Punta Cana All Inclusive - Gran Bahia Principe Ambar

Updated on October 6, 2014

When my husband and I are looking for a getaway just for us, we really like to stay at an all inclusive resort. This time we visited the The Dominican Republic. It is so beautiful in The Dominican Republic! This was my best vacation yet. I have stayed at other all inclusive resorts but this one takes the cake!

The beach took my breath away. The rooms were immaculate, the grounds are stunning and she staff was wonderful.

I really want to go back. I highly recommend this to everyone deciding on an all inclusive hotel. Photos are below.

We Arrive At Punta Cana International Airport

After we landed we walked off the plane right onto the tarmac. Punta Cana International Airport is the coolest airport I have ever seen! It has open-air terminals and the roofs are covered in palm fronds. The landscape is beautiful! Below are some of the pictures of the airport.

First impressions are very important. The lobby was stunning! I had have to find more photos to share. Most of the pictures I took of the lobby were dark or had glare.

After check in we went to our room. Again beautiful. The first thing that caught my eye was the mahogany canopy bed. All of the d├ęcor was so happy. From the vibrant colorful artwork to the little towel sculptures.

Everything in the hotel, inside and out, has special little touches. The image on the right is an ashtray. All of the ashtrays have the logo imprinted in the sand.

Throughout the hallways there are artful displays of towel origami sprinkled with fresh flower petals. Below are some pictures. The photo with me in it was taken in our room.

After we checked into our room we took off to check out the resort. The landscape is immaculate. Everything is absolutely perfect. This is an absolute tropical paradise! You will also find coconut and banana trees everywhere. Photo below.

All you can drink!

Yep! All you can drink! This can be very dangerous so you have to pace yourself.

In addition to the open bar, there are special drink days. I honestly can't remember if it is every night or every other night. I am surprised I can even remember the trip :) I do remember the first night of our stay it was Coco Loco night and the last night was Champagne & Mimosa night. They set up a nice display and serve you until you can't make it over to order another. Pictures below.

There are lots of options for food but this was my favorite. Most likely you are looking at this dish and trying to figure out what the heck it is.

It is the Banana Flambe It is soooo good! I can't even explain it in words.

I could go on forever. The last few pictures are of other things we experienced on our visit.

We had such a good time. Not sure what our next stop will be but looking forward to getting away again.

I have more hubs on other vacation spots. You can check them out by visiting my profile.

      Looks like a nice resort. My niece went to the Dominican, but I haven't gone yet.

      Looks wonderful and some great pics. Have never been to the Dominican Republic - somewhere else to add to my list.
