What You Can Expect
Meet your friendly crew on board as you sail to the 'Natural Pool' lagoon for a stop to explore the marine life in the various rock pools there. Enjoy a provided cocktail while taking in the views and exploring the area's natural resources.
Transfer to a speedboat for the second leg of the trip to Saona Island, a pristine setting favored by the film industry from its prototypical 'desert island' look. When the boat docks, enjoy a barbecue lunch on the beach amongst the coconut palms.
Spend the next three hours at your leisure; relax on the soft sand, swim in the tranquil aqua waters, stroll along the beach or start a game of pickup beach volleyball. You can even learn the traditional Dominican 'merengue' with the crew.
When your afternoon on Saona Island is finished, climb back aboard the catamaran and enjoy an open bar on your cruise back to the La Romana dock. Your day of relaxation ends with drop-off at your hotel.
It was wonderful. We had a good time. The so called "natural pool" was amazing, we took pictures with starfish, my daughter and niece loved it.

Very disorganized. Called the tour company to confirm, was told to be in the lobby at 9:20am, nobody showed up. If it wasn't for another rep who called them again and advised we are suppose to be picked up from the beach, we would've missed it. Save ur money Sanoa Is nothing special, bad lunch servd
Ok this tour was a bit if a mixed bag.
I very much doubt that the beach they took us to was Saona Island! I think it was just a beach along the coast of DR! It wasn't even a nice beach as it was quite rocky underfoot.
Catamaran cruise was fun, blue lagoon swim lovely and speedboat trip back great
Had to email / phone to arrange pick up, which was not acceptable. The local company ignored all my emails. Phoned them day before trip and I was hung up on twice. Repeatedly emailed Viator and they eventually confirmed pick up time that night. Disgusted that I now came home to a 15 bill on my phone for having to arrange my own pick up - and those calls still didn't sort it out but total waste of money and time while I was supposed to be relaxing on holiday. Actual day trip was good but this experience made the whole thing very stressful and expensive.
I received very little information when I booked this trip which made it seem very unorganized. The catamaran cruise was my favorite part of the trip, the staff was awesome and made it fun and enjoyable. The time on Saona Island seemed too long. I didn't eat the lunch, by the time I went to get food everything was covered in flies. There were a lot of bugs leading to a lot of bug bites. The speed boat trip and swim in the blue lagoon were fun. If I were to do a trip like this again I would want to see an estimated time schedule of everything on the trip before booking. This trip was fun, just not sure if it was the right trip for me.
This tour was the worst from the poor transportation pick up to the drop off on the beach. The on deck music and entertainment was poor,loud and constant. The lunch got me sick flies and broken tables no where to sit except on dirty old and stained plastic beach chairs. The water was rough and merely.
The excursion was by far unorganized. It seemed as if they overbooked people to come on the Saona Island excursion. Several people had to wait in a middle island for a long time until the excursion began. The staff barely spoke in English to the non-spanish speakers, and only did so when asked.
