We were a week in the ambar and the time passed way too quickly. Gladly we would have stayed longer. The rooms are big, modern, clean and peaceful. A hair dryer, toiletries, coffee maker and minibar is everything available. The hotel is nice green and quiet. Only the helicopter flights over the beach are temporarily somewhat annoying. However, these almost everywhere in Punta Cana. The beach section was great. There was even enough shady spots in the hig …  read hotel review

Super nice holiday in a beautiful hotel with super delicious food and nice staff! The staff was always at work and still always nice! The only thing that we missed, is a x information map in the room over for example, opening hours of the restaurants, which restaurants you should visit, which one has actually constantly in other resorts food and drink, etc.)! read hotel review

The adult hotel ambar is located in a complex with a total of 7 hotels. The various hotels are in a beautiful park embedded. The transfer of individual hotels is fluent. Only exception is the hotel ambar. Here at each access by means of signs identified, that a adult hotel. The amenities (à la carte restaurants, swimming pools, etc.), of the entire plant be used. The exception is here again the hotel ambar. The area of the hotel ambar may only from ambar guests or institutions brown/black bracelets (guests, from 4. time or the guests the use of the ... entire plant booked) be enjoyed. From the airport to the main reception of the area brought. It is immediately by small vehicles intended for the reception of hotel ambar. Here, the check-in. The hotel ambar is located directly on the beach and beitzt a private beach area, the rest of the beach of the hotel is distinguished. Location: From the airport to the hotel the transfer took about 25 minutes. The hotel is beautifully located, directly on the beach. On the plant shooting more properties at. Outside of the plant (except beach) we were not. Service: The check-in was unkkompliziert and fast. The ladies and gentlemen at the reception speak very good english and are very helpful. The servers at the various bars and in the main restaurant were always very friendly and courteous. The maids were very, very friendly. The worst impression the guest relation were made. I had the impression, that the guests partly annoying some. Complaints were only with emphasis taken. In our case we had complained, that during the vacation the use of the w-lan in the lobby from 24h daily 1 hour free daily was reduced. In our contract with FTI is no time limit to syndromal. We gave the lady of the tourist reletaion explained, that a unilateral change, and we herzu the opinion of the hotel manager want to hear. This was promised. We have no response is; despite repeated complaint. Rooms: The rooms are very spacious and feature either 2 queen beds or 1 king bed. We had a room with queen size beds. These are very comfortable and pleasantly hard. Each room has a balcony (also in the ground floor). The bathroom has a nice, big shower and a bath tub with water jets. An electronic safety deposit box is available. An i-pad fits on the way. For a laptop, it is too small. All rooms are the same size. Housekeeping comes by during the day and evenings. It only at night the beds are uncovered, fresh towels and a chocolate chocolate on the bed. Housekeeping makes altogether a great job. Everything was clean. There was neither dust nor from unpleasant animals in the rooms. Cleanliness: I have as yet no area seen, so cleaned and polished as this. There were bspw. The walkways outside scrubbed, the handrails in the staircases polished and the water in the small pool was drained, so that the beach chairs can be cleaned. In all restaurants was constantly swept, cleaned. And all this without pushy on the guest to work. Food: What can you write. Try the food itself. in the main restaurant there was breakfast, lunch and dinner. Since we didn't have breakfast, i shall confine myself to the description on the lunch and dinner, The buffet was not huge, but tastefully from lebensmitteleinsatz. There is always an american, a Dominik. And a pasta corner. In the evening there is always a country than slogan. These issues are repeated every week, There are plenty of fish (glassy fried), meat and poultry. As well as salads, beiligen, fruit, delicious dessert and the usual. The chefs at the meat was roast on request also a piece of beef or fish, the it at the evening not on the buffet is. At the beach there was another restaurant. This has from noon until 18,00 open. The choice is a slimmed-down form from the main restaurant. In hotel ambar itself are 3 à la carte restaurants (italian/portofino, mediterranean/olivio, exclusive kitchen / Don Pablo). The latter one can only once per stay. It was the only, which we used. Because of the read reviews we expected a lot. The expectations were not fulfilled. The food is good, but not excellent. So was the steak from my friend rather 'done' as' medium ' and my hummerschwanz was fried to long and dry. Sport: The whole complex is so extensive, that it even a designated jogging path with a length of slightly more than 2 kilometer there. Here i have in my round always some other runner seen. In the ambar there is a private fitness studio. It is always with 1-2 staff manned. Towels were not always available. I finally towels from our bathroom taken. The studio consisted of two rooms. A cardio room with 2 treadmills, circa 5 spinning bikes, 2 cross trainers and a, two devices, i no longer separately appoint. The läufbänder were already a bit older. The other cardio machines i didn't use. The 2. room consists of a geräe tower, short - and barbells. Opening hours of 08,00-20,00. In the whole area there is another studio. Since i am not, Park area: It is very well-kept, with extensive because of between the different hotels/buildings. Also here always gardeners to see. There are 4 bus lines with 'bus'. So you have to walk from the hotel to the theater not run. Entertainment: In the lobby every night music until about 22,00. This is music from the dj, a solo-guitarists, etc. are. Saturdays were different events on the beach or pool. In the whole area there was a theater. Here in the evening itself weekly repeating shows. The circus as well as the Michael-jackson show i can recommend it. there is also in the vicinity of the theater a large courtyard with geshäften, souvenir shops, a casino and sports bar. On the stage of the courtyard you will also find the show in the theater events. We were twice in the evening there. The show and the band were ok. We then decided to go to the lobby to stay than in the carrée to go. Particularly the service in the carrée only with the beginning of the show starts. If you sat yourself before there, there is no service. Liquid diet: The nationalgetränkt mammaghuana (no guarantee for the right spelling) try. Very delicious. The cocktails are delicious. There are Baileys on wine, sparkling wine, gin, rum, whisky everything. Of course, there is also a map for pay drinks (bottles and whskies ). Since the quality of the beverages included in the price so high was, we didn't ordered. Beach/pool: In the first days of our holiday the hotel was fully booked. This meant, that shortly before 10,00 in the morning all the beach chairs at the pool were full. There are only a very small part of the guests were german. The pool situation after about one week somewhat improved. Early risers are still clear in the advantage. There is a main pool and a ehem. Children's pool. In the latter is the water a bit warmer and there are 10-12 chairs in the water available. The main pool has a swim-up bar. Here there is the entire drinks range. At the pool and at the beach are constantly running nice waiters rum, the orders for fizzy drinks record. Also here was constantly being cleaned, the trash cans emptied and cleaned. The beach has postcarc-standard. Beautiful. Wide and very long. The sea becomes relatively quickly deep. Stones or like i didn't see/noticed. At the beach there was a tower with lifeguards. The tower was also always the flag for the sea hoist. The green i have stayed in the two weeks never seen. During our stay, it was once more, sometimes less stormy. One day there was even red geflaggt. The beach upstream is a reef. This cancels the heavy waves, which was also necessary. Still the sea was still quite kabbelig. Check-out: For a late check-out on the day of departure you de ask reception. Per verlängerungsstunde then American Dollar 10 immediately in cash to pay. Although the hotel was fully booked, we have an extension of 2 hours Guests: During our stay there were about 80% americans and canadians since. Then spanish/ lateinamerk. Guests. We were almost the only german. Conclusion: I can the hotel ambar highly recommend. The peace of the adult guests can relax. In principle i had the impression, that in hotel ambar less full and hectic was like in the other 6 hotels. The word 'exclusive' in the name of the hotel you will find during our stay in the hotel again. read hotel review
