Scubaman--you may certainly extend your stay, but it wouldn't matter. I still wouldn't be paying!! grin


Aimed at anyone who has eaten there, now the talk of prices is starting to scare me. Is AMBC significantly more than, say, Dreams was? (Setting aside the question of chairs, as I know they charge for chairs there, and Dreams did not.)

Carol,

We’ve been there several times, usually just the two of us and a few times with a group. I would say the prices are comparable to what Dreams was but the difference being you must pay for the lounges - I think anout 20 Eu but could be wrong - other than that, not much difference. And while the fee for lounges upped the ante I think what made our bills crazy expensive were the bottles of wine served on the beach, considering there were a bunch of us. The times we went as a couple neither of us flinched upon presentation of the bill.

To me, the main difference was the setting itself. We enjoy the water and Dreams just wasn’t a swimmable beach, and the beach itself wasn’t that great. You couldn’t fault the food or service in either place.

And in honesty, perhaps ignorance is bliss and not speaking French May have been a blessing but we never experienced attitude on the part of any of the staff. We always made reservations after our first trip and always found the staff to be very pleasant. They asked upon arrival if we spoke Francais or Englais and from that point on they provided us a perfect day in every way.

I would think, that if is off season on a slow day. They should let you dine in one of those cabana's. Maybe a lil grease on the palm wouldn't hurt. LOL!!!


Sand Gravity, got to love it!
