I had a great time! This was my first vacation and I thought it was great! The rooms were beautiful and I thought it was a good idea to have a few different "living areas". ( we had the small hotel room) There was a lot of activities and the food was good, La Carte was great the only thing... More

It is a beautiful place to take our vacation because we love nature and the hotel is immersed in the most beautiful natural part of Dominican Republic. I love customer service, food and swimming pools my kids enjoyed it a lot. I hope to return soon to breathe the tranquility and enjoy the beautiful view that inhabits this place ..!

Let me start by saying that only paid $617CAD/person for one week. I was not expecting it to be fabulous. I was traveling with my two children aged 8 and 10 and my mother. The pools were the biggest problem. They were small, greenish water, cloudy water (could not see my feet), and had a variety of debris from leaves... More

We visited as a family of four, with two young teenagers. This is a family-oriented resort so, if you are a party animal, just forget it and try Bahia Principe in Samana. Most people there were couples with children or couples experiencing their second honeymoon. The food was amazing in terms of both, diversity and presentation. The same goes for... More

The holiday package was great value for money during the off season, although I would recommend better quality resorts in the Samana area, especially during high season when prices increase. In North American standards, this is a three star resort and you receive three star treatment and services. Reception staff leave a lot to be desired in terms of client... More

This resort is very relaxing but needs a few updates here and there. The food is your typical local fare and the wait staff are very attentive. The weekends are very busy with the locals taking advantage of special deals to fill the resort so can be a little annoying. During the week, very quiet with mostly tourists looking for... More
