My new husband and I had the time of our lives at Club Ambiance on our recent honeymoon. It's much smaller and more cozy than the bigger resorts -- only about 90 rooms. Terrific if you want to cozy up to the one you love, maybe not so great if you're interested in a party with lots of singles. It's an older hotel...and a lot more organic than most of the big glitzy all-inclusives. The signs are all hand-painted, and it looks kind of sketchy from outside. Don't be fooled. The rooms were obviously built several decades ago, but they were immaculately clean. The maid even scrubbed the floors and folded the things she found that we'd misplaced under the bed daily. The service was TO DIE FOR. Every moment someone was asking us if we needed anything, the food was good, the resident band was fun, and the atmosphere laid back and comfortable. Make sure you're there for Thursday night Jamaica night! CA doesn't have the best beach, but there is a great public one just down the street. The benefit of the beach at CA is that it's secluded, so you can relax without oglers and merchants harrassing you. We absolutely loved it. It was everything we wanted. If you want a pristine glitzy marble halls kind of place, CA is not for you, though.

Friendly staff - front desk, bell service, security and restaurant staff. And also, the housekeeping. Clean and attractive, comfortable accommodations. Highly recommended for a "keep-to-a-budget" vacation - b/4 going to a 4+ star resort to end the trip.

This was our third trip to this resort and we still love it. Only two complaints for the whole ten days we spent there. First of which, were the hot tubs, all three weren't usable. One stunk, one was so hot that you couldn't put your feet in, and the last one was freezing cold. My last complaint pertains to the staff, if you want to play sand volleyball, you have to fight the staff for the court. They were more interested in beating the "Americans" than letting the Americans play. Other than that, the food and drinks are great. The entertainment is wonderful and the rooms are comfy and clean.

If you have young children and your requirements are reasonably limited this could be a good choice. Having a nanny for the whole week was amazing. The resort itself is about 3 star. Everything is okay but don't expect anything fancy. Small pool and limited but adequate facilities. Enclosed beach was great for our 4 1/2 year old son. He could have spent the whole week splashing around looking for crabs. Tipping is messy. Never really knew whether it was expected or not. In the end found myself dropping notes everywhere out of embarrassment. Some of the staff are incredibly responsive - others were completely indifferent. I suspect management is not as good as it should be.

This is my third time at this resort. We brought 2 other couples who had never been there and wanted to check it out. Of course we were told we couldn't have a cottage, and they put us in the Green building right outside of the lobby. We affectionately called it the chicken coop, but I don't think that chickens would stay there. We complained (alot) to Diane who is in charge of customer service, and by the second night we all had cottages. I wouldn't have let this spoil my vacation, but I did want the people with us to have what they paid for. The grounds are beautiful, the people are fantastic, and a good time was had by all!! Make sure that you tip, even though it's an all inclusive, I often wonder how much of the tips the people actually get. The service is better too!! They work very hard to make us happy, and they do an excellent job!!!

This resort was amazing. We had a lot of fun. No complaints. Beach was nice...the pools were nicer. The bartenders are all great, sometimes there are lines, but why complain. Restaurants were all amazing. Surprisingly the buffet was extremely good as well. Was nice they mixed it up too some nights to "Mexican" night and what not. Gold member was worth every penny. We had an amazing room/view. Also they book the dinners for you ahead of time so no worries with that aspect. Free internmet was nice to check my email a few times as well. For the people that complain about this resort, shame on you. A vacation is as good as you make it. No this is not like 5 star hotels in North America. Staff is a little slow sometimes...who cares, Its Jamaica. Live it up. If you don't want to walk 5 mins from one place to the other go to a smaller resort. This place is huge, which is great if you want to have a fun time and meet people. The night life shows are weak, but what do you expect. The disco can be good and the sports bar has any game you want to see. The burger joint is open from 11pm to 7am if you get hungry. It's great...say hi to Lloyd for me. Go to this resort, you won't be sorry. The rest from the water look like crap except sandals.
