Sunset on the marina was beautiful. We had breakfast by the pool, and the food was great. The mini-market is not well stocked but has some basic essentials. There is free,...

Dear guest: Thank you kindly for your observations, in fact, being secluded is one of our stronger features. for those who want to be away, but not really too far, Samana, downtown, is 5 minutes from the hotel, that way we offer solitude, and those who want more action can have it within five minute ride. we apologize for the...

Loved hotel, super clean and cozy. I'm giving 4 stars because when I called over the phone the staff didn't properly answer my questions, which resulted on misunderstanding afterwards. Everything else was great!

Samana is beautiful enough in itself, but this hotel is a prime jewel. Excellent conditions, big rooms, decent price, wonderful food (in 3 separate restaurants), great service, and a gorgeous Marina. It's my place to stay during my future business and family trips to Samana.
