How far is the Melia from the airport? About half an hour? From that, add on another 90 minutes to get to Bayahibe where the boats for Saona depart. From there, it's about 30 minutes by speedboat or just over an hour by catamaran to the Island.

Don't be deterred by the travel. Saona Island is so worth the trip, that all the forms of transit to get there are just part of the fun. You will likely get to make a stop along the way to buy vanilla and rum, and there's the basilica in Higuey which is interesting as well. You will get to see some of the Dominican countryside and experience a bit of the southeast tip of the country.

I have pics of my two trips to Saona posted at community.webshots.com/album/550135582VbyNRT and community.webshots.com/album/489092643CrzWYX
