We found our new home away from home in Puerto Vallarta. Resort was amazing, staff was excellent and there is nothing we would change other than staying longer! We stayed in a swim out room and the room was one of the best I've stayed in at a resort. We didn't utilize the swim out much but it was very...

This was our third visit to Secrets. The first time was almost perfect, the second was marred by a large corporate party that took over the hotel. While the third time was much better the hotel still seems to focus on private functions and this does impact on ordinary guests. We felt that the issue for us is that Thomson...

This is our 2nd year with a group of over 10 couples that we've stayed at the Secrets Vallarta Bay Resort & Spa in Mexico in February. We all love it! The views are amazing, the food is amazing, the property is amazing. But the best thing about the place is the wait staff. Especially our poolside waiters Jorge, Monolo...

Carlos Diaz was awesome at the pool. Not only did he treat us like family he was very personable and friendly. We really enjoyed his company. We got chosen to get a picture with an awesome watermelon drink! Can't wait to come back again. It was great to dine at a different restaurant each night. Great Job! Everyone at the...

Our Junior Suite had a damp smell due to the humid atmosphere. The main asset for this hotel is the friendly and attentive staff. The hotel has a sister hotel for families in the same complex with shared restaurants which provide an excellent choice of cuisine. Our preferred restaurant being the French restaurant. Dining dress code in the various restaurants...

Three years ago we (2 couples) loved this resort so much we knew we would be back. Just returned from PV and while some things were the same others were not so good. the resort itself is laid out very nice. The location is great due to being midway from airport to the downtown "malecon" . There were mostly small...

Stayed for seven days in a Junior Oceanview Suite. The rooms were spacious, clean and the bathroom area was spectacular. All the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We especially loved Benito in the Preferred Club Lounge and Caesar, a waiter at the Market Cafe during breakfast time. The pool was a little on the small size but adequate and...

Great resort! While we usually don't think food at all-inclusive resorts in anything but average, the food here was good! The staff was great, especially Jorge at the pool and Benny in the preferred club. The beach is a bit rocky, but the view is stunning. We happened to be there for the Super Bowl and they did a great...

What a great place to have peaceful respite when you want and then have fun with great people when you want. You can enjoy total peace and quiet in your room or the many secluded seating areas or the lobbies which provide spectacular views of the resort and ocean/beach. Or you can have great conversations with other guests while lounging...

Seemed like a bunch of adults reliving their spring break. Loud and crowded all the time. Food was way below average except the breakfast buffet which had many good options. Staff was very attentive. Many activities at hotel available. Will not go back.
