    Christmas 2020

    Stayed Dec 26th- today Jan 1st. First let me start out by saying what type of vacationer we are. We are not high maintenance. All we ask for is a clean room, a comfortable bed and some decent food that we can enjoy the week. Second as a disclaimer we are members of the vacation club so this one of the resorts in our club. We had never been to a Now resort, always Dreams or Secrets but the price was too good over Christmas break to pass up so we booked it. Lastly we are 2 adults traveling to a “family friendly” resort. We don’t care about kids running around. There are plenty of other adults only folks here as well. The property is very well maintained. I included some pics. You can see where some trees got blown down from the recent hurricane but they have everything cut down or back so everything is well manicured. Our room was immaculate. 👍🏻👍🏻 Our room was like a meat locker. It was cold so no complaints about the AC. The mattress was very comfortable. 👍🏻👍🏻. That’s the first two checks on our list. They clean your room daily and do a turndown at night. Mini fridge restocked daily also. COVID- staff wear masks all the time. For vacationers we have to wear them to go into the restaurants or anyplace inside. Anywhere else it’s up to you. Place is at roughly 40% capacity. Menus are all on your phone via QR code at the door. Hand sanitizer stations pretty much everywhere and hand sanitizer was in the room also. You can see everything they are doing to make things safe online. Food- different from Dreams and Secrets. Not as large of a selection but we found something good to eat for every meal. Buffet is much smaller than Dreams and Secrets. Lemongrass- Asian themed food, Cibu- they say Mediterranean but it’s more like Italian. Blue water grille- American/grill food, Market Grill- this is the buffet, Fresco’s- Mexican, Pomadora- French and the Coco cafe for your coffee and pastries. For members you have the members club and a members only breakfast. All restaurants are allergy and vegan friendly. Restaurant staff was excellent. Sergio at the market cafe even came over to notify the staff working at the taco bar of my dietary restrictions so they made sure I only got gluten free food and he wasn’t even my waiter he had just remembered from a previous visit and glad he did because something I had planned to eat at the taco bar that I figured would have been gluten free wasn’t. Had some great offerings on New Years Eve, had a special dinner in one of the large meeting rooms. Even at the buffet had a great selection of food. Eduardo was super nice as well. Give a little tip and they remember you. 😁 Entertainment- very good entertainment. Take a look at the Sun Dial that is posted every day for a complete list of activities. Lots of activities at the pool every day. Live music each night in the lobby bar along with other shows. (Fire show, Karaoke etc) The Rock Revival band was excellent. 80’s hard rock music. Spa- we always get a couples massage and hydrotherapy every year when we go on vacation. Typically it’s a half a day of luxury. Sadly I can’t say the same about this trip to the spa. We booked a 1 hour massage.(50 minutes) Usually you are escorted to the locker room where you are given a robe and slippers to proceed to the massage room. We were escorted directly to the massage room where we disrobed and got on the table for our massage. Massage was light and fast. Can’t believe it was 50 minutes and maybe it was our mistake and we usually get 90 minutes but honestly don’t remember. After the massage we went for hydro therapy. The hot tub was only 92 degrees. The smoke alarm kept chirping the whole time because it needs a new battery. Not idea. Overall it was a disappointment Beach is small. Water temp wasn’t bad. Warmer than the pool. The first few days a little seaweed then it got worse I think because winds picked up off the ocean. Would like to see them do a better job clearing the seaweed off the beach so that it was more picturesque but you can just step over it to go in the ocean. I’m sure due to capacity allowed and Covid they probably had to make cuts to staff for certain things. Weather- It was chilly and breezy at night. Check the weather. You may need to bring a long sleeve shirt/pants or pullover for nighttime. Explorers Club- looks nice, lots of activities seem to be going on. Right next to water slides which has a lifeguard. All I can comment on as we don’t have little kids with us. Staff- the staff is amazing. So friendly and attentive. Our favorite staff member was Victor at the pool. He kept checking in on us if we needed anything. 🍻 😁 Adults only pool- if you like it quiet on vacation there is an adults only pool. We walked through it but we like the music and activities at the regular pool and don’t spend time at the adults only pool when on vacation. Of course there is a bar poolside Overall- would I come here again. Absolutely.

    Wedding anniversary

    Great facility. Beautiful property. Will need a little work on after covid but really great resort. Stuff very friendly and attentive. Food at specialty restaurants is really good and served like at really expensive restaurants. Good wine selection for an all-inclusive resort. Entertainment just fabulous. Night shows are ok but a few are awesome. The Elements Show, the cirques show are must see shows. Nightly band in the lobby is a great way to shed some calories at the end of the day.

    Now Sapphire

    During our week stay at Now Sapphire we had the best time! Everything was just as we expected; room, food, drinks, pool, beach, etc. but what really made this amazing was the entertainment staff!! Each one of them went above and beyond to make our trip as fun as it could be by getting us all involved with different activities throughout the days; whether it be a game of beach volleyball, archery shooting, a bike ride to town, bocce ball, or the nightly show. We even made some new friends because of these activities. The lifetime memories we made and will take with us are in large part due to these wonderful people!
