Pleaseant surprise

Nice hotel for the price you pay. I do not like big resort since you need to spend quite a while to to know the places and to move from one facility to the other, and this complex is huge. There are 4 different resorts whithin the complex, if you stay at the Ambar you are allow to go to any of the other hotels, not viceversa. I really do not like the hotel's bars close at 11:00 pm. if you want the party to go on, you need to go the Pueblo Principe bars which are open until 2:00 am. Overall is a great place to go

Very Relaxed at the Ambar

It was a wonderful vacation. Beautiful beach, attentive staff and very good food for an all-inclusive. The best ala carte restaurants were El Olivo and Don Pablo.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Consider a taxi instead of the vans that are a part of this package. $76 round-trip versus $56, but you save a lot of time.

All Inclusice Adults only resort

Everything was great. My husband spoke spanish, so we got along fine, however, most staff speak little to no English, so if you are not bilingual, you may have a few issues. Our first room had a broken air conditioner. It took us about 4 hours to get a new room and they just had us lug our stuff to the next room. Kind of cheezy, but we didn't care. We just wanted a room with air. There were no appologies for the problem either. That was a little wierd. Customer service not too great, but everything else was so nice, we didn't really care. Just a note.

Fabulous!

Fabulous resort. When the Ambar says adults only, they mean it. There were NO children around and any person that tried to enter our resort but was not staying at the Ambar was escorted off. Service was great. Especially from our maid, butler and the waitress at the pool. Pool drinks are ok at best. Lobby bar drinks are GREAT! Buffet is typical buffet...some good, some bad. We had dinner at Santa Fe, it was some of the best food we ate on the resort. Shopping galore within the Gran Bahia complex. Rooms were clean every day. We used the pool service every night. We had to request wash cloths, but they were delivered immediately. Great resort. We definitely will be returning!!

No kids allowed resort!

Resort perfect for a lazy vacation without leaving the resort. A better selection of food and actual dominican food. Compared to different trips, this was pretty good.

Great Vacation Destination

Very impressed with the Ambar. Right on the beach. Other than the Italian returant(only okay), food was great. Very clean, can't say that enough.

Easy place to hang out

Good accomodation, great location near the beach and pool, lots of food options and easy to book, great that most restaurants were not 'formal'. Terrific value for money.

GREAT STAY

VERY CONSIDERATE, CONSCIOUS STAFF, READILY NOTICED I WAS TRAVELING WITH 2 SENIORS OVER 80 YEARS. WE WERE PUT ON THE FIRST LEVEL OF VILLA 60 CLOSE TO THE POOL AND BEACH. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE MANY PILLOWS OFFERED. THE MAJOR COMPLAINT WAS THE BLAND FOOD IN SOME RESTAURANTS BUT THATS CULTURAL. DID NOT PARTICULARLY CARE FOR THE DON PABLO SEAFOOD BUT EL PESCADOR WAS GREAT. NEED TO CENTRALIZE TOUR OPERATORS. BAR CLOSES TOO EARLY FOR AN ADULT SETTING ALTHOUGH YOU CAN TRAVEL TO BAVARA BY TRAM OR WALK BUT TOO MANY YOUNGER PEOPLE. LOBBY BAR HOURS COULD BE EXTENDED TO 1AM. THE AMBAR SECTION COULD OFFER MORE NIGHT LIFE FOR THE OVER 40 CROWD.

FILLET MIGNON AT DON PABLO WAS GREAT WHEREAS THE FAMOUS LOBSTER WAS DRY AND TASTELESS. OVERALL THE BETTER RESTAURANTS WHERE IN BAVARO RATHER THAN AMBAR
