Great Stay

522valc on Jul 28, 2021

Stayed here for 6 nights with a party of 4. Rooms are spacious and clean. We had a family suite, a one bedroom suite with a big double bed and with two single sofa beds in the living area. You get complementary towels and robes to use at the pool and spa and a free pair of flip flops. There’s a small kitchen you can use with plates and cutlery. Breakfast is delicious and more than sufficient Staff is really friendly. This is a true family resort. Activities for the little ones all day long and in the evening with a football game. Staff is helpful and very friendly. The hotel is situated higher up in the mountains which makes it really tranquille. We had a very nice and relaxing stay here! Will definitely book again!

Las Terrenas, Samana, RD

JC0579 (New York City, New York) on Jul 14, 2021

Resort is perfectly situated in Las Terrenas. The resort itself is great in size with one main pool near buffet, snack bar, sports bar and beach. Jorge the pool bartender was the best! Nathy at the buffet was awesome Only disappointment was the buffet seemed overwhelmed with guests at every meal time. Seems like there were no limited restrictions to accommodate guests. Also the 4th of July BBQ was not a great idea. But over all we enjoyed our time at El Portillo.
