What a great trip! A friend of mine and I decided we wanted to take a girls trip and we're so happy we decided to stay at the Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar. The beach was great, including the drink service. A special thanks to Hensel for being so attentive to my friend and I as we lounged on the beach. The food was amazing at the buffet and specialty restaurants. I especially enjoyed my meal at Portofino (Italian fare). I've never been a fan of spending time at the pool with the ocean so close by. However, my experience at the pool was amazing and I'll now consider pool time as essential on my next resort trip. Our room was spacious, the beds were comfortable, and the entire room was spotless. All musts in my book when traveling!
My friend and I visited the spa and both of us enjoyed our massages and would recommend a visit to the spa. A special thanks to Karen for a great massage. I had never stayed at an all adult resort and I was a little worried that it was going to be boring. It wasn't! Plus, since the Ambar location is part of the Gran Bahia Principee complex guests of the Ambar can take full advantage of the offerings of the other resorts (4 in total in the complex). The trolley system that transported guests to different areas was so cool! Finally, the service at the Ambar was great...guest services, reception, concierge, waiters, bartenders, etc...
I only have one area of improvement for the resort. The service when you arrive at the main entrance for the resort complex wasn't that great. I think due to the sheer volume of people arriving and departing more staff should have been available for assistance. After traveling hours from NYC I didn't feel very welcomed when I first arrived at the main entrance. However, the welcome and service, once I arrived at the Ambar was better.
