secreto can cover all of those needs. I truly felt like I was in a fairytale. Only hoping I can make it back to sleep in one of those cabanas and be given an iTouch.
Thanks Ginger…as always if you want to stop in and say hi to Krista, you can find her at Crazy Canuck’s every single day. And…I can’t believe I could not make it on this trip. Now that I see these pictures? I am seriously pissed.
I think I’ll try to make it up (real meaning: beg them to take me) during the day…
