Neighboring its sister resort Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda along the Arena Gorda section of Punta Cana's Bávaro Beach, Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar appeals to couples. The all-inclusive, adults-only property boasts 528 modern suites outfitted with walk-in showers, wall-mounted flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access, stocked minibars, butler service (upon request) and bathrobes and slippers. Previous guests praised the resort's beautiful accommodations, although some offered less favorable feedback about the property's eateries, citing limited options and lackluster service. However, diners can choose from six restaurants, including three international buffets and three a la carte venues that serve everything from Italian cuisine to steakhouse classics. Additional dining establishments can be found at the resort's nearby sister properties. Back on-site, travelers will find a beach, a lake-style pool, a spa and more. Plus, the all-inclusive rates cover various fitness classes, pool games, all meals and drinks, nightly entertainment and an hour per day of nonmotorized water sports equipment rentals.

Critic Reviews


This upper-middle-range, adults-only resort is one of the original sections of an ever-growing resort complex that feels sort of like Dominican Republic’s version of Las Vegas. Make sure your driver knows the exact hotel name – there are five hotels total – otherwise you may end up confused at the wrong lobby.
