Just spent seven days at Club Ambiance, Best trip to Jamaica we have ever had so far!
We had such a good time it is hard for me to know where to start my review.
Who should go and who should not go to Club Ambiance.
If you want a relaxing stay by the Caribbean Sea and a chance to party with friends you have not met yet, want real Jamaican food, and just generally to have a good time. Then this is the place for you to go.
If you want a Mega-Resort with hundreds or even thousands of other people, the same food and drinks you get at home, and want to make reservations and dress for dinner then this is not the place for you to go.
1. First and foremost the staff and crew make this place great. They are all friendly and,courteous.
2. The resort is small enough so you can get to know the other guests.
3. The food really is great. Hot,fresh,and plenty of it.
1. The resort is old and dated.
2. The beaches are very small and the distance between the clothed(prude) beach and nude
beach is only 100m with no screen. the sand is some what course on the clothing optional beach where we spent most of our time.
3. Dining choices were usually limited to one on this last visit.
1.Some of the "artwork" is truly revolting. (Hey I had to come up with something ugly to continue the theme.)
Everything that I have mentioned in the bad and ugly sections are being addressed right now.
As we were checking out I was give a review form to fill out. One of the thing that I mentioned was paint. When I walked outside there was a man on a ladder painting. So things are improving everyday.
Bottom line is" Would you recommend this resort to your best friend?" YES! I already have. This was my husband's review. I will continue to the females point of view.
When we checked in we were given a complimentary upgrade to the honeymoon suites. The other couple that went with us also were given an upgrade. First these two honeymoon suites were next door to each other. Our suite had a king size bed, a separate sitting area, a flat screen t.v. (we also had on over our king size bed so we could watch either in bed or in the living area. The bathroom had been done in a beautiful shade of blue with a separate shower. There was also a shower in the tub as well. When you are standing in the shower, you look out and the Caribbean sea were just 50 yards from us. We also had chairs and table on the veranda where the four of us could talk. The only bad part of the bathroom was that there were no outlets for hair dryers or curling/flat irons. But hey-you are on vacation.
The ride from the airport was most comfortable. We ended up being the only one on the bus and the driver was very interesting
All meals are served buffet style and there was always an assortment of food to partake. Lunch and dinner had different choices and if you were at an in between meal, the grill had great tuna fish sandwiches along with hot dogs, hamburgers, BLT, grilled cheese.
Our second night there was the Jamaican special. Everything was seasoned with jerk-jerk chicken, jerk goat, ad authentic Jamaican food.
But I personally think the best part of the whole trip was that the staff went out of their way to make sure you were happy. Plus, there were only about 40 people there so it felt like you had your own beach, your own bartender, your own wait staff. We also did a couples massage that was very good. They were running a special and we took it.
Like my husband said earlier in his part of the review, this is a most comfortable and easy vacation we have had in years. No lines for shows, no reservations for dinner and any beach we decided to visit. We will be back!!!!!
Also need to give some shout outs to Melanie, Phillip, Richard,Storm, Omar, "Momma"-she did a pumpkin soup that I have never tasted. Mrs. Bugsy -she was a private car that took us to out of the way places to see the view. I know I am forgetting a lot of people and do apologize. I will keep a little pad to write down the names.
Try to book Honeymoon 15-it costs a little more but the view and location are top notch!
