Delicious food, fantastic service, clean gorgeous property!!! Would go back in a heartbeat. Hotel is in great location, close to the airport and close to the city. When we visited this property it was newly opened and everything was very clean, well maintained and taken care of. The fact that it is close to the city is great, 5 min... More

We had a quick trip over Labor Day weekend. Upon arriving, we found out that we had the "Preferred" area which was nice. Separate check in with a private bar and snack area. Extremely friendly staff and great service levels. The food was exceptional for an all inclusive. Capers the Italian themed restaurant exceeded expectations. Only issue was one night... More

I never review our hotels because I think that my opinion is the same as everyone else's but this hotel is too wonderful not to mention. The photos on the website are exactly how the rooms look, absolutely beautiful! The service is excellent, lots of restaurants to find your taste. Capers on the Now side was our favorite, great Italian... More

If you read the review I wrote on Secrets Resort & Spa, back in January... Here's the update. Great place if you want to have a child-free vacation (I love children - some of my best friends are children... But I prefer to vacation without them). Food and staff were great, again (particularly at "Bordeaux"). Love the way the hotel... More

From the moment we arrived were greeted with a glass of champagne & a cold eucalyptus scented cold hand towel. We did not need to wait to check in & were upgraded for free! The entire hotel is not only immaculately manicured but gorgeous as well. There is not one thing I can think of that could be done better... More

Upon our arrival at the hotel we were welcomed by staff wth champagne and CHILLED towels! We were upgraded to Secrets instead of the Now. Two minor suggestions: 1) concierge effort to sell timeshare we felt was EXTREMELY EXCESSIVE , 2) the musty smell in our room. Other than that EVERY EXPERIENCE we had at either hotel was FIRST CLASS... More

Last March my partner and I went to Puerto Vallarta for the second time. Secrets Vallarta Bay, I must say, has been one of the best resorts I have stayed in thus far.
