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

Booked a trip for our 15th Anniversary and could not have picked a better place to spend it.

My partner and I stayed at the hotel recently June 25-July 2 and we loved pretty much everything about the hotel. We stayed in a preferred club room with a tropical pool view.

This was easily one of the best all-inclusive resorts I have ever been to. The only negative thing about it is that the beach is pretty rocky, but that has more to do with the area than the resort itself. The WiFi was actually pretty strong throughout the resort, and not just in one specific area like many others. Rooms:... More

I'll start with the negatives and get them out of the way. Dress code - I understand that for some restaurants a dress code is needed but when you're in a place that hot, I dont want to have to wear long pants to eat. I have smart shorts which should have been fine. It was also barely air conditioned... More
