We just came back from a week's vacation at the Gran Bahia Principe Ambar.
The Ambar is one of the three buildings of the resort which include also Gran bahia principe Bavaro and Gran Bahia Pricipe( Punta Cana). All three buildings are a walking distance to one another.
We had access to all three parts of the resort and the Ambar was by far the best of the three. There are fewer people so the buffet, bars, pool area and lobby are never overcrowded. Seeing as there are less people, service is quicker and more personalized than the other resorts. Also, the Ambar is located very close to the beach.
Our room was very romantic with a wonderful King bed and a nice balcony. The bathroom has a shower and a jacuzzi bath.
The food was good....not as good as in Mexico,Bahia Prinicipe Tulum...but it was all around good. The buffet has great presentations and a lot of variety. The A la Carte restaurants are good too...the best were the Don Pablo( gourmet) and the Japanese restaurant. Being at the Ambar we were allowed to eat every day at any of the A la Carte restaurants and this includes all the other A la Carte restaurants in the three buildings.
The only thing is that some people had their reservations already done for them by their travel agent...our travel agent did not do them for us...so we had only three reservations done for the three restaurants at the Ambar...I have no idea who chose these reservations for us, but it is not our travel agent as she was unaware of this....The reservations were in a white envelope when we checked in....We did not go by these reservations as we preferred making our own choices on the days and times we chose...
So it is really important to go to the Customer Relations desk and make your reservations the day you arrive...if you do not like the reservations that were made for you...ask them to change them or tell them....
Overall, great experience...wonderful weather,,,great beach...good service...good food...variety of good drinks....
Loved it...I wish I could go back tomorrow....
