“Bring Your Own Toiletries!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

The only thing that is going for the Ambassador is its located directly on the beach. The Ambassador is a combination of condos and hotel. Our room actually must be part of an apartment because there is a door btw the two rooms and this am we awoke to someone's alarm. The bathroom is completely dated and it reminds me of my grandmothers apartment bathroom in Brooklyn from the 70s.
They do not supply you with Any toiletries at all other than soap. We had to run to a local convenient store in Lake Worth to purchase shampoo conditioner and some body lotion.
This is our second day here and I don't see any activity in the "spa". so don't bank on any massages or mani/pedi.
Needless to say, I would not stay here again. It was a last minute reservation made for business and most hotels were booked solid due to the holiday weekend.

The valet that parked our car and grabbed our bags was very polite and the receptionist was even better, offering all sorts of useful information on the area and the hotels facilities. The public areas varied in standard, though some had been recently been redone, however the real pleasure was the apartment we were in, No. 104/111.

What we later found was that the apartments are all privately owned and it was clear that owners of this apartment had good taste. The decor was refined and the furniture beautiful, we particularly enjoyed the art deco bathrooms that had been immaculately restored, it was worth a stay just to see them! As these are self catering facilities they have a kitchen which was wonderful with an island and even a Viking oven of all things. I have to say we rarely used it. The hotel restaurant is diabolical but we eventually found so many great places to eat, both on the beach and nearby it wasn't a problem.

This apartment has direct beach access and was on the same level as the swimming pool so great for enjoying a swim or sunbathe on the beach, which we did often. What was particularly nice was that the hotel has private cabanas on the beach which they look after for residents, though the beach was always pleasantly never overcrowded.

We lucked when booking this apartment as we didn't realise that not all had balconies and for this reason coupled with the luxurious standard of the apartment, and dare I forget to say the daily maid service (which I have never come across in a self catering apartment before) we will be sure to stay in this suite again.

Room Tip: I can't say it enough. Ground floor, but certainly on the beach side as they have the balconies...

First off a few facts. This place is a weird hybrid of condo and hotel. The two types are mixed together and the staff ,who were fantastic, tries to deal with the very different issues of both. Not easy. Secondly it is an OLD place but pretty well maintained.

If I haven't scared you off, it is well located right on the beach 3 properties from the Four Seasons . It has a nice pool with a deli type restaurant that was almost always empty. We had a good meal right by this pool. The room selection is a mix from studios to 3 bedroom units. Frankly not worth staying in the smaller units.
If however you are a family or group the multi room units can be great value and certainly much better deal then anything else you will find in Palm Beach.

The beach is wonderful and you can rent a cabana for $15 a day or just use the hotel towels.
If this is too "different " and you don't want to pay 300+ a night ,there is Fairfield Inn nearby. Even this is closing in on 200 in season. Again for the money, the Ambassador was nice. Believe there is a 3 day minimum.

Very different sort of place.

Room Tip: Look for Ocean view.

We stayed here because The Breakers had no available rooms. We were pleasantly surprised at the beach cabanas set on the grassy area just before the sand. The owners were friendly to us and even invited us for wine.

Newly renovated and great views from any room. New eatery on premises being remodeled. Friendly staff and walking distance to shop and eat! Beautiful landscaping! We loved it, may buy a unit!

Not exactly what we expected, but the service and friendly faces were a plus. The rooms and the condition of the building itself were not in tip top shape. If I had known I wouldn't have booked it for so much. I think it's a great place to stay, but for the moeny, I would rather stay elsewhere.

First things first, they need a facelift. This building looks like it haden't been touched in 30 years. For the location, you would think that they'd be more presentable. Not at all what they described when I went to book. This hotel is tired and needs to close. I am shocked at what Palm Beaches standards have dropped to. View the property BEFORE you plan your trip there. Thank god the Four Seasons was near by.
