Beautiful day
Feb 2021 • Couples
Great experience. The staff was on time and attentive. We enjoyed the island! Beautiful beach. Massages, chairs, crystal clear water. The only problem that we encountered is the vendors that like to sell when you get on and of the bus. Many of them were extremely pushy and rude. Of course this has nothing to do with the company that runs the tour. They are excellent.

This is a must do excursion. They were in time picking us up, the bus was big enough to allow for social distance and the driver and staff were great. The food in the island was ok. We had the vip upgrade. The beach is spectacular and the catamaran was really fun. Will definitely recommend!

Disappointing
Dec 2020
The music on the catamaran was too loud and just awful. Food on the island was poor and drinks didn’t even have ice and too few options. The entire time on the island someone is trying to sell you something. The only positive was the beach and water are beautiful, but I would do a private tour instead. I would not recommend this tour.

Do not book!
Terrible service, booked on Viator. Waited to hear the pick up time the day before and nothing came. I emailed and texted and only around 6:45pm did they confirm the trip and the pick up time of 7:30am. The following morning after making arrangements 06:10 that morning they confirmed the trip would be cancelled and rebooked for the following day but we already had plans. I asked to be booked onto the Thursday but I received no answer. I then asked for a refund but they advised I can only receive 50 percent refund, even though they cancelled!!! I had to phone Viator from my UK phone costing me money to question why they’re not giving me a full refund! Just avoid!!

This all day excursion was well worth it. Me & my fiancee loved it. The speed boat going out was awesome. The food was delicious and the drinks hit the spot. The catamaran going back was great. Drinks dancing and music made this excursion worth every dime would definitely do it again

Super island, mwah trip
Feb 2020
Via the TUI-app we booked the speedboat/catamaran day trip to Saona Island. Very early rise ending up waiting in the bus at a parking lot near Punta Cana for at least half an hour to switch busses. Heavy rain on the way to the boats (be prepared, weather conditions can change rapidly). With the packed speedboat loaded with around 30 tourists (feeling like walking wallets), we were instructed to do some snorkelling just outside the harbour ("best place in DR"). Nothing to see here off course, if you have anchors of several boats smash the coral daily. Unfriendly boat staff serving coca cola with rum and beer at 09:00 hours in the morning. Some small snacks were served (cheese, undefined meat, crackers, pineapple and a piece of bread). Halfway we stopped at the "natural swimming pool". Being just a shallow area in the middle of the sea where you can stand up. Okay, the colour of the water is truly beautiful, but why stop in the middle of the sea and share yet another round of rum and cola (which we refused)? The good thing of this particular is that TUI apparently may use a private part of the Island, so the 2,5 hours we had on the Island including "free" lunch and drinks were very nice and relaxing, No vendors or bees here. Postcard pictures taken. Return by catamaran, hoisting the sails for no particular reason. In fact you are "sailing" back by motor. Disappointing. People who started their day with rum and coca cola paid there price here. Others did some dancing on deck with meringue music. Very good atmosphere (new crew!). After refusing buying a rum bottle with our picture glued to it for $$ (taken earlier), we returned to our resorts by bus (including switch). The trip made me feel ambivalent. Saona Island should not be missed (the quiet part that is), but the trip itself with its ridiculous snorkelling and natural swimming pool element, could be left out. For $$$ a person one may expect more quality. A private tour is advised.

Good all-round trip you may want to take some snacks as no snacks offered
Good all-round trip however you want to take some drinks and snacks as no snacks offered on trip and limited refreshment..... On the catermaran the cheapest tastes cola I have ever had.
Photos taken by the team but for transfer to your phone @2$ each and we had 90 photos silly price so be practical..... Negotiate what you're prepared to pay! Offered 20 and was accepted towards the end of this trip!

Not worth the 5 hour ride
You’ll see the same white sand beach you have at your resort but without the nice food...
12 hour trip back and forth and they never tell you that you can only be at the island for two hours
