This will be a short but sweet review. First time visitor, totally impressed by resort. The beach is beautiful, staff were courteous, helpful and extremely friendly. The food in the buffets was excellent with a different theme each night. The al a cart restaurants were slow and the buffet food was actually better. (2 hour dinners in al a cart). The total Gran Bahia resort is very large but transportation is good and fun. The Punta Cana section has the best night life, stay away from casino, they actually charge for drinks, even with wrist band. Would recommend the Ambar for non children couples, wide range of ages. The only downer was the getting catamarans and snorkel equipment at the beach. It is contracted out and it was hard to get a boat or snorkel equipment because they didn't have enough. Plus the people were not friendly and quite rude. The hotel should take it over or find another group to run it. That's it, only complaint, vacation was terrific and will be back in December.
