I just wanted to add this review as I think currently this entry on Tripadvisor implies that swimming from Ambo is a good idea. Generally speaking the level of pollution in the lagoon is such that i-matang (foreigners) should avoid swimming in it except further away from populated areas e.g. North Tarawa, or else where there is good flow through from the ocean e.g. Buota, Betio causeway. Swimming from Ambo carries a risk of getting pretty sick.
Ambo Lagoon Club is still a lovely spot but not much happens there these days.
