Amber Cove, Dominican Republic offers one Day Pass shore excursion. Fortunately, it's a great resort. Treat yourself to a truly VIP experience during your day at port with this all inclusive resort below.
We’ve cruised to the Dominican Republic many times and have done the “standard” tours. They’re great. Amber Cove has amazing beaches, blue waters, weather, and people.
We’ve also realized that the most convenient way to take advantage of Amber Cove's asssets is with a Resort Day Pass.
Why choose a resort day pass in Amber Cove?
There are a bunch of reasons for choosing an All Inclusive Day Pass. Here are our top few.
Dominican Republic is not the safest cruise port in the Caribbean. We wouldn't necessarily say that it's "dangerous." But, safety should always be a priority when selecting your Amber Cove cruise excursion. Only use a reputable tour provider if not choosing a resort. And please be very careful when engaging in commerce with locals.
A resort is your best option if safety is a concern. You'll have no worries within the protected walls of any option below. Security and privacy are valuable amenities at these resorts. We’ve never heard of an incident at this Puerto Plata resort. In the rare chance of a health or security issue, you'd want to be at this resort vs an alternative excursion option!
From our map below, you can see that this resort is near your Amber Cove Cruise Port. You'll access the property with a short taxi ride. You can expect to travel roughly 15 minutes from port to your destination.
You'll have every amenity at your fingertips. No need to worry about haggling over price, finding food, renting beach chairs, etc. And you won’t need to check your watch constantly to make sure your excursion provider will get you back on time. Your only inconvenience will be deciding which drink to order next. This is an easy “problem” to solve since drinks are all-inclusive.
Most organized shore excursions are run by “mom and pop” shops. Many do a great job. But, they’re not held to the same standards as the resort properties. These hotel destinations have much larger budgets. They also have a larger staff for maintenance. When compared to a typical cruise excursion, you can expect that resorts will have newer beach chairs, fresher towels, cleaner restrooms, and a higher level of overall quality.
You’ll see the cost of an all-inclusive day pass averages roughly $100 per person. Sunscape is significantly less expensive at $59 per adult. This is one of the cheapest resort day pass options we've ever seen.
And you'll get much more for the cost when compared to the average shore tour! A beach excursion includes many "hidden" costs. You might pay for beach access. Chair rentals will cost $20 per. Drink costs will likely be double that. Then you'll likely want to tack on events like kayaking or snorkeling.
You can easily spend $100 per person going "a la carte." And you'll likely leave a bit hungrier and “thirstier” than if the situation were all-inclusive. There's also an intangible value to the buffet style. The freedom to order whatever you want all day long is a huge bonus. All is provided below for relatively cheap cost.
Cost Comparison All Inclusive vs OtherA resort day pass will cost roughly $100 per person. That may seem expensive. Consider all of the incidentals with a normal excursion. You'll often purchase rental chairs, food, drink, and equipment rental. These can quick add up to exceed a resort pass!
If you’ve gotten this far, we’ll assume you’re “all-in” for a resort day pass in Amber Cove. Good decision. You'll be happy with your choice!
