We stayed at ambre in June/July and booked through Thomson holidays. After a long flight and a hours transfer from the airport we where greated at reception by plenty of people who quickly checked us in and offered us breakfast and a cold flannel.
After they showed us to our room our luggage soon came after.
The rooms are modern and spacious with a large shower and a separate w/c.
The balcony area is small and there was no room around the table and chairs.
Now the hotel has got pros and cons, so I'll start with the good points.
All the staff have a smile on their face and nothing is too much trouble for them.
There are 3 restaurants, the buffet restaurant served a wide variety of foods which all ways tasted great.
The beech restaurant only opened every other night and was in a beautiful setting, again the food tasted great.
The Italian restaurant again served great food with a relaxed environment.
There was never a problem getting a sun lounger either around the pool or on the beech, but this may have been down to that we travelled in the winter season.
The spa was in a great location over looking the beach.
Now onto the problems!!!!
The pool was so cold.
DOGS AND CATS....
They would wonder around the beach and pool area begging for food and the cats would even walk into the Italian restaurant.
The beach restaurant would have dogs around the tables and this was mainly due to the idiots that would feed them scraps from their plates. The last thing I wanted was stray dogs which could have had fleas or any disease begging for food around my feet. We even witnessed on one occasion a waiter trying to persuade a dog away from the tables only for the dog to turn nasty and growl and show it's teeth at him. This happened right at the side of me and my wife.
The hotel is trying to eradicate this problem, but unless the fools that feed them stop feeding them I can't see the hotel getting on top of the issue. I'm sure that if the "dog whispers" where to be sat at home they would not encourage stray dogs like they did whilst I was away, I now see that people even encouraged the stray animals into their rooms and let them sleep there!!!!
All in all we had a great 2 weeks away BUT it would have been so much better if the dogs would have not been able to drink out of the pools and also residents feeding the muts....
