Great Week Get-Away

We visited June 30th to July 7th. This was the latest of many stays at Secrets just within the last couple years and like the other visits, this one was also great from start to finish. In case it isn’t clear, Secrets and Now Amber are located on the same property. Secrets is the Adults-Only side of the complex and Now Amber the family side. (and yes, they do watch to see that people don’t cross over without a proper additionally purchased day-pass and very nicely point out that Secrets is adults only.) Front Desk - Guest Services Manager Fernanda remembered us from previous visits and treated us like family returning home. She is always extremely professional yet very friendly – a tough balance to achieve which she does perfectly. Fernanda would always politely inquire how things were going and reminding us to let her know if we needed anything whenever our paths crossed. Our check-in was quick and efficient and before we knew it we were in the room with our bags being delivered. Room - Rooms have very comfy bed and are open concept with only the toilet itself behind a solid door. Everything else - shower stall (with frosted glass sides), sinks, vanities and tub were integrated into the bedroom / living area. They use sheer curtains for a degree of separation (romance?). The lighting could have an additional higher setting for doing make-up and putting in contacts but was still more than adequate overall. Air conditioning and ceiling fan were great and worked perfectly to keep cool. Housekeeping was always early in the day and impeccable. TV selection is pretty good compared to some other resorts. The only real complaint in the room is with regard to clothes storage. They do have a chest of drawers which is mostly fine for 2 people sharing, but there is no actual built-in closet. Instead they have a tall, free-standing wardrobe which does not have anywhere near enough space to hang dresses and shirts for 2 people for a week, let alone 2 weeks. This coupled with a huge holder for the iron in the same area, makes the hanging bar far too small for the purpose. We would strongly encourage them to revisit this area of the room as laying nice clothes across furniture and from drapes. does not suit the image they are trying to project. Staff – Without doubt, THE single best part of the trip every time. Without question all staff are amazing and very hard-working no matter the position. We would like to mention a few of them now not only for management recognition, but also so that readers can make sure to try to take advantage of the service these people provide (we apologize for any spelling errors and to anyone we unintentionally forgot): Pool Area– First and foremost, Pool Manager Carlos Diaz. His life is dedicated to the customers. Not a single thing escapes his attention - from the food, to the service, presentation, cleanliness – nothing. And he is the first one to jump in and do whatever needs to be done if any of staff are occupied. He is an amazing professional with one speed - fast! We are lucky to be able to call him friend after our visits. Wonderful servers in the pool area that we thank for their help are –Fernando, Issrael, Rodriguez, Junior and Omar at the bar. Pool Concierges Jamie and Claudia were very helpful and always ready to laugh. Entertainment Crew member Canello was a lot of fun every day. A special recognition to Ricardo around the pool. This gentleman was absolutely amazing at constantly mopping, cleaning and generally making sure the areas always looked like a 5 star resort! Restaurants / Bars – Oceana, Bordeaux, and Himitsu were our favourites restaurants along with the Market Café breakfast buffet. All of our meals were amazing. The lobby bar views can’t be beat but when the sun is out it can be too hot to enjoy the views. Main buffet restaurant staff – All were a great way to start the day. Servers Antonio, Raul, Jose and the rest of the staff were professional, friendly and funny. Egg station server Iris, was always ready with a smile and perfect omelette. F&B assistant Moncerrath was ready to help in any way. Lobby bar – servers Rosa, Adrianna and bartenders Eduardo and Jesus in the Rendezvous Lobby Bar were always there each night with our favourite drinks and smiles as soon as we sat down. Bordeaux – Server Martin was perfectly suited to this restaurant required guests to get dressed up and had a definite air of class not found in the other environments. Oceana – servers Gilberto and Gerrardo great job as on other visits to this venue. Food & Beverage Assistant Manager Bladimere was also on top of everything at all venues. In a different area, someone else that may not get recognized as much as they should - Emilio on beach security. This gentleman would help with any guest request asked of him including towels, umbrellas and chairs even though each guest was more than capable of doing it themselves. He was great fun to talk to for a few minutes each morning before the resort got too active. Finally we thank all of the countless other staff from all departments who would smile and say hello anytime we passed. We conclude all of our reviews the same way.... Be polite. The person serving your drinks or food in Mexico is just as deserving of respect as anyone in your family. There is no need to be rude or obnoxious to those trying to help. And of course - TIP!! As is usually the case at these resorts, the bartenders and servers worked their butts off to get food and drinks for guests - some working directly in the blazing sun all day long. If you can afford to go to an all-inclusive resort, you can certainly afford to tip these amazing people.

Tennis Lessons!

My husband and I took our first vacation together in years and he has always wanted me to try out tennis. Never played. Never really held a racket. Salvatore is the on-site tennis pro and he took his time with me during 2- 1 hour sessions. The price was much lower than in the US and the service was exceptional. I wish I could bring Salvatore home to teach me more!!!! #forevergrateful #foundanewsport #thanksSalvatore!

So Great, and ALMOST Perfect

My wife and I just got back a few days ago. We spent 8 nights at Secrets and it was by far our favorite all inclusive. We've been to two different Sandals resorts in Antigua and Jamaica (where we were married) and this blew them out of the water. We've all been to an H10 resort in Cancun that was a good value but wasn't in the vicinity. I'll break it down: The great: * The resort is new and beautiful * The rooms were the best we've seen, much better than the far more expensive Sandals, and the AC actually worked great * Food was great at the French restaurant, Italian Restaurant, and the Asian Restuarant. * They had great service all around, the breakfast buffet especially with Antonio, Alejandro, Joel, and Jose -- they even made us a special dish on our departure day. Thank you all so much, you guys made it special. * Service at the swim up bar was better than anywhere we've been. Edgar and Claudio were awesome and really helped us feel special. * The city of Puerto Vallarta was awesome. Great food, really safe, extremely beautiful and really excessible from the resort. It's my favorite city outside of Europe and the Mediteranian. The not great: * Really high pressure sales tactics from the moment you get there. Pushing you to take their excursions and go to their timeshare show. I'm sorry, but 200 dollars in credits isn't worth 2 to 3 hours of my vacations. * I also don't like the dishonest implication that Puerto isn't safe so we need to do everything for you. When I go to resorts, I like to put as much money back into the actual local economy. If you're American and from a big city Puerto is probably safer than where you live. * Again, sales everywhere. We had a "manager" come buy in the morning at breakfast asking where we wanted to eat every night. He'd make reservations in the "special" room where they expected us to spend more money without asking us in advance. The one night we didn't, they got upset at us. This actually made us spend fewer dollars at the resort. We were going to do the beach dinner, but decided not to. Again, a really great experience but they could improve by not being so pushy. Especailly after you've been travelling all day and just want to relax on you first night therer.

Wonderful Birthday Excursion!!

We went to Puerto Vallarta to celebrate my husband's birthday. #unlimitedvacationclub We're members and you can book multiple rooms for your guest. The price was phenomenal and the look of surprise on his face was priceless. Everyone at the resort was so helpful. There's an activity planned for every night. Tip your help, not to get them to do things, but because they are already so helpful. I want to say thanks to Catalina, Jamie, Panda, Victor and sooo many more.

Kendras 30th!

The staff went out of their way to make my daughter feel extra special on her 30th birthday! Antonio, Juan, the happy waiter and Jose sang her happy birthday and brought us champagne and rose martinis to celebrate! It was awesome! Thanks so much!
