First all-inclusive experience-couldn’t have been any better!
Kaylen K, St. Louis, Missouri, United States

This was our first all-inclusive experience. We had never wanted to do one but agreed to go with friends who have done many! Everything about the week was amazing! Ate at a different restaurant almost every night and couldn’t decide which was the best they were all so good. We ate at the buffet every morning and made to order omelets were delicious. Barefoot Grill had great daytime snacks! And then there was the pool bar and pools! Jorge was our pool waiter and I cannot say enough good things about him. What a wonderful caring man and he made our stay so memorable by how he took such good care of us-setting up our chairs everyday, bringing us such fun different drinks to try, and doing anything that made out stay special. On our last day he was off but hand picked Luis to take care of us and he was wonderful too. We enjoyed the entertainment team and dancing and activities around the pool-a special thanks to Alejandra. The nightly entertainment and music was good but we were usually so tired we didn’t make it very late. It is hard to have that much fun:) We will definitely do an all-inclusive again! The problem now is do we try a different or come back to Now Amber because we loved it so much! We will for sure stick with AMResorts.

Now Amber is a great resort! There are many activity’s and they are at a good price. The food is amazing. The resort is cleaned everyday. The rooms are clean everyday and drinks refilled in the room everyday. The staff is extremely nice and helpful especially Daniela Flores , Jairo ,Jorge of activity .Claudio bartender and Alejandro pool concierge. These staff members went out of their way to make sure my experience was enjoyable and are some of the most hard working people I ever met. I will always remember my time here. You should definitely take the chance and spend some time here!

Best resort ever

Our first all-inclusive resort experience= wonderful overall

Our party of 5 women (2 of my daughters 19 and 22, their two friends, and myself) just returned from 5 nights at Now Amber. It was our first time in an all-inclusive so we couldn't compare it to other resorts of this type. We had a wonderful time and loved many things about this resort. The views of the bay with the mountains were amazing! We were only able to witness one beautiful sunset because of the clouds in the evenings, but thankfully our last night provided a perfect sunset! Our favorite restaurants were Castaways and especially Capers (make sure you pay attention to the dress code). We were not impressed by the Carnival buffet. We felt the service was lacking (we felt they were understaffed) and so was the food. Everyone was so nice, but way too busy. The Barefoot Grill next to the pool was pretty good for snacks of pizza, burgers, nachos, and hot dogs. The pools were clean and the pool deck was well maintained. It was pretty crowded every day, but we were always able to find a lounger either around the pools or on the beach. The beach was rocky as many other reviews have stated. We made sure we wore water sandals while in the ocean. The local beach vendors were somewhat of a nuisance, but it didn't keep us away from the beach. The poolside drink service was great! The nightly entertainment was just okay. We went to a couple of the shows, but we were not too impressed. We did enjoy the live music in the lobby of Secrets every night. Good people watching and drinks. Our favorite bartender was Brandon. Now Amber also had some live music, but it was mostly kids dancing. We loved all of the entertainment staff with their leadership and interaction with the guests each day on the pool deck, beach, and in the lobby. On our last day I purchased a spa package that included foot reflexology, a massage, and pineapple exfoliation. I was also able to use the saunas and hydrotherapy pools. It was an excellent experience. All of the staff worked very hard and was always so willing to do anything that we asked. It was always a pleasure talking to staff at the resort. Humberto was a standout at Carnival. Ronald at the concierge desk was very helpful and friendly. The only negatives I have are the hot elevators and the people in the lobby trying to get you to sign up for timeshare sales presentations. I was heavily pressured in the lobby one morning after eating breakfast there. I tried to avoid the lobby after that. Overall, this was a very nice and relaxing resort and we would go back again. Thank you!

Epic Family Vacation at Now Amber!

