We’ve partnered with adventure, culture, and luxury traveler Dr. Cacinda Maloney from the blog PointsandTravel as she explores the kid-friendly Now Amber Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa. Join us as she shares why this unique all-inclusive is the perfect escape for the entire family.
One of the most mesmerizing beach towns in Mexico is Puerto Vallarta. Spreading out from the Bahia de Banderas (Bay of Flags), Puerto Vallarta attracts millions of visitors year-round. Cruise ships can dock right at the main marina in downtown Puerto Vallarta, which adds to the never-ending flow of visitors to this stunning city. And it’s easy to see what attracts them — from the gorgeous white sandy beaches, to the city’s history and culture, to the sunny climate, and of course, the food! This resort city is named after Ignacio Vallarta, who was the well-liked Governor of the state of Jalisco, where Puerto Vallarta is located.
One of the best all-inclusive resorts in Puerto Vallarta is the kid-friendly Now Amber Resort. This all-inclusive resort attracts all age groups to dine, play, and explore the beautiful property. The Now Amber Resort is just about a 12-minute car ride from the Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport, so as soon as you arrive, you and your family can get into vacation mode fast. Right next door is a mirror image facility, the adults-only Secrets Vallarta Bay Resort, ensuring that no matter who you travel with and what your preferences are, there is something for everyone.
Incredible Accommodations and Amenities
The accommodations at the Now Amber Resort are lovely. There are over 300 rooms and they offer a variety of styles from junior suites with ocean and garden views to a preferred club master suite that has an oceanfront view. Some of the amenities offered in the rooms include complimentary mini-bar, turndown service, in-suite safe, large walk-in bathroom with a jetted tub and shower, a balcony or terrace, and bathrobes with slippers. Looking for special amenities? Enjoy pool service, 24-hour room service and nightly live entertainment in several locations throughout the property, and oceanfront bars. A stay at the resort would not be complete though without the free Wi-Fi services and the free self-parking and valet service needed to get here.
The Now Amber Resort is full of activities for guests to enjoy, including golfing. The nearby Vista Vallarta Club de Golf offers two different golf courses so guests can find their perfect challenge. For guests looking to stay fit on vacation, there is also a fitness center, and three outdoor pools to sink into. Some of the other activities that are sure to catch the eyes of the Now Amber guests are wall climbing, tennis, volleyball, windsurfing, canoeing, boogie boarding, yoga, and Pilates. The Now Amber staff also helps connect guests with outdoor adventures such as kayaking, whale watching, game fishing, eco-adventure tours, and zip-lining. There is access to a world-class spa with hydrotherapy and relaxation room next door at the sister property Secrets Vallarta Bay. Here you can unwind from a busy day’s activities and truly relax.
Perfect For Ages One to One Hundred
The Now Amber Resort is equipped to entertain guest of all ages — especially the little ones! The Kids Club at this resort is ready to accommodate guests from 3 to 17 years old.
