Property beautiful, clean. Pro's- great options for food, steakhouse had awesome steak, Con- could only get reservations at 2 of the restaurants (tried to book 4 days in advance). Pro-mini bar stocked daily, con-very few items we prefer (ie tiny Vodka given daily, extras cost more, this was my primary drink, had to go off the resort to buy). Pro-nice options for shopping, con- could only get pesos out of ATM, no exchange ability on site, and many many of the shops either couldn't make change or didn't know how to. Need to either give US currency, require shops to have and make change, or provide currency exchange. Complaint - unable to get ice easily for making our own beach drinks. It either took 45 minutes to get ice once requested and most of the time still had to end up going to search someone down for help in getting ice. I would go again to the property but not likely to go back to Dominican republic just because of frustrations with the language barriers, being bounced around for answers, and we like to snorkel onsite on our own time and found other caribbean islands had better snorkeling. Is just fine for laying out at the beach, going to the pool and just lounging around (overall relaxing) but will consider other locations first. Also, during transport from the airport to the hotel, the driver, with just my spouse and myself in the van, pulled over on the side of the road (busy road) and disappeared in to the woods 10-15 minutes, unsafe and definitely not sanitary

Overall this is a very nice hotel, very clean, and a lot of rooms have been renovated to meet what you would expect from a luxury resort. A few things were a letdown, starting with the fact that they limited you to only 2 beers in your room for restocking per day—2!! That to me is beyond ridiculous for a luxury all inclusive resort. I don’t know if that has something to do with the recent events with the area, but even so, it’s a very stupid policy, especially when you have a swim up room and really want to chill with some drinks. We had to buy our own tequila to enjoy which sours the experience of all inclusive—what’s the point? Secondly, the food, it wasn’t that great. It’s probably my American stomach, however my other 2 friends were all as sick as me during the trip( Portuguese & Guatemalan), and everyday we spent too much time comparing toilet trips. I don’t know what they use for cooking oil or maybe the water but it doesn’t sit well and it ruins your trip when every day you have to think about what am I going to eat? And finally there’s just too much back and forth processes with something as simple as booking a dinner reservation, which we didn’t do in advance so we ate at 2 a la cartes and that’s it out of 5 days, then there’s having to go to another hotels lobby for airport transportation, it’s all just totally unnecessary and makes you feel like you’re wasting so much time scheduling and booking when you just want pool and beach time.

Pros and Cons - Nothing but Honesty
Pros: Friendly, pleasant staff. Beautiful Pool - clean. Plenty of lounge chairs on beach and around pool while we were there. Huge resort - several connected areas - shuttles to take you around. Look at Village Market for shopping and souvenirs. Bathroom was stunning & huge - beds were super comfortable. Cons: Room is not going to get very cold, ice bucket in room but you have to call to get ice delivered to your room every single day and wait around. While we were there the beach was full of seaweed - workers were raking up piles and piles of it all day long. Trucks were driving it away. Not happy about the beach. Buffet has an enormous amount of food - nothing is going to be steaming hot and do not expect Wolfgang Puck dishes but there is something for everyone. They have theme nights - Mexican, Italian, French, American, Dominican, Asian & Spanish. Their display of items is stunning. They do have several specialty restaurants - some at no extra charge.

Exceptional 10.0
5 stays at Ambar Blue and 5 excellent ratings
We've stayed at the Ambar Blue a total of 9 weeks over 5 different stays so it's obvious we love this place. We emailed our room request and dinner reservations in two weeks before our arrival. At check in we did have to switch our room because we wanted to be facing the pool. We were quickly switched and had a great room right were we wanted to be. All of our dinner reservations was exactly as requested. Service: We've don't have any issues with the level of service provided. There were times at breakfast and lunch that we did fill my own water glass. Dinner service, maid service, the pool wait staff and bartenders were exceptional. The staff is amazing and one of the reasons we continually return. Food: The food quality has been exceptional and the last two years has actually even improved. We like that we can eat at the ala carte restaurants as much as we want even though the buffet is really good. Lunches are phenominal at the poolside restaurant. Pool: The pool area is awesome. On our previous reviews we noted that some pool tiles needed work. Repairs have since been made, and the loungers were new from last year. Beach: You simply can't beat it! They do a great job cleaning the beach and there are plenty of chairs and shade. Room: Yes they are slightly dated, but in all our stays everything is clean and in good working order. We still recommend and will again stay in the Ambar Blue section just because the location far out weighs the condition of the rooms.

Everything was great, all inclusive truly means all inclusive. The drinks at the beach experience was remarkable, the buffets are huge and a wide variety to choose from. The staff are very friendly, the manager is really nice. I did waste my time for a 60 min presentation trying to sell me a travel plan. Oh and if you want to add someone to your room, it's a really complicated procedure with security and reception. Takes hours and it's stressful waiting for an answer Even though I'm paying top dollar (140$/night to add someone) but all worked out nicely at the end. Overall experience 8. 5/10
