We arrived at the La Samana resort after our wedding and a short stay on St. John USVI. From the moment we entered the lovely grounds until the morning we left the, experience was perfect. The hotel staff could not have been more welcoming or more professional. The suite was very comfortable, clean and well appointed and the beach, right...

We made our first visit to La Samanna and stayed 4 nights. Since it was low season we were able to get a discounted rate on a suite with a private rooftop plunge pool and we really enjoyed that. The resort itself is a gorgeous tropical setting with beautiful gardens and a spectacular view of Baie Longue and the Caribbean....

From check in to check out, we were on property for 7 days and it was absolutely fantastic. We were surprised to see the prices for food and drink ($14 for a mixed drink) but found that rather typical anywhere we went on the island. We had planned to venture out several of the 7 days but ended up staying...

We stayed for 6 nights at La Samanna in April 2010. La Samanna is a hard to define hotel: it has Four Seasons' prices but the quality of the main building and rooms do not match its high prices. Service is uneven: sometimes is 5 star service (specially at the beach and concierge desk) and sometimes is a 0 star...

This hotel is a real treat! Saint Maarten is very spread out so, this resort is great because it is 10Min from the airport and has a great restaurant. I'd highly recommend if you have a short trip..or stop over on St Maarten. The service was amazing. We felt like the only people in the resort. The cottage like suite...

The beach may be 5star but the hotel and service is more like 3 star. My husband and I were extremely disappointed with the service and cleanliness of this property. At 5 Star prices we expected the service to be top notch and our room to be somewhat updated. Staff was is no rush to assist us when waiting to...

The only place I've been that rivals La Samanna is the Four Season's Hualalai in Kona, Hawaii. An amazing, luxurious, secluded resort set on a vast private beach with soft sand and turquoise waters. The spa is fabulous and all of the other amenities made it difficult to want to leave, in fact, we decided to forego our trip to...
