  • During my stay at Boca Chica we take a tour of isla Saona, fun, it included snorkeling, food, beverage, catamaran and enjoy the natural swimming pool that was impressive. It's nice to know the wonders and beauties of our country! A good place to go with family!

  • Went to the beach on a catamaran with a guided tour. The beach is really very beautiful, the water pure and clear. In principle, more and have nothing to write, but the trip has made a lasting impression.

  • Beautiful Gorgeous Awesome. But just like the rest of my experience in DR. Food was over rated (by a ton) and if you look one inch from the resort..... Rules would go a long way too. There were topless fatties, not so fatties and kids. To see a woman topless in another country is one thing but not kids. Vendors are annoying and sell garbage. What a shame. It is so beautiful.
  • Excellent place for holiday!! Saona Island tour was one of the best tours we done during our 14 days honeymoon trip spent in Secrets Royal Beach Resort, Punta Cana. Absolutely loved it, and I do recommend it highly. Different people have different expectations resulting in a different ratings and reviews. Please go and visit the place, experience it and make your own opinions of it. Me and my hubby will be going back there for one of our anniversaries for sure!!! One of best holidays ever!!
  • Ots a very beautifully island with white sand beaches located in the east coast of the Dominican Republic its a part of the National Park, its a very busy island a lot of tourist from all over the world go to discover that island, its very important place for tourists attractions, if you come for holiday in the Dominican Republic don't forget to check it out.
  • This island is definitely a paradise on the earth ! Crystal clear water and long white sandy beach. We had amazing time. BBQ on the beach was delicious. Really recommend trip to Isla Saona. One day we will come back. 5*
  • Absolutely stunning paradise. It’s hard to describe. Crystal clear water, soothing ocean breeze. Tropical nature at its finest. Listen and you’ll hear the crows speaking to each other, it’s truly fascinating. You can no longer handle the starfish in the ocean as the Dominican government has prohibited it.
