This review is for the restaurants only. Bordeaux - Good French food. 4 star. Capers - Food is good.Ambience is lacking. Great desserts. 3.5 star. Himitsu - Our teppanyaki experience was terrific on one evening so we returned to dine on their regular menu a couple of evenings later. Terrible in every way. Service was rushed and they forgot basic...

We have just returned from a wonderful 8 day vacation at Secrets Vallarta Bay! This was our first time here, although we have been to Secrets Huatulco previously.

We typically stay at all inclusive in Cancun. Our favorite place was being renovated so my Wife did some research and booked here. Before I get into the positives I did want to share the only easily fixed downside. Since we are from Colorado the sand and surf are very important. We don't mind too much vendors trying to make...

As long time members (we've been to 5 different Secrets and 4 Dreams, and we have been 4 times in the past 9 months, even getting married at Dreams Los Cabos this summer), we've always liked the food, the rooms and the service at these resorts.
