Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is my favorite place ever! A wonderful host, Freddy made our stay easier by making the check-in process simple and informed us about the property's amenities (restaurant, pool, and beach). He also showed great concern for my family and me. The personnel provided excellent service and the accommodation and view were all fantastic! Without a doubt, I would return without any questions.

This was our first time in Samaná and I can’t say enough good things about it. The staff was friendly, the pools were nice, the food was good and we really enjoyed the beach. During our last night, We had an issue at the apartment and Freddy, one of the managers, was really helpful moving us to another unit and understanding the problem we encountered. Overall a really nice experience! Highly recommended!

Vista Mare is a great alternative to all inclusives. We rented a 1 bedroom condo that was great for my husband and myself. The area is beautiful, on a cliff side overlooking Samana Bay. If you are there between January and March you are sure to Humpback Whales from every viewpoint. This resort is beautiful and safe. Although the condo resort doesn't have food included, there is a restaurant that's open from morning to night with an outstanding view. The servers, including Hansel, are kind, and courteous, even with a bit of a language barrier. Lots of laughs were had by all. (a vehicle is recommended)

WHALES! We returned to this resort after a marvelous 1st experience in March 2023. This year, as we sat on our terrace, lounged at the two luxurious swimming pools and even at the resort's restaurant, we watched mother Humpback whales and their one month old calves frolicking in the Samana Bay Whale Sanctuary, the third largest in the world. The view from the apt. is simply breathtaking whether it's of the full Bay from the mountain-top buildings or closer to the seashore by the beach front apartments. All apartments are equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay including laundry equipment. We arranged to have a local cook come to prepare a full meal with local produce and freshly caught fish. We enjoyed her homemade coconut rice & peas, tossed green salad, fried plantains and deliciously crispy fried fish followed by a most velvety smooth vanilla custard a.k.a. "flan". Total cost for both of us to eat for at least two nights: $60 (US). The stay, available through Airbnb and other travel search engines was also incredibly reasonably priced. They have accommodations for couples and families with condominiums for up to 8 guests with 2 & 3 bedrooms. We decided to make it an annual tradition! We will return to Xeliter Vista Mare to enjoy the sunsets, the view of Samana Bay, the Humpback Whales, and, the most wonderful local dishes. Hasta el 2025!

This hotel has the most beautiful view I have ever seen! The layout of the main building where they have a lovely, fairly priced restaurant, excellent attentive servers and two gorgeous infinity pools overlooking the ocean. Candido and Hansel were excellent at the restaurant. The pool is well equipped with comfortable loungers and umbrellas. The pool was always clean, but the stairs are a bit slippery. Our condo was down the hill (if you don’t like to hike request a condo at the top of the hill). There are two beaches within a minute walk, we didn’t visit them and they are not shown in the advertisement for the hotel. But appear nice from above but are a bit wavy. The condo itself is just like in the pictures. Very large living room, kitchen, dining room and balcony. Gorgeous morning sunrises to be see. Very clean, only a few minor updates are needed. But excellent otherwise. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back.

The condo was great with an unbelivable ocean views. The hotel has two crystal clear swimming pools, the restaurant has a small menu, reasonable price and friendly staff. The front desk agents are very helpful and friendly. We had a great time. We will definitely be back. Noemi

Very pleasant! Xeliter Vista Mare is an absolute gem nestled along the picturesque coastline. Its pristine beauty, crystal-clear waters, and golden sands make it an idyllic destination for beach lovers seeking tranquility and relaxation. Having recently visited this coastal haven, I can confidently say that Vista Mare lives up to its name and offers an enchanting experience. As you approach the beach, you are greeted by the soothing sound of gentle waves crashing against the shore. The air is filled with a refreshing saltwater breeze, carrying hints of marine life and distant tropical blooms. The beach stretches out in a gentle curve, flanked by lush greenery and swaying palm trees, providing ample shade for those seeking respite from the sun. The sands of Vista Mare are velvety soft and inviting, perfect for leisurely strolls or simply sinking your toes in as you relax under the warm sun. The beach is meticulously maintained, with regular cleanups ensuring a pristine environment for visitors to enjoy. The absence of litter and debris adds to the overall charm and tranquility. The highlight of this beach, without a doubt, is the water. The turquoise hues beckon you to take a dip and immerse yourself in its clear depths. The calm waves make it an excellent spot for swimming and snorkeling, allowing you to discover a vibrant underwater world teeming with colorful fish and coral formations. Vista Mare offers ample amenities to enhance your beach experience. Comfortable beach chairs and umbrellas are available , allowing you to lounge in style while savoring the beautiful surroundings. The beachside café serves up a delightful array of refreshments and delectable snacks, ensuring you stay energized throughout the day. One aspect that truly sets Vista Mare Beach apart is its uncrowded nature. The beach's serene atmosphere and relatively low visitor volume create a sense of exclusivity and privacy, making it an ideal destination for those seeking a peaceful retreat. Whether you're looking to spend quality time with loved ones, engage in water activities, or simply unwind in solitude, xeliter Vista Mare caters to all. In conclusion, Paradise Cove Beach captivates with its natural beauty, inviting waters, and tranquil ambiance. It offers an escape from the bustling world, allowing you to embrace serenity and immerse yourself in the wonders of nature. A visit to this beach is sure to rejuvenate your senses and leave you with cherished memories.
