Our Opinion

Great luxury resort. This resort is suited for couples who are wanting a relaxing and quiet getaway in Punta Cana. It should be advised that this resort is quieter than other resorts in Punta Cana. There aren't as many activities or entertainment held here. The beach area is very big, so there is plenty of places to lounge. Amazing and luxurious rooms. There are great buffet items available. The a la cartes are also top-notch. Make sure to check out the French Gourmet Restaurant. Very friendly staff.


Overview
Step into a world of beauty and privilege at this elegant adults-only, upscale resort with unlimited à la carte dining. Enjoy the luxury and attentive service that reflects the essence of the Don Pablo Collection, Bahia Principe's high end brand of hotels!

Location: Directly on a beautiful white-sand beach in Playa Bavaro. Approximately 40 minutes from Punta Cana airport and 50 minutes from Higuey.

Well Done for An All-Inclusive Resort

Ambar Blue was our first experience in a Bahia Principe resort as well as our first visit to Punta Cana. Positive notes:• Having numerous resorts sharing one property provided a much larger area to walk around, more restaurants and pool to choose from than a stand-alone resort does.• Breakfasts had a nice variety.• Beach vendors were not overly intrusive.• Pools and pool bars closed early alleviating the overly inebriated crowds found at many all-inclusives• The upgrade is worth it, mostly. We paid for the VIP/Premier (black bands) which afforded us the opportunity to make dinner reservations weeks prior to our arrival. I don’t think we could have gotten seatings without these early reservations.• Room service was easy to order, delivered promptly and presented well. Coffee and breakfast were nice.• Anyela at the reception desk was a dream. Her beautiful smile and helpful attitude, even when guests really pressed their luck, was the epitome and superior guest services.• Alex at check-in, cart drivers Julio and Sandy and Lewis the concierge all provided pleasant, helpful and efficient services.• On Valentine’s day, the entire resort was decorated, some staff was costumed, pictures with cupid were available. In the sitting areas they had shows, chocolates, sparkling toasts, etc. A rose and chocolates were left in our rooms. A great deal of effort was put forth to make it a fun and special evening. We appreciated all their thoughtful and whimsical preparations.• Maintenance was prompt. We had an issue with the TV and remote and they we both fixed by the afternoon.Areas for improvement: • After paying for the black bands that give access to premium spirits, the maids should be allowed to stock the in-room fridges with the premium beer when requested• Even Premier guests had purchase inexpensive bubbly (Friexenet cava) and despite repeated requests we could not get a wine list to have wine in our room. We also could not decipher the code to get premium liquor from the pool bars.• While the staff was pleasant, they should be instructed to find assistance when they do not understand the guest’s request.• Maiko Japanese restaurant was cooked at the table but without any teppanyaki showmanship as is expected. We were asked to relocate to another room to have dessert.• Overall the food was average even though it was spread across multiple restaurants. Portofino food was cold.

Relaxing & luxury holiday!

Stayed here for 2 weeks in July, had a really nice time & enjoyed ourselves. Buffet food was lovely with good variety. Beach was absolutely amazing!! Pool area nice and chilled as this is adults only - no kids jumping or screaming so can relax. Staff waiters fab during day, regularly getting you drinks around the pool etc. Make sure to check out Coco Bongos it was such a good night! Many restrauntes on the complex however make sure you book when you arrive as they book up fast & make sure males take pants to wear to the restrauntes as we were told we didn't need them and was turned away when we had booked! Think this was for the al le carte restraunte as we had no trouble with some of the other ones. Was not happy as we had no choice but to go back to buffet which we had been eating at every night! Also, this complex is very big so takes a while to walk to the beach & lobby depending on where your room is. Overall we had a lovely stay.

Beautiful resort, decent food.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.We were in a building midway between lobby and beach which was convenient.The Ambar (adults only) section is relatively small so not too far to anything.Premium rum is available at the pool bar which was nice.Beach bar is also handy but no premium.A La Cartes were all decent but Gourmet was the best of the lot.Buffet was very well stocked with plenty of options and food quality was very good.House wine at the resort everywhere was horrible although we have been back to the Dominican since to other resorts and it was better.Ambar pool is private and they do monitor that no others from the Bavaro section use the adults only parts which is nice. You have your own roped off beach section as well.Rooms were very nice. Pillow menu was a neat touch.I would recommend this resort to friends.Also don't miss Punta Cana Mike's Dominican adventure Tour. We did it for the first time on this trip and again just this year it was so enjoyable.

  • Alison A :
Gorgeous gardens, best beach, and best BATHROOMS in the Caribbean.

We have stayed at Bahia in Riviera Maya and this resort was even nice. First - the beach and water were incredible. You can walk the beach forever. Plenty of places to enjoy sun or shade. Great swimming. The gardens were amazing (tropical plants are our hobby) and the resort was immaculate. I'm not really a foodie but dining was a pleasant experience because of the great staff. The room was very nice but the bathroom was great. Water pressure. Hot water pressure. (Guess you can tell I was in Cuba last year). I would recommend it. Lovely, lovely, place.

Fabulous first time experience!

This was my first time visiting the Dominican Republic and my first time staying at an all inclusive resort. The Bahia Principe is like a campus of resorts, I thought that was very cool! We had access to all other parts of the resort but we also had everything we needed in our sub-resort, the Ambar Blue. It is obvious that the staff works very hard to make sure that the guests are enjoying themselves to the max! The staff was also extremely friendly, a dramatic difference from my home in Chicago. I found myself saying hi to everyone I walked by! (At home we avoid eye contact) The can can be treacherous, I got extremely burnt on a cloudy day so never stop lathering on the sunscreen! There were absolutely no bugs! I was very shocked about this because I expected to see some massive bugs, but I did not encounter a single one and I am very thankful for that! I enjoyed that the Ambar Blue is adults only and I had the most fun doing zumba by the pool and dancing with the caribbean party at night!! :D
