The atmosphere was great, the best out of all the resorts we browsed through. The food was really good and service was good. The drinks were good around the resort. We liked the Ambar the best out of the sister hotels on the same property. If you have kids, the Fantasia hotel on the property would be perfect. But in our opinion, the Ambar was the nicest. The layout was the best, it was right next to the ocean and it was just really chill. Bring lots of sunblock though. Try not to buy that stuff there because it’s really expensive. I would totally go back to that resort. I wouldn’t even try another one in the same area.

The food is excellent. Great spot on the beach and the pool is very nice. Drinks are very good. Beds are a little firm, and the pool closes at 6 which is a little odd. Overall a wonderful experience.

This was our 1st trip to Punta Cana, and also 1st time staying at a Bahia Principe Resort and it was phenomenal. Myself and my wife have been all through the Caribbean and have stayed at many all-inclusive resorts, and I'd put this up there with one of the top 3. We stayed at the "Ambar" adults only section of the resort, and it was great. There were a few minor bumps along the way, however the good absolutely outweighed the bad. Also, we were there with 10 of our friends, and I also have Stage 4 Cancer, so I can be somewhat needy-demanding (mostly due to my illness). Here are the details... The Good: - The service and staff was great. We spent most days at the beach with our friends, and the service was great. We never had to wait long for a drink, and there were 2 twin brothers (Jensy and Jefry) that took care of us like we were family. - The property itself was clean and well maintained. The beach and pool in particular were some of the best I've seen. The beach had plenty of seating and a good deal of shade because of the many implanted palm trees and umbrellas. - The food at the restaurants was great. In fact, we ate at Limbo twice, and I still keep raving about how great of a meal it was. The bad: As I mentioned, not much...the only 2 things that I'd say is that the restaurants were tough to get reservations at (I'd recommend doing so before you arrive). The only other minor thing, was that the iron in the room did not have a "steam" function. Great!

The hotel was very clean. The beach was beautiful! The service was great. The only negative thing I can say about this resort is the fact that every time we would go to the lobby area, the hotel representatives would try to book us on different things and they were pretty aggressive about it. We were so annoyed that we would avoid going past their desk.

We loved the pool area but wish there was more entertainment or activities doing the day. We had 3 different rooms because we were not happy with the conditions of the room. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The food and drinks was average and when I got home I was sick for almost 2 weeks, I was diagnosed with Salmonella Poisoning. Would not go to this resort again.
