Hotel is tired and in need of a spruce up. Rooms are clean but look a worn out. Reception staff do try and help.We arrived at check in time (3pm)but had to wait 90mins because the room was not ready. Food is pleasent but limited in choice. Unlikely to stay at this resort again. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.!!

I was very happy with my stay. The resort is compact with a small beach and pool both of which are close to the bar. The staff is first rate and very friendly. Evening entertainment is done by professionals and I had no complaints. The kitchen is superb. There is a good selection of food cooked in Jamaican style. Would... More

Let me start off by saying that my entire stay at Club Ambiance was a complete disaster!!!!! My girlfriend and I arrived at the hotel and tried to check into the hotel but found out that the hotel didn't have any of our information in their system. After about an hour of sitting in the hotel lobby, the lady at... More

Its a good place to chill.. The food is not much of a variety but their breakfast is very good. The best part of this... More

Before I get going, this place isn't as bad as some people on here make out. If you pay peanuts, what do you expect, caviar and champagne? Anyhoo. So, arrival at MBJ, the usual amount of chaos so nothing new there. On approaching the taxi firm indicated by Club Ambiance (CA), we were met with so much indifference and muttering,... More

First arriving at Club Ambience it was very quiet, only about 4 other guests throughout the entire week my boyfriend and I stayed. DO NOT count on the "beaches", they are man-made and are not clean at all, the staff did a terrible job at keeping the beaches clean. The pool was not cleaned on a daily basis; my boyfriend... More

Club Ambiance was quiet, relaxed and laid back. I went for a work retreat and found it was ideal for that purpose. The staff provided excellent service and did what they could to make you comfortable.

Not much to say everything was pretty basic.....was impressed by the amount of game activity there was. Dont plan to swim in the beach...Staff was friendly. Food was good but if you stay there for me than two nights the food becomes repetitive...needs a 24 hour restaurant....Property needs upgrading the bed makes too much noise when you have sex.

Stayed at CA from March 15-20. From reading all reviews we knew what to expect, a 3 star resort. Our stay exceeded all our expectations. We used the hotel's recommendation and used Tourwise for our round-trip transfers. A shared bus costing $20 per person each way. Made 3 stops on the way to the hotel and the time was about... More
