“Wonderful stay - great place to go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

What a great place! We left Tues Feb 26th from Toronto via Air Transat/Canjet. Took off 10 minutes early. Plane was old and we were squished in, but flight was quick and uneventful except for rude woman in front of my hubbie who left her seat reclined the whole time, including the meal time. Luggage came quick and there were 2 buses leaving for our resort, a big one and small one. We got on the small one, and thanks to a TA person, we got the seat behind the bus driver – that’s the side of the bus to get if you can because you will get the better view of the ocean. The drive is about 40 minutes and is so beautiful, the time flies. We recorded the trip and the video is fantastic. You can see this area will be soon be developed because the beaches are gorgeous and the road is fantastic. Kudos to the Dominicans for building such a fantastic road through the mountains (and solid rock in many places).
We got our room key during the bus trip and the bus took a slight detour through Las Terrenas which is a typical town. Note the shopping isn’t great, a few lovely high end shops which are expensive and the rest are typical tourist shops with t-shirts, paintings and cheap jewellery. We took a taxi to town $ 10 each way. Our room was 1207 and at first I was pretty dismayed thinking we were in building 12 when we emailed and asked for building 1, 3 or 5. Found out when we got to front desk that they remembered my email and put us in building one, 2nd floor, exactly as we asked. When does that ever happen when a hotel is at full capacity? The front desk is extraordinary – they appeared to try 100% to help out everyone, with a smile! An example, our first day there, I saw this ginormous bee on the beach, looked like 3 bees stuck together. I am allergic so put my epipen in the beach bag. The next day, while floating on my floatie, I felt this sharp sting in my arm. My hubbie was with me and immediately pulled a large 2 pronged stinger out of my arm. I kept my arm in the salt water, and then rubbed it with sand. Then we watched it and I seemed to be ok. Later we went to the front desk to ask what the “bee”was. The girl there was so sweet and attentive but obviously had no clue what I wanted, she asked me where the bug was, and I told her on the beach, in the water. I think she thought I wanted them to go find it and get rid of it! But she continued to smile and assured me they would try their best. Now isn’t that sweet? Carlos is amazing as are all of them. So impressed with their service and attention to all their customers. BTW never saw that bee again and no one else got stung so don’t worry about it. It is really a water beetle!
Our room was perfect, Jacuzzi tub that worked well, separate shower, hard bed as others have said, small icky pillows. Note ladies there is no full length mirror; if you want to know which shoes to wear with your dress, you have to climb on the bed or the stool! However there is a magnifying mirror in the bathroom if you want to have a massive view of your pores. It was cleaned well every day, early, and restocked the fridge daily. Our beach towels were in the room when we arrived. We also had turn down service every evening – room 1207 is an upgraded suite for $ 10 extra each per day which was well worth it. We got a small bottle of rum in the room, robes and slippers. It was a 2 minute walk to the lobby and beach which we love because we always go well equipped with bubbas, floaties (note to Canadian, get your bubbas and floaties at Canadian Tire b4 you go) and a ton of other stuff to lug back and forth.
The beach is drop dead gorgeous, so pristine and unspoiled. It is clean and fairly calm –yellow flag for 5 days and then it poured rain our last 2 days which was sad… You can walk forever on the beach, after checking out with the security guards and each end of the complex. I really liked Wilson –the one guard who was so sweet and friendly. If you think of it, try to tip these guys, and the maids who clean the beach bathrooms, the greeter at the buffet and others who aren’t as likely to get tipped. They really appreciate it. The snorkeling isn’t special, hate to say. The reef which is actually exposed during low tide is dead but we were able to see some fish. Lots of people snorkeling late in the day.
The buffet was very good, always something to eat, pasta station very good. We had 4 specialty restaurant dinners included but only booked 3 (btw easy to book at the main lobby, no problem or lineups!). We started with the Seafood – wasn’t very good.. Then the Italian, it was pretty good and then the Gourmet which frankly wasn’t good at all. I didn’t see anything I liked on the menu so ordered 3 starters. They got that all mixed up and never did get the smoked salmon which I really wanted, and was afraid they may deliver after my dessert! Note that they will ask you for your room number at these restaurants which we thought was weird and actually refused to give it to them the first time as upgraded booze can be served and charged to your room (you sign for it) but we wondered if something would be charged from the restaurant to our room. That didn’t happen though, not sure why they ask.
The timeshare guys are fine now - didn't bug us at all and were friendly and professional.
Only negative most people mentioned is lack of something to do in evening. The shows are held in a small theatre and no one could be bothered to go there from the lobby bar so we never saw one show. A couple nights, a guy with an electronic piano played either at the Snack bar or in the lobby. It wasn’t great; a small band would have added a lot to the atmosphere and some of us danced even to the bad music from the one guy. The disco opens so late, we didn’t go to it either, think it opens 11 or 12. So we hung out in lobby bar every night and had a good time thanks to people we met from Winnipeg, Thunder Bay, Oakville, Chile (crazy Dave) and Austria. There are 2 pool tables (no chalk) and a fooz ball table that I got addicted to.
There is a small grocery store just a 10 minute walk from the hotel on the main road to your right which has Clamato, Gatorade, Cranberry juice, booze, cigs etc. Note that there is a fairly high percentage of smokers at the resort but the inside buffet, specialty restaurants and parts of lobby bar are non smoking.
All in all, highly recommend this resort and had a wonderful time, and even though we have never returned to a resort (and we have been to over 20) I would go back to this resort in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: we were lucky to get 1207, building one right next to lobby and beach. Loved it.

