Family Vacation

I was nervous to get a vacation online, but everything went smoothly from the initial booking. Our transportation was easy to find and got us there fast. The hotel was everything and more the service was exceptional from the restaurants to the drink staff at the bars and around the pool. We were always asked about drinks or if we needed anything. Food was wonderful and a variety that was offered. The entertainment was on point from pool games, kid games and shows that were put on every night. They had fishing and kayaks that were all included. The rooms worked really well for a family of 4 and were pretty spacious! I really can’t say enough about this experience and the hotel we started with champagne and ended with champagne and were sad to leave and would and are planning to go back again!!

Disappointing

I booked through cheap Caribbean and I was told they owned the resort so I was surprised they misinformed us… BEFORE WE BOOKED OUR TRIP We were told we had access to the secret side but found out that is only true if you have a pass for a particular restaurant. I was rudely told by beach security that we were not even allowed to sit on a beach chair on that side and when I went to my concierge she told me that I would have to pay for a pass if I did want to access everything on the secret side. Ironically they allowed us to access the gym which is on the secret side and we were allowed to spend our money in the shops there as well. Service was great all the way around Although I was not approached once by a waiter on the beach to be asked if I wanted a drink, the food was just average without ever any changes on the buffet, quality on the secret side far surpassed options & quality, even the poolside café served much better options than on Now side. Our lobby had better snacks than the buffet itself. Champagne also seem to be available without having to go to a bar but not on Now side. The beach vendors were ruthless and I understand that’s their livelihood but it was really is annoying. The beach itself is primarily large boulders and not easy to walk on & the beach chairs on the ocean are just kind of in the open without any sort of privacy. SORRY but Entertainment on stage wasn’t worth our time, but nightly music in lobbies was. I would not recommend or return to Now Amber.

The Now Amber Resort

We loved this place!!! Everyone was very nice and helpful. We had a couple of people that we enjoyed meeting. Daniel who works at the lobby bar, Santiago & Omar who works the pool area. These guys went above and beyond to make sure our stay was very enjoyable!!

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.
