Reviews Summary

Powered by AI
The Bahia Principe Luxury Ambar, an adults-only all-inclusive retreat, garners praise for its spacious rooms and professional staff, though guests have noted occasional maintenance and service lapses. Its cleanliness and vibrant atmosphere, complete with music and entertainment, are well-regarded, as are the extensive amenities, despite reports of crowding. While the picturesque beachside location is a highlight, some guests feel the experience doesn't justify the cost, mentioning upcharges and underwhelming value.

Hotel's Favorite
We recently stayed at the Luxury Ambar, Bahia Principe, Punta Cana in mid-July 2022. This was our second stay in the Dominican Republic and fifth time at a Bahia Principe resort. We usually vacation for a week, but due to COVID impeding our travel over the past two years, we stretched it to nine days this time around. We travelled with a couple of good friends, and it was their first all-inclusive vacation. They had an absolutely wonderful time, but here are my impressions. The Resort and Rooms: Luxury Ambar is the premier resort @ Bahia Principe, Punta Cana. All of the other Grand and Luxury resorts at the complex pale in comparison. For comparison sake, Luxury Akumal and Sian Ka’an at BP Mayan Riviera do have a more modern and upscale feel. However, Ambar in Punta Cana is more compact and less sprawling than its Mexican counterparts. In fact, you can walk from the main pool to the lobby and main building in three minutes. Essentially, any Villa block at Ambar is well situated for quick and easy access to the lobby and/or pool and beach areas. Ambar is the only resort in the complex that offers swim up pool rooms, which give the Ambar’s villas a more upscale and luxurious feel. We didn’t opt for a swim up room, because we were literally a minute walk to the main pool. Our suite was modern, well appointed, and thoughtfully designed. The king-sized bed was massive and provided ample room to stretch out. We had absolutely no issues with the air conditioning. It blew strong and cold. The ceiling fan also helped to cool down the room as well. Food and Restaurants: As most all-inclusive veterans know, the caliber and quality of the food are not on par with US and Canada standards. That said, the food was good overall. Yes, there are some hits and misses, but everyone should be going home a few pounds heavier. The Palmyra is the main buffet where we had breakfast and lunch everyday. It’s got a broad and diverse array of offerings. While not everything wows, there definitely is something for everyone. I personally don’t like food that’s been sitting around too long, so fortunately it has three live cooking stations at lunch where I could always get something freshly made, hot, and tasty. There’s a pasta station where you can choose your own pasta, sauce and ingredients. There’s a grill where they can prepare your choice of steak, chicken, pork, fish, and hamburgers. And there’s a fry station, where they can fry you up beef, chicken, fish, plantain, and calamari either naked or dredged in flour. There were a couple of lunches where I ate primarily hot and fresh chicken wings with a couple of cold beers. Nothing wrong with that! By mixing and matching and alternating the live cooking stations, I had something new and different every day and it never really felt like I was settling for average buffet fare. Here are the a la carte restaurants that we tried during our stay: MEAT, El Olivo, Portofino, Limbo, Garden Grill Cafe, Mashua Nikkei, and both Rodizio style restaurants at Ambar and Esmeralda. Most a la cartes offer three courses: appetizers, mains, and desserts. While good overall, there was not one restaurant where all three courses amazed us. I’m not going to write a review on every restaurant, but will just share a couple of thoughts: - most of the main courses were good to very good - the Ribeye steak at MEAT is tasty, but they don’t trim the fat which some people might not like. Also, it’s Grade A to AA - the chateaubriand at El Olivo is tasty but often overcooked. Also the portion size is small - the filet mignon at Garden Grill Cafe is so tender and delicious - while the dishes are creative, the portion sizes at Limbo are small - Portofino was the most consistently good meal for all four of us diners - Mashua Nikkei is Peruvian-Asian. While not wholly authentic, it was a nice break to enjoy some Asian flavours and cuisine - We were very frustrated with both Rodizio restaurants. The chicken and pork were tasty, but most of the beef offerings were well done, which made them tough and dry. They do offer some skewers where the beef is cooked to medium, but honestly, it seemed like they were intentionally avoiding us. At our last dinner, I had to wait over half an hour for a server to offer me beef cooked to medium. It was slow, frustrating, and disappointing. I should note that there is a sports bar that is exclusive to Ambar and Aquamarine guests. It’s open from 6:00 pm to 2:00 am with the kitchen closing at 11:00 pm. There you can get chicken wings, mozzarella sticks, fries, chips, etc. We stopped by one night and listened to some live music. It was a lot of fun! Alcohol and Beverages: One of the amenities that I really loved was the coffee shop. There you can get expresso type beverages We travelled with a couple of good friends, and it was their first all-inclusive vacation.

