Last minute trip to PVR with 2 of our 3 kids, and what a fantastic stay at Now Amber. Staff met us as we stepped out of the cab with Champagne and cool towels. Check in was very quick and we were given a lovely double bedded ocean view room on the 8th floor. (Ocean view double is the category I booked). Room was plenty large for the 4 of us with huge Jacuzzi tub and separate shower and double vessel sink.
The resort is the family friendly, Now Amber on one side, and all adult Secrets on the opposite side. Now's pools (one with a rock slide, one with a swim up bar), all wonderful! Excellent location maybe 15 minutes from the airport, which is why we opted for a taxi...very quick and inexpensive.
Food was absolutely wonderful at all the a la carte restaurants we dined in. Asian twice, Mexican once, and Italian once. Lunch, we opted for the grill with good hamburgers, fries, hot dogs....your basic grill food and they had another buffet style area outside with more authentic food, also good.
Entertainment, very nice....really enjoyed the fire show!!
Plenty of beach loungers on the beach and same with loungers around the pool. Do recommend getting your prime local early on as they do fill up quickly by mid morning. If you don't want direct sun all day, there are plenty of umbrellas around the pool and palapas on the beach. Sand here gets hot during the mid summer months so bring your beach shoes!!
Activities are plentiful with volleyball (they hose down the sand), pool games, large chess board and the kids club and their staff are OUTSTANDING!! Our 6 year old had plenty of options to choose from and had a wonderful time.
We had a late flight on the return and the staff was more than kind to hold our luggage after check out, while we enjoyed the remainder of our stay by the pool. They confirmed us a hospitality room (we requested this) which allowed us all showers before we needed to depart for the airport.
Wonderful time and very much recommend!!
