    Excellent all inclusive resort, close to airport beautiful beach

    Excellent all inclusive resort, close to airport (25 min transfer) absolutely huge with six resorts in one we stayed at the luxury amber but we made use of the facilities in the other resorts from time to time such as restaurants, pools and entertainment Pool Large pool, large pool bar, pool open 8-7pm (bar opens 10am) high season. loud music most of the day and an entertainment team keeping people interested - beer challenge, dancing, pool party, foam party etc - easy to not join in and just watch or join in. foam party excellent. if you sit the furthest end of the pool the entertainment would pretty much go unnoticed so you have choices lovely pool/beach restaurant available right next door Beach Beautiful beach, white sands and blue sea no good for snorkelling as no rocks or anything or interest - also can get a bit wavy which can be fun but no good for bringing your snorkel lots of water activities - banana boat, kayak, parasailing etc - all at additional cost we sat in the quiet bit by the lovely beach bar which is open 10-6pm, really lovely bar with mellow beach music all day and a great vibe. lots of weddings on the beach to watch! beach goes on for miles so lots of opportunity for Long beach walks and nose at the the other resorts Food Food amazing everywhere - MEAT, Limbo and Portafina wonderful but my fav was the Mexican as could sit on the balcony on the beach. Rodizo was pretty rubbish too be fair, lovely setting on beach and staff trying hard but very understaffed and disorganised, food was pretty random and only 3 chaps with meat wandering round...meant you had eaten everything by time ONE slice of beef (all beef based) was put on your plate. they need to rethink this Fish market a bit odd but food lush if you love seafood - if not there is chicken! wasn't keen on El olivo but think the grumpy clientele in there had something to do with that generally in restaurants we observed lots of customers being quite entitled which is a bit annoying for both us and the staff but if you can ignore them and their whining about stuff its a great experience buffet excellent and huge - so much choice! coffee shop is a stroke of genius - very popular - loads of snacks and great QUICK coffee - rarely a Q la brisa on the beach pool side was ACE - less choice than main buffet but who cares when the views of the sea are breathtaking Drinks everything and anything available - take thermo mugs to keep them cold and reduce trips to bar! Weather HOT HOT HOT every day- in 30s and felt like 40s one day of complete rain which was fine as sat by pool and played cards and swam Rooms we had standard 3rd floor balcony room - MASSIVE!!! cant be shy though as shower is rather "open"!!! take own shampoo and conditioner if you have long hair - absolutely dreadful standard and not usable - had to buy stuff in the shop dont get too excited about mini bar as its a bit crap really - ok if you like beer and 3 or 4 nuts but otherwise everything a bit random - sometimes a vodka, sometimes a whiskey, sometimes nothing. no Diet Coke - fat coke now and again and a random orange fizzy drink which was pretty dire. Didnt matter if you tipped - it wasn't really a great mini bar but didnt matter as lobby bar next door so just brought drinks back. staff very helpful - not sure what all the palaver is about tipping, we tipped when we wanted to - not every five seconds and still got great service a few lookey lookey men on beach - but they are no problem and they dont hassle you if you not interested pool cleaners brilliant and do a great job - have to mention Rudy :) lovely chap and hard worker entertainment team work hard but they need to sort out their beach party and play music everyone likes - not just what they like!!! they are very young and love to dance but they do have a certain taste in music which can be a bit crap and no-one else but them them can dance to! the entertainment at the Aquamarine was much better and they got everyone up dancing - well worth a visit - their white party was ace, you have to go to their lobby to see what's on overall - staff were ace overall excellent resort, highly recommend - the only thing I would change would be the sea to have lots of rocks thrown in so it was more interesting for those that love snorkelling but I knew that before I went and didnt matter. other than that - absolutely perfect!!!! wouldn't go back as we dont ever go back to the same place but I could see why people become repeat travellers as its a great all round resort and has everything for everyone tips - bring own shampoo, dont be shy in the shower and dont get hopes up for mini bar!

    Excellent vacation

    I'll just start with we had a bad experience at a different property on the island and left after a day, we arrived at the Amber and were greeted fantastically by all of the front of the house staff, it was very Hands-On and informative. The best part of the front of the house was the manager Carlos Ramirez! Carlos was excellent! He looked out for us and took care of us throughout our stay, all of the staff here is of great quality from a line cook, to a housekeeper, entertainment, bartender you name it everybody's very friendly and very professional. We definitely will be back! we very much enjoyed the property, and the variety of food available 24/7 thanks again to Carlos and his staff!

    wonderful holiday

    Our vacation at Ambar was an extremely pleasant experience, we stayed here for ten nights during which we thoroughly enjoyed the excellent services and facilities of the Bahia Principe complex. I can appreciate that everything was superlative, the reception, the large and very well-kept rooms, the restaurants with very diverse and tasty menus, the very neat and well-kept beach, the complex's garden very beautiful and well-kept, very good transport facilities within the complex and last but not least the warmth, kindness and promptness of the staff. Everything was perfect and I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel. thank you BPL Ambar for this unforgettable stay!
