    Quiet romantic resort

    This is a great 18+ resort for couples. My girlfriend and I had an excellent time. The hotel was not busy. The staff and management were all very friendly (moreso than any other resort I've ever visited). I want to give a shout out to the bartender Ramon at the pool bar, the entertainer Nerifri, Jose at the lunch restaurant and little Ramon at the buffet / evening restaurant who all made our trip so enjoyable. The resort is small, private, safe, quiet, clean and beautiful. We had a junior suite with a king size bed and balcony that overlooked the beach. We slept to the sound of the waves crashing the beach. For the partygoers, keep in mind, there is no disco or casino and everything pretty much shuts down at 11pm. Each night there is some entertainment at 9:30pm poolside (band, karaoke, dancers, etc.). At 6pm there were also some great musical performances at the terrace. During the day the entertainers provide water aerobics at the pool and other exercises / activities. We mostly hung out around the pool or beach during the day. It was hot and sunny every day! Weather was awesome. Pack some immodium. I forgot to bring it. Fortunately, Michael at Reception had the pharmacy deliver it to the hotel for me. It only took 25 minutes and cost 14 dollars US. I spoke to 2 other Canadians who also became ill from something they consumed at the resort. I was fine after taking the Immodium. I appreciate the follow up from hotel management to ensure I was in good health.

    Great resort with gorgeous views

    We stayed here for 5 nights in June 2019. This is off season for Samana so it was very quiet at the resort which was exactly what we were looking for. The food was delicious and the staff was friendly and helpful. They all spoke English, at least enough to do their job. Our room was clean and comfortable and every night our butler put aromatherapy in our room which I loved. The bed was comfortable and they have a pillow menu if you don't like the ones in the room. The resort is 2 hours away from the airport but it is so worth it for the views and quiet atmosphere. We took the shuttle arranged and paid for by the resort and it was great. If you are looking for an adult only, all inclusive resort that is relaxing and not a big party scene, this resort is perfect. I would love to go back someday in Jan to Mar so I can watch the whales from my balcony.

    We stayed in this hotel for 12 nights in March. I have to say that the hotel is far from bad but still has a lot room for improvements. Pros: - cleanliness of the whole area (inside and outside) - nice people - relaxing environments and no wild parties Cons: - the hotel was overbooked, and people were (room) downgraded instead of upgraded --> quoting the head receptionist manager - the food is not bad but doesn't vary at all - no local/tropical fruits, just the regular ones (e.g. banana, orange, etc) - the food quality is good, but they don't know how to prepare it - we reported 3x!!! that there were bugs in the tray full of cauliflower, but they didn't replace it at all - a lot of staff don't understand BASIC English which is quite strange for a 5* hotel, and therefore the word "MILK" was sometimes not understood at all - really small area for swimming and if you want to swim a little more outside of the "border markings", the lifeguard is immediately whistling - too less sun loungers - we saw almost each day that all the loungers were occupied but there were a lot of people still without them - for 2 days, one area (where the sun loungers were), was closed due to a wedding and a lot of people complained that they have nowhere to go - everything can be heard out and in of the room, so sometimes it felt as if people were marching through our room

    We spent a week in this hotel. Second time. Excellent resort, great beach, clear crystal sea, no waves, no sea weeds. Food was amazing, tasty, lots of selections. Room was great (deluxe), view from the room and from the buffet - breathtaking! Service was great - Jose, Wandy, Dileni, Antonia, all service people, reception, all staff in this hotel were so good and nice, I am so thankful to all of them. Beach towels - no problem - any time. Room was cleaned, fresh bath towels daily - good size and very clean. It is a great relaxing resort for couples or singles, who want some quiet time and do not need disco or so. Thanks, Bahia! We got a great week! Hope to be back next year.
