April 12-17 amazing
ZDehn, Ramsey, Minnesota

Had the junior suite ocean view king bed room - double sinks, shower had 2 heads a rain head and a hand held one, and Jacuzzi tub. Our balcony was huge wow. Maid service was excellent only problem we had was our mini bar wasn't stock once but one of us accidently hit the do not disturb switch by the door on day. Oops ha The restaurants were all good our favorite was Himitsu the least favorite was Tamarindo as far as food goes. Not that it was bad by any means the other 2 fall somewhere between those. Breakfast was very good and our favorite waiter there was Caesar! Barefoot grill had good burgers and pizza. The entry way lobby/ bar was very very nice the seating the was under the over hang was beautiful and was nice to sit with a drink and enjoy the breeze. The waiters at the beach pool were on top of their game they only didn't come back with our drinks one time but I don't blame him it was really busy and he already took a couple orders before us. I just simply ordered some more from someone else when I thought he was coming back. Most the time the would come back when they noticed you needed a drink with one in their hand! and if you did need to order one plenty of them around. I have been to some resorts where they are scarce but not here! The fitness center was better than most places I have been too but it would be nice to have a squat rack and a bench press. The dumbbells only went to 50lbs They had a bench machine but I don't care for those. Otherwise everything was perfect! Wouldn't hesitate to come back

Great place to stay at. Food and variety was excellent. Employees were very kind and considerate to your needs.

1st Anniversary trip to Secrets Vallarta Bay Puerto Vallarta

Trip taken April 7th thru April 15th. My wife and I stayed at Secrets Vallarta Bay for our wedding anniversary. This trip was simply amazing. I honestly can't say enough about the hotel and all the amazing staff that took care of us. The room we stayed in was located in the preferred club. It was a master suite with a private pool and beach access. The room alone is just simply incredible. Not only was the room the greatest but the staff is top notch. There are a few staff member that I want to recognize for the commitment to excellence in their field of work. First and foremost I must recognize Chef Marco head chef for the chef's table and also head chef for Bordeaux the French Restaurant. Not only did he create the most amazing food experiences, but he went out of his way to ensure that we had an over the top anniversary experience during our anniversary romantic dinner. He went above and beyond be being our personal chef on the beach. I would also like to recognize our head butler Nirvana who always went out of her way any time what we needed something. At one point I tried to order something from room service and I got hung up on. She called room service and they checked their call list and our room didn't even show up. She promptly called phone maintenance and they arrived at our room and found that our phone was programed wrong. She was also able to get our private pool warmed up for us to be able to use. We really appreciate her and all that she has done for us. Adrian the head sommelier was an other that really went out of his way to ensure our great dinning experiences. He was happy to pair our meals with different wines and champagne. He was amazing with his talent. I highly suggest that everyone ask Adrian to pair a meal for you. Everyone at the hotel was amazing and we look forward to our return.

Secrets Vallarta Bay April 2018

We had a great vacation at Secrets Vallarta Bay (SVB) April 4 - 14 but I do need to qualify the 5 rating. A 5 rating would say it was perfect; however we all know the world is not perfect but we also feel a 4 rating is totally inadequate. We are Unlimited Vacation Club (UVC) members and were fortunate to receive our upgrade to a Preferred Club room (PC). Thank you so much to our UVC rep Andrea Iraburo for excellent service and hospitality! We actually enjoyed our time discussing our membership and are looking forward to coming back again! Our room was good but if you booking a PFC room just for higher end alcohol in PC lounge, all bars seemed to have good quality drinks in SVB. We did have a jacuzzi on the deck as well as a large tub, shower, double sinks, etc in the bathroom. Bed very comfortable with different pillow options available. I can't speak to how this compares to other room categories. Mini bar has a good variety of refreshments with lots of water. Also a Nespresso coffee machine. If short anything just ask; service was very quick on the couple occasions we had too! Pool and beach well maintained. People still do the "towel game" (we don't) despite management trying to discourage by taking things away if unused. If you get to down there at a reasonable hour, you should be able to find something. If not ask for an umbrella from pool staff but if you can have them track down Carlos Diaz, the Pool Manager that is better. He went over and above to ensure our stay was as awesome as possible...SALUD! Food was overall very good. Even the Market Buffet has a good variety and quality; waiter Caesar was our favorite but they were all good. My wife is gluten free (GF) so it is always somewhat of a challenge no matter where we travel; even in Canada (some of her worst experiences at home)! Ala-cart menus have symbology for GF, vegetarian, etc. However still be careful as some are not initially but can be made so (read fine print!). If in doubt ask and look at ingredient packages if necessary; even in some drinks e.g. Caesars: spice sauce they add contains wheat as well as some vodkas are distilled from wheat. If unsure ask and the chef can usually supply/modify something. A special shout out to Francisco, manager at Oceana and his waiter Francesco (not sure if spelling same or I have wrong or reversed) for the wonderful dinners at sunset on the upper deck! Especially the second one with new friends; it was fantastic setting, food, company and service! Finally just want to thank all staff and management! This one of the better run, maintained hotels we have stayed at. Thank you to PC staff Nirvana, Octavio, Claudia, Benny,Luis and Carlos! We walked into Old PV and the Malecon one morning and very much enjoyed it. The Cathedral is spectacular! Need to spend more time in that area. Know I have missed stuff either way but if you need something just ask; be polite, respectful and courteous and they will do their best to make it happen!

