Great hotel..... very well appointed. This isn't one that looks better in the pictures. This one is better in person. Great staff at every turn. They deliver. We extended our stay due to this staff and the hotel. Nicely done.

Came here for a birthday weekend. Luxurious boutique hotel. The images online don’t do it justice. Beautifully decorated lobby and public spaces. The rooms were super spacious and for the prices this hotel is a true gem. Amazing a la carte breakfast included. Super cool infinity pool! It’s tucked away from the malecon in Samana. But still close enough to get to restaurants and whale watching tours in 5 min. Will be back.

We stumbled on this place while roaming around the Santana peninsula. We loved it so much we extended our stay to three nights instead of one. It was quiet, and beautiful. The pool is incredible, the view are amazing, the staff is so friendly and helpful. One morning we saw dolphins in the bay from our balcony. We enjoyed every minute and will definitely be back!!

We just returned from a 2 night stay at the Bannister. We were visiting the bay for a whale watch and looking for a mid priced clean hotel that would offer a pool and resturant. This was it and much more! It is stunning, modern, quiet and ocean front. It was fun to watch the yatchs come and go. The quality and price of the resturants was very good ( full breakfast included). When we arrived we were given a bump up to a ocean front suite as a nice surprise. All of the staff were so kind and went out of their way to be sure we were taken care of from the moment we drove in. We will be sure to return. Special thanks to front desk manager Wellington Bonilla. Tip to help find the hotel- look for sign Puerto Bahia, beautiful park like drive.

My wife, Sara, and I spent two nights here and were very impressed with our ocean view room and the service. We were so relaxed when here and couldn’t believe how quiet it was, considering the time of year. For the price, you can’t get anything close to the luxury & value stateside. Those coming to the DR should seriously consider the Bannister. We’ll be back for sure!
