My husband and I stayed for a week and enjoyed everything about this resort. The food was fantastic, our favourite was Oceana. The room was very clean and had everything we needed and more. There was always some sort of activity going on around the pool area throughout the day if you chose to participate. Our check in and check...

This is my 3rd Secrets Resort. I had a great vacation with some really positive things. If you stay in the regular rooms, you have a wonderful view of the ocean. The restaurants were good. We particularly enjoyed Capers, Bordeaux, and Himitsu. Our experience at Oceana was lacking. There were no tables on the adult side, so they asked if...

Visited PV in Dec. 2015 for our 1st wedding anniversary. The resort is totally beautiful, very VERY clean. The food was okay, some hits and some misses but overall it was good it was all inclusive, try it all and find what you like. You will be approached for the time share but for $30 bucks we got a massage...

Registration was great, then we move to long waits with the elevators the whole stay. Walk into our room and are greeted a musky gross smells. Sink was clogged (how does housekeeping not know this?), outlet falling off wall on bathroom counter, no lightbulb in master night stand and overall isn't a clean room. I saw the same dead bugs...

Better than 1st visit - as there was no loud corporate events till midnight or drunk guests who puke in the elevator. Good: The services from some of the staff are EXCELLENTE.

We visited this resort for our 1st anniversary. There is great selection of restaurants so many choices for our week stay. The only problems we encountered was the service. We sat down for dinner one night and the waiter didn't come and take our order for 15 mins. It's like the whole resort is understaffed. Even at the beach it...

If your looking for an honest review this is it. In my honest opinion this is one of the best resorts in have ever stayed at. I have stayed mainly at 4 or 5* for the last 15 years (3x yr) in Mexico so I have many to compare too. I have stayed at Now/Dreams previously and if you don't...

My wife and I were looking for a nice relaxing vacation and we found it with Secrets Vallarta Bay in Puerto Vallarta.

Secrets is a typical vacation resort. One side for families, the other adults only. The food is hit or miss. Some good some not so good. Drinks are plentiful and town is a 30 minute walk away so you can go there if you want a better selection. There was always a nice place to lay by the beach and...
