My wife and I stayed here for 7 nights in mid November 2012. We were looking for an adults only in P.C., and after some internet research, we went with the Ambar. We don't have anything bad to say about the place. The food selection was very good, from buffets to their numerous restaurants, the quality was above average, and the reservations were painless (take some nice clothes… dress code). They had top notch alcohol which is a rarity at many all inclusives, and a big plus for me :-). The grounds were beautiful and well kept. The pool was huge, clean, and a great place to spend an afternoon. The beach was great, powdery sand, and we had no problem finding chairs near the water any time of day. The ocean was warm and relatively calm; we bobbed around in there plenty. The room was nice, and well kept. I gave the kid that stocked the fridge a ten spot the first day; we had plenty of bottled water and a few extra “adult beverages” every day.
The only thing that kind of bummed me out was that they didn't have a real hot-tub. They had these 3 circular sitting areas that looked like large hot-tubs, but they were open to, and fed by the pool. It was kind of strange... same temp as the pool. That is really my only quasi knock on the place.
Bottom line: If you're looking for a week away from the kids, on a nice beach, at a nice resort, we would highly recommend the Ambar.
