Very nice resort. Staff was wonderful! Enjoyed breakfast each morning at the buffet. Cesar was usually our waiter ... he was the best! Making sure we had everything we needed. Out to the pool area and we would be welcomed by Carlos. Another great waiter who made sure we wanted for nothing! Also we had a wonderful housekeeper, Guadalupe, who...

We had a great stay at the secrets in puerto Vallarta. The hotel is located on the beach (which is somewhat rocky-bring water shoes) and closeby to many shops and is a couple miles north of the historic part of puerto Vallarta. We walked north to the mall and south to the historic part of the city with no problems....

I just returned from staying at Secrets Vallarta Bay. My husband and I and my son and his wife were there for a week. I have to say we enjoyed the resort and the town of Puerta Vallarta. The resort was fine, but it can't compare to Secrets The Vine in Cancun. The resort is attached to Now Amber, which...

I've been here for almost two weeks now and have found it pretty average. This is not a 5* resort and is let down on lots of fronts. The service is poor, not enough staff on duty to accommodate the number of guests. The pool/beach area is totally overcrowded and there is not one place to have any piece n...

We originally had booked a preferred room on the Now side but, we were upgraded to the Secrets side on arrival. We were checked in at the Preferred check-in. The lounge is just behind and has a bartender and snacks throughout the day. The room was clean and roomy with an ocean view. We slept every night with only the...

Beachfront store in your face was the only negative mark here. Food was above average compared to other all inclusives. Staff was great everywhere we went. Especially Octavio, and Alejandro in Preferred club, and Fernando poolside. Thank you for making our vacation worth coming back again.

From the service to the food, everything at Secrets was amazing. Over the week we had two pool-side servers (Carlos Diaz and Juan Rubio) who were fantastic. We never needed to ask for another drink (there was always a new one on its way), they were always smiling, and they were genuinely invested in ensuring we had a great vacation.
