Rhythms of the Night! view from our room Sunset from our swim out. Empty beach, no loungers or Palaps this bathroom is so beautiful I hate my house when I go home. Best vacation ever!! Sometimes, in Mexico, they build food stands to feed you delicious tacos by the pool. And then, *poof* they disappear. View from preferred club balcony! Sunset view from the lobby! Pool area with tables set up for Private Function lobby Devils Canyon

This was our honeymoon. It was a very clean resort. We made good friends. It seemed small. They didn't notify us that there was going to be construction going on (loud). We didn't know that we would be sharing the resort with Now which is their partner resort that allows children. It was separated a little but shared the night club and some good restaurants. There is so much to do in Puerto Vallarta, that next time we go we won't stay in an all-inclusive because we want to spend more of our money to do more excursions. The spa at this location though was incredible!

Not exactly adults only

My husband and I plan vacations to get away. From stress, from drama, from KIDS. We always pay the little bit extra for an adult only resort, which is why we chose this one. While this resort states it's adult only, they are only half right. When you see the picture of the resort, 1/2 of it is adult only, but what they fail to mention is that the other 1/2 pictured is for families. So, while kids aren't allowed on our side of the resort, you can still hear and see children from your balcony, at the pools and at the beach. And several of the restaurants are on the family side of the resort, so you have to walk through screaming children to get there. It was a very nice resort, but not the "adult only" atmosphere that we were looking for. We felt a little fooled by the website.

Beautiful resort, friendly staff, need better food

This resort was beautiful. As soon as we came in we we're greeted with champagne and a strawberry margarita while checking in. The staff was so friendly and did everything in their power to make sure you were comfortable with your stay. Maid service was three times a day and they would refill your mini bar , chips and M and M snacks, and give fresh clean towels and make your bed. There was a schedule provided everyday with a list of activities taking place that you could participate in. Our jacuzzi outside our room was a wonderful way to unwind later in the day and hear the beach. We stayed in the preferred side of the resort and we reccomend it. We did three excursions the city tour which was awesome , the dolphin swim that was amazing , and the pirate ship tour buccaneers which I did not care much for as I got very sea sick. The spa is beautiful and the service was wonderful I got a couples massage, a facial and foot reflexology. Now the food .. this is the only part we did not care for. You expect the food to be amazing Mexican food in Mexico but it was not authentic at all very Americanized almost Taco Bell like. None of the food stood out to us only the Asian restaurant oddly enough. I would give the food a 2.5 out of 5 as the quality and selection could be better. Overall we had an amazing time if they could fix the food situation we would go back! As far as what you get for the price we highly reccomend! Have fun friends!

Relaxing and fun

I read LOTS of reviews before deciding on Secrets. There will always be extremes to both sides..good and bad in reviews. Our trip was just for me and my husband....relaxing and romantic! Secrets was a great place for that! Tips: Take an outlet adapter if you blow dry and straighten/curl your hair. There is only one outlet in the bathroom. Bugs weren't bad but they were there...take After Bite if the mosquitos like you! Some people brought their own insulated mugs/cups...they are allowed and will be filled. Massages on the beach are $35 .....right outside the gate at the entrance they are $25 for 75 minute massage. There are several shops within the resort but the Convenience Shop has the best prices and you can charge to your room. The other ones you pay there...are 2-3x higher and don't negotiate on price. Yes....beach vendors are very visible but they are not pushy or aggressive...a simple No if you're not interested. No....the beach is not pretty or swimmer friendly. LOTS of rocks! Yes/No....music around the pool is not constant...varies on the time and the day....some people brought their own Yes... the people in the airport are pushy and aggressive! Get outside to find a cab or your transfer. They WILL NOT BE ANY OF THEM IN THE AIRPORT! Yes...the resort will push to offer you coupons for your time. If you want to know about time shares then agre. If not, politely but firmly say no thank you. IF you are offered an upgrade for a room and you can afford the negotiated rate....go for it! We stayed in a Master Suite for a very reduced price....SO WORTH IT! An amazing room that was Oceanside! We stayed 7 nights....the first half of the trip no one saved lounge chairs or spots at the pool. The second half...people were "reserving" them by 7am. However...security watches....if no one shows up for an hour or so they will remove their towels. IF you are one who thinks you want to get the best chair but not use it for a couple hours....your stuff will be moved! Favorite restaurant... Boudreaux! Favorite drink....Blue Hawaiian with vodka

What's to Love

A happy staff person greets you with sparkling champagne and chilled towels - you've landed in paradise.

The resort itself is an architectural feat - there's something chic and stylish around every corner.

Ample suites with private terraces or balconies that have soul-stirring views of Banderas Bay.

It's a delicious, oceanfront AAA Four Diamond resort. Swoon.

The Junior Suite is swim-out for access to instant Awesome.

Secret box for private room service delivery - you don't ever have to see a human if you don't want to.

Spa is off-the-charts fab with hydrotherapy, indigenous treatments and the invigorating acupressure shower.

You can steal away to the spa's relaxation lounge and soak in all the calm - food for body and soul.

Dining beneath a palapa at the Oceana (delish seafood), soaking in the epic ocean view and purr of the surf.

The magnificent infinity pool with swim-up bar (service is fast!) and outside Jacuzzi.

The refreshing, berryliscious strawberry margaritas (can you taste them?) from the Sugar Reef Bar.

On land: dance classes and Euro-bungee and for a fee, horseback riding.

On/in the water: water polo, boogie boarding, ocean trampoline, inflatable iceberg and more.

For a fee: scuba and jet skiing and movies on the beach projected on a giant screen - too fun.

 

What We'd Change

On-site dining is tasty, but options can feel limited without the local flair of a Mexican-themed restaurant. Of course, since the resort is near the boardwalk you still have plenty of access to the local cuisine.

 

Why You Should Go

Just 15 minutes (4 miles) from the airport - a short drive to you being Beach Happy.

It's a short hop to El Malecon, a mile-long boardwalk full of shopping, restaurants and bars.

Playa Quimixto, an isolated beach you can only get to by boat, is perfect for some privacy, peace and quiet.

Bucerias, a laid back town just north of PV, is also good for escaping the clamor of crowds.

Upgrade to the Preferred Club, get better rooms, afternoon hot and cold hors d'oeuvres and more.

The rooms in Preferred Club Tower have balcony Jacuzzi and Jacuzzi bath tub. Not too shabby.

You can get a complimentary round at Vista Vallarta Club de Golf or Marina Vallarta Golf Club.

There are medical facilities - always good to know.

Lots of "fish" opps that include whale watching and deep-sea fishing from Marina Vallarta (or you can just marvel at the huge yachts).

Secrets Vallarta Bay PV is Rainforest Alliance Certified. Big kudos.

Please drink bottled water when not on hotel property. You don't want the ills that NOT doing this can cause.

Roosters start crowing at 4 a.m. next door. Bring your earplugs.
