Positives but more negatives
We have just returned from our 2 week honeymoon in beautiful Mauritius and stayed at the Ambre. I'll start with the positives.. Ambre is a lovely hotel and the entrance into the hotel with the pool is quite breathtaking. Check in was very speedy and was a huge relief after a long day travelling to have our room ready, and our luggage delivered to our room. The food in all 3 restaurants is fabulous and I couldn't fault it! The long stretch of beach is gorgeous and the all inclusive watersports with the guys on the beach were fab! We did snorkelling, peddleo's and a double transparent kayak. We also booked a boat trip with macloud and I have to say it was our favourite day of the holiday, you'll find him walking up and down the beach. The spa is very nice I had 2 massages whilst staying and they were great and the setting was beautiful, although a little expensive! We were lucky enough to have Ram cleaning our room and I have to say he is the staff member who stands out the most for us. He was so very kind and helpful, always smiling and nothing is too much trouble. Going back to the room, we upgraded to a deluxe sea view room and I'm so glad we did. The view was well worth it and the bed was huge and comfortable. Unfortunately I'll move onto the negatives- Our room although very spacious was, like other people have said, very tired and not I'd expect from a 4* We had to call about our mini bar fridge when we arrived as it was broken and clearly very old and didn't smell too good. They did however come and change it straight away. We had to call for water to be put into our mini bar on about 3/4 days as it hadn't been done and with the lack of waiters on the beach and pool for drinks we did end up thirsty quite a lot. Our air conditioner worked all the time but the last few days started to leak, we called again and they came to fix it but on the early morning of our flight home I'd discovered it had leaked again all over our boarding passes and other things in my suitcase! The hotel seemed to get very busy during our 2nd week, I presume this was because it's officially their summer. We found the busier it got the worse the service got. Very slow in The beach restaurant a couple of times but a beautiful setting. In Indigo buffet we even had lunch one day without being offered drinks the whole time! It's good the hotel is busy but they should hire more staff if they can't get to everyone. Another negative is the lovely dogs around the beach and hotel, I LOVE dogs and found it so heartbreaking to see them walking around. They're such a friendly bunch and don't bother you unless you fuss them. We were told in our welcome meeting not to feed them as they feed them from the hotel themselves. This clearly isn't the case as they're so thin! I got some food from breakfast every day and fed them and gave them water as I couldn't bare it and can't understand why people wouldn't do the same. Lastly, Ambre is a resort full of people celebrating honeymoons, anniversaries, birthdays and it seems if you book with the hotel you get treated a bit better than if you go through Thompson. We made some lovely friends from the Netherlands and they were invited to a special honeymoon meal on the beach. When I asked at reception they said we couldn't have one as we booked through Thompson and if we wanted it we'd have to pay. However people celebrating anniversaries receive a card and cake in their room and a special meal invite! We did have a lovely time and will look back with fond memories, I would book again for a holiday maybe but for a honeymoon unfortunately I just didn't feel it was special enough.More
7 nights of bliss
We stayed for 7 nights in the resort and had a great time. It is definitely great value for money and you will not be disappointed, so ignore the terrible reviews and book ASAP. The hotel is adults only and we met people literally from all over the world. The hotel is located on the beach which is well kept and the water is crystal clear. There are plenty of sun loungers and the drinks are served directly to you. There are a few dogs at the resort but they will not approach you unless you engage with them. We arrived very early in the morning and there was no waiting around, we were able to check-in to our room straight away. The room overlooked the beach and was very spacious, the mini bar was included in the price and topped up daily. The room attendant (Ram), was amazing and a really warm friendly person, like nearly all the staff on the resort. If you like your premier league football, nearly all the games are available in your room or in the H&H lounge. The only negatives about the rooms, are that they could do with some modernisation and some of the finishing wasn't the greatest. There are 3 restaurants, all of which provided great service and food. Most tastes are