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.

Great staff and pools, Room & Drinks need help
Hi Everyone! We stayed at the Ambar Blue adults only area of the hotel. It was not what we expected... as a young married couple (30 and 33) we thought the adult hotel would be up beat. It was actually for older adults. All activities were over at 11 pm. The night shows at the ambar blue were directed for older couples. We would have to transport to the other hotels for a good time. We went during spring break so the "Club" was full of college students. Heads up it is very expensive in their shopping section and taxis are expensive to transport you anywhere. As for the drinks and food: we ate at the main buffet most of the time, we did the Brazilian and that was okay.. we had to wait long periods of time for the next meat to come around maybe since our reservation was til 9:15 pm and we booked it the day we arrived but mostly all restaurants were booked. We also ate at the bar b que resturante not impressed but did love that it was by the beach. They also did make good streak for my husband but he had to wait like 20 min. for it to be done. The italian resturant we got there and walked out... do not like cold meats. Ended up at the buffet with mexican food which was great. Staff is super nice and always willing to help. Beach was nice and clean especially once we walked down the beach and saw the other hotels had theirs dirty. Our room when we first got there smelled really bad!!!! but they brought us a room sent and made it better. Drinks are SWEET not strong.

Beautiful hotel, close to the beach, nice staff.
Luxury Bahía Principe is a beautiful hotel. Staff are super charming and nice at the main buffet by the lobby (Special thanks to Manuel Muiños who was AMAZING at customer service, Ruth and also Fausto from front desk) We had booked three rooms that expedia noted as KING BED, when we arrived the 3 rooms had two beds each when I had also e-mailed them about having just one bed in the room as booked because we were three couples.They said they couldn't "guarantee" that, which makes no sense to me because I have worked on the hotel business and I know how the booking managament for the room works and you can definitely know what type of room you will offer the guest in advance. We spoke to front desk and they fix this for us but we had to wait until 6pm for it. They do treat guests differently depending on where they are from (being from the US we get welcome gifts and drinks, if you are from South America they don't give you a welcome gift at the room for example which I find weird and wrong to make that difference...but anyw). I would strongly recommend you stay away from their sales talk for Bahia Principe Privilege Club.They will try to lure you in saying it just takes 1hr and promise you a nice Dominican gift but it's not worth it. Once you realize you are not interested in what they have to offer they turn into these rude beings. They had this obnoxious sales manager who seriously needs to work on his soft skills, if it weren't for him we would have probably joined.

Roaches and dirt
We stayed here in August, and am just writing a review now because someone asked me if I would recommend Bahia Principe in Punta Cana. I said NO WAY. Unless you like cockroaches crawling up the jet tub drain and running around your room, or a smushed mosquito on your shower door, and getting sick by the end of your trip from under cooked meat, then by all means. We found 3 cockroaches in our room within the first couple of days. We kept squishing them and leaving them for our cleaning ladies to deal with so they would see we had a cockroach problem.. clearly they didn't care. We were on first floor, my used sandals with plenty of wear and tear got stolen off my inclosed, patio with bushes around it. And you cannot swim in the pool after 6 o'clock.. for cleaning purposes. 6?!? It's still light out!!! I understand after 10 or so. Also our mini fridge was rarely ever stocked with what it said it's supposed to be stocked with. And we finally stopped getting cockroaches when another couple said they had the same problem and told us to put the stopper in the drain of the tub because that's where they were coming from. All and all this place was pretty dirty, I know bugs happen but this is unacceptable. Also myself and my girlfriend spent the last 3 days in bed, ordering toast from room service and trying to keep it down because we got E Coli poisoning from under cooked meat at their Italian restaurant that we were excited to go to. Never again Bahia Principe
