This review is a little late, having stayed at the resort in October last year. We carried out a lot of research on our trip to PV and decided on Secrets PV based on the numerous excellent reviews. We flew with Thomson's on the Dreamliner which was a great experience (apart from the air hostess saturating my phone in rum!).... More

This staff make the place superb, they are all very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are very spacious and of a good standard. The pools are lovely and warm with plenty of choice. We preferred to swim up bar which was very relaxing and comfortable. The restaurants all served good quality food. My favourite was the... More

My husband & I planned a 4 night stay in Puerto Vallarta, other than cruise stops he had never visited PV & it has been over 20 years for me. We chose Secrets because we've stayed at the Secrets in Cabo twice and loved it. This location did not disappoint. Fabulous service throughout from the check-in staff, the bar staff,... More

This was our (my wife and I) first experience with an all inclusive resort. We spent a great deal of time researching and talking to friends about the best place for our vacation and chose the Puerto Vallarta Secrets. We wanted a resort without kids, since we had left ours at home with the grandparents. We were also looking forward... More

Secrets Vallarta Bay was exceptional as most reviewers have expressed. I often prefer a tranquil, isolated location, but this time I liked being able to walk around nearby and explore the city (while also having access to a pleasant beach). The Malecon was a nice outing away from the resort, but upon returning, it was great to be "home" as... More

3 siblings with our wives and husband just returned tonight from Secrets Vallarta Bay. This resort is a jewel. The food quality and service is a strong ranking above typical cruise fare as well as other adult resorts we have stayed in in Mexico and in the Caribbean. The ocean view junior suites are spacious, well equipped, and have incredibly... More
