Destination Wedding

We were the parents of the groom and couldn't have asked for a nicer wedding. Our overall experience was really great. The staff went above and beyond and treated us like royalty. The hotel was beautiful and the room was really nice. The only negative was that the room had a strong disinfectant smell that was not pleasant. The city tour was interesting and we enjoyed the tequila tasting tour. We wished that there were some shorter day trips as most of them were 6-8 hrs long. This was our first trip to Mexico and highly reccomend Secrets' Resort.

Wonderful Vacation getaway for friends or a couple

It went beyond my expectations. This was by far my best vacation ever. The hotel, its location, the food, the staff, the atmosphere was superb. I am definitely going back. 5 stars in my view.

If I can recall, there were more than 5 different restaurants to choose from on the premises and you are allowed to dine at the sister resort as well. Many different options of food and entertainment.

Very dissappointed.

Absolutely TERRIBLE Pool with swim-up bar: SMALL, SMALL, SMALL for about 60-80 yelling and drunk persons, so small, that if you are not drunk and want to swim in a pool- you literally don't have enough place. There is one more pool inside of the ground, but far from the beach and of course you'll feel extra heat and humidity... The water was very-very worm even early morning, even at 7:30 AM, like worm milk and not fresh.... Looks like water in the pool was not changed as quick as needed, but this is my opinion, in Secrets in Cabo, we saw this change visually. All pools in Secrets as well as in its sister's "mirror's" Now Amber- are very small. Room: I feel that we are sleeping in a big bathroom, because there is no any wall or even 1/2 wall between sleeping area and tub, only very thin cotton curtain, also very strange...even for couple.. We had room on 15th floor, and despite a breathtaking view, there was very unpleasant constant noise, probably from refrigerators, audible even on our 15th floor, day and night. WiFi - DOES NOT WORK IN THE ROOM AT ALL !!! Only in the lobby, sometimes on the beach. Buffet was shared with Now, not so comfortable. Buffet in Now not so good as in Secrets. Food, Service, unlimited telephone calls from the room, unlimited towels, clean, stuff - really excellent! I'd recommend to order DE-HUMIDIFIER machine when check-in, this will very helpful to keep humidity in a normal range in the room. There is very slow air condition inside of elevator, very hot and wet. For those who love to swim in ocean: beach-perfect, swimmable, with lifeguard service 9AM-5PM, with bordered area for swimming, but bottom is a bit rocky, not sandy. The water in the ocean was amazing, in the morning like mirror, during all day with very slow waves. There are many shades and palapas with lounge-chairs on the beach, and was never crowded. Finally: we definitely will not return to this resort. .

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

Beach!!!! Swimmable, lifeguard every day from 9AM to 5PM, the swimming area is well bordered. The bottom is a bit rocky, but the water in the ocean was amazing. Many people were playing in the ocean. Probably special shoes for rocky beach will help. There are many lounge-chairs all over the beach, to find a place is not a problem at all.

Great All Inclusive Resort!

This resort knows the concept of all inclusive! There are no wristbands, no dinner reservations, no pool towel cards, and everything in the room is included. Also, we weren't hasseled about a timeshare, which was great. The resort was very clean and the staff was so friendly and accommodating. Room service was great and fast. There wasn't a buffet for dinner, just for breakfast and lunch. The resort was at 100% occupancy, but we were still served quickly. One thing you'll need to know is that there are roosters in the back of the hotel and they crow every morning about 5:00 am. Overall, we had a wonderful time and will be back!

THIS RESORT IS NOT AN ADULTS ONLY RESORT!!!!!

