The entire property is huge, so please be prepared to take trams to pretty much do anything. For example if you are staying at any of the properties closer to the beach you will more than likely be dropped off by taxi or airport shuttle to Grand Bahia Bavaro Resort where you will have to unload and take a tram...

What a great trip! A friend of mine and I decided we wanted to take a girls trip and we're so happy we decided to stay at the Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar. The beach was great, including the drink service. A special thanks to Hensel for being so attentive to my friend and I as we lounged on the beach.... More

I am almost a year over due for this review. Sorry about that Ambar. I went with my husband and brother-in-law and his girlfriend. We checked in with no problems. It took maybe 10 minutes and while they were taking our luggage to the room, we went to the snack buffet to eat. They came to the buffet when we... More

We recently returned from a 10 day stay at the Ambar. Having stayed at Gran Bahia resorts twice previously in the Dominican, we were disappointed with some aspects of the Ambar. We liked the adults only aspect, the pool, beach, grounds, food, beverages etc. Most of the staff were great but some of them could learn to smile, mainly reception... More

Loved the resort. Staff was great, excellent customer service. Rooms are big and spacious, lighting needs improvement but good overall. No bugs. Clean and the grounds were kept in really good condition. Loved the adult only, very relaxing and peaceful. If you want to party you have the option of going down to the other resorts and Pueblo Principe; if... More

This was our first trip to Punta Cana and we chose Gran Bahia based on other reviews. Upon our arrival we were guided to the Golden Club check in because we had paid the extra money for the "Golden Package"(which was not what I expected). Because the hotel was overbooked we were sent to the Ambar, which is a much... More

We spent a week at the Ambar, we were disappointed in the food, beverages and their lack of ice daily! Service was just average! The grounds were beautiful (very maintained) with beautiful palms & tropical plants. The distance to the beach was much further than what we prefer. Most frozen drinks were premixed and in slush (Icee) machines:-( We met... More

Confusing initially since reservation was for one place and we were transferred to another. In this case, we were the winners since that was an upgrade.
