Now Amber - just okay
Beverly A,

We recently returned from a week-long stay at Now Amber, Puerto Vallarta. The rooms are clean and have fantastic views of the beach and ocean. The air conditioning is quiet and works well, but our ceiling fan did not work. We reported it, as well as the two electrical outlets that fell out of the wall, four times, and they were never fixed, or even examined. The bathrooms were tiny, at least the room where the toilet was. It was in its own 4 x 3 1/2' room, and the door opened in (just cleared the toilet), so it was very hard to get in. Hotel staff in general were very friendly and helpful, if you could find one that spoke English. The pools were very nice, and food and drinks were plentiful, but not always that great. Breakfast is the best food that we had at the buffet. We ate at the lunch buffet one time (bad), Castaways several times for lunch and it was always good, Capers (Italian) once for dinner (okay), the Mexican cafe once (okay), and the French restaurant at Secrets (pretty good) twice for dinner.

Excellent variety of restaurants and exceptional service throughout the resort.

We stayed a week at this resort. We received excellent service at every stage and facility throughout the resort from concierge, front desk, housekeeping to the wait staff in all the restaurants. The location is convenient to downtown - about a $5.00 taxi fare. Rooms were clean and the air conditioning was quiet and efficient. All rooms have balconies. We would stay again. More>

The fantastic staff are what really makes this resort!

This resort has incredible staff. They are top notch when it comes to service! The room was very nice. As were the pools and gardens. Food was the best we've encountered at an all inclusive. But in saying that we did have some dinners that were not as good as the others. We didn't like the beach, and for us, that would mean we would not return. We are used to long strolls on white sand and clear turquoise water. It was too rough and dirty looking to go in. We knew that going in, but thought we'd give it a try. The other problem we encountered was the noise. It is very loud in the hallways. And also the music coming from one area would be great but between the lobby bar at both Secrets and Now Amber as well as weddings or events at the pools it was insane. Four different types of music echoing off the walls is a bit much. More>

Everything was lovely except the humidity. I love the city and the benefits it has. I am very pleased that English is spoken every where. I can't beleive about the complaints about the food. The food is much better than the food in the USA unless you're eating like the rich folks. The food is so rich you will have to use the bathroom three times a day. The transportation system is cheap if used properly. Almost 50 cents by bus to hotel from airport. Bus is located to left as you exit airport. Taxis are cheaper out of the airport versus on airport grounds. Abraham who works on the secrets side at the concierge service desk will give you all the information that is needed to have a good vacation including bargains and other information dealing with venders. The banks are the best rate for changing to pesos. You will have to make a copy of your passport because they won't make a copy for you. The hotels may do that for you for free. More>

"Awesome Resort"!!

My husband and I just came back from a destination wedding at Now Amber Resort. We had a wonderful time. From the time we arrived to the day we left everything was so detailed. We stayed from May 11 - 16. Having booked in the Preferred Club area. Our check in was unlike any check in I have ever had. We were greeted by Diana the concierge from the Preferred Club" and given a cold washcloth and a glass of champagne the minute we stepped from the Taxi. Then our luggage was taken to our room. We followed Diana as she bypassed the regular front desk and whisked us away to the Preferred Club lounging area where there was an assortment of hot appetizers and cold along with sweet treats. Our check in was handled quickly and our keys given to us while we enjoyed the treats from the buffet. All completed within about 15 min. Our room was beautiful! separate shower and whirlpool tub. The bed was comfortable and a pillow menu is offered to suit your personal taste. We also had a outside Jacuzzi on the balcony. The room was very clean and stocked. There was a mini bar with juices, water, sodas, beer (Corona). My husband prefers Budweiser. Also a snack area with three different kinds of liquor some chips and M&M's. It was restocked daily. We requested Budweiser and it was provided to us as well. There are several dining options Mexican, Asian, Italian, Seafood and Carnival buffet. Himitsu.... This was my favorite restaurant. Japanese hibachi style. the food was delicious!! Had steak and shrimp. especially enjoyed the shrimp and rice. Our meal was followed with fried ice cream. Tamarind....Mexican restaurant. We really enjoyed the food. I had the shrimp stuffed pepper appetizer and it is very tasty!. Had the flan for desert- very tasty! Capers.... We ate at Capers (Italian) and it was good but in my opinion not the best. Castaways.... Also enjoyed Castaways which is available for later afternoon into the evening. I had the "Now salad" which was good and "coconut shrimp" delish!!!. Pool.... Around the pool drinks are plentiful and the waiters are eager to take care of you. Especially like the idea that towels were readily available on every chase lounge and in designated areas. No towel cards were needed. We never had a problem finding an open chaise lounge. the swim-up bar was nice as well. The waiters around the bar took good care of us. Jose and Christian took very good care of us. Preferred Club Bar.... since we were staying in the "Preferred Club" there was a Bar on the 2nd floor which was stocked with top-shelf liquors was great!! Juan took especially good care of us the entire time and kept the spirits flowing. Although tips are not expected we took care of those who took such good care of us. Juan did an excellent job! Spa.. .there were three of us ladies who went for a facial/massage. The Spa is beautiful! Each one of us had a different attendant and we each said that ours was the best. Miguel... was my masseuse/Estetician. He was wonderful!! I told him I may have to fly back to Puerta Vallarta just to get a massage. Very Caring and goes above and beyond the expected. He knows and practices SERVICE!! the Spa is a little pricy but you can negotiate a better price. All three of us made sure we tipped our attendants very well. Wedding.... the wedding was awesome and attention to detail was great. I'm sure the bride and groom will give their own review. As a guest of the wedding I was very impressed. Mexican Fiesta Night.... This was quite a treat!! The entire pool area is set up as a Mexican town with sooo much food. Some of it was amazing!! Be sure to check out the Mexican Coffee. Very much fun and dinner was followed by the show with dancers and very pleasurable. Entertainment.... there is a variety of shows every night. I especially liked the Fiesta night and the Pirate show. Our departure.... We really were not ready to leave. We called for someone to pick up our luggage and a taxi was called for us. When we got down to the front of the lobby we wanted to take one last picture. As we stepped outside we were approached and asked if we wanted our picture taken. We said yes and expected him to take it with my camera. However it was taken with a camera that printed out our picture immediately. A nice keepsake from the trip. Then he also took one with my camera phone. Final Note.... We travel quite a bit and feel this resort is different in a good way. They are very detailed oriented and friendly and go above what is expected to make your stay a memorable one. If you are concerned about negative reviews don't be!! Book your vacation with "NOW AMBER" and you will be surprisingly pleased!! More>
