Talk about bending over backwards!!! These guys do it! If your in the pool make sure to ask for pool waiter Fernando(there are 2 Fernando's and they are both great). He works at the pool with the swim up bar and works the area closest to the actual bar itself. I have never seen a more prompt and attentive waiter... More

We were at Secrets from April 2-9. It was beautiful. Our room was spacious, the bed was comfortable, the pillows were comfortable. The food was spectacular. The drinks were cold and plentiful. The service was impeccable. The pool towels were always accessible. Not once did we hear the children from Now Amber on the adults side The a la cartes,... More

Overall, the resort gets an Excellent rating. The hotel facilities, spa, restaurants and rooms are beautiful and the staff, for the most part, amazing. The only negative was the high pressure sales for the Unlimited Vacations arm of these resorts. i believe that an opt in/opt out at time of reservation should be given, since we felt obligated to participate...

Hotel location great, facilities excellent, accommodation excellent, food very good and plenty of variety. House wine all from Chile and very good. Crowning glory was the friendliness of the staff. WiFi very good.

Secrets was a fantastic place for a mother daughter trip. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the property was easy for my mom to manoeuvre with her walker! Some of our favourite staff members were Jose, our fantastic pool area server; Daniel with the entertainment team; and Fernanda, the hostess in the restaurants. Great food and and the... More

Wow. My husband and I (age 35-45) stayed in a swim-out room for 5 nights in April, leaving our kiddos back home with the grandparents. We are not foodies and had a prior "all inclusive" hotel experience that did not leave us with a favorable impression (we felt trapped and gluttonous). This place definitely changed our minds. The hotel itself... More

I didn't realize my 2nd review was never posted for our stay March 2014 at Secrets Vallarta Bay. This was our 2nd time at Secrets, we stayed the previous year in March 2013 also. We are an adult couple ages 29-32. This was our 4th visit to Puerto Vallarta, we stayed twice at Dreams Puerto Vallarta (now Hyatt Ziva). We... More

Being new to 'all-inclusive' and Mexico, I must admit that we were uncertain about this trip. But, upon arriving at Secrets Vallarta Bay, we were welcomed with a warmth matched only by the glorious sunshine. All that said, we found the value offered at Secrets Vallarta Bay to be exceptional. Our stay was far beyond our expectations and we found... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here the first week of April and we can not say enough amazing things about this resort. The room: so spacious, clean, comfortable. The staff did en excellent job cleaning every day. We had a suite on the 11th floor which was a bit of an upgrade as we were originally supposed to be on... More
