- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Step into a world of beauty and privilege at this elegant adults-only, upscale resort with unlimited a la carte dining. The Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar Blue section is located closest to the beach with spacious and elegantly appointed junior suites. 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.
This hotel is fabulous. The staff are really helpful and always have a smile on their faces. They love to dance and will get you involved. The rooms are wonderful with four poster beds and large sofa with table and chairs to sit at inside and on the terrace. Tea and coffee making facilities in our room and a mini bar stocked up every day with soft drinks water and beer and small bottles if whiskey vodka and rum and crisps- if you want more drinks or crisps you only have to ask and you get them. The main buffet restaurant is great with a wide choice of food and a different theme each night but men need to cover their shoulders at night for dinner or you will get turned away. The entertainment is brilliant with something for all ages of adults. The ex fusions from the hotel are fabulous and well organised. You can have your own butler who will unpack and pack your cases for you and also look after you during your stay. Stayed here for 2 weeks and loved every minute. Would definitely recommend it. Don't understand why some people give it a low rating as we found nothing to complain about.
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.
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.
Check-in was a nightmare and it took an extremely long time to get to the room. Service was pretty poor, overall. The food was mediocre. The "free" internet did not work. There was a casino on the property but half the machines don't work. I didn't play the table games - I left and went to the real casino. There are plenty of better places to stay in Punta Cana. I would definitely recommend looking elsewhere.
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.
