Family Vacation

Secrets Resort is very beautiful and clean. Our room was very comfortable and had an amazing view. The shower was big and wonderful. Majority of the staff was happy and accommodating. The entertainment staff at the pool were very Excelente! It was fun to have activities during the day at or around the pool. The pool waiters work very hard constantly walking around and making sure we were doing ok or if we needed anything. Junior was our waiters for most of the time and very hard working and always knew when it was time for another drink! We also had Fernando and Alberto and Carlos. They were all Excelente! I felt the waiters were the most hard working especially being in the hot/humid weather. These workers definitely deserve tips. Treat them well and they will treat you well! The Barefoot Grill workers at the pool were not the nicest. I felt bad they had to work in the humid weather and deal with people who have been drinking and were demanding. Then again it is customer service. I will have to say that the mixed drinks were not always strong. But just like the other reviews ask for a shot. When you are in the hot sun you don't need strong drinks all day long at the pool. Most of the food we had was really good. Unfortunately the sushi restaurant was not as good. The portions are small but that is good because you can always order more. For the most part the portions were perfect for me. Since it is an all inclusive you can always order more. I recommend watching the entertainment each night, some of it was better than other nights, however, these performers work very hard and was entertaining. In the evenings we would sit in the lobby watching the sunset with our drinks and eating the most delicious peanuts I have ever had which are the Japanese Peanuts. Goes great with beer! I went to the store and bought some to take home. Checking in and out was very easy. The time share staff were not pushy at all at the resort but they were at the airport. Just say no and they will leave you alone. One word of advice when arriving at the airport, do not speak to anyone until you breathe fresh air or else you might stuck on a time share tour. We used Grayline for our transportation and they were great! I recommend them. Vendors on the beach...they are nice people trying to earn a living. They do stand on the beach all day. They did not bother us at all. I did shop from the pool and when I was interested then they came up closer. Resort security was around to make sure the deal went smoothly and once the transaction was complete security made them move away from the resort. I do enjoy this is an adult only resort. It was great to meet a lot of amazing people at the pool!

Best wedding day and trip ever!!

We just visited for a week and had our wedding ceremony there and it was wonderful. The service there was spectacular and they made us feel so loved the entire time from small things done at dinner, to the set up in our room. We were at the pool daily and Omar the pool server was the best by far! He was always prepared to bring us drinks and super fast service! Always ask for him!! There are so many activities you could never get bored! We played sand volleyball for two hours straight and the hotel service came and watered it to make sure the sand wasn't to hot! Hands down overall great service! ONLY thing I would recommend is... bring nice pants! Almost all of the restaurants require that and we were not told by the hotel or the travel coordinator. Luckily, the gave our guys that didn't have pants waiter pants temporarily while eating.

Excellent place for all inclusive. Entertainment was great by the pool Diana was super always smiling and getting everyone together for activities. The pool waiter Fernando and Junior were always there to help and get what you needed.Rooms were great clean view was amazing. Each restaurant had quick service and very helpful to any requests you had. Food was great and the bar pool food was great and each day was different. The whole week was just fantastic. Sunny weather most of the day and some rain thunder in these evening. Made for some spectacular shows of lightning. Sunsets were amazing.

Fantastic Resort

This resort has a nice layout and is very easy to get around. Lots of good food and drinks. The restaurants are all good with an extra praise to the Mexican (best warm chocolate melting cake ever) and the buffet was always there to never disappoint.The hostess and waiters and waitresses in the Market Cafe were always there to serve and go above and beyond. The rooms are nice and large, comfortable, with plenty of room to shower and get dressed. Cleaned to our satisfaction every day....... Pools are great with lots of good music. Very enjoyable!!!!Only negative things I can say is 1 - that the SALES STAFF are always hounding you to take you on their sales pitch for time sharing. Even when you check in. Kind of tricky so just say no unless you are interested in a time share.Also 2 - the beach is awful, very granular and rocky. Also if you want to walk the beach you can't really go very far.

Couples Vacation

My fiance and I had a great trip to Secrets Puerto Vallarta Bay. We voluntarily attended a timeshare presentation for a discounted price through referral of a coworker. Hotel was beautiful and we were upgraded to a junior suite, which was awesome. Service was great- especially Alberto in the pool area! Pools and spa were also nice. The only downsides: the beach in front of the hotel is very rocky and the noise from construction and rooster and buses coming from an empty lot next to the preferred members wing waking us up early in the morning. Overall, I would recommend this resort and would definitely stay here again!
