Myself, my partner and another couple stayed at the Ambre from the 14th July until the 28th. We all had an amazing time and left the Ambre and Mauritius with fond memories that will last a lifetime.
The hotel itself, is stunning, immaculately clean with beautiful surroundings. The beach and pool area is incredible and so relaxing. The pool this time of year is pretty cold though!
Our rooms were kept perfectly clean to a very high standard every day throughout the 2 weeks we were there, can't thank the maids enough.
The restaurants are also to a high standard. We enjoyed all 3 restaurants. La plage was favourite for dinner, coral snack bar for lunch and indigo buffet for breakfast. We did eat at dolce vita a few times and the food was nice there also, however we enjoyed the other restaurants more. The steak at la plage is INCREDIBLE! Staff in every area were brilliant and gave wonderful service!
We booked a catamaran trip with Mcloud on the beach, amazing trip and well worth the money. We found chris to be really annoying, and literally wouldn't leave us alone, I get it's his living, but jeez he was persistent...so we decided not to give him our money.
We also went to casela and did the lion interaction. I honestly couldn't recommend this trip enough! Brilliant experience. Also did a Segway Safari whilst here which was so much fun.
We booked thousand colours, valley de ferney and swimming with dolphins through Thomson. Thousand colours and the dolphins were incredible, valley de ferney not so unfortunately. Very overpriced. Made the most of the day however and still had a nice time.
Booked a couples massage at the spa which was perfect! After you book a treatment you can use spa facilities for the rest of your stay (jacuzzi,sauna,steam room) it was gorgeous at the spa, peaceful and beautiful!
Now for the biggy... Stray dogs... We are all dog lovers And found the dogs to be very friendly and took a shine to one in particular (black and white boy). They were all lovely and mostly minded their own business.
That said however I think feeding the dogs by the pool and by the restaurants is bang out of order and shows no respect whatsoever for the hotel staff and even fellow guests who may not be very confident with stray animals. Allowing them to sleep in your room aswell is disgusting. I mean common guys, that's seriously gross. Who knows what you could catch.
In my opinion people need to be reminded that these dogs are strays and no matter how domesticated they may appear they are unpredictable and it is only a matter of time before someone gets injured...and this won't be the dogs fault...it will be the guests for allowing the situation to get that far.
I have a heart, and do agree its awful wondering if they have had a meal today, where they are going to sleep. But they have lived their whole lives this way and are used to it. I really hope the hotel finds a solution to the problem that keeps the dogs safe and keep the hotel at such a high standard.
To sum it up, this hotel is a gem, on an incredibly beautiful island - and I wouldn't hesitate to holiday here again, we had such a wonderful time.
Go ahead, BOOK IT!!!!!!!!!!!
