The Runaway Bay area has come on since we last went and is much more pleasant to walk around now that they have a decent footpath.
What to say about the staff?, wonderful from day one to leaving , its like an extended family over there ,the entertainment can be a bit `samey` but the live house band are superb.
Can`t wait to get back there already.

The room was clean and we had a king sized bed which now back at home our double seems too small. The food was good and although there was not a huge selection it was fine for us (lots of fruit and salad and carvery including roast beef on sundays!.
We went on the shuttle bus to Ochio Rios and were met with rather keen market sales people!! This was our only negative experience! The trip to Bob Marley's birth place was great and we learnt a lot about Bob on the CHUKKA Tours local bus.
Club Ambiance was a really relaxing place with all you needed to make a great holiday. Free beach towels, floats to go in the water or lay on. Shower gel in the bathroom, hairdryer and iron (a must on holiday!!)
Colin the breakfast and lunch chef was always so cheerful, Richard the Restuarant supervisor was a keen Cricket fan (we were there during the cricket world cup). Captian Kirk was the most amazing dancer and we will miss them all. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone who likes a small friendly hotel.

The journey from Montego Bay Airport to resort currently takes around one hour and fifteen minutes this is because much of the main highway leading to the Ochio Rhios area is being constructed (we were told that it had already been going on for seven years and was supposed to be completed last year but it looked to me like they have only just started !)
The hotel is on two floors with the upper rooms enjoying the best views, there are no lifts and there are wide shallow steps seperating some sections of the hotel. Depending on your room you may get some road noise. It has a pleasant almost quaint appearance with a lot of the woodwork painted in vivid caribbean colours, the doors to the rooms and some other areas could do with repainting but the grounds and accommodation was always spotlessly clean.
Check in at Club Ambiance was an easy affair, we were greeted with a delicious fruit punch drink and friendly staff waiting to transport luggage to your room, I was a little concerned that you are immediatly asked to sign a blank credit card slip in order to cover any none included services you might require during your stay.
The rooms are spacious and clean, they are serviced every day and although on paper they have all of the requirements of a modern hotel such as, plenty of towels, coffee maker, fridge, satelite T.V, hairdryer, ironing board etc they are very dated and the standard of decor falls well below that of a modern hotel.
However, the views from our balconies was superb, our rooms overlooked the pool and the sea and that view went a long way to overcome the disapointing rooms.
The Hotel is adult only all inclusive and therefore all of the activities are available all of the time, pool tables, table tennis, shuffle board, water sports are all there for you and the

Club Ambiance is an Adults Only resort and from the moment you arrive you are made to feel very welcome.
The rooms were spacious and our maid looked after us extremely well. Our 4 Poster Bed 'honeyroom' suite looked over the Carribbean and the man made beach.
Although the beach was small it was never crowded and you were able to get a sunbed either here or around the pool with very little effort.
The staff were some of the best we had ever met and go out of their way to help always with a smile on their face.
The food was good and varied and we sampled nearly all the cocktails on offer. The nightly entertainment was of a high standard and when this finished usually around 11pm the nightclub took over and you could get drinks (still within your all inclusive deal) for as long as you wanted to.
This is not a large luxury resort but we preferred the laid back atmosphere which attracts many repeat guests. We visited Oches Rios, Dunns Falls and of course Nine Miles where Bob Marley is laid to rest and this particularly will stay in my mind for a long time.
A fantastic 2 weeks which we rated ten out of ten.

We found the location of the hotel ideal, well within reach of all the tours. The hotel staff were excellent, always smiling and prepared to look after you and ensure you enjoyed your holiday.
The entertainment staff worked constantly. We would certainly recommend this hotel if you like a friendly laid back atmosphere.
