We took this trip at the last minute because of hurricane Irma, so we did not have a lot of time to properly vet the property, my fault. What I wished we had known before landing was: 1). Ignore everyone after going through customs in the airport, they are all trying to sell you a timeshare!! Free cheap tequila we only want your time! Hey if you have the time to spend go for it, we did not!! 2). Once we got to the property the sales pitches continue under VIP treatment again free this free that free, we just want your time! I just wanted a beach and a glass of wine. Rant over, We booked an adults only Preferred Junior Suite. The shuttle picked us up at the airport and did take us to the property, we were not met by anyone. The shuttle driver placed our bags outside the entrance and left. We took our bags to what looked like a front desk, showed our paperwork, passports etc only to be informed we were at the wrong place. The person called a bellman who walked us over to the second front desk, which was still wrong. We finally got to the appropriate place to check in and concierges desk was busy so we sat in a two table bar until they were available. We were offered a nice selection of adult beverages. When the concierge was available they informed us which Resturant's required a reservation, dress code for the different restaurants and the offer to exchange US dollars if needed. That was it, there was no other information that was offered since this was our first time at an all inclusive I did not know what questions to ask. What a perfect opportunity to let us know we could have dined in better facilities we just needed to purchase a bottle of wine, between the four of us that would have been very easy to do! Ok, not what I expected from a 5 star but adequate. Then the VIP person ushered us into her area and offered us the opportunity to take this or that tour at half the price normally offered, she would be happy to meet us for breakfast show us the property etc...yup she wanted to sell us something as well. By now I'm hot tired and totally fed up. We go to our room, again adequate, deep purples interesting color choices but adequate. Unpack bathing suites, sunscreen, hats and books head to the pool where we first met Raphael, who was AMAZING. He was attentive, funny and just very pleasant to have waiting on us! Raphael was able to help us obtain chairs, towels, umbrellas basically whatever we needed. The pool was clean, and the view was great. Emilio (such a charmer) the security gentleman on the beach kept the hawkers at bay while we just finally were able to relax. Pavda Aldo and his staff kept us entertained throughout the week. Ziam did a great job of keeping us in ice cream at the Oceana. Breakfast Buffett with Cesar and Octavio, Maricet and cate every morning was great services ok food, I get that with a buffet it is hard to keep things fresh but the food was again adequate. We had dinner at Bordeaux in the cellar fabulous food a great bottle of wine and great service. Dinner at the Japanese and Mexican Resturant was nice. The food was adequate, the table side guacamole was fresh and a must try!! Capers Resturant in the wine cellar was a great culinary experience. Sergio Torres was our server and definitely suggested the best dishes! The wine sommelier Raul, anticipated our needs and we had a beautiful bottle of Duetto that appealed to all our palates. Sergio was the most helpful by informing us of the different dining options. We are foodies and had we been informed by the concierges desk when we checked in we would have been much much happier. The Chefs table Sergio, explained was a must do and he was correct! The chef Javier and sommelier Raul put together a 7 course meal paired with the perfect wines for our last evening here. The wine cellar and chefs table was not included in the all inclusive but well worth the price! Check out was a complete mess, again at a 5 star property I would have expected our bill to be itemized, not meshed with the other couple we were traveling with and over charged. It took us over 90 minutes to check out. No bellmen were available and once again we had to schlep our bags to the pick up area. If it was not for Rut a young lady who helped haul them with us we would have missed our pick up time. In the end I will not be traveling back to this resort. I do not understand how it got a 5 star rating, and even with upgrading our accommodations they were adequate at best. Very disappointing experience.

Luxury at its best

My wife and I were there from Sept. 9th to 16th and just had a fantastic time. Very well located - closet to airport and downtown, this luxury hotel is a blue print of a paradise. Unlimited top shelf liquor and excellent food with very friendly service were more of a norm than an exception. Highly recommend.

Excellent Trip!

My husband and I stayed at the Secrets VB for just 2 nights last week. We booked through their website and upgraded to the preferred club level. Upon arriving at the airport, we faced the normal barrage of peddlers on the way out, which is always a bit overwhelming, but this time more severe. One guy said, "don't go out there without our transportation if you care about what happens to you ..." Crazy! We booked the Amstar "private transfer" to the hotel, which cost $54 for a 15 minute cab ride. Then again, we were happy to have the already arranged transfer. Upon arriving at the hotel, we were greeted with a cool towel and champagne. Nice touch. We were escorted to the preferred club check-in area with Alejandro, who was awesome! We were then transferred over to the "upsell" - 10 minutes of offering discounted massages and whatnot. We declined, although it was a little awkward. Our room was on the 6th floor with a beautiful view of the Bay. The room was not musty smelling, as others have commented. The beds were super comfortable, the room was clean and the bathroom was thoughtfully appointed. Liked the shower with both a rainshower option or handheld nozzle. The only bummer in the bathroom is that the toilet is in this tiny little closet, so it was a bit claustrophobic! The main pool was great - excellent service from Octavio and the rest of the pool staff. We met some awesome folks from all over the world, which always makes the trips more fun. We actually spent most of our time in the pool, and never had to wait long for drink service, which was not watered down, as some others have suggested. We at the pool bar one day, and had room service another. The room service did take quite a long time, but it was quality food. The preferred club was a nice touch - definitely worth the extra cost. There was top end liquor and quality snacks at all times of the day. Our only disappointment is that we didn't stay longer! We will absolutely be back next time in Puerto Vallarta!!

We recently stayed at this resort for 5 nights. The food was good at times, but only in the restaurants. Room service was awful. Pools and serving staff at all restaurants were exemplary. Couldn't have been better! We reserved a "preferred room", which is advertised as much nicer than it is. It smelled musty, and we had to change our own dehumidifier. That means at 6am every morning, the dehumidifier was beep and we would have to change it or our room would become humid and smell even worse. Housekeeping was inconsistent and lackluster at best.

The staff at this resort provides excellent service. A big drawback was that men are required to wear long pants to dinner at most restaurants on the resort!! The heat and humidity here this time of year is extreme. They need to take in consideration the comfort of there guests. The food is just okay and the drinks are contain very little alcohol. In addition we were question many times when leaving the resort where we were going by the tour company stationed near the exit. This resort in know way deserves five stars
