386 Amber Cove (Puerto Plata) Cruise Reviews

Pool was great and there was plenty of chairs around the pool. The music was loud but they did turn it off later in the day.

We did the Outback excursion. Our tour guide was Manny and he was a delight. Very knowledgable, informative and lots of personality. We got to see a lot of the city on our way to a school where we got to spend time with children. We then had lunch with a local family, which was delicious. We also got to go to the beach for a while and got massages on the beach. We were very surprised with the beauty of the countryside....lots of mountains and so green! Read Less

The Outback Advanenture, guided by Manny and Victor, was beyond our expectations. Enjoyed a cultural, historic, geographic, food/drink, and beach experience.

Amber Cove is a great place to walk around, use the wifi and spend some relaxing time at the pool and swim up bar. I wish HAL would tell more people about the free facilities. We met several folks who had no idea what was offered.

Beautiful area, we went to Playa Bachata for the day, walkable from the port, approx. $37 pp for the day, food, drink , beach and pools. There is no beach at the cruisedock area, just a large pool area with chairs.

we took an excursion with a third party operator of the 27 waterfalls. My wife and I did I think the 13 waterfalls, which was actually almost all of the way up as the 27 waterfalls wasn't that much further apparently and had just a bunch of smaller ones. There were some really high jumps and before jumping it was pretty freaky but it was very memorable and fun. I did end up with a sore bottom after this excursion though. Read Less

I almost didn't want to get off but I am so glad we did. This port is wonderful. So up to date and wonderful for families with children. My beau went zip-lining and I had my hair braided. Hair braids was $17 and zip-lining was $20 ... Read More
I almost didn't want to get off but I am so glad we did. This port is wonderful. So up to date and wonderful for families with children. My beau went zip-lining and I had my hair braided. Hair braids was $17 and zip-lining was $20 for all day long. The port was not crowded since a Carnival ship had gotten there and decided the seas were to rough and changed their mind about docking and went onto somewhere else. Sorry for what they missed but LUCKY US! Read Less

Lot's to do at this port if you want to avoid excursions. Enjoyed strolling through the shops and boutiques. Although there was no beach is within the port, there is a beautiful resort style pool with swim up bars and in pool loungers. We spent most of our day here and had a few drink with lunch at the pool side restaurant. Access to the pool is free whether or not you purchase drinks or food. Drinks and food are reasonably priced. Local staff on this island are friendly and never bothered by anyone trying to sell anything. A very nice relaxing day spent all at the port. Read Less

Take a cab to do the waterfalls avoid carnivals excursions. It was only $30 including cab and jumps. We also did more falls than carnival does. This is an amazing excursion and totally worth it. Keep in mind it does require a hike to get up into the falls so must be able to walk a decent distance. Read Less

You can’t really go outside the port, since it seems Amber Cove is an island off of the Dominican Republic. The pool and zip line there are fun.

On a previous trip we enjoyed volunteer opportunities with local people. This time we just hung out in the port by the marvelous fresh-water pool and shopping in some of the port shops. It was one of our favorite stops.

Carnival catamaran excursion was fantastic. Big Mama was hilarious! They were very concerned with staff and we saw many fish.

Beautiful! Huge pool and area to hang out right at the port! Lots of little shops to explore. The best part was the rooftop bar! We did an excursion to Oceanworld to swim with the Dolphins- it was a little long for my taste, I would have liked to return to the port sooner to enjoy the pool and waterslides and rooftop bar.
