Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar--Entertainment & Pool Activities

My girlfriend and I are going to the Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar next month, and were both in our mid-20's. I did some research and understand that the Ambar is one of the "quieter" resorts in the Bahia Principe Complex. Although we do not mind some peace and quiet at times, we do enjoy the various fun and sometimes humorous pool activities that the entertainment crew holds. From the various reviews, the Ambar would probably not be the best place for this (correct me if Im wrong). So I'm wondering where in the Bahia Principe Complex do they hold these types of activities? Is it at the main pool near the beach? or at the smaller oos at the other resorts? Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Most activities are held at the main pool near the beach. Also there is no night time entertainment at the Ambar itself - for that you also have to use the main resorts next door.

I've got the same concerns. I'm booked at Ambar but like to be around some action....but in an adults only complex. Not sure if I've booked the best resort but can cancel without penalty and book elsewhere.

I've got some time to keep doing my research...lol.

for a adults only hotel with activities during the day right on the adults only grounds you may want to have a look on the newly opened Breathless Resort.

i did not visit that hotel myself, but it is a full adults only hotel, not just a small quiet section within a family resort, and they run all day long adults appropriate activities at pool and/or beach.

have fun

Ambar doesn't have a lot of "active" activities. The Punta Cana and Bavaro sections are more jumping. You are a short walk from their beach/pool. You'll find lots of fun stuff in their lobbies at night and then you can go to the Karaoke bar later. You have The best of both worlds. The advantages of Ambar and the activities of the other resorts. You'll be fine.

but what's here named the advantage of the Ambar, isn't more than a area with a relaxed and very quiet vibe, something i love a lot on vacay. but a relaxed quiet area will be found at every adults only resort/hotel/section in the area.

at a property like the Breathless you don't need to hopp on a Train to visit the more active areas of the large resort.

i think firstly it should be decided by own taste/preferences if a very large resort is what is looked for or a smaller easy to come around property where all is close by.

euro19,

If you send me your email address, I can forward the "activity Listing" to you on all the Bahia resorts including the Ambar.

In the interim, the Ambar does have the White Night beach party (weather permitting) which is very popular along with the recent addition of the Pool Party on alternative Saturday evenings from 9-12 midnight, where guests can actually swim (pool bar open until 11:30pm) and dancing takes place on the pool deck.

The Pool Party

1. Celebrated on the Ambar pool deck

2. From 9pm to 12 midnight

3. Lots of music for all to enjoy

4. Open Bar

5. Pool is open for swimming

6. Pool Bar is open until 11:30pm

7. Lots of special lighting effects

8. Snack foods available

Every second Saturday night there is a White Night Party on the Beach at the Ambar resort - here are the details:

They do advise Ambar guests only by invitation, one or two days prior to the event - weather permitting. Guests of the Esmeralda are not advised however, they may also join in on the fun provided they do not have children under 18 years of age attending with them.

1. Celebrated by the beach bar area on the beach.

2. Big screen with a projector to show videos.

3. Live DJ with a large variety of music for all to enjoy.

4. Open Bar for the entire event. (9:00 PM until everyone leaves).

5. Lots of special effects lighting to create ambiance. (DISCO LIGHTS).

6. They also place four sets of tables and chairs that have special lighting to create a nice look.

7. Welcome drinks in a Coconut with or without alcohol.

8. Waiters taking drink orders for the guest sitting around the event in chairs and tables.

9. Tiki torches are lit to light up a path to the event.

There is a live band playing in the main lobby each evening. At either the pool or beach they have beach yoga, horeshoes, gym exercise in the pool, zumba/merengue/bachata dancing, salsa, & bocce.

As mentioned above, for lively pools - take a short walk over to the beach pool for the Bavaro & Punta Cana resorts.

For other nightly entertainment there are the nightly shows at the Tropicana Theatre for all guests of the Bahia:

Monday - Michael Jackson at 8:20 pm and 9:25 pm

Tuesday – Comedy/International at 8:20 pm and 9:25 pm.

Wednesday – Legends Gala Show at 8:20 pm and 9:25 pm.

Thursday - Circus of Dreams at 8:20 pm and 9:25 pm.

Friday – Mens versus Women at 8:20 pm and 9:25 pm.

Saturday – Grammy’s/N’Boggie Show at 8:20 pm and 9:25 pm.

Sunday – Azuka Show/Mr. Bahia at 8:20 pm and 9:25 pm.

These are the show times for the high season – in low season there is one show per night at 9:30pm.

All resorts share the large shopping and entertainment area called the Pueblo Principe which contains the Casino (drinks are extra there as it is not owned by the resort), disco, smoke shop, kareoke and sports bar, patio lounge, many clothing, gift and jewellery shops, internet shop, local vendors with their wares, an outdoor stage where a house band and audience participation nights are often held each evening as well as a special event with professional entertainers called "Caribbean Show" on Friday evenings at 8:30pm for a small fee.

The resort offers all guests, bicycles for on resort use, mini golf, tennis courts and tennis pro for those so inclined to obtain lessons at a small fee, beach volleyball, archery, soccer field, and a segway guided tour(which is at a small fee), throughout the resort, at the Sports Centre. Also located at the Sports Centre is a "Fun Maker Park" which has bumper cars, sorb Ball, eco skating, F1 remote control cars race and some arcade games like Basket, air hockey, eco-ice skating surface, kikkers, trampoline apparatus and is open every day from 10am to 10pm and also is at a small fee for both children and adults.

Hope this does help.
