My husband and I celebrated my birthday and our anniversary while there at Secrets. We could not have had a more WONDERFUL vacation! We were pampered the entire time. Management and staff were courteous, efficient & responsive to our every need plus more! We ate at many of the restaurants and the food was excellent. Waiters, beach and pool service were exceptional. A big shout out to Ihor & Lisette (UVC), Miriam & Judith (representatives), Heriberto & Emilio (Bordeaux), Ansel (Tamarindo), Rodalfo (Carnival), Maria (our maid), Roberto (valet, transportation). Sooo ready to return! Thank you!! Ed & Judy Hernandez Liberty, NC

I’ve used TripAdvisor extensively and find it extremely helpful, but have never felt strongly enough about a resort to write my own review, until now. From the pleasantly breezy open air lobby with incredible views of the ocean and mountains, to the lush landscape of flowers, palm trees and intimate lighting at night – this resort is stunning. Of all the Secrets I have visited, it wins hands down in visual appeal. The sunsets daily from the lobby are not to be missed. Grab a cocktail from the bar and enjoy Mother Nature’s wonder. Rooms: All of the rooms have a view of the ocean (unless on lower floor or swim-out) and are spacious, clean and have plenty of storage. The views from the balcony are incredible, and loved enjoying our coffee there in the morning. We stayed in the Preferred Club and the main benefit of that in my opinion is access to the preferred bar and premier service from BENNY, the wonderful bartender. Everyone is his “familia” and he is always smiling and mixing up his “Benny Especial” beverages. Most notable is “Benny’s Special Coffee,” a delicious treat to start your day. GONZALO from the preferred club front desk went out of his way to answer all questions and address any concerns. He secured our reservations at the Teppanyaki (wonderful dinner at Himitsu), and even drew my sister a map directing us to a great taco stand right outside the resort. Restaurants: Market Café for breakfast has more than you could ever want; made to order omelets, sesame seed bagels, and the bacon – OMG. Best. Bacon. Ever. If you get a chance to sit in DANIEL’S section, you won’t be disappointed. Very kind man and great service with a smile. Our favorite restaurant was Capers (Italian). Incredible experience made completely because of CHEF PAOLO. He visits each table to chat and is such an asset to the resort. He can be found clearing tables, bringing out cocktails, and making recommendations. There is no job too big or little for him. The shrimp risotto is to die for, as was the semifreddo dessert – honestly one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. We were also lucky enough to experience the Chef’s Table for dinner with EXECUTIVE CHEF NEFI. HUGO was our waiter that evening – attentive service and we were treated to a few songs from his beautiful operatic voice. We did eat off resort one night and took a very short (and cheap) taxi ride to the Malecón. I highly recommend this – the Malecón is something special. Pools / Beach: The ocean is a bit rough; beautiful to look at and listen to, but not the best for swimming. The beauty of the ocean and mountain landscape far made up for not being able to swim in it. We were there during whale season, and it was such a treasured experience to hear the bell ring on the beach to alert of a whale sighting. Being able to see those magnificent creatures right from the beach is something I’ll never forget. There are three pools; one with a swim-up bar (only one heated), another where most activities happen such as water aerobics and volleyball, and lastly a very shallow wading type pool with built in beds. Even with the resort at max capacity, it still seemed like there was plenty of room for everyone. We rented one of the new double decker cabanas one day - very cool and wished we had it reserved all week! Please make sure to meet NOEH and LUIGI while lounging at the pool/beach. They are some of the best people you will encounter, and are invaluable members of the Secrets staff. My impression of the resort would not have been the same without these wonderful people. They go out of their way to make you feel special and remember little details you tell them throughout the week. I will be a return guest to this resort because of them and the other wonderful staff members mentioned. And don’t forget to take them up on cleaning your sunglasses! It is added touches like this that sets Secrets Vallarta Bay apart from others resorts. If I HAD to give any constructive feedback, it would mainly be the mixed drinks served at the pool bar. They did seem to taste quite watered down with not much distinguishing flavor from one to the next. Maybe I just wasn't ordering the right thing.I just stuck to champagne/prosecco which was very tasty – so I can’t complain too much! There didn’t seem to be any cocktail menus at the lobby bars, which was kind of disappointing. It would be nice to be able to read a list to get some inspiration – again just a very minor nit-pick. One last thing, be very careful when walking around the pool areas. The pavement gets quite slippery. In closing, (if you’re still reading this very long review, lol) after a vacation at an All-Inclusive resort, I’ve typically had a great time but am ready to go home. Not this time – I was so sad on our last day to be leaving and didn’t want it to end. Puerto Vallarta, and Secrets Vallarta Bay have definitely stolen my heart! Can't wait to return!

Wonderful staff and grounds but far too noisy

Stayed here for two weeks with my family at the end of February. While there were good things, the hotel was badly let down by the painfully loud music that took place every single night in both the secrets and the now bar. It was impossible to find anywhere for the five of us to sit, drink and talk. We did complain, but it didn't help, and sometimes the music continued long enough into the night to stop us sleeping. Because of this, it is impossible to say that this is a luxury hotel but instead more suitable for a stag do for fifty year olds. For the same reasons, I would never come back to this hotel, and would actively recommend to those I know not to visit. It has also caused me to think twice about ever staying at a secrets resort again, so I really would suggest that the management consider changing this, as you can see from the other reviews that we weren't the only ones who it bothered. I would have liked to give the hotel a higher score, as the rooms were incredible, and the staff were lovely. Everyone was incredibly helpful and welcoming, particularly thanks to Carlos at the bar, Alberto and Manuel by the pool and Cezar in the buffet. At this time of year, whales could be spotted a couple of times a day and they always let you know by ringing a bell. The food was good, with the buffet and the Italian both standing out as very good, as was the guacamole at the barefoot grill by the pool. The special dinner at the market cafe was also fantastic (though perhaps it would be better if it only closed the secrets buffet every other night) with excellent food, great service and wonderful music. Perhaps the saxophonist who played there should be booked to play for a few nights in the main lobby bar, as that would be a great improvement on the endless deafening 80s pop music.

This place is a great resort. From food, service and comfort which was excellent, plan on returning. Places to eat can please anyone's appetite. Very clean and well kept. Service at the bars were excellent along with beverage choices.

The hotel and staff were amazing. The food and drinks were delicious and the weather was beautiful. As a group, we couldn't find anything negative other than the fire alarm went off during the middle of the night on a couple of occasions. From what we gathered, some guests had pulled the alarm as a joke. Other than that, our stay was wonderful. Brian, Noel, Miguel, and Saul were some of the staff that made a great impression on us and went above and beyond to ensure the guests were satisfied. We will definitely be back.
