“The best place for couple to swin something special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2009

This year I and my wife decided to swin my birthday somehow unique for us. Usually I celebrate my birthday in wide circle of friends and relatives. After such celebration I need a week or two for a rest. That's why I do not like my birthday. This time we decided to run away from all that staff and to spent a romantic weekend in a quite place. We have been looking for a small hotel with spa somewhere on a Baltic sea beach. Some friend adviced us to visit Amber Sea Hotel in Jurmala. Afters some searching in web we decided to go to this hotel, especially we liked special offer with spa procedures. We have visit this hotel in the middle of January. At that weekend there were only 2-3 couples in the hotel. That is why we have such feeling that we were the only guests. The serviss was very good, especially we enjoyed spa procedures. It was quite cold at that time in Latvia, so we have spent a lot of time in restraunt. The cuisine was great and relatively not expensive. The atmosfere of the restraunt at evening time was just gorgeus. Very stylish place actually. When the staff have known that we have been celebrating my birthday party, the chef made me a present - birthday pie. May be it is not very unusual for hotels, but we have been travelling with my wife for the last five year twice per year and this was the first time when we really got special service from hotel staff. So I if you decided not to spend a lot of money and to have a good romantic weekend only for both of you Amber Sea Hotel is quite nice place for that.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2008

The location is just gorgeous, the pine forest starts right at the rear and it's only a 100 metres' walk to the beach. Excellent if you are looking for a quiet spot to relax. If you prefer a lively street life and bars and cafés within walking distance, you might better choose one of the hotels in Maiori district.
The room was well- furnished and spotlessly clean, good breakfast and Sauna/Steam bath/small pool is free once a day from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Customer service could be improved, but this seems to me a general problem of Latvia with its rather introvert people and the relics of Soviet laziness and sulkiness.
I highly recommend this hotel as a home base for a long weekend in Riga.

  • Liked — its location between a shady pine forest and a magnificent beach
  • Disliked — the fact that they told us the wrong place to wait for the shuttle bus to the airport

Amazing place, very nice location. We stayed in amber suite, large room with very big terrace.
The only negative thing we could say about this hotel is costumer service could be little better.

We spent 3 beautiful days there . it's a very romantic and quiet
place, surrouned by pine trees - pleasure to walk around.
The staff is very nice and friendly, and the food is excellent.

Nice hotel, super location. just 3 min walk to the beach.Very friendly staff. This is a small hotel, privately owned, so we did not expect that staff is well trained in providing guest with 100%perfect service. Service was not as in over sweetened chain hotels but respectful and friendly. I actually prefer natural good manors of hotel staff than trained skills. We will come again. As long as it is a tiny hotel they are not as flexible as Hilton would be in solving problems, so just be wise and check rate before you get into your room and leave plenty of time for check out. We had minor error in our bill but it was sold at our request when we showed our booking confirmation slip.

  • Liked — Location near beach and great restaraunts in walking distance
  • Disliked — poor coffee for breakfast and towels change not every day

We stayed for two nights at the Amber Sea Hotel. It had just opened and our initial experience was very positive. The staff were attentive - when we checked in at midnight the receptionist took us straight to our room and it was large and comfortable. However, despite having booked the hotel online and confirmed the rate, we were overcharged 50% because they had allocated us on arrival a more expensive room without telling us. When I queried this after returning to the UK, I was told that they would try to resolve the overcharge with their bank. However, they did not come back to me and after two weeks I contacted them again. They said that they were having difficulty with arranging the refund. I called again a week later and I was told that they had checked with the receptionist and he had told them that we had requested a different room - so they believed that we were charged the correct amount and "the matter was closed". We were the only guests in the hotel and the receptionist (who was a woman not a man) had simply shown us to our room. It is unfortunate that this has been handled so badly because aside from this, I have no complaints about the hotel. In fact, before this, I was planning to submit a review to Tripadvisor praising the hotel.
