We find our stay incredible. The beach, restaurants and the service was impecable. In addition, the pool is very very clean and the incredible Barman, Domingo, Marcos and Dario create a world of fun to around this pool with their smile and drink :)

The rooms are very good. Always clean and the bathroom are awesome.
The fact that this hotel is a 18 year old does really offer an incredible opportunity for you to rest without cries or other worries. The Ambar , allows you to have access to all other resort restaurant at the esmeralda and the bavaro.

I recommend this hotel without any problem and I will go back for sure!!!

We stayed at the Bahia Principe Ambar for our Honeymoon. It definitely was a beautiful resort and was a very relaxing vacation.

Positives:
1. Beautiful resort! Very scenic with beautiful beaches.

2. Fun! The pool area is a great time. The swim up bar was great. There is always stuff going on in the resort. The shows are fun to watch at night and it's nice to relax at the hotel lobby for drinks and music at night.

3. Food is good. The food was pretty good. Not the best I have had but definitely nice. Would recommend Don Pablo for the lobster or the japanese restaurant.

Negatives:
1. Beware of the sellers! There are a lot of sellers on the hotel property. At the pool you will constantly be bothered with tour people trying to sell you excursions. I am used to seeing this on the beach, but wasn't a big fan of being bothered at the pool. Also, beware of the sellers in the hotel lobby. You will be told you are getting a "welcome pack" but it includes a 60 minute upsell on their newest hotel properties. I didn't think it was right to have people all over the hotel including the lobby for this kind of stuff.

2. You have to make a reservation for the restaurants! I have been to all-inclusives in the past where the restaurants are always open and anyone can eat there. Here, you have to make a reservation for everything and they don't always have available times for you to eat. We only got to try a few of the many restaurants because they were either closed or had full reservations.

3. Rooms get a bit musty. Towards the end of our stay our room got a pretty bad moldy/musty smell. It was pretty humid while we were there so that probably contributed.

Room Tip: Request a room close to the pool. If not, you will have to walk pretty far to get to the pool.

This hotel is perfect for an adults get away. The food is good, the service is good and the beaches are amazing. The downside are the rooms that have thin walls and whatever you try the doors close with a slam. So if you want to sleep early or late good luck with that.

We stayed at Ambar Sep 30-Oct 5 and had a wonderful honeymoon. It was so relaxing and beautiful. The service was exceptional and the staff very pleasant in all areas. The beach, grounds, pool, lobby and room were all clean and had great ambiance. The food was delicious and with lots of variety. Emmanuel was our butler and he took care of our every need from the second we stepped into the lobby till checkout. His service was beyond expectation. The bartenders and waitstaff made anything you wanted along with helping with suggestions. We will definitely return someday. Cant' wait!

I went on this trip with my mother. We arrived at the hotel in the afternoon. Our rooms were not ready yet but they were quick to register us and give us our bracelets to enjoy the facilities. I went back to get our room keys and was very pleased. I had booked a room and reservations to restaurants before arriving and was pleased to have seen that everything I asked for had been taken care off. The rooms were clean and nice. The food was very good. I very much enjoyed Don Pablo's . The service at the pool was great. Rafael who is the DJ was a lot of fun and was very helpful with any questions we had. He made being at the pool a lot of fun especially around 4pm. I also want to thank Jose Garcia Lima for helping my mother and I one evening. We ended up mixing up one of our reservations to a restaurant and where unable to get in so he kindly took care of that and escorted us in and made sure that we were seated and tended to. Thank you so much for taking the time. We only stayed a week and it wasn't long enough. I will be sure to return. I have travelled many places but this is one place I will not forget and will for sure return to.:)

Everything about this holiday was excellent.
FOOD - massive choice, high quality, good service, attention to detail.
ROOM - large room with good facilities. Cleaned regularly. Towels changed up to twice a day. Separate beach towels provided and changed at the pool when needed.
STAFF - very hard working and with a smile on their faces all the time. Nothing was too much trouble. They are all amazing. Whoever does the training is doing a first class job.
BEACH - beautifully clean, plenty of places to sit. Bar staff on hand all day to bring you whatever drink you fancy.
POOL - Again excellent. Clean with plenty of places to sit. Music occasionally a little too loud.
We loved this Hotel and would recommend it to anyone for its service, position and quality of staff.
