Our second trip to SVB and again enjoyed our stay. This was not a planned trip and were lucky to be able to get in to this resort on very short notice. Love the location, only a 20 minute walk to downtown PV and a 15 minute cab ride fr.om the airport. Service, as always, was fantastic as the staff...

I had my beach wedding at Now Amber on March 16th and everything was absolutely fabulous. My fiance and I stayed at Secrets. My two sons stayed at the Now Amber property. Upon arrival, we were given a drink and a cool towel. Great! Now on to check-in. There was some kind of horrible mix up with my reservation which...

My partner and I had reservations about coming to this hotel after seeing the latest reviews on trip advisor. If you want a quiet relaxing holiday this is not the hotel to come to. The beach is the closest we could get to something resembling a relaxing area. The private beach area is maintained really well but you need to...

We visited from March the 17-22nd and from the time or our arrival, the level of service we experienced was better than at any hotel I have stayed and that includes Ritz Carlton and the Fontainebleau in Miami. We were greeted with champagne and cool towels as soon as we got out of the cab. We enjoyed everything about our...

This is our 2nd visit to Secrets Vallarta and the hotel is nice. If interested in this property, take note that it is on the same property as Now Vallarta so you will come in contact with children under 18. There are a few separate areas, but children are hard to avoid. The beach is very rocky and aggressive so...

This was our first trip to Mexico and first all-inclusive vacation and I can't imagine anything being better!

Overall holiday was very good. Beach/poolside areas where not large another for the size of the hotel.Also wasn't help that most days they had corporate functions where they closed large sections of the pool areas also the beach to accommodate these functions with no prior notice.
