4 couples booking a Feb 2013 vacation to Samana @ Bahia El Portillo and have a few questions:

Transfer time from El Catey airport to Bahia El Portillo
Normal weather in February, is it the rainy season
Is there a good transfer company to book with from El Catey
Is there a in the water pool bar at the resort
Is Las Terrenas safe and a walkable distance from Bahia El Portillo

Thanks

Transfer time for us was about 90 min. Our vacation packages include transfers to and from airport.

There is no swim up pool bar.

We had rain overnight almost every day. A few days we had rain at lunch time just as the beach BBQ was being set up. It didn’t last long though.

We took a cab into Las Terranas and had him pick us up a couple of hours later. You can walk to town along the beach, but it takes a while.

The beach is amazing and so is the scenery. Enjoy your vacation. We will definitely go back there.

Since most of the answers have been given from the last post above,
i can tell you about private TAXI Transportation from SAMANA International Airport "EL CATEY"
to Gran Bahia Portillo Hotel in Las Terrenas.

TAXI TRANSFER takes only about 20 minutes using the brand new SCENIC highway called “Boulevard del Atlantico”,
there are a few TAXI Companies promoting their services online in the GO SAMANA Tourism Website.
