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

Excellent experience

From arrival to departure, the experience was top notch. we had preferred club ocean view junior suites and the views were spectacular. the pools are very nice and beaches are nicely appointed. the wait staff at the beaches and pools are very attentive and make the day very enjoyable through conversation and attentiveness. Omar is quite the character and and excellent employee. All of the restaurants have great food. there are only two negatives we saw. 1. the nightly entertainment is poor quality and very amateur. 2. even if you get up at 6 AM, the majority of lounge chairs already have towels saving them and people do not show up for hours later to sit if ever. this should be monitored more closely and the towels removed after say 30-45 minutes of no activity. Otherwise, we would highly recommend this resort. The rooms are very clean and preferred club staff is excellent.

Best trip Ever!

We wanted a romantic week long getaway, and that's exactly what we got. Puerto Vallarta was gorgeous! Secrets staff too care if our every need and desire. Our room was a great size, so comfortable, and private despite how large the resort is. Everything is laid out in the resort beautifully, we didn't have to walk too far for anything in the resort. It looks huge, but it's all very convenient. We upgrades to the private tower, totally worth it!

This is a wonderful resort! My husband and I would definitely go back. The reason I put 4 for the beach- it was beautiful and amazing but not easy to swim in - it was very rough when we were there. We were able to go out in a kayak one day and whale watching another. Great for walking and dipping in your feet. The people are so accommodating and nice at Secrets! I just love it there! The Secrets resort is connected to their family resort, Now. You can eat at their restaurants too if you like. It is very close to town/ the boardwalk - about a 5 min cab ride. And close to the airport too. The weather was perfect!! We were there mid- January.

Not Really an Adult Only

I've used Cheap Caribbean numerous times and found the reviews helpful. For this location I wish it was spelled out better. It's not really an adult only. Also, Secrets are all individually owned and managed...!! My girlfriend and I booked a stay at your Secrets at Puerto Vallarta from Sunday November 26th to December 1st. I am normally not a complainer and can let most things go, but when you spend over $3,000 on a vacation, one doesn’t expect a few things including have to look at a junk yard from the entrance of their room numerous times a day. (see photos). We had to ask for a dehumidifier and empty t numerous times a day. While the weather, the grounds and the staff at the restaurants and pools were outstanding, the attempts of upselling, especially right after check-in, put such a bad flavor to the vacation, it took a days to unwind. Most people do not go to a resort to be approached numerous times a day to be upsold, we go to relax. How they can claim this to be an adult resort? All the entertainment was in the “Sister” resort (family) next door, a majority of the restaurants as well, even some of the daily events were at the sister property. One night having dinner, a child at the next table drops and breaks a plate. Earlier in the day my girlfriend had to go the “sister” resort for water aerobics because they weren’t being held at the Secrets and she hears a child come out yelling that her brother peed in the pool. People go to an adult resort to get away from that! Also, the activities were posted at 10 am. How can you even plan a day when nothing is accurate including the flyer in your door the evening before? My girlfriend and I take numerous vacations a year and this was the first time we tried a Secrets resort. If this is typical, it will be our last at a Secrets. So while some things were 5 stars, others were 1. A disappointed customer,

view from room entrance view from room entrance... how romantic!

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.
