Celebratory Trip with New Fiance & Friends

We went on a 5 day trip to celebrate our new engagement. We enjoyed the amenities and food at the resort. Spent most of our days drinking and lounging by the pool and beach. The restaurants offered enough variety so we weren't sick of their food by the end of the trip. We really enjoyed the food at bordeaux and Himitsu. The only restaurants we would not recommend are Capers and Castaway. We were a little disappointed we weren't able to try Tamarindo. Each restaurant closes one day a week. We weren't aware Tamarindo closed on Tuesday and we had planned to have our last dinner at there. I visited the coffee shop each morning of my stay. They make really good espressos and lattes. I ordered an iced latte each morning except for one morning of my stay. The employee that morning told me he could only make hot. I was fine with it but it pretty much meant he was too lazy to go get ice from the next room because that's what the other employees did for me on the other mornings. It wasn't particularly busy in the coffee shop that morning either. We enjoyed the resort and had a great time with each other and our friends. The reason I rated 4 stars rather than 5 stars is because the service was decent enough (and not at all bad), but there really was no "above and beyond" factor that could make this resort 5 stars. I've worked in the hospitality industry so I'm very much aware of service when I travel. Everyone was very polite but service was not at all personalized or extraordinary. This was a celebratory trip for an engagement- not one staff member congratulated us. This doesn't bother me much but I was surprised. Upon checkin, my friends stated that we were newly engaged and requested that we be given the best room out of the 3 of us couples. They must have missed that because they gave my friends the best room- it was the same location as my room (so same view), but on a higher floor. Again, I didn't mind much but this surprised me. Last thing I wanted to mention is that the lobby bar drinks are EXTREMELY watered down. It's so nice to drink there because of the absolutely stunning view, but there's probably more water in the drink you order than there is alcohol. Drink instead at the lounge downstairs- their drinks are less watered down. In sum, this resort had all the features of a good resort. Food was decent, servers and staff did their jobs by taking/serving orders in a timely fashion, etc. However, this resort lacks any kind of "wow" factor when it comes to service.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Rather than paying typical spa rates on the resort, walk right outside of the resort. We went to the 2nd massage shop to the left upon exiting the resort. It was $45 for a couples massage. I'm pretty picky when it comes to massages and this one was great! The shop lacks all the fluff that resort spas have but the room was clean and the massage itself was perfect.

Very nice place to stay with kids

That was my second time at Now Amber; the first time we've been there last November. Compare to pre-holiday high season it was pretty quiet there; I'd estimate 25-30% of rooms were occupied. That felt pretty good except the food variety was way better in November. The place has excellent kids club open 9AM - 10PM and also separate special place for teens. Also, since the resort is pretty small it feels pretty safe to let kids to do "in and out" - you just sign them in and if they want to leave the kids club they are allowed to do so. Well, of course, depends how old the kids are - mine are 9 and almost 11 and they are pretty independent. The pools are nice and clean; the premium drinks are available (i.e. if you ask for a "gin and tonic" the gin will be some cheap local stuff but if you specifically ask for "tanqueray tonic" they will give you what you want :-)) The beach is OK for the Pacific Coast but if you are used to Cancun beaches you might not like it that much. The entertainment could be better but again, it's a small resort so I guess it's fine. The cab ride from the airport takes less then 15 minutes and is pretty cheap ($22 from the airport and $12 to the airport) so unless you have lots of luggage and / or your party is more than 4 people shuttles don't really make sense. Overall, nice place; likely to come back sometimes.

Amazing place!

This is the perfect resort to relax and feel super special! The food, view and staff is phenomenal and I will recommend this place 100 times over! I loved my experience here and I cannot wait to go back again! I did not take my children and although I valued the adult time I cannot wait to take my children because it is such a kid friendly place

First time at NOW/Secrets resorts ...Not good experience

We visited NOW resorts in Puerto Vallarta between June 15-22. This was famailiy vacation (one child 12 years old). This is our 6 times in Puerto Vallarta and 1st time at NOW resorts. Very bad experience!!! Before we traveled alsways to RIU hotels and RIU offering MUCH better service level. The Hotel amenities were OK, new, modern, safe...the biggest disappointment was service, food, activity and crazy dress code and child age restriction policy. You cannot go to many places in the hotel with your 12 years old child, like inside japanese restoration, as they do not allowed children! How can it be, in the family resort- No CHILDREN in Restaurants?!!! Food in the Buffet is bad, very small choices...lunch and dinner- No change!!! Restorants menue are OK, service better, but reserve at least 3 Hrs to have dinner...so you will be always late to the Show, if you start around 10. there is no special SHOW facility...every day they sent you new place, if raining all guests has to squeez in the small club...SO BAD!!! So i would not suggest to go there with kids! RIU is much better place to go ! IF you adults only, it may be OK, if you are OK to be alone . I DO not like our trip!!! Hotel stuff (except beach /room area) are not nice. To clean room, you need to call housekeeping every day or they never clean your room. So think twice before booking this place, don't go only for new/modern look. A lot of thinks will disappoint you . Yes...beach area is not good, a lot of stones in the beach ( Nueva Vallarta is much better at this point).

Beautiful hotel, not so beautiful beach

My boyfriend and I travel to go and enjoy the beach and that was not the case for Now Amber. First of all you have to fight your way to the beach to get through all the pesty vendors and consistently are asking if you need things you will never use once you get back home. Once you get to the beach it really really rocky and not very enjoyable. Other than that the food was decent and the staff for the most part is very friendly. We were in the preferred suites and the room was amazing. Even their "Garden view" rooms have a view of the ocean. We had a good experience but we wouldn't go back because of the beach.

Great Trip

This was my third trip to Puerto Vallarta and was definitely the best. This was mainly and R& R trip since I've been to this area and done several tours. We mainly stayed within the resort but did venture off to the boardwalk for a few hours. The resort is very family friendly with many activities for my 4 year old. Service was always stellar. No lines, no chair grabs, and the resort never felt full even though it was. Drinks were good and were made any way you 'wanted' them. Pool and grounds were always clean. Food was good enough for an A/I but I felt most things were a little salty. The main disappointment was the ice cream. It was never really frozen and always felt mushy. Just a 5 minute walk outside the resort is a really good ice shop past massage row. That made up for the poor ice cream inside the resort. So, the ice cream would be my biggest gripe about the entire trip. take yourself and your family and enjoy.
