I stayed for a week end of October in Now Amber Puerto Vallarta. Food was great at the buffet but all the a la carte restaurants could not make us satisfy maybe I expect to much.
Room had mold smell at the beginning but they handled it with aroma spray so it was ok. Modesta took care of us with many reasonable promotions with spa, city tour and so on. She was very kind and enthusiastic we liked her.
It has amazing view everywhere you go in the resort, and we enjoyed entertainment a lot such as shooting rifle, beach balloon game and etc. Humberto with his team who are in charge of entertainment activities in the resort, were doing great job and we had blast with his amusing games with many people. He was very energetic and passionate about his job. If I have chance to go Puerto Valllarta again, I will definitely stay in Now amber or Secrets. I recommend.

Room Tip: near the elevator, garden view is good enough

Not sure where to start , but this hotel has taken luxury to a different level . I loved the pool bar , and the castaways restaurant which was directly by the beach , so you could hear the waves whilst you dine . The hygiene was impeccable as was the service and the availability of food . There was a magnificent ambience about this hotel which is incredibly serene and soothing .
I had 2 "hydrotherapy sessions " with a valet . I'm hooked ! And will be booking my next trip with this hotel directly , it's only 10 min from the airport .

We looked forward to a week of total rest and relaxation and Now Amber delivered on both. We booked through Costco and went with the Preferred package. This turned out to be a really good decision as we were in a smaller, separate building but still on the grounds. We also had a small buffet downstairs which was handy for those mornings when we didn't want a full breakfast. There was a problem with check in as they kept insisting we were at Secrets, not Now Amber but that was quickly fixed.

Our room was very good, with the promised partial ocean view. It was clean, well equipped and we had no issues with air conditioning. There was one night where they had turned it off to do maintenance but we weren't bothered with that at all.

We ate at the Mexican restaurant and the Asian restaurant twice each and both were good experiences. During the days, we parked ourselves under a palapa and had great beach service from the waiters. We took our own insulated mugs which meant our drinks stayed colder. The pool was in great shape and we had no issues with families on the weekend. The beach has been built up so you can definitely walk on the upper part where the sand is clean, but along the water, there are a lot of small rocks.

What keeps this from being a five star review was the housekeeping. Several times during the stay, we had to almost beg them to come up and change the room. We left tips every day, and we didn't leave huge messes for them to clean, so I'm not sure why this was a problem, but for us, it was. Also, the shower door doesn't keep the water in the shower. We had to put a towel at the bottom of the door to keep it from leaking out. Again, not a big problem, just a bad design problem.

Would we go back? Yes, we would. The staff was friendly, accomodating and overall, the resort was a good choice for us. We will probably stay on the Secrets side next time and upgrade to an ocean view room.

My husband and I Are now staying here from Friday to Monday. This is the hotel hosting out friends wedding. I honestly failed to ask more questions before booking. This is a family hotel meaning there are kids all over with loud music on any of the pools which by the way the hotel have missleading pictures on the web because they show you more pools but those are the next’s door hotel (secrets hotel) It is not worth the money. The food is gross and the service is meh. I dont like all inclusive hotels in first place, but for once I thought I would be surprised. I am more that dissapointed. I am looking for another hotel right now. Ah the beds! We are a couple, in a double bed room on which beds a full size! Not queen not king. I hate it. Concierge is a b*.

We stayed here for a week for our anniversary. I’ve done many all inclusives In Puerto Vallarta. We had mold on our phone and our ceiling! I took the pics and presented them to the front desk. They were suppose to have someone clean it but didn’t. I sent an email after we returned home and was offered 2 nights free. I asked if they were paying for air! 2 nights really? No partial refund nothing. Very disappointed. Carlos Visneros was the guy who emailed me. Not staying here again. Customer service is horrible. They say top shelf alcohol but fail to mention you need to join their club to get it. Ugh!
