Overall holiday was very good. Beach/poolside areas where not large another for the size of the hotel.Also wasn't help that most days they had corporate functions where they closed large sections of the pool areas also the beach to accommodate these functions with no prior notice.

Since I went to Secrets Vallarta Bay, I have thought of writing this review, because I questioned if it was worth paying extra for preferred club or a suite.......I could enjoy the same beach and pool and restaurants without either.

We had a great time at Secrets Vallarta Bay. The service was great everywhere we went. The food was great, especially the French restaurant. The activities staff were great as well. Shout out goes to Karisma. She was great to play beach volleyball with and does a nice job on the tequila tasting activity. I would also like to thank...

I am actually going back next month to look at real estate property. This is coming from a person that has been to several Secret resorts and travels extensively around...

This was our first time at this resort, 2nd at a secrets. It was lovely. The hotel rooms all face the beach, we were on floor 11 and looked across the whole bay. Stunning! Has a nice balcony with table and chairs to sit outside. Rooms are big and beds comfortable. Don't be surprised when you see the bathroom is...

My wife and I returned home on March 18th, 2017. We spent 6 days in the Preferred Club where we were spoiled on a daily basis. Food-Accommodations-Service all were first rate. We did spend the extra cost for our accommodations but felt it was Well Worth IT !! Having your private bar at the Preferred Club Entrance was for anyone...

First impression--Love being able to see the Bay from the moment you pull up. The water is visible through the lobby. Nice, but surprised how small the resort property is. Pros: Free lessons for paddle boarding and kayaking You can kayak to within 50 ft of dolphins. Yoga and water aerobics available. Rooms gorgeous. No upgrades needed unless you want...
