Stayed at this resort April / May 2015. We stayed at the Ambar (adults only) for 10 nights. After reading previous reviews, we emailed the hotel upfront to request a room on the third floor close to the beach and also requested bookings for the Al a carte restaurants. When we arrived we were met by the concierge who gave... More

They are presently building Ambar 3 and a second Casino between Ambar 1 & 2. Every section has a pool, swim up... More

My sister, niece and I stayed at this resort. It was wonderful! Beautiful large soft sandy beach, glorious pool, absolutely beautiful grounds. The staff at this resort couldn't have been nicer. From the maids to the restaurant servers to the hotel staff...EVERYONE was kind and helpful, and smiles everywhere. The food was wonderful. The a-la-carts are a 'must do'. Drinks... More

Having never been to the Dominican Republic or an all inclusive before I really had no expectations. I was first blown away by how physically beautiful the lobbies and the grounds of the property were. Very clean, brilliantly designed and overall very visually pleasing. The rooms are large, relatively clean and well maintained. The showers had some mildew but nothing... More

The entertainment staff was great at the pool. Everyone we met made us feel welcomed and all were wonderful to talk to. I would definitely stay here again. The... More
