Beautiful Location

This resort makes you feel extra special as you arrive. We purchased the preferred status and were whisked through the resort to an easy and private check-in area. Our room was spacious and beautiful with an incredible view of the ocean. The service around the pool was inconsistent. Some days it was excellent and others were less than average. If you got Edgar as your pool waiter - he rocked it every time! The service in the restaurants were very attentive however the food flavors were average to good. I may be more picky about the preparation of my food so don't let this portion deter you. I love big bold flavors and most of the food (we visited every restaurant at the resort plus Oceana and Bordeaux at Secrets) didn't measure up for me personally. Our biggest plus was the beach and pools (lots of vendors selling their wares on the beach too can become annoying). Our biggest disappointment was the lack luster preferred lounge and having to get our own drinks from the second floor each time and the extreme inconsistency with our maid service. We tipped everyday and usually didn't get what we needed (like water bottles, coffee or a bath mat). None of these are major things but the level of consistent service could be tweaked to make sure the rooms have what they need.

Go to Mexico!

Puerto Vallarta was safe, friendly, and beautiful, as was the Now Amber resort. Great location to shopping, sights, and marina. My friend who has traveled all over the Caribbean with Cheap Caribbean said this was the nicest resort she has stayed in so far. All of the staff were friendly and helpful and they worked their butts off! Cheap Caribbean needs to stop saying tips are included, I don't think that is fair as these folks really work hard and took such very good care of us! I think it's only appropriate to tip your servers and housekeeping! I would definitely stay here again, it was a great trip. The hospitality, food, and overall beauty of PV and Now Amber make it a great place to stay. I hate being home!

Go to Mexico!

not kid friendly. overall would not return here

I am very disappointed with this resort. This is unfortunate as the staff was awesome. We normally stay at Excellence Resorts but they don't have any on the west coast, especially a kid friendly one so we took a chance with Amber. Big mistake. This has been the least relaxing vacation that we have ever had. Do not expect to have any peace and quiet or any downtime at this resort. I have never been to a more excessively noisy place under the guise of a "resort". They advertise this as a family place but it could not be further than the truth. First of all they have a concert in the lobby every single night until 11-1130PM. This is in addition to whatever wedding they might have or whatever Secrets may have going on too (Now is linked w/ adults only Secrets). So you have to accept your fate that you will not rest or sleep until about at least 1130. After 1130PM, you will have to listen to all the drunks or partiers scattered around the property. They will scream, sing, make all kind of noise until the wee hours of the night. I think I called reception about 5 or 6 times total during my stay and even went down there in my pajamas one time at 2AM. It doesn't matter. They will not do anything or manage this issue. I think I have seen more spine in a jellyfish. Anyway, after not sleeping at all at night, you might want a nap during the day right? Nope... you will not even be able to nap or have any downtime during the day either. The pool noise is always there, all hours of the day, also music and just people being loud having fun. You can't blame the other guests, but I am just letting you know that you will not be able to have ANY refuge from the constant noise. If you have a baby or a kid and they are on a nap time still, forget it. If they go to bed at 7 or 8 forget it. No one will sleep. You have to just accept your fate that you will go home more tired and miserable. The happiest day was the day we left. All the rooms will hear noise as the hotel is shaped like an amphitheater. Imagine taking a concert hall and putting a hotel room in the middle of it. That is Now Amber. We know this just from talking with other guests and parents. Second of all, there are 5 restaurants here but you can only eat at 4 if you have kids. They have an adult only restaurant on this property. Why? Secrets is literally 100 ft away...Also, kids under 12 can't eat at the hibachi. This is the dumbest thing I have ever heard as everyone knows that kids LOVE hibachi. Family friendly? Definitely not! Also, kids are not allowed in the hot tub and we were asked to leave the hot tub. Why? Again, Secrets is literally 100 ft away. Guests want to cheap out at Amber because they don't want to pay a premium for adult only Secrets but then they complain about kids on the property. So one night we left our kid at kids club to go to the adult only restaurant. "No because you don't have long pants". LOL ! Unless you are in a wedding why would anyone bring long pants (that are not jeans by the way) to 100 degree Mexico? It was just one thing after another with this place. Anyway, very bad time here, I got the impression that if this resort could keep kids in a 10x10 enclosure all day and night they would. We will never return here. In addition, we were upgraded to the preferred club but there was not one thing special about it to make it worth the price.

What's to Love

As of June 2018 you can bring your furry friend along!

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

All suites with ocean views. Some ground floor suites include direct swim-out pools. (Sweet.)

Cocktail service at beach and pool - another drink, please.

Watching the whales December-March, a mind-blowing (& blowhole-blowing) experience.

Los Arcos National Park - a diver's dream - is only eight miles from the resort.

Water trampoline, euro-bungee, family water slide, inflatable iceberg - all for you.

Kids, tweens and teens have their own places to see and be seen.

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.

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