Well what can I say, the hotel is fantastic and service is great too. You could go on about all of the positives and negatives all day but I just want to say one thing that's stands out for myself and my partner. The staff made it for us... Big thank you for your 10/10 service from the bar to making fresh food. Antonio from the barefoot grill, And from around the pool a big thanks to David, Jose Luis, Paco, Hugo, Christian & Nicholas. You made it for us. More>

Perfect Trip..ignore any negative reviews

We booked the Now Amber at the recommendation of our travel agent ( yes we still use a travel agent ) in January for April travel. My husband is nervous about travelling somewhere that is "not as advertised" and our travel agent has never steered us wrong. I started to read all the reviews on Trip Advisor as soon as we booked and was nervous with the variance of reviews and any concerns raised. I should not have worried as we had a wonderful vacation and would not hesitate to return. We flew with West Jet which was great and had transfer to the hotel which is a short 15 minute drive away. Upon arrival we were greeted with cool towels and champagne in flutes. Our luggage was brought up to our room by our favourite staff member of the week Armando. He went above and beyond to ensure we had enough hangers in the closet, knew how to operate the air conditioner, and other various amenities. He later int he week helped us get a cab and looked after our luggage upon departure. We were approached by the time share people you will read about in the reviews and it is intense but we firmly but respectfully declined. The lobby is huge, breezy, immaculate and beautiful. We frequently would go there to relax, take pictures of the sunset and enjoy a drink. There is usually nightly musical entertainment in the lobby and it is soothing and enjoyable ( one night the lady brought a harp ) The lobby is wide open and features an infinity water area out to the ocean view. The Room: we were on the 8th floor in a double room with the two beds we had anticipated but were concerned there would be only one bed ( as mentioned in some reviews ) as my husband and I were travelling with our 12 year old daughter. The room is even larger than it appears in the literature ( which is usually the opposite ) and is ultra modern. Some people do not care as much about the room when on vacation but it is extremely important to us and were very happy. The room has double sinks, a separate toilet area with a door, huge shower that has great water pressure. The beds were comfortable and there is nightly turn down service with chocolates, replenished towels and the itinerary for the following day. Room service was thorough. The complimentary toiletries were generous in size and a great variety of items including a box of q-tips,cotton balls and an emery board, shoe polisher, shower cap, sewing kit. The room comes with robes and slippers which we enjoyed. The Pool: The pools were always clean and a great temperature. We are early risers so getting a good lounge chair was not a problem and towels were large, thick and always available. Nicholas who works at the swim up bar works non stop with a smile to ensure the drinks are made well and quickly. Oh ya and forget what you have ever thought about the bathrooms by the pool...these ones are always clean separate rooms with a door ( not stalls ) and there are fresh rolled towels to dry your hands in very bathroom at the resort...no air dryers or paper towels. We enjoyed swimming and participated in the water aerobics class at noon on a number of occasions and thoroughly enjoyed it. Food: IGNORE all the reviews that say the buffet has poor selection!! The variety at breakfast is unbelievable, fresh and always the perfect temperature. I had a fresh custom omelette each day and there are even amazing meat dishes you would expect for dinner only at breakfast! The juices are fresh squeezed and include watermelon juice and it was amazing. There is a custom smoothie bar and you are offered mimosa 's with your breakfast. Our favourite restaurant by far was Capers the Italian restaurant and we enjoyed the food and service immensely. The risotto was incredible and the pistachio creme brulee soooo good. We also went to the Mexican restaurant and Castaways. You could never say there isn't enough selection. My husband gained 10 pounds LOL The ocean was great and taking water shoes with you was some of the best advice I read prior as it gets rocky as you walks further out. The lifeguard on the beach is very attentive. The sellers on the beach do approach you immediately but if you say no, they immediately leave you alone. THe staff at this resort work tirelessly and constantly to ensure you have the best experience and the resort is IMMACULATE !!!! Don't hesitate...just book and enjoy!! More>

Great staff, amenities, location and food! A must stay. Ana at the front desk is the absolute BEST! She hits you first with a wonderful smile and follows it up with a sweet, bubbly personality. She took the time not just to check us in but answered our questions and was very knowledgeable about the activities and "Things to do" More>

Amazing Family Holiday

Just returned from Now Amber after staying April 24-May 1. We had a third floor room in the regular tower (not preferred) which they call a garden view but we had an amazing ocean view also. Stayed with husband and 16 year old son as well as both our mothers who had a double room down the hall from us. We had a king room and they brought in a double rollout bed for my son. The resort was at about 80% full we heard and never had an issue with finding 5 chairs all together with umbrellas for shade. Love not having towel cards or wrist bands to scratch yourself with. Found the buffet in the evening to be small so we only went to it once .We enjoyed Himitsu, Capers, Tamarindo for dinners and loved Castaway by the pool for lunch. Excellent breakfast buffet!! David and Christofer by the pools were super guyswho seem to love their jobs. My son played tennis, pistol shooting, batting cage, beach volleyball, pool volleyball and ping pong. There is lots to do you sometimes just have to get off your bums and look. Teen club never had anyone there but there are pool tables etc... Yuri and Mara with the entertainment crew were so nice and friendly, my son has friends for life. All areas were very clean and the pool was the perfect temp. We did go over to the secrets side twice for smoothies and swim up drinks. Never seemed to be an issue. Saw a couple of weddings and fireworks, very nice. Special added touches that I have never seen before at a resort are cool towels distributed around pool area and often snacks such as popcorn, chips and raw veggies were handed out by Patricia. We generally never go to the same resort twice and have frequented the Puerto/Nuevo Vallarta area many times but we would definitely return and tell all our friends to go. You won't be disappointed. On a side note we booked with Sunwing (no issues) and had the "room deal of the day". The swim-out preferred suites do look pretty awesome - the waiters server right to them. :) More>

This resort exceeded my expectations. I am not sure if it is the management, or the helpful and genuine staff or the combination of the two, but I was truly impressed. We booked an ocean view room and the scenery is worth the extra charge. The view is breathtaking and the sunsets are phenomenal. The room was clean, modern, large and had everything you could need. There are little details that made us smile, such as incense and matches in the bathroom, various modes of lighting built into the ceiling and the sitting area by the window where you could enjoy that gorgeous view comfortably. There was a humidifier in our room and it needed to be emptied quite frequently but it takes about a minute to do and did not bother us. The staff were great. They were helpful, polite, and never overbearing. They managed to always appear when we needed something and did their best to accommodate us. The airline has lost my luggage on the way there and the staff did everything in their power to make our stay as comfortable as they could. The food in the buffet was very decent. It wasn’t extravagant but it had variety and was well made. We had most of our dinners in the restaurants inside the resort and those served truly restaurant quality food. The coffee bar was one of my favorite aspects of the resort. There were always snacks and delicious coffee. The beach and the pools always had available spaces. We spent most of our time at the beach. There are vendors trying to get your attention but it is quite common everywhere in Puerto Vallarta. We also used the gym quite frequently. It is located on the Secrets side and is a short walk across. It had a lot of equipment and was never too busy. I would absolutely come back to Now Amber again and would recommend it to anyone. It may cost a little more than an average all-inclusive resort but it is well worth it. More>
