Fodor's Review

This all-inclusive resort—the most expensive and highest rated of the four Bahía Príncipes in Samaná—hogs two-thirds of the gorgeous island for itself, but you can't deny that it has the best beaches, pools, and recreational choices of any area resort. Twice-daily ferries shuttle you from the mainland in about 15 minutes. The oversized guestrooms are notably attractive; each has a balcony or terrace that looks out over the ocean, with a canopy bed and a whirlpool

bath separated by a glass partition. Service is a high point—and you will be treated with care by the hard-working Dominican staff. The peppy "animation" team puts on shows each night.
