The setting is remote, but stunningly beautiful, a tropical paradise! The white sandy beaches, lined with coconut palms are spectacular and only accessible from the villa or by boat. The villa sits in very well kept tropical gardens with views out to the beach and bay beyond. The villa is large, beautiful colonial style and very well managed. We were very comfortable. The pool is excellent, large, very clean and very refreshing. Samana is fascinating, never a dull moment...., but always friendly. I'd recommend the zip wire, boat trips, the waterfall and some of the local beach front or hill top restaurants are fantastic. There is a great beachfront restaurant a short walk from the villa. If you like horse riding or quad bikes, there are plenty of opportunities. Hiring a good SUV is essential, driving is an interesting experience, you won't get to the best places in an ordinary car. Also Spanish is useful, there is very little English spoken, although we got by none. To sum up, we had a wonderful time sampling life in Dominican Republic, with a few adventures along the way and staying in a breath-taking location. We would go back in a heartbeat!! Fab!!
