Luxury Bahia Principe Samana
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Service was far from perfect. Food was rarly hot. Drinks never made the same way twice. Beach was full of trash daily. Scuba never happened and the excursion we purchased was far from what we were promised.
Having stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa in Samana just 9 months ago and having a wonderful time encouraged me to consider the Luxury Bahia Principe Samana as our next holiday vacation.The Luxury Bahia Principe Samana is an exceptional resort for those that want to totally relax in one of the most beautiful settings that I have ever seen in many years of travelling. It is set on the edge of a coastal cliff on Samana bay in the Dominican Republic . This area of DR is far away from the packed tourism areas like Punta Cana and Puerta Plata and because of that there is a much greater sense that you are seeing the real Dominican Republic . With vast unspoiled views of palm tree covered mountains and winding roads that open up to coastal views that are breath taking.The hotel itself is the most well maintained resort property I have ever seen and the level of cleanliness is unprecedented in the Caribbean , everything looks fresh and inviting and goes a long way to making you feel relaxed and confident that the management are working hard to maintain an impeccable standard for its guests. The staff consistently go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and appreciated...if you need or want anything it will be provided....and usually without asking because they are always trying to anticipate what can make your stay as best as possible.The Food: I honestly had a problem getting through the entire buffet before my plate was full of food items that looked too good to pass up. Typical lunch fare was of the quality that you might find at the best dinner buffets at other resorts and dinner was always chocked full of freshly prepared succulent dishes to satisfy every palette. If this sounds to good to be true ...it isn't. Having just come back from Cuba where the food can be less than desirable, I can tell you that I know good grub when I see it !Our room was 222 overlooking Samana Bay and was furnished with a four poster king size bed and my kind of décor that made me feel like I didn't want to ever go home. Each night we would order room service for the next morning , so we could wake up to fresh brewed coffee, fruit plates and pastries out on our balcony with the warm morning sun illuminating the bay, palm trees and distant sandy shores along the coast...throw in some flocks of pelicans flying by and we were feeling like we were definitely in the right place.If you are looking for wild night life or high energy crowds of over zealous tourists this is not your resort....it caters to mostly people between 40 to 60 as far as I could see and its small size guarantees that you will feel like you have plenty of room to unwind and chillax.Excursions: Your travel rep will offer you a variety of excursions in the area including an eco tour by boat, horseback ride to El Salto del Limon waterfalls and a scenic drive out to the gorgeous Playa Rincon Beach.There is also the small town of Samana about 15 minute drive from the hotel and this is where they have a car rental service right beside western union.....our group of four ended up driving to the waterfalls and the Playa Rincon beach and really enjoyed the freedom to explore on our own time rather that with the hotels tours. If you are the adventurous type then there is no better way to discover this strikingly beautiful area of DR.
A fantastic experience at this beautiful, quaint, boutique style hotel. Will definitely return for the quiet and its charm. I love the fact that you don't have to fight for a chair either at the pool or the beach. Service by all was outstanding. Food was very good but not outstanding. Overall facility was very clean and pristine.
I love the Nice Hotel and the excellent Services. Great staff very Kind. The food is very good. They make you feel at home. The room was very nice and clean I love Luxury bahia principe samana The staff is very professional...
This was a great experience albeit an unexpected one! We were looking for a last minute girls getaway and didn't realize we had booked ourselves at a couples resort instead! Everyone seemed confused when they saw us arrive - however, we quickly made this into a very enjoyable experience. The hotel itself was beautiful - the rooms, the views - all stunning - however the staff are what made all the difference at this hotel. Food was absolutely delicious - buffet, snacks and restaurants! Couldn't have asked for better. Spa services were OK. Nightly entertainment was definitely tailored to the couples and romantic getaway crowd - however they would let us play our music at the bar and staff would ensure were entertained while not disturbing other guests. There were daily games at the pool that were fun! We won coffee and rum. Beach - the only non wow portion of this location....however you could take a daily water taxi to the levantado island right across for free where the beach was absolutely incredible. Overall a great hotel a definite 5 star in look, feel and services and a definite fun experience
