Great time, fun pool!!

Overall, we had a really great time as we settled in to the many luxuries and comforts we would call home for a week. Very friendly staff! As we were welcomed we felt a little too much pressure to attend their vacation club breakfast for discounts on excursions before we could even get to our room, which as a preferred member felt a little underclass, and after 12 hours of traveling was not appreciated (I'm not a snob). Also, don't talk to anyone at the airport!! We were taken to 2 different tables under the assumption that we were meeting with our transportation to the hotel, only to find they were trying to sell us excursions for commission. Your transportation is waiting OUTSIDE the airport. Ok, moving forward to getting to our room: after being guided to our room and asked again if we wanted a tour of the resort, we we're finally in and liked what we saw! The hot tub on the balcony ended up being an immediate favorite! This was our second booking through CC and we had trade offs from the previous resort in Riviera Maya. With Now Amber being so close to central PV, expect a lot of "sand pedelers" pushing merchandise and of course cigars and weed. This is too be expected when venturing out, but got very old, very quickly, even as we were trying to enjoy our time within the infinity pool next to the beach. And if you plan on enjoying a lounger on the sand, be expecting an offer for merchandise, excursion, or weed, about every 15 seconds - seriously. I would think the resort would put up a barrier or something, but no such luck. We found "no gracias!" To be the quickest defense. One HIGHLIGHT: we took the included catamaran trip out with the captain (who let me take the helm for my BD) and it was amazing! Also kayaks and paddle boards were super fun. We enjoyed the food at the resort, trying a new resaurant every night ending with the French restaurant which was outstanding! Rack of lamb was perfect! Overall I would recommend this resort. If you've stayed elsewhere in Mex, you're sure to have advantages and disadvantages, but this place is certainly luxurious, and the views are breathtaking! Recommended

2017 Vacation

This was our first all inclusive vacation. We had a wonderful time. Positives: 1. The resort is beautiful! The room was great, the balcony was wonderful, and the place was amazingly clean. 2. The staff was amazing! I never saw a more dedicated, attentive staff in my life! I was impressed by their ability to speak both English and Spanish which made life easier. The 24 hour cafe was especially nice if you needed a little something between meals. We especially loved Junior, the waiter at poolside. 3. The food was wonderful and there were plenty of selections. 4. The entertainment was fun. An added plus throughout the day. Tracey's water aerobics class was great. Negatives: 1. The pillows! I have some neck issues and I woke up several times throughout the night in pain. My husband has no neck issues and he was complaining also. If you can pack your own, I suggest doing it. 2. The beach was too rocky to take a nice walk or even enjoy the ocean. 3. After a 12 hour travel day, I did not want to hear from the sales team. I would have been more open if I was allowed to freshen up and unpack first. All in all, we had a wonderful time!

I was very satisfied with my experience at this resort. The lobby view was breathtaking! I loved my room accommodations. It was chic, modern, and comfortable. The jet tub and steam shower were excellent. The decor was fresh, clean, and set a relaxing tone. The pools were fantastic but it was hard to distinguish the steps and setting area in the larger pool. The spa was wonderful. I had the best massage I have ever had at a vacation resort. It included an hour in the spa (sauna, steam room, hydrotherapy, ice bath, etc.) and a 50 min. aromatherapy full-body massage. The food was average even in the specialty restaurants. Servers were very attentive. My only complaint was the constant need to tip. The culture to continuously tip was ridiculous and intrusive. I would have appreciated a flat fee for tips or provide a way to include it in the final bill. However, overall my experience at this resort was great. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Nice but small

We stayed for 3 nights and the resort lobby is breathtaking. Overall it's a good resort but it's very small. The restaurants have the same menu every day. The last resort we stayed at was in Jamaica, I didn't feel obligated to tip but this place it seems like they expect it from you. First day everything was perfect. The second day around, the jetted tub had a clump of hair (we couldn't get the jet to work the first night). And we found a roach in the room. We told the front desk and they said they will make sure housekeeper will super clean it for us next day. I am not ones to freak out but it was gross. I was not able to find kayak (non motorized sports). When you ask them, they all point to the beach and say it's there.... After all, it was a beautiful resort. I will probably not comeback to this resort. But puerto Vallarta is a beautiful place. I tried not to let little things bother me.
