Girlfriend and I enjoyed a long weekend away at Secrets Puerto Los Cabos over cinco de mayo. The hotel is new this year, so we were a tiny bit nervous (there not being a lot of reviews yet). I am happy to say that we were 100% satisfied and I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.
This hotel is definitely luxury - the grounds and scenery are breathtaking - the desert, the infinity pool, the deep blue ocean in the background. Also, the weather was great - very hot but not humid. We upgraded to the swim out room and it was worth every penny. The food was great, and the staff was very accommodating. We loved the entertainment staff, who went out of their way to make sure everyone was having fun (Oscar and David!), and the cinco de mayo festivities were over the top - ending with a fireworks display!
One thing to note is that this resort is definitely not for a young crowd. Most people seemed to be here to relax and unwind. This was perfect for my friend and I as we both left our young kids at home with the dads - we just wanted to lay by the pool and read all day. This is not a spring break atmosphere. No loud music, no late night dance parties, no drinking games by the pool. The crowd is mostly 35+, reading books, napping, playing golf, relaxing.
The rooms were gorgeous, the shower was amazing, the gym facilities are nice and new and clean, the beds comfortable, and the swim out was the BEST.
A word about the beach - this is the pacific ocean. It's not crystal clear turquoise blue water with powder white sand. It's deep blue water, with coarse brown sand, the waves are big and rough, and the water is cold. It's beautiful to look at, but this is not the carribbean. Also, the beach is a bit of a walk down from the resort (maybe 5 min, through a tunnel). I prefer the pool over the ocean, but if you are a beach person, this might not be the best resort for you.
Oh if you download the secrets app for your iphone you get free calls to the US (through VOIP). It wasn't always perfect, but it was pretty good for the price (free!). Free wifi throughout the resort also.
I highly recommend this resort!
