We rented a 1 BR condo from the owner, very pleased with the rate. Incredible view of Samana Bay. Two private beaches for this community of about 100 units. Gorgeous beaches but a very steep paved walk up and down! Pools are lovely, food is great, good attentive service. Prices ok in restaurant but 28 percent service charge adds up. Not too full, was very peaceful, with other guests both Dominican and international. One US ex-pat said he prefers this to the all-inclusive resorts. Pretty isolated, local Dominican communities nearby, poor, few things to buy and no regular markets. A $20 taxi ride one way to Samana town, which is still pretty basic. We didn't have a car, so didn't get out much but we were very happy here. Did a fantastic tour with Terry 's Tours to national park and Cayo Levantado.
Internet in bar / restaurant makes it kind of a community center. Made some good friends. Feel very secure here, gated community, security guys always on beach. Great waves, which as a bodysurfer I love.
