Thw location is quite excellent but the place is noisy at night. The shower did not give hot water and was quite lousy in general. The place was cheap and clean though so excellent for backpackers....

We have been there for almost a week and it was perfect. We were four staying in the same room and we didn't have any problem. The rooms are clean and they have enough to spend some days there. Is very well located (in the very center of Samana) so you can go walking everywhere. Besides, the owners are very...

We got a room with a broken shower and no hot water. The receptionist then found a room with hot water (working only upon request) but which had not been cleaned before. The bathroom was unbelievably dirty, sheets were not clean either. We asked for cleaning but they only washed the floor. The building and its equipment are in a...

I stayed here for 2 nights as part of a group of 11 (with ages spanning from 15 months to 61 yrs). The location is fantastic, it is so convenient both to the town/restaurants etc. and to the beach. The beach is a 10-15 minute easy walk away. Or you can concho for 20 pesos. The Caribe tours bus stop...

I travel a lot and my last visit to Santa Barbara de Samana (SAMANA) I stayed in the Hotel Mildania for about 3 months. They gave me a great monthly rate and for the area it was a bargain. The room was very clean with AC and cable T.V. and most enjoyed, the HOT water. There was a small cafe...

Samana was the most beautiful place I have ever been to in Dominican Republic yet, and I owe many thanks to Guillermo and his wife and the rest of the staff at Samana Backpackers for making it such a pleasant experience. His wife picked me up from the Caribe Tours bus stop in her car and drove me to the...

Cotubanama was great. It's about as close as you an get to the center of town, and has comfortable rooms (with A/C!) 24-hour (English-speaking) front desk support. This hotel is a great option for those of you who are more interested in actually experiencing the kind people of the DR as opposed to walling yourselves off from them at an...

During our week stay was all great. The employees were very friendly, the room was very clean and very comfortable. We had a sink in our room. We handled all the excursions and save a lot of money. I really highly recommend this backpackers.

Although it is advertised as backpackers friendly it is not unless you can book a room for five. I was given a stinky room - dirty sheets, noisy fan, no light in the bathroom, no hot water and water leaking the whole time. Although the room was interior and had no windows it was really noisy during the night, I...
