was a great place including food, drinks, service and of course weather. look for leondro marte at service desk, good person, anna in main diner and charlie in entertainment. bingo everyday at 5pm, lots of fun. snorkling over ship wreck and seeing tons of fish swimming by was awesome. the beach they took us to snorkling was unreal, beautiful. my trip was great and would go back there again for sure.

We went in December, travelled with other friends for a total of 4. We had a blast, great staff, beautiful location and the food was great. Our room overlooked the ocean, bay & cliffside. The drive from the airport was about an hour but great bus ride with a very personable host. We also go to Punta Cana Riu's but this is a quieter location and very serene. Will definately be back...

Stayed there for three nights. Had an excellent room with great view. Food was ok, just ok, nothing special. Employees are pleasant,nice and try to do their best. But do not expect anything spactacular, especially from the evening program/entertainment

Room Tip: Try to get the corner rooms wih a view to the baya

The animators in the hotel were a pleasure to be with... Full of activities & kept those of us active people on vacation. I would never forget Danny boy, such a comedian and great personality!! Hope to visit Samana again soon. Doris

Just back from the Gran Bahia Principe Samana after a one week stay and I have to say loved every minute , the location is stunning loooking over the bay and to Bacardi Island , the hotel is ideal for couples and if you want a week to just relax and unwind this the place , the food is fine at all meal times plentey of choice at breakfast ,lunch and dinner all in the buffet , the three a la carte are good ,and if you are still hungary the all night buffet starts at 11pm till 7am next to the disco , at night just one thing to note the local town is not the place to go so you are confined to the hotel and this would be a bit boring if staying for two weeks , but the staff are brilliant and make your stay special , go and walk the bridge to noware it is safe and the beach is brill and the staff have games on all morning the locals do use the beach but do not get in face just a polite no thanks and they leave you alone and never ask you again , the main pool area is also great again games on all day , if you want quite go down to the jacuzzi pool and you get pool and sea togeather with a small jetty walk and you can swim in the sea . the bedrooms are great and cleaned every day and all in all a great hotel which is made more special by the staff perfect