Royal Golden from Feb.19 till March 5/2013
Location: 50 min bus ride on the new coastal highway was breath taking
Check-in: Very smooth mostly done on the bus ride.
Room: Stayed in the newer section building 10,11,12. Could not here other room noise, very quite, clean, a bit shy on restocking bar and coffee supplies.
Room Safe: Found the price of $28US a week a bit high.
Resort: Very well laid out, well maintained and very quiet.
Beach: lots of chairs, sun and shade, great snorkeling right off the beach, venders were not pushy.
Buffet: Was very hot at all meals, not air conditioned, service was good.
Bars: Found at the Piscina pool bar that the other bar staff would come and remove the beer so that we had to drink from cans or go without beer at all. This went on for over 4 days. Being a beer drinker only was a bit upsetting.

My wife and I along with some of our friends are just returning (Feb 23rd - Mar 2nd) from a great week at the
El Portillo in Samana. The bottom line of the week is this is a great place to stay, but it
has a few downsides.

Check-in : We were using a private transportation to the resort, so let's say is was a fun
ride across the mountain. Once at the resort, we were greeted into the Golden Club /
Privilege Club lobby to signed the forms, received our keys along with our per-reserved
a la carte restaurants. After this, we were directed to our building and room.

Room : Because of a little mixed up from the previous week, we had to say the first
night into another room (building 8). The room was nice, big enough with all the usual
amenities plus a fully stocked mini-bar. A fruit platter was also on the table in the room.
The bathroom is big with a separate shower and toilet. After that first night, we were
moved into building 1 which is located a few feet from the pool, beach and snack-bar.
The best located buildings are 1, 2 and 3.

Beach : The beach is beautiful with golden sand and clear water. You can walk for hours
outside the resort limits on both sides. The downside is the lack of beach beds... Way
not enough for the number of guest.

Pool : Great location but too small and not enough chair at the main pool. There is a
second, smaller at the from of the resort as it's more seclude.

Restaurants : One great buffet, 3 a la carte restaurants and a fun snack-bar by the
beach. The buffet has a great selection of food. The amount of food is excellent and the
service form the staff is at par with any 5 stars resorts. The a la carte (French, Italian,
Seafood) are great with an excellent service from the staff.

People that go the extra mile : A special thank you to Leandro (guest service manager)
for all the help and great smile during the help. A huge think you to Diomedes the head
waiter the his amazing work, smile and attitude. And finally a think you to Agusto at the
main pool bar for his excellent cocktail the Green Monster.

Room Tip: Try to get rooms in building 1, 2 or 3

This was our 3rd yr. on a return trip to the El Portillo and it was everything we expected. Service was terrific, food great, and the beach is amazing. spent 1 week from Feb. 26th > March 5th.

We found this year that the word must be out on this resort as it was at full capacity... and that they did not have enough staff (in the buffet restaurant) to handle the crowd.... waited almost 20 min. before getting wine with dinner; HOWEVER, hopefully they will realize with a full capacity crowd that they will increase staff especially at the dinner hour.

Disappointed to hear the Rep tell us NOT to walk the beach into Las Terrenas (which they would always recommend).... it is the nearest town and would take approx. 1hr to 1/2 hr. along pristine beach.... apparently since the new highway has opened up the "rubbies" from Santo Domingo are coming up to Samana and there had been reports from travellers from Air Canada, Wet Jet & Air Transat being mugged...... SO, if you plan on walking a fair distance... remove all jewellery, watches and do not carry any cash...... was so saddened to hear about this......
however, we took a taxi into Las Terrenas as we previously have done in the past 2 yrs. and were not approached and felt very safe in the town doing our shopping.

