Stayed at the ambar from the 6th to the 17th . This is a lovely resort with well cared for gardens and litter free. The staff are friendly and happy to help with your needs and carry your luggage for a dollar or two. The buffet restaurant has a very good choice of foods,but there is a definate issue with food warmth. Pizzas and chips - can be hot ,but most of the time "no" just warm. This is when you will have to ask for a hot food. The sweet selection - 10 out of 10 and coconut cake amongst many other tasty offerings. Your morning coffee can be warm,so ask for hot ! . The rooms are very plush and comfortable with a minibar service . Entertainment - See michael jackson do his stuff on a monday evening - its a great show. Negatives - there are non smoking areas at this resort,but some flout this rule. When your sat watching at the theatre there will be children around you,and some people smoking as well. Dont expect a welcome meeting from thompson, as they did not turn up for us on two separate occcasions. The hotel staff tell us that "she" never turns up ! After several problems with the afore mentioned , we decided to speak to stephanie - the hotel customer service lady in reception. Stephanie 'today' is wearing a non friendly smile, and has very little interest in what im about to ask. The italian restaurant for our resort was closed, so we had to use next doors. The menu there does not have what you would expect from a italian restaurant - Unless you like pizza warm ! ... We had a great time at the ambar - the beautiful views and the white sands with turquoise waters. Avoid the shopping mall - court area. The looky looky vultures will have you and pressure sell ! Another problem for me - The cars/vans that shuttle you around the resort have no windows and be sure of a chest full of carbon monoxide as they overtake the next one. I have travelled some of america and canada, and have enjoyed each visit,but when 'some' of them arrive at the caribbean, they send out the message that we belong here more than you. For example - multiple tables pushed together in the dining areas, and one big party -for all to hear . Go to the ambar and you will enjoy the food in abundance and taste the french red wines that sink down very easily...
