My husband and I stayed at this hotel for three nights before joining a wedding party at an all inclusive resort in Samana. We have never stayed at a bed and breakfast resort before and, honestly, it took us a few nights to get used to the lack of anonymity that is inherent in such a small and exclusive hotel. However, once we did, we were able to truly appreciate and enjoy the attention and detail that the owners and staff take in everything they do. The reviews on trip advisor are absolutely accurate and I will not repeat the multitude of positive comments previously stated. However, I was REALLY able to appreciate the great food and attention to guests needs after staying in an all inclusive resort after the Peninsula House. I wish that we had been able to do the reverse where the all inclusive resort came first and then the Peninsula House!. I can only imagine how much more we would have enjoyed everything, including the PEACE AND QUIET!!!!. I am not sure that I could stay at the Peninsula House for an extended period, but it is a beautiful accent to a trip that you are already taking to the Dominican.
Further, because we could not fly directly into the airport in Samana (our time restrictions) we flew into Punta Cana and had to take a small plane for about an hour to Samana. This was all arranged (and taxi trips throughout) by Sophie at the Peninsula house in advance of our arrival. She also helped us arrange a motor bike rental so we could travel around a little during our stay. Finally, after having been at the wedding resort and on the way back to catch my small plane to Punta Cana, it became clear to me that there may be a mix up with the location of the small aircraft. Sitting at a small deserted airport at 8am by myself (my husband left 2 days earlier), with no english speaking people around and very little time for error, I called the Peninsula House for help. Thankfully, one of the owners answered and immediately called the airline and confirmed (in spanish) the airport that I was waiting at. When the pilot arrived, he explained that he had been waiting at the other airport. Without the assistance of the Peninsula House, I would never have made my flight from Punta Cana home that day. And that is the beauty of the Peninsula House, you absolutely feel that they are able and willing to help, no matter what the scenario is. When you are in a foreign country, travelling alone,and don't speak the language, you realize just how important it is to have people to count on and the Peninsula house delivered.
