Perfect place for R&R

Nicely located hotel that is isolated from the rest of the Grand Bahia Principle's enormous complex. Fresh, well-prepared food, genial staff. Outdated gym with only 1 working treadmill offset by vast grounds, expansive sandy beach and ample pool. No live music in hotel lobby at night a minus. Overall a pleasant, relaxing beach vacation.

Winter trip

The hotel and grounds were beautiful. The food was good and the beach nice. Just a couple of pointers. Communication is difficult if you don't speak Spanish. So if you are ok with figuring things out on your own with minimal help then you will be fine. The pools are not heated and there is not really a hot tub. The ocean temp is cool but after you get in the first time it's much easier after that, Over all we had a great time.

Great resort for adults!!

This was my first trip to DR and my boyfriend's first time in Punta Cana specifically. This resort is the sole adults-only one of the 4 resorts on the Gran Bahia "campus" (I say that because Gran Bahia's real estate is so large). While staying at Ambar allows you access to the other 3 resorts, we found the best quality and value was at Ambar itself - in the food, drinks, etc. They never said they didn't have anything, including top-shelf liquor! The service was the same all around but having a quiet, clean pool (with a swim-up bar) just for adults was lovely. There was also a private section on the beach only for Ambar residents. The specialty restaurants are nothing special in our opinion; Palmyra (Ambar's buffet) was much better and most nights we went there afterwards. Room service was included in the flat price which was amazing, plus every room has a balcony so you can sit out there and relax in private. If you're looking for a place with nightlife, Congas is the only onsite club and was great on some nights, so-so on others. The one thing that was difficult for the first few days was navigating the trolley system. On the flip side, we really appreciated how safe the resort was (including everything in the room). For the most part staff was nice - Hector at Palmyra and Don Pablo was particularly amazing. While we were very generous with tips, a few dollars here and there for help and good service go a long way.

Relaxing vacation

The room was very nice and clean.The food and drinks were top shelf. The beach was beautiful but was annoyed by people saving chairs all day to use them an hour in the afternoon .the staff was friendly but hard to communicate with.If you plan to eat at the ala carte restaurants make reservations as soon as possible.They fill up fast.

Beautiful resort, but large

This resort was beautiful and clean. Not much to do in the area. Resort itself was large, almost too large. Staff was slow and unfriendly. Meals were average for an all-inclusive. Multiple power-outages. We booked a safari excursion, which I would recommend. Heard other talking about a great experience on the island excursion. I'm glad we went, but would not return (not because of the resort, but because of the lack of activities in the resort AND in the area).

Great place to drink and relax

The staff here are great and the service was unmatched around the pool. Make sure to claim a poolside chair around 8 am if you want a spot with the shade. If you get a room on the ground floor, definitely ask for one on the second or third floor. The ground floor can get pretty noisy - especially at night when the partiers are stumbling home. The dinner buffet was better than any of the a la carte restaurant alternatives, except for the Don Pablo (French?) restaurant. Make sure to book a reservation there - or as many as you can!

First Couples' Vacation

The buildings, rooms, food, pool, and structures of the hotel were great. The staff on the other hand constantly had a hard time understanding us and were constantly getting things wrong.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Call the hotel a week before your trip and set up for your dinners. Many of the restaurants did not have any more reservations for the whole week. We even made new friends there and we weren't able to switch from 2 people to 4 people. So if you want to change your reservations, do it as early as possible and at the very latest by 3 o'clock the day of the reservations.

Great vacation

The place is beautiful! The staff is very friendly and there to help whenever needed. The food I thought was also good. They offered a variety at the buffets and you could also make reservations at the different restaurants they had. Overall, a great place to stay.

Nightlife tip: Not Applicable

If you're looking for something low key this would be the place. The hotel doesn't offer a lot of night life.

Beautiful resort, great food

The setting, the grounds, and the upkeep were all outstanding. Food in all of the restaurants was top-notch. We appreciated the adults-only atmosphere of the Ambar. Only complaint is that the size of the resort is overwhelming at first, and the check-in process could have been better at explaining the resort layout and the process for reserving dinners.
