All four of us loved this hotel. We travel with another couple and go to Mexico 3 to 4 times a year. We have been to many resorts in Cabo, Cancun, Ixtapa and Puerto Vallarta. This is our favorite resort in Mexico. We loved the service at breakfast and lunch from Diego, Raul, Jose and Humberto. They were outstanding. The... More

First let me mention that my review is purely subjective. I am merely describing my experience at this resort mixed with the detailed observation and I am hoping both the reader (and hopefully the hotel) find the comments constructive My wife and I decided to travel to Puerto Vallarta for a few days R&R. No plan to do anything else... More

We stayed in the Preferred Club from 08/06 - 08/13. Right when you walk into the hotel they start spoiling you by giving you a cold wet towel with citrus scent, that was a good treat since the weather was terrible (hot and humid) during that time. This was the third time that I stay in this same hotel and... More

We have been to over 10 adult only resorts. This one is the worst one. First, let's talk about the "adult only" True that there are no kids at the Secrets. BUT. They have a sister hotel just next door, the Now Amber. They advertise 6 "A la carte" restaurant. True. But 4 of them are located in the NOW... More

We stayed at Secrets Vallarta Bay for 4 days in May 2016 & loved it so much, we returned for 4 days in August. The resort is very well maintained, the pools are plentiful & the service - especially around the pool & on the beach - was fantastic.

We stayed at Secrets for six days off a Travelocity deal and didn’t really know what to expect. Neither of us had ever stayed at an All Inclusive resort before and we were blown away! From the service to the room to the view to the facilities, all of it was amazing. The staff is what makes this place so... More
