I work in the travel industry and have been lucky to be able to visit places like this as apart of work. I stayed last year and loved it . So this year for my birthday I decided I wanted to stay for fun. I had a great time. It was Mexican independence while I was there so we were...

Been to other AM Resorts but so far Secrets Vallarta Bay is our fave. Great staff! Kudos to our favorite waiter at the Market Cafe "Humberto" aka Señor Banderas. Excellent customer service! Same with Anahi, at Market Cafe- very warm. Food choices were excellent, quality was great. Best grilled steaks and shrimps!! Fruits, salads, and vegetables galore! Fabulous desserts too....

My wife and I honeymooned at Secrets for 8 days and it was an amazing resort!! We upgraded our room to ocean front suite with a huge deck with Jacuzzi tub in the Preferred Club.

I cannot say enough good things about this resort. First off, the proximity to the airport already makes it a great place to say. The quick drive is great, since the last thing anyone wants to do is take two planes, and a 30+ minute car drive. All anyone wants when they land is the beach. And we didn’t have...

I hope this review is informative, dense with helpful information, and not full of lengthy sob stories of anything that went wrong so you don’t spend much time reading. **The BEST all-inclusive I have ever been to after 5 places. I can be hard to please. ** Worst part was actually some of the guests! Not the fault of Secrets!...

Gorgeous hotel and nice to have the option of going to restaurants next door at Now Amber. No reservations, no wristbands and nightly entertainment were a plus. The Preferred Club is great and so worth it to upgrade to it and Luis and Nirvana were so friendly always opening the door for us. We were greeted with a rose petal...
