My husband and I stayed at the Ambar the week of April 7th. Our overall experience was excellent! The grounds were beautiful and the staff work very hard. The staff is very friendly however we witnessed some rude guests. These are the people who turn it around and say that the staff are rude. If you want a vacation in New York City and the fast pace then you should vacation there. This is an island. People need to relax and stop being so demanding. I treat people how I like to be treated.
The food was very good at all the restaurants and the buffet was just as good! The waiters were overly attentive. We treated them as people and would enjoy conversations with them instead of being demanding and complaining. I asked how there day was and about themselves. I go on vacation to enjoy different cultures and the language. I don't speak Spanish but I enjoy learning!
Our room was clean and the fridge was stocked daily. I wrote a nice note the first day and asked for lots of extra water...AND we received LOTS of extra water! The fridge worked fine and the beds were comfortable. Staff came twice a day with clean towels and yummy chocolates on our pillows each night. We were in room 65310 and it was great...in the middle of the complex so a perfect location for us.
We go on vacation to relax and to have fun. I don't go with a list of criteria to be met. If your attitude stinks so will your vacation. Leave that at home and perhaps yourself.
This place isn't for snobby people..go to your Ritz-Carltons' for that!
We loved this resort and definitely are returning next April!!!
