“Beautiful Hotel, Wonderful Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

My wife, 2 kids and I spent an all-too-short vacation at the Sublime just before Christmas 2012. The Sublime truly lived up to its name -- breathtakingly beautiful, wonderful solicitous staff, fantastic food. It is a peaceful, hidden gem!

This hotel is tucked away in one of the remotest parts of Playa Coson, near Las Terrenas. My wife and I went there around Christmas time in 2012 and the service, location, and amenities were simply extraordinary. They made our trip to the Samana Peninsula that much more memorable.

With the mega-resorts in DR, who would have thought that not far off the beaten track was a hidden gem? Sublime Samana has it all. Excellent facility, terrific food and friendly staff. Bruno is a superb manager. This is the place to go if you are tired of resort factories and are looking for something special. We have stayed at many five-star resorts and this ranks right up there with the best.

I recently stayed for a weekend at Sublime Samana, I wanted peace, tranquility and that is what I got. The hotel premises and the staff are most helpful and attentive. The apartments are decorated super nice, everything is in mint condition. The whole experience was indeed sublime! hope to be back soon!!!!

Just returned from our stay and ready to go back! Great, secluded location, but easy to get to from El Catey airport thanks to JetBlue's new direct flight. The landscaping and decor are stylish and beautiful as is the quiet beach. The food prepared by Chef Baez was delicious and fresh, especially the swordfish carpaccio and suckling pig. Special shout out to Carina, Leonardo and Ramon for all their help during our stay!

Just returned from 4 days at Sublime and feel fully restored after sun, sand and peace. The resort is absolutely gorgeous - interior decor well thought through, ample sun loungers at the pool and beach, and hugely spacious rooms. We stayed in a 2-bedroom 2-bathroom suite with outdoor jacuzzi that was well equipped.

If you are coming from Santo Domingo, it is a bit hard to reach (we were three ladies so opted for a taxi), but once you are there, you feel like you have an entire beach to yourself!

Only recommendation would be to expand the dining menu - if you don't have a car and don't want to shell out for the expensive taxi ride to town you are eating all your meals at the resort.

We went there to celebrate my sister 50 years old and we have a great time. It is a paradisiac place....with a beautiful beach, great service and very comfortable room. We stay in a villa with 3 bedroom very close to the beach, with a nice decoration and very spacious, with a full equipped kitchen. The staff is great and they are always looking to serve you well. Surely, we will go there again.
