However, these almost everywhere in Punta Cana. The beach section was great. There was even enough shady spots in the hig …  read hotel review

The gardens were unmatched. As a landscape architect i can appreciate all the hard work it took to keep the grounds this nice. I was in paradise. The people that work there ALL go out of their way for you! I felt like royalty. They all smile and offer to do anything for you to make your stay better. There are SO MANY to wait on you hand and foot. The service was tremendous. The spa has excellent therapists and my friend and i got a body scrub and deep tissue massage. The food was excellent at the menu resturants. ... We tried the three at Ambar. The buffet was good. I loved the breakfasts with the fresh squeezed orange juice and all the different choices. I also loved the shops. I cant say enough about this hotel. read hotel review

It was a wonderful vacation. Except for the room, in which from the beginning many things did not work. But we settled this with the hotel itself. The staff are super friendly and nice. The Ambar resort is rather more luxurious than others in the area. No screaming children. The extensive restaurants are very varied. We would go back. read hotel review
