This was our second time staying at this Secrets! We loved it so much the first time that we had to come back! We stayed here in October of 2013 when the weather was great and the tourists were at a minimum (great in my opinion). We stayed at Dreams in January 2016 in Nuevo Vallarta and we were disappointed...

We spent 4 nights here Dec. 1-5. Check-in went smoothly, although we felt a little harried simply because of the amount of activity going on in the lobby area. Baggage is all handled by the bellmen. Our room was not quite ready (we DID arrive early), but it was ready app an hour before the actual check -in time. Upon...

This place is amazing, the rooms are lush with amazing sea views, the food is incredible and plenty of choice, love that you don't have to book or that you are not limited to a certain amount of visits. The staff are so friendly and willing to help special mentions to Cesar,Carlos and Joel who work in the market place...

The staff are friendly and wonderful. The facilities were diverse and interesting. I liked how they turned the night club into a sports bar for watching NFL football on Mondays, Thursdays, and Sunday. The nightclub VIP package for $90 USD is well worth it considering you get unlimited drinks as well.

We were on this trip over the Thanksgiving break - which I presume is the reason the accommodations were so expensive. Food was average, drinks poolside were weak (had to go into the owners club for a decent drink) ongoing construction, late night circus next door, rocky beach and poor pool side service were the norm. HOWEVER, if I had...

Just returned from another great holiday! As we are repeat guests it is the service and food that keep us coming back to this beautiful resort. The staff in all areas are so friendly and helpful, but the following names, to us, were outstanding. Market Cafe - Breakfast - Humberto, Anahi & Iris Beach Waiters. - Manolo, Juan & Carlos...

Short but sweet, the service is outstanding a special shout out to our buddy Manuel Bugarel. He treated us so well and went above and beyond our expectations! We will miss seeing him everyday. All the other servers were great as well. The a la carte restaurants were awesome. We didn't get a chance to try the French but the...

Stayed at sister hotel next door on the past three visits and decided to stay at the Secrets side this time. Was a little disappointed that upon check in we were not offered a glass of champaine or cool towel. We had to remind the front desk staff.. Housekeeping was a little inconsistent. We also had a swim out room...

Booked through Apple Vacations and very glad we did. They made the entire trip very enjoyable! The resort itself is beautiful and is actually two resorts in one. Secrets is adults only and where we stayed. Now Amber is the Family side of the same resort. We had access to both sides of the resort including restaurants and entertainment but...