First lets start with our room not being ready, we waited over 2 hrs before we could get into our room and lets keep in mind it is the slow season. Secondly, this resort is advertised as an ADULTS ONLY resort yet this really is not true!!! You see there are two sides to this resort, family/adults yet the kids come over to the adult side for the entertainment that is provided. The entertainment is not bad but not the greatest as far as I am concerned for a 5 star hotel. Also the adult side only has 3 restaurants and one of them is usually only open for breakfast. The family side has 5 restaurants not all open at all times so you have to go over and eat with the kids. They also have the Disco on the family side. It just does not make sense the only real thing there, that is adult only, are the pools. Now please don't get me wrong I truly adore kids but when I pay a lot of money to go to an ADULTS ONLY RESORT!!! that's what I expect. It is also very uncomfortable when you go down to the beach to relax and suntan because they allow the locals on the beach and they are consistently bugging you to buy stuff. The beach by the way does not look like the white sand beach on the picture it all little stone which hurts your feet a lot.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

We went to Dolphin Adventure located in the Nuevo Vallarta Marina and did the Signature swim it was amazing!!! When we were checking in we were told because you are swimming with the Dolphins, you can also swim with the Sea Lions for only $29.00 each instead of $79.00 each. The tour company will not tell you this. So if you wish to do both WAIT until you get to the marina. The guy we dealt with at the hotel when we told him we wanted to do both, did not inform us the facility also had the sea lions and we went on an hour boat ride to swim with the sea lion and it cost us $340.00, where if he had been an honest person, it would of saved us $280.00.

Superior Experience

Overall...This was an amazing vacation. From the moment we drove up to the resort to the moment we left we were delighted with the secrets experience. You are relieved of your bags and greeted with champagne. We found that all staff were extremely friendly from beginning to end. The resort is clean and beautiful and the experience is nothing short of amazing. Tipping...While we tipped during our stay, we found that service was friendly regardless of tipping or not. We thought it was important to tip because the staff are so friendly and worked hard to make the experience enjoyable. I noticed that some reviewers said staff were only friendly if you tipped them. That was not our experience...we found that the majority of the staff was so very friendly regardless of tipping. The room...The room was AMAZING. We had an ocean view room. I notice that people commented on the dogs and roosters making noise in the morning. While we did indeed hear the roosters and dogs in the morning, it was not a nuisance. In fact, we could barely hear them. We could however hear the beautiful crash of the ocean waves which was incredible. I can see how for light sleepers the roosters and dogs would be annoying. I would recommend an ocean view on a higher floor to avoid the noise. Turndown Service...Our turndown service was reliable and the woman who came each day (around 7ish) was the nicest person in the world...she was delightful and we always looked forward to seeing her. The Tours...We did the rhythms tour and the tropical city tour... both were nice. Rhythms is amazing with a beautiful dinner beforehand, and it was great to do the tropical tour and see more of the city. The Timeshare breakfast and presentation (they say it is NOT a timeshare)...We did sit through the 90min breakfast and talk to hear about the unlimited vacation package. They did apply pressure, but we were clear that we did not want to buy into the timeshare. For our time, we got the tropical tour for free and paid a minimal cost for the Rhythms tour. We did meet a couple who had previously purchased the unlimited vacation package and they seemed happy with it...it just was not for us. Priority Club...We upgraded to the priority club and we found all staff to be friendly and pleasant at all times. There was always a food spread, which we dabbled from a few times and the staff at the bar are amazing. Ocean and Pool...The waves were strong in the ocean during our stay, so we spent a lot of time in the pools which was pleasant. There are vendors on the beach trying to sell you stuff which can get annoying, but it was manageable. The food...the food was good all around. Not amazing, but solidly good. Spa...We opted for massages on massage row. Our favorite spot was to the left out of the Secrets resort, the 2nd spot on the left hand side. We had Sara and Veve and they were AMAZING!!! The best massage E.V.E.R!!!! And...$25USD/per person or $300 pesos per person. AMAZING. Entertainment...The entertainment staff are friendly and fun. There is a rainy day schedule of events as well which is nice. It's true, you have to pick and choose what activities you will like. There are sports, spanish lessons, water sports and shows. We went to some of the shows...and some were really fun and others just ok. The great thing is if there is nothing you want to do at the resort there are plenty of things to do around town. Shopping...BARGAIN ALWAYS...some of the prices start off ridiculously high...know what you are willing to pay (being reasonable of course) and stick to your guns... Really and truly a great experience. We would definitely go back!!! Our experience with secrets was an A+...Enjoy your trip!!!!
