I used booking.com and paid £870 this included daily cleaning and was during the Easter school break. I had my mother and teenage son with me and all 3 generations thought the apartment deserved 5 stars. It... More

I travel for business, and this hotel was wonderful. Very quiet, amazing view, wonderful staff, what else can I say? As others have noted here, the view is truly wonderful. Try to get up early in the morning, or be back at the hotel for sunset; it is worth the planning. Check in was very quick. They found my reservation... More

The hotel looks tired and shabby apart from the entrance to the reception area. Small is an understatement for the rooms , they are tiny and the bathrooms minute! The outside pool area is dirty and the swimming pool has a distinct rim of dirt around the water line, I dread to think what germs are hidden in there hence... More

The sound of the ocean lulling you to sleep in the evening. Great restaurants on your door step, and Koi restaurant downstairs, what more do you need. Nothing, but add friendly helpful staff and you have the Ambassafor hotel.d

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel in 2012 and this time we brought his mother with us! The ambiance and staff friendliness have not changed over the years!

Dear Valued Guest Thank you for taking the time to review the Ambassador Hotel. The sound of the ocean can be quite noisy for some guests, whilst others chose to stay at the hotel just to hear it!

Front of office staff and concierge were fabulous and very helpful. The room was very small but the view was spectacular. The restaurant was absolutely awful. The staff were untrained and uninformed. Dinner needed to be booked in advance if wanting to eat in the restaurant. Wifi non existent in the rooms.

Friends and my family recently used the Ambassador for an extended weekend treat. Having used the hotel previously for family holidays we were interested to see if anything had changed.

Traveling alone, I was looking for accommodations that would allow me to enjoy the evenings. The Ambassador served the purpose well. The views are beautiful and the food very good, not to mention the well-appointed suites. Sitting by the pool and watching the sun set was a zen-like experience. But, more than that, the restaurant staff at breakfast was very... More
