The guide, Benjamin, and the rest of the team were stellar!!! Everyone was so nice and friendly! The food was enjoyable as well! Our photographer, Leandro did amazing. He is an excellent coach for taking perfect pictures (poses, made sure to tell me about a tag sticking out, out of place hair, etc). The speedboat ride was a bit rough on the back but I appreciated the smaller boat with less passengers. Also it was a nice boat, unlike some other small ones I saw. We had about 10 in my group but I saw many other boats full of people. The beach speaks for itself. The team did an excellent job getting us dancing and having fun on the catamaran back. I enjoyed every minute of this experience.

Everything was perfect ! Our private shuttle was waiting for us at the exact meeting time at the hotel, top speed boat transport, paradise island without too many people, refreshing drinks, we went to the natural pool and had the chance to see the starfish. Our guide was very friendly and spoke French. Return to the hotel with our private shuttle, everything was smooth! Perfect.

Thanks to a group of energized Americans, we spent a superb day in a crazy atmosphere! The island of Saona is indeed heavenly but the short time on the island does not really allow us to get away from the beach where the group was to be able to visit more. The natural swimming pool is just incredible, and we were able to take wonderful photos thanks to a photographer on site. The downside was the price of the photos that had to be negotiated hard, the unappetizing lunch buffet and the wait for the bus (about 45 minutes to 1 hour late in the morning)
