Trip was ok, but drinks...

Trip was ok, but drinks and food was terrible.Everybody was asking for tips, instead of wait for every person to give the tips according to the service, we are on vacation and that thing aggravates and dont lets enjoy, give a good service and let the people decide on tips.

Not worth it .

Majority of the time was spent traveling and waiting to travel. By the time you get to saona your just drained. The food wasn't that great and you get hounded to pay $95 for pictures you didn't even want to take. The beach is beautiful but you spend 2 hrs there and everything else is transport.

We loved this tour, everything was great and organized. And most importantly, the cost of the tour was two times cheaper than expected in the resort ..

This is mentioned as an “all day trip”, but a portion of it is going to and from Soana island. First you go to this small “shopping center”. The store had a few items but nothing had prices on them, and it kind of seems like if you say you’re not from DR you’ll get charged a higher price. (But I could be wrong). There’s a little convenience like store next door where you can get empanadas. They were good, but the chicken was a little dry. There’s a bout a good number of people waiting to get on the speed boats/catamarans but you go based on your group (people who got on the same bus as you) When you get off the bus (and I hate to say this) IGNORE the people that approach you. They will follow you in an palms or stalker like fashion. I did however manage to get a $20 towel for $10. If you’re prone to getting motion sickness this isn’t the excursion for you. There was also a lot of air going towards your face- at points I felt like I couldn’t catch my breath. When you get to the “natural pool” you’re there for quote a bit. My fingers were turning into prunes. They said lunch was going to be from 12-1, but it didn’t start until 12:30. Lunch was chicken or pork, “lobster” spaghetti (no pieces of lobster) rice with peas, potato salad, a deconstructed salad (all ingredients were separate), and pineapple. The food was really good, but the chicken was dry. Everyone eats at the same time, so when you see a line forming- get on it! It grows quickly. There’s piña coladas in pineapples but they’re $10 On Saona Island, there are people also trying to sell you stuff, as well as a few masseurs. The water was nice. The atmosphere was nice. Definitely a placed I’d go to again. Highly recommended

Probably wouldn’t choose this one

I will say the guides and people we came in contact with were as sweet as possible, very kind & caring. However we waited 1.5 hrs to be picked up in the am. The tour said there would be max 50 people and there were 60, so very crowded on the bus & speed boat. Drink when u return from the tour because the bathroom size Dixie cups they served “only” cheap rum, coke or sprite was nasty. The music was out of control loud during the trip.. on the boat & beach. The food was nothing to be desired. The return trip transfers were scary. We got dropped off on the side of a highway to get into a van. But we did get back safe..!!

the overall is good. natural pool was great. island was great. the sale boat was really nice. really nice crew. issue with this tour 1. sped boat is small and rockey. 2. photographers are on your face to take pictures and buy them. 3. we switched boats too many times. this is cheap on the tour to save money docking large boats. 4. they are all about getting tips and trying to sell you stuff. 5. stopped by a shop in the middle of no where. what is the point of that ? 6. not well organized. lots of confusion who lead and who need to do what

Okay but long journey

Island was beautiful but the transportation was an adventure on it’s own. We had to bus to a bus, take a speed boat to the island, take a speed boat from the island to a catamaran, catamaran to another speed boat and then back on the bus to your hotel. All in all it was okay but if you’re staying at one of the resorts in Punta Cana just be prepared to travel for a few hours.

Fun day trip to Isla Saona
Naralys_C
, Jul 2021
I had a great time on this day trip with my significant other. Our tour guide was Cristian and driver was Barriga. Cristian was very funny, energetic, knowledgeable and organized. He always kept count of everyone in the group and was very organized with the pick up at other hotels. The company confirmed with me our pick up time the night before via message for 6:45am, and at 6:43 Cristian was prompt and waiting at the lobby for us. The natural pool was very cool as we got to see huge starfish. The saona island was beautiful. Our bbq lunch at the island was delicious. The only negative I have is the people at the island constantly harassing you to let them massage you. A few women touched me when asking if I would like a massage and I was very uncomfortable with that. But that has nothing to do with the company, so they get 5 stars.