catered for. My wife is a vegetarian and one evening they even prepared a special dish for her and adapted the lunch menu to cater for her at the beachfront restaurant. There was even tea/coffee served around 3pm everyday in the H&H lounge, which included cakes and small sandwiches. A separate vegetarian area, like the Gluten free area would have just made it even better. The bar is located centrally and the staff were all great, but especially Diya. Every evening there was decent entertainment till late. If you are an active person, there are many free activities included. Pedalos, kayaks, paddle boarding, beach volleyball etc... All the guys at the water sport area were very friendly and helpful. A special mention to Pascal, who kept everyone entertained for hours at the beach volleyball court. There is also an on site fitness room which is reasonably well equipped and clean. We would definitely recommend visiting Ile aux Cerfs on a Catamaran, as the island is simply stunning.More
A little piece of heaven on earth
Just returned from a fantastic, tranquil week at Ambre Resort and looking already for return visit next year. Whole place is geared up for relaxing with huge seating everywhere that are fit for one purpose only and that is to lounge, sprawl out and just relax. Staff are courteous, welcoming, hard-working and very friendly. Although there are 3 restaurants we only ate in the main one called Indigo and there was always a large selection of food including a salad bar. Would have been nice to see tomato and maybe cucumber on salad bar but with a large variety of other side dishes on offer I didn't miss it too much from the salad. Beautiful gardens that like the resort itself are kept spotlessly clean and tidy with a fantastic array of plant life. Was in room 205 overlooking the beach that was kept spotlessly clean by Mohun and even though it was close to bar and 2 of the restaurants it was very peaceful. Several of the water sport activities are part of the inclusive package such as kayaking, short journey out by boat to do snorkelling, fun boats (or pedalo to us Brits), glass bottom boat etc but you have to book these by 9am in the morning as there is a demand for them. Only thing I would suggest for improvement is locked Tip boxes in all restaurants, at the bar and Reception as there are a lot of staff behind the scenes that make this resort the little slice of heaven that it is who do not get tipped or the recognition they deserve. All in all a fantastic holiday that has made my husband have to throw away his "Founder of the grumpy old men's club" t-shirt away as he couldn't find anything to moan about.More
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the hotel. We were on an all-inclusive visit and every single thing was great. We asked for a late check-out and this was granted to us without any questions whatsoever. The resort is a very relaxing place as well. Fantastic value for money :)More
Honey on the moon
We stayed at ambre resort for 6 nights for our honeymoon and it was absolutely heavenly. From check-in itself, by a lovely member of staff named kirti,with welcome drinks and a champagne and fruit platter in our room,everything was seamless. Our room was spacious and opened to the gorgeous view of a pristine White sand beach. The walk along the beachside to the beach bar and swimming pool was a bit long but scenic nevertheless. We had a complimentary candle light dinner arranged for us with a special menu. Being an All inclusive resort food and drinks were wholesome for us with a wide variety to choose from. Services at the bar and restaurants were excellent. We always got what we ordered and the staff there was good enough to even customise a few things according to our taste. The buffet spread had many Indian vegetarian options with live counters for naan as well as parathas by an Indian chef. For our day trips they even packed us a picnic lunch in the morning. My only grudge was that,for the dinner at their beach restaurant, you had to prebook early in the morning standing in a queue which we could do only once. They had nice entertainment options lined up every evening from traditional dances to live music. There was also a discotheque inside that was open till late but had very few people as most of the guests preferred enjoying at the beach bar. Swimming pool was large and never overcrowded. Free watersports and games had many options though we couldn't use them much for initial 2 days due to bad weather. We did wind surfing, kayaking, glassbottom boat ride, paddle boat riding etc. They all have fixed timings though so do keep that in mind. We missed on sailing due to rough weather. We found that almost all the Motorsports were cheaper at the ile aux cerf beach. All in all we had a great honeymoon and ambre resort did make it special. We Would love to go back soon. More
