    Not the best Secrets resort

    I would not stay here again. I hated the layout and most of the pools were too shallow and dirty. The room was not designed well, and it was very loud at night with people yelling, running and laughing. You can’t be a 5 star resort with 2 star guests. The beach was basically unusable and it was entirely too much walking. The only employee we were really impressed with was Paty at the level 6 pools. The hotel needs to put out water stations or coolers or something for guests to get drinks before 11 am, especially down on zero.

    amazing experience

    Mr Guerra made our experience amazing! Thank you! The overall staff ( Frida and Angel) was so friendly and helpful. It was our first time at an all-inclusive resort, and we were hesitant to book but the overall stay turned out to be so much fun. I highly recommend giving secrets a chance. Please note your only 20 minutes from Sayulita and its a really cool village to go shop or do a little partying at.

    Well Needed Bliss

    This was my second time staying at Secrets Bahia Mita and once again it was fantastic! Many food options to choose from, the room and facilities were clean and spacious, and the staff take excellent care to make the experience as enjoyable as possible. We attended multiple shows that were entertaining and exciting. The folklorico at the fiesta was beautiful to see. Highly recommend the Himitsu hibachi experience where Briayan and Osvaldo put on a great show with even better food. Ramon provided excellent service at Portofino. The pools are beautiful and the perfect temperature. Victor, Paty, and Ivan provided timely poolside/beach service and took great care of all 9 of us on our big family trip. Mercedes, Diego, and Antonio (Morales) never let our glasses run empty in the speakeasy which is always well appreciated. They will try to upsell with bottle service or extra dinners that sound delightful if that's your thing but it wasn't for us this trip. Alejandro offered a beautiful dinner that my friend and I weren't interested in but he wasn't pushy, understood, and still chatted with us for a bit about how we were enjoying things which was appreciated. Would love to maybe see some quick snack options (chips, candy) within the room or upon request but you never have to go far to find a bite and room service is always an option. While the construction at times was overwhelming I'm looking forward to the new improvements and would love to come back!

    Wonderful Vacation Experience

    This was one of my favorite resorts that I have visited. The vacation experience was very enjoyable as the resort has a very friendly staff, excellent dining, comfortable rooms and numerous activities. Starting off with the dining, there are a wide option of restaurants offered throughout the resort. All the restaurant were easy to get into without any reservations (we had to have reservations at other resorts) The highlight was the food, the best we have experienced at any Secrets. Our favorite was the Bordeaux restaurant, although the Portofino was excellent as well. In addition the drinks at all the bars made were wonderfully mixed and served. Our favorite servers were Moises, Pablo and Andreas in the Bordeaux and Manual in the Portofino. For activities, we enjoyed the pools. The best experience was the pool on the 8th floor overlooking the resort and ocean. Wonderful ambience and service at the pool. Best pool server was Julio, always looks out after you. When it came to other activities, Aydee of the entertainment team was instrumental in giving us the information. She was always fun to visit with when we saw her throughout the resort. We played Pickleball every morning with their instructor Rafael. He had players at all levels out playing, giving the new players assistance and tips while setting up games for the more experience players. The resort also had a well equipped gym that we visited every morning. They had a spin instructor giving a class every morning, but we did not take the class. Our room was very comfortable. spacious bathroom area with a shower giving you two options of shower heads to use. It had a super plush bed with plenty of pillows. The Secrets and Dreams share some of the common areas at this resort. The Secrets is located on the fourth floor and higher which offers exclusivity to the adults/couples for some of the restaurants and pools if you don't want to be around the kids. I would recommend this resort for anyone looking for a relaxing vacation at a top quality resort destination on the coast in Bahia Mita, just north of Puerto Vallarta.
