This is a great resort with an excellent beach. We stayed here for 2 weeks and enjoyed it a lot. The food at the buffets was so good, many options, and different themes. Also tried the a la carte restaurants and they were great too, but we liked the buffet more. Also the breakfast buffet was very complete, with even Bloody Mary and Mimosa, many kind of cheese and tons more.
The rooms have nice balcony where you can sit and enjoy the quietness and view. The room was cleaned well everyday and minibar with beer and sodas restocked.
Choices of cocktails at the bars was very good. We loved the Mojito's at the beach bar the best, made to perfection by a cheery man named Eucidio. He made our holiday extra fun.
There was always nice spots on the beach to relax, we did the free kayaking a few times which was very nice.
Only thing is the bars close at 11 and thats a bit early in evening for us. You can go to the town of las terrenas which is not very far, there are more bars open later at night and very much fun. We rented a car at the hotel for a fair price and had fun exploring more of the island.
We will go back to Samana for sure, it is so beautiful and the people living there are very friendly.More
