Secrets Vallarta Bay
With rooms set in tall towers overlooking a palm-shaded pool complex, Secrets isn’t as secluded as the name suggests. But it is in a plum spot – right on the sand and just a stroll from the sunset boardwalk, El Malecón. Rooms come in modern, muted tones with balconies affording ocean views. You are unlikely to get bored here as there are plenty of organized activities on offer.
