Short but sweet, the service is outstanding a special shout out to our buddy Manuel Bugarel. He treated us so well and went above and beyond our expectations! We will miss seeing him everyday. All the other servers were great as well. The a la carte restaurants were awesome. We didn't get a chance to try the French but the...

Stayed at sister hotel next door on the past three visits and decided to stay at the Secrets side this time. Was a little disappointed that upon check in we were not offered a glass of champaine or cool towel. We had to remind the front desk staff.. Housekeeping was a little inconsistent. We also had a swim out room...

Booked through Apple Vacations and very glad we did. They made the entire trip very enjoyable! The resort itself is beautiful and is actually two resorts in one. Secrets is adults only and where we stayed. Now Amber is the Family side of the same resort. We had access to both sides of the resort including restaurants and entertainment but...

Another fantastic visit to Secrets! This was our second visit to this hotel, and it was as fantastic as our first. Great service, fantastic restaurants and a wonderful hotel. Special mention to the Bordeaux restsurant for its excellent food (we like to eat good food, Michelin starred places included), and the service from Hugo and Luis Govea was exemplary. Also,...

A really good hotel with just a few negatives. After an 11hr flight I was disappointed to have a 45mins wait to check in (only one staff) but the room was excellent. The decking replacement work at the beach was noisy but should be completed by now. The food at all the restaurants was good, the best being the French...

Overall great stay. Positives - great food, ala cart restaurants, shows, rooms, lobby bar and volleyball court. Negatives: Floor 3 and 4 need glass doors to keep sound out of hallway from lobby and elevator area that are quite loud at times. Buffet was very good but limited selection for a 5 star. Advertised free use of Hobie Cat sailboat,...

My husband and two friends returned to Secrets Vallarta Bay in November 2016. It was our 4th visit and our friends 2nd. Once again, Secrets did not disappoint! Easy check in and a perfect room. Cesar Vega had put a note on our file indicating our anniversary and we were welcomed into our room with a banner and a chilled...
