Relaxing Honeymoon :-)

This was my first all inclusive vacation with my wife and we had a wonderful time. The amenities were great, Beach, pool and new room at Ambar (Don Pablo collection) was good, food was excellent, luxurious service with outstanding staff. Ambar is the way to go for adults, beverages were top shelf and all inclusive.We enjoyed all of our excursions.The resort itself was beautiful and well maintained. Getting around was extremely easy. Golf carts and staff were always available and ready to get you where you needed to go I really recommend the Luxury BP Ambar hotel!..Loved it..:-)..we will coming back next year. xoxox

Great Vacation: Avoid VIP Travel for Short Stays

Hotel was great! Book reservations for a la carte well in advance. Don Pablo and Bella Italia were very good. Also, be sure to tip the maids daily (not much, $2-5 or they might forget to restock your mini-bar). Bars at the beach serve weaker drinks and less potent liqour than those in the main lobby. Everyone's extremely friendly for the most part, and a few dollars in tips gona long way to get faster service. Beach dance party was lots of fun!

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Skip the VIP travel services transportation package. I was very irritated as I was only at the resort for three nights, and they made me and my girlfriend sit for a half hour presentation the morning of my second day. I only went because I didn't want to jeopardize my return taxi, but they made me feel like I was being held hostage for "5 Dominican minutes". Glad he had a funny joke for wasting my time. If you do not plan on booking an excursion through them I would recommend asserting yourself in the beginning (just give them your voucher and say "what time do I need to be in the lobby"). They also make you leave 3 hours before your flight to reduce liability on their end, and we wasted time waiting for them to fill the bus. Next time I'll pay the extra $50 and get a cab both ways (along with your liberty), especially if you want to make every day count.

Beautiful Landscape with deluxe buffet dinners

Very nice hotel with friendly staff. The buffet dinners were excellent with free wine & cocktails daily. The only complaints we have are the following: No hot tubs in the main pool area. No beach towels given at the pool. Must bring towels from room only. No hotel operated bus to/from airport. The ground is very well maintained with beautiful flowers. The staff is well trained with with smiling faces.

Very nice despite a few "bugs"

Beautiful property/grounds/rooms. Staff very friendly, willing to please. Wonderful sand beach. My kids kept referring to the place as "paradise". Nice number of varied activities day and night. As for the negatives, despite the abundance of choices at the buffets, much of the food was "eh" although there was always enough to satisfy. Several guests including myself had to go back a couple of times to get a working "room key" because the magnetic stripe on the card stopped working. Getting wifi in the lobby was often much easier said than done. Shouldn't have to call four days out of 5 to get a plumber to fix the toilet. Overall, it was a very nice place and excellent value for the money.

Nice Trip

Large complex as their are four resorts. Pool and beach area is very clean with a lot of room to layout and enjoy the sun. The buffet in the main area was fantastic for each meal. We recommend going to the Brazilian steakhouse for the ala-carte dinner. Only blemish is the service was average. We felt as though we were a burden to request drinks or food on a few occasions.

Heaven on earh

I have not experienced such luxurious service before. The staff was outstanding, I feel their policy is "if it's legal, we will make it happen".

Not a good trip

My wife and I have visited Punta Cana over 10 times staying at various resorts. This trip was the worse one by far. We upgraded to the Ambar section in hopes of experiencing the upgraded treatment we usually get from other resorts. When we arrived there was a line at the check in desk and we had to wait. We upgrade to avoid this. We were advised to reserve dinner at the restaurants via the customer service section which entailed another long wait in line. We decided to eat at the main buffet the first night. We were in the lobby bar (very small) for a few before dinner drinks. I noticed a crowd gathering at the buffet entrance prior to the time it opened. Once the doors were open the crowd rushed in which seemed strange. Once inside the buffet I learned why. The buffet is very small and the serving line area the smallest of any I have seen in Punta Cana. It was almost a fight to get to the food. To bypass this scene at our next meal we decided to go an hour into the service. We were greeted with less people but no food. Almost all the servicing trays were empty and I waited over 15 minutes for them to be re filled which did not happen. I then realized why everyone rushed the door and fought for food the time the doors open. The staff seemed to be trying to rush you to finish your meal and leave as soon as possible. Other than the staff at the buffet the other employees tried to make our stay a pleasant one. The web site and a publication furnished us upon our arrival indicated there was a casino located at the Ambar. This information turned out to be false. There was a Casino located about a mile away that served all of the motels located in the compound (around 4 or 5 resorts) and was not large enough to accomplish this task. To sum things up I did not feel special at this resort despite paying for an upgrade. That was the bad, now for some good. The Brazilian restaurant experience was fun and I suggest you eat there at least once. We were there for my birthday and the staff prepared me a cake which was a nice treat. The housekeeper assigned to our room was great and did her best for us. The wait staff on the beach were very good although overworked.

Save your money and don't book the Ambar because you will still be treated like cattle despite the upgrade.
