“Beautiful place to enjoy a real vacation!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

My mom, sister and I looked for a tropical place to vacation. When looking at the website I loved how isolated from traffic, people and stores it is. I wanted to take a whole week off and just lounge. When we arrived at the airport we were excited and a bit scared because it we were all females, but our taxi driver, Pedro Lamberto, was great. Very respectful and friendly. The hotel was clean, the staff were great except for Juan Carlos, usually a bartender. He always had a sour face when I asked for drinks. The pools were always clean, the food was tasty and the evening shows were really entertaining. The weekend did get a bit loud, but nothing we couldnt handle. I loved that although the resort was isolated the town, Las Galeras was walking distance. We got to see native homes, restaurants, and part of their daily lives which is something I really wanted to take in. We had no problems in the week we stayed there, cant wait to visit the cariebbean again!
CONS:
The hotel has an expensive mini mart, typical.
The wifi was $5 USD for 30 mins.
The taxis were expensive. They charge is USD so just be mindful, you can take public transportation, but we decided not to.
We are Mexican, and we did need some chile, jalapenos, or salsa in our food haha

Room Tip: We had a room in the second level in building 7, and we had no problem. We had a balcony with a view...

This was a great vacation, the only downside is how busy it gets on the weekend but throughout the week it is very relaxing and quiet. Julio, the reception manager, definitely gets a shout-out. Any questions we had or anything we requested was given great attention and priority.

Room Tip: Any room is good, they're all very similar.

If you intend to get a nice experience of what Dominican Republic is, DO NOT GO HERE, and this is a dominican speaking, you wont even get an ounce of the experience. The ROOM: hot A/C if thats even possible, uncomfortable, small, old, squeeky beds, no views. the FOOD: repetitive, regular taste, extremely fatty. the POOL: OMG do you want Pseudomona? Green water... DO NOT GET IN. the BEACH: pretty, practically the only good moment that made me not go back home was taking a tan in the beach watching the small pieces of pretty water. the BAR: terrible, the cheapest alcohol you can find, that didnt even get me near drunk, to overcome the bad experience, we had to go to a local market to get some good rum, we went to have pizza to town for dinner, and fresh fish to the beach outside the hotel cause food was baaaad. But tourists seldom have a car or know how to get around so i dont recomend it. STAFF are nice, but useless when you need something solved, our A/C was never fixed we sweated all night didnt rest at all. DO NOT GO THERE. its a dominican sayin so...

I was there on my own for two weeks, and i enjoyed every second!
Danced all night long, and eat so fresh stuff and did some gym and had fun with all people there. you can have the hardest party in your life, but you can also relax on the beautiful beach with a cold drink and latin music!
Especially the three animators Zapata, Frank and Aspirina are the best dancers in the world. They bring you back to life and you can't stop loving your life.
best memories!!!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2011

The property is large. You will feel like you are sorrounded in nature. It has one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. We went in September and the water was warm and felt delicious. There were turtles and fish in the pond and horses and birds all over the property. There are entertainment and games to be played all over from kayaking to volleyball and ping pong and pool tables. The rooms were clean and well-kept. Our over all stay was pleasant. We really enjoyed Samana and would recommend El Limon waterfall were you get to ride horses and enjoy the view of an amazingly enormous water fall. We also visited Cayo levantado which was nice but to me it was just another beach while El rincon beach was very interesting because is where a river meets the ocean. The river's water was super cold while the beach was warm in the botton and super cold on the surface. It was a truly different and amazing experience.
