    Hey Kristin!

    My wife and I just returned from perhaps the best vacation of our entire lives, which also happened to be our Honeymoon! We stayed at Now Amber in Puerto Vallarta and the entire experience warrants an easy 5-Star, A+ rating. From the minute Carlos greeted us with a chilled glass of champagne and an ice-cold orange scented towel at valet, to the minute Roberto sadly helped carry our bags down from our room to our departing taxi, we were treated like royalty. This is something that you just don’t find nowadays and it was a welcomed surprise.

    Having researched All-Inclusive resorts for a few weeks before stumbling upon Now Amber, we knew this was the place for us once we saw what great reviews the property had received on TripAdvisor and similar sites. Compared to similar resorts the price was better and the overall vibe was that everything from the location to the food to the service was amazing.

    It seemed like every guest we met while there said they had been to countless other All-Inclusive resorts all over the world and this was by far the best they’d ever been to. We felt so lucky to have found such an amazing place on our first ever visit to an All-Inclusive resort!

    Every single person who works at Now Amber was extremely professional and genuine. No matter what they were doing everyone always responded to us with “My Pleasure.” It was almost laughable because everyone was so unbelievably nice!

    The food was all delicious and served in the most artistic way possible. No matter where we chose to eat, every restaurant felt like it was the best one on the property. We ate at the Italian, French, Mexican, Japanese, and Market Cafe restaurants for dinner two times while we were there. Every single meal deserved 5-stars. Every drink we ordered was also very delicious and the best part was the never stopped flowing until we chose to turn in for the night! Leon was our favorite lobby bartender, Javier & Jose were the best pool bar bartenders ever, and Jonathan & Hugo were the best poolside bartenders during our stay.

    Perhaps the favorite thing about our entire stay was the pool area and the Entertainment Staff. Although there was eight or so different entertainment staff, Alejandro and Hugo were our favorites! Every day they made us laugh and we thoroughly enjoyed partaking in all of their different games and entertainment.

    I could go on and on about how amazing this resort is, but alas I must conclude. Now that we’ve had the chance to experience this resort with just us two, we cannot wait to return (hopefully soon) with all of our friends and family. This is definitely a place that we foresee ourselves visiting fro many years to come!

    Good luck and have fun 🙂

    I have been to Now Sapphire and Now Jade. Enjoyed both resorts, but I recommend Now Jade. You won’t be sorry!

  3. Ashley Browning on February 19, 2014 at 11:17 am

    I would line to visit the Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun…it looks stunning and insure volleyball and soccer to boot! It would be a perfect spot to celebrate our anniversary:)

  4. Julie on February 16, 2014 at 10:24 pm

    Because I have been a visitor to Now Jade, and highly recommend it, I would pick another resort just to experience yet again the best that the Now Resorts have to offer. I’d love to go to the DR and see what is in store down there 🙂

  5. amber y on February 16, 2014 at 3:00 pm

    I’d love to visit the Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun. Wow is pretty much all I can say haha! I’ve wanted to visit mexico for a while, just can’t seem to convince my friends that it’s safe enough to go. Guess I’ll have t go without ’em!

  6. Patrick on February 16, 2014 at 3:52 am

    Wow, embedded auto-play video on a web page is pretty much the worst idea ever.

  7. Jennifer M. on February 15, 2014 at 11:44 pm

    I would choose the Now Amber because I have never been to Puerto Vallarta, and I love to try new places! They all look awesome!

  8. Karen Gonzalez on February 13, 2014 at 6:47 pm

    I would pick either the Jade or the Larimar because of the lush tropical feel it looks like they have. Athough…any inclusive is a REAL vacation! No cleaning, no cooking, no laundry….just relaxation! Just what a vacation shuold be! And if you have little ones, the resort can watch them while you catch some suns or go exploring the grounds! I hope you win! Good luck!

  9. Jan D on February 13, 2014 at 1:44 pm

    I would chose the Now Larimar Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic

  10. Michael Glu on February 12, 2014 at 8:17 pm

    The Dreams Huatulco Resort & Spa sounds great !

  11. sylwia on February 12, 2014 at 5:50 pm

  13. Crystal Ingram on February 12, 2014 at 3:12 pm

    We stayed at Now Larimar, It is the most beautiful place, the service and resort are beyond amazing.

  14. Trevor Hawkins on February 12, 2014 at 1:41 pm

  15. lorna patey on February 11, 2014 at 5:30 pm

    I vote the Now Larimar Resort. The evening entertainment was amazing, the employees were amazing. We were treated like royalty there. I cannot wait to go back there again some day. The rooms were awesome the views were out of this world. The food..omg the food. Lots and lots of it and many choices. Very clean and beautiful.

  16. twojo on February 10, 2014 at 3:29 pm

    We went to the Now Amber last year with our children and they loved it! It is a newer construction. the resort was very compact, which was perfect for a family with children–short walk to everything, easy to get to the restaurants and easy to find the kids at the pool! They are asking to go back again!

  17. natalie on February 9, 2014 at 11:32 am

    this looks amazing! want to go!

  22. Janel on February 5, 2014 at 9:23 pm

    Deep sea diving would totally be worth the extra nominal fee. Just look at the beach you’d have to go diving off of! What amazing resorts!!

  23. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell on February 5, 2014 at 8:43 pm

    I just love the one with all the watersports. That sounds like a blast!

  39. Alexandra Woods on February 5, 2014 at 10:49 am

    The Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun looks, and sounds, dreamy! Movies on the beach as well as yoga on the beach would be wonderful vacation activities! After this chilly winter, I need some warmth in my life. And, like Summer said, honeymoon!!! 🙂
