My husband and I stayed at the Ambar property for our honeymoon. We love Punta Cana and wanted to come back and try a new resort. This resort did not exceed our expectations. We arrived on a Saturday evening. Upon arrival, we were dropped off by our car service at one of their closed resorts. The staff person did not greet us to let us know the process or how we would get to Ambar, so I had to ask one of the other guests who was waiting for the next golf cart to arrive for details. It was then that we discovered we would be transported via golf cart to our resort. Once we arrived at Ambar we checked in and I requested special accommodations (roses, champagne, etc.) for my honeymoon. I was told that they would handle it, but it was never done. There is definitely a lack of effective communication and consistency. We weren’t given a welcome drink on arrival, we weren’t properly informed about the location for entertainment events, and staff failed to tell us about missing food items when ordering in the restaurants. The customer service at Ambar has room for improvement, but they did a great job keeping surfaces sanitized. I saw staff constantly cleaning surfaces inside the hotel. They’ve created a touch-less buffet system, masks are required when walking around indoor spaces, and temperatures are checked when entering restaurants. We felt safe at the very least. Overall, our experience was okay. We enjoyed our time at the beach and pool and the 2 nights of entertainment we we

Birthday Vacation Ruined!!! I decided to take a chance and stay in the luxury ambar despite reading a few negative reviews. It was incident after incident and a complete nightmare. The first shocking incident was when a security trespassed into our patio which is part of our personal room, in order to yell at us. He had no respect for me being underdressed, a horrible person. After this I spoke with one of the managers, Mr. Johnjairo, and he addressed the situation. After a day, I was offered by one of the guest services supervisor, Giofanny, a “complimentary” beach dinner for my husband and I. I was very specific saying that it was my husbands birthday. The day came and no dinner was prepared. They forgot about it carelessly. Everything was a lie, they had given us that hope in order to keep us satisfied with the security situation, and never came through. On the day of my husbands birthday I had to rush and order some food and pay an extra $400 for a bare minimum decent dinner, since all the a la carte restaurants were booked up days in advance, and the only thing available was the buffet. it’s extremely difficult to get a reservation at the restaurants unless you book a week beforehand. The only restaurant that’s worth going to, is the hindu restaurant and the Mexican restaurant, all the rest of have a horrible quality of food and are not worth your time. Despite this, around the hotel, all is clean and being consistently sanitized. Inside of the room and beds

The atmosphere was great, the best out of all the resorts we browsed through. The food was really good and service was good. The drinks were good around the resort. We liked the Ambar the best out of the sister hotels on the same property. If you have kids, the Fantasia hotel on the property would be perfect. But in our opinion, the Ambar was the nicest. The layout was the best, it was right next to the ocean and it was just really chill. Bring lots of sunblock though. Try not to buy that stuff there because it’s really expensive. I would totally go back to that resort. I wouldn’t even try another one in the same area.

The food is excellent. Great spot on the beach and the pool is very nice. Drinks are very good. Beds are a little firm, and the pool closes at 6 which is a little odd. Overall a wonderful experience.

This was our 1st trip to Punta Cana, and also 1st time staying at a Bahia Principe Resort and it was phenomenal. Myself and my wife have been all through the Caribbean and have stayed at many all-inclusive resorts, and I'd put this up there with one of the top 3. We stayed at the "Ambar" adults only section of the resort, and it was great. There were a few minor bumps along the way, however the good absolutely outweighed the bad. Also, we were there with 10 of our friends, and I also have Stage 4 Cancer, so I can be somewhat needy-demanding (mostly due to my illness). Here are the details... The Good: - The service and staff was great. We spent most days at the beach with our friends, and the service was great. We never had to wait long for a drink, and there were 2 twin brothers (Jensy and Jefry) that took care of us like we were family. - The property itself was clean and well maintained. The beach and pool in particular were some of the best I've seen. The beach had plenty of seating and a good deal of shade because of the many implanted palm trees and umbrellas. - The food at the restaurants was great. In fact, we ate at Limbo twice, and I still keep raving about how great of a meal it was. The bad: As I mentioned, not much...the only 2 things that I'd say is that the restaurants were tough to get reservations at (I'd recommend doing so before you arrive). The only other minor thing, was that the iron in the room did not have a "steam" function. Great!
