    A wonderful experience!

    We stayed at Secrets Vallarta Bay in mid January 2020. This was our second visit to Secrets Puerto Vallarta. The resort is located a very short drive from the airport. We stayed in an Oceanview preferred club room. . The resort is about a 20 minute very enjoyable and safe walk right to the downtown and Malecon in Puerto Vallarta. There is also a new shopping center that was also about a 20 minute walk in the opposite direction. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at this resort! We ate at all of the property restaurants and enjoyed all of them thoroughly. We especially enjoyed the food at lunch. There was quite a variety with the chefs even recreating some of the street food – we loved the shrimp on a stick! One evening we had a Mexican coffee. All I can say is just get it. Enjoy the drink but enjoy the fire show to create it even more! We feel compelled to mention the staff in the review and we do so because it almost felt like family. Fernanda Trejo was our concierge at the preferred club. She would take the time to help my wife with her Spanish and even hugged her on our last day. Benny was the out-of-this-world bartender in the preferred club. If you want something, just ask Benny – he knows everything. Raul was our breakfast waiter at the Market Café. He gave us suggestions on what to get every day. I might add great ones. On our last day he had special platter made wishing us a happy return. When you are seated for breakfast make sure you are in Raul’s section. Finally, Aldo was a jack of all trades and master of all of them. He conducted an excellent fitness class, was a superb teacher in the Spanish class and went over and above our expectations during the beach walk. Would we come back? The obvious answer is most definitely.

    Nice adult only resort

    Loved the fact it was adult only. Honestly can't stand kids running around being noisy and such. Food was good, drinks were good and the staff was good. Nothing amazing but just a solid good. The biggest drawback was the pool. The pool had a very rough stucco like finish to it. You had to be super careful or you'd snag your swimsuits on it. So that really sucked. Even the built in loungers and the bar stools were like this. I've got to wonder what idiot thought this was a good idea. Smooth it out and put in tile so people don't ruin their swimsuits. The smokers really sucked around the pool. I really wish they'd outlaw smoking around the pool. First it's a disgusting habit and we don't "enjoy" being around your second hand smoke. We had to move a few times due to this. Casa Velas right there in Puerto Vallarta as designated smoking areas around their pool that are downwind so their smoke won't stay in the pool area and they also strictly enforce their smoking policy.

    Perfect Vacation!

    We booked the preferred junior suite ocean view room on the 8th floor. From the time of our arrival where we were met with champagne to our departure, we received exemplary service from the staff. Everyone was eager to assist with whatever we wanted or needed. We loved the food selections at the various restaurants, though we were turned away at the Asian restaurant allegedly due to our not having a reservation. The restaurant was practically empty on this particular day due to many people leaving as a result of the virus scare. This was disappointing, but we didn’t let this mar our experience. We especially loved the various pools, swim up bar, and the beach being nearby. We actually spent a day in a beachside cabana. It was so relaxing we didn’t want to leave. We had a spa day where we received the best massages ever. This experience was phenomenal. We also caught up on much-needed rest in our beautiful room and at night we ventured out for drinks and musical entertainment. My niece had her wedding here during this time. It was so romantic and beautifully orchestrated. Again, the staff was highly attentive and went above and beyond to make sure this was a wonderful experience for all. Also, the hors d’oeuvres and food were fantastic! My husband and I also celebrated our 40TH wedding anniversary. The staff made sure it was special. This was one of our most favorite vacations. We had such a wonderful experience we are so looking forward to returning.
