After years of hearing my father (who passed away in 2007) telling me that La Samanna is the place to be, we decided to go to celebrate our engagement and my birthday in Februrary. Wow! He sure was right! From the moment we walked in the door to our beautiful pool/beach front room, we immediately knew that 5 days would...

Truly a wonderful resort right in front of the bean, extremely kind staff always ready to accommodate any request. Rooms are super chic, all white and very spacious, beds are extremely comfortable and bathrooms are super large and extra comfortable. They change towels and bed linen so often...it's extremely clean and attention to every single detail. We felt like we...

This was a very nice resort on a very pretty beach. We had the deluxe ocean view room, and it had a very comfortable bed and nice bathroom. The room was a lot smaller than I expected, and the terrace was located right in front of the pool. We never use it because it was not private at all. The...

My husband and I spend 5 amazing days at this incredibly beautiful resort last week for a special Birthday celebration. I chose this resort for its beauty, low architectural buildings that blended into the background, (not the villas on the cliff obviously), lush landscaping, beautiful grounds and the fact that the beach looked like the best on the island. I...

We were at La Samanna over school break with our 13 year old twins and 15 year old. This is a great place. Let's start with breakfast. Large selection of sliced fresh fruit (pineapple, kiwi, orange, grapefruit, cantaloupe, honeydew). Cereal. Pastries. Full grill with pancakes, French toast, waffles, and omeletes all cooked to order. Beach is amazing. We had a...

Beautiful property. The beach is even better than Grace Bay despite Trip Advisor's recent ranking. Service is not on par with the Ritz or Four Season's but it is still decent. The gym is very small for a resort. The room was in good shape despite it's rather small size

We are currently staying at La Samanna and find the resort and beach beautiful. However, the only problem we are having is with the service.
