My family of four spent three nights at this ecolodge and loved it. Our room was quirky, playful, and comfortable. Lots of steps up to the room near the top, but the views are worth it. We sat on the terrace when we woke up and enjoyed seeing rainforest, mangroves and the Samana peninsula in the distance. Nights were amazing, with lots of stars in the sky. The pools were a real treat in the mornings, as we had them mostly to ourselves. It was fun trying the various slides and hiding behind the waterfalls. Juan Carlos took us on an excursion in the mangroves and to two caves one morning. We highly recommend taking a tour with him - he is personable and knowledgeable. A really unique experience, we hope to return sooner rather than later.

I went to Caño Hondo With 15 people and 2 infants. I had written to them prior on whatsapp at least 2 weeks before so they knew we were coming. We did a day pass which was about 19$ or so dollars per person discounts if the group is big. This price automatically includes the buffet at 12pm as well as ongoing tea & coffee in the dining area. You be there all day and swim in all the natural pools. Very relaxing there usually is not a lot of people and the music and everything is just calming. Loved it❤️

Unique setting with wonderfully integrated very personal buildings among 12 small waterfall pools. A lovely place where the only drawbacks are the last 9 km of very bad road and the lack of other restaurants than the hotel's own. Fine 4 km track through the jungle to the Grey Owls Cave, boat trips through mangrove swamps to caves with Taino petroglyphs also highly recommended. We stayed three nights here and three nights in the adjoining sister hotel (where the sounds from the waterfalls were absent but you had same access to pools, etc.)

I did a day trip to Los Haitises and spent the rest of the afternoon at this remarkably beautiful resort. There was an open buffet with great food and cocktails. It was such a relaxing getaway with a tranquil and natural scenery. The resort features a number of pools built into and around natural stones with interesting ancient architecture. Would absolutely visit again to experience an overnight stay!

We stayed at Caño Hondo for 1 night with a group of friends. The room was simple and clean with a rustic touch. We enjoyed the beauty of the natural pools and the variety of wildlife on property. We felt like we got our money’s worth for the price of the room, and would definitely recommend this hotel to other travelers.

When I returned to Canada I found out that they charged my credit card about $240 when it shod have been $60. Beware of the thieves at the front desk. Other family members paid cash. I think they pocketed the cash and charged card for everything

My party of six adults were pleasantly surprised at the beauty of this place. For long we wanted to visit the Sabana de la Mar area but did not know where to stay for our overnight trip. Paraiso Cano Hondo was the only accommodation we found during our online search. What a surprise! This place is absolutely magnificent. We stayed at the upper hotel, which is a three-year building that rises over the edge of a rock mountain. What a view of Samana Bay from our upper room! Everything inside was made of natural wood or rocks that resemble the mountain that surrounded the building. Everything seems to be carefully designed and artsy. The staff was very pleasant and professional. We are especially grateful to the manager, Heidi, who was extremely helpful the night we arrived and assisted us in getting to our unit. We stayed in room #10 in the upper hotel. It was very roomy and could accommodate up to ten people. We were surrounded with nature at every turn. Our only complaint was the horrible condition of the 18 km-long road leading from Sabana de la Mar to Cano Hondo. It is a dirt road covered with potholes. A good vehicle, preferably SUV or truck is a must.

We stayed here for three nights in a grand 4-level space that accommodated 7 of us -- 3 generations. The view was gorgeous and we spent much time watching the birds. (A pair of bananquits were building a nest inside the restaurant!) The food was plentiful but very slow in coming. The trips (boating and kayaking) were grand, as were the pools and the zip wire. Two of us rode horses that were not very energetic (one was appropriately named "Sleepy.") Activities for everyone!

I made the mistake of wandering to the swimming pools and having breakfast at their buffet thinking it is part of the Altos hotel just up the slope. My husband had coffee here and my kids picked on their eggs and tapioca like thing, only to throw them away because they all tasted awful. We were slapped with the buffet price of $15/head for all 5 of us costing us nearly $100 with taxes for very little food. They did this purposefully seeing we wore the tags of the upper hotel. Apparently they are in conflict and we ended up paying the price. Breakfast was included in our stay at the upper hotel and we didnt know this cafe was not part of the upper hotel. No one said anything before we ate though they saw our tags and exchanged glances. They just slapped us with a huge bill. If they want to fight with the upper hotel, do it directly, please dont use unsuspecting customers as scapegoats.
