My only complaint is they would always run out of drinks. The bar opened at 10 am and they would not have beer until hour or so later At noon I ask for bloody Mary and they had no vodka for hours. I gave up

The hotel is ok if you are wanting a cheap getaway. The rooms are dated and really need some improvement. The hotel could do with a bit of a makeover. You get what you pay for I guess. The beach is lovely and the staff were pleasant.

First of all I must say this place is beautiful with lots of potential. I think this place needs new management. We stayed for 2 nights and we had to find ways to entertain ourselves. Last year we stayed at Jewels for our honeymoon and every night there was entertainment. Club ambiance had no activities for their guest. Limited to... More

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

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
