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.

Surprise 60th Birthday
Pros: Room: Very roomy -- had the first floor. Would recommend a higher floor just so you don't hear the people traffic coming through. However, I must say that there wasn't a lot of noise from people. Our fan broke immediately and maintenance was there within one minute! Fixed and working just fine for the rest of the trip. You can also request a scent for your room -- try lavender! Our room did have a bit of a musty smell, but it disappeared with 24 hours. YOU MUST ASK THEM TO STOCK THE BAR, OTHERWISE IT WILL NOT BE STOCKED. Beach: Perfect! Being in the Ambar Blue, we were a very short walk to the beach. Had a beach chair every day. Merchants are friendly and not pushy. Waiters/waitresses are very friendly and service was great! Snack bar/pool area: The snack bar was great to grab something quick before going to the pool (which is just steps away). The pool was lively -- something always going on. Pool always clean and just the right temperature! Plenty of room for everyone. Swim-up bar was wonderful too. Food: The Brazilian steak house was top notch! I would have dined here every night! Buffet was nice, but lacked variety. My eggs for breakfast were always cooked to perfection. Transportation: I like how they have the little trams to take you wherever you want to go! This is a big compound, so it's easy to get lost. Just hop on and tell them where you want to go, and they will deliver you! Cleanliness: This place is immaculate! They clean it from top to bottom every day. I saw them in the lobby cleaning the brass hardware, the glass, everything. They have perfected this -- 10 out of 10 here! Cons: The reason I rated this 4 and not 5 was for two reasons: Food - everything was nice, but lacked variety. I heard this about Punta Cana in general. I'm comparing this to Mexico, and I preferred the buffets in Mexico. Surprise party -- when I booked this trip through Cheap Caribbean, I told them this was for my husband's 60th birthday on Saturday (we checked in on Thursday) Again, upon arrival, I mentioned to the girl at check-in that it was my husband's 60th birthday on Saturday. Expected something---balloons, bottle of champagne, sign on door, and there was nothing. In addition, my two adult sons traveled with us and shared a room to save on costs. Their door said "happy anniversary!" Clearly this was a mess-up! These are the only items I can fault them on. Internet - even though I did not want to use the internet, I found you could only connect in the lobby or certain areas. This was not a problem for me because I wanted to spend time without electronics! Overall, very nice, big, extremely clean and fun atmosphere! I MAY return!More
My husband just returned from our week vacation. We had a wonderful time!! We had many meals in the adult buffet. The food and service were wonderful! We also had lunches at the beachside buffet. The food choices were excellent. I especially enjoyed salads and fresh fruit. Food served at the buffets were wonderfully made. We had reservations at three restaurants which we enjoyed. We occasionally had wait staff which spoke very little English but most of the times they tried English. Our junior suite was perfect. Air conditioning worked well, daily maid service, hot water and restocked refrigerator daily. The wifi worked adequately. This was our first time at this resort and enjoyed all activities. We spent the days at the beach which was so, so nice. We will return!More

Luxurious tropical getaway
The property grounds, rooms and facilities are exceptionally kept. The staff is very customer services oriented, with the exception of the buffet restaurants. The restaurants are are divided between the buffet, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner... the snack bars open for lunch around the seaside pools and the specific restaurants open dinner by reservation only. The buffet and snack bar staff could have been more attentive. Often we had to ask several times for water, etc... until we established a relationship with the supervisor or other primary server. I did notice others tipping the server staff, which would obviously establish greater attention. I got greater attention when I'd attempt to help myself to coffee, water or wine. The beach and seaside pool was more comfortable than the pools further inland, due to the ocean breeze.More
Bahia Principe Ambar Blue-Debs review
To start with my review I did enjoy the Ambar Blue, however I thought the bedrooms were tired and needed a lot of updating. My spa bath in the room did not ever fill up and the door off the loo was missing. The bathrooms need a complete make over. The food was excellent in the main restaurant and the Italian was great, some of the other restaurants were not as good. The drinks and the bars were excellent, and all the staff were excellent. The entertainment at this hotel was lacking, and there was no decent activities during the day. The pool area and beach were lovely. The music at the pool bar was repetitive and loud, I did not enjoy the animation staff's entertainment at the pool. The sunbeds on the beach were quiet however it was hard to get a drink as one small bar did the whole area. You are able to visit the other hotels in the resort, however the one at the bottom was full of smoke from people smoking inside the building, it was disgusting, so didn't stay. This is the one with kids. The casino, down the Village, which is the bottom end of the resort was good fun. And I did two of the trips, which I thought were overpriced but enjoyable. (the trip to Santo Domingo and the coffee plantation) Staying at the Ambar was lovely and I enjoyed it, however its not what I'd call luxury.More
