worried about recent ambar reviews

Not that we are worried about the ambar itself..we LOVE the resort. I am very upset because it seems like our LEAST favourite barman in Punta Cana is now at the ambar pool bar. We did not return to a prior resort because of him. He annoyed the he!! out of us. He balanced drinks on his head and made constant sexual jokes, and brayed like a donkey LOUDLY... CONSTANTLY

The ambar is an upscale adult only resort and we love it for the quiet and relaxing atmosphere. I can honestly say that if he is there in October,, MAKING THOSE NOISES.. It will be the first time ever I spend my time hunting down the manager and complaining. Greg has also said if he acts like this for our whole two week vacation, It will be our last trip to ambar (that makes me very sad)

Don't get me wrong, I am up for fun,, and a little noise, and it was funny the first time or two he did it, but when he does it all day everyday it gets to grinding on the nerves. As I am not a swimmer, I don't venture into the ocean, so we spend a lot of time at the pool area.

arrrrrrrrh. Just a vent I guess. I am hoping some recent visitors to the ambar who complained about him in their reviews, are paid attention to by management.

If anyone has Marco Pena's email address I would appreciate it.

greglynn,

There is a new General Manager at the Ambar as Pere Villa is no longer there.

The new General Manager is Jose Lima and his second in command is Marco Penna,

I'm quite worried by these recent reviews as well, hoping to see a management response soon to the reviews mentioned or we will be changing our holiday and going back to the cat royal which we enjoyed last time.

Change of management can make a huge difference. Sometimes it's okay but many times not. I hope things don't change for the worse for Ambar fans. I dread the idea of a manager change at my fave resort.

We also ran into him. He walked my wifes drink to her on his head. After he left all my wife could say was he seemed creepy. Never saw him up at the top part of the bar where we got 99% of our drinks. Every other bartender was fantastic.

well CRAP. It IS him. If I want antics like that I will go to a resort geared to party animals who are drinking constantly and would find that amusing while drunk..
