Rincon Beach is ranked among the 10 finest beaches in the world by its natural conditions. It is formed by several coves and slightly curved that extend about 3 km, white sand, transparent waters and immense coconut palm. Rincon Beach is a must see on any visitors list.

Very nice big and quiet hotel straight in harbor. Room was very spaceful, separate bedroom and big livingroom with kichen area and big balcony. Pool area was also lovely, but not very big. At my visiting time there were very few people in the hotel, so it was absolutely quiet. As this hotel is away from town and other places, you need definitely a transportation. Stuff was very helpful, polite and nice, Can´t say anything negative about this hotel. Just about the location, there is not much to... Read more

Gigantic, two-room with kitchen with an fantastic view of the water, marina. Would definitely stay again. Kitchen is ideal for those like me that fish and like to experience the local produce after a long day out. The bars and restaurant is priced fairly. Food was average quality. Select September and October and have the place to yourself. Very few english speaking associates so best to have someone who can speak Spanish with you if possible.

Its a very quiet place, beautifully structured from a mountain to the ocean. The food from Cafe del Mar is extraordinary, the other two restaurants are very good too. Capuccino is great! Service is outstanding. I was upgraded to a better room on request super smoothly thanks to the help of Mr. Wellington and Mr. David! Decided to stay one more day, yes, thats how great the stay was.

My wife and I chose this hotel due to good evaluations we had read about it and it delivered everything it promised. Beautiful location, comfy room and excellent team, with a very honorable mention to William, who managed to stand out on an already starred staff. I definitely recommend this lovely hotel for a getaway for two.

The staff here is very welcoming and helpful however we did have a few issues. When I placed our reservations for a sea view room it stated queen or king sized bed. It still states queen or king sized beds when booking. When we got there we were told only queen sized beds face ocean view? Not acceptable but we didn't argue. The hot water is not very hot, the food at Cafe de la Mar is subpar but the Dominican breakfast was delicious. I would love to return but I would need a king size bed and ple... Read more

Pros: * nice facilities, beautiful rooms, well equipped kitchenette * beautiful infinity pool, nice tennis courts * nice breakfast (a-la-crate) Cons: Basically- the service. also wi-fi and reception issues regarding the service - we stayed there during low season, and the hotel was literally empty. Even so, and even though we mentioned in the reservation that we are on our honeymoon, they didn't put us in a room with an ocean view, which was a bit disappointing, but still OK. At first we found... Read more

We stayed at the Bannister for the month of January 2017. We wanted a quiet place with the availability to travel to many different locations on the Samana pennisula. This was achieved and the. Marina activity kept the place hopping. We met people from all over the world on their sailboats and yachts. We want to give a shout out to the staff. They are all great and treated us like family through out our stay. They could not do enough for us. Everyone was happy and gladly interested in how... Read more