There you can get chicken wings, mozzarella sticks, fries, chips, etc. We stopped by one night and listened to some live music. It was a lot of fun! Alcohol and Beverages: One of the amenities that I really loved was the coffee shop. There you can get expresso type beverages such as lattes, cappuccinos, americanos, frappes, and of course expressos. While the brewed coffee at the buffet and restaurants are pretty decent, I would make it a point to grab a cappuccino before I headed into the Palmyra buffet. I think the coffee shop was the only one of its kind at the complex, which just elevates the Ambar experience even more. The main lobby bar is stocked with pretty decent brands of alcohol. However, they will use the cheaper brands of alcohol for most drinks unless otherwise specified. I liked to grab my drink at the coffee shop and add a shot of Baileys or Kahlua from the main lobby bar to give it an extra nice kick. The bars at the beach and pool have a more limited selection. In terms of the frozen drinks they have the slushie machines going with Pina Coladas and red, fruity slush for margaritas. It’s pretty standard stuff. They use small plastic glasses at the pool and beach. I don’t personally like them that much, because they don’t hold a lot of drink, plus they get warm fast. As such, we brought Bubba Mugs to hold more drinks and keep them colder longer. The national beer of DR is Presidente, which is what they stock at the resort. Yes, you can get some international beers at the main lobby bar, but there’s a surcharge of $5 USD for a Bud, Corona, or Heineken. Why bother, when Presidente is cold, it is perfectly fine. Now, while most of the drinks are pretty standard, the exception is the bar at Limbo restaurant. In fact, the bar is the centrepiece of the restaurant. That’s where they craft fun, innovative, and modern style cocktails. We ended many an evening at the Limbo bar. Even though we dined at a different restaurant, the Limbo bar was our go to for our night cap. Many other guests did the same. Many people drop in at around 9:30 pm or 10:00 pm to have one of their wonderful cocktails or just have fun with their awesome bartenders (more on them later). Beach and Pool: The main pool is kind of loud and for many guests, the place to have fun. I went there occasionally, but only after 5:30 pm when it was less crowded and less hot. Even at 5:30 pm, when you first take a dip in the pool, the shallow water feels hot. The deeper you go, it’s still bath water warm. After a while, your body acclimates to the temperature, but it never really feels refreshing. I don’t blame the pool for this, but it’s the mid-July heat and humidity of the Dominican Republic. As such, we made it a point to spend most of our time at the Beach. No matter how hot it was, the ocean breeze was always soothing and inviting. It provided a much needed respite from the heat and humidity. With respect to the beach, the sand is soft and powdery. There is little to no rocks or shells at the shore which negates the need for water shoes. However, seaweed seems to be a big problem all over the Caribbean and Punta Cana is no exception. The resort had a tractor constantly removing the sea weed. I appreciated the effort, but you have to put up with the noise of the tractor going back and forth. Fortunately, the sounds of the wind and water mute out the noise. My only other issue at the beach are the licensed vendors who are walking around hawking their merchandise or services. I don’t have an issue with them per se, but there are some who call out to you even when you’re taking a nap. Management licences them, so they should advise them not to disturb the guests who are sleeping. Service: While I liked the food better in BP Mayan Riviera, and I felt that Luxury Akumal had more of the ‘wow factor’, I still give Ambar a 5-star review, because of the staff. The majority of them are so genuinely warm and friendly. Even though it’s such a huge resort with hundreds of staff, there are a few who really made a strong connection with us. I feel compelled to mention them by name, because they really made us feel at home and our stay exceptional. They always went above and beyond what was expected and are truly great ambassadors for both Bahia Principe and the Dominican Republic. SuperStars: Wandy - Palmyra and MEAT Enny - Main Lobby Bar Kedwin - Limbo Emmanuel - Limbo Ignacia - Housekeeping AllStars: Jose - Palmyra Emelin - Palmyra Keppler Philippe - Club Privilege Ambar Beach James - Club Privilege Ambar Aquilino - Limbo Jesus - Club Privilege Las Olas - 2nd floor Closing Comments: Luxury Ambar is a beautiful resort defined by its lush surroundings and natural landscapes. The grounds are meticulously kept and you feel that you are truly in paradise. However, what truly sets it apart from other resorts and destinations is its exceptional staff. They make you feel at home in their beautiful country.

