I've been meaning to write this review for months! My husband and I stayed here in January 2010 for a week and loved Hotel Secreto.
The room was gorgeous, the bed was a super comfy and the sitting area was spacious and comfortable (covered in white towelling - fab!). The bed on the balcony was fantastic (yes, we did end up falling asleep out there one night) and great for lazing around in private. There's American cable TV which was nice on the couple of occassions we watched TV. Lovely pool and the spa was nice to sit in in the evening and sip a cocktail (you can order them from reception or go to the supermarket and bring your own) the only downside of the pool was that it didn't get a lot of sunlight. The breakfast was fine - a bit samey after eating the same thing for a week (croissants, jam, fruit & tea or coffee) but the fruit was always lovely and fresh. And after the first day they knew that we wanted a pot of coffee and a tea and the water had to be hot!
The location is great. It's a 5 minute walk to everything but tucked down a little laneway so it feels like it's in the middle of nowhere. The laneway is rutted and not well lit at night but we necer felt unsafe.
I absolutely recommend staying here and we hope to go back. The hotel combined with the laidback pace of Isla makes for a perfect, relaxing holiday.
