  • Moderate Critic Rating

Like its sister resort, Now Amber Puerto Vallarta, Secrets Vallarta Bay Puerto Vallarta overlooks the Pacific coast and offers guests the same access to El Malecón’s entertainment.

The sleek 14,000-square-foot Secrets Spa by Pevonia adds to that effect with its unique body treatments and massages, like seaweed body wraps and hot stone therapies. And the 271 suites stay on-theme with marble floors, satellite TVs, iPod docks and private terraces or balconies. If you upgrade to the Preferred Club, you’ll get perks like a spacious sitting area, complimentary newspaper delivery and access to the Preferred Club Lounge, where continental breakfast, afternoon hors d’oeuvres and desserts are served daily.
