I managed to get a room here for a night before flying out the next day. The staff was super helpful, and even picked me up from the bus stop/took me to the airport at 5:30am the next day. Absolutely plan on going back whenever I visit Santiago.

I stayed at SANA for 8 wonderful days. Great place quiet and nice relaxation place. Crews were wonderful to assist and meet your needs. Will return and can't wait. Oh the garden was a little hidden treasure in itself. I just fell in love all over again. Must visit.

I went to the Dominican Republic as part of a humanitarian trip. I stayed at SANA for 12 days with about 20 other teenagers and a few adults. Honestly, it was one of the best places we stayed the whole trip. When you first go through the gate it's like stepping right into the jungle. There's palm trees, flowers, and...

My 2 teenagers and I had another wonderful vacation in the Dominican. We again returned to Sana, where Frank, the Sana ambassador, made sure that all of our needs were met. He helped us find some beautiful secluded beaches to enjoy. We decided to avoid the crowds of tourists and blend in with the wonderful Dominican people and their culture....

Sana Secret Garden is the most exotic, tranquil, and a great place for the healing of the body, mind and spirit.

What an idyllic place! I had an overnight stay in November with 3 relatives and in January took a group of 18 people who absolutely fell in love with the place. Flower and fruit gardens, outdoor fire pit, lovely evening settings, and simple, clean accommodations make for an economical delightful stay. You would never know you are under 15 minutes...
