We did bring insulated mugs and went through $50.00 in 1's in the five days we were there. Though tips were never expected and I never... More

Club Ambiance reminded me of Jamaica 30 years ago. We stayed at a hotel which is now the Half Moon and I loved it. We have been to Jamaica several times since but usually stay at the Ritz Carlton also very beautiful. But I must say Club Ambiance is as good if not better and it certainly is a better... More

We went to Club Ambiance the last week of March. We had one of the best vacations we've ever had. The staff is what makes the place. The rooms were very clean but basic. We did have a few hot water issues. The food was excellent and I'm a very picky eater. The drinks were great. You got whatever you... More

There were many activites to do, but you were not pressured into participating if you didn't want to. The beach was just the right size for the people there...had no problems finding a chair and getting equipment and towels.... More

My husband and I just returned from a 5 day stay at Club Ambiance in Runaway Bay. I had read MANY reviews on this and other sites and had prepared myself for the not-so-attractive outside appearance of the resort. My husband, however, had no interest in reading the reviews and was apprehensive when we first arrived, he was also feeling... More

My husband and I stayed at Club Ambience March 18-25, and can not say enough good things about it. We were in Honeymoon Suite 15, and it has to be the best room at the resort. If you are planning a trip to C/A then by all means try to reserve this room. (Unless it happens to be the same... More
