My husband and I stayed at the Ambar from June 15th- June 29th. We had a fantastic time. We were very pleased with all aspects of this hotel. From the the moment we arrived we were greeted with fantastic staff. Teresa in the lobby was the first person to see us and offer us a drink, we found her so pleasant and happy after having just arrived. Our room was great, we were in building 66, which was very close to the lobby. My husband is very active and found the gym and daily volleyball to be right up his alley. We were pleasantly surprised by the variety of food that was available at the buffet daily We went on a day trip to Saona Beach with a catamaran and had a fantastic day. We did not actually go into the pool but spent everyday at the beach. All of the staff at the beach were fantastic, but....we have to give special mention to Kelvin as he made our whole trip. We needed to relax, and that's exactly what we did. we went to the bavaro a couple of times and enjoyed their buffett...as we met new friends and enjoyed their company there. Having never been to the Domican before, my husband and I are now planning next years trip to visit the Ambar again to enjoy ALL that it has to offer... HAD A FANTASTIC TIME...we tell everyone we meet to go to the AMBAR!!!!
