Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
La Samana is simply paradise, from the moment you step in...- The views are breathtaking, the facility is beautiful and the service- phenomenal! I will definitely be back! From a cost perspective it's extremely high and this needs to be taken into account given the fact that you can find other "as good as" resorts that are more affordable...
