The rooms are as beautiful in real life as they are in the website pictures. The location on Avenida Jimi Hendrix is a short walk to La Playita and an even shorter walk to restaurants and bars in the main tourist part of Las Galeras. If you don't feel like walking, the beach on site is convenient for a swim...

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time of sharing your opinion with us! We feel proud to read that we have provided you an absolutely amazing time.

We experienced a great service: sending a car to samana only to bring the creditcard that I forgot to take with me after checking out. We could have made it to the ferry to sabana de la mar on time.