On the whole, this is like others state a very quiet resort not a place if you want to party and would recommend to others to experience a gorgeous walking beach that is not crowded like Punta Cana.

on the way from the airport we were given some forms to feel out to speed up the check-in. Our rooms were supposed to be ready just as we arrived which was around 1.15. They did not check us in till 4.30 sending us back and forth and asking to fill out endless forms. The room was clean but a far cry from 5 star which is what the hotel rates apparently. There is an ancient TV which did not work for 3 and a half days. The beds are rock hard. There are no face cloths, no conditioner or body lotion. There was no clock in the room and when we asked housekeeping for one we were told to call the reception to find out what time it was. We asked somebody else and we got the clock except it did not work! The hotel in general is very dark. Eating fish in the dining room was really tricky. They only had every other light bulb going and those were the energy efficient ones that give hardly any light, There were not enough tablet around the lobby bar but that just as well because there were only two waitresses and they would only come to you if you tipped them every time. there was no music playing at any time and it was quite dingy. You were pretty much on your own to entertain yourself. The staff were unfriendly with very few exceptions. There were no smiles or "Ola-s" and you had to walk around the hotel employees if they were standing in your way because they would not move to let you pass. You are their guest... but really more like a nuisance The food was average - not terrible but nothing to get excited about. There was a brawl at the bar and the security people instead of discreetly removing the troublemaker, they just stood there and watched. Finally, they brought the man's wife into the bar with her two children in tow and asked her to take her husband away. The poor lady was so embarrassed we did not see her for the rest of the stay. Complete lack of professionalism. My husband and I were hit by flying glass during the brawl so the manager took us to the lobby to look after the cuts. She got our room number and we thought there will be some sort of apology but to our dismay, the manager pretended not to see us for the rest of the time. The front desk is useless and full of empty promises. This was a horrible vacation and we will never go back to the Dominican or to any of the Bahias. Our best experience was with Iberostar which I highly recommend. My advise - AVOID El Portillo AT ALL COSTS!

Room Tip: Buildings 9, 10, 11 are more quiet. Ask for a higher floor if you can (no elevators) because you mig...

Here is a brief overview of my experience
LOCATION: 4o minute bus ride from the airport along a scenic coastal route
BEACH: clean, calm, no seaweed, nicer than in Punta Cana, good snorkeling, good for walking
RESORT: small, well laid-out and maintained, very clean public washrooms, would have appreciated more non-smoking sections,
LIGHTING: too dim throughout the entire complex, even in the rooms
ROOMS: worn, but clean. Housekeeping was done around 5PM. Towels were not always delivered by that time. Could hear the people above us.
ROOM SAFES: Lots of confusion here. Be sure to double check the accuracy on your receipts.
MAIN DINING ROOM: Noisy, but adjacent to a lovely, quiet terrace where we ate most of the time. Wide selection of food which was generally good but not outstanding. Coffee spoons were always hard to get at breakfast time.
A LA CARTE RESTAURANTS: Lovely atmosphere. Good beef in both the Portofino and the Orchidea Restaurants.
SERVICE: Very friendly ...Diomedes is a remarkable and conscientious waiter.
DRINKS: Limited selection, but generally better than at the Bahia Principe Ambar

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor are probably quieter.

We stayed at the El Portillio for 2 weeks; 3 couples and a 4th couple joined us for 1st week. The hotel is beautiful; the grounds are immaculate, lush and tropical, along with the beautiful clean beach; staff take pride in keeping everything so clean, even the beach washrooms are super clean. Small resort, but easy to get around; beautiful lobby with shiny, polished floors. Lots of food choices for every meal; great food and ice cream; the deep-fried croutons in buffet were fabulous. For a 2 week stay would prefer more than 3 A La Cartes, but they were good restaurants.

Carlos ( Mgmt), was very courteous, helpful, ensured that any requests were dealt with promptly& cheerfully. The Reception staff were cheerful & prompt. The staff are friendly and helpful & appreciate if you try to speak even a little Spanish; the girls who greet you in the buffet are so sweet & cheerful. The animation staff are great; especially Charlie who is so funny with his costumes and entertainment throughout the resort.

I loved the greeting with the Bahia song when we arrived, and again the goodbye song when we departed was so nice.
We took a taxi ($10) into Las Terrenas, 2 times; we loved it; the 2nd time we went earlier in the day to avoid their afternoon siesta where a lot of stores close for a few hours. The beach vendors can keep you busy, but their merchandise is pretty good & comparable to Las Ter. (better prices); but if you say no, they accept it.
The whole scenery in Samana and along the way to & from airport, is beautiful. We would go back to this lovely resort, anytime.
