TripAdvisor Traveller Reviews
Lied, said they refunded my card but didn't
Jade8915, Los Angeles, California

This review is based on my experience with the front desk ladies who pressure you into doing the time share presentation & the managers from time share office. After a fast check in we were asked if we wanted to attend the presentation, we immediately said NO. We were offered $150 credit for the excursion we wanted to take. My husband still said NO thank you. Then the lady offered us 2 for 1 massages valued at $170 each. So we said ok because the was a savings on 2 things we were going to do anyway. So they charged my card $170 for the massage in advance and gave me a spa voucher for $170. The next morning we attended the presentation as promised. We were given the credit. I called the spa for appointments and they told me the special was 2 for 1massage for $120 but I could not use the voucher we were given. So I went downstairs made a stink. Long story short they played like they gave me a refund, credited my card. My husband and I did not get the massage. However THEY LIED the receipt they gave me was in Spanish so we didn't know what it said. But now 2 weeks later no refund has been made. They did not refund my money, they only told me that to get me out of their face. It's been a couple weeks and I can't find the receipts so my loss. I can't stand dishonest companies! DO NOT TRUST THEM! DO NOT DO PRESENTATION. These people are crooks and play like they don't understand English when you have a problem. We are out of $170 and no massage.

Overall... very good! Some small issues that should be addressed to give 5 star service.

We have just returned from a two week visit. After a super long flight we were greeted with smiles, cold towels and a drink. Check in was quick and easy, they initially couldn't offer us a room with 2 doubles and only a king size bed, but were told that we could move to another room 2 days later if we wanted, which we did and was managed easily and smoothly. The rooms are lovely, most have an ocean view, though I think they class floor 7 and above as full ocean view. The views in the main block look as though they have a better view than preferred. I made a habit of opening the curtains completely every time I left the room so when I returned I was greeted to the stunning view. There can be a slightly musky smell, but I took that as the climate, so I put the fan on whenever I was in the room and the smell was always gone within a couple of minutes, easily dealt with. There is a mini bar that is restocked daily. The towels were a bit hit and miss as to how many we got every day, and that included bath/hand/flannels. It kept us amused seeing what housekeeping would do each day, we could always ring housekeeping if they didn't give us any towels and they were delivered straight away, which was great service. There is supposed to be turn down service between 5pm and 10pm, a number of times they came after 10pm or didn't come at all, not a major thing, but if it's advertised, best to keep to times. We also reported a plug socket in which the covering had come off towards the end of our holiday, this was behind the sink and we were concerned because of water splashes. We reported it twice and nothing was done about it, and I'm not aware if anyone came to look at it. The pool area is busy, particularly on our first week, but we are early risers so didn't have a problem with beds. There was a lot of reserving beds, however after about day 5 you could see the hotel making a concerted effort to remove towels on reserved beds if no-one had been seen for a while. So they are clamping down on this. That said, if you came out at about 3pm, there were usually beds and the sun stays out so late that I preferred being out at this time. The pool waiters were so helpful, particularly Omar and Junior, always had a smile on their faces. The first week, the music by the pool was far too loud, however, this was lower on week 2 so I assuming that the management listened to complaints and acted on them which was very good. Restaurants were mostly good, with a wide selection. Adults can eat at any restaurant across Now and Secrets, though you need to book at some on Secrets for numbers. The food at ‘Bordeaux’ is absolutely amazing and I would recommend this to every adult staying at Now. The only negative was the Italian 'Capers' restaurant, the food here was absolutely terrible. I was given a piece of fish that was not cooked and could see was actually bad. I did not eat it at all, and the waiter did not want to hear about it and tried to brush aside concerns. Needless to say, we left swiftly and did not return. 'Castaways' restaurant by the beach was one of our favourites, the food was really good, we went back for our last night, however, actions of the waiter made this a disappointing meal. Our main courses were brought out before we had finished entrees, and so asked them to go back to the kitchen for when we had actually finished. They were brought back as they removed our entree plates and mine was actually cold. We mentioned this to the waiter, who did return to the kitchen and brought me a new one, however, from this moment, we did not get a smile from him or barely two words, he did not even acknowledge our 'goodbye and thank you' when he left. This left a very disappointing end to our holiday. The hostess walked past us as we left and we spoke to her and she was wonderful in actually listening to us and wanting another opportunity to give better service, however as we were leaving the next day this was not an option. So overall this trip was wonderful, the staff were (mostly) wonderful people who could not do enough for you. It was possible to walk to the malecon if you are physically able, it took us about 30 mins and definitely worth a visit. Puerto Vallarta was a wonderful town, with wonderful people and I look forward to returning, and I will be staying at Now Amber again.

nice place to stay for a wedding

I went for a friends wedding in a group. I was treated very well and would stay there again. The staff was beyond helpful and kind. The service was good. The room was beautiful and kept clean. There was entertainment everyday and night. It appeared to be a well managed facility. I would recommend it as a wedding destination. The wedding I was at was awesome and every detail taken care of. The food was great and the some of the staff even made our spanish coffees for Us.

CĂ©sar Vega makes this the best resort in Puerto Vallarta!

I am a travel agent with hundreds of bookings for clients to resorts all over the world. No concierge has ever been able to top CĂ©sar Vega, the concierge for Now Amber (and the Secrets Vallarta next door). Every person who travels to this resort feels special and had their requests met when they are dealing with CĂ©sar. At the Now Amber, my clients who recently came back were celebrated with an amazing birthday trip and the resort went above and beyond what is expected. This is an amazing resort that has top shelf food and drinks, an amazing beach and rooms, and even better service! CĂ©sar easily makes the Now Amber the nicest resort in PV.

Almost perfect

Traveled with family including kids- 5 and twin 2 year olds. March 13-20. (Experienced all inclusive vacationers in Mexico and Dominican usually staying at AM resorts because of no bracelets, no restaurant reservations, and no towel cards.) The scenic views in this resort are some of the most beautiful I've ever seen. Weather was great-sunny and very little humidity with a breeze, no rain. Stayed in preferred junior suite. Noise was not an issue. Bathroom has nice sliding doors for privacy. Location is close to airport and walk able to town. Tip: healing hands massage to the left out the gate, wonderful! 1 hr deep tissue $25 plus tip Cons -Lack of pool towels -Need to reserve pool seats by 8am -Entertainment shows for kids -Rocky beach, frequently closed for swimming because of current and jellyfish -photo pricing -pools a little small -too many vendors on property in evening and at the beach -pigeons around pool Loved -All restaurants bourdeaux (secrets-need to reserve a spot, only 20 now guests per night), himitsu- kids can sit outside of tables and still get same food, tamarindo/ Mexican, capers/Italian, castaway was our least favorite but shrimp tacos tasty. -kids pool with slide -service friendly and easy to communicate -alcohol Bacardi, 1800, Jim beam, house red wine and champagne decent quality -coco cafe for lattes -sports bar for march madness basketball -clean -small, easily accessible -never had to wait long for elevator and all seemed to be working properly -explorers club with pager, secure and safe/ my daughter begged to go more often, they even give each kid a cute backpack and tshirt -st pattys day celebration with foam pool party and beer drinking contest -preferred lounge with buffet and bar Overall I would definitely recommend this resort if you don't mind a small setting with a rocky beach. The views, service, and food/drinks are top notch!
