Family Vacation 2016
natkoc, Kelowna, Canada

We visited Now Amber in November 2014 and stayed in the regular tower, we loved it so we decided to return in November 2016. We (husband, wife, and 15 year old) stayed in the Preferred side this time with a swim out pool, it was so nice, totally worth the extra money for the swim up. The customer service in this resort is great even at the swim ups they will bring you drinks and food- special thanks to Hugo for getting my daughter fries so many times! A special thank you to Concierge Cesar Vega as well- he was very helpful in all my questions and requests on Facebook-and I had a lot of questions:). The food is wonderful as well- you wont go hungry or get bored as there is a lot of variety and food everywhere-we were there 12 days. The entertainment is pretty good, lots of talented performers. Our favourite restaurants were Tamarindo -great waiter Francesco -in 2014 & 2016! and Himitsu- great waiters Jony, Santiago and Erick! Evening drinks in the lobby watching the sunset-Amazing! We had an almost perfect stay once again, the only reason I gave 4 stars instead of five is because our pool was in need of a cleaning by the time we left- the swim ups are shared with other rooms (drunk people dumping things) and debris was there-although it was only on day 10 maybe that I noticed ...on the other hand it was so nice to have our own pool area and chairs which brings me to my other issue we had this time-chair saving starting at 6 AM. On our 2014 trip we never had an issue finding a chair because the hotels policy is no chair saving-they removed peoples towels after 30 minutes, well this time around (2016)there were almost no chairs left by 8AM and guess when people showed up to sit in them...2PM. People figured out a loop hole, leave a magazine or something of no real value on your chair and it is considered a personal item and the staff no longer has control. I do NOT blame the hotel though, I blame disrespectful people. I was so glad we had a swim up when I witnessed the chair saving. I would definitely recommend the Now Amber to people and have done so, we hope to return again one day, as well as stay at AM Resorts elsewhere as we have had two great experiences and also like the fact that there are no wrist bands and towel deposits etc. Thank you Now Amber PS: Don't forget to tip these wonderful staff members, they work hard to please you.

Best Holiday Ever!

We've just returned from a fortnight at this great resort. As an older couple on our first trip to Mexico, we were naturally apprehensive, but for two weeks we have had our every need met in beautiful surroundings. As adults we had access to the quieter and slightly better appointed Secrets side of the resort, but preferred the livelier, more cheerful Amber side. Our room was large, attractive and very comfortable, the public areas and grounds well appointed and accessible and the gardens beautiful. The entertainment at the resort is truly top quality, with nightly shows, cabaret performances and an adults only bar. During the day, the entertainment team do a fantastic job of providing a variety of activities and a happy atmosphere without ever being intrusive. The bar staff work tirelessly to cater to all tastes. We loved the talented, intelligent, hard working young Mexicans we met. Although there are several restaurants on site, we never tired of the Carnival buffet, where the great range of dishes are complimented by sea food, stir fries and omelettes cooked to order. We were treated like royalty by Firmin's 'dream team', of Manuel, Rodolfo, Carlos, Roberto and Flor, in an environment run with cheerful efficiency by Carmen and Moncerrath. There is also a 24 hour cafe for tea, coffee and snacks, run by yet more great staff. The resort is centrally placed between the marina and the Maleçon, the downtown seaside area. The local taxis are reasonably priced but we weren't brave enough for the buses! We went on some spectacular trips - I especially liked the whale watching. All test can be booked in the resort.

Last November, my husband and I stayed at the Now Amber for a week as a part of an incentive trip for my his company. For reference, this is the third all-inclusive I have stayed at, the other two being in Riviera Maya and the Dominican Republic. Now Amber is probably one of the most noticeable resorts in the city. Service: We received excellent service throughout our entire stay. Not one employee we encountered was unpleasant. Most were very enthusiastic, from housekeeping to the front desk. Every service was timely and professional from the beachside pool boys to the room service. In my opinion, service can make or break an experience, and the staff most definitely enhanced our stay. Room: We had a standard suite with a king-sized bed. We thought the room was beautiful for being an average room. We were pretty high up, and all the rooms have a balcony with ocean view, which was gorgeous. On the front side of the hotel, all the halls are open to air with views of the city and more mountains. Housekeeping did not miss a beat. I noticed no mold, as I had read about in previous reviews. We did have to request restocking of water bottles for our mini fridge twice. Unfortunately during our stay, the AC went out (I believe it was throughout the hotel), making for a very humid room. However, it was taken care of in 24 hours. Grounds: Well-kept, pretty but crowded. The 3 pools are very clean. One is a kid's pool with a slide, another an activity pool, and the third has the pool-side bar. However, near the bar I was frequently bothered by a very heavy stench, which I think was a mixture of the fruit and alcohol becoming hot from the sun. My husband and some friends noticed it as well, and at some points it was nauseating enough to move away from the bar. Both the poolside chairs and beach chairs are -very- crowded together (arm's length or less). I prefer some space from other guests, and this was very difficult to obtain. The beach is very tiny, and crowded with resort beach toys and volleyball nets. To add to that, beachside solicitors camp in front of the resort daily, excluding the ones that walk up and down the beach. If you choose a beach chair in or near the front, expect to be asked to buy something at least 20 times a day. This was the worst I had ever seen soliciting on a beach. The beach ground itself is very rocky, but the water is clear and seaweed free. Food/Restaurants: We had our fair share of food and drinks. I think we could name on one hand food items that we were thoroughly impressed with and on the other, items that we really disliked. Throughout, the food was good, but not rave-worthy. The best meal was the one that was catered to the group we were with. Great breakfast with variety of choices at the buffet. I will say if you choose to eat outdoors at the buffet or poolside walk-up during the day, the pigeons are outrageous. They climb on the empty tables, walk around your feet and aren't scared of jack. I found this so gross and frustrating. Extra: There's lots of entertainment and activities offered throughout the day and night. One night they had a Mexican-themed fiesta on the grounds with authentic food, decor and entertainment, which we really enjoyed. Another night, they had some kind of party on the grounds with very loud music and yelling. Unfortunately, we were ready for bed around 10 that night, but were kept up with the noise that lasted into the wee morning hours. Since all rooms face the grounds, there's no way to escape something like that if you wanted, which was unpleasant. Overall, we enjoyed our stay...I highlighted most of the cons of our experience. We absolutely loved the city and markets of Puerto Vallarta and would love to see it again someday.

We've stayed at better.

I have mixed feelings about this resort, so it's taken me a long time to write this review. We stayed for a week last Easter. The pool and bars were so busy, it took forever to get a drink, even with regular tipping. They need to have a separate bar for kids and smoothies. I read the reviews before we booked, and people wrote that we could go to the adult only side. That was not true. I have stayed at resorts with much better buffets, but the restaurants were awesome. You did not need reservations for the restaurants. The nightly entertainment was the best we have seen at a resort.

Excellent facility and even more amazing staff!

Now Amber is a place our family will come back to time and time again! It was our first experience with an all-inclusive and we were so pleasantly surprised with the facility, the food and especially the staff. Carlos Diaz made every day more enjoyable than the next. He took such care of our family all week, even setting up a special dinner for our last night. The rooms all have amazing views of the water and the sunsets there are gorgeous. Our 7 year old loved spending time with the ladies at Explorers Club.. even made two new friends who are now his pen-pals. We were sad to leave Now Amber and look forward to another trip back! I highly recommend this location... you will NOT be sorry with your experience!!!
