Beautiful port but shopping area needs to be improved with more stores. Too generic. Also would be better with another restaurant.

Very clean. Large pool with plenty of lounge chairs. Zipline over the pool (for a $20 unlimited fee) and free waterslides at the pool. We enjoyed simply chilling by the pool.

Dominican Republic is an interesting dichotomy. The port is beautiful, but once you ride past the pretty, it is depressing. Garbage everywhere, and CRAZY drivers.

Not too much to see. A drive to a park and a walk across the street to shop.

Took the Puerto Plata with Lunch tour, and it was amazing. Puerto Plata is colorful, colonial, cultural, authentic, and fun! Enjoyed the cigar factory (free samples!) Lunch activity was touristic and tacky but the stew was delicious. Rum samples were also available and very good - ended up purchasing a bottle I wasn't planning on, as well as cigars and beautiful crafts. Would definitely return here; great port for excursions. If you go independent maybe not so much - didn't see a whole lot to do at the port without a tour. Read Less

We shared a taxi with another couple and a lovely gentleman took us on a three-hour tour, including the cigar factory, a rum factory, and a chocolate factory for $80 (total for all of us). All ship's tours are overpriced cattle cars.

This was an area that contained lots of shops and places to lay by a pool (not free). Very touristy.

Our group went on a private excursion to Brugal Rum Factory and Big Lee's Beach Bar with Marisol Tours. Great experience and loved Big Lee's.

We went on the beach horseback riding excursion. The tour to get there was fine. But they were behind schedule and we had to wait in something like a barn for 30 minutes minutes. Then they put us on the horses, who were all kicking each other! Then we got to the beach, we never went into the water with the horse, which was ok. But the description said we would spend an hour on the beach. We got not even 5 minutes, that really irritated me. One girl even cut her leg when riding the horse, it was not that safe. We got back with an hour and a half to spare. Did the zip line, nothing great. Wish they had a beach or something nearby. The excursion desk though did giver us a partial refund for the excursion.

Cab rides to the nice beaches were super expensive. Prob should have gone to the nearby pool area. Got some cool pix of the big Amber Cove letters.

Port is away from everything. We hired a car and drove around parts of the island.

We took the monkey kingdom excursion. Awful!!! Nowhere did it say there was an hour and a half bus ride to the monkey park where you spend 30 minutes before driving another hour and a half back. Terrible.
