Wonderful place to vacation
Thong P, Sauk Rapids, Minnesota
Mon Sep 24 15:17:47 EDT 2018
This was a vacation getaway for just me and my wife. The resort was amazing and the staff were super friendly and helpful. It was an amazing trip the only little gripes I have about the resort was if you are looking to swim in the ocean this is not the place. The beach shore was super rocky and painful to walk in but the view was still amazing. The other little con was the dress code for dining. Formal dining dress code was long pants and collared shirt. I brought a collared shirt but they said it did not count cause it was more of a sport shirt (Nike collared quarter zip) but allowed others in with jeans. I’m on vacation in a tropical place and the last thing I want to do is be formal so we missed out on two of the restaurants on the resort but overall still satisfied with our trip and would go back again but for that reason I gave it a 4 star instead of 5.

The Secret's staff is outstanding!! Our room was nice, but starting to show a little wear and tear. We did have a small bug problem, but the issue was taken care of very quickly. The resort has replaced their disco club with a casino. The casino is fun for a night or two, but would also have enjoyed a place to dance to top 40 music. Live entertainment was hit and miss for my husband and I. The Activities Team was great and worked hard to keep everyone involved. Finally, we appreciated the individualized attention we received from Catalina our UVC rep. She was amazing! If you're looking for a resort that is nice and a little more laid back, this is a great place to go!

Good relaxing holiday

Returned yesterday after two weeks with TUI so will review from a UK perspective as most reviews by others who only tend to stay four or five nights FIrst make sure you keep your receipt for your landing card as you will need on return as if you dont it will cost you 500.00 Peso a person to replace as I found to my cost. TUI reps not allowed in terminal building so once you have your luggage head straight outside to meet them and avoid all other people who will try and stop you. We payed for a private transfer but only a taxi of the rank and you could get one yourself for 120 Peso each way. So to the hotel, probably four star not five, only six years old, looks older in places. Not a place to come for a quite location as very lively all day and all night. And be aware TUI will only allow their guests to stay on fifth and sixth floors no higher. So given lobby and bars on third floor very noisy if you want to try and sleep before midnight. Often you can hear two different bands at the same time, one in Secrets and one in Now (which is bang next door). To be fair after a night or two did not worry us to much. Biggest issue is the humidity which is nearly 100%, and some evenings even at ten o clock was unbearable, some nights we had to take our drink to our room. And met several people who said the same. The trouble is the resort was built open plan which is lovely for the views but cannot be air conditioned. In fact apart from rooms and 24hour coffee shop not A C. We we told best time to visit is Nov to April when humidity a lot better. Buy gifts at local Walmart store as cheaper, a short taxi ride. On all tours even via TUI you have to get a taxi to the meeting point, about 100 Peso each way, coaches not allowed to go round picking up from hotels. All staff excellent and very helpful, food and drink fine and never had a problem getting a sunbed. But this was not a busy time of year so don’t know how it would be when full. Excellent idea with towels as well. Hotel gets busier at weekends as Mexicans tend to arrive Did not use beach but clean and sellers won’t cause you an issue at all if you don’t want to buy anything. Overall lovely holiday but having been to Caribbean last three years Mexico does not have the same sort of feel about it as the islands.

Amazing

The entire staff was amazing and very attentive. Everyone was very nice and pleasant. My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves. We were celebrating our anniversary and you guys made it very memorable for us. Thank you to the entire staff at Secrets Puerto Vallarta. We will be back.

Incredible all-inclusive experience

If “All-Inclusive” means that the staff makes the guests feel like long-lost friends who have reunited for fun times and good food, then Secrets Vallarta Bay will exceed your expectations. I have never felt so warmly welcomed by a resort and I cannot wait to return. To help give context to my review, please note that I traveled with my adult son and his fiancé. Please also note that this is an adults-only resort. Food The restaurants are plentiful, easy to get into for every mealtime and the food is outstanding! We had everything from surf & turf at Oceana, to escargot and duck at the French restaurant, to shrimp risotto and tiramisu at Capri (Italian restaurant) and finished the week with dinner at the Japanese restaurant where a chef cooked at our table. The buffet in the morning had something for everyone. At each restaurant, the food was fantastic and the service was even better. A quick shout out to Antonio and Oliver who made our breakfast each morning a delightful experience! And if you feel like staying in or wake up hungry, there is 24 hour room service available- all of these options with no surcharge. Activities The offered activities and entertainment also exceeded expectations. The Entertainment team was so much fun and high energy. All ages and activity level were encouraged to participate, without any uncomfortable pressure to do something you didn’t want to do. They made to activities fun and light-hearted for all participants. They even set up a nightclub experience for my adult-children so they could go clubbing in town one evening! Huge thank you to Alejandra and Noe from the Entertainment team - they both made our experiences delightful and personal. The evening entertainment shows were fun and the talent was impressive, especially for small cast-shows. We were genuinely entertained and glad we went. Non-motorized waterspouts were available all day and they always made sure we were safe and knew how to use the equipment. One morning my son and I took a standup paddle boarding lesson (my first time), then immediately did a SUP tour all the way to the Malecon and back! Accommodations My son & future daughter-in-law had a king bed jr suite ocean view (not premium) and I had the same but the premium club. Both rooms are beautifully appointed, large with big jetted tubs and decks. The premium room also had a jetted tub outside on the deck, which I’ll admit is as cool as it sounds. The big walk-in shower was perfect after a day at the beach. The rooms were so spacious that even when we were all hanging out in one room, it never felt crowded. Grounds The grounds are lovely and it is RIGHT on the beach which beach chairs ready for you to relax. The pools are all infinity-type pools and although they don’t offer the “lagoon” shapes, they’re spacious enough that lots of guests can use them without bumping into each other. The lounge pool gives a chance to relax and stay refreshed while sunbathing, where the swim-up bar pool is more active and offers entertainment (Crazy Games) while you paddle around with a drink in your hand. There is also excellent service at the beach and pool areas. Big thanks to Hugo who always made sure I had a cold Paloma in my hand, or waiting for me if I fell asleep in a beach chair. In a Nutshell, the team at Secrets took an outstanding facility and turned it into an incredible experience. Next time we will stay longer and, I have no doubt, come home with even more friends and memories. Because after a vacation like this one, there will definitely be a next time.
