Prepare to be spoiled...

Our Cheap Caribbean trip to "Now Amber" in Puerto Vallarta was only cheap in price! From the moment we landed at the airport we felt really taken care of and pampered. An air conditioned private car was waiting for us at the airport and even though the drive to the hotel was short we were given ice cold drinks for the drive. The hotel was breath taking. The lobby had an open vista overlooking the grounds and ocean, with overstuffed chairs and teak tables set amidst pools with "floating lanterns". Our check in was fast and we were in our beautiful room within minutes. The room was luxurious with a jaccuzi tub, two floating bowl sinks, a separate commode room and a shower big enough for two with a bathing bench, a tapestry pillow strewn lounging couch, elegant bed with silky sheets, comforter and amazing pillows, a full mini bar that was restocked every day for us, flat screen TV with all the channels including HBO, full coffee set-up, security safe, and more drawers and closets than you could use. Sliding glass doors opened onto our patio and swim up pool. We loved walking out the door and swimming 15 times a day! The grounds were beautiful with multiple pools and a beautiful beach, all with SHADE because they had thatched umbrellas on the beach and pool umbrellas every where. Waiters delivered anything you desired right to your lounger (we loved the amazing drink concoctions) and food and drink were always available. Elegant restaurants with amazing food, great entertainment all day and night...we felt completely pampered the entire time!!

Wonderful resort

We stayed at the NOW because we got a great deal and with no kids we had full access to the Secrets Vallarta Bay right next door as well. We spent time at the Secrets all adult pool and had access to all their restaurants as well. The food, service, pools and accommodations were wonderful at both. If you love to see the mountains and the ocean it is a perfect spot. Very close to the airport so don;t waste vacation time getting there.

Great room, not so great food

Overall the room and grounds were beautiful and very comfortable. The staff is extremely cordial and attentive to your every need. Frozen drinks during the day by the pools were very weak and extremely sweet. Don't plan on catching a buzz in the mid day sun. The daily breakfast was excellent, the afternoon pool-cafe was poor at best. Dry Hot Dogs, runny nachos, and stale Hamburgers from a buffet visited by young wet kids all day. Suggest ordering from the menu, and don't expect too much. Fish tacos lacked fish, Fajitas tacos lacked any meat, however the Fish Sandwich was excellent. Be prepared to dress for dinner if you want to eat anything other than room service (which has an hour +wait time. No T-shirts, or shorts, or sandals allowed after 6:00pm. Should have been explained in the brochure so we could have packed accordingly. Very close to the sea wall and really nice beach. Great towels for daily activities by the pool and really cute waiters. SPA is expensive ($300+) compared to similar services I can get here for 1/3 the price. Beware--- Time share selling right from the start! IF you want your spa coupons, sit through the 90 minute timeshare presentation. What a waste and extremely high pressure selling going on. Nightly shows are presented in an outdoor (hot) theater that is really nice. the daily entertainment staff do the shows. Beautiful lobby area to enjoy drinks during the evening and watch and incredible sunset.

Great all-inclusive

A great all-inclusive that left nothing out. Great drinks, great service, and a beautiful room. My only complaint was about the check-in process where they tried to sell us every upgrade imagineable, but once checked in, the place was flawless.

Stunning Banderas Bay with sapphire waters that will soothe your weary soul.

What We'd Change

Three of the a la carte restaurants never open for lunch. With the views and breezes at Barefoot Grill on the beach, though, you might not even notice!

 

Why You Should Go

It's a 15-minute jaunt from the airport. Your refreshing welcome drink is waiting.

You can walk to PVs boardwalk "El Malecon" - shopping, dining, nightlife await you.

Hanging out in the open-air lobby with dreamy views of the ocean and mountains is epic. Aahh-some sunset perch.

The adjacent Secrets Spa is available to Now Amber guests with soothing, stress-ousting treatments.

Tennis clinics are available for those wanting to sharpen their skills.

You'll enjoy complimentary green fees at Marina Vallarta and Vista Vallarta Golf Club (through June 30, 2016).

They've Gone Green - recycling is a way of life at the resort. Major points for this.
