My husband and I spent 7 nights here and enjoyed every minute. We flew in to the Samana El Catey airport which was a 45-60 min van ride to the resort. The only American airline that flys to this airport is JetBlue out of JFK. It would be amazing if more airlines could fly here, we would definitely vacation here more often if so. We are from Pittsburgh and needed to fly to NYC before we could fly to Samana, but this just meant an extra few days in NYC! We had a shared shuttle to the resort thru SolTours. It was nice to see the countryside, but everyone drives very quick, in and out, motorcyclists with no helmets anywhere and it was a little nerve-wracking. Check-in at the mainland was chaotic. It seemed hard to find everyone's paperwork, etc. I would think this could be a little more structured. We stayed in the main hotel building which was very nice because we were in the center of everything - lobby, buffet, pools, gym, spa We had a room on the 5th floor overlooking the ocean. (this was after-requesting a room change, we got very lucky to have a room change though as the resort was at capacity). Wi-Fi worked great in the room with the exception of one day. Twice we had the butler fill our jetted tub. They spread rose petals and brought aromatic scents. This was very nice. We ate dinner at each of the a la cartes, as well as at the buffet. We felt the food was excellent everywhere. For lunch, we would eat at the lobby buffet, beach snack bar or the upper pool buffet. All were very good with the upper pool buffet (which is Rodizio at night) being our favorite. Pools were nice but I wish that music were played more. We visited all the beaches (including the public beach) and enjoyed them all. We brought our own snorkel gear, which I am glad of because the resort limits you to 1hr snorkel rental at a time. We saw lots of starfish, reef squid, colorful fish, shells. The water can be a little rocky in places, I suggest bringing beach shoes. We played a few of the daytime games which was fun to get involved and meet the staff and other vacationers. We went to a few of the nighttime shows including the Friday night beach party at the public resort. Love the Bahia Principe theme song so much that we bought a CD from the ent staff. Ent staff would dance with guests up front before shows started which was fun, but no need to come to show till 30 mins after listed start time! Bar staff was very good and the drinks were flowing and yummy. Missing a gin fizz right about now! We had a 1 hour couples massage at the spa and I thought it was very good. Just enough pressure and very relaxing. Was fun to hang out in lobby in the evenings and socialize with other guests. At night the party would continue to the public beach if enough people wanted to. Cant wait to come back!!More

This is our second visit in Dominican Republic (dreams puntacana) and 4th in carabien (mexico - iberostar paraiso lindo, cuba playa costa verde). So far this is the best place we have ever been! rooms (modern, marble, free wifi, jacuzzi), food delicious! Buffet with top quality products and choice of food, we are not great fans of ala card restaurants but Brasilian and don pablo where Great! Staff was very professional and genuinely nice. Yunior from animation team TOP MAN! beach was so nice that we have only spent 1 day at swimming pool just to test it out. Water clear unless waves are a bit stronger. If you love Snorkeling you can get equipment for free and you are brave enough, then you could swim around the whole island or just around tiny one 100m from the beach. There are usual things to do like aerobic, yoga, volleyball, pingpong, balls, spanish and dance lessons, kayaks, katamaran, disco on public beach. Evening entertainment. And most of all... NO KIDS! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO SPEND FEW HUNDRED QUID MORE AND GO TO THIS HEAVEN ON EARTH! Sorry for my poor englishMore
Ideal escape - paradise!
We really needed a relaxing holiday after a hectic work period & this place didn't disappoint. The private beaches were absolutely blissful and exactly the calming tropical breakaway that we needed. Thanks to everyone who made our stay so relaxing. Tips: try to book into a restaurant every night if you can! Personally the whole buffet thing isn't for me but the restaurants are lovely. If you're travelling Jan-March you have to see the humpback whales. We watched a mother teaching her calf to swim, it was amazing! Also, pay the extra 200 quid and get a private taxi down to the Samana bay. It was the best decision we made. It's a long journey otherwise.More

Oh wow paradise and it's amazing the place is breathtaking and sense of welcome as soon as you reach the island the staff are frendly and very professional also will do anything to satisfy. The food is wonderful and So much choice the buffet is so so fresh and delicious the restaurant are out of this world and the cocktail are to die for coco loco wow oh wow also the banana mammas in the lobby are the best drink I've ever had . The place is very clean and tidy and very spacious and comfortable the rooms are amazing we had a villa near the spa and found it to be perfect not to far to get to the main hotel . The entertainment is low key but good and the beach bar is open late as the lobby and other bars close at 12 . But room service is 24 7 and great . Beds are huge and comfortable the cleaners are very good and the maids are amazing very helpful . Must go early March to see whales being born in harbour wow oh wow must see . The public beach is a stones throw away and there are market stalls along the way you get little gifts ect and good prices to very friendly fokes and stunning beach closed to public at 6 only open to the hotel as boats gone to main land . Definitely paradise will return for sure . Coach trip is a killer 6 hrs take drinks as only stops once and it's hot but when u arrive it's all worth it trust meMore
A beautiful,relaxing holiday
My husband and I were looking for a relaxing break and this hotel did not disappoint. The location,the service and the food were all first class. I wish I was able to remember staff names but,to be honest,everyone was exceptional.Katrina,Darling,Virginia,the restaurant manager,to name just a few,invariably offered their service with a smile and sometimes even with a song and dance! Our room,206 in the main building,was spacious and as well as having a huge balcony had an ocean view.It was perfect for us. All in all this was a superb hotel.More
