Our stay was glorious. The view, the infiniti pool, the staff (Raul and Yumilky were amazing) and the food were fantastic. Besides the views and location, the stars of our stay were the four dogs (Pinky, Macho, Brownie and Duchesa) who were the sweetest things ever. We couldn't get enough of them. Our rooms were simple and super clean with ocean views and accessed via sliding door through the amazing patio area with a fantastic seating area and, of course, gorgeous ocean views. The bathroom was nice and clean also with ocean views, and is accessed from outside the room just next door through the patio area. Couple considerations: the shower head needs changing as water wasn't coming out properly. Also the sliding doors to the rooms didn't seem to lock (or maybe we weren't doing it right!). It was fine since the property is pretty much secluded, gated and very quiet.
Our host, Michael was great and told us the wonderful beaches to visit in the area - Playa Rincon is a must. We had a rental car and getting around was super easy with beautiful, countryside drives. Forget all the overly touristy resorts- the Samana/Las Galeras area is the only place to go to in the DR. Beaches are quiet and natural and breathtakingly beautiful. We made the mistake of staying at an all-inclusive in Bavaro the first two days of our trip. If we knew better we would have spent our whole time here!
