The headline says it all. I don't even want to write about it, I am still in shock of having paid out so much money to stay 10 days in a stinking, filthy , rotten tip of a hotel. I wish I had taken notice of all the negative reviews on this site. I can only imagine the positive reviews... More

I stayed at the Ambassador for 1 week recently (mid-October) and wasn’t expecting too much after reading the previous reviews. However, all considered, my assessment is that this hotel is probably one of the better 3* hotels on the island and at just over £10 per person per night I felt that a really good service was given for the...

Reading all other reviews of the Ambassador, i knew what to expect.

There are a... More

It's not a first-class place but adequate for the purpose. Nice view from the rooms and the service is perfect. The pool is just a bonus. Quiet and peaceful location and many attractions nearby. Not far from the bus stop and within easy reach. Was cleaning our room every day, bed linen, towels change. The Internet Pay unfortunately, which I... More

The room was big enough for two ppl with a chest of drawers, a decent size wardrobe and two beside tables but no fridge which could be a problem in the summer heat but a/c was free. The bathroom was the size of a walk-in wardrobe so a bit tight with no hair dryer or space for toiletries. Rooms cleaned... More
