We just returned from Club Bonito on 12/21/03. We had a wonderful experience and would recommend this hotel to anyone, especially to independent travelers. We speak Spanish, but if you need English, someone on staff can speak it. The staff was so nice and friendly and helpful. Our room had a huge terrace overlooking the ocean, and every morning we could hear the ocean at sunrise. The beautiful room had a king size bed (not all the rooms have king size so ask for it) and everything was very clean. We hired a local with a small boat from the beach in front of the hotel who took us to Playa Rincon (looks just like Hawaii) every day for $10, and also to Playa Fronton for the same price. The week before Christmas is ideal!--we almost had the place to ourselves, including the beaches. You do need to bring mosquito repellent for evenings, but in December they weren't overwhelming. The breakfast was quite good, the dinners okay. The pool was nice. They have a gated entrance for your car. The road from Samana was in pretty good shape except for one really bad stretch a few miles out of Samana where there was so little pavement left between the potholes it was difficult to drive in between them. Also watch out for three extremely deep ditches across the road in front of the Gran Bahia at the top of the hill. The Gran Bahia should do something about this. The best way to drive this stretch is to let a local get in front of you and then you won't get surprised by the bumps and potholes. We had such a good time here and we were so relaxed we didn't want to leave. We're definitely coming back next year during the same week! The beautiful Samana peninsula is unforgettable.
