This was our first all-inclusive vacation. All of the staff were helpful, welcoming, friendly and were always smiling. Our room was gorgeous; had ocean view, balcony, hot tub, large safe for money and valuables that was easy to use, every evening the sounds of waves hitting the beach lulled in the background. The property was immaculate and gated, so there were no pushy peddlers hitting us up for a fresh sale near the lobby or on the beach. There were daily activities and nightly shows for entertainment. Secrets is adults-only, but is connected to another property, Now, that is family-friendly. We rode the bus into town but it was easy to walk around as well. Be warned when you fly into puerto vallarta there are many pushy salespeople in the airport trying to rope you into things, we had ground transportation set up in advance to avoid this whole scene and were thankful for it. I would love to return, will definitely go to a Secrets again. We went during Spring Break and there was always plenty of room in and around the pool and beach areas.
