This was my 4th trip to CA.Each time the price has gone up and the value has gone down. It is pretty obvious that the current owners have no interest in any sort of major changes to the facility. I don't mind it as is but the value factor that once was a selling point is long gone. Considering I... More

This was my second visit to the resort. And I am pleased to say that I wasn't disappointed on my return. I like this hotel as it is small, Adults' Only and the great staff.

Club Ambiance needs to close, they are going to spoil your vacation. i have traveled hotels in Jamaica and this one is a nightmare, the staff in the dinning area was so rude, as if they were prejudice against black people, we were in the dining area first, struggling to help ourselves with breakfast only to hear the workers complaining...

Because my trip to Jamaica was a spur of the moment adventure I stayed in two hotels. This was one of them. What I loved about Ambiance: * Super super super friendly staff.

We have been going to Club Ambiance since 2003; generally twice a year for Christmas break and Spring break. We truly love the quaintness of this smaller resort, enjoy the staff and love the fact that it is adults only. Throughout the years we have met many, many couples with whom we often meet again back at C.A. and enjoy... More

Club Ambiance is an older small adults only resort. If you are looking for a 5-star with a la carte restaurants, big entertainment shows and luxury amenities, then this is not the resort for you. However, if you are looking for a quiet, relaxed holiday, then this people-friendly hotel is the one to choose. All the wait staff in the... More

When we booked at club ambiance, we didn't know what to expect. We stayed for (4) days.... ok let's get right to it, I'm going to tell you what I thought about club ambiance. The hotel is small, the rooms are dated. The hotel needs to be freshened up a bit, some paint here and there, the pool was ok,... More
