Will be back

The staff at this place is always smiling and eager to help. The preferred tower upgrade is well worth the extra money. I enjoyed my stay very much.

Overall good, but not very relaxing,food just okay

Overall, the hotel was nice and located in a very convenient spot for going out to other sites in the area. For an all-inclusive property, despite the rave reviews, the food was just okay and without much variation. The pools were good, and the beach convenient. Because of the layout of the hotel, it wasn't very relaxing (see below). Relative to our stays at other all inclusive resorts in other parts of Mexico, the Now Amber was just okay. It was fine one time, but we won't go back. -------- Why not relaxing? The hotel is big, tall, and sprawling. What that means is that every time you want to do anything, it takes at least 15 minutes to get there. You have to wait for one not air conditioned elevator and sometimes two depending on where you're going, and given the number of people, they are often full. It's like catching a city bus during rush hour, which is a total buzz kill. Also, they have music going LOUDLY every night of the week starting at 10pm. What? We were on 14, one floor from the top, and far from the lobby and neither us nor our kids could sleep the first night until the music shut off at 11:15pm. Food - Because the hotel is so big, the main restaurant is big, impersonal, and always full. Again, you feel like you're in rush hour somewhere. The food overall at all the restaurants was average at best. There was a lot of choice at the buffet, but the quality and vibe made it feel more like a dorm cafeteria than a restaurant. The restaurant adjacent to the pools does not allow you to eat there in pool clothes. What? You are relegated to the hamburger / hot dog stand if you want to eat while spending a day at the pool unless you want to change into dry clothes. Overall the food and restaurant atmosphere was lacking any kind of Mexican resort / beach feel. It could have been a cafeteria anywhere. The specialty Mexican and Japanese restaurants were just okay as well. Oh and if you want seafood, you'd better like Mahi Mahi because that's the only fish they served in the 8 days we were there. Yes they have shrimp and maybe squid as well. You could also get small pieces of frozen salmon if you asked. The all inclusive drinks again were very average - even the beer. It was fine, but definitely not between 4 and 5 stars as the reviews would suggest.

Very nice except for salespeople on commission

The hotel an staff are very nice, the room was excellent, the location and hotel amenities were beautiful. The entertainment was really awesome, I loved the pool activities and the night shows. The only thing I did not like is the having so many salespeople offering vacation clubs, time shares or whatever. You could not ask for something without being offered some outrageous fee for an additional service, whether it be the spa, the wines etc. I would recommend that the administration pay the staff more, and not have them on commission, it would make the hotel guests feel much more valued and respected.
