Is La Samana within walking distance of Grand Case restaurants?
no, not at all . it is probably at least 5 miles away
What is the approximate cab fare to GC and if you had to choose a property on the French side would you choose La Samana?
La Samana is a nice property.
I also like Hotel L'Esplanade in Grand case as well as Grand Case Beach Club
La Samana is on the french,Dutch border by the airport. A good 45 mins. Drive to orient bay. If you want to stay o french side conpared to hotel would be Radisson Hotel. Also look at rental propery on orient bay village area. Great view.
I found that taxis do not abide but suggested rates. Ask when you get in the cab what the fare will be and then have that exact amount ready.
Rent a car! The island is so easy to navigate! There are a ton of great places to stay on both the French and the Dutch side, one of our favorites is the Grand Case Beach Club! Oh, and everywhere you go Never leave anything in your car. We also always leave our car unlocked, this way even if a theif does want to check it out there is no damage done to any of the locks and with nothing inside there is no problem!
