Stayed at Ambar 5th-19th Feb and had a very enjoyable 2 week holiday.
Room- Although a little dark, which is a theme in the Dom Rep I think, the room was very comfortable and clean with great showering and toilet facilities. TV if you want to watch it does have English speaking channels, about 6-8, if you need to watch them.. Be aware though that there are rooms which have 2 small double beds in, which we were not expecting. If you want a king ask for one before you go.. Mini bar was hit and miss if it was restocked each day. Our maid Marie was spot on and always willing to assist.
Food- Have no major complaints about the food in any of the areas where we ate, the soup was never hot is about the only negative.
Staff- Always smiling and want to help you. On their toes all the time as the management constantly walked around popping in unannounced!
Pool- Yes the towel game is played here and there are those who reserve beds early hours then don't appear until lunch time, it would be nice if these selfish people could be sorted, but I don't know what the answer is! There are however some beds available until about 0800, after that you will struggle to get a decent shaded area..certainly around the pool.
The Ambar although separate from the other part of the Bahia resort is in it's own right busy. We had a mixture of quiet days and noisy days, it will depend on flight times in and out and if there are any large wedding parties there as these seam to be the noisy parties.
The pool bar is in the centre of the large pool so if it's noisy around the bar it will be noisy around the pool.
Overall we had a very good 2 weeks and would definitely return if the price is right next year.
A special thanks to our butler Eaudi, our pool waitresses Marlene and Bianca and not forgetting Juckson, Kelly and Junior who entertained us for our two weeks.
