Spent a week at the ambar in the beginning of January. The grounds were fabulous and I give thumbs up to the gardeners. The rooms were nice and clean. The food in the buffet was great. The Italian and Mediterranean restraunts were terrible. In fact I ordered a $20.00 bottle of wine and it was the worst red wine I... More

Travelled with Thomson from the UK for Christmas getaway - 2 adults both 50 years old - well travelled and young at heart !! On arrival at the airport you have to pay $10 per person entry fee and are thermally scanned in case you have swine flu ! Keep $20 each for departure tax. The transfer coach takes you... More

Reading several other reviews for this property on trip advisory, my case is not a whole lot different. If you decide to go, take the advise of others...DON'T BRING CASH. It will be stolen from your safe by staff members. I have traveled all over the world for my business and this is the first time I have had anything... More

ARRIVAL: Arrival was very well organized. We knew that we would need to transfer from the Bavaro lobby to the Ambar and they had transportation... More

We just returned from staying at the Ambar and while our first impression was very good, it quickly changed when after the second day. We had experienced numerous issues getting into our room because our keys seem to work intermittently. The repair man seemed to fix this issue but later the same day we could not get into our safe.... More

Good day (sorry about the long review); We read a lot of reviews before picking this place and we did our research. So, I am making my contribution as "thanks" to everyone who helped us and to help others. Two healthy and active adults traveled from Victoria, BC, Canada, to the DR. It is a long trip for us because... More

We have stayed previously at the GBP Coba in the Mayan Riviera which we enjoyed very much, and thought we’d like to... More
