So.. late 20s girlfriend and I'm mid 30s. We stayed at the Ambar from March 20th to the 24th.
Food was typical buffet style so not much to say about that; it's good for a 3-4 night stay and for sure can get old on a week long stay.
Beach area was good but that goes for the whole punta cana area. We did notice that the Ambar beach water area was closer roped in than other resorts so it does somewhat feels like a corral after a swim elsewhere. The beach chairs thing.. we always found some, but we definitely are the kind of people who don't mind being a few rows out. Service from the bar was excellent.
The pool was good but seemed under staffed at the busiest time to the point where I would leave the swim up and get faster service just around the other side (dry) od the bar.. kind of defeating the swim up deal.
We were there for the Saturday night pool party.. it was fun.
The room was nice and big. The only complaint I had, and it could of been a building 61 problem, was a septic sewage smell.. I think it was coming up from the shower but sometimes we smelled it in the hall.. dunno..
The staff was very good but in a typical all inclusive style.. nothing fantastic there. This place didn't feel 5 star to me..
