Just don't go there. Nothing really worth to go this particular hotel for. 6 out of 7 got stomach problems. Food or water is to blame - I don't know and don't really care. Tipping personnel is useless, that has no effect on service whatsoever. Very beautiful wasted by "I don't care" management.

We had an awesome time at this resort. We initially had reservations because of the reviews stating that people were getting sick. We did not get sick and we were there for two weeks. We also used hand sanitizer before our meals. The food was average but you could always find something good to eat. People need to remember that...

You definitely have to go there for your vacation- to enjoy the most special place from this island. If you will do I'm pretty sure you won't regret.

Unfortunately this vacation started out on a negative note and remained progressive. I specifically booked a direct flight through Sunwing; yet we did a stopover in Puerto Plata and reboarded to Samana. After an hour and a half bus ride, that we were advised would be 20 minutes, we arrived at Grand Paradise Samana; hours past our expected arrival time....
