Beautiful resort, and clean. The problem is you will be harassed by time-share peddlers, on and off the resort. The problem is more with city of Puerto Vallerta. The city is overran with peddlers of time-share sales or peddlers of "junk" souvenir items. You won't be able to enjoy the beach or the resort, or the city. As for the... More

This Resort is fantastic. I traveled there alone from July 10th-24th. The grounds are beautiful, clean and meticulously cared for. The pools can sometimes get a bit dirty and very warm but a minor thing. The food is very good and very nice having 24 hour room service. The rooms are gorgeous....beds are very comfortable and clean. The key to... More

This is an absolutely beautiful place. We had the standard room and it was amazing. Very large room, great ocean view, super luxurious. The food was good both at the buffet and a la carte restaurants. We ate at Bordeaux a few times and the food was always very good. Service in all areas was exceptional. Everyone was super helpful...

Very nice and clean hotel. Good choice of few restaurants. Rooms are big and got pretty much everything you need. But there's a few buts. Local people selling some stuff right on the beach in front of the hotel, so if you are going for a swim you won't miss them. If I wanna buy something I can go to... More

My husband and I have been on cloud 9 since our fortnight's holiday to Secrets,Vallarta Bay at the end of June 2015 .Everything was perfect from the moment of our arrival. Our room (1804) on the 8th floor was beautifully appointed-----------a huge bed, twin marble wash hand basins,a Jacuzzi bath and a lovely shower, and as for the sea view... More

We recently stayed at this resort the first week of April. We were originally booked with Now Amber but they upgraded us to Secrets as it was just my husband and myself and they were needing bigger rooms for families. Well WHAT AN UPGRADE!!! We have been to Puerto Vallarta before and also several times to Cabo as that is... More

My boyfriend and I recently spent two weeks at Secrets Vallarta Bay and had the most wonderful holiday. It was our first time in Mexico and only our second time going all inclusive but will it certainly not be our last. We generally avoid all inclusive resorts as neither of us are fond of buffet food and have been reluctant... More

I surprised my husband with a trip to Puerto Vallarta to celebrate his bday in November, 2013. That was our first time in Vallarta. I choose Secrets for being a Adults-only hotel and also based on reviews I had read on tripadvisor. It was better than I imagined. I upgraded previously to the Preference Club and I really recommend it!!... More

I have very high expectations when it comes to hotels. The service was exceptionally bad. The staff was pretentious and often rude. The hotel and rooms were absolutely stunning. The food was amazing. Other than you had to dress up for every meal I really enjoyed all of the restaurants. The pool area was great. We stayed on the preferred... More
