Positive Reviews

Extremely well designed

This place looks like something right out of a catalogue of the world's nicest hotels. It's simply stunning, and the majority of guests that stay here are very impressed by the décor and the views. It's expensive but seemingly worth the money.

Lovely meals

There are three places to eat on-site, and all are said to have superb food. There are many items on the menus, and you'll find that even kids are catered too here. The Italian restaurant comes in for particularly high praise with guests loving the dishes on offer.

Superb amenities

The hotel has tennis courts and a games room that will keep the kids busy while adults can relax in the infinity pools. There is even a boat that can bring you to the nearest beach, but you will have to pay for it.

Negative Reviews

Not the best service in town

This hotel looks the part and is priced in the luxury bracket, but it needs to up its game regarding service. The staff are nice, but the service overall is much less than you expect. Sometimes food is slow arriving which can be a little frustrating.

A little inconvenient

The hotel has plenty of amenities, but if you want to explore Samana, then you must take a taxi or pay the very expensive hotel shuttle rates. You can't walk as it's just too far and there's no easy access to a beach at all.
