TripAdvisor Traveller Reviews
fantastic first time in mexico
JRCrownover, Eugene, Oregon
Wed Feb 03 11:46:21 EST 2016
From check in to check out, the staff was very friendly and helpful. the entertainment staff, Ernesto, Mara, Alesandro were fantastic with everything they did, Paco, our poolside server was awesome, he made sure our drinks were filled and we were having a great time. The shows in the evenings were fantastic. The rooms were clean and pleasant to stay in. where else can you sit on your balcony and watch whales literally jump out of the water less than 150 yards from the beach. My wife and I are hooked on this resort and plan on coming back I January with friends that we met at this resort More>

Top notch service in a gorgeous setting

The Now Amber shares the same beach with Secrets as well as several ala carte restaurants. It is intended for families whereas Secrets is adult only. My wife and I just returned to Michigan from a weeks stay with nothing but positive feelings and memories. The room was spacious and clean and overlooked the ocean and pools. We were able to spot whales from our balcony just off the coast. The food was very good, but it was the service and the friendliness of the staff that made each and every dining experience a real pleasure. The nightly entertainment was impressive with very talented and enthusiastic dancers and highly skilled performers / aerialists. The weather every day was sunny and 82 degrees. There was a daily list of activities around the pool areas, on the beach, and in the bay with staff organizing and encouraging participation and fun. We hope to return next year. More>

The weather was perfect. Every single employee went out of their way to make you feel welcome, and most remembered your name! I will definitely return and hope to travel to other Now Resorts. The planned daily activities gave you a chance to meet other travelers and the nightlife was varied, fun and age appropriate. More>

Another Great Visit
cl4ndrew, Falkirk
Mon Feb 01 12:48:36 EST 2016
Having returned from our second visit to Puerto Valletta 2 weeks ago, my husband and I had another great stay at the Now Amber and Secrets resort. We stayed on the Secrets side last year, opting to stay at Now Amber this year. We had a great room on the second floor over looking the gardens and pool area.... and very handy for getting to and from the lobby and pool without relying on the lifts. The hotel is always spotless and we had nothing short of exceptional service from all staff we encountered during our 2 weeks holiday. Rooms are large and spacious and kept pristine by the housekeeping staff, as are the public areas. The only significance difference between Now Amber and Secrets is children vs adults only and the cream and ambers vs slate and our pleasure colour schemes. Having to book Oceana and Beardeaux if you're staying in Now Amber is easy and no problem at all. As previous reviews, it is certainly the staff and service the make this hotel... although the facilities, location and quality are nothing short of excellent as well. From Alma and, Christina in Carnival, and not forgetting Carmen, Gerson, Ernesto, Alan Alessandro, Luis to name but a few, as well as Hector in Capers, Carlos in Beardeaux and too many other staff to mention, (apologies, i lost my list of staff names in which restaurants), we certainly had nothing to complain about. Everyone on the front desk was always helpful and courteous and gave the impression that they were genuinely doing their best to assist with any queries. We were there whilst 2 large conference groups were also on the premises and despite initial reservations, I have to admit we observed no bad behaviour or experienced any issues at all. The hotel seemed to have everything everything under control. Obviously, i cant speak for other guest's experiences. Yes, there was a bit of inconvenience and noise during the set up of a large stage in the pool area and gardens for an event but in reality, it didn't really cause us any issues. Yes, it was noisy but on the upside, the band was excellent with a brilliant set list! The gardens are kept pristine and we always found the areas around the poolside to be clean. Our only point would be to me too that a few more rubbish bins in the gardens would be useful as well as encouraging guests to return half eaten plates of food to the bar/outside grill area instead of leaving them lying all other the place which encouraged the pigeons. ... it's not hard and only takes a minute!! We ate in all A La Carte restaurants and enjoyed all our meals. We hadn't been huge fans of Himitsu last year but this year, both meals we had were excellent. The pineapple sushi was to die for. The standard at Beardeaux and Capers is extremely high and choice of dishes on offer is varied. Tamarindo and Oceana and Castaways also offer a good range of dishes that should suit even the fussiest of palates although Oceana does have a better selection than Castaways. The location of the hotel means you can walk along to town I around 15mins and another 10mins takes you to the start of the Malecon. Taxis are cheap, easy to use and everywhere! ! We also took a taxi down to Dreams in Nuovo Valletta one evening to enjoy an excellent to meal at Portofino restaurant on the Sip Savour and See option.. A lovely change and nice to see a different area. We'd recommend doing this. The entertainment and activities on offer are varied and of a good standard. You can join in or not depending on how energetic you feel.... which for us wasn't very often!! Shows in the evening are enjoyable or you can simply relax with drinks in the lobby lounge/terrace and listen to the musical entertainment there. I could go on and on and on but just read all the other positive reviews and you'll get the overall picture. There's just nothing 'not to like' about this hotel. It really is the best. We've already booked to go back on 31st December for our third visit so I guess that speaks for itself. We very much already look forward to retur to Now Amber at the end of the year. Happy holidays!! More>
