My wife and I recently spent a week at La Samanna. It was our second visit. Our experience was wonderful. Upon arriving at the resort, we felt secluded and pampered beyond our dreams. The beach is one of the most beautiful we have ever seen. But, though the grounds, facilities and the beach stand out, the staff is their greatest asset. They make you feel special - from treating you to fruit, pastries and water on the beach, to remembering your dinner and wine preference. The concierge was helpful with off-hotel arrangements and our needs were well anticipated. The accommodations were very comfortable and stylish. The decor was tropical contemporary. We will make this resort a regular stop in the future and hope to bring our families along.
