Balcones del Atlantico
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This a nice condo hotel, with a beautiful beach across the street, I mean wonderful beach! The place was empty because it is primarily used as a second home place for people from Santo Domingo. The owner happens to have 25 apartments that he uses to run a hotel, but it just lacks the same hotel level service that you would expect from a place like this. You also MUST have a car or four wheeler rented to even get around the complex. Samana is a rural area with a lot of natural beauty. We felt safe the entire time and there are plenty of excursions to do. Great restaurants around, run by Europeans, serving fresh seafood. It is chill place, do not expect a resort type experience, it is very remote and rural.
This is a Lux apart-hotel with really nice houses...and expenses.Be sure you call before to know the kind of house they assign to you.Common areas has a large swimming pool and just at the end, crossing the road one of the best beaches in Dominican Republic.Enjoy long beach walks with a fantastic restaurant on the beach!
This was a remarkable experience for me as I enjoyed a week in Paradise at this exotic location at Balcones Del Atlantico. The customer service was excellent, prompt and eager to assist. They did not disappoint. It isn't an all inclusive hotel and it is a short walk, (very short) walk to the beach. More like your very own condo right off the ocean. The beach is so beautiful, absolutely break-taking. I took a picture of it and it is my screensaver at work now. The landscaping was Grade A beautiful and my room was in top condition with a washer machine, living room, patio, Jacuzzi, full kitchen closet, enormous bed and at an affordable price. 24 hour armed security so you feel safe, but the highlight for me was the restaurant. It sits secluded, right on the beach, so that you are able to enjoy the most beautiful sunsets with great food. Ask for Eunice if you book and when you arrive. Eunice and her staff are very professional and accommodating. They made sure that my stay was pleasant which left me with a lasting impression of Samana. I plan on going back next year. I hope this helps.
Great place to relax with your family, very comfy apartments and private beach with a small park for kids. Very attentive staff and secure! The jacuzzi at the apt is very romantic and cozy. Not a good option to go on spring break (too much people on the street)
We rented a "beach front" apartment through VRBO which showed a photo of couches by the beach so as to "Relax in Paradise". The apartment was actually 1,000 feet away from the beach with absolutely no view (except of the half dozen feral cats lying on the patio couches). To access the beach area from the apartment complex requires crossing a busy road, which is the case for all accommodations in Las Terrenas. The beach itself is narrow and has just a few spots where one can walk into the water without water shoes. Besides the one expensive restaurant attached to the apartment complex, other restaurants are a 30 minute walk away. The supermarket is a 10 minute drive by car. We made the mistake of renting a car. DON'T!! Also, don't walk at night which means you have to take taxis to go into town.The apartment complex is attractive with beautiful grounds but is a ghost town during weekdays. Occupancy was less than 10% and it showed.So do yourselves a favor and if you really want to go to Las Terrenas, stay in town or in an all-inclusive.
