What people are saying about La Romana

The tour was a lot of fun, snorkeling was very nice! There were some fish to see. The food was delicious, simple, but good... The transfer in the morning was on time, but we had to wait over an hour for some guests on the return trip ..The unexpected transfer actions were also a bit strange...?!?!That is a strange action by our standards.. It is nevertheless a beautiful and worthwhile excursion and we can only recommend it..

Really well organised and had soooo much fun on the catamaran and speedboat. The historical sight was really pleasant to venture and the Saona waters very amongst the most pristine that we have ever seen! Only I wish we anchored nearer the starfish to take a pic of them... My only regret honestly (I'm sure the starfish don't mind)...

Coach ride was long but was worth it. Great people looking after you on the boat and working very hard. Snorkelling was amazing and the island even more stunning. Fully recommend this to anyone. Just note it is a full day!

Fantastic tour, Christian the tour guide was excellent. Fantastic memories made.

It’s really great teams!!! They best guys!!! We are so happy and was safety !!!