We just got back from a 6 night stay with our two girls ages 9 and 12 and had the most AMAZING vacation at Now Amber! Next time we will do a full week. We didn't want to go home!! We chose it partly based on the reviews we read here, so I am hoping to post our feedback to help other families looking for an awesome all-inclusive family resort in Puerto Vallarta.  PROS: * Conveniently located close to the airport. Loved being at our resort in only about 15 minutes.  * We were greeted with glass of champagne and friendly check-in that was super efficient.  * We got on the top floor and the view was INCREDIBLE! Seems like most of the rooms would have great views.  *ROOM was well designed and very comfortable. We were worried about 2 double beds as a family of 4, but there was actually a day-bed sort of chaise in our room, so we had that made up as a bed and it made sleeping arrangements really comfortable.  * AMAZING SERVICE IN EVERY WAY!!! I should mention we are a family that believes in tipping, so we tipped our pool server every day and tipped after every meal. The employees work SO hard. I recommend bringing extra cash to tip if you are so inclined. * WE LOVED JORGE OUR POOL SERVER!!! He really was a huge part of making our trip so special and relaxing. His service was over-the-top amazing!!! He knew how to anticipate what we might need before we even had to ask and really gave my husband and I AND both our girls the VIP treatment every single day of our vacation. It was so nice to be in the same area with the same server every day because he really got to know us. I can't say enough about his awesomeness - Jorge truly made our vacation. * Special shout-outs to the following employees who also made a positive impact on our family and our stay: **** Jorge in water sports and entertainment **** Norma + Noe of the entertainment team The daytime entertainment was JUST perfect ... not too much and not too little. Perfect mix! Girls loved beach soccer, poolside dancing, Zumba, we loved playing Black Jack. Everything was just super fun.  **** Humberto + Mario at Carnival **** Angel + Mario at Castaways All were AWESOME and provided amazing service!  **** I don't know her name but the woman who worked in the Secrets coffee shop was so sweet and friendly. * FOOD. We have only been to one other all-inclusive so we don't have a lot to compare it to, but compared to that stay, the food at Now Amber was INCREDIBLE! We had really great food just about everywhere we ate. Super happy with it all! Castaways was probably our favorite. The view was so pretty and we had many delicious meals there. * NOT OVER CROWDED. We stayed there at a time when the hotel was full but the pool and beach never felt over crowded and there were ample open chairs.  * LOBBY BAR / VIEW. Incredible sunsets and seating area and each night had live entertainment.  *PAGER system for restaurants. Most had a pager system so you could put in your name and then enjoy a drink in the lobby while waiting for your table if there was a wait. I liked not having to have reservations, sometimes being on a schedule on vacation is stressful. If kids were super hungry, we sent them to the buffet for an appetizer if we had a little wait for dinner.  * WATER SPORTS. We loved being able to paddle board and kayak right out from the hotel!  CONS (or not really cons, but things to know, and suggestions for management :): 
 * My girls at ages 9 and 12 were way too old for the kids club but couldn't go to the Teen Zone yet (had to be 13). The "tween" years are hard at resorts as far as kids' clubs for this reason. It would have been awesome to have a few hours each day where "tweens" like ages 8 -12 could access the Teen Zone? Or have a special older activity at the Kid Zone maybe once a day? We did not utilize the kids program at all for this reason and I would love to see a Tween program integrated in. 
* Beach was ROCKY. Beach entry was completely rocky and hard on feet. Water shoes highly recommended. 
 * Lots of vendors on the beach. You just say "no gracias" but you should know there were endless vendors walking up and down the beach every day. * Capers Italian restaurant is adults-only. Italian is a favorite for my kids (actually most all kids!) so we were disappointed there wasn't an Italian restaurant for families. Or, maybe have a tween + rule? I get not wanting toddlers running around a more formal restaurant but my girls are mature and would have really enjoyed it. OR, consider a part of the restaurant that is adults only, and another section for older kids and families? Just an idea...
 * Teppanyaki tables at Asian restaurant are also adults only. BOO!! The other all-inclusive we stayed at allowed families at the teppanyaki tables and it was one of the highlights of our trip. Super bummed we couldn't eat at a teppanyaki table with our girls - this would have been really fun. 

 Overall though, we had a most stellar vacation and would highly, highly recommend Now Amber to families!!! Thank you for the magical stay! We will be back!!!!
