What people are saying about Punta Cana

Saona Island trip definitely is great fun especially the quick stop at the Natural swimming pool. The buggy tour/trip didn't had a great start due to the lack of communication of our pick up time. I had to constantly chase this up. We were eventually told that our pick up time was at 8:20am but when we got to the reception, the driver was very early as some guests from the other hotels cancelled and went to our hotel. Because we weren't at the reception, the driver left without asking the reception to call us in our room. A new pick up time was allocated at 10:20 and the driver was almost one hour late. Apart from the bad start, the tour was certainly enjoyable.

Nothing for families and people who really want to snorkel for a long time!! A very well structured and beautiful day. The guides welcomed you very warmly. Arriving on the ship you could first feed the fish in the sea. Then we are in the water for 30 minutes, if you wanted to, you could swim/snorkel with the guides. Back on the boat, alcoholic drinks were served and music was turned on. The mood was great! Another break was made at sea (a section to stand on). Here, too, (alcoholic) drinks were even served on the sea. All in all a great atmosphere, with a mega beautiful view and funny guides. Can only be recommended!

Superb activity! Saona Island is breathtaking paradise!!! The trip by speedboat, the return by catamaran is perfect with the short stopover in the natural swimming pool at the top!! Same for the buggy we discover the country it's great everything is perfect the water hole etc. I say no more it is to be done!! Top value for money

Good evening the Excursion was very nice. But the transport from the hotel to the boats much less, too long ......

It was an amazing experience, I will be back again
