We spent the a very relaxing week here and overall we were quite pleased with the resort. The adults only AMBAR was next to the beach which it shared with 2 other Bahia Principe resorts. The beach was great and the amount of care that they take on keeping it clean and going the extra distance to have someone actual cleaning the sand off the beach chairs was a pleasant surprise. The adults only pool was very relaxing and like the beach, very well kept.
The restaurants here are like the rest of the resort, clean, friendly staff and a wide array of food choices for everyone to pick and choose. The buffet restaurant was our favorite for any meal. Don Pablo restaurant was not as many people said the best of the bunch. When we arrive we were greeted with a grumpy host who seemed to have lost his smile that everyone else had that evening. The food was not impressive and over cooked like our previous evening at the Portofino restaurant. The mean at Portofino was the worst of the week and maybe it was just our luck that they were having a bad night in the kitchen. The rest of the week we had enjoyable meals at the buffet, the Japanese restaurant Maiko and El Olivo. The buffet food was always visually appealing and well seasoned but most of the choices were over cooked and lukewarm to be kind. However, we managed to stay well fed and enjoyed the resort a lot.
We had such a good time and can't say enough about all the employees at the resort who were always smiling and willing to help you with everything and anything you needed them to do. Even though we are not normally All-Inclusive vacationers but we may just return sometime soon to the Ambar for another relaxing week in Punta Cana.
