expectation greater than reality

After almost a 3 hour trip from the airport we arrived at about 8 pm. The resort was under renovations which we were not made aware of by the travel agent or by internet search. It would have been nice if during check in we were informed that possible challenges would exist. We had a room facing the construction and woke to hammers at about 0730. We asked to change rooms, which we were put in building 6. It smelled like mildew, furniture was falling apart, pillow smelled like dirty hair. This was a quiet resort with limited things to do therefore we spent all evenings in the room attempting to watch TV with intermittent service. It was challenging to communicate because we are not bilingual. The whole atmosphere was not warm and inviting. 2 of the 3 pools were under construction and only one buffet style place to eat. Incidentally, we spoke to a service gentleman because a large bug flew into the beans and he just scooped it out and kept walking. At check in we received a handout and when we wanted to explore Samana per their handout, we were told that this is out dated by 5 years. The gentleman who served us water accidentally tipped the empty glass over. I reached to pick it up from the table. It appeared to offend him and he said "excuse me" twice in a unpleasant voice. At check out we wanted to print our boarding pass but they had no paper. We checked out and had asked it the van in front was for our return to the airport. He reply, we don't do that.

Great hotel

I had a great time staying at this resort. Food was good but not a lot of selection in my opinion. Staff who stood for me were Mikiki and Lima. He was very friendly and very entertaining. The staff photographer Colocha approached us and gave us a photo shoot, which was quite an experience. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my stay, and I'd definitely recommend this place.
