This hotel and property is one of the most beautiful i/we have ever stayed at... A full 5. However, be aware that there is nothing interesting to see in the city Samana so be prepared to take long excursion or simply relax at the property.

Peaceful, relaxing and totally exclusive, The Bannister Hotel overlooks a stunning marina in Samana Bay in one of the most …More
It's a very tranquil, restful place with all comforts. The pool and it's view are amazing. The kitchen is fully stocked and the washer/dryer are superb in helping you pack light. Prepare outside trips before arriving, as there are many sightseeing places to visit nearby. The local port town has not much to offer, plenty of people hassling, so plan day trips in advance to avoid going through that. Whale watching and other boat trips are not for everyone- they can be bumpy, dangerous and nauseating, especially if you have kids. Overall, it's a wonderful place to stay.
"I love the animation crew (entertainers) and staff"
This hotel was one of five hotels that I reserved during my two week vacation in DR.
The least expensive and yet it surprised me. My wife and my teenage sons all agree, one of the most beautiful beach we seen with plenty of marine life to discover.
A big plus for the entertainers, they are great dancers plus they kept the night club alive every night.
We hope to see Yessi and her dance crew again.
