A Magical Evening at Secrets Vallarta Bay

Leave a comment

Last night I started the evening out by going to the Lobby here at Secrets Vallarta Bay to enjoy both the Sunset and the great Cuban Duet that was playing there and it was wonderful!

The lobby bar is a great place to watch the sunset…as it slides down from the sky and into the Pacific Ocean…a magical moment for sure! Both the Service and the Drinks are very good. I like that they have Drink Menus on the Cocktail Tables! The seating is so comfy and there is plenty of it too! There are both smoking and non smoking areas The lobby set up is Elegant and Comfortable both at the same time.

The LIVE Music just added to the ambiance of the moment! A smooth Jazz that made it magical for me! The Girl Singer of the Duet had a great voice and she also played the keyboard and her partner played a different keyboard. It all just added to the Moment and took me away…completely relaxing and caught up in the moment!

The Sunsets here are truly amazing I’ve enjoyed them so much!

After that I went to Bordeaux for Dinner and again wasn’t disappointed with my choice. I love the decor of the Restaurant, the ambiance is elegant yet relaxed and comfortable. The artwork is beautiful and the Menu and Service both impeccable

I had a lovely starter salad (sorry I forgot to take a pic of that) followed by The French Onion Soup which was one of the BEST I have ever tasted! Then came the Filet of Beef that was prepared perfectly and the sauce that accompanied it just perfect! As were the potatoes and asparagus! Then topped it all off with the most amazing Pistachio Cake! This has been one of the best meals thus far on my trip and I must say that each of my meals have been great!

Below is a slide show of my evening…I hope you enjoy and can “feel” some of what I did. It was Magical for me and I think that you too will find Magical Moments here at Secrets Vallarta Bay.

After an eventful trip with late start and gate changes we made it here at NOW Amber and Secrets Vallarta Bay and WE LOVE IT!


After getting to my room 1657 in Now Amber and a quick unpack realized that I forgot to  pack my 3 cameras, and they were home on my couch! GRRR!  But Lindsey, Fernando and Sergio of  Amstar came to my rescue!  They are my ROCK STARS of Amstar!  Got me to a Walmart and bought a new camera and extra battery so now I’m loaded for bear and let the postings begin!


The sunset from my room yesterday was GORGEOUS AND AMazing!  Then I went down to the lobby of NOW Amber and walked over to the Lobby of Secrets to explore a bit!  Elizabeth the Concierge was so helpful helping me get my memory card out of the plastic packaging!  Then later showing me how to get to Castaways for Dinner!  Gracias and Kudos to Elizabeth and all the staff I’ve met thus far!  Really felling the LOVE!


Speaking of LOVE there is a LOT of it here!  Have seen some familiar faces and waved and hugged old friends and met some AMazing New ones!  This place captures my heart for sure! 


The Vibe in the lobby last night with the LIVE Music, Spectacular Sunset, Great Drink was a perfect combination of AH…I’m HOME!


Found my way to Castaways and had a lovely dinner there!  The menu was extensive and everything was so good!  I had the Shrimp and Spinach Salad to start the Beef Chimichura Style and topped it off with Tirimisu and a Black Sambuca! 


Then came back to my room for an early sleep and WOW the bed and linens and having the door to my patio open and hearing those waves put me right to SLEEP! 


Have been posting pics and tweeting pics too via LeoPODo my Ipod touch…haven’t downloaded anything yet onto Leopardo Laptop…but that will come!




Above are the links for Twitter and Facebook, hope you will be following along and enjoying this AMazing Adventure that is #VivaVallarta

4 More days and “The Leopardo Boys” and I will be off on yet another AMazing AMResorts Adventure!

We are heading back to Puerto Vallarta Mexico on the Pacific Coast! We just LOVE it there! It has so much to offer…the gorgeous Pacific Ocean, the mountains, lovely bays….the scenery is breathtaking and the people are so friendly … a little slice of heaven right here on earth!

We have been to both Dreams Resorts Several Times and just LOVE THEM! Both Dreams Puerto Vallarta and Dreams Villamagna have so much to offer their guest from the UNlimited Luxury to the warm feeling of family that you have as the staff goes out of their way to make sure that you are well cared for! No wonder AMResorts are “The Masters of Vacation Innovation”! They really know how to do it right!

This trip is going to be extra exciting because in April…or as I like to say AMazing April… There will be two new AMResorts opening in Puerto Vallarta! NOW Amber and Secret Vallarta Bay! They will be AMazing Additions not only to the AMResorts Family of Brands but also to the Puerto Vallarta area! Just a few steps from the World Famous Malecon and on a lovely part of the beach! I can’t wait to see them!

While in Puerto Vallarta I’ll be Tweeting, Blogging and posting LIVE FROM on my FaceBook page and also each of the Resorts FaceBook FanPage. I hope you all will join me!

Please feel free to share my tweets and posts with your friends who know the PVR area or want to know more…its fun to “Share Sweet DREAMS, Reveal Special SECRETS and Magical Moments of NOW”

Well Leopardo and I are back from the “Magical Mexican Mystery Tour”…and we still are working on pics, vids and slide shoes and unpacking and doing laundry…

BUT…we always have your eyes PEELED for the next AMazing Adventure and it looks like we will be going to Puerto Vallarta in January…and being that close we will also be visiting Nuevo Vallarta….which means that we will be visiting the DREAM TEAMS at both Dreams Puerto Vallarta and Dreams Villamagna!

Afterall its been since July of 2009 since we last visited and SWEET DREAMS are always dancing around in Leopardo and my head… So its time to go back and re-live the Sweet Dreams we had in 09 and see whats new and exciting since our last time there!

We know that there are some NEW Faces around at both SWEET DREAMS, some that we know from some previous travels…and brand new that we can’t wait to meet too!

So while we are working on the pics and vids from “MMM” (The Magical Mayan Mystery Tour) we will be sprinkling in some “Sweet DAYDREAMING on Puerto and Nuevo Vallarta and the SWEET DREAMS THERE that are to come in the “Viva Vallarta TOUR”… I’m thinking that might be the title of the trip and the tee shirt!

So tonight a little slide show of Dreams Puerto Vallarta…and the AMazing Memories of July 4th of 2009! WOW WHATTA FUN TIME IT WAS!
