We just returned from a 1 week stay from May 25th to June 1st at the Ambar. It's our 3rd time back to the resort and 9th trip to Punta Cana in 15 years. My wife and I have travelled to many Caribbean islands over 15 years and would like to present our thoughts for anyone considering a vacation here. Firstly, we were treated with incredible service by all their staff especially Idelin Mieses, the Guest Services Manager and Antonio (He took care of our check in process). Both Idelin and Antonio are great ambassadors for their resorts and more hotels should employ staff like them.
As for the Hotel, the Ambar is the best combination of luxury, service, dining and value for anyone considering an adults only resort. The resort is part of a huge complex which is much too large for my liking but at the Ambar and the Esmeralda (Family resort), the resorts are smaller and they occupy the section closest to the beach. The Ambar is the only resort that has more than ample space in the beach for everyone, no need to panic to get a beach hut, there is plenty. There are other 5 star resorts along the beach but many of them like Rui Palace and Barcellos do not have any beach huts which will force you to deal with the sun and lack of shade all day.
The restaurants in the Ambar side of the report are great but I would highly recommend the buffet, nothing beats their selection and quality. I would go on but there are too many things too mention but I will finish with this…It’s a great resort and worth the consideration by anyone that is in need of a great beach vacation.
