stayed April 12-19 (over Easter)BP resorts are well-oiled machines; cleanliness and physical beauty are their brand. The staff work tirelessly to keep everything from the grounds to the presentation of food looking picture perfect. They also try hard to create special experiences for their guests (e.g. sunset champagne party, gin and tonic bar, beach party, etc.). check-in: like other travellers, the construction situation caused us to be in a construction-facing room on our arrival night, but we were promptly switched to another room the next day. I felt like BP staff were genuinely trying to make the best of a bad situation. However, it would have been nice to be told this at check-in rather than have us return to the lobby. But since we were expecting a less than smooth check-in, we just rolled with it.Food: great variety (perhaps a bit too much at times as there appeared to be a lot of food waste), fresh, seasonal, tasty. Would have been great if the buffet food was a tad hotter, but it's a feat preparing so much food for so many people. Kudos to the staff for continuously filling our plates and glasses with such delicacies. A la cartes were fun. The apps at the Italian restaurant were particularly memorable -- so plentiful and delicious. I also enjoyed the desserts -- not the typical buffet butter tart/carrot cake/brownie fare, but unique, regionally inspired and not overly sweet desserts.Service: friendly and prompt; not the same standards that we expect in N.America, but considering the language barrier, the service was very goodTips for first-timers: bring your own thermal cups (good for your beer and the planet). The towel game is a real thing this time of year, however we were able to find beach spots in the shade by the time we switched from pool to beach mid-afternoon. The resort is not known for its entertainment (e.g. compared to the Hard Rock), but there is a night life -- head to the resort Village in the evening. The resort is big, but not impossible to get around. We jogged a nice 4 km loop most mornings. We tipped, but not all the time and did not feel that staff expected tips in exchange for service.Overall this resort will leave you happy, especially considering it is well below $2000 CAD. We will be back.
We stayed from March 30th to April 13th in the new green section but got a room in building 71 which is considered green but our room was dated. Thought of changing rooms but after going around we noticed that we were well situated in the middle between blue and green and 5 min from pool and beach. The resort is huge in the 2 weeks we were there I don’t think we saw it all. The beach well towel game is a must for a good lounger and same for pool. Great entertainment, very clean, good food, ( really ), good a la carte ( Bella Italia and Don Pablo were great) Santa fee, well not really but it depends on your taste buds Overall this resort is good if I was to go back I would again go adults only as the other beach section gets very crowded. Keep in mind that the lot next door is under construction so noise and dust for that side of the resort. But can't blame Bahia for that. We had fun, great weather, beautiful beach do I recommend, yes I do. Go and enjoy.Thanks Bahia :)
We had our "family" vacation here the week of April 1 to 8. Four rooms. Only one which was on the pool side. Yes, there was construction going on during our stay for three of our rooms. None of us had a problem with it. It was clear that there was a noise bylaw in place. The workers did not start until 8am each morning. For those of us who generally are up at 6am every morning for work, this was like a "sleep in". Actually, we used the timing as our alarm clock. Not bad to wake up at 8am, shower etc. and then head for breakfast at 9am. We actually found the hallways to be noisier with the "adults" coming in in the wee hours, banging on doors trying to find their rooms! The buffets might be repetitive, but the choices were endless! Go, relax, and enjoy the beautiful beach, pools, and very hard working people who are there doing their best to serve you. Expect a very large resort! If you do not like to walk, just wait for a cart. There are always negatives no matter where you go, but we travel with open minds and appreciate how hard it must be as employees to try and please everyone! Hats off to the staff of the Ambar Green!
My wife and I visited the Grand Bahia Amber Green in April 2017. We have stayed previously at the Grand Bahia chain and have found them nothing short of exceptional. The Amber Green (Adults only) was great. From transportation throughout the resort, to food, drinks , things to do etc., everything was very good. What did lack a little was the service. I tend not to get too upset over small things so many of the shortcomings in the resort I simply overlooked. As mentioned mostly service did lack in a few instances. For example. My wife and I got to our room to check the weather on the TV. The remote control unit doesn't work. I changed the batteries and still nothing. Our room was across from the lobby, so I took the short walk to let the hotel know and ask them to fix it. After 4 days of asking 4 times, I gave up. It was never fixed. We also had to call 2 times to have the room made up when we arrived back from the pool. This was at 5pm in the afternoon. Not a big deal, but in reality it should not have been missed. We were tipping our maid very generously as well, hoping this would not happen!The Beach:We started at the beach for the first couple of days and found it very crowded. It took a while to figure out, but the Bahia chain has build 3 additional hotels behind the existing hotels without taking on any more waterfront. Hence the crowed beach. But is was beautiful!Our Pool at Amber Green was excellent along with the service.We got pried into a timeshare seminar from the hotel lobby one morning for the Bahia Privileges Club. We had never been to a seminar before, so we said what the hell. I for warned them that I was not interested in a timeshare or anything to do with fractional ownership. Well, its not. Your simply buying the privilege to stay at any Bahia resort with benefits. I didn't see the benefit for us, but for some it may be worthwhile.Overall, without considering what we paid for this trip, we would highly recommend the Bahia chain of hotels. Amber Green was great, and yes it had shortcomings, but nothing really that got us upset. Everything is fixable and what little things they were ,actually not worth the aggravation in pursuing perfection We paid $1600 Canadian dollars per person per week for our holiday and would gladly pay it again to stay their.
This was our second trip to this Resort. The first time, 2012 we stayed in the Bahia Principe Bavaro section. This time we stayed in the Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar Green section. Very nice place.The fact that we someone entered our room safe (twice) is unacceptable and scary. 240.00$ was stolen! We filed a official complaint and the directors came to investigate our room (analysing the safe and the door to the room with machines). Since we were leaving after a 2 weeks holiday, they told us the investigation would take from 24 to 48 hours. They also mentionned that they would analyse everything and would get back to us by e-mail right away. What we found a bit odd, was the fact that sometimes in the evening, upon our return to the room, the lights were left on and we had little chocolates next to our bed and this happended a few times. At first, when we mentionned it, we were told that this was not a service that was usually done but afterwards, they dismissed it completely. We haven't heard anything from them since our return. Only e-mails to complete surveys (which I did with a mention that a follow-up would be appreciated). We left on April 12th and still no news. I know it's hard to prove since it's cash, but with all of the years we've been traveling, this is the first time that this kind of thing happens to us. Word of advice: if you go, check your safe avery day and don't leave money.... For us, Bahia Principe left us with a bad experience. Especially the fact that the follow-up was not done!
