We were visiting Samana by cruise ship and decided to take the chance and book this beach day. We were told that we would be transported from the port by boat to the resort. On arrival there were lots of taxis and tours trying to take us to the resort. We waited ten minutes and Gio turned up and explained that as it was only us that booked that day that we would be going by bus.
Gio came with us and the bus turned down a dirt track, I began to wonder where we were going. It lead to a beautiful cove, spotlessly clean and welcoming. We went into the office to pay it was $16 for the transport to and from the port, our loungers and parasol and two drinks. We were taken down to the beach and Jonny the barman arrived carrying a basket of fresh white rolled up towels adornded with sprigs of fresh flowers. (lovely touches) Gio and Jonny told us if we needed anything to just shout! Some of my family members had the club sandwich and fries which was very good and reasonably priced. Plus large measures of Rum!!!
We spent the day relaxing and enjoying the music and chilled out atmosphere. Great clean bathrooms and showers. A family member also had a massage on the beach from a lovely friendly lady.
Perhaps I shouldn't be putting this review here because it's a hidden gem for anyone visiting Samana. I wouldn't hesitate to return to this lovely establishment. Thank you Gio and Jonny hope to see you again sometime!

We booked a Beach Day (11a.m. - 3 p.m.) with Lunch here when our cruise ship visited on Nov. 22. Our party consisted of my husband, daughters, sons-in-law and granddaughter (toddler). The booking was accomplished easily on the internet and we received a confirmation by e-mail. We arrived at the pier early (tendered), but were accomodated as we waited for transportation (by truck, not boat). Everyone was very welcoming and the areas were shown to us (beach, restaurant, showers, bar, etc.). Everything was as good or better as pictured in the website and very clean. There were only a few others there besides ourselves. The beach was clean and only slightly rocky--we soon found the sweet spot of the beach and spent all but lunch time in the water or on the sand! It was picturesque with lots of trees and plants and lawn. We had lunch at the restaurant (no buffet due to few folks), but we were allotted 3 appetizers, 6 entrees and 3 desserts for our party of six--as well as the 12 drink tickets. The food was wonderful and plentiful (except for chicken tenders--not wonderful)! We especially enjoyed the calimari, eggplant roll-ups, yucca fries and fish (whole) Samana style. The sandwiches were good also. I highly recommend this to cruisers who wish a pleasant day with water, sand, and food, and if we should return to Samana, we would almost surely rebook this day. We saw that some people had massages and hair braiding, but we did not inquire since that was not of interest to us. Our transport back to the ship was on a smaller truck, but was timely, leaving as soon as we had changed at about 3 p.m. Giovanni met us and stayed in the area (very good English), but we would have probably been able to communicate effectively, since everyone spoke enough English. Very relaxing day -- pleasant place, good food, and a great day for all of us!

Gio met us at the pier escorted us to the boat, a little small but okay for us. When we got there . It was a small getaway. Perfect for what we wanted, not lots of crowds. The bartender was very nice and answered all questions. Bar right on the beach. Lunch was also included local fare, delicious!! My daughter had her hair braided, great price, they also offered massages. The water was beautiful, we all had a great day. Everyone was very attentive. Even a little gift shop, my husband bartered and got some great stuff. No problem about getting back to the ship. We would definately recommend this place and go again of we visited Samana., Great price
