My girlfriend and I just got back from the Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar, and for the second year in a row had an amazing vacation here at the Ambar. The level of service and attention to detail is excellent. All the staff seems happy and goes out of their way to serve you and make you feel at home. The resort grounds are beautiful, pool is excellent, and beach is amazing. At the Ambar you never have to worry about finding a seat at the pool or the beach, there are plenty available at all hours of the day. The food had not changed since last year; the buffets are very good, lots of choice, especially breakfast (go see Rodolfo for the best omelettes!!). The a la cartes : Don Pablo is AMAZING and a MUST!!; El Olivio was great!!; I was disappointed with the PortoFino, then again the pasta was ok, but I had friends who had the meat and said it was great; Garden Grill Steak House was very good, excellent burger!!; Makio was probably our other favourite, soooo good and best dessert! (Fried Ice cream!! mmmm). All the meat at this resort is just amazing and cooked to perfection!! The drinks here are awesome! Try the Estella Tropical and their Daiquiris!! The beach was great, beautiful white sand and clear turquoise water. Our room was very large, spacious and super clean (we had a corner room on the 3rd floor). Maid service daily was great and always left plenty of towels, water and mini fridge was stocked daily. The only little complaint I would have this year is that on three occasions the food was cold at the buffet, not hot; and the beach party was a bit of a let down because the entertainers were not as it in to it as last year; so they didn't make everyone dance and really get the party going. Other than those two little complaints, we had an excellent vacation and I would highly recommend this resort, all around solid 5 star!!!
