    Our second time and we will be back next years

    Nice place and very good help from reception, they do their best to satisfy your needs. All employees will help with a smile! You won't be disappointed. We appreciate the no chairs reservations before 8am . You will get a place on the beach or pool without getting up early.

    Bugs in the bed

    Normally I don’t add reviews online, but this time I have to. Will try to pick nice words for a very frustrated situation. Currently it’s our first day at the resort, spent two hours for the check in, which crazy long time to wait in the hot weather. At night discovered that the bed of my daughter has bugs, I have attached the pictures, and went again through the frustration of dealing with the front desk. Rest of the resort looks fine. Will see if more surprises are there for the rest of the stay.

    A memorable vacation at Bahia El Portillo in Samana

    This is the 3rd time visiting the Bahia Grand El Portillo, however this time was special as we celebrated my mums 85th birthday and my son and granddaughter also joined us along with a close couple. We were not disappointed and received warm greetings by the staff who remembered us - felt like coming home. The resort is well maintained with nice grounds, extremely clean and an abundance of food and beverage choices. Our rooms had all the key amenities, good A/C, and comfortable beds. The beach is beautiful and you can take long walks in both directions. Swimming was excellent with clear water and sandy bottom. I certainly saw more entertainment options this year and lots going on if you want to participate. This is a hidden gem in Samana but it is becoming more popular. I would not hesitate to recommend the resort and are looking forward to going back. The staff are very welcoming and I would like to recognise the following staff: Francisco and Yolanda at the beach lunch area, Natty and Jesse at the main breakfast buffet, Pablo the Manager of the Restaurants, Martina at the Sportsbar, Julian at the Privelege Beach area and Zoraida, Walkins and Alfredo at the Privelege Concierge. There are many others that I have forgotten their names. Thanks for making our stay special.
