My husband and I traveled with 2 other couples and stayed in the swim up rooms. We really enjoyed the breakfast buffet in the Market and the Barefoot Grill at lunch time. Omar took VERY good care of us with drinks/food at the pool. Luis took VERY good care of us in the hot tub and our private pool. They... More

Do not stay at Secrets if you ever go to another resort and expect that resort to be of the same caliber as Secrets. Right from the time you arrive at this resort until the time you leave, you are made to feel special and the service provided was exceptional throughout our stay. I have stayed at many, many resorts... More

I am a travel agent for 20 years. I have travelled extensively. Secrets Vallarta Bay is truly a 5 star All Inclusive Resort. Rooms are contemporary style with a huge shower and great king bed and all rooms have a view of the Bay of Banderas. Food: there is lobster tails to red snapper to shrimps to Filet Mignon. What...

Loved the resort! Room was great, Preferred tower with balcony hot tub. Food was very good and a nice variety. Bar service was great. Service staff were all wonderful. Resort was clean with nice pools. Why the two stars? After check in, we were "invited" to tour the place, have breakfast and review the "loyalty program". This last bit I... More

Very nice property, spotlessly clean, great food and friendly staff. 10 minutes to board walk, if you like rock and roll 60's thru 80's, go to the Day Off beach bar at night. Relax and people watch. A must do at night, shopping during the day and night. The bronze statues are stunning, and the sand castle art a must... More

Comparing this to some of the finer resorts in Cabo, Secrets is an absolute bargain. My wife and myself took our 31 and 28 year old "kids" and their respective fiance and girlfriend. Probably one of the cleanest and nicest properties we've traveled. The overly spacious rooms all overlook the ocean and pool area. WE all agreed the staff couldn't... More

My husband and I stayed at Secrets for four nights, beginning on Feb 16, 2015. We stayed at Secrets in Jamaica in 2014 so we knew what to expect as far as amenities, etc. Let me begin by saying we had no issue with musty room or crowing roosters--two complaints I have read about. We stayed in the Preferred section... More

My husband and I stayed here from 29th January for 2 weeks. We flew out on the Thomson Dreamliner and as previous reviews we were also delayed for 6 hours due to the snow. It was such a long journey getting there but it was so worth it once we arrived at the beautiful resort. From the moment you step... More

I have told so many people about the wonderful time we had at the Secrets resort in Vallarta Bay! Several people asked for the hotel description and link to the resort and will most likely book a vacation there! EVERYTHING about the resort was phenomenal! We always were made to feel very special and I could definitely tell every employee... More

Stayed here in 2013 with my husband and came back in 2014 bringing my daughter & her partner! Love everything about you guys! Staff are fantastic! Especially waiters around the pool. AAAAA. Only problem we had this year was with your car rental guy, never in office and never returned our phone calls. We rented a car elsewhere eventually. But... More
