TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
You will realize you are somewhere special from the moment you arrive. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and the service and food top notch. I would say to opt for the Preferred Club option as... Read more you get private check in and a lounge just for you. You also get some other amenities that make it worth the little extra costs. The restaurants and intimate and the food was very fresh. Love the fresh seafood at Blue Water Grill. This resort is great for families and couples. I am considering it for a vow renewal this summer. Thanks Now Sapphire for an amazing trip. Read less
My husband and I went to Now Sapphire for a family wedding. Jan 14th to 21st 2015. The lobby is just beautiful. Lots of lounging couches and tables, a nice bar, water fountains etc. All the... Read more restaurants are at one end of the resort right beside the lobby and main pool and the accomodations are all farther down the beach. We just picked a garden view room and it was not the preferred option - didn't figure it was worth the extra money (still don't when we compared to our relatives that did have preferred). We were in building 10. The rooms were awesome. Big room, King Bed, a sofa, nice balcony, large bath with tub, shower, toilet and biday. Rooms were very clean and our cleaning lady did an awesome job of making up our room every day, topping up the toiletries (soaps, shampoos and lotion) and fresh towels a couple itmes a day if we had used them. The pool was sectacular. It never seemed busy at all it was so big. Never a problem getting a lounger at the pool or at the beach. Food was pretty good. My favourite was Lemongrass ( the tossing of knives at the grill was spectacular) Blue Water Grill was a great option for lunch too. The buffet had a great selection of food. We also went to Fresco for Mexican which was pretty good, I wasn't all that crazy about the French restaurant and we didn't make it to CIBU. The drinks were fantastic, mango tango, dirty monkey, miami vice, mudslide, cosmopoitans, you name it they made it. lots of premium alcohols. Beach was nice, a bit of crassy seaweed in the water but I guess that is normal for the mayan coast. There was any awesome beach bar with swings at it and it was great. It would have been nice to have more washrooms available close to the beach. there were ones available near the pool and lobby but not farther down the beach. There was very little night time entertainment at this resort. so it that is your thing you may want to look elsewhere. There was some activities at the pool, beach volleyball and other sports you could do there. We did take out a hobycat sailboat one day and that was fun. Unfortunately I picked up some kind of "bug' while at the resort. I passed out from weakness on the beach while my husband was taking me back to the room. the hotel staff showed up right away and poured some ice water on my head and neck to revive me. spent the rest of the day in the room vomiting with chills and fever. Felt better the next day but it put a damper on the last 2 days of our vacation. Out of the 44 of attending the wedding there were 15 of us that got sick. Weakness, Vomiting, Diarrhea, fever and chills. Not a good memory of our vacation. Overall, the resort was lovely we were just unfortunate in picking up some kind of sickeness while there Read less
My boyfriend and I were gifted a getaway trip to Cancun from his parents for this last Christmas. We were SO happy with this resort! Everything from the staff, to the food, to the view, to the... Read more overall quality of the resort was just absolutely breathtaking. I honestly cannot recall a moment from the entire five day-five night trip when we were at all disappointed! Thank you everyone at Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun for making our Christmas getaway unforgettable! We will definitely stay at another Now resort if we ever get the chance. Great company and an amazing, relaxing experience. Read less
