Island is worth it, but transportation is too long!
Becky_A
, Aug 2021
Saona is a MUST do....but this particular excursion could be better. Things I liked: -stopping at the natural pools (blue Lagoon) area for 45 minutes -food at Saona was REALLY good! -Saona is an amazing beach Things I didn't like: -Transportation...we got picked up at 7 a.m. (which we expected) and didn't get back until 8 p.m. (didn't expect that!) I understand you have to make a lot of stops, but the travel time was 4 hours before we even got on the water! If I could redo this I would get our own transportation to and from the port and schedule the tour from there. That would have saved us at least 6 hours. Also, you rode a speed boat there and catamaran back. The rode back is long. We enjoyed it though...but if you don't want a slow ride back I'd opt for speed boat both ways and stay on the island for longer!

A lot of waiting around
Jen

The day was very very very long. Don’t book this trip if you want to go straight to the island back. There is a lot of waiting around. We were on the island for 1hr 20 minutes but from pick up to drop off was 11 hours. The island is beautiful as expected but there are alot of people, it’s very crowded. Overall it was a waste of nearly 12 hours just for 1 and a bit on the island

Meh

Good tour but pick up is extremely slow and takes you to every other hotel in the area to pick and drop other guests, adding 2 hours to your already hyperlong day that lasts 12 hours rather than the 10 hours anounced. Also they only give you lunch during all that time and it is very tasteless. Open bar is of water and bad soda, nothing else. Guide is fun at least.

Fun day trip with lots of photo opportunities and the chance to get a low cost massage on the beach.

I loved the massages on the beach and experiencing the calm of the Caribbean Sea. It was fun to take a speed boat and a catamaran for the different experiences. The photos they took were fun but we’re expensive to buy. If you are a tipper, bring a lot of cash because there are a lot of drivers, etc to tip along the way and back. The island does not have WiFi/ATM so any massages or drinks must be bought in cash. Overall, it was a fun excursion. Our guide, Jose, was amazingly helpful.

One day in paradise
Olivier_D

It was a real beautiful day. One day in paradise. We began with the catamaran. Very good vibes and lot of fun with the animation. After the beach of Saona was incredible, wonderful. After we came back with speed boat and did a stop in blue lagoon. Swim and show sea star. Exactly confirm to the description. Many thanks for this day. Just so sad to have loose photo taken by a professional

Ali was wonderful! It was a fun experience. The only issue is at the island everyone is constantly bothering you for money. Otherwise it was nice.

Tropical Excursion!
Samara_H
, Apr 2021
The day started off with my boyfriend and I missed the bus which waited at the wrong spot for only a couple of minutes, to us than paying $30 to get to the boat. Other than that, it really is a 5 out of 5, something you don't want to miss. The staff was so engaging and enthusiastic, you get to meet new people who basically become your family for the day. My favorite besides Saona Island was the shortstop we did at the "natural pool". It was such a great atmosphere with the sun sunshine, music playing, and all in the beautiful Caribbean sea. The only downfall is that hotel pick up/drop off, not only is it long and tiring but a bit unorganized and last minute...

Worse travel experience

The island was nice and the food was good. But the traveling to and from was horrible!! We did not take a speed boat back, like I thought we would. We only spent 2 hours at the beach and 9 hours traveling
