First of all, we've gone to several all-inclusive resorts, but primarily in Cancun. I love the view in Puerto Vallarta! There were mountains covered in jungles on one side, and open ocean on the other. When we got there, we were greeted w/ cool wet face towels and glasses of champagne. The entire staff was kind and accommodating the entire... More

I won't go into detail about the hotel, safe to say the rooms are good as is the pool area and yes the beach is rocky (typical Pacific side). Here's my tips ... 1) If you pay c£2,500-3,000 for the holiday & flight it's great value ... pay full whack and you won't be so happy. 2) Don't upgrade, all... More

My wife and I stayed at Secrets for one week in December, just as a quick winter escape and break from work. This was only our second beach destination vacation at an all-inclusive resort. Upon arrival, we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff with champagne and a cold towel. Check-in was quick and efficient. We were aware of the... More

Today is day 1 of 11 days here. It has taken 2 hours to get on wifi and keeps dropping. Started out supposed to be I. Ocean view preferred ended up in garden view with no ocean view at all. Told we could upgrade for a price then that room became unavailable. With no other options but one for an... More

We stayed for two weeks at the beginning of December. Rooms - the rooms are really nice. A huge bed, amazing shower and very spacious. The bed is so comfortable I actually miss it!! The maids service was excellent. Fridge was filled with beers and soft drinks. It is a shame they can't get rid of the musty smell. The... More

We had been to the Secrets in Cabo the year prior, so we knew what to expect (and recognized that Cabo, in general, is a much higher-quality / nicer resort town). We loved it so much in Cabo, we wanted to go back. And, it was great! The beach was beautiful, albeit a bit rocky, the pool was delightful -... More

This hotel was awesome. Great top of the line booze. Very friendly staff. Fernado #1 (shorter person) was amazing at serving our very large group and always smiling. Rooms we always made up later in the afternoon but a great job done every day. the only thing lacking a little was the entertainment staff were a little light and could... More

Had an great stay at Secrets Vallarta Bay Resort & Spa in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Only issue was the room. I was in 1815. Great room in itself but the view and noice from the entry area stunk! Liertally! The room exposure from the front door over looked a junky parking area, unpaved. The tour busses and some run down... More

Great hotel, super friendly staff, cleanest hotel I've ever stayed in. I've been to Mexico five times, this was the best hotel in Mexico. The only complaint I would make was that there wasn't very much nightly entertainment (Cancun was much better for the shows). The restaurants all had great food and you didn't have to make reservation/have a maximum... More
