Fodor's, one of the most important sources of travel information and travel publications, has pronounced the peninsula of Samana as one of the 25 top travel destinations in 2013. (http://www.fodors.com/go-list/2013/)
Samana shares the title with Myanmar, New Zealand, Slovenia, Istanbul, Maldives and Easter Islands, among others. It is considered one of the top 25 "great values, newly accessible destinations, buzzy hotspots and travel-worthy events around the globe." And, Fodor's continues to say that "these are the top 25 trips to book right now".
Fodor's describes Samana as "a breath of fresh air...Secluded beaches, small hotels, friendly locals, and plenty of natural wonders, including great whale-watching from January through March, await in an area that has not (yet) experienced massive development."
In its section on Samana (http://www.fodors.com/go-list/2013/samana-peninsula/), Fodor's recommends Villa Serena as one of the best places to stay.
Villa Serena is grateful for such a high consideration and recommendation, and is looking forward to fulfilling and surpassing the expectations of its future guests!
