I stayed at the Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar from August 5th until the 12 and it was amazing!! First of all, the temperature was to die for, sunny everyday and sizzling hot but that's everywhere in Punta Cana. I travelled with my mother, it's a great place for couples but we still felt included in the resort. Since it's 18+ the crowd is older, but the entertainment is there. Bingo, zumba, aquagym every day by the pool which is always fun to participate in. This isn't my first time in Punta Cana, I've stayed at the Majestic Elegance, Royal Suites Turquesa, Riu Palace several times and this resort is one of the best so far! According to my mother, everything is perfect except the size of this resort. It's a series of 4 complex (Ambar, Bavaro, Esmeralda and Punta Cana), so if you want to catch the shows at night you need to take a little shuttle bus. For me, it wasn't a problem but it depends on what you like. If you stay at the Ambar, everything is pretty close, but once you get out of your complex, you have a lot to see! Foodwise, WOW!! One of the greatest resort for the food, from the buffet to the a la carte restaurants, everything was succulent! We've read before on trip advisor that the Don Pablo was to die for so we booked it 2 nights and the reviewers were right! I had the chateaubriand and it was cooked to perfection. Also, the service is worth the rating of a 5 star hotel, no complaints on that. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a little break from home and needs luxury, this is for you!!! The lobby is very nice and always clean. The only thing, it isn't air-conditionned so it gets very hot, especially when you are travelling in summer time. The price is very affordable compared to other 5 star hotels in Punta Cana and it's the same quality. I would definitely go back!
