I decided to book a Puerto Vallarta vacation this year for my birthday and found a willing lady friend to join me. Since I'd been there the past November and found out that the Secrets Vallarta Bay/Now Resorts were brand new and located in the main hotel zone, I booked it for the trip. I have been so impressed by... More

We stayed at this resort from 9/28/13 - 10/5/13. We booked due to the good deal we received on this resort and that it was an adults only. We loved our room and the amenities in it. We were on the 8th floor, end room. Only thing that was an issue was the noise at night from the lobby that... More

Can't say enough good things about this place. The rooms are absolutely beautiful. We stayed in the non preferred side and it was still incredible, huge rooms, two person jacuzzi tub and ALL the rooms are ocean view with a great two person shower as well. It seems that the time that we were here (still here, Oct 1-8) was... More

We were very pleased with this hotel, particularly when compared to other PV hotels we’ve stayed in. I’m basing my opinions with the other hotels in mind, as all seem to like to call themselves 4 and 5 stars when they’re not. There might be nicer hotels outside of PV, but this is the best I’ve stayed in so far... More

This September I took a long weekend with my girlfriend and opted to stay at the secrets all inclusive resort in Puerto Vallarta. The hotel was great for the price - clean and friendly staff. We had an excellent time during the day enjoying the sun and the casual activities the hotel offered by the pool. The food was just... More

I have to start off by saying this is NOT what was advertised as a high end resort by FAR.. I understand things can happen that could make your experience less than GOOD.. and usually if the place or business is well managed those mistakes are fixed and you move on.. not here. this hotel is a great looking "...

Loved this hotel! We have stayed at other Secrets resorts and this one doesn't disappoint. First, service was amazing. Staff are so accommodating and helpful. Rooms are absolutely lovely. Every room above the first floor has a beautiful view of the ocean. Pools are fantastic. Only a couple of little things that we didn't love. The food at the French... More

Secrets Vallarta is a great adult hotel. Got the preferred room, with the butler service. Rooms are clean and everything is exceptional. Food is exceptional as well. View is phenomenal. When we were there in March, we could see whales from the lobby.

So I am still sad that I had to leave Secrets Vallarta Bay!!! This was my birthday trip and as members of the Unlimited Vacation Club, we used two of our free night vouchers for a 10 day/9 night stay! I can honestly say that this was the best vacation we've had. We stayed in the preferred area and the... More
