The resort was excellent. The staff was unbelievable. Everyone wanted to make your experience a vacation to remember. The food was just ok, not horrible/not great. The drinks were delicious, especially the rainbow shots!!! You have to try it, it is magic:) The rooms were very clean and spacious. We stayed in the preferred suites, which had a great view...

We had a beautiful ocean-view junior sweet. The staff here is very friendly and efficient. Food is great and bartenders work hard and fast to provide drinks. Front desk, operators, concierge, etc.., all were very helpful. They made our trip very easy and relaxing. The WiFi service is weak and unreliable. I would have handled a few things better before...

Christmas spent at Secrets Hotel in Vallarta Bay - really great holiday - wonderful resort where the service and accommodation defied description. The restaurants within the hotel with the exception of the Italian one were second to none - the Italian one was soulless and disappointing however the many that were there to choose from meant that this was the...

Our room was fantastic, the food was great (especially at Bordeaux), the staff was incredible. I am the kind of traveler that never goes to the same place twice... and we just booked a return trip to Secrets PV in April. I love many places in Mexico, we have been to several other secrets, but Puerto Vallarta has it all.... More

Tom K, Thank you for taking the time to share your review with us on TripAdvisor. I am so glad that you found the Hotel, gourmet options and staff to be beautiful, however I must admit I am disappointed to hear that you may have been inconvenienced by the music from weddings and that the vendors seemed a nuisance.

Great rooms, great food, exceptional service. We stayed for five nights in November. I loved having a la carte restaurants that did not require reservations. The spanish coffee at the Mexican Restaurant is an amazing show. We went fishing directly from the beach which was cool. The champagne welcome is a really nice touch. Free international calling was a nice... More

We stayed for a week and had a tremendous experience. The room was fabulous, the wait staff was friendly and efficient, the tennis pro was amazing (Thank you, Salvador!). The only downside is the fact that the WiFi service is weak. We will definitely stay at Secrets Vallarta Bay the next time we are in town. LOVE IT!

When we arrived we were asked if we wanted to upgrade and although our room was very nice, later that evening I decided to surprise my... More

Property, rooms, staff, food, drinks, EVERYTHING was amazing! The entertainment crew is fun but not pushy. If you want to play beach volleyball or not, they're very cool. Lots of kayaking and paddle boarding opportunities.... always something to do or just laying on the beach - whichever you choose. Since the adult side and family sides are separate, we were... More

We arrived very late in the night, however the reception did everything to accommodate us and put us up on the 14th floor. Although the stay was in October, it rained only in the night and the day time was brilliant sunshine. The rooms are very clean and the drinks are top-noch. The service is also very good. The swim...

Short ride from the airport. Beautiful hotel. The lobby and rooms are gorgeous.. The food was delicious- lots of healthy options. I ate fish for lunch and dinner every day. The waiters (all of the staff, really) on the beach are wonderful. I loved the coffee shop. People will tell you to walk in to town. It was a safe... More
