The entire staff is so warm and hospitable that they truly make you feel like you are family. The property is so clean and beautiful. There are a veriety of restaurants 9, to be exact to choose from. From Italian to Chinese, French and of course Mexican. The staff goes above and beyond to cater to your needs. You have to check out Diana at the preferred club, she is excellent and goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy. Jose the waiter at Bourdoux, the frech restaurant will take care of you as well. They will take good care of you.Tips are apprciated. The all inclusive is the best way to go. The service is exceptional at the pools and all the restaurants as well as housekeeping. They have a kids club as well from the ages 3-12 years, which looks very fun for kids. The kids club is included in the stay. No additional charges apply. Also, there are daily shows for families and various activities to choose from. The whole family will enjoy. More>

Great resort with impeccable service, but food could be better

First off, if you are just a couple then stay at the Secrets side of the resort - the Now side of the resort is primarily for families. That being said, we had a truly lovely stay at the resort. The service was impeccable. We stayed at the VIP section of the Now Resort. We had a jacuzzi on the fourth floor, and it was wonderful. We were greeted by Alejandro that hooked up VIP passes and a great room for us upon arrival. We also loved Yoanna who remembered our names from the first time she met us in the Secrets side buffet. Raul was an incredible chef at the Asain restaurant as well. Our concierge, Irvin, was helpful in helping us find the local spots. Oscar, our beachside waiter, brought us many drinks and was extremely helpful remembering our names and making friends with us. It was our honeymoon and they made it special with a complimentary champaign breakfast and decorated room with rose petals and champagne. When my wife had heart burn, we went to the store in the Secrets side, and Beatrice let us buy something even when it was closed. The service was seriously amazing. We ordered room service in the middle of the night multiple times and we received it with a smile. We had everything we needed and our needs were met quickly. The spa was more than wonderful for my wife, she recommends their amazing services. Our only critique would be the quality of meat they served. Food was pretty good, but the meat could have been much better. The Asian restaurant was great and we went three times because the other restaurants were fairly lackluster. Also, we also weren't fans of the amount of sales pitches we received. Overall, a wonderful vacation. I have been to many resorts around the world and this one had some of the best service I have ever had. More>

Amazing Honeymoon

My partner and I have just returned from our second trip to Now Amber and it's as good as it was the first time we were there. We were celebrating our honeymoon and were welcomed at our room by a honeymoon banner, flowers and bottle of fizz. The hotel is lovely and spacious. There are plenty of seats around the pools and beach area however not all of these have parasols, so if you like the shade it may be best to get up early to ensure you can get one. The service around the pool bar is great and the waiters are more than happy to keep replenishing your drinks (although as per most hotels, a tip ensures even greater service). There is plenty of selection from the all inclusive bar and isn't just the cheaper local brands. They have available such brands as Jack Daniels, Johnny Walker, Smirnoff, Absolute etc and don't scrimp on the measures. Anyone complaining about the bed sheets not being changed are completely unjustified. Like many hotels now and the Eco-friendly drive, there is a place card at the side of the bed starting that if bedcovers are to be changed then the card it to be placed on the bed to make the cleaner aware. The rooms are spacious and all have pool and sea views. The restaurants based within the hotel are fantastic and can offer a wide range of starters, main courses and deserts. On entering the hotels you are handed a wine list, however this is not compulsory and there is no hassle if you chose to stick with the house wines, of which there is plenty of selection. The best place to eat by far is the Himitsu restaurant and the Teppinyaki table. This again is included in the all inclusive package and there is no limit on the number of times this can be used across your stay. All in all a fantastic hotel with great services. More>

Loved this place. Nothing but good things to say. Excellent service form check in to check out. All inclusive and no pressure. Food was great, liquor was top shelf, pool was awesome and beach was clean and inviting. Room was perfect. Bed was comfortable and the AC worked!!! Not always the case in Mexico. Had a fantastic business weekend and wanted it to last another three days. worth every penny!!! More>

An enjoyable holiday overall but won't return

Have just returned from a 2 week holiday to the Now Amber with my boyfriend. After an 11 hour flight from London Gatwick the welcome glass of sparking wine (this is not champagne as people keep saying) and a cold flannel was appreciated on arrival! Check in was fine, not the quickest I've experienced in a hotel but no more than 20 mins. Upon opening the door to our room the smell of musty damp was overpowering! That and the obvious damp stains on the ceiling near the air con didn't impress me. The room itself was a good size, the bathroom area lovely and enough storage space for the two of us. The bed was large and comfy and being on the 11th floor meant we had a great view of the ocean. After mentioning the following day the damp issue to our rep she requested a dehumidifier for our room which was put in however didn't work. We rang down to reception about this and explained the issue and they told us someone would be up to our room right away - 40 minutes later to me isn't right away! This was finally sorted and the smell began to weaken over the next few days. The pools and space around them are nowhere near big enough for the amount of guests. You may not have to rush for a sunbed everyday but if you want one with a parasol you need to be out early!! The first few days of our holiday was extra busy and we were packed in like sardines! The pools themselves always seemed like they needed a good clean. There appeared to be no proper filter so constantly found flies and straws from the pool bar floating around, lots of sand at the bottom also! Put it this way, I wouldn't go in there with any open cuts!!! Breakfast and lunch in the buffet restaurant was always good, never tried it for dinner so can't comment on that. Himitsu the Asian restaurant was our favourite and the service was great, especially from Amelio! Italian and the French on the Secrets side was also good. However we were often given a wine list to chose from in which you had to pay. After paying the best part of £1300 for my all inclusive holiday I don't then expect to pay for quality wine, this should be included hence "all inclusive"! Rooms service food was pretty naff and wouldn't recommend. There are lots of small things this hotel could do to make it better. The issue of damp in the rooms which keeps appearing in the reviews needs to be addressed and prevented and not just dealt with every time someone complains. More sun parasols around the pool area. Food needs to be kept in a specific area around the pool. At the moment you can walk around with your food meaning people drop a lot of it on the floor or just leave plates by sunbeds resulting in masses of pigeons - something I was hoping to leave behind in London!!! Service overall could be improved. Our maid did a good job of cleaning our room however there was a makeup stain on our bed sheets that stayed there for over a week so clearly hadn't been changed! In all of the restaurants my boyfriends plate was always taken away whilst I was still finishing my food, this is a big no no! In order to get excellent service around the pool you need to tip. I may be wrong but I always thought you tip If you have received good service, you shouldn't have to tip in order to get it! It may seem like a lot of complaining however we did enjoy our holiday. I think this was however mostly due to the amazing weather, excursions organised by Thomson and not having to go to work for two weeks! Would I recommend Now Amber? No I wouldn't is my answer.
