I have been to CA at LEAST four times in the past year. I love the staff there! The hotel is small, the food is good, the rooms are clean, and the staff are VERY good to me. I travel alone & I always feel comfortable there. The beach is small, but large enough for the amount of guests, and... More

My wife and I just got back from a week's stay at Club Ambiance and we had a ball! I implore future guests to be open-minded when you read these reviews because they are usually indivualistic in content.We read reviews before we went and found most to be accurate,and a few totally biased.We found the staff to be most accomodating...

The resort is pretty. Yes, the beach area is small. Since just about every review mentions this, there should be no surprises! The staff was very friendly and accomadating. Some of the male staff was a bit too friendly, if you know what I mean. I found this to be uncomfortable. I did find the entertainment staff to be annoying... More

I have stayed at Club ambiance many times (4 times actually) and have always enjoyed it, and look forward to returning. It has always been a nice break for me and my wife. The usual good food and drinks service is consistent.Granted that some refurbishment is needed,but that is evidently an on-going situation,and the property is improving every time I... More

My wife and I were married at Sunset Beach Resort in August, 2004, and then honeymooned at Club Ambiance for a week. While we were initially surprised by the small beach, we were ultimately very impressed with the resport and its very intimate appeal. The resort was completely booked for the week we were there, but lounges were always available... More

My husband and I just got back from CA and it was amazing! When we got there our room was ready and we decided to change our clothes(it was sooo hot!). Our room was right on the ocean! It was like our own private beach. There was so much to do, from "Battle of the Sexes", to crab racing, it... More

My wife and I just got back from CA on 11/04. After 6 hours of flight time and the 1.5 hours of bus ride getting to the resort was a true surprise. We were greeted with a warm welcome and a nice fruit drink. The ride to the resort was long but very interesting. You get to see how the... More

We arrived at CA a little before noon on 10/21/04 and were greeted with lovely smiles from the girls at the desk, and a cold tropical drink from someone. Within an hour our room was ready even though they say check in isn't until 3:00 pm. I had done the upgrade while booking this trip, to our delight our room... More
