Fodor's Review

This stylish marina complex smack on the Bay of Samaná has changed the face of tourism in this area and become the social center for the upscale residents, a safe harbor for visiting yachtsmen, and a reasonable option for international visitors. The open lobby area that segues to the marina is dramatic, with contemporary pillars, a proliferation of white and neutral shells, and commodious white seating facing forward. It's a stunner. The cuisine is memorable, from an exceptional alfresco Italian lunch at Le Regata trattoria to a gourmet lobster dinner at Café del Mar. The Bannister has an ambient spa, which is as relaxing as the chill music that gently plays and the massages (moderately-priced) that put you on another plane.
