Loved my stay at the Bannister Hotel&Yacht Club. Great services, amazing infinity pool and a beautiful location. The resort has 2 great restaurants. Cafe Del Mar had amazing sea food. The room was very spacious.

Beautiful room and excellent service during our one-day stay. The reception personnel is efficient and personable. The only drawback was the shower in the bathroom, the handheld one leaked and did not stay on its support.

Although this hotel´s luxury style is not usually what we look for, we were very impressed by the relaxed-vibe of the Bannister, especially having a toddler and a 6-month old. The staff was incredibly welcoming, accomodating and efficient, and all services and products defined attention to detail. Our welcome letter had my husband´s name, the housekeeper stopped by to make...

Best view of the yacht from the hotel room balcony. Unbeatable infinity pool over the sea, and delicious food at Cafe del Mar are the plus. Everything is perfect except the wifi connection and the room key that is not working most of the time. Definitely one of the best for a secluded vacation !

We had a great time here for 10 days. Our second visit to the Marina. The amenities are great and the atmosphere is so peaceful and beautiful. The staff is very attentive. Gavi, the marina manager, is a real asset. Perfect English and a charming personality. Our frequent waiter William Espino was also great. Hope to get back here again...

A true gem, good food and memorable environment! There're also some interesting activities in the area for both families and couples, both in Samana and Las Terrenas. The hotel spa is also well worth it!

i loved my stay at the Bannister hotel, the rooms are great, spectacular view and the staff is very welcoming. The food is really good and i loved all areas such as the lobby, dining area and Cafe. The water wasn't hot enough and wifi reception at the room wasn't great.
