This is busiest terminal area I have visited. I had no idea how many things there were to do -- for free! Great place to take children. Free, clean pool area. Lots of places to shop in the beautiful shopping plaza. Many benches to sit and take a break (for us older travelers). Beautiful waterfalls. There is a viewing tower to see the area from. You'll enjoy spending time in this spot for hours.
The place is OK. The port area itself is very "touristy" and it looks pretty much like many of the other ports in the Caribbean. Exploring the city was fine, but nothing to brag. Very poor place. No great, unique sites. There is a very small fort that looks OK. The beach is pretty. The cab drivers insist in taking you to the "amber Museum", "Chocolate Factory" and "Rum Factory" tours. The Rum Factory tour costs $4 a person, but the others are free. The intent is trying to sell you stuff at the end.
I stopped in several shops in The Terminal de Crucero Amber Cove. They had very nice and inexpensive souvenirs, beautiful colorful clothing and you could also book excursions there. It also had a cople of restaurants and cafes. We stopped at a restaurant at the end of the pier which had a beautiful view of the beach and a great view of the ship docked in the harbor. At the restaurant I had an appetizer it was very delicious and a cocktail was good but it came in a clear small plastic cup. For the two items, tax and gratuity came to $26 which wasn't too bad but I was disappointed in the size of drink compared to its price. Beautiful restaurant and very friendly staff members. I bought some very pretty jewelry from the open vendors sections.
This is a Carnival built port and it shows. Port is kept us very nicely. There is a pool with a nearby bar if you want to stay in port. Several nice shops nearby before you exit to the taxis to take you to the city. You will be shockingly alarmed at the difference in the carnival owned port versus the actual city which is very much a developing 3rd world.
We had a lot of fun at the pool. It was perfect for the kids. Then after a few hours of fun in the sun, we went to the shops. There was a shop to fit everyone's taste.
Adorable port, very tourist friendly. I recommend you get out for an excursion. My family and I did the waterfall tour - super fun, slightly physically demanding with a 35 minute hike up some stairs & small hills. That being said, we had a lot of very unhealthy people in our tour group make it up, nonetheless! Take the earliest excursion you can so that you can finish up the day with pool lounging and port terminal wandering.
This was actually outside of the hotel area on a virgin beach called Teco. Loved the place! It was completely empty. We were the only ones there. It was a bit cloudy but we managed to have a great time. You can walk really far and the water will still be shallow.
I loved it. It very nice and lovely. Even if u don't go on excursions u have bars, shops, lovley mini parks and etc..Me personally loved it the Panorama bar on the top of the hill. Perfect location.
What a beautiful port terminal. It's newer. Has a huge pool, zip lines, a restaurant and plenty of shopping. What a contrast to the rest of the island which is so dirty and very poor. If you cruise here, just stay in port. It's too depressing once you leave.
This is a little tourist stop on my recent cruise. Everything is geared to tourism. The island stop is beautiful and the prices reasonable. Of course, you choose to buy within the boundaries of your purchasing abilities. 😊 Perhaps, if they had more local eateries for those stopping by, 5 stars would be reachable.
Another cruise port where an excursion is not necessary. Sunloungers aplenty, great pool, water slides and zip line. Brilliant pool bar and the local people are just so friendly and professional. Sailing away from here at the end of the day is a hard thing to do.
It's a newer cruise terminal, well maintained. The staff was very friendly and eager to help us find where our tour was meeting. We stopped at some of the shops there and the vendors were friendly, not pushy.
Lovely port. It's man made for the tourists. Has everything you need there plus a great pool.
Amber Cove is a beautiful, safe port that has tons to offer! But ... definitely explore outside the area,just dome rent a car like we did. Praise the Lord my husband is an awesome driver,they do not follow traffic rules and you have to negotiate around a zillion mopads. Take the tram to the top of the mountain, gorgeous views. The people are very pushy outside of the Amber Cove walls so be prepared they will hustle you and force their items more than any place I have been. We rented a car for $75 and explored everywhere, it was an adventure,but like I said I don't recommend that. I spoke to a couple that rented a taxi for 5 hours for $70 that waited and stayed with them- that's the route to go. The excursion for water falls was very popular.
Pretty decent place for a tourist port. Shops were pretty generic touristy shops, not much of anything interesting in port. If you're here, go out and explore the surrounding area. Do some excursions. You're greatly missing out if you stay in the port. I recommend jumping off of the Damajagua waterfalls.
Amber Cove is amazing! WiFi is $8 all day if you want it. The pool is handicap friendly. The bar has reasonable prices and zip lining is $20 a day. We didn’t even leave the port area. There is a Alamo and National rents car company and tons of tours available. Lots of culture and tons of fun!
Just love this port. The place is wonderful. The locals make you feel very welcome. Lots of excursions. Shopping area is large and includes a market place where the locals sell their items
Shops were very nice. Well air conditioned. Good choices of various items to purchase. Vendors were all very friendly! Area was very clean. Not many eatery places.