TL/DR: Very good. Great staff. Food good. Rooms clean and spacious. Would we go back, yes. Resort: Ambar is part of a larger complex but you do not need to go to the other parts unless you have an interest in one of the restaurants. The grounds are well-kept and maintained. Rooms: We had a swim-up in building 68. It's the second building in from the pool on the west side and it felt like it was the perfect distance from both the pool and the main lobby buildings. The concierge was excellent. The fridge was well stocked with beverage preferences. I spent a bit of time looking for an ice machine only to figure out they did not exist and needed to call room service to have it sent. Usually delivered very quickly with a bag so not an issue. Restaurants: We ate at Limbo, Portofino, Meat, and Takara and this is the ranking in preference. Also the Sports Bar for snacks. The wings are pretty good there. We had room service as well and it was quick to arrive. Beach: Get there early if you want some shade. It is a large beach depth-wise. Service was good, and a couple of beachside bars close by. Care is taken to ensure seaweed is cleaned up daily. Pool: Good size, and same comment about the chairs. You need to get them early. Pretty active. If you want a quiet pool to relax by this is not it. It's not that it's overcrowded, rather there are plenty of poolside events. Buffet: We frequented the buffet beside the pool for breakfast and lunch on most days. You'll find something for everyone. Many thanks to the two Miguels (pictured) who provided excellent service every time we were there. These two guys were outstanding. Also a shout-out to the main omelette chef whose name escapes me. He graciously helped us out with our Spanish to the point where we were able to order (mostly) in Spanish by the end of the week. Drinks: The bar at Limbo is great. We had a cocktail or two before dinner every night. Aquilino and fellow tenders were excellent. Watersports: I like to sail and came away without getting out there once. A couple of red flag sail days, but I was unable to book any times when I did try as they were all spoken for. That was a disappointment. Overall, very much enjoyed our trip to Ambar and would certainly return.

find another resort.. this is the only "all inclusive" ,supposedly a 5star resort that charged for bottled beer and if you wanted "top shelf" liquor they wanted to sell you the whole bottle.. no beach activities such as paddle boards or kayaks.. not worth what they are charging.. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE..

This was absolutely top notch and luxury all the way. A la carte Food was outstanding! Buffet was mediocre - but food at the beach buffet was outstanding. We had to get up very early if we wanted a spot on the beach. Besides that outstanding !! We cannot wait to return.

The beds are hard but the room comes with ample pillows, always clean. The resort is beautiful and well maintained. The service at all the bars is exceptional. We really enjoyed spending our time with Kelvin, Moises, and Yordy. The entertainment crew is tons of fun and very enthusiastic. The spa was AMAZING!! Our group had massages with Rosa and Delisa who were hands down the best masseuse’s out there!! The food was great, we loved Meat, Portofino and the lobby buffet for lunches. The silent disco was a blast and we loved to spend time at the sports bar playing pool and eating some excellent wings! Get to the pool or beaches early to grab chairs as they are taken quickly.

Overall this place is EXCELLENTE!! The entertainment crew around the pool went above and beyond with keeping us busy. Shout out to Madeline, King Kong (Edwyn) and Julio thank you for all the fun. The evening shows pool side were great. The silent disco was cool. The saxophone guy in the lobby was great. All the a la cartes that we went to were amazing. The Mongolian is a new addition and it is superb. Thanks to the buffet service from NONO and all the other staff members whose names I didn't get. Thank you to Jenny our room service lady who kept our room super clean. Dominique at the Privilege Club was superb in getting all 5 of us settled in and for getting us on our way. Fantastic service! The grounds are gorgeous and well maintained. We had a leak in our room that was fixed immediately. We were locked out of our safe 2x and that was addressed immediately. Our son orderd room service and it was amazing. Room for improvement on the mattress quality as it was very springy. The pillows are terrible! I think its time for new ones as there seems to be no fluff left to them. We had a few minor power outages in the evenings but was back on within minutes. Also the sand flies at the beach are terrible. We got savaged by them. The mosquitos are also out in full force. Bring bug spray, calamine lotion and hydrocortisone cream. We came home with many many red welts.

Overall, this is a good resort to visit. Very large rooms and that are cleaned to high standards twice a day! Most of the restaurants at this property have a good standard of food for an all inclusive. The alcohol / drinks quality is mixed so we stuck to international spirits and mixers, which were included. Minibar and 24 hour room service included is very good. Breakfast and lunch buffet was excellent! Some of the service was mixed but the high majority was positive, they do well to manage so many guests. We walked into the other Bahia Principe hotels on the resort and Ambar definitely looks the best with higher quality facilities. The Indian restaurant in the Esmerelda (Naan) is fantastic - highly recommend it. The chef personally made the dishes to our taste. The only negatives - the loud music at the main pool does change the atmosphere from a luxury hotel to other typical large all inclusive resorts. That’s my view I know others might enjoy this. Also the pool and beach is packed with loungers which does take away any privacy.

We just spent a week at Ambar with 21 people total! It was the best week ever! The staff was so wonderful! Moises, Kelvin, and Yordy at the pool made sure we were always taken care of! Madelin and Edwin with the entertainment team were great at getting people engaged and made sure everyone had a great time. Delisa at the spa was one of the best masseuse I have ever had. Multiple people in our group had her and we all agreed she was amazing. The food at times was just OK but for the majority of our stay we enjoyed all of the food. Some inconsistencies with items but I’m sure that is because there are multiple chefs. Our biggest complaint was the quality of our bed, we had a king bed and it was hard as a rock, but our group didn’t seem to have beds as hard as ours. We are already planning our next trip!
