Fully satisfied, lovely private beach. Loved the quiet, friendly, nice modern rooms, the food was very good and I felt at home not crowded at all, reasonable price. I would stY again and recommend to friends. Low key Italian owner was pleasant and no one bothers you there and i had no problems.

This was booked for us by a travel agent. The photos bore no resemblance to what we found. The agent telephoned to see how far from Samana centre the hotel was and was told 10 minutes. Yes if you have a jet but in reality it was nearer 30 minutes in a local taxi. Reception was deserted when we arrived...

My husband and i were pleasantly surprised by the value of this small property. It is all-inclusive, but not at the level of an international chain. In fact, we enjoyed the local flavor and the staff were extremely friendly and made us feel at home. Rooms are of various sizes and layouts and we had a sense that a refurbishment...

Well, I stayed here for a work trip last week. We were going to travel to Samana and its vicinities so it was somewhat convenient. Keep in mind that this hotel is on the way to Las Galeras so if you plan to go to Samana, you'll need a ride. Rooms are clean, and spacious. Beds are a little too...

This is the worst "resort" that you can ever go to. The things that they say they offer are not true. I went to this place December 25 of 2012, this was terrible starting from the pool, entertainment, bar, restaurant, rooms. The bar is terrible they do not have the right equipment to make drinks, it was so terrible that...

A little resort with great prices and modest facilities. Two pools and hot tubs also access to the beach and night life. Specially important due to the location.

I just came back from a trip to La Tambora and must say the hotel was great and the service was even better. Since there weren't a lot of guests, we had the grounds pretty much at our disposal. The staff were extremely attentive to our needs and made sure we were well taken care of. There are a few...

I stayed at this hotel during a tour with Motocaribe, a motorcycle touring company (www.motocaribe.com). The hotel and grounds are gorgeous. The room I had came equipped with a kitchenette, which was stocked with bottled water constantly. The beach is private and delicious. Some nice waves for body surfing, and there is also a pool. The grounds are absolutely delicious,...
