Wedding Trip
REBECCA C.

We really didn't know what to expect, since this was our first trip to DR. I just knew we wanted a quiet, relaxing and enjoyable vacation and wedding. The resort and resort staff (including our wedding coordinator) far exceeded any expectations we had. The resort was absolutely beautiful and the grounds were impecably mantained. The resort staff was attentive and the service was exceptional. We are already looking at our calendars next year for a second trip :)

Villa

The Beach Villa is everything you would expect. Big, beautiful and very close to the beach, pool and food. The nicest room/villa we have ever stayed in to date. However, there didnt appear to be hot/warm water for the patio Jacuzzi? There was a bit of a language barrier but we were able to get by. Food was average but they make a good effort to change it up at dinner. Specialty restaurants were better. Entertainment was fair most of the time but it was the workers putting on some of the shows and I would give them an A for effort. If you are looking to just relax and sit by the pool or on the beach this is the perfect place. If you fly into any Airport other than Samana expect to have a 2-3 HOUR cab ride to the pier. The place was clean and the grounds well taken care of.

Paradise, perfect location and wonderful ambience

We arrived 3rd April 2018 for our 3-week honeymoon, travelling from Gatwick to Puerto Plata. We enjoyed the four-and-a-half hour transfer, viewing it as a free excursion of the island. The air-conditioned coach hugged the coastline for the better part of the journey so we saw many Caribbean beaches in their natural, undeveloped form. ‘Beautiful’ doesn’t do some of them justice. Keeping this review simple for the moment, we’re both extensively travelled, particularly around the luxury Caribbean resorts. I only mention this to put our review in context. The island is as close to Paradise as you can get. The hotel position and layout of the buildings within the grounds are very well considered with the mini carts saving any tired legs at the end a long day by the pools or beaches. The staff are fantastic. Management regularly ask if everything is okay and if they can do anything to make your stay better. We ate at one of the a la carte restaurants one evening and a manager spotted our camera and immediately offered to take pictures of us together. The food is fab. Really, it is. Something for every taste. I understand we all have different standards - one person’s view of medium-rare may differ to another’s, for example. But, we can’t fault this aspect of the hotel. Butler service isn’t just a ‘soundbite’ in a glossy brochure - ask, and your request is done. In fact, it’s usually done without your request. The gardens are immaculate; the views truly stunning. And the animation team give it their all, diplomatically leaving you in peace at the slightest nod, while trying to encourage those who enjoy joining in. That’s a balancing act not to be overlooked. And, in addition to all of this, the overall ambiance is wonderful. All guests are here for similar reasons - to relax and enjoy. We had a blessing at the beach gazebo and were really humbled by other guests heartfelt congratulations. One trio of couples even sent over a bottle of champagne at our evening celebration. Overall, a truly amazing experience so far.

Great hotel but not enough open spaces

They class their basic room as superior our first room was 24 /101was a basic room,small,no views,no coffee table on the balcony,only one dining chair to sit on in the room.definately not superior.we upgraded to a better room (cost me an extra £400 ),room 6 /102 this was a superior room,though i do not understand why hotels these days have no privacy in the bathrooms.a great window overlooking the room,if the cleaner or butler came in there was nowhere to hide if you are in the shower. We were the pool side of the island so we were unable to see the other side of the island,it would be nice if somehow garden areas could be opened up with seats to view the opposite side,it did not feel as if we were on an island,felt a bit confined. On the positive side The staff were great from the cleaners ,waiters,animation , to the managers and receptionist all were very helpful and very friendly. The food was out of this world,such a vast choice,each night there was a country theme, French,German,Mexican even English. The chef would cook your food as you would like it. The alcoholic drink selection was the best i have seen in an all inclusive,the only drinks you paid for was high end champagne etc. We used the Mediterraneo and Radizio ( brazilian) restaurants and they were great,however the gourmet restaurant Gourmet Don Pablo we were shown a table given the menu and a glass of champagne then ignored for 20 minutes with people finding it more important to lay tables then take our order,to their amazement we walked out,somebody was trying to explain to us an excuse,but i found that they were quite rude in this restaurant. We went to the main restaurant and had a great meal. The entertainment was very good both at night and during the day on the beach and pool. Would i go back? I doubt it, it is not golng to be adults only,the beach is quite small, ( though the public beach is great).but mainly the 4 hour drive from the airport after a 9 hour flight is very tiring.pity you can’t fly into Samana airport from uk.

