Top shelf whiskey

Does anyone know if the Ambar serves top shelf whiskey such as Crown Royal?

We're at the Ambar right now and that list is now out of date. Almost all the premium Whiskeys on that list are now included free of charge, including Candian club if you like Canadian Whiskey. I had Chivas Regal, Jack Daniels, and Johnnie Walker Black label last night. All the vodka is now free as well, as is Kahlua.

Many of the premium brands are only available at the lobby bar, but there are also some international brands available at the pool bar.

Yes I can confirm that as I was there over Xmas and was surprised to see that virtually ALL the drinks are now included - which was nice. :-))

There is a very good choice there now actually.

Hopefully they keep it this way for a while- this changing back and forth is not good for business. The Ambar was on our short list to return to this year but one of the reasons we ruled it out was because other resorts we also were looking at returning to had better international drinks included. I know it's a small thing but when deciding between some of these resorts the small things can make the difference.

We also loved dining at the Ambar a la cartes when we were there several years ago and are somewhat disappointed they now only have 2 at the Ambar itself. Still hoping they reopen the 3rd one soon.

Is there are restriction on the number of drinks a person can order per bar and per day??

I read a very dated forum post that mentioned this.

Please advise

There is no restrictions on what and how much you order and much of the service is waitress so you don't even have to get up if you don't want to. I counted at least 10 Whiskies including several 12 year olds.

They constantly went round the lobby bar asking what you wanted and there were pool waitresses too.

Bear in mind that if you go to other parts of the complex you do not get all the drinks included at the Ambar but there are always some premium ones on offer.

There are no restrictions on the number of drinks one consumes whatsoever.

The only restrictions one will find in the entire Bahia resort complex is at the Casino. Since the Casino is not actually owned by the resort, drinks served there are to be paid for independently.

I hope this does help you.
