My wife and I had an absolute blast at the Bannister Hotel. We enjoyed the several bars and restaurants the hotel had to offer. We have stayed in other hotels near Samana, and this one is by far the best.
Service was top notch, the lobby and rooms were extremely nice. I think you are getting a luxury hotel for something less than luxury prices when you stay here.
You do have to hire a taxi to take you to a beach, but Playa Rincon is relatively close, and I might be one of the best beaches in the world. There is a company inside the hotel lobby does a great job helping set up any excursions, etc. Ask them to request Cecilio as a driver, he grew up close to Playa Rincon and seems to know everyone.
