This was our 3rd time at this resort - (7 days in 2011, 14 days in 2012, and 14 days in 2014) and again, very relaxing, and good value for money. We prefer to stay in Building 7 or 8 and our requests, sent by email prior to arrival, were always accommodated, even though email not acknowledged. Always found something... More

We chose this location because it looked like it was off the beaten track and having been to Punta Cana, we were attracted by the promise of the "Old Caribbean" and a more laid back and relaxed setting. The location is beautiful and the beach was amazing. The locals are quite nice and we didn't find them any more pushy... More

We arrived with an open mind and were happily surprised at what this resort offers for the affordable price we paid. My wife and I have been to the DR 15 times and have stayed at 3* to 6* resorts. This was a solid 4* experience at a 3* price. I agree with most of the past reviewers that you... More

I also loved the fact that there were always chairs anytime of the day..this was amazing. The resort was very clean, our room was very nice and clean and we had... More

This tropical resort is nestled away in Samana Bay at Las Galeras. The location is remote, given the long drive involved, but let me assure you that it provides you with such natural beauty & a scenic Paradise. Good name. The property had everything we needed for our two week stay. We arrived in the night & were given a... More
