My friend and I spent a week at the secrets and it was amazing... the staff are very helpful and can't do enuf for you.... the entertainement " claudia" was " Super Sexy" and soo much fun The debit machine was down and apparently had been down for a couple of weeks prior...I went to the conciser and asked about the bank machine I found him to be rude and not helpful, besides that all the servers and cleaning people were amazing

It just keeps getting better.

Thanks to all the staff, the cleaners, maids, pastry chefs, chefs, dishwashers, entertainment staff, parks department, those who straightened the pool chairs every night, the towel roller so we could have clean towels each morning around the pool, for all doing their best to provide everyone with a wonderful vacation.

The hotel is short ride from the airport and a 30 min walk into town so a good location if you want a balance between pool/beach and being able to explore the delights of Puerto Vallarta. The hotel itself is geared towards North American clients and arriving the day after thanksgiving made us question if we had made the correct choice of hotel. It was like walking into a senior version of spring break with the focus very much on drink resulting in noise that meant it was near on impossible to relax. Some visitors were then replaced by a conference which were equally intrusive and thought they had the run of the hotel and should be served before the rest of us paying guests. Restricting access to parts of the grounds during such events whilst frustrating was manageable and did not distract from the trip. The room was well equipped and regularly serviced throughout the trip. The humidity can be an issue making the rooms smell damp but the presence of a dehumidifier in the room (plus Bounce Sheets that we took following the advice of another reviewer) did the trick and the smell went after a couple of hours. The bed was big and comfortable so sleep was not a problem. We found the restaurants a bit hit and miss with the food average on most occasions, the exception being the Asian restaurant at the Now Amber. The food was edible just not inspiring and exciting which is shame if you want to stay in the resort rather than go outside to eat. The biggest frustration with Secrets is the random dress code for using the restaurants and the inconsistent enforcement. Men are certainly the loser with long trousers and dress shoes required most evenings despite the heat and being on holiday. Female guests have more flexibility and seemed to be able to wear what they liked and shorts and flip flops were not challenged. Tank tops are acceptable for women at breakfast but not men. It all felt inconsistent and in a more relaxed world totally over the top. Entertainment from pool games to bracelet making was arranged throughout the day by a dedicated and hardworking entertainments team. There was no pressure to participate but they always had a smile on their face and time to say hello. The evening entertainment was mediocre and was focused in the bar in Secrets. Further entertainment could be found in the Now hotel and was perfectly watchable with the acrobatics team being particularly good, however the band/singers were somewhat average. The staff make this hotel and work extremely hard to make your day. At times they were stretched with it being busy but as the hotel became quieter they came into their own. Always happy to serve and not always looking for tips and when the opportunity came to interact with us they took it. Overall we had a good trip but would probably look at a different resort on our next visit.

Travelled December 2016, loved the setting of this Hotel within the resort of Puerto Vallarta. As always with Secrets Hotels, exceptional Service, excellent Food and superior Accommodation, although there was a slight smell throughout our stay of damp in our room, we didn't let this put us off. We will definitely return to this Hotel in the future.
