This Hotel was amazing! My first trip to the Dominican. This Hotel was beautiful, clean, the staff were very friendly and the nightly entertainment was very good. The beach was beautiful and staff were constantly making sure it stayed clean. I would go back in a heart beat!

My husband and I travelled to Samana last year and the experience was awesome. The staff were awesome and so friendly. I actually had lost my camera on our last day and they were so helpful. Luckily someone turned it in and I left very happy :). Our room wasn't high up, that would be the only thing I would... More

The hotel is very pretty but the service is not 5 star service and the food isn't either. I had issues with the air conditions in the room and called a few times and it did not get fixed while I was there with my family.

My husband and I came on an all inclusive trip. The resort was very nice. It was huge but overall decor is outdated. The staff are friendly and very welcoming. You had variety at the buffets and different restaurants to venture out to. The beach was beautiful....but a pain to get to as the elevator was out of order for... More

The hotel is located in a secluded area at the end of a road on top of a hill. It has a beautiful view of the ocean, the city just across the bay and is basically surrounded by mountains. We had a problem with our room on the second day due to fumes coming up into our room from the... More

This hotel has the best views I have ever seen. It is stunningly beautiful. The hotel should not be confused with the island hotel known as Bacardi island. It has an great beach, and main pool is ok too. sunbeds are hard to get though. especially around the pool. The food is ok. Other facilities are not worth mentioning really,... More

It's a hotel to enjoy swimming pool with the open bar and free buffet. It's not expansive, don't wait an high quality but for the price, it's a very good deal! Day trips are expansive. The staff is very friendly.

This is a place that has not been touched by millions of sightseeing groups & overcrowded beaches. We drove 2 hours from Santo Domingo airport by shuttle. The sights were amazing. Saw nature untouched. Lots of farm animals, crops of rice patties & beutiful palms. Arrival to our hotel was breath taking! Bohemian in appearance. The staff is so friendly... More

No doubt that the hotel is great. All facilities are good, but the view of the bay at night is unique. The beach is very nice and the view from the elevator to the beach is wonderful. It is a place to return for another holiday. Thing to improve for the management: the restroom was equipped with a jacuzzi, but... More
