I spent two wonderful weeks at Secrets Vallarta Bay with a close friend to help her celebrate a decade birthday. Of course, from all my previous visits to this wonderful resort, I knew they would make this birthday very special. And they did!

When you think of vacation you think about people taking care of you, attending to your every need, waiting on you hand and foot. Well look no further than Secrets!

Always stay secret hotel. Rooms are beautiful and maid service are perfection. Did not use the swimming pool but played golf. Breakfast are just ok but dinners are awesome. Bell boys are so friendly and helpful.

Let's just start by saying the location and the views are without question some of the best I have seen. Stunning sunsets from anywhere in the resort (but that also means limited sun in the early morning if you are early morning pool people). The beach is barely walkable and you are taking your life into your own hands if...
