Nice Anniversary Trip

The lobby's water features, pool and beach were all beautiful but we've been to the area before so that was expected. What elevated this trip was the unexpectedly good meals in all the restaurants and genuinely friendly, helpful (and fast) staff throughout Now Sapphire. We choose a standard junior suite and it was just as advertised on their website; large, well appointed, clean and comfortable. We'll definitely return and give it a strong recommendation. M&J.

Go early or after 8pm and the waits are very short. Also, don't skip the French rest. It was great and service was too.

Our First Vacation

Food was great! Beautiful surroundings. The only bad part about the whole trip was the high pressure selling. It seemed the whole time we were there someone was trying to get us to buy into their resort. Even on the day trip for shopping. Trip leaderctor made a speil on how wonderful this certain place was to shop. When we got there we were expected to hang around for a tequilla tasting. Turns out the director's family owned the place. I felt like we were being herded like cattle most of the time. But the shows and staff were great. Will not go again to Cancun anytime soon.

Couples getaway

This was a nice place. Close to the airport, about a 15 minute drive. The food was good and no reservations for the specialty restaurants was nice. Lots of weddings going on while we were there. People get up very early to get there chairs reserved, so if your want to sleep in you won't get a shaded area. Service was just okay, have had better, but not bad. Great snorkeling out of Puerto Morelos. We took a great sail, snorkel trip. This was a good relaxing trip and we had a good time.

Great place!

Myself and my boyfriend went for a week getaway. It was amazing. Food was good for an all-inclusive. Favorite restaurant sas cibu. Breakfast buffet in the morning were good and nice options for lunch. The pool activities everyday were fun and entertaining. Luis at the pool bar is great. Plenty of beach space. Not too big of a place which was nice. Never overcrowded anywhere. Not far from excursions. Beach was beautiful, no rocks or coral.

Perfect Beach, Beautiful Resort, Friendly Service!

Better than expected! Pristine beach, long stretch of beach, huge sprawling swimming pools. Food was great with 6 restaurants to choose from every night- no reservations required. All inclusive food and drinks, and room service. Private dinner on the beach was beautiful. Entire resort is sparkling clean- rooms are very well kept, with marble floors throughout. We had an oceanview room with a jacuzzi on the terrace- definitely worth the extra $$$. Spa was very clean and has many amenities and services. Service throughout the resort was great, accommodating and friendly. People working there looked very happy to be there. Overall, you cannot get better than this for the price. We LOVED outrstay and were reluctant to leave!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

40 minutes away is an excursion called Xcaret where you get to swim in 3 underground rivers, snorkel, and scuba dive. For $139 pp for Xcaret Plus (less if you have deals from your hotel), you get round trip transportation on an air conditioned bus to Xcaret. There is so much to do there! After all the activities, you can walk around and look at the wild animals or just lounge on the beach there. There is an unlimited lunch buffet included with seafood or steak, etc. The show at the end of the night is specatacular! Bus picks up at 8am and returns by 6pm or if you stay for the show, you will get back to your hotel before 11pm. Well worth the time and money!

Now Sapphire

I was there for my sister's wedding. It is a beautiful place with a very helpful staff. My only real complaints are the lack of cold air conditioning and the restaurants were too small. The buffet was really nice but the waiting time for the other specialty restaurants was way too long for any party more than four.
