Spent 1 week at Ambar from April 19-April 26 with my spouse. This was our first trip to Punta Cana so we did extensive research on where to stay. We picked the Ambar for a few reasons, adults only, five star and the nice beach. We were absulutly happy with our choice once we got there. The Ambar did not dissapoint in any area, truly a five star. Check in was a breeze as we were met at front of lobby by Christian and checked in having a drink on the patio. We were there at 12 noon so our room wasn't ready, that was ok as we packed our suits and were in the ocean by 1pm. Once in the room we were very impressed with the large room, clean and large bathroom. Try to book an end room as they are larger than the rest of the rooms. Food was good with lots of variety, we ate at the snack buffet, regular buffet and had 4 a la carte meals. All were good with service being excellent. We were very impressed with the snack buffet at the end of the pool where you could get a wide variey of food in a relaxed atmosphere. We recommend the Don Pauplo restauant as a a la carte and a must is to order the banana flambe as dessert-it is quite a show, however you must ask for this as its not on the menu. The beach was all i had hoped for, very quiet and relaxing however i did have to wake by 5am to reserve my favorite front row beach location. It wasn't too bad as it was an amazing sun rise. The looby and outdoor patio were truly amazing, it was a great meeting spot before and after dinner. We didn't do any excursions as lying on the beach reading and relaxing were what we were there for. I would absulatly reccomend this resort to any. I have read reviews of people having items taken from there room and safe, all i can say is we had jewelry out in our room and nothing was touched as well nothing went out from the safe. Overall a great spot .
