    More like a Diamond in the rough than an Emerald

    I booked the Now Emerald formally Oasis Sens I believe, before it even opened so we got an awe$ome deal. The place is clean comfortable, and surprisingly quiet, all things considered. We always bring earplugs so we can sleep better, but at some places there are plenty of load rude people, and I did not find that here. Everyone was friendly and accommodating, but I have always found the Mexican people delightfully friendly. The Italian restaurant was the best one we visited. We did spend most of our time at the buffet, and this is where I think this place falls short. Unfortunately most of my food from the buffet was cold or luke warm. The choices were just ok, I have had much better all inclusive buffet experiences just saying. Our son Michael loved being included in the activities, and thanks to Victoria and the activity team for making it fun for everyone. The beach was very clean! Barely any seaweed, we spent as much time as possible in the ocean. I could go on but to sum it up, it was worth spending our Thanksgiving at Now Emerald Cancun and would do so again if we find a good price. Thank you to all the workers there that make it a pleasure!

    The resort needs updating!

    Although it has a great location, the building needs to be modernized. Too many mirrors in hallways, the decor is very 1980’s, the furnishings are outdated, room phones are old & barely functional, the pastry selection at coco cafe is limited ( especially comparing to other unlimited vacation resorts ). But the staff & service are exceptional!!

    Now Emerald- moderate

    We read the reviews and decided to try it as we were only staying 3 nights. The check in was great and we paid to upgrade to a jacuzzi room on the 9th floor. View was amazing as you could see both lagoon and ocean. It was a Mexican holiday weekend and the outside breakfast restaurant was open. Super compared to buffet location. Dressing up for dinner was nice compared to other resort. Staff was mainly very friendly. Yes the resort has a lot of stairs, is tired looking and buffet food was moderate. Didn’t find any entertainment either. However if you’re looking for a quiet, decent beach for relaxing or walking - this location had it. Should s to the timeshare stuff. Very annoying. We were at another resort the next week with none of that. Totally changed the atmosphere during the stay. We would stay again if in the same room.

    No need to be worried

    We were a bit worried by all the negatives reviews, we had no need to be be we had a great holiday. Granted the accommodation is no longer 5* as it would have been in its heyday but the hotel is being worked on. We had a jnr suite with its own pool on the 6 floor. It was amazing, total privacy & amazing views. The food was great in all restaurants and a special shout out to Miguel & Caesar in the Carnival restaurant, Roxana in Coco and Angel who was absolutely everywhere. All in all a great trip
