Everything you could want from a island holiday... You got! Beautiful island, beautiful people and beautiful weather. I would advise to go later on the year as Feb is still technically winter but it reached 28°c, had a couple storms but on the whole good. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful however we were coaxed into the privilege club where they wanted us to pay an obscene amount for this club...wasted an hour of my holiday. And I had to wait over 3 hours for my room service once but other than that it was nice. Ambar was very nice but all sectors were close by and the beach was clean and not too packed. Wouldn't go back as there isn't much to do there other than sunbath a Or visit surrounding islands but would recommend this hotel.
The best of the best!
This was our 4th time to the Bahia resort in Punta Cana we have also stayed at the Luxury Bahia twice in Jamaica and once in Mexico. In regards to this resort we have stayed on the Punta Cana side, Aquamarine side twice (formerly known as Luxury Ambar Green) and this time when we went we decided to pay the little extra to stay at the Luxury Ambar side and it was worth every penny. Upon arrival we were upgraded to the corner room because we are repeat guests. Everything from the food, to the staff, the beach, room service, the room, the grounds, activities and entertainment is 5 star. I would rate it a 10 if I had the option. To begin, the food at every buffet is top notch. I highly recommend the a la carte restaurants more specifically, Portofino, Limbo, and the Meat. We ended up going to the M.E.A.T restaurant 3 times because it was that good. In the morning we went to the breakfast buffet in the lobby however, the beach buffet "las brisas" was a lot better as I found it had a lot more options and you could eat breakfast with a view and lunch. They also have a coffee shop which we went to every day because their cappuccinos were to die for! The staff treat you like absolute gold! I have been to resorts where staff could be very rude but every time we have been here they have always been kind and went above and beyond for us. The rooms were gorgeous, clean and modern and I found it very convenient to have a butler at the bottom of our villa as we had no reason to ever have to go to the front desk. In addition, whenever you ordered room service the butler made sure the food got to your room in a timely fashion and even called to ask how it was. The rooms are cleaned every day and restocked. And they even come at night to bring you fresh towels. The entertainment is amazing throughout the day, and there is always something to do at night. We always went to the square or the sports bar and played pool or air hockey. The square consists of a sports bar with karaoke, a club, a casino and many shops they also do shows there as well. As you are on the luxury side you have access to the other resorts so you can always find some form of show or entertainment at each of the different lobby's throughout the resort. We also visited the gym which is very modern and had a lot of gym equipment to offer. The beach is amazing, you have your own side where the staff are always coming around to ask you for drinks. We would stay at the beach for half the day and the pool for the other half. It is difficult to find chairs at the pool at times but we always did find them! All in all this resort makes you feel like royalty and we will be back! I cannot recommend this place enough. Please ignore any negative reviews and book ASAP you will not regret it.
Shocking and TRUTHFUL
The hotel and staff appeared good until the people in the next room to us joined the Privilege Club! They were rowdy and extremely rude but we were told that because they were Privilege members they could do as they pleased to the expense of other guests, even OUR sun lounger! We had to move rooms as the anti-social behaviour was so bad, yes .... we were expected to move even though we had been there three nights before the awful guests arrived. Complained to hotel management to no avail. Written complaint to the hotel on arrival back to Uk, again not interested. TUI sorted out to our satisfaction. Dirty bed linen, dirty and broken toilet, air conditioner didn’t work and reported to no avail.Also so called a la carte restaurants not available, managed to book two which were both awful and certainly not a la carte. Won’t be returning and certainly won’t be using this Group again. There are alot of good ratings which I also would have given but future guests need to be aware that you are certainly not appreciated where a Privilege member is involved
November trip 2019
We booked this hotel based on reviews and friends recommendations. I will keep it short since most details can be found in previous reviews. We were in building 61, top floor, happy with the location. Spacious room, close to the pool and beach. The wi-fi was a bit confusing, you should be able to just connect to Ambar... Really enjoyed both buffets, happy with the quality, choice, and service. Usually ate at Las Palmas by the pool for lunch since it was closer to the beach. A big thumbs up to managers Damian and Carlos, who took care of a few special requests for us, Thank you. Rodulfo and Ramon were so constantly happy and friendly. At the main buffet, try to sit in Ezekial or Ruth's section, they are awesome. At the MEAT restaurant, Germain will take good care of you. And thank you Glenny for keeping our room in top shape. The steak at the MEAT restaurant was good, ate there twice. The Italian restaurant could have a few more choices. As much as we enjoyed our stay, I can't say that we will be back. Why? We prefer smaller resorts since we're only there for 6 days and don't feel like wandering around. Also, we felt that the beach (which was great for swimming) was crowded. But that's just us, as many people enjoy large resorts. One thing I wish we could have experienced is the new bar/restaurant Las Olas, right at the beach. It looked like it would be a lot of fun, but only opened 2 days after we left. But don't let us deter you, the hotel is super clean, excellent staff, good food and lots to see. Who knows, maybe we will see you again. Thank you for the great holiday. Rick & Judie from Montreal.
Wonderful place to relax in the sun surrounded by sea and sand.
This was the second time My daughter and I have stayed at the Bahia Principe Amber Hotel having visited previously in 2017. We arrived on 28 February for a three week holiday. We travelled with Tui and had booked a private transfer from the Airport because we didn’t want to wait ages on a coach in the car park. We were met by our driver immediately on exiting the Airport and driven the 16 miles approx to the Hotel. As we had been there before we knew the routine, the taxi drops you off at a reception area you are then taken by a little train with your luggage to the Amber reception, here you leave your cases and book in at reception, you are fitted with a magnetic bracelet which gives you access to your room. You are taken to your accommodation by your ‘butler ‘ who then explains where everything is and how the gadgets all work! Your luggage is delivered separately by a Bell Boy. The Room we had was on the second floor near to the pool and beach . Two large double beds, large walk in shower, separate toilet. Mini bar containing soft drinks, water and miniature bottles of Vodka, whiskey and rum, refilled on a daily basis. There was 24 hour room service , towels k changed daily. There was a large private balcony overlooking the garden. If you had a ground floor room there was a swim up pool. There was a very effective air conditioning feature too. We had a great choice of eating places but you had to make reservations for the al a carte restaurants this you could do via the internet or through your Butler! The buffets were excellent with great variety and choice. You could have breakfast at the beach restaurant if you wanted to. Plenty of sun beds round the pool and on the beach, and even more important plenty of sun shades! Wonderful beach you can walk for miles, clean sand, water sports etc. You can book excursions at reception or at the kiosk by the pool. There is a well equipped Gym and spa . round the pool there is daily entertainment ie water aerobics, yoga, volleyball, games etc. I would just warn you that the music is played VERY LOUD! The staff are very helpful and friendly especially the waitresses who bring your drinks round the pool, there is plenty of water available. There are no children allowed in the pool or on that part of the beach. Be aware that the Bahia Amber is part of a large complex covering a wide area, but we were never bothered by this, and you don’t have to walk anywhere unless you choose to because there are road trains going along all day into the early hours that you just flag down, good fun.
