Just returned from a week at the Ambar. Mar 30-Apr 6.We were very pleased. Starting from the beginning we landed in Punta Cana and it took only a few minutes to get through Customs and collect our luggage. We waited about ten minutes for everyone to board the bus and then off to the resort. Bus drive was fine. Arrived at the Bahia Principe complex and got off the bus at the Bavaro. We waited a few minutes and then boarded the trolly that took us to the Ambar. At the reception desk we were greeted by Digna. She was wonderful. Very friendly and efficient. We then walked to our room in building 61 and ten minutes later our luggage was at the door.
The room was clean and spacious. The king size bed was comfortable. The mini bar was stocked with water, pop, beer,spirits and chips. Our room was made up daily, we did get the turn down service twice during our stay. But we were fine with that we had plenty of towels as well.
Our building was 2 minutes from the pool and then another two minutes to the beach. The pool was quiet but we lliked it that way. There was plenty of activity at the other sections and we walked through there on different occasions to check things out. The adults only section was great. We always got chairs at the pool and the beach. We are early risers but there were several days that chairs were available til noon.
The buffet had a great variety. We went to Don Pablo's and had the Filet Mignon, it was great. We went to Bella Italian and had the spaghetti , it was great as well. The Sante Fe restaraunt was not great.We made our reservations on line before we landed.
The grounds are very well kept and the workers are constantly cleaning, painting, trimming etc. It was not noisy. We heard people in the hallways and going back and forth to the pool area and lobby but nothing that was bothersome.
The staff were excellent. Very friendly and helpful. Jeffery at Guest services, Digna at the front desk, Junior and Desiree at the pool bar, Natalie at the lobby bar and the lady who is the supervisor at the lobby bar and everyone else who's name I cant remember made the trip the best it could be. We would definitely return.
