It is with great interest that I read the posts on this forum. I started off leaning toward the BGP Samana for our holidays. After the problems that Natalie and Tim reported looked like they were not getting sorted out we switched to the BGP El Portillo.
I read the posts but for the life of me I wonder aloud if the reviews of the resorts are even from the same resorts. I read the ones here and on tripadvisor.
There are rats, sewage, and poor food and it is only a two star in one review and then a couple with two teenage children that are at the same resort during the same time frame rated it as a five star resort. Construction is one thing but raw sewage is another.
I know that reviews are all in the eyes of the beholder but if Air Transat is not selling trips to these resorts why are they advertising for the BGP Samana and not the El Portillo in the Saturday Toronto Star.
I wander what is going on. Have the people going down on January 6th or on the thirteenth heard anything?
Just thought I would start this new thread to see what peoples thoughts are.
