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.

Great Time and even Better Timing

Had a great time in the DR only issues we had were the food. Left a little something to be desired. They did have a good BBQ joint available but too bad we didn't find out till second to the last day.

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!

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

our honeymoon

this was our honeymoon...it was great. We enjoyed everything they had to offer...the beach, food, drinks, pool bar. The entire resort was very clean, even the gym...although it did not offer a lot. In a resort this size, I feel they should offer more at the gym. We didn't go on any excursions because we just wanted to relax and not have to be anywhere at any specific time. We had our pics done by a professional photographer offered at Ambar...they were absolutely amazing!! We stayed at Ambar, but went to Bavaro to eat everyday and hang out in their lobby every evening. The food variety and the nightly entertainment was much, much better...which I found odd because the Ambar was adult only, where as the Bavaro allowed children. One would think that the entertainment would be better for the adults only hotel. The Ambar buffet was not very impressive at all...the Bavaro, on the other hand, was great. Our room was nice, but our phone was broke, we had to request wash cloths everyday, and the shower leaked.

Great Honeymoon

Hotel staff is amazing and very attentive at all times, the overall cleanliness of the premises are immaculate including garden and common areas. We stayed in the Ambar which is adults only- definately worth it. Not as luxurious as Esmeralda but having the benefit of using all other Bahia Principe hotels unlike the other guests which cannot use the Ambar was as an advantage. The beach is turquoise and the sand white and clean. Only drawback is the food is not that great, it barely has seasoning for my and husband's taste. Also hotel vendors will do anything to sell you anything overpriced.
