About your hotel
Set in acres of lush tropical gardens with panoramic views of the pristine sugar-white sands, the Bahia Principe Grand El Portillo is set along the crystal clear shoreline of Samaná Bay, known for its laid-back European vibe that’s "as strong as espresso", according to Lonely Planet.

You’ll soak up the Caribbean sun in style at one of two swimming pools, lined with sundeck loungers and whispering palm trees. A children’s water park, onsite gym, tennis court, volleyball pitch, kids and teen club, and a beach-side spa on El Portillo beach are also on site.

The all-inclusive package includes all meals, local drinks, soft drinks, and beer. There are six restaurants, including one on the beachfront, where you can watch the sunset and stunning scenery.  Besides seafood, Brazilian, Italian, Greek and Italian à la carte restaurants, the main eatery serves international cuisine as well as Caribbean specialties. You'll get three à la carte meals during your stay, and find a plethora of bars and a late-night discos if you'd like to salsa long into the night. 

Each air-conditioned room features a hydro-massage bathtub with shower, hairdryer, telephone, coffee machine, a TV, as well as a furnished balcony or terrace overlooking the tropical gardens or pool. Wi-Fi is free throughout.

Guests have direct access to the beach and water sports are plentiful — you can go boogie boarding, snorkel with tropical fish, kayak, or scuba dive to see the breath-taking marine life.

Beyond the hotel:
Outside the resort, "Samaná is a wonderful place to join Dominicans’ daily lives", says National Geographic. You can take a leisurely stroll along the colourful streets of Santa Bárbara de Samaná, where wooden houses are painted in bright, Caribbean hues, discover the fascinating Whale Museum home to a 40-foot female humpback whale skeleton — humpback whales migrate here in January-March.  

We'd also recommend an optional excursion to Los Haïtises National Park, on the north-eastern part of the island. This protected area offers spectacular limestone cliffs, sprawling mangroves, caverns, and sinkholes. You’ll visit the dark caves of the park by boat to marvel at the Dominican’s largest petroglyph collections, made by the indigenous Taino people that once called it home (supplements apply).
