Typical caribbean island

We went there for some snorkeling and enjoy the boat tour. Many people there but, plenty of room. It worth it.

The island is gorgeous, the water is clear and beautiful blue. We booked the VIP tour and were told it would be a private experience for our boat group. This isn't really the case there was a beach spot for our group, but there are many spots set aside on the same beach and we can all see each other.... More

As it was my first time in Caribbean, I was speechless. Like a postcard. We were there few hours and time went too fast. Quite crowded island, but that we did expect. Beautiful turquoise waters, amazing beaches, soft white sand. Speedboat was fun, food was good, sunny day, good atmosphere in the air. Something to remember. Money well spent.

Took the Amstar Saona Adventure VIP tour. 8 hr. trip where you spent the day with dozens of other catamarans snorkeling, hunting for starfish (this is a scam because they were plastic and thrown by guides from boat) and left on the island for 2.5 hours. Served a lobster lunch which although good caused several visitors stomach problems the next... More

Read the long review someone left from 2008... I don't feel like typing it all out but it's spot on. We just did this march 18th 2017 me and my girlfriend 24 years old. It was a huge let down. I recommend the Mini Cooper tour offered by "side by side" 1000% better and they take you to one of... More

Nice but very commercial island. The trip from bayahibe can be as interesting as saona itself. Anyway it is a place you absolutely have to visit. No doubt.

Our group really enjoyed Isla Saona. We did it with a group and we took a bus to the dock and then took a smaller boat to a catamaran. We were on the catamaran for about an hour and then we took a smaller boat to get to the island. the island was very pretty and I would recommend it.

The island of Saona is beautiful. The water is clear and the sands are white. We were there with the Dreams Resort. They had a great selection of food and an amazing dance floor with music. We loved the open bar with our favorite bartender Carlos! And the very helpful Sergio. A great experience!

This place left me speechless, it was not so crowded and the landscape is just like in the postcards. It doesnt get much perfect... Please please respect this gem and leave it as savage as possible.
