Stayed for 9 nights at Ambre at the end of September into October. The setting is fantastic, a beautiful white beach with amazing turquoise water. The reception and pool area are stunning and make a definite first impression. Elsewhere, the resort begins to suffer. We moved rooms after a few nights as we found a cockroach in our room which must have been an unfortunate one off. The problem was quickly resolved and we were assisted in moving rooms. Staff seem to work very hard but there doesn’t seem to be great organisation or training. Small things like having to wait 10 minutes at breakfast to be asked if you’d like tea or coffee, reception staff not knowing that the premium paid for wifi is available throughout the hotel and not just in rooms, or booking one of the a la carte restaurants for dinner that evening, only to get there and find it’s closed that day. The food is of a good standard but certainly isn’t of the quality we’ve had at other four star resorts and if Minestrone Soup is something you like, look out for the alphabetical letters at their Italian restaurant, La Dolce Vita, but not before considering your dress code. Our rooms had pieces of skirting board missing, cracked tiles, and lacked slippers and dressing gowns which are sometimes expected at resorts of this kind. The free wifi provided in the reception area is very slow and if anyone is on a half board option, the village of Belle Mare is a 15 minute walk away up the beach to top up on essentials. Overall, a stunning setting but the service and food lacked the quality we would expect. As such, we wouldn’t return but would recommend the area and we are looking at the Lux Belle Mare for next year after visiting a couple of times and being wowed on a number of levels.

Room Tip: Choose a Superior Room. The extra space is worth the value. Belle Mare village is only a 15 minute walk for any essentials.

Simply stunning.......picture post card location....palm trees and white sands set within a lagoon bordered by a coral reef. The staff could not do enough for you ....I was ticked off for having the audacity to pour myself a drink!! The food was plentiful, freshly prepared and innovative. Everything you could possibly want is on this site - excellent gym, bikes for hire, boats - the lot and almost all within the all in package which in itself is absolutely excellent value for money. The company strive to set high standards - the staff are immaculately turned out and well disciplined. The rooms, restaurant and bar facilities are modern, airy and exceptionally clean. I only wished that some of the clientele had the courtesy to respect and abide by the restaurant dress code - it was such a shame to see the staff making such an effort and some slob wander in in flip flops and cut down denim. Please go - you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Book the sea front if you can and towards the centre.

Where to start? My hubby and I stayed at Ambre in August 2013 where we spent our honeymoon. From the moment we arrived we were pampered and treated like royalty. The service upon arrival was exceptionally good as well as throughout the stay. The service in all the restaurants were good but specifically at the a la carte restaurant. We were looked after by Vijay and he made sure we had a special table every night. The quality of the food was that of a 5 star restaurant in South Africa and we were very impressed. It is absolutely worth-it to pay a bit extra for the all inclusive package. The facilities on the property was good. We stayed in a Superior room and what I liked most is that the room is so spacious. Love the patio overlooking the beach. Definitely worth paying a bit extra for the Superior room. Overall it was a pleasurable experience and we will return to Ambre in the future.

The Ambre is in a superb position on the east side of the island. We enjoyed a wonderful relaxing holiday in this exceptional resort. From the moment we arrived the staff could not do enough to make our stay memorable. The rooms were large and airy and well furnished and clean. The fridge was stocked every morning with water, soft drinks, beer, cola, fresh milk and crisps and biscuits to nibble on. The beach was a stones throw away with an array of water sports available. We chose to relax on the loungers and observe the sights. The sea was turquoise and the sand like white pepper just like paradise. There were 3 restaurants all serving an excellent selection of food and a snack bar. The drinks were of exceptional choice and quality for all inclusive. I will definitely return in the future as the friendliness of the people on this island really impressed us.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a room with a sea view

Ambre provided a wonderfully indulgent holiday destination in a very special setting. Ambre (and Mauritius) is wecolming and friendly. The facilities at Ambre are fantastic - all you could want for a holiday where you could choose to be as active or inactive as you wish. Ah the "stress" of decision making. Our family had an absolute ball 10 days of bliss! The all inclusive package was decadence! The facilities a joy to be around and very we'll maintained. The activities available for use provide opportunities for lots of fun and spur of the moment exercise. The best advertisement I could give is that I would be back there again and again and again. ASAP really !

Room Tip: It would have been nice to have a room overlooking the sea but there are no unpleasant outlooks and the beach view is easily accessible. The layout of the resort is quite pleasing giving privacy in a communal space.