Air Canada - Luxury Bahia Levantado - Just ok

Air Canada - avoid at all costs, go West Jet (didn’t seat us together). When you arrive at the airport, after you get your luggage, it goes through a scanner and there is a porter that takes your luggage because he gets to a t first (hate forced tipping). Getting there, the bus stopped to get beer 5 usd for a beer (seems steep) it’s a big bottle tho. Bus ride is an hour from the airport. Get to the boat launch and you wait to fill out a form and get your bracelet, then wait for the boat. The process took about an hour. After the quick boat ride, you get your room key in the lobby then they took you in a tram to your room. The luggage is delivered and the butler introduces you to the room and services about 10 min later. Very quick. There are waiters near the lobby bar outside but the better you tip, the more frequent they come, if at all. Everything closes at 11pm so if you want drinks, have it before. Unless you go to the beach party at the public beach, don’t know what’s there or if part of the hotel. There is 24 hr room service but not for alcohol, pillow selection and they scent your room if you ask. There is also a room romantic tub night where they set up the tub, flowers and candles with a bottle of champagne, first one is free. There is a Bahia app where you can book your restaurants and see the menu but to sign in it asks too many questions. The app doesn’t tell you restaurant times which would be useful. Free room wifi but on the balcony it’s weak. Mini fridge has three little bottles of alcohol, 2 beers and 5 bottles of Soda (pop) and 2 bottles of water, one big bottle on the dresser. Lots of lizards so get use to the littlue guys especially on your balcony. Also saw a rat outside the room. Ridizio-Brazilian Restaurant If you like medium rare and waiting this is for you. They make you wait a bit between meats but the meat tastes good. They come around to the tables with skewers of meat and cut you some. They give you rice and veggies to share but either you eat it by the beginning or it’s cold. Don Paublo Restaurant It’s a good experience. Best of all of them. Little apps throughout the experience and extras don’t want to ruin the experience but very good. Ordered a filet migon well done and they did not disappoint. Although the surf and turf did not come with lobster as advertised. Mediterranean Tried to make reservations, they said they would call. Never did. Porto Fino Restaurant (Italian) Just ok, apps were focaccia bread with a little buffalo cheese and I had the Lima beans that came with two pork ribs and mashed potatoes. I had the cod which was boiled and hubby had the tortellini with angus, not very good either of them. Main Restaurant by the lobby is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Each night is themed. Beach There are three different beach areas. One you can swim in, the other was rough the time we were there and the public beach. If you go further out in the swimmable one, there is good snorkelling just be careful as there are sea urchins in the rocky areas. There is a swimming area but there are areas of weeds, sea grass. Beach bar closes at 6pm so does the beach restaurant. The beach restaurant does a la carte in the morning and afternoons, didn’t try it. Lots are chairs if you go early in the morning, although there are those people that reserve a chair with a towel and are hardy there or show up hours later. This place is changing to kid friendly so I suspect a lot less chairs will be available, changes affect after May 2018. If you go to the beach late it’s hard to find chairs but someone seems to come around asking if you need one, and finds one for you. Don’t know how this will change with kids, unless they put a huge order in but I doubt it. Don’t think they are ready for the change. Sand is course, not soft like Cuba or Aruba but not bad. Those places are like flour under your feet, sand here is course salt. Beach volleyball is sporadic but occurs twice a day. It’s dangerous, heard of a at least two people get hurt playing, be careful. Lots of stairs to the beach but there is an elevator. Rooms Rooms are spacious, we had a junior suite on the first floor, huge balcony no ocean view but heard the ocean. Stayed in Room 1100s which was steps away from main lobby and buffet and bar, beach about a 1 min walk. Good location as it wasn’t far from the restaurants or beach. Rooms are not sound proof so you hear everything going on outside the room, and above your room if on a bottom floor, annoying if you want to sleep in. Our room did not have a handle on the patio side door to enter, seemed odd. Entertainment Night time entertainment is good, lots of live singers and musicians playing the piano. Hotel offers excursions, heard people talk about how good they were, especially the national park. Didn’t do any so no first hand knowledge. They ranged from 80 to 120 a person usd. The tour operator mentioned the half day trips are more worth it. He was honest and available often. You can go to town, the boats takes you to the main land and it’s a 40 usd cab ride each way. There are people at the lobby and beach that ask how there service is, that’s a nice touch. Other hotel staff randomly come up and make conversation, seemed thoughtful and engaging. Make sure you check in the night before so you and your company can sit together. Keep your check out ticket as they ask for it to get on the boat. Overall there is a lot of waiting for transfers. Wait to get off the bus, wait for luggage, then wait for the bus, then wait for luggage. There is a lot of waiting. Airport does not allow lighters and won’t let you put them in your checked bag. Duty free has lots of cheap alcohol but no good shopping for other stuff. There is a restaurant at the airport after security, didn’t check it out.

Excellent Resort

My wife and I stay here from April 8th to 15th in Villa 11 (second floor) and had a wonderful time. As soon as we arrived and walk into the front door a Customer Service Agent greeted us and made our A La Carte Restaurant reservations (5 A La Cartes for 8pm). A week before arriving, we sent an e-mail on a room request and the same Customer Service Agent reply back to us the same day. Every time we see this Customer Service Agent in the lobby she always greeted us and she remembered our last name. I would like to mention her name however, I'm afraid she will get thousand's of e-mails request (lol). There is nothing bad to say about this resort. The staff are so friendly and the service was excellent. As far as being a family resort in May, this will not stop us of returning next year. Of all the resorts we have been at in the last 25 years, this resort was the best and because of that and the excellent service they provided, we will return.

Excellent!

Just got back from a week in April 2018. All Great! Excellent food, super clean, Can’t think of too much negative things to say about the resort. Just some things that I would mention: You really need to have lots of $1 US bills ready for tips, from the baggage handlers at the airport, bus drivers and guides, boat helpers, tour guides, butler service at the beach and pools, waiters, waitresses etc. Some of these people, especially those not affiliated with the resort sometimes will even request a tip. It’s better to buy rum and cigars in the hotel gift shop then the duty free at the Samana airport when leaving. Prices are much better. Also, at the departure airport in Samana, other than the $25US lounge, there is only one restaurant available which is very expensive, (example: a hamburger and fries is $16.50 US) . I would suggest possibly making to-go sandwiches at the resort, as long as it will get through airport screening.
