I went to Punta Cana for the 3rd time with my wife from Sept 16th to Sept 23rd. We will definitely be back next year. This time we stayed at the amazing Gran Bahia Principe Ambar. Everyone needs to experience a resort amazing like the Ambar.
A special thank you to Marco Pena the Resident Manager for taking care of all of our needs prior to arrival.
Ambar is a smaller section of the Gran Bahia Principe (over 18 only) which was the BEST ever.
Upon arrival, bell hop transported us to are villa which was very quick ride from the lobby where we were dropped off. We stayed at the Villa 60 which was between the lobby and beach and on the 3rd floor about 3 minute walk each way.
The room was very large and spacious it had a large bathroom-separate shower and Jacuzzi tub; stocked with toiletries; vanity mirror and robes with slippers and closet-safe, shelves, hangers, umbrella
,drawers-lined with Gran Bahia Principe logo
The refrigerator was stocked daily with water, pop, beer, and mini bottles of vodka, rum, and whiskey
The food in the main restaurant was great, A la carte restaurants-book them ASAP as they fill up fast, Breakfast/lunch/dinner is located next to the lobby and the members of staff working there were always very nice and friendly especially Gladys at the buffet restaurant that lady is a star. And 24hr room service that was excellent.
Entertainment at the Tropicana Theatre was great. Michael Jackson night was the best show well done to the crew for pulling that of. Also it was nice to have a walk around the resort at night you had a choice of walking or taking the trams up towards the other hotels at night for entertainment.
The beach was great the workers were excellent at keeping it tidy. If you can try and walk down towards the bottom of the beach there you will find a lovely beach market were you can bargain.
Tipping is at your own discretion but always appreciated. We did a lot of this because a lot of the staff work very hard just so that we can have a perfect stay. It’s nice to show them that your grateful.
We was as the night club every night after the show the DJ was very good. We did notice guests from the other areas of the resort trying to swim in the pool and were told to leave. That made us feel special that it's inclusive to Ambar guests only. And there is security that patrols the area at all-time as well.
A massive thank you to all the Ambar staff and Gladys at the buffet and Marco Pena the hotel Manager.
