Having been to Bahia Principe Akumel in Mexico last year and having loved it beyond anyplace we have been to we decided to take our honeymoon at another Bahia Principe hotel and picked the Ambar in Dominican Republic.
We returned yesterday and we had an amazing time, staff, food, hotel everything was amazing (only thing I would say is the A La Carte restaurants (bar the French one) we found very much underpar with the Mexican resort which was outstanding). Other than that the buffet and snack food was amazing and variety of drinks we couldn't fault.
As we wanted to see more of the complex we did go to the Bravo area for entertainment and drinks in the evening. the staff were always helpful and especially Yajaira in the lobby bar in Bravo should get a special recommendation she was always very attentive to me and my husband and always bought us anything we wished for. Also Angel (I think that is right) in the bravo bar was a good friend to my husband.
We did notice that the American clientele were better treated but we summarised this as being that they tip a lot and are very loud so being british maybe we need to be a bit more vocal !
Beaches were glorious, pools were good and clean couldn't actually fault it.
Highly recommended would go to a Bahia Principe anywhere
