“Wow!”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

We just returned from our 5 night stay at Sublime Samana and ever since then I have been missing it. Stunning beach, amazing property and the ever so kind staff and general manager. We were blown away with the grounds and how immaculately they are well kept. The people here work so hard to make you pleased and they love their job. Not once I have seen a grumpy face.The locals will tell you that the beach in Coson area is the most beautiful one and its actually where the Hotel is located. I think this was the most incredible beach I have seen with miles of palm trees and blue water. You couldn't imagine the colors at the sunset!
Also I should mention that the food was beyond my expectations. We had long hours of breakfast every morning enjoying the every minute. We also had a few visitors at the hotel who were actually staying at different places in Las Terrenas and they were all amazed telling us this place is paradise. By the way make sure you rent a casita because you will not believe it!

The locals are very nice, helpful and happy. The location is gorgeous & remote. The ceviche delicious, most of the food very tasty, and I had the best pina colada ever at a nearby local surf spot a 15 minute beach walk away. The grounds of the hotel are gorgeous, as are the pools and the villas. Unfortunately we only had 1 good shower in the 3 bedroom villa, but no other complaints. Highly recommend their massage on the beach; the sound of the waves along with the breeze flowing over your body while being massaged is just awesome! The prices were very reasonable for everything. Only thing lacking were certain amenities such as a hotel store for supplies and some beach toys like boogie boards. We also received wonderful service and a very special private birthday dinner on the beach.

My husband and I stayed in a 1 bdrm for 5 nights...we wish we had stayed longer! The resort rooms are very clean and the grounds are beautiful with lush green plants everywhere. The best part was the beach of course. With hundreds of palm trees as far as you can see and beautiful blue water. The resort is so secluded that there were at most maybe 5-10 people on the beach with us each day. There are also some great little places to eat lunch within walking distance down the beach. The staff were friendly and the man at the front desk was very helpful. Our only complaints were that the restaurant that serves dinner has the same menu every day and is a bit overpriced, a taxi to town is $50 rt, and the maids didn't always stock our rooms with the complimentary drinks...nothing that would keep us from coming back. Definitely visit Las Terrenas! There are some great restaurants there...not much shopping though. We loved our stay at the Sublime Samana and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet getaway to the beach! Oh and watch out for the no-see-ums...my husband got eaten up!

We thank you very much for having us chosen as your vacation destination and even more for taking your time to share your thoughts hereby. We certainly have one of the best beaches of Dominican Republic and the Caribbean itself and we are glad you enjoyed them. In reference to the dinner menu of our restaurant, we regret it was not up to your expectations and from this right moment we will look at the variety and prices to make it worth of a Sublime experience.

Your opinionabout the cost of the transfer is very important for us and we are trying to negotiate with the central taxi in order to offer better prices to our guest.

We stayed in a one bedroom suite for eight nights. Everything about this property is well executed. Firstly, it is very easy on the eyes - luxurious without being over the top, and beautifully landscaped. The staff is professional but everyone had a good sense of humor and went out of their way to make sure our needs were met. The setting is spectacular. Miles of uncrowded and pristine beach to walk either to the west or to the east. The beach immediately in front of the resort had quite a bit of surf, but there are good swimming beaches in either direction from the resort. Every meal was excellent. Our massages were also very good, done in the spa cabana located beach-side. There is nothing like a massage while listening to the surf crash. The only potential downside is the resort is a bit of a ways out of Las Terrenas, which makes for an expensive cab ride if you haven't rented a car. But truthfully, one evening in Las Terrenas was enough for us. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: None of the rooms have a sea view. We enjoyed our room on the west side of the crescent because we...

This resort was an unexpected pleasure. The service was impeccable, the rooms were clean, stylish and serene. The grounds were exquisite. If you are looking for an escape from the ubiquitous "all inclusive" resorts of the Dominican Republic, and prefer the elegance and serenity of a full service resort that pampers and offers the right amenities for adults, this is the place. Beach walks along really gorgeous shoreline is a treat. My husband and I enjoyed the food, and as New Yorkers, we have high expectations. Christian, the chef has a good formula as well as a winning personality. From the reception crew; Karina, Carlo, Jasmine & Harold to the restaurant people Aurelio,Alberto, Leonardo, Miladi , Ariel and others that are truly worthy of recognition - thank you! You made our 21st wedding anniversary truly special and we look forward to seeing you all again as we will be back many, many times in the future. Special greetings to Bruno, the general manager. It's clear that he cares deeply about this property! Plus, I had the greatest massage of my life with Allesandra! World class!

This is really a Super de Luxe Beach Hotel. With guaranteed high service level in all departments. From the room facilities, the breakfast till the arrival and check-out. All service is correct and friendly. We had a Casita, it's a modern house with all facilities like two Master bedrooms and three bathrooms (one with big Jacuzzi). Outside we had another big Jacuzzi and a amazing lounge terrace on the pool. Every morning we were very welcome at the 'a la carte' Breakfast with very friendly service, special thanks to Ramon. In the afternoon it was a pleasure to have aperitif and dinner in the Beach Restaurant where we like to thank the whole friendly team and specially Cesar who make us happy day after day with his well understanding service and smile. Everything is possible in this Hotel and they never say 'No'. For sure we come back here!

Room Tip: Take a Casita it's amazing!

My husband and I stayed 6 nights at the Sublime Samana in March. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are eager to return. Our casita was well appointed and comfortable. The beach is fantastic. Food is very good. The main attribute this hotel has to offer is its staff, they could not have been more genuinely helpful and pleasant!
