Not only does this place – voted one of TripAdvisor's top All Inclusive resorts – line up luxury suites, gourmet restaurants and a gigantic pool, it’s got a sandy beach as its front garden.
If there’s one word that fits this adults-only hotel, it’s luxury. It’s surrounded by lush gardens and is right on a white-sand beach, plus the bedrooms are all suites, with canopy beds and hydro-massage tubs.
There’s a huge pool, loads of sports and four à la carte restaurants here. To top it all off, it’s a 3-for-1 deal – you get full run of the facilities at the Grand Bahia Principe Bavaro and the Punta Cana, next door.

Just returned from 7 days at the Ambar. This is our second time and it just keeps getting better. Food and drinks are fantastic, grounds and rooms are immaculate and the staff are always friendly and helpful. Planning on returning next year.More

A very enjoyable holiday !
After a poor experience at Punta Cana Airport and a pretty average Check In process we ended up having as great 1st ever holiday in D.R. we stayed in Villa 63 in Ambar 1 which was very convenient for the beach and yet was only a couple of mins walk from Ambar 2's very impressive new pools. We rarely used the Main buffet but rather ate brekfast near Ambar 1 main pool, lunch at Ambar 2's Buffet and at A La Carte Restaurants in the evenings. We enjoyed this holiday as much as Couples & Sandals, maybe more ? Terrific " value for money ", super staff.We don't normally but we might well repeat !More

We stayed at the Amber 1 from March 7 to March 14, 2015. This hotel was beautiful but very busy and way too big. Personally we like smaller, quieter resorts but with that said this was a very nice hotel. As other reviews have said the amber is split into amber 1 and amber 2. Amber 1 being older and closest to the beach, Amber 2 being further away but newer buildings. And yes you have to play the towel game in order to get a good cabana at the pool. There are signs on the cabanas telling guests that you are not allowed to hold them but one morning I woke up at 5.30 and decided to go and get a lounger in the shade and even at that time in the morning people had already been down to hold their spot. You know the old saying, "if you can't beat them, join them" :) The service and staff were very good and we really felt we didn't have too much to complain about. We were dissappointed to see that we could not get free wi fi in our room, especially in this day and age, we had to go to the lobby if we wanted to connect and the wi fi was very slow. In my opinion, a luxury resort offers this as part of an all inclusive package. As previously indicated by other travellers, you can get a stomach bug here, my husband and I both caught a stomach bug on the second to last day we were there. We had eaten at the italian restaurant and later that evening we were both pretty sick. Neither of us drank any coco locos or pina coladas and as my husband doesn't even drink alcohol he only consumed water that night, it had to be the food. A week later we are both still trying to recover from this bug. I hope this review helps you make your decision, for us it was a nice trip, a nice hotel but we wouldn't be in any hurry to go back anytime soon.More

My husband and I stayed at the Bahia Principe Ambar II in March to celebrate our 50th bdays. It was fantastic!! We have traveled extensively and agree that this is one of the best resorts we have ever stayed at! It was beautiful, spotlessly clean and beautifully landscaped. The beach and pool areas were great. The staff was so friendly and polite. We are not buffet fans, but have to admit that it was good for breakfast (delicious fresh papaya, mango, pineapple, omlettes made to order) and lunch ( salads, burgers, pasta ala vongole made to order). We did not have a good meal at Portofino, had a great meal at Rodizio Brazilian steak house and Maiko Japanese steak house. I recommend making reservations before you arrive. The spa was great too. We had a couples massage...highly recommend. We also enjoyed drinks and entertainment at the outdoor lounge at night. Fabiola is a great waitress...very friendly and fun. We traveled w/o our kids and liked stsying in the adults only resort. However, we did take the trolley over to Bavaro to check out the shops and have dinner one night. Ambar II is quiet and relaxing, which is what we wanted. If you want more of a party atmosphere, go to Bavaro, Turquesa or Ambar I. We liked the lounge at Ambar I. We will absolutely return someday and highly recommend this resort to anyone traveling to Punta Cana.More