Our home away from home

We celebrated our first anniversary in this beautiful resort from April 7-15. Our third visit in a year. We love everything in this resort from the staff, spa, food, drinks and cleanliness. Secrets Vallarta Bay is our home away from home. Chef Marco, from Bordeaux French Restaurant/Chef's table is amazing! We had dinner at the Chef's Table and that's where we first met him. He prepared mouthwatering meals for us, from start to finish, it was so delicious we had to come back to Bordeaux the following night for another special dinner with him. We had a Romantic Sunset Dinner on the beach one night and we requested Chef Marco to cook for us. He again prepared a delectable dinner for us. The entire time, he was with us and made sure we enjoyed our dinner. Our last night in the resort, we decided to have another meal at Bordeaux, and Chef Marco took us around the world with our dinner experience, from Asia to Italy to France with his food preparation. Such a great honor, and we are humbled to know Chef Marco. He is brilliant, talented and creative with his food preparation and presentation. He made the best seafood and steak and risotto! His passion for cooking is amazing! Nirvana, our favorite staff in the resort. We stayed at the Preferred Club. Upon arrival to our suite Nirvana did an amazing job to welcome us back to the resort we considered our second home. She knew we are celebrating my husband's birthday and our first year wedding anniversary. My husband had a birthday card and birthday cake with champagne, she got me a bouquet of lavender (our wedding motif) lilies and a lovely card on the table, rose petals with our initials on our bed and my donut floatie in the living room for my convenience. She always checks on us to make sure everything is ok in our suite. She will make reservations for our special dinners. She will attend to our every need, anytime of the day. She is always eager to help and wears that beautiful big smile that makes us feel at home and special. We love Nirvana! Adrian, the head sommelier of Secrets and Now Amber is very good with wine pairing. Our dinner experience from Chef's Table, Bordeaux (French Restaurant) and Capers (Italian Restaurant) was amazing! Adrian will pair every meal from appetizers, soup, main course and desserts. He taught us how to appreciate the flavors of the food with each wine and champagne he brings to our table. His expertise made our dinners more special. He is brilliant! Hugo, head server of Bordeaux and Chef's Table is charming. Has the biggest smile and always helpful. He always makes sure your wine glass and water glass is filled. He makes sure you have fresh bread on your plate each time. He is always on top of everything. Lastly, Hugo has a beautiful voice, he can sing opera. We appreciate him singing for us during our Chef's Table experience. Mariana, adventure photos photographer is a doll! She is talented. She captures beautiful moments as seen on her photos. She was our wedding photographer last year and we appreciate her passion for photography! We are always pleased with each photos she takes. Laura, hostess at Bordeaux is adorable. Very polite and greets us always with her cute smile. Cesar, Fernando and Alonso in Market Cafe are the best in the buffet. Always smiling and fun! They all know during breakfast we love fresh guava juice and coffee, no need to ask because they will just bring it to our table. Moncerrath, hostess at Market Cafe is friendly and attentive, she remembers our name and will always direct us to Cesar's table. Raul, another server from the buffet is friendly and always willing to assist. Benny, preferred club bartender makes the best ABC coffee every morning! He always makes us a special drink each time we stop by and chat with him. Luis and Fabian, servers at Romantic Dinner on the beach are amazing! Always on top of everything. They make sure everything is well taken cared of as we enjoy our dinner and the beautiful sunset. They are both friendly, attentive and wears a big smile each time. Sandy, at the spa reservation is always helpful and very nice. She explains the various treatments and options available to enjoy during our stay. Linda, from the spa salon is a sweetheart. She did my hair and make up last year when we got married at the resort. This time, I personally requested for her and she eagerly stayed to do my hair and make up for our photoshoot. She did a great job! Yarel and Sandra are both awesome when we had our couples massage, these two can perform deep tissue massage very well. Chef Amhed, made us a special dinner at Capers one night. Every plate he prepared was delicious! Carlos, pool manager always checks on us and wanted to make sure our cooler is filled with drinks and ice and if we need anything while relaxing in our private pool. Manuel, the pool guy is always around to bring us drinks, chips and guacamole from the bar and to fill our cooler with ice. Octavio and Luis at the Preferred Club are always helpful and friendly. They always make sure we are enjoying our stay and everything is well. Antonio and Nestor, these two bellboys are always cheerful everytime we see them around the resort. Always smiling and never fails to greet us each time. The housekeepers did a fantastic job in making sure our suite is clean and tidy. The turn down service is always wonderful, our bed is ready after a long day of activities and we love the chocolates we get each time. The room service that stocks our bar and fridge always makes sure we have enough of everything for our convenience. Overall, we love the staff of Secrets Vallarta Bay. The staff will go out of their way to make your stay special and memorable. We love the service, the food and the drinks. It is our favorite all inclusive resort! We highly recommend this beautiful resort and we are definitely coming back again😊
