TripAdvisor Traveller Reviews
Really wanted to like this hotel
Laura C, Los Angeles, California

Just returned from a 1 week stay in August. We were a family of 19 with all ages. Pros- spacious rooms with ocean views, clean and updated, attentive staff, clean fitness room, nightly disco activities which our young adults thoroughly enjoyed, and easy access to the quaint town. Reason for the 3 stars was the beach. Huge piles of rocks along the shore and a lot of trash as you walked along the beach. There are activities to keep everyone entertained. Unfortunately, a few of the evening shows were cancelled due to the daily storms in the evening. We scheduled a day trip to Yelapa Island through the Apple Vacation reps. Highly recommend it. Boat ride ibcludes snorkeling, kayaking, and a few hours on the beautiful island. We also did the ziplining through Eden Adventures. A little too crowded for us but as first time zip liners, it was a great experience. if you are looking to spend time on the beach, Nuevo Vallarta hotels are better. Overall, a nice hotel with a great open lobby.

We went to Now Amber on our family vacation. We have daughters that are 14 and 19, and were concerned about keeping them entertained for the whole week. Thanks to Mario (entertainment crew member) he had them involved in activities all day. He truly is amazing at his job. The service at the pool and on the beach was top notch, the staff worked hard to keep your drinks full and get whatever we needed. The staff was always friendly, and interacting with us to make sure we were having a good time. Our room was on the 15th floor and the view was stunning. The food was fantastic, we tried all the restaurants at Now Amber. We have been all over the Caribbean, and this resort is our favorite. We will definitely be back next year. We give the service, resort, and staff 5 stars.

AMAZING HOTEL!

I went along with my grandsons 14 & 19 from Feb 10-17. We had the best time, the room was well suited to our needs, the food was exceptional, and the staff are amazing. So helpful, always making sure that we had everything that we needed. The only thing that I wish that they would change is allowing people to save chairs and not show up for hours. If you go to the pools after mid morning it is almost impossible to find a chair. We would go back in a heartbeat, in fact I am already making plans!

We just returned from our vacation and while we tried to make the best of it I feel the need to warn those looking to stay at this resort because I read the previous reviews and booked because of them but they were way off. From the moment we check into the Preferred Club they tried to get us to upgrade our room for an additional fee of course and then after we had checked in we were hit with the timeshare sales pitch. They should at least let you check in and see the room before they start the sales pitch. Mind you we've been traveling all day with our 2 kiddos. We quickly declined and asked to go to our room. Just past the reception is a food display that sits out all day...who wants that? The Preferred Club has a special bar with upgraded liquor but they never told us where that was when we checked in, but thankfully I read that on another review so I knew. Carnival is the buffet and that was the only restaurant open when we checked in. Again it looked as if the food had sat out all day since the lunch rush and we hardly ate, even my kids. The next day for breakfast the food was better but make sure you eat during the rush time when food is being turned quickly. The food at Capers and Castaway was good. We didn't get to try any other restaurant because the night we were going to the Pan Asian it poured and we didn't get over there in time. The poolside food was ok but again eat when it is first set out because otherwise it sits there all day with the flies. One day they did a poolside taco bar and that was good. 2 nights our kids wanted to go to the Explorers Club for movie night so we ordered them room service and to our surprise I think that was our best meal yet!it arrived within the time frame we were given and was hot upon arrival. The kids enjoyed the Explorers Club and the activities they provided. The only show we saw while there was the poolside water show which was pretty cool. The beach/ocean is very rocky so if you have littles bring water shoes for them. Overall I'd give the Now Amber a 2.5-3.

Not as good as the previous year

We had such a blast last year that we decided to book again for this year. So much has changed. On the plus side my pool waiters Omar and Luis were still there and as awesome as ever. The negatives were that the hotel was clearly over sold, the pool area was busy and if you didn't grab a sunbed early morning you would not get one. As a family resort I was mortified and disappointed to find huge groups of people surrounding the pool bar all day drinking and being obnoxiously loud. Then another smaller group who had come across from the Secrets side, again obnoxiously drunk and causing a fight, so bad that security had to be called to escort them back (this was after he threatened to punch my husband in the face and call my 18 year old daughter a b**ch!). Then on my last evening up in the lobby another group (drinking all day by the pool) decided to vomit all over the lobby area! Not what I expect from this sort of resort. The room was really damp smelling, but clean. Food in the a la carte restaurants was fantastic. Shout out to Luis, Omar and Canelo from the entertainment team. I am really disappointed and would not go back!
