The name certainly fits at this cozy, casual beachfront hotel on Runaway Bay. With its intimate feel and romantic ambiance, the Club Ambiance is an idyllic getaway for couples and honeymooners. For a truly romantic vacation, upgrade to the Deluxe Honeymoon Rooms with their four-poster king beds and second-floor location, overlooking the Caribbean. There's also an on-site wedding chapel, a PADI five-star dive centre, guided bicycle tours and the Seaside Terrace, where you can dine under the stars.

Location: Beachfront, 30 minutes to Ocho Rios, 20 minutes to St. Ann's Bay and 75 minutes from the airport.

What a Disappointment

Despite the negative reviews, I encouraged my colleague to choose this Resort because of my previous satisfactory stay there . Boy was I in for a Rude awakening.1st of all there was just a handful of guests there and so the resort feeling was lacking. There was no variety with the meals, chicken and pork all the way. Breakfast was usually ok though. Suffice it to say I had no issues with the Bar, Alcohol was always available during our stay. Oshane, the bar tender ensured that we got our drinks to our specification, he is an asset to your establishment as he goes out of his way to ensure that my colleague and I were at least enjoying the drinks.We ran into several maintenance problems: 1)water pressure in the bathroom low, hot water it working.2)shower curtain rod falling down3) AC not functioning well4) blow dryer cord cutI must admit though that there were quick responses to sorting these problems out.On a more positive note: the staff went above and beyond ,using themselves to make sure that the guests are happy.It was humbling to see them operating on pure fumes to ensure that we didn't have any complaints. What a fantastic staff. We were going to change resorts, but decided to stay for the full duration..I will not be going back to ambience even if I'm paid to go there. Management needs to make some changes .

Huge Disappointment

This is not a 3 Star hotel!! We were dropped off at entrance which was on the road BC it's so small that a bus can't drive in there. This place is right beside a very busy highway and the semi truck use their engine brakes throughout the night while passing by. Cement on the entrance is all broken up and we had to push our suitcases on it to get to the front desk. You have to use stairs to get to your room. Everything looks super old and out dated. Towels in the room were stained and they had the thinnest old small towels at the beach. Oh right, which beach?? Tiny little man made beaches. Water In their man made lagoons was up to you knee and very rocky. No service at the beach for drink refills. Only 27 people there and by the time we had left after a week then was maybe 5 people left there. Staff does their very best with the limited resources they have. There is only 1 restaurant which is only buffet for each meal. They have burger & fries in the afternoon. The food was simple and good. No bottled water anywhere. There was very little Entertainment every night. We would say this place was way over priced!

I gave the hotel 1 because it is required field,it really should be 0stars. We had chicken for lunch and dinner for 7 days straight,only one bar was open and was running out of drinks every night. The other two should be torn down. There was a smell every night and after asking we were told it was garbage they were burning. The smell was all over the hotel. After arriving the first day we tried to get moved to another hotel and the sunwing rep.was no help. Asking us to pay another 790$ Usd or more . We had already paid enough for this trip. We spend the next 6 days at the so called beach. The beach was a big litter box truly for the 17 guests that were there in the whole hotel. This hotel should be closed down. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO GO . WE ARE NOT FUSSY HOWEVER THIS HOTEL WAS A DISGRACE.
