Overall the resort is tired. I believe they are at the start of a remodel, but definitely little things could be improved. In the room, the door to our mini bar broke. We advised the hotel twice and it was never fixed while we were there. The sheets were worn out and should have been replaced and the bed was ok (not extremely comfortable). We had to ask twice to have the mini fridge filled (and one time they did not fill it). Our keys stopped working as well and we "called" for new ones. Ultimately we went to the front desk to exchange the keys (even though we were told they would send someone). No one ever showed up. The exterior showed some signs of wear. Not that this does not happen but if you advertise that you are a better hotel, then details should be taken care of and not left. The food was ok. We found 2 of the restaurants to be fairly good. The others were not. The buffet was decent with plenty of options and the grill was decent too. The wait staff was great and the entertainment (for mexico) was good too. The entertainment staff was really engaged. The spa was nice but not very relaxing due to its set up. We waited in a "relaxation room" prior to our massages and people kept coming in and out of doors and talking. Not very relaxing. The hydro therapy area was the same (had distractions). It was a challenge to get a chair by the pool (facing the pool) which is normal at most resorts. We upgraded to the preferred but to use that pool, you had to get in line by 9 am each day to sign up for the following day. This did not seem like a benefit to me. As a preferred member, they gave us a free chair massage (unfortunately it was for 1 person, not 2 meaning that it was meant to get you to spend money vs a nice welcome gift). The coupon did not advise that slots fill up fast and by the time we were going to use it (at the end of the trip) there were no slots available. Overall, it was a tired resort in need of attention to the finer details.

Overall very nice week

This was our first visit to Mexico after two trips to Punta Cana. Beach was not as nice nor was water as clear as in Punta Cana. Seaweed mentioned in other reviews was present but not smelly and not an issue. Service was excellent everywhere we went. All employees extremely friendly and helpful and made our stay the best it could be. The food was excellent. Checking into the restaurants took a long time; seems they could speed up that process quite a bit. Could use more of the nice floats in the pool. Also, to reserve chairs or beds at the adult preferred pool you have to stand in line for at least a half hour the day BEFORE you want to reserve; they start taking names a 9am at the adult pool. We were initially told that the pool concierge at the main pool took the reservations for both pools but that was incorrect and thus by the time we got to the right place the chairs were all gone. Should have same day reservations in my opinion. There were a few very good shows but some were not the high quality we experienced at other all inclusives. Resort was incredibly clean and excellently maintained.

Best Decision Ever

We picked this resort pretty randomly. We couldn’t have been was great, entertainment was amazing (especially the circus), beautiful restaurants with views of the beach, and best of all the staff was the friendliest! I would recommend this trip for young adults, children and seniors. Truly felt their was something for everyone!

2020 Review-Now Sapphire Ruviera Cancun

Ok, here is our review as to why we continue to vacation at the Now Sapphire year after year, sometimes twice a year, since 2010. It is a family resort. We love watching parents and their children enjoying spending quality time together. It is the best. Then there are the staff and employees which are outstanding. Instead of 100% they give 110% in service, personality, and personal service. We can never say enough about the employees commitment to provide the best service to all guests. If you need anything, they will all tell you to ask them and they willl help you with anything you request. The Sapphire has a variety of resturants which provide world class meals. The Barefoot Grill, next to the pool. which daily serves hamburgers, hot dogs, and fresh local fare. For breakfast and dinner there is the Market Cafe buffet which has 2 grills and a wonderful selection of local and international foods. The Bluewater Grill offers outside seating for lunch and dinner, Cibu which serves delicious Mediterran dinners, the Fresco which serves local authenic Mexican foods, Paramour which is the French resturant, and last is the Asian Lemon Grass which offers hibachi or order from menu options. The resort grounds, pools, and beach are beautiful. It is also a great wedding venue because there are weddings here daily. As far as activities at the main pool there is daily Zumba. Water aerobics, pool volley ball, water polo, and the best Crazy Games all which is lead by the famtastic Entertainment Team. The resort also has an Explorers Club for the kids, kayak lessons, tennis court, archery, beach volley ball, and so much more. Photos speak louder than words so hope you enjoy some of ours. We suggest if you want a wonderful place for a great vacation or wedding, come to the Now Sapphire Riviera and we are sure you will love it as much as we continue to year after year. Hasta Pronto.
