Huge complex but maintains 5* status
SeanyP

I booked last minute the adults only Ambar and became aware that this is part of a huge complex with other hotels nearby and was worried that they would lose some 5 * shine , how wrong could I be. The food was excellent as were the staff all friendly and helpful. We did tip for good service just a couple of dollars a time. Cleanliness of rooms were top notch. We took a trip so had early start and were picked up outside adjacent hotel having had breakfast there, which was not adults only and boy was I glad we chose the Amber as The Ambar is in a different class. Only downside was building work next to pool which got to me after a few days. Seaweed also a bit of a problem but the guys racking it work hard. Very impressed with hotel as it maintains 5* status despite being one of a few hotels. The pickup for trips is at an adjacent hotel and was a bit chaotic trying to find right coach so I would say to tour operators that they need to sort it out. All in all loved our holiday here

Staff is the best

We stayed from July 14th to 20th . Stay was short :( I like to thank some of the staff that made our stay awesome, the lobby staff is fast and courteous. Daritza at the beach is the Best. Juan Jesus at MEAT and the buffet needs recognition. Gracias Juan . Ezequiel at the buffet gave Us superior service always. The hotel overall we rate from 1-10 —gracias Rosa rooms a 10, pool a 10 , beach a 10 gracias Daritza, restaurants 8 , food flavors need some work. Transportation was a 5 patient is a must , it feels like there is no control and drivers kick back too much.. The directors are very nice. Hotel is to Us a 4 star . Not a 5 star . But I do recommend for anyone to visit here , all workers do their best.

Simply fabulous!

We returned this week, from a 10 night stay at the Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar and have to say the hotel and its staff are amazing.

We arrived ahead of anyone one else on our flight from the UK, following our taxi transfer. We were dropped off at the Aquamarine lobby and very quickly taken to the Ambar lobby, via one of the many golf cart type vehicles that are all over the resort. On arrival at the Ambar lobby, we were immediately asked if we would like a drink and sat down, while a very friendly lady checked us in. Once done, we were given our wristbands and taken to our room (our cases followed very shortly after). Once at our room, we had everything in the room explained to us.

The room it’s self was fabulous. Huge, with a very large comfortable (but firm) bed. The bathroom area is open plan to the room and someone in the shower could be seen from a large proportion of the bedroom, however this didn’t really effect us, as we had two rooms. The air conditioning worked well, but as it was so hot outside, we didn’t manage to get the temperature in the room any lower than about 23c, which is fine.

All the staff at this hotel are really friendly and cannot do enough for you. I had read on here before travelling, from some people that they didn’t get any service or good service at the bars, unless they tipped heavily. We didn’t see any of that whatsoever. We barely tipped at all and got excellent service everywhere.

The food at the Ambar is of very high quality and plentiful. Every night in the main buffet there is a different theme, with some of the usual offerings still available. We tried a few of the other restaurants and did find them to be very good. I would add though, make sure to go in these hungry as we found the portion sizes to the huge. We never really have much of an appetite on holiday due to the heat, therefore we didn’t finish some of the meals.

The beach and pool area are really nice. We never had any trouble getting sun beds where we wanted them, either on the beach or by the pool. There was reserving of beds happening with towels, as happens everywhere so I guess some of the best spots were taken early, but there was no issue for us. Additionally there are always people going around the beach and pool, asking everyone if they would like drinks, which is a nice touch.

There are only two things that I would like to see improved. 1. The music around the pool is sometimes far too loud. Not everyone wants to be bothered by the constant thumping of bass tones all day. 2. While we were there, on a few occasions some people from the other Bahia Principe resorts that should not have been at Ambar, we’re using our pool, beach and bars. There are security people always walking around to move these people on, but it should be something that is controlled far more effectively.

Overall we had an absolutely fabulous holiday, I would say probably the best ever. The whole experience was amazing and I am not sure how we can better it in the future. I would love to return to this hotel and hope that I will be able to soon. However the constant very high temperatures are all that is making us slightly hesitant..
