My wife and I have just enjoyed 14 days at this good hotel in daytime sunshine. No real complaints as the staff were a credit to the company.The food at the hotel restaurants was mainly very good, especially the Bordeaux that suited out pallet. The portions at the al a carte restaurants are quality and not quantity as some visitors... More

The rooms, the food, the pool, the staff were all brilliant. If u do your research you will see before you travel the beach is far from the best however the hotel makes up for this! The town is close by and is great for a really nice meal or casual tacos! A great holiday all round with not a... More

Just returned from two weeks at this hotel. Staff could not do enough for you. Food excellent in the al a carte restaurants. Beach was sandy in places but mainly gritty so we used the hotel pools. We did three excursions and two trips into the town which was mainly flea market type selling souvenirs. Taxi charges were between 70... More

My wife and I have enjoyed many of the Secrets Resorts in the past and were expecting another good vacation. Let's start with the location, the web site and all the literature shows a wonderful palm studded beautiful beach. The reality is that right next to the Secrets Vallarta bay is an abandoned resort with garbage every where, squatters living... More

We had a very relaxing vacation at Secrets! The staff is wonderful. Everyone from our housekeeper, Rocico, to Esmarilla Villa and Hugo and David at the pool. My most favorite employee was Isaia at the swim up bar. He met me on the first day, and remembered my name then rest of our vacation! We were pleased with the food,... More

We came to Secrets Vallarta Bay for the first time last year and had such an amazing experience we went back again this year!! We were both unsure about going to the same place twice but Secrets once again wow'd us! The rooms were gorgeous and always spotless, the service was exceptional, the food at every restaurant was fabulous and... More

This resort was fantastic! There were a few minor things, so let's get that part over with, but be sure to keep reading! 1. Elevators are hot as hell. A small amount of a/c could do wonders for this luxury establishment. 2. There are a billion lights and switches in the room. Take time to familiarize in advance, so you're... More

Avoid for WEDDINGS **Unless, you don't mind missing out on your wedding cake, having them lose your guest book, and trying to change reception location 6 days prior to wedding day, and dropping the ball on a lot of other wedding details.** Before you dismiss this review thinking it's just a girl with a PMS rant (I confess I do...

Came here two years ago for my company's "President's Club" for top salespeople. While officially it's paid for by my company, it's by no means a business trip. We were there to eat, drink and play and we had a blast. First of all, love that it's adults only - don't get me wrong, kids are great, but sometimes you... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here recently, as his friends were having their destination wedding here. I had never stayed at an all-inclusive resort before, but I was pleasantly surprised by Secrets! The resort is gorgeous and has everything you want/need for your vacation. I'd highly recommend this resort if you are looking for an all-inclusive spot in Puerto Vallarta.
