We were staying at the Riu Vallarta and it was terrible. After 2 night there, we left and came to the Now Amber. It’s a fantastic resort with excellent service, beautiful facilities and is a true 5 star! We previously stayed at Secrets (adults only) section and it was fantastic so we knew the Now would be just as awesome! Great job and I won’t stray from AM resorts again!

Fantastic

Clean room and facilities. Choice of 4 pools, lots of chairs (and didn't have issues getting them after breakfast). All rooms have decent view of the ocean, and if you are high up on the tower that has 15 floors, you will have a really amazing view of the ocean. Main shopping close by, but annoying that cabs charge you per person and not per cab. So exact same distance ride costs more if there are 3 people instead of 1. Had a spa pedicure for 69 US which was relaxing and a treat. Found a lot of the other spa treatments very expensive. Food: Buffet- this could just be personal taste but many of the food items just did not seem appealing. One meal at Castaways restaurant brought an appetizer which was literally four slices of sausage served on a full plate of melted cheese. However, having said that, the night previous, I had mani-mahi as a main course which tasted fine. We had a couple of very nice meals at Capers as well (Italian). One day we had to call the front desk before going for supper as room service had not yet come to our room. They did so, and left a message on our phone after to ensure we did not require anything else. Family we were with had turn-down service arrive well after 10 o'clock pm. (too late for some). The beach was the biggest disappointment for us. I had read reviews which said the beach was a little rocky, so we had bought water shoes for the kids, which helped. However, the waves are not suitable for kids, way too rough. The beachfront was clean otherwise, no seaweed at all. Vendors on this beach are constant. A simple no and they will walk away, but be prepared to be approached a lot. Also, the view on either side of the resort- not the best. To one side you can see a huge vacant resort which has been gutted but not yet torn down. The resort on the other side has a lot of garbage and debris on their beachfront. The staff was very pleasant, always holding doors and ready with a friendly greeting. Overall, if you are looking for a pool and some sun, close to shopping, this may work well for you. The staff here are good and will accommodate your needs when you ask.

Worst hotel for all inclusive

WORST Secrets brand ever! This is my second experience with the brand and hated every minute of my stay. My Preferred suite did not exceed or meet my expectation for a suite. Hotel was old and looked the same like it was any other hotel room. Service was the WORST of all my experiences in Mexico. Hokiado restaurant took 30 minutes to bring out EACH MEAL (30 mins for appetizer to come out, 30 mins again for entree, and 30 mins more for dessert). Server failed to let us know that food would take that long. I would have gone somewhere else for dinner had they said something. Two tables down from us was a family that ordered their meal but never received service. They finally got up 45 mins later to eat somewhere else. Staff/room service took forever to fulfill a request. Suite selection of food was the same everyday versus a new variety everyday. Selection of food was little to none. Bartender for the suite was now where to be found during the day. I had to always ask the staff to find him. Staff never mentioned that breakfast was available at Castaway, thus I ate breakfast everyday at the International restaurant. Bartenders and servers took forever to get drinks. Food quality was horrible at every restaurant. WORST HOTEL EXPERIENCE EVER. Will make sure everyone knows about my experience. I've stayed at Secrets the Vine in Cancun and received top notch service. Will never return here ever again.

Fantastic Location

This is our second visit this year to the Now Amber and they have delivered again a very memorable vacation for us . We had mentioned to the hotel a head of time that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and also requested a higher floor with great views and they delivered. Great food and on 4 evenings we had made arrangements to dine over on the Secrets side . We love the location of this resort. We love walking every morning throughout the downtown and it's a good way to burn off some of those great meals each day . We walked to the marina and back and on route are shopping malls, Walmart and Sams Club . On most days in the morning we walked to the Malcom Boardwalk as far as the pier and back to the resort. About a 5 mile hike return . We often left after breakfast around 8 am and was always back at the resort at 10:30 am . Very safe walking around the business area in downtown Puerto Vallarta. Thank you Now Amber for a great week .
